    You know when you get to a four-way intersection and you stop and wait for another car to make their turn only to realize that they're waiting for you and then as soon as you attempt to go they decide to slowly move out into the intersection which forces you to stop and begin the entire cycle over again? This movie is that situation in cinematic form.

    ★★½

    [5]

    Neither outstanding nor horrid. It seems rather puzzling, though, that so much of the project rests on Emma Stone's shoulders. She is a fine actress, particularly adept with comedy, but as Mia she is a mediocre singer and a subpar dancer. (Note how she keeps looking down at her feet, and how she slouches rather than keeping her line.) One could almost understand this if Chazelle's purpose were a sort of pro-am Everyman musical along the lines of Everyone…

    Would like to see a sequel where they have to calculate all the math for the mission in ARMAGEDDON.

    Hey, am I being too sensitive or is this film just littered with movie references throughout? "Take the carbon, leave the bible." sounds like it's a parody of "Take the gun. Leave the cannoli." The beach dancing scene feels like a reference to Pulp Fiction. The shot of water bursting out of a dam reminded me of The Shining. And let's not forget Sam's escape from Camp Ivanhoe that seems to be a direct copy from The Shawshank Redemption. Is…

    "Fences" is very much like watching a filmed stage show. From the incredibly dialogue heavy script to the focus purely on how the actors work off each other, limited locations and characters, and even certain story beats.

    That's not much of a complaint from me, since I love stage shows. Before I was an usher at a local movie theater, I was one at a local stage house in New England. I haven't seen a stage show in years (mostly…

    Every once in a while, a movie comes along that injects a new life into a dying genre and changes everything. Whenever the film industry ran out of ideas or continued churning the same formulaic stuff for far too long, there always emerged a fresh breed of filmmakers who took it upon themselves to bring the necessary change and, in the process, heralded a new era of motion pictures.

    2016 will no doubt go down as the year in which…

    This one is going to have to marinate in my brain for a few days before I even attempt to write down some cohesive thoughts. But I'll leave you with this: Holy Fucking Shit! Marty hasn't lost it one bit.

    Also, that final shot...WOW! One of the best final shots I've seen in a film to date.

    ★★★★★

    I think people overlook how hard it is to be a kid. All kids at one point feel unwanted, unloved, or uncared for. It's universal, which is why this movie is so incredible. It takes something as simple as a broken household and makes it for everyone, something anyone can relate to. 

    The acting and score in particular are outstanding. The cinematography is gorgeous, and you can tell it has inspired many filmmakers today. Many aspects of this film also…

    My bloody generation.

    I don't mean to be one of those "born in the wrong decade" people but LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING ABOUT MY GENERATION.

    This is a generation fueled by blood. No one stops to think about what really frightens them anymore. When people watch a horror movie now, they have to literally be told at what point in the movie they should be scared. That's why, when things like It Follows and The Witch come along, they…

    Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver further prove they are two of the most convincing and diverse actors today. Unlike Hacksaw Ridge, in my opinion, the faith in this film was handled beautifully and very respectfully. I absolutely adored Silence.

    ★★★★

    Believe it or not, Split was one of my most anticipated movie of 2017. M. Night Shyamalan is one of my favorite working directors. Whether it's one of his masterpieces or one of his disasters, I find his films fascinating. Another reason why I was excited for this movie was to see if M. Night continues on the comeback path. He made some pure garbage after The Village and The Visit was a pleasant surprise; definitely the start of a…
