  • The Parallax View

    The Parallax View

    Okay, first just have to acknowledge just how damn good 70s political/conspiracy thrillers usually are. Like some of the best films out there. Really, really dug this. It sits sooooo much in silence (though not at first). Actually first thought this was leaning towards a more “out there” version of “Three Days of the Condor” and in some ways it is. But that latter half…. It really sticks the landing. I was invested throughout, but definitely in the second act…

    Conversations with a Killer: The John Wayne Gacy Tapes

    I know, I know, I said a French comedy…. Shut up I’m with family, this and binge watching “The Newsroom” is our bag apparently.

    My last 5/6 entries have either been superhero properties, horror, or both….

    It’s official, I’m watching a French rom-com tomorrow. That was truly an accident🤦🏼‍♂️

    Still think this was a brilliantly done film, even when watching with very critical parents.

  • Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    Mad props for Marvel letting Raimi insert so much of his signature direction in this, making some of the more original sequences I’ve seen in all of the MCU. Truly turns into great Raimi horror that I haven’t seen since Evil Dead or Drag Me To Hell. Also some of the ideas to expand the world of the MCU/Dark-hold were really interesting and I’d love to see more into that.

    This was fun…. A lot of fun…. Like truly I had…

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

    Imma start with a critique first, but let me acknowledge that I think this may be Marvels best series so far. But I’ll elaborate after…

    Idk what it is with these Marvel series and endings (maybe with the exception of Loki, maybe?), but like… y’all. You are doing beautiful work serving, and giving more time to flesh out these characters in a far more mature way. So why rush the ending for the sake of hitting exactly 6 episodes? If…

  • The Cabin in the Woods

    The Cabin in the Woods

    As someone who just watched the entire Scream franchise, every time I watch this film I respectfully think “eat your damn heart out ‘Scream’”

    I will scream it from the rooftop every time, in terms of smart, meta-commentary/satire on genre (especially horror), this is like… gold standard. Like Whedon’s Whedon but this is so, so smart! A strong credit  to Goddard being that this was his directorial debut and they wrote this film in 3 DAMN DAYS!

    Sam Raimi is such a lil crazy goon. I love it!

    Also, that ending cameo? Brilliance!!!!

    I would coin this as MARVEL’s most underrated gem. I truly love this film and I’m soooo excited to see Sam Raimi’s take on this world.

    Ghost in the Shell

    Saw it at the Row House and fully under the conclusion that 90s anime films should more regularly be screened in theaters…. Like woah…. This was stunning to not only see visually, but also experience sound-wise. Perhaps it was just the acoustics of the theater, but this sound design was brilliant, accompanied by a phenomenal, haunting score. 

    As for the story itself. Thick in its world-building, which works so effectively. The rules to this world are dense and unbelievably intelligent……

    The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

    You know, it’s not even that it was perfect, but I had an unbelievably fun time with this. Most fun I’ve had with a film for a while. A fun comedy that’s far more clever than most to a standard audience, but even more clever to film nerds… not just Nic Cage film nerds, really just film nerds in general. Sometimes messy with the story at points- like many comedies of this type can be -but I mean… what do…
