"Soul"- Movie Review It's funny how Disney has gone from being a successful family entertainment company to a studio-guzzling media empire. It seems like every few months we hear a new story about plans to buy-up studios and expand its conglomerate. Even I, a Disney brat since the mere age of seven, can agree that... Continue Reading →

"Wonder Woman 1984"- Movie Review With HBOMax having finally launched and Warner Bros. having decided to release their slate of films simultaneously in theaters and on streaming, it means we are finally- FINALLY!- able to see movies that have been stuck in pandemic purgatory all of last year. I personally won't go into whether the... Continue Reading →

"Sound of Metal"- Movie Review I often find that trying to find a movie to watch on a streaming service is like having a fridge full of food and not knowing what you're in the mood to eat. You know you'll eventually have to settle with somthing, and more likely than not, that something will... Continue Reading →

"Hillbilly Elegy" & "Happiest Season"- Dual Review Thanksgiving 2020 has come and gone and we find ourselves in the midst of the holiday inbetween, a time of manic department store purging, an endless stream of cheesy Hallmark Christmas movies, fattening yourself with cookies galore, and the seasonal onslaught of Oscar-bait pictures. The films we'll be... Continue Reading →

"The Witches"- Movie Review Ah, it feels good to be back! Sorry for the weeks-long disappearance. Between a few personal projects I've been working on, to the lack of significant releases and the stress of the 2020 presidential election, my focus has been on everything but the movies. But now that my to-do list and... Continue Reading →

"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. Of all the projects... Continue Reading →

"Bill & Ted Face the Music"- Movie Review Believe it or not, it takes brains to make stupid funny. Brains and a good amount of talent. It's easy to write dumb characters and dumb stories. But if you really want them to work, to be good, you have to be clever about how you showcase... Continue Reading →

"The Assistant"- Movie Review Ever since I started working as a staff assistant, I've found myself drawn to movies set in offices. I remember seeing the movie Office Space for the first time two or so years ago and thinking, “How, this speaks to me.” Even if the plots themselves were about something I'd never...
