"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...

"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 →
