    Before Sunrise

    If there’s any kind of magic in this world it must be in the attempt of understanding someone sharing something.

    Each viewing I have of this film brings upon a new perspective. While Before Sunrise has always been one of my all time favorites, this time around I truly feel it on a deeper level. It’s love captures on celluloid. Not your typical romance movie, but true love and understanding. Jesse’s comment about how he’s always felt like he’s only…

    This will be my third time reviewing this film and I can still find new things to gush about. I’ll try to keep this brief though. Perfectly imperfect. The score has always been amazing, but I think it may be my favorite by Carpenter now. Just the best pairing with the moody atmosphere. It seems everyone is firing on all cylinders. Wallace, Cundey, Carpenter and Atkins. All stars. I have to touch on…

    Wishmaster

    Djinn-credible! How was this made in 1997? Apart from the late 90s direct to video sheen at times, Wishmaster feels straight from the 80s. Practical effects galore. KNB straight up created a wankfest of how to top their previous make-up effects during the climax. As far as the Djinn goes, he’s a great villain. A combo of Freddy and Pinhead yet feels original. What I liked most about this movie was it’s ludicrousness. Moments of wildness keeps your attention focused and your mind anticipating what will come next. When I redo my Top 100 Horror Films list later this year I know I’ll include Wishmaster.

    5. 1950s

    Simplicity at its best. Tokyo Story takes its time until it totally overwhelms you at the end. Watching your parents get old is terrifying. These once youthful and strong people who protected you are now slowly becoming the opposite, and reliant on you to care for them. It’s a depressing yet inevitable situation. This film made me thankful that I’ve tried being the best son I can be. Sometimes it never seems like…

    4. 1940s

    One of the most visually attractive films I’ve seen. It’s no wonder Criterion chose it as one of their first 4k releases! The centerpiece ballet sequence was truly enchanting. I’m talking eyes glued to the screen and putting you in a trance kind of mesmerization. One of my favorite things about film is it’s ability to make you a fan of its subject matter when in real life you could care less. Such…

    What a beautiful film that subtlety strikes a chord. Minimalist apart from the sound editing. It’s so simple, yet full of familiar and tranquil sounds. When I go, I think that’s what I’ll miss the most: the sounds. You don’t need visuals to envision the beauty around you. Just close your eyes and let the sounds remind you what you’ve experienced. You’ll be amazed what you associate with what you’ve heard…
