    Promising Young Woman

    ★★★

    YOUTUBE REVIEW - HERE 

    Promising Young Woman is a colorful, vibrant revenge story with an amazing lead performance from Carey Mulligan. The story goes into many unusual places but it somehow almost always worked. Bo Burnham does a great job as well and this is vital in making their dynamic in the second act work as well it does. The story structure and cartoony nature could be a bit much at points, but this is just a really fun watch.

    Each chapter builds upon the previous one with new perspectives being given on death, loss, and turmoil. The overarching themes are broad enough for this type of anthology to work; nothing feels repetitive or stagnant when it comes to the ideas that Rasoulof is trying to convey. The first chapter may be pretty difficult to get through since it mainly build-up, but this is easily one of the best films of 2020.

  • WandaVision

    WandaVision

    Episode 1: The first episode starts out with a cheesy intro akin to that of sitcoms of the past. Here we’re introduced to our two main characters, Wanda and Vision. It’s shown that they just moved into a new house in a new town. It’s also shown in the intro and first few scenes that both of their powers still work, although they’re much more cartoonish in comparison to how they’re shown in previous Marvel movies. The typical husband and…

  • Moloka'i Bound

    Moloka'i Bound

    The simplistic nature that many short films are able to achieve always amazes me. It’s a natural atmosphere that many feature-length films rarely try to accomplish for fear of being too dull or boring. Short films like Alika Maikau’s Moloka’i Bound is a perfect example of presenting this type of just that. 

    Above all, Maikau aims to develop his characters in the short amount of runtime that Moloka’i Bound takes up. The characters Kainoa (Holden Mandrial-Santos) and Jonathan (Austin Tucker)…

  • I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    I'm Thinking of Ending Things

    ★★★★

    Charlie Kaufman’s new movie, I’m Thinking of Ending Things is a real standout in his filmography. In his newest film, he delves into multiple different genres including horror and thriller which he had never really tackled before. The very loose story that’s presented follows a couple played by Jessie Buckley and Jesse Plemons who basically go through the motions of being in a relationship. 

    The very unique use of time that was in Synecdoche, New York is very prevalent in…

  • The Devil All the Time

    The Devil All the Time

    ★★★½

    Antonio Campos’s newest film, The Devil All the Time is an extremely well paced film with a unique view on religion and its effects on people of all kind. In this film, Campos focuses on multiple different characters living through their own trials and tribulations, each of them intertwined with each other. 

    The story, albeit not very challenging, had some really well deserved payoffs as well as some interesting reincorporation throughout the film. Many of the characters presented all have…
