Peter Berg was on his way to become qualified as a good director. Ever since Lone Survivor, he’s made nothing but great films. Then Mile 22 came around; the not-so-surprising flop if you’d seen the trailer, but very surprising flop if you’d seen the director’s previous films. It was panned by critics and audiences alike, … Continue reading Opinion: “Mile 22” (2018)
Here's another animated review, this time it's for Netflix's Apostle. It's decent. The review is a bit longer than my previous one, but then again, this one has around double the number of frames. Here's the review: And that's it. And since I didn't get any feedback last time let me try again 🙂 What did … Continue reading Opinion: “Apostle” (2018)
So here's something new. After I saw The Thing and started writing my shorties for it, I suddenly thought to myself: "Wouldn't it be fun to animate this review?". So I did, and here's the result. It took quite some time to make since there's some storyboarding involved and quite a lot of frames (about 230). Every frame … Continue reading Opinion: “The Thing” (1982)
When Under the Silver Lake got mixed reviews at Cannes, I became slightly worried, though when YMS talked positively about it, I became cautiously optimistic. I really liked the director’s previous film, It Follows, the cast was filled with great actors, and the main premise seemed interesting; it had a lot of things going for it, … Continue reading Opinion: “Under The Silver Lake” (2018)

Mission Impossible II, is it really the worst?
As you might know by now, I’m a big fan of the Mission: Impossible franchise. It lays close to my heart for multiple reasons, so the sole idea of a new installment had me excited, but it supposedly being one of the best action films in years and the best film in the series, made … Continue reading Opinion: “Mission: Impossible Fallout” (2018)
I’m a big fan of animation, whether it’s stop-motion, 3D or 2D animation, I’m all for it… except for when they’re musicals. Usually, I’m not the biggest fan of the songs, I find that the build-up to these songs isn’t particularly great and it always feels kind of odd why they’d sing in the first … Continue reading Opinion: “Anastasia” (1997)
This article will have reviews of the following films in this order: The Incredibles 2, Newness, Sweet Virginia, Half Nelson, and Like Father. Unlike Deadpool 2¸ The Incredibles 2 doesn’t surpass its predecessor. It’s much more hollow and superficial than the first one, but it being worse was inevitable since the original Incredibles film was a straight A+. … Continue reading Shorties #16: “The Incredibles 2”, “Newness”, “Sweet Virginia”, “Half Nelson”, and “Like Father”
Wes Anderson and stop-motion can’t go wrong, right? Correct, it can’t and Isle of Dogs has proven that once again. As you might’ve known, this film appeared on my 5 Things I’m Looking Forward to in 2018 list that I published at the beginning of this year. My motivation for putting it on that list … Continue reading Opinion: “Isle of Dogs” (2018)
