The Devil All the Time Relies Desperately on its Influences and Marvelous Performers — Maybe, Too Much?

Somebody initiate a “Robert Pattinson’s Seamless Accents Club” already! Netflix’s latest drop The Devil All the Time is a “karma bites!” type of tale, one that takes us on a journey into the questionable aftermaths of our actions that seem all too righteously intentional to be coincidences. Over and above that though, Antonio Campos’ film […]

Quick-Thoughts: Jonathan Glazer’s Strasbourg 1518

Jonathan Glazer’s newest short film Strasbourg 1518 is an anxiety protruding ten minutes, I must say. The actual event itself, though, now that… that was exceedingly interesting to research. Cannot stress how much I adore candid yet schizophrenic dancing choreography, so I may lean with a soft spot for this short film despite it being […]

The Live-Action Mulan Remake is a Disgrace (Not to Our Surprise)

Eh. This remake is like if Zack Snyder directed a Mulan remake but actually liked color. I must’ve watched the 1998 Mulan at least a hundred times as a kid. If you don’t know, I’m half Chinese, half Caucasian. In spite of my ethnic background, this is just coming from my experience personally, I don’t […]

Charlie Kaufman’s I’m Thinking of Ending Things is the Epitome of a Perfect “Adaptation”

Yes, I ate at a Dairy Queen for the first time in years right before watching this in celebration of the novel which features DQ as one of the main locations. AND WOULDN’T YOU KNOW IT? LOW AND BEHOLD, THE MOVIE DIDN’T KEEP THIS DEMANDING DETAIL OF THE BOOK IN IT’S TRANSFORMATION; THE MOST CRUCIAL […]

Quick-Thoughts: New Mutants

A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors anyone?  Pushed forward with its release date countless times spanning a near three years, changed from an MPAA rating of R to PG-13, and reassessed to a merciless pulp, it’s safe to say many fans of Fox’s progressively dying X-Men franchise were beginning to wonder if this […]

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 […]

Quick-Thoughts: The Rental (2020)

Okay thank the movie release gods, I can finally say something about this film legally after seeing it half a year ago.    Yeah, I guess I could write a lengthy review for this, but there’s not a whole lot to discuss when it comes to The Rental besides the fact that James Franco’s baby brother […]

Hamilton Reaches its Talent into the Hands of Disney+ Users

Hamilton sets out and succeeds in exactly what it wants to do—recap the fascinating story of an American Founding Father, Alexander Hamilton, in a fashion so deliberately unforeseen that it’ll come off as a decade-defining landmark for live Broadway musicals. It’s the event that’ll have political grumps like Mr. “rap isn’t real music” Shapiro infuriated […]

Quick-Thoughts: Disney’s Artemis Fowl

So this is what Marty was talking about when he mentioned “cinema.”  I don’t think I’ve ever witnessed this much spoken exposition, listened to this many fake accents, and experienced this heavy of a reliance on abrupt cuts in my entire life. 125 million dollars, fellas. That’s comforting.  Yo, I don’t even have the energy […]

Spike Lee’s Newest Joint Da 5 Bloods Has Powerful Commentary But a Lightweight Plot

Spike Lee, creator of such joints as the down-to-the-bones biopic Malcolm X, the emotively poignant but endlessly crowd-pleasing BlacKkKlansman, and one of my personal all-time cinematic favorites, Do the Right Thing, has caught us off-guard with a somewhat surprise Netflix release of his newest feature-length Da 5 Bloods.  This Vietnam war drama and treasure-hunt adventure […]
