"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.

"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 →

"The Nun"- Movie Review In a world dominated by franchises, The Conjuring Universe has proven to be one of the more successful ones out there. Sure, not every film has hit bulls-eye, but so far the good has largely outweighed the bad. And it's no surprise the series has started putting time and energy into spin-offs... Continue Reading →
