"Glass"- Movie Review To describe M. Night Shyamalan's career would be to describe the wild ups and downs of a winding rollercoaster. It starts out at a good trajectory, going higher and higher until it reaches its peak. Then it does downhill, taking strange loops and bad, jagged turns along the way. In the end, you're left...

"Escape Room"- Movie Review A new year has arrived! With it comes a slew of New Year's resolutions. Some people vow and ultimately fail to get back to the gym. Others try to break bad habits. Some want to learn a new language or get married or go back to school. For me personally, I just want to... Continue Reading →

"The Favourite"- Movie Review In the past few years or so, Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos has slowly started to creep into the limelight. His recent projects- such as 2015's The Lobster and last year's psychological thriller The Killing of a Sacred Deer- have introduced modern American audiences to his peculiar style: a dry yet quirky sensibility that's elevated by Kubrick-esque camerawork and...

"Halloween"- Movie Review It's crazy to think how big an impact a simple movie about a masked serial killer who goes around stalking babysitters on Halloween night has made on an entire genre. But that's a feat that John Carpenter's 1978 slasher film pulled off. Elements of it have become ingrained in our popular culture-... Continue Reading →

When you really look at it, WAG has become... Continue Reading →

Maybe we saw a horror movie we thought we could handle, or perhaps there were certain... Continue Reading →

"A Separate Peace"- Book Review I know next to nothing about author John Knowles. If you were to quiz me, all I could say is that he was American, he was a novelist, and he's best known for the book I'm getting ready to talk about. That's it. I hadn't read many reviews for A... Continue Reading →

"Assassination Nation"- Movie Review You can tell a film's not going to pull any punches when it opens with a montage of trigger warnings. Sex. Violence. Misogyny. Racism. Fragile male egos. The words come at you in rapid succession like machine gunfire, each one glowing in beautiful neon colors. It's a clear indication of what's... Continue Reading →

"The Predator"- Movie Review Of all the creatures that make up the movie alien hall of fame, the Predator is by far my personal favorite (with H.R. Giger's Alien coming in at a close second). What's not to love about it? It's fast, it's strong, it's intelligent, it's a ruthless sport-hunter with an awesome and... Continue Reading →
