Adam Wingard, the man behind The Guest, but also behind the 2017 classic Death Note, became quite popular in 2011 when he released You’re Next, which is a horror home-invasion movie that’d supposedly subvert everything you’d come to expect from a home-invasion film. Critics gave it raving reviews, though audiences weren’t really the biggest fan … Continue reading Opinion: “You’re Next” (2011)
This article will have short reviews of the following films: The Wolfpack, Blockers, Una, Set it Up, and Compliance. While incredibly interesting, The Wolfpack didn't have a whole lot to say. I didn't get the sense of coherency or any structure whatsoever. It felt more like the director had a bunch of scenes in front of her and jumbled them together … Continue reading Shorties #14: “The Wolfpack”, “Blockers”, “Una”, “Set it Up”, and “Compliance”
SPOILERS FOR SEASON ONE OF THE GOOD PLACE We all know that empty feeling we have after having finished a show. It’s as if the show has left a hole inside of you. We then quickly move on to another show to re-fill that empty spot as soon as possible. Though you know that you’ll … Continue reading “The Good Place” is quite brilliant and I can’t really figure out why.
This article will have short reviews for the following films in this order: United 93, Wind River, The Cabin in the Woods, Brigsby Bear and Miss Stevens.
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
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
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)
This article will have short reviews of the following films in this order: Deadpool 2, Anon, Lady Bird, Bullhead, and Black Panther. With more fleshed out characters that have a well-executed arc and with better-developed humor, Deadpool 2 makes for one of the better sequels to have come out in recent years. It felt like a … Continue reading Shorties #11: “Deadpool 2”, “Anon”, “Lady Bird”, “Bullhead”, and “Black Panther”
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)
This article will contain short reviews of the following films in this order: Kodachrome, Star Trek Beyond, Pan's Labyrinth, While We're Young and Hunt for the Wildereople. Kodachrome is an excellent example of how execution can change a more than mediocre story into a very decent film. The film’s quite predictable, to say the least, though … Continue reading Shorties #10: “Kodachrome”, “Star Trek Beyond”, “Pan’s Labyrinth”, “While We’re Young” and “Hunt for the Wildereople”
