Shorties: “Snowpiercer”, “The Killing of a Sacred Deer”, “Black Swan”, “The Squid and the Whale” and “Blade Runner 2049”

As I don't really have the time to write a full-on review for each movie that I see, I came up with the idea to write short reviews, only consisting out of a couple of lines or just one sentence, for a handful of movies that I've recently seen. It's basically the last paragraph you'd find … Continue reading Shorties: “Snowpiercer”, “The Killing of a Sacred Deer”, “Black Swan”, “The Squid and the Whale” and “Blade Runner 2049”

“Le Fidèle (The Racer and the Jailbird)” Movie Review + Short Cast Interview

Past weekend, Le Fidèle, whose English title's The Racer and the Jailbird, had its avant première in Brussels, which I was able to attend. Before the movie started, the director and main cast introduced themselves and answered some questions. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to ask those questions ourselves. At seven thirty the cast and crew of Le … Continue reading “Le Fidèle (The Racer and the Jailbird)” Movie Review + Short Cast Interview

Opinion: “Before I Fall” (2017)

Ever since Barry Jenkins, the director of 2016’s Moonlight, announced on Twitter that this film was worth checking out, I was more than excited to see it. So I was naturally disappointed when the film didn’t get a release date in my country. We only tend to get big budget blockbusters in theaters and sometimes … Continue reading Opinion: “Before I Fall” (2017)

Why Silence is important to Film

SPOILERS FOR "SILENCE" (2016) "Speech is silver, silence is golden." Silence. A moment of loneliness or peace. A moment of calm or stress. Silence fills a void, silence is the void. Silence can have the same impact as music, but only more powerful than a three-minute song.  Silence in a song is also very powerful. Imagine … Continue reading Why Silence is important to Film

The Brilliance of”The Room”

The Brilliance of The Room. Yeah. You read that right. The Room, not to be confused with 2015's  Room starring Brie Larson, has become a cult classic throughout the nearly two decennia it's been around, but it didn't receive that status for the reasons you'd want your film to be a cult classic. In 2003 Tommy Wiseau wanted … Continue reading The Brilliance of”The Room”

Opinion: “The Big Sick” (2017)

“So, uh, 9/11…” Terry says “No I mean, I've always wanted to have a conversation with…” he continues while gesturing at Kumail "...about it. With…People” “You've never talked to people about 9/11?” Kumail asks “No what's your, what's your stance?” “What's my stance on 9/11? Oh um, anti. It was a tragedy, I mean we … Continue reading Opinion: “The Big Sick” (2017)

Ranked: Edgar Wright’s films

How can you rank movies, when you love every single one equally as much? It's like picking your favorite child, well not that I'd know since I don't have any children and am not planning on having any in the near future, but it's what I'd imagine it would be like. So here's my attempt … Continue reading Ranked: Edgar Wright’s films

The Brilliance of “Baby Driver”

Baby Driver was one of my most anticipated films of 2017 since I am a very big fan Edgar Wright's previous work. He is a fantastic comedic director but from the trailers, for Baby Driver, I was already able to tell that this would be a more serious story, with also a more serious approach and … Continue reading The Brilliance of “Baby Driver”

An Ode to Edgar Wright

Man, oh man, do I love this man. He might not be my favorite director, but he’s a close second and he’s without a doubt the best comedy director working today. His distinct style in directing and writing is what makes him stand out from the crowd of generic, uncreative “comedy” directors that rule the … Continue reading An Ode to Edgar Wright
