  • Babylon



    Babylon is a severe miscalculation on nearly all fronts, yet a partially exceptional film is forged out of its sheer grandiosity, carrying the movie to heights that surpass that of the actual quality and depth of the craft on display. Said grandiosity can only push the film forward for so long however, with the problem essentially being with Babylon peaking too early, both emotionally and in terms of its chaos, turning the majority of a three hour film into a…

    2001: A Space Odyssey


    2001: A Space Odyssey is a film that I would hesitate to call a favorite of mine, yet I can’t bring myself to give it anything less than a perfect score. There really is only one film that has ever tested the bounds of cinema and changed the art form as a whole, and that film is 2001: A Space Odyssey. This film is far more experimental than Kubrick is often given credit for. The long sections of bright imagery…

    Lady in the Water


    critics need to stop acting like they understand an artist’s intentions better than the artist themselves. lots of writers on here, including myself on occasion, approach a structural critique of a film with a rather arrogant tone, obnoxiously breaking down why specific elements of the work either are effective, or are not, with a touch of didacticism, explaining away subjectively meaningful material with an arbitrary criteria. the beauty of criticism is that the criteria for each individual critic will be…

  • Heathers



    teen suicide, school gun violence, vulgar homophobia all exploited as a means of attaining a specific edgy humor within its commentary, one completely devoid of subtlety, which only ends up achieving a mildly effective point on the detrimental impacts of artificial hierarchies, something that could’ve quite easily been illustrated without such an extreme provocation and insensitivity.

    The Shawshank Redemption


    On paper, The Shawshank Redemption checks off all the boxes. Good writing, even pacing, with superb performances, but what causes my viewpoint to not match the consensus on this film is the simple fact that this movie takes zero risks. Everything seen in this film has been done before in some capacity. There is such a little amount of unique characterization infused into the two lead characters, that I didn’t come away from the film feeling like I knew anything…

    The Thing


    After a much needed rewatch, I am upset to report that this film still isn’t my thing. I hear all the praise for this movie every day, and I still can’t comprehend how this film is so beloved, and commonly cited as the greatest horror film of all time. The Thing isn’t something that I consider poorly made nor does it have any flaws that immediately jump out, it just feels painfully average to me. The psychological aspect of this…
