Why I Love Film

Telling stories is a passion of mine and I adore listening to people who’ve got their own story to tell. Two films telling the same story is like asking two different people to tell the same story. Both will give their version of the story, their interpretation and they might add something or leave bits … Continue reading Why I Love Film

Shorties #12: Short Film Edition

To mix things up, I thought I'd for once review a handful of short films. They won't all be in English, keep that in mind. Here are the shorts that I'll take a look at: The Fall, Text Me, Hello, Again, Ape and Die Telefonistin. The acting in The Fall wasn’t anything spectacular, especially the … Continue reading Shorties #12: Short Film Edition

Opinion: “A Quiet Place” (2018)

2018 has been far from stellar; Paradox was terrible, Mute was boring and Black Panther failed to amaze me, just to give you a few examples. I’ve only seen a handful of really good movies this year like Game Night and Annihilation, but now I’m happy to say that I can add another one to … Continue reading Opinion: “A Quiet Place” (2018)

Opinion: “Night of the Living Dead” (1968)

Recently I’ve been really into watching horror classics. Last week I watched The Exorcist, a film that I liked, though it really took its time setting itself up, then I watched Jaws, who doesn’t love that one? And when I saw that the Blu-ray of George A. Romero’s debut film Night of the Living Dead … Continue reading Opinion: “Night of the Living Dead” (1968)

Opinion: “Wonder Woman” (2017)

At its release, Wonder Woman got a lot of praise for numerous things. It was deemed to be the best superhero movie ever by some and others even thought that it had a chance at being nominated for an Oscar. Let’s just say that my expectations were quite high going into this film. Due to … Continue reading Opinion: “Wonder Woman” (2017)

This article will have shorts reviews for the following films in this order: The Dark Tower, 20th Century Women, Baywatch, Free Fire, and Dude. The Dark Tower was even worse than I predicted last year. The dialogue was truly atrocious and the directing was as bland as it possibly could’ve been. I don’t mind if … Continue reading Shorties #9: “The Dark Tower”, “20th Century Women”, “Baywatch”, “Free Fire” and “Dude”

My Interpretation of “Phantom Thread” and its Colors

After having waited for months for Phantom Thread to come out, I was more than disappointed to find out that they only played it across the country. Then, a couple of weeks ago, a small independent theater not so far from where I live played it for one week only. After hearing this news, my excitement rose and I went to see the film as fast as I could. The visuals of the film really spoke to me, not only did they look gorgeous, but the usage of warm and cold light and colors stood out, which is what I will be discussing in this article.
