    Venom

    ★½

    Parasites gone wild. Sony has had a knack for making very accessible, by-the-numbers blockbusters in the last decade or so. This had led to countless forgettable, aggravating, and lame blockbusters, particularly with the Spider-Man universe. Aside from Batman, I believe the world of Spider-Man is the most rich and interesting world to dive into. I had no intention of seeing Venom, but one of my friends decided to skip class today to see this so I decided why not tag…

    The Sisters Brothers

    ★★★★½

    Rough times in the wild west. The last film I watched during my triple-feature at the theaters yesterday, I wasn’t sure what to make of this film when I first watched the trailers. I thought the cast was very intriguing, and I was aware of how great Audiard’s filmography is, but I just wasn’t sure how I felt about the premise and the comedy aspects of it. I heard great things about the film from a few of my favorite…

    Halloween

    ★★½

    On this week’s episode of why I hate going to the theater:

    My dad and sister were planning on watching this film for the first time last Saturday and they had an extra ticket and offered to take me since no one else liked horror movies in the family. I took them up on the offer, but what I didn’t realize was that they were going to see it at the dreadful Mall of Georgia. I told my dad, “dad,…

    Halloween

    ★★½

    Your past will haunt you forever. I was not looking forward to this film at all when it was originally announced, but after some critical acclaim and hype surrounding the film I was all for a great Halloween sequel. The talent behind the film, along with a direct sequel to the first movie was what brought me in and I have to say the movie didn’t quite live up to the hype. This is definitely better than a majority of…

    A Star Is Born

    ★★★★½

    Maybe it’s time to let the old ways die. When I first watched the trailer for this film I thought it was going to just be another average movie trying to bank off of a non-actor being placed in a prominent role during Oscar season. Every time I saw the trailer after that I had a 180-feeling, and I couldn’t wait to see what Cooper had in store from a directing standpoint. I had never seen the other adaptations, so…

  • The Hate U Give

    The Hate U Give

    ★★

    A messy message. Coming in, I wasn’t really expecting much out of this movie based on the trailer alone. I had a very similar negative reaction to the trailer for Blindspotting, but that ended up being one of my favorite movies of the year so far, so I was hoping The Hate U Give would turn out similarly. Unfortunately my fears came true, and although the message for the film is obviously necessary, the execution is quite poor. The movie…
