Last year was a good year for film. Not only did we get a satisfying closing chapter to a more than decade long saga with Avengers Endgame but we got some excellent standalone films as well. While I haven’t agreed with some people’s favorites (don’t expect Joker or The Irishman on here) this year has brought me great cinematic joy. As someone that dreams of making his own movies, 2019 has been one of the...

I’m not going to lie; I’m scared to talk about this movie. I’ve been back and forth on whether or not I’m a Star Wars fan. I remember watching the movies over and over again in my mother’s best friend’s basement when I was a child. I also remember seeing many of the prequel films in theaters when I was a smaller. Of course, they haven’t aged well for me. I do stand by the visual excitement...

I don’t like to drive- Wait, let me rephrase that. I don’t like driving my car. It needs the coolant changed, a new alternator, and it makes funny sounds every now and then (really, these sounds get me laughing every time). Nevertheless, on the Sunday of December fifteenth I got into my 1999 Beetle and drove to LA, hoping that it wouldn’t explode. Why? Because Adam Sandler and the Safdie Brothers were doing a Q&A...

Just a quick note. I’m not going to talk about Rain Johnson’s ​Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie beyond this point. Just know that rather or not you liked his film in that universe doesn’t matter. While fans of ​Star Wars​ can like ​Knives Out​, it still isn’t made with that audience in mind. My point is if you are not a fan of ​Star Wars: The Last Jedi ​you shouldn’t let it affect your...

Quick thing about Martin Scorsese before this review. Look, we all know that he said Marvel movies aren’t cinema. I just want to address this now so that I don’t have to talk about again in this review. Scorsese can think whatever he wants, it doesn’t change viewer perception. Despite all of Scorsese’s experience he isn’t the leading voice in cinema.  He doesn’t get the final say, the audience does. Also about his argument of...

I’m tired of the Joker character. This might be blasphemy, but keep in mind that I’ve been taking in both the comic books and movies for the past couple years. Every time any new creative name gets behind a Batman related project they usually run at the chance to do their own version of the Joker. This doesn’t mean I hate it when I see a new version of the Joker, I’ve just lost all...

I’ve never been to a haunted house, but I’ve always wanted to go. Instead of leaving the house I decided to find a movie to scratch that itch. I can avoid people if I keep trying hard enough. Haunt is a film written and directed by Scott Beck and Bryan Woods that came out just a couple weeks ago. If those names sound familiar that means that you stayed for thirty seconds into the end...
