"Hubie Halloween"- Movie Review We were warned. The sign was there, hanging in neon lights and pulsing right in front of our faces. Long ago, in the yester year of 2019, Adam Sandler had warned us all that if he didn't get nominated for his stellar performance in Uncut Gems, he'd burden us with another... Continue Reading →

"I'm Thinking Of Ending Things"- Movie Review Charlie Kaufman is just my kind of weird. Funny enough, I didn't realize I was a fan of his until I looked back at his filmography and saw that he wrote a handful of films that I like- Being John Malkovich (1999), Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind...

"Mulan"- Movie Review Since the mid-2010s Disney has been hammering at their list of potential live-action remakes. Lately, it seems like their main trajectory is the Renaissance era, as evidenced by Beauty and the Beast (2017), Aladdin (2019), The Lion King (2019) and upcoming adaptations of The Little Mermaid and Hercules.

It is beautiful, no doubt, standing a proud three stories high and stretching across two long acres of crisp, sun-roasted land.

"Hamilton"- Movie Review Finally, after years of watching the Hamilton hype train stroll on by, I can now say that I've stepped foot onto the bandwagon, albeit under special circumstances. The filmed version of the Broadway musical was slated for a theatrical release, but, similarly with Artemis Fowl, it was pushed to Disney+. It's a... Continue Reading →

"Artemis Fowl"- Movie Review Anyone who grew up in the early 2000s knows the name Artemis Fowl. The fantasy book series, written by Irish author Eoin Colfer, was pretty popular among the elementary school crowd. And why wouldn't it be? It was practically the James Bond of children's fantasy stories, with elves, fairies, high-tech gadgets... Continue Reading →

"Da 5 Bloods"- Movie Review It makes sense that in the midst of our current wave of racial justice activism and social unrest, Spike Lee puts out his next timely motion picture.
