    Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Third Phase: Where Things Start to Improve



    10 years ago when Iron Man came into the scene, the concept of an origin story and a bankable superhero film is not foreign. Studios have managed to create successful ones, some have even developed into a franchise. However, it was in the post-credit sequence in the first Iron Man film that certainly planted the seed of success that Marvel Studios would manage to attain if it played it’s cards…

    Annihilation

    ★★★★½

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

    Much like the meteor that came and landed on our planet, it obliterated a significant portion of Earth’s ecosystem, ranging from fauna to flora; a scientific accident that changed everything. It had annihilated the old and brought life to the new, with those that survived evolving to the needs of their own survival.

    It can be said that the incident of Alex Garland’s Annihilation is merely an accidental occurrence, where the point of impact has left an ever-growing ripple -…

    Review In A Nutshell:

    What Tamara Jenkins has to offer in The Savages is a familial construct that I have seen time and time again in my professional line of work. Families who have been ripped apart and chronically distant have found themselves reunited and faced with confronting conflict due to an illness within the circle. Jenkins shows that she is unafraid to convey the awkward, confusing, and morally conflicting circumstances that such a position would find themselves in, drawing…

    Bohemian Rhapsody

    ★★½

    Review In A Nutshell:

Bryan Singer’s attempt of interpreting the band’s growth through the years does carry an energy that is kinetic and engaging through it’s canvas of mini-climaxes, but even with such a resounding punch, there lacks a driving…

    Review In A Nutshell:

    The last couple of months have been hard, staring into the abyss titled "life"; with very little room behind me to run to, soon leaving me with only one single decision, which is to move forward. I am constantly worried about my future, whether or not I would find success in my chosen career pathway, whether I would find love,…

    Georges Franju was a talented French filmmaker who possessed the ability to penetrate the shell of his audience, to strike their most inner fears, vulnerabilities that we ourselves aren't even aware of. He managed to strike a nerve in me with the short documentary, released in 1949 titled Blood of the Beasts, where he takes us inside the frightening events that take place within a slaughterhouse, witnessing animals at their most helpless, an inability to…
