Christopher Nolan’s Tenet Exists to Momentarily Amaze and Lastingly Underwhelm – My Most Unapologetically Barbaric Review Yet?

Warning: The Following Contains Strong Language Tenet is the definition of a cute one-trick pony.  At this point, I expect Christopher Nolan’s next film to fuck with time to such an incomprehensible state that we have every character from his past films (Leonard, Cobb, Cooper, every real life soldier from Dunkirk, etc.) all colliding from […]

Andrei Tarkovsky’s The Sacrifice (1986) – A Personal Glimpse at Death

What David Bowie’s final LP Blackstar must’ve meant to him is likely what Tarkovsky’s final picture The Sacrifice must’ve meant to him too. Philosophy is tiring. Andrei Tarkovsky, the um… *ahem* philosophy connoisseur, seems exhausted of his own endless babbling, as he nears closer and closer to death. He’s gone full-on nihilistic, agonistic-mode on his […]

Quick-Thoughts: FKA twigs’ Music Video “M3LL155X”

After listening to the eargasmic LP MAGDALENE for the first time, I had to venture into FKA twigs’ earlier work, so I found out that she has an entire self-directed music video dedicated to her EP M3LL155X, so here we are!  As a major fan of groundbreaking, electronic-fuse solo artists such as the acclaimed Björk, […]

Quick-Thoughts: Mike Nichols’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1966)

Do I really have to get married, world? Quite contained location-wise, visually precise, unafraid to get a little gruesome, and overall a theater actor’s wet dream, Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? is a drunken spiel of emotional rage that pairs said talents to a cold-brew success. Brimmed to the edge with dialogue galore, the movie […]

Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises (2012) Remains to be a Polarizing Conclusion for the Caped Crusader’s Iconic Trilogy

Warning: Major Spoilers Ahead; ??? Viewing Umm… so, The Dark Knight Rises: the third entry in The Dark Knight trilogy; the final entry, moreover, in The Dark Knight trilogy; the end to end all ends. We’ve got extreme terrorism, a few tasteful villains, a decent 45-minutes of Batman ass-kicking (whether giving or receiving), and some […]

Quick-Thoughts: Twilight (2008)

Not gonna lie, if Robert Pattinson swooped me out of my bedroom in the middle of the night, I wouldn’t question it.  So, yes, I finally finished Twilight (in its entirety) after all these years and I’m just a little… speechless? This cult phenomenon surprisingly reminds me of if a bunch of college art students […]

Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight (2008) is Older Than a Decade Now Yet Still Feels Brand New

Warning: Spoilers Ahead; ??? Viewing You know you’ve seen a movie too many times when you can mummer nearly every line of dialogue simultaneously with the characters on screen. I have “kid me” to thank for this since the greatest Christmas present I ever received as a child was a DVD copy of The Dark […]

Christopher Nolan’s Batman Begins (2005) is Marginally Dated but Sufficient

??? Viewing Yeah, I saw that new Matt Reeves Batman trailer. Robert Pattinson as a Hot-Topic Batman? Paul Dano as a terrorist-driven Riddler? Uh-uh-uh… Zoë *faint* Kravitz. A murdered Alfred? Nirvana? I’m all for it. Anyways, it got me in the cinematic mood for some caped crusading… I like Batman Begins. As to my knowledge, […]

Quick-Thoughts: Christopher Nolan’s Following (1998)

Christopher Nolan’s debut Following is simple yet informative philosophy regarding our instinctive gravitation to decrease individuality as more and more people lay feet to the Earth’s soil, but more notably, one that exposes our occasionally narcissistic and vaguely unprofessional impulse to take others’ moral compasses into our own hands for ulterior motives. There are some […]

Quick-Thoughts: Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window (1954)

2nd Viewing Don’t mind me, just casually rewatching Rear Window. One gloriously Herculean set-piece… oooh, sided with the beautiful colors that are incorporated into the supernatural lighting techniques which spotlight day and night in the most unique manners; 1954? You must be joking me! John Michael Hayes and Cornell Woolrich’s dialogue is just bleeding with […]
