"Pokemon: Detective Pikachu"- Movie Review Pokemon holds a very special place in the hearts of most 90s kids. Between the tv show, the video games and the card collectibles, the franchise dominated a lot of people's childhoods. Hearing the theme song is enough to reduce anyone to a nostalgia-induced puddle of emotions. I personally was... Continue Reading →

"Avengers: Endgame"- Movie Review I don't know what's crazier- the sheer scope of how far the Marvel Cinematic Universe has come in the past decade, or the fact that a simple 2008 action movie kick started the golden age of the superhero genre and pioneered the most successful franchises in film history. Either way, it's... Continue Reading →

"Us"- Movie Review If I had told you years ago that Jordan Peele- a seasoned veteran of a sketch comedy show and one half of a widely popular comedy duo- would eventually become a critically and commercially lauded auteur of horror cinema, would you have believed me?

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...

"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 →

"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.
