Twin Peaks (1990-1991): The TV Mini-Series That Reshaped the Murder Mystery Genre Forever

After almost three long years, I have finally finished watching Twin Peaks. Sorry, I just like to savor my treats for as long as possible, darlings. In a parallel universe lies a distinct copy of Riverdale that is so godly, so dreamy, so A-1 classy, so unworldly unalike, and actually, well, a good show, that […]

Quickie: Marvel’s The Avengers (2012)

3rd Viewing The Avengers is f-u-n. The Avengers changed the global scale of blockbuster movies forever. The Avengers made comic-book reformers believe in the inconceivable. It’s a flick that’s not only an action-charged escapade from start to finish but also one that amalgamates preciously entertaining conversations between a goofy amount of flamboyantly costumed characters trying […]

Quickie: Michael Haneke’s Funny Games (1997)

To hell with all you sick, sick b******* who liked this movie. Hold up. Wait a second… If you feel like unleashing your inner demons for two hours, then watch Michael Haneke’s Funny Games (1997). It has teenaged maniacs obnoxiously toying around with a bunch of—sorry to say this but it’s kind-of true—idiots, malicious carnage, […]

Quickie: Captain America The Winter Soldier (2014)

4th Viewing Has someone made a Mission Impossible joke about this movie yet? Someone has bound to have made one by now, right? I’ll hold back on mine then. Captain America: The Winter Soldier—AKA the Russo Brothers finding any possible way to make a lameass character, well, badass—is an unexpected spy, espionage thriller that makes […]

Quickie: Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs (1992)

3rd Viewing Tarantino Marathon Part I of X Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs: Hard evidence that the script is the heart of every film. The direction, cinematography, editing, production design, compositions, and visual effects can all be just “sufficient,” but if that heart of the film is as engaging as Hades’ crib, as animated as a […]

Yes, Avengers: Endgame Is Indeed the Greatest Experience in Marvel History

Avengers: Endgame is the kinda-but-sorta-not final chapter of the billion-dollar investment we dork and dorkettes have all been squirming and prophesying for to behold. It’s got fan service galore distributed in a dish that doesn’t appear as immoral as one may presume but rather transcends as one charmingly honorable medal. But in a dish so […]

A Short List of Reasons Why Apocalpyse Now (1979) is the Best War Movie Ever Fabricated

Rewatched First off, I’d like to quickly share with y’all my dandy checklist for what makes Apocalypse Now is one of my favorite films: • Does it have Marlon Brando? ☑️ • Does it have the greatest third act in the HISTORY OF CINEMA? ☑️ • Does it have the greatest death scene in the […]

David Fincher’s Fight Club (1999): The Definitive Movie That Got Me Into the Art of Film

4th Viewing It’s been about three years since I last saw Fight Club—a movie that’s been my all-time favorite for quite awhile now—so I decided to grant it a little revisit. I’ll indefinitely be rewatching some more of my all-time favorite movies so that I can reevaluate the order I have them placed in right […]

Claire Denis Takes Science-Fiction to a Whole Other Dimension With Her New Film High Life

A24 and long term in the business director Claire Denis, presents an epic noir that features more semen than Ted 2 had to offer, more predatory risks than a Logan Paul video, and the most sex-obsessed narrative in all of science-fiction history—barely beating out the cult film Basic Instinct, and Aldous Huxley’s classic novel Brave […]
