My 3rd Quick Review of John Carpenter’s Halloween (1978)

Screened at Cinépolis; 5th Viewing Watching seven Friday the 13th movies in a row and then watching Halloween is like being mercilessly beaten to death only to then be reincarnated into Brad Pitt. Watching seven Friday the 13th movies in a row and then watching Halloween is like burning all crop supplies available to the […]

Happy Halloween! Here’s My Review of Friday the 13th Parts II – VIII (1981 – 1989)

I am currently with a COVID-safe group on Halloween, dappered up as the mysterious, mirrored figure from Maya Deren’s Meshes of the Afternoon, embracing my cinephile nerdiness to the biggest T a T could ever T. We got Doc from Inherent Vice in the room, a 2017 Joji at large, and some dude in Marvel […]

Quick-Thoughts: Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007)

Screened at Cinépolis; ??? Viewing Noticeably more dilated than its underwhelming predecessor, the fifth year of cinema’s detour into Hogwarts smartly chooses to utilize a majority of its runtime to progress the soon-to-be war against good and evil, despite how flagrant it can get at times with its constant emotional efforts. Order of the Phoenix […]

Quick-Thoughts: Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988)

I saw for the first time and puzzlingly appreciated Clive Barker’s original cock-and-balls Hellraiser exactly one year ago from today, so it’s safe to say that I’m not someone who’ll shy away from a movie franchise that appears keen on having its terror to be rather found in the cucking and BDSM-ing department, while the […]

Quick-Thoughts: Borat (2006)

Confession: I have seen and rewatched about a million Borat clips during my time on Earth, HOWEVER, I have never actually seen the full movie until now. I know: you caught me; I’m a fake fan! As a whole, Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan is pretty f**king hilarious! […]

Quick-Thoughts: Travis Scott’s Music Video “90210”

Listened to Rodeo a couple weeks ago; thought it was pretty great, which is surprising considering my mismatched inklings on ASTROWORLD. 90210 may very well be the best song on that LP; it’s damn near ideal; Kacy Hill, the transitioning, tom-toms, classic piano, artificial guitar-amp bass, adequate autotune implications, the Kanye West and 70s jazz […]

Quick-Thoughts: Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005)

Screened at Cinépolis • ??? Viewing • Warning: Spoilers Ahead Welp, I take back my claim that there “isn’t even one dud in the OG eight-part Harry Potter series.” From a disoriented script with downgraded dialogue, unusually over-the-top acting direction for some unusually non-over-the-top characters that does not concur well especially after Prisoner of Azkaban, […]

Quick-Thoughts: Steve McQueen’s Red, White and Blue

The final episode in Steve McQueen’s Small Axe series serves as a straightforward biopic regarding real-life citizen Leroy Logan and his awakening journey into becoming a police officer, hoping to bring a domination of true justice to the oppression in London’s law enforcement system. His father who’s had a long, abusive relationship with the police […]

Quick-Thoughts: Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom (2012)

Screened at Angelika • 3rd Viewing  Around the year it was released, the first time I watched Moonrise Kingdom I had been exactly the same age as young Sam — I know, spoilers for how old I am. So it’s safe to say that when I first watched Moonrise Kingdom, there was a special connection […]

Quick-Thoughts: Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (2004)

Screened at Cinépolis • ??? Viewing  Sure, you can keep on mentioning the brilliance of Alfonso Cuarón’s directing in Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban with his novel POVs, scoping long-takes, or character mimicking camera gestures, but let’s not turn a blind eye to how congenial his capitalization on newly endeavored teenage angst is […]
