The Most Anticipated Movies of 2020

So, recently I did some research on what movies were coming out in 2020 and was contentedly surprised to find out just how much this year has to offer. Considering that 2019 set the bar for 21st Century years for movies, I had totally forgotten that there are a lot of attracting movies coming outContinue reading “The Most Anticipated Movies of 2020”

The Top 15 Best Movies of 2019

Can I be frank with you fellas for a second? 2019 has been a GOLD MINE year for cinema. It’s as if the movie gods themselves had wanted to drop every consecutive masterpiece during this very special time in 21st-century history. So, with that in mind, this list was extraordinarily hard to make; it hurtContinue reading “The Top 15 Best Movies of 2019”

My Top 10 Least Favorite Movies of 2019

It’s that depressing time of the year again, ladies and gentlemen, where I go over my top 10 least favorite movies of 2019. Disclaimer: I haven’t seen every dreadful act of wickedness this year so if a crappy movie that you absolutely despised didn’t show up on this list, don’t get upset; it’s probably notContinue reading “My Top 10 Least Favorite Movies of 2019”

Quick-Thoughts: Greta Gerwig’s Little Women

Now related sisters Lady Bird, The May Queen, Hermione, and Sharp Objects team-up to star in the (insert very large number)th adaptation of the longly beloved female-lead tale Little Women. Greta Gerwig’s jab at the classic tale is a(n) (almost too) fast-paced retelling of a family of strong-willed women who must pave the way forContinue reading “Quick-Thoughts: Greta Gerwig’s Little Women”

A List of Some “Simplified” Spoilers for The Rise of Skywalker

SPOILER ALERT FOR STAR WARS EPISODE IX: THE RISE OF SKYWALKER I’ve seen the movie twice now. I have many spoilers to discuss.  C-3P0’s inclusion is the best part of The Rise of Skywalker. “Search your feelings. You know it to be true.” It’s nice to see that the iconic droid has finally received aContinue reading “A List of Some “Simplified” Spoilers for The Rise of Skywalker”

Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker is a Franchise-Killing Disaster

This review is spoiler-free. Don’t worry, you’re safe!  “Story Overload” is a dangerous disease. TV Shows can suffer from it. Books can suffer from it. Movies can suffer it. But more commonly, unplanned trilogies can suffer from it. “Story Overload” is the contagious concept of a movie having to many plot points, schemes, and objectivesContinue reading “Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker is a Franchise-Killing Disaster”

Sam Mendes’s 1917: A Cinematic Technical Achievement and a Solid Movie Too!

Best. Video Game. Let’s Play Video. EVER. As you may have heard, Sam Mendes’s 1917 is a technical masterpiece; I am here to confirm that this is very much, true. It’s a panoramic, intense war drama that is meant to look like a two-hour two-take—yes, it’s insane! However, I am also here to confirm toContinue reading “Sam Mendes’s 1917: A Cinematic Technical Achievement and a Solid Movie Too!”

Quick-Thoughts: Richard Jewell

Ughhh. My heart.  Clint Eastwood’s latest based-on-true-story composition is an ample simplification of how the power-hungry thirst of the American government and multiplying media can tear down the public’s perception of true heroes and unwarrantedly cause assumptions of a more sinister motive behind suspects. This 2019 knockout is yet another slightly surface-level but enthralling storyContinue reading “Quick-Thoughts: Richard Jewell”

Quick-Thoughts: Uncut Gems

Uncut Gems has all the possible traits a Safdie Brothers fan could ever hanker after. Anxiety told through hand-held execution and blabbering New-York-ian accents. Lots and lots of aggressive fighting and punching. A sturdy score with electronic synths blasting to a mesmerizing effect. But, underneath the silk-stocking display of cinematic genius that the brothers haveContinue reading “Quick-Thoughts: Uncut Gems”

Quick-Thoughts: The Souvenir (2019)

The Souvenir might be referred to as the anti-romantic-drama, where every common highlight in two lovers’ drawn-out connection is completely glossed over, ultimately depicting the less “talked about” events of a realistic relationship—as depressing as that sounds. Joanna Hogg’s polarizing feature film, however, shouldn’t primarily be applauded because it’s different, but it should be honoredContinue reading “Quick-Thoughts: The Souvenir (2019)”
