"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 →

"Smallfoot"- Movie Review In early 2013, Warner Bros. launched their feature animation studio, Warner Animation Group. The division started out strong in 2014 with The Lego Movie, and they've built a solid track record for themselves ever since with films like the Lego sequels and the 2016 comedy, Storks. When you really look at it, WAG has become... 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 →

"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 →

"The Meg"- Movie Review Imagine this: You're seven years old. You've been taking swimming lessons for a while now. You're learning the breaststroke, the backstroke, the butterfly, and everything's going great. What you know about the ocean comes from what you've seen in The Little Mermaid and The Land Before Time V: The Mysterious Island (big big water!).... Continue Reading →

"BlacKkKlansman" Movie Review To be honest, I’m not too familiar with Spike Lee’s work. The list of ones I’ve seen barely takes up space on a sticky note. Malcolm X- which funny enough stars BlacKkKlansman lead John David Washington’s father, Denzel Washington- is overly long but nonetheless a stunning autobiography of one of America’s most...

"Christopher Robin"- Movie Review It's virtually impossible to hate Winnie the Pooh. If you do, odds are you don't have a soul. Granted, the stories of Winnie the Pooh and his adventures in the Hundred-Acre Wood aren't for everyone, though there's no denying the lasting impression they make on people's lives, mine included. I adore... Continue Reading →

"Mission: Impossible- Fallout"- Movie Review Of all the spy movie franchises out there, Mission: Impossible is probably my favorite. The fourth installment, Ghost Protocol, was my introduction to the series and I absolutely loved it, though I never saw the others until recently when I binged them in preparation for MI: 6. My thoughts on each? The first is... Continue Reading →
