    Cat People

    ★★★★★

    Jacques Tourneur’s Cat People, released on December 25, 1942, was a clear reflection of the times in which it was made. It conveyed the fears of sexuality, feminism, and foreigners and personified it in the form of a foe that takes on an innocent form.

    The film was a last ditch effort by RKO Pictures to save itself from bankruptcy. They had just released two box office bombs by acclaimed director Orson Welles: Citizen Kane and The Magnificent Andersons. As…

    Apocalypse Now

    ★★★★½

    Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now, a war film based loosely on Joseph Conrad’s Heart Of Darkness, was released on August 15, 1979. It was a clear reflection of the times in which it was made.

It personifies it in the form of a former American war hero, and the soldiers sent by his…

    ★★★★½

    Gorgeous animation and the best character of the franchise: what more could one really ask for a short film?

  • Assassin's Creed: Lineage

    Assassin's Creed: Lineage

    ★★★½

    Limited by its budget but this is a pretty finely crafted little series of shorts/short film. Wonder how the Netflix series will turn out since that’s guaranteed to have a lot more money behind it.

    Side note: Assassins Creed II is overrated as hell and you can’t change my mind on that.

    I love how the ultimate  force of demonic terror is beaten by a chainsaw.

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    ★★★½

    I’ll say this: it’s definitely a Star Wars movie. I mean....what the hell else am I supposed to say?


    I liked it but I’m kind of tired. I’m tired of all of it.


    I want new cinematic experiences. I want new franchises. I want new stories. I’m glad they’re taking a hiatus with the movies.


    It’s a good movie but it’s problems are numerous and it’s leaps in logic are bewildering, also there’s some moments that it’s just cheesy. So…
