Movie trailers have changed drastically throughout the years, even now they’re still evolving, but where did they really start?

Opinion: “Assassin’s Creed” (2016)

Assassin’s Creed was a film that I hoped would be good. It had Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, Jeremy Irons…: an all-around amazing cast. Not only that but also the director sparked some hope. The year prior to Assassin’s Creed Justin Kurzel made the cinematic artwork called Macbeth, also starring Fassbender and Cotillard. And since the … Continue reading Opinion: “Assassin’s Creed” (2016)

Ranked: Christopher Nolan’s Films

People often place Insomnia at the utter end of their Christopher Nolan films, but is that really where the film belongs? Christopher Nolan has produced ten films in the last two decades of which none have been bad or mediocre.

Opinion: “Dunkirk” (2017)

The story of Dunkirk is told from three different perspectives: land, air, and sea.  Each perspective has to tell the same story, which is all about trying to help the stranded soldiers on the beach of Dunkirk escape. The story is pretty basic, but the way it’s told isn’t, which I really liked. Dunkirk is … Continue reading Opinion: “Dunkirk” (2017)

The Brilliance of “It Comes at Night”

SPOILERS FOR “IT COMES AT NIGHT” “A wrongly marketed gem” It’s a sentence that perfectly describes the new creation of Trey Edward Shults, which is a film that the trailers made to look like it belonged in the horror genre, while it actually is a slow paced psychological thriller, which doesn’t tablespoon all the information. … Continue reading The Brilliance of “It Comes at Night”

Opinion: “The LEGO Batman Movie”

The Lego Batman Movie is the colorful film about the titular character, who’s struggling with emotional problems, while The Joker desperately wants him to hate him. Right off the bat (badum tss), I'll say that this is a visually stunning film. Each shot was incredibly well-lit and framed, with a heavy, but beautiful amount of color creating frame … Continue reading Opinion: “The LEGO Batman Movie”

The Badness of “Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse”

When I pressed the play button I wasn't exactly filled with high expectations, yet this film managed to surprise me, just not in the right way. Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse is about three scouts who get stuck into a zombie apocalypse, sounds like a fun idea for a movie, does it? Well if … Continue reading The Badness of “Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse”

Opinion: The Dark Tower Trailer #1

SPOILERS FOR THE BOOK SERIES I am late to the party… again. But this time I have an excuse: I was reading. When The Dark Tower trailer dropped a few weeks ago, I was still reading the book series the movie will be based upon, written by Stephen King.
