    I want to love this film but there are some aspects that hold me back. The biting satire and superficiality on display in this world of old money and devious predators does grab your attention and keep you interested for what is going to happen next. On the same coin, what is the big takeaway we as the viewers are supposed to understand? Is it that rich people live in a vapid bubble…well that’s obvious. Is it that many of…

    Mean Girls


    Timeless comedy that has only gotten better over the years. The joke don’t feel forced, natural punchlines and satirical intelligence that pokes fun at the most shallow aspects of our society. Really paints how weird and foolish high school culture turned out to be when you look back in hindsight. The empty lives of people who make fun of others to gain self satisfaction; cliques and groups that thrive on being placed in boxes. A hefty amount of commentary buried underneath insightful subtext. By the way, that “rebootcoming out in the garbage dump of January really exposes how unoriginal Hollywood has become.

    Invasion of the Body Snatchers


    It had me in the palms of its hands and…..then the ending happened. Feels so abrupt and no sense of conclusion to the narrative; a cliffhanger that will never be resolved. I enjoyed the remake much more.

  • The Killer

    The Killer


    No one can do darkness like David Fincher. The meticulously crafted atmosphere filled with nihilistic bravado that paints the world for what it really is; a dark place where only the few will get the spoils while the many have to scrape tooth and nail to keep their place. It feels non hyperbolic to say that Fincher and screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker really hate society, the same sentiment carried from their original genesis of their collaborative partnership Se7en. Non empathy treated…

  • Five Nights at Freddy's

    Five Nights at Freddy's


    I’m not sure what this film wanted to be at the end of the day. The makings of a decent family drama that has the addition of cashing in on a popular trend that doesn’t mesh well. Scenes that will make you feel deep sorrow then switches into a goofy children’s film by the next frame is a bizzare tonal shift. Paying more attention to the traumatic background is a missed opportunity. Leaning into the horror would have been its…

  • Se7en



    One of the bleakest conclusions ever for a film. The cynical and horrific nature of humanity triumphing over the naivety of believing that the world can be fixed. The people will call crazy have become hard to differentiate between what we see everyday in front of our eyes. Trying to do good in taking down the evil among us only brings to light how futile the effort can be. The world is changing and it’s not for the better as we like to believe. The year is 1995 for the release date but this storytelling and direction will span for centuries in its remarkable brilliance.

    Pain Hustlers


    To save you all time that is precious, go watch The Wolf Of Wall Street instead. You get the double treat of watching a Martin Scorsese feature and get to see the master of what Leo can do in a role like this that Chris Evans isn’t able to replicate anywhere. Blunt and Evans don’t deserve the bulk of criticism, it’s the writing that brings down the whole ship. The lazy intercuts of narrations litters throughout they don’t add anything…

  • Killers of the Flower Moon

    Killers of the Flower Moon


    The intrinsic value of a human being is hard to measure. We are all prone to having our good days and bad days but the one thing that can't be questioned within us all is our ability to empathize and want to be the best version we can be not for ourselves but for others around us. Being the change you want to see in the world and helping one another out of the kindness of your heart rather than…

  • The Conference

    The Conference


    Pretty impressive. Caught this while scrolling through Netflix and saw that it was on the top 10 for movies seen this week and luckily I gave it the ol’ college try. Stylized and well staged setups are abound for the massive amount of kills that occur and the setting of a workplace retreat adds a diverse set of characters with most being narcissists that may deserve their gruesome fates. The tension of who the big bad killer is can be…

  • The Boogeyman

    The Boogeyman


    It wants to be The Babadook so bad but it doesn’t have enough depth or creativity to pull off at least a respectable imitation. The bad CGI monster doesn’t do any favors either.

  • Halloween III: Season of the Witch

    Halloween III: Season of the Witch


    Better off not being associated with the Halloween brand especially since there is no sighting of Michael Meyers. The aspect of witchcraft and brainwashing through media has its moments but it’s hard to understand why this is considered a “sequel”. A sequel is usually a continuation of the story offered in past films; this is like someone taking the wrong exit to a location and then eventually getting back on the highway with the help of GPS rerouting to the desired destination. A cool detour but feels so disconnected that you start missing the psycho killer with the mask wreaking havoc.

  • Halloween II

    Halloween II


    Am I a rebel for saying that this is much more fulfilling than the original Halloween? If I am, then I’m loving my position. 

    It’s funny how a 17 year old innocent kid is killed during the early parts of the film and neither Dr. Loomis and the police even a simple apology or sign of remorse for the accident. I know times are desperate and a killer is on the loose but no acknowledgment about the loss of an…
