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

Opinion: “The Visit” (2015)

“M. Night Shyamalan’s return as a good director” Those were words people spoke after the release of M. Night Shyamalan’s The Visit, oddly enough. People were praising it all around and a reviewer that I follow, Chris Stuckmann, with whom I agree quite a lot, gave it a B. So I  was generally pretty excited when … Continue reading Opinion: “The Visit” (2015)

Compare: Movie Trailers Back Then and Now

Movie trailers have changed drastically throughout the years, even now they’re still evolving, but where did they really start? BACK THEN As written in my article about George Méliès, he was the first one to introduce a teasing method of the film that was being played in the movie theater. He projected pictures of the … Continue reading Compare: Movie Trailers Back Then and Now

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. All have been great in their own ways, so the film that’ll be ranked last, … Continue reading Ranked: Christopher Nolan’s Films

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)
