Movie Review: Hail Satan?

Movie Review: Hail Satan?

Diving headfirst into subjects I know nothing about is always a good way to figure out whether or not something I’m completely flummoxed by is a good idea. Satanism, for instance, isn’t exactly something I’m interested in, but certainly finds itself in the category of ‘things I’d deem somewhat strange.’ Strange enough to make a […]

Movie Review: Bait

Movie Review: Bait

Technical prowess has always impressed me. I look back and think of amazing camera efforts from directors like Martin Scorsese or films where the story building is blended into the direction and suave camera movements in something like Brazil. These aspects of filmmaking always impress me, so to dust off an old Bolex hand-crank camera to […]

Movie Review: To All The Boys: P.S. Still Love You

Movie Review: To All The Boys: P.S. Still Love You

I’ve not got it in me to hate anymore. I’m annoyed at best with To All the Boys P.S. I Still Love You. My back hurts too much to care for how boring and infantile and pedestrian it is. It’s the drying paint of the genre, and apparently people are content to sit and stare as […]

Movie Review: Charlie’s Angels

Movie Review: Charlie’s Angels

I didn’t really think we’d need another adaptation of the of the 1970s American action show Charlie’s Angels, but then again what do I know about trends? Apparently, there was a bloody high demand to reimagine the trio of Angels for the big screen, again. Not satisfied with the output of Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu […]

Movie Review: Underwater

Movie Review: Underwater

I hate to admit it, but I was somewhat excited for Underwater upon the initial announcement of its release. It’s amazing how quick your optimism can dissolve after reading the words “T.J. Miller”, but nonetheless I thought I’d persevere through William Eubank’s latest feature, which is set at the bottom of the deep blue sea. Starring the […]

Movie Review: Harriet

Movie Review: Harriet

After watching through Harriet, even I would struggle to tell people that this film received nominations on the awards circuit. Yes, while not every film on the gravy train of awards success is exactly a hit, it’s surprising to see which misses were included for no other reason than a mighty push by the studio in […]

Movie Review: Horse Girl

Movie Review: Horse Girl

A film that is weird solely for the sake of it is no film at all really, is it? I like the work of David Lynch somewhat because his innate ability to craft weird scenarios is bolstered by strong performances and engaging subtexts that are littered throughout his narratively flimsy pieces of work. Weird films […]

Movie Review: Midway

Movie Review: Midway

Roland Emmerich is a director, that much is true. He’s not one of competent measure, with the likes of disaster film The Day After Tomorrow and action junk such as White House Down littering an unimpressive career that has lasted, somehow, for more than two decades. His latest feature takes him right to the heart […]

Movie Review: Honey Boy

Movie Review: Honey Boy

Having written portions of this during a stint in rehab, Shia LaBeouf’s Honey Boy will elicit as much realism as the “based on true events” placard that preceded the Paranormal Activity films. Much of the film comes down to recollection of a childhood from long ago, and from there you can disconnect with Honey Boy […]

Movie Review: Where’d You Go, Bernadette?

Movie Review: Where’d You Go, Bernadette?

Remember Richard Linklater? You know, the director of the Before Trilogy, quite possibly one of the greatest trilogies of film ever created. He also directed School of Rock, for those that are stuck reliving their childhood through classic, overrated nostalgia trips. Linklater is a great director; his projects often focus on different themes that would affect the general plausibility […]
