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.

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.

Romero’s debut film Night of the Living Dead … Continue reading Opinion: “Night of the Living Dead” (1968)

Opinion: “Last Flag Flying” (2017)

Richard Linklater is one of the best working directors today. He’s able to make some incredible films and hasn’t made a bad one in recent memory.

Two years later, he released his second film, Source Code, which also was a really well-made film. Another … Continue reading Opinion: “Mute” (2018)
