  • Into the Wild

    Into the Wild


    There are movies like The Pursuit of Happyness, The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, Grave of the Fireflies and Shoplifters that highlight the beauty and strength of the human spirit and family bonds in the face of the injustice of poverty.

    ...and then there's Into the Wild aka "my days were more exciting when I was penniless" .

    I can see why people like this story, I really do. But all I could see was the entitled privilege of its main character.

  • Face/Off



    I was not prepared for this movie and clearly I am not ready for it either.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    "The only thing you really fight for is yourself. You're not the guy to make the sacrifice play, to lay down on a wire and let the other guy crawl over you"

    "I've got red in my ledger and I'd like to wipe it out"

    These and so many other quotes and moments from previous MCU films have a new weight to them in light of this film. Callbacks done right.

    Since there are barely any explanations for this film (le sarcasm) I wrote one of my own including the quotes above.

    One extra push to extend the impact of certain scenes and I would be fully obsessed with this movie. So close yet so far.
