    Grade: MASTERPIECE (5 out of 5)

    I am in awe of what Bong Joon-ho has accomplished with Parasite. After two subpar films (that’s right, I didn’t really enjoy Snowpiercer nor Okja), I feared Bong had lost his mojo, especially after three fantastic South Korean films.

    Parasite removes all doubt and makes me ashamed I doubted Bong for a moment. The praise and the hype might seem like hyperbole, but I assure you they are not. Parasite is not only one…

    Grade: MASTERPIECE (5 out of 5)

    "Why so seriou--- Wait, that's not it.

    "You ever dance with the devil in the pale--- No, that's not it either.

    "Is it just me, or is it getting crazier out there?"
    -Arthur Fleck

    In 2016, New York City (aka Gotham) had 335 homicides, which was nearly one homicide a day. Sounds rough? Well, in 1981, New York City had 1,826 homicides! This carnival of crime is the setting of Todd Phillips' Joker. Add…

    Wild Tales

    ★★★★½

    Grade: HALL OF FAME (4.5 out of 5)

    This movie is...well...wild. The stories told in Wild Tales would probably be stretched too long if each one got a stand-alone movie; however, in the anthology format these vicious tales shine.

    While there are no philosophical or spiritual depths to be mined, or amazing characters that will remain with you for years, Wild Tales is too much fun to ignore. So do yourself a favor, buckle up and push play.

    P.S. Some have said the stories are too far fetched. Well, I agree! But the movie is called Wild Tales after all...

  • Apocalypse Now

    Apocalypse Now

    ★★★★★

    Grade: MASTERPIECE (5 out of 5)

    The horror...

    Apocalypse Now is a vision that is never compared to other movies, but rather other movies get measured up to Apocalypse Now.

    Watching director Francis Ford Coppola's epic is like slowly floating down the mouth of madness, where genres, reviews, and interpretations are pointless. Apocalypse Now follows Captain Benjamin L. Willard on a harrowing journey inward, where the only hope for him to keep his sanity and his life is to ultimately…

    This review is guaranteed to be completely SPOILER-FREE!

    Dear Marvel,

    You had a unique vision for a series of movies that would weave a massive tapestry of a story. The only way this vision would become a reality is if you had trust in viewers to be dedicated enough to watch every movie and smart enough not to get lost in the story.

    Your trust in us was well placed,…
