    Claydream

    ★★★½

    Claydream is a documentary incapsulating the early history of an animation form I feel is underappreciated. As someone that absolutely adores claymation and animation in general, this documentary was able to provide plenty of insights into the roots of this art form as a well as its creators. Between Will Vinton's incredible mustache and the power of corporate nepotism, the documentary left me with new insights on a niche category of filmmaking, especially in regards to the business side of…

    Jordan Peele as a horror director is a mixed bag for me. I know both Get Out and Us have received overwhelmingly positive ratings from pretty much everyone who's seen them. Whenever I'm in a conversation about the best horror films of the past decade, typically Get Out is at least mentioned in those discussions. But for whatever reason, I watch his films and just don't see what those people see. Now don't get me wrong, Get Out and Us…

This is that movie. If someone flat…

    Now going into this I expected this to be a soulless cash grab like the other live action Disney films. I had no intention of seeing this and was going to just write it off as that without actually having have had seen it. This movie is not only unoriginal but it’s quite technically incompetent. I don’t really have much connection to the original Mulan. I remember watching it growing up but it’s not really something that had sticked with me.…

    The Haunting of Bly Manor

    ★★★

    Bly Manor is pretty good but it has a lot of problems that really weigh it down. I sort of feel the same way about this as I did with Hill House. I don’t remember much of Hill House but I also liked that probably around the same amount as this. 

    I’ll start with what I liked first. The cinematography is fantastic, pretty much every shot is filled with meaning. It conveys this constant feeling of dread and sorrow that…
