    Escape from New York

    ★★★★½

    (This is the second time I will be opening a review like this this week, but I don’t really care, because this entire film had moments where I was thinking) YEAH dude (and I really cannot stress this enough). The absolute AUDACITY for Mr. John Carpenter to release this film then The Thing the following year is a crazy flex. Escape from New York is a breezy, cool as ice, plot only, action driven GREAT time. Right from the opening…

    2022 Ranked

    Unexpectedly one of the most powerful, devastating, and brutally honestly films I’ve seen in the past year, which is saying a lot, because 2022 was full of stuff like this. Close is a brilliant exploration of childhood friendships, the impact they have, and the ways in which children can be largely impressionable to a cataclysmic degree. Brilliant performances all across the board, especially Eden Dambrine who’s given quite a lot to do, especially as such a young actor,…

    ★★★

    This was a much better Dead Space movie than the animated Dead Space movie I just saw. A pretty standard, often convoluted and messy si-fi/horror film with excellent technical attributes, Pandorum blends the likes of Alien, The Descent, and Dead Space (among a plethora of other pieces of media in the same vein) to craft a familiar, but fun watch. Easily the strongest elements are the production design and especially the lighting; most to probably all of the film uses…

    Dead Space: Downfall

    ★½

    Currently playing the Dead Space Remake that just came out (never played the original, but I’m loving this one) and wanted to check out the animated prequel movie for some more context, but I instead got a boring, edgy, time waster. Probably sounds harsh, but I really didn’t enjoy this one at all. There‘s some pretty good and brutal gore in this film and it’s easily the most fun elements in the whole runtime, but it’s otherwise full of characters…

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

    *SPOILERS*

    I’m actually dumbfounded by these positive reviews, because I found this to be horrifically exploitative, messy, and unsubtle in just about every single way. The writing is horrible and pandering, the acting (aside from possibly Joey Bada$$, who is decent, and I just like him) is horrible, and the overall execution is so misguided. The themes that are being presented are important and obviously deserve to be at the front line of discussion, but something about a racist police…

    *me calmly listening to the score, when all of a sudden, Daveed Diggs starts rapping* well, it would appear that this film is perfect.

    I’ve had a lukewarm feeling of Pixar within the last couple years. Not that they’ve made much of anything I would constitute as bad, it’s just that nothing from of recent memory has made me genuinely feel that they’re making something special like they used to; it’s all felt incredibly commercial. With the exception of Coco,…
