A Brief Explanation of Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket (1987)

2nd Viewing Warning: Thematic Spoilers Ahead Stanley Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket: the death of individuality and the birth of sheer masculinity. It’s certainly no coincidence that most of us fight with dualism in our personality, but that in some fashion is what has created an artificial disorder in ourselves. Fighting between society’s standards of who […]

Phantom Thread (2017): Paul Thomas Anderson’s World of Colorful Fashion

PTA Marathon Part III of IV, 2nd Viewing  The main character, Mr. Woodcock is just me but when I talk about movies with others. Ha!  Elegant, ambitious, driving—literally, those car driving shots are f***ing exquisite—and a calming rendition of the “passion versus romance” catastrophe, Paul Thomas Anderson’s color-bleeding Phantom Thread is a design that was […]

The Comic-Book Movie That’s Gotten Better With Age: Zack Snyder’s Watchmen (2009)

Review of The Director’s Cut of Watchmen, 2nd Viewing  I don’t read a lot of comic books. The majority of ones that I have read were never vastly interesting to me. I have, however, read Watchmen, because the idea of a more politically complicated atmosphere in the superhero genre has always caught my attention significantly […]

The Five-Hour Motion Picture: Ingmar Bergman’s Fanny and Alexander (1982)

This is a review of the 5-hour television cut of Fanny and Alexander. Yep, I watched all 312 minutes of the film and it was totally worth it!  Just from the first act of Ingmar Bergman’s desired-to-be final feature, we are already conferred with a hysterically hefty juxtaposition between the inquisitive youth, the hectic middle-aged, […]

My Interpretations of the Underrated Masterpiece, Under the Skin (2013)

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD 2nd Viewing, Screened at The Frida Cinema  Best coming of age movie ever??? I’m still baffled to this day that Under the Skin is not considered a sci-fi masterpiece at the ranks of 2001: A Space Odyssey. You heard me correctly. I said it. Then again, it did take Kubrick’s marvelous feat […]

Sonic the Hedgehog is Abominable, Yet, Technically Not Nearly the Worst Movie You Could Watch With Friends or Family

It’s amusing how an almost strictly made for kids movie was so savagely pounced by a nostalgically spoiled group of internet-raving adults. Due to a poorly constructed “character design” back in the year 2019 that many reacted to as if it was a near end of the world scenario, Sega’s innocent project was pushed back […]

In the Future, Portrait of a Lady on Fire Will Be Considered One of the Greatest Romances of This Century By Many

I guess I never told you, readers, what happened to me the day I went to go see Portrait of a Lady on Fire back in October. It seems like this would be an appropriate time to tell you, anyhow. So, if you don’t know, I went to see The Lighthouse that same day in […]

Birds of Prey is a Harmless Comic-Book Movie That’s Currently Being Blown Out of Proportion

Warning: The following review is RATED R because some reckless movie reviewing asshole says an unnecessary amount of curse words to emphasize his point on this particular motion picture while also attempting to embody the raunchy stylistic directions of the film’s pizazz.  Awwwwwww. A completely harmless comic-book half-pie-flick with a ton of blood, guts, and […]
