  • The Matrix Resurrections

    The Matrix Resurrections

    ★★★★½

    Although it works more as an epilogue, The Matrix Resurrections is a welcome fourth entry into the mythology that immediately puts to rest all of the questions asking, “Is this movie necessary”? In fact, Resurrections reflects on that very question in hopes of finding the answers in a climate dominated by nostalgia trips, remakes, reboot-quels, and pre-sequels. It doesn’t take very long for Resurrections to find those answers it’s looking for, and how it chooses to share its findings is…

    Spider-Man: No Way Home

    ★½

    Swinging into theaters to the tune of raucous crowds is Marvel Studios’ 27th entry in their cinematic universe, Spider-Man: No Way Home. The third entry in the sub-franchise owned by Sony and Marvel. This time Peter Parker faces his biggest, most revered foes in the wake of his reveal to the entire world. No Way Home uses this as the foundation for the biggest Spider-Man story ever put to film, but it proves to be too much for the script…

    ★★★★★

    Everyone should watch this movie at least once. Even then you should spoil yourself and watch it more than once. Although you know where the story is heading, and how Hitchcock will elevate the suspense, it never stops gripping you by the throat. 

    It’s so playful and unbelievably sincere in it’s playup of high society. Stewart’s performance is borderline robotic and inhuman, but it’s distinguishable and pointed. The type of performance an all-time great could give. 

    Some of the best camerawork ever put to film. Hitchcock really was THAT DUDE.

  • Princess Mononoke

    Princess Mononoke

    ★★★★½

    A staggering animated achievement that worked a lot more the second go around. Perhaps my growth with anime as a form of storytelling has developed since, but the structure and vivid nature of it’s messages pound like a drum. 

    A story in maintaining the sanctity of life, by preserving nature and all of it’s flourishes. It’s exciting and sad, terrifying and funny in equal regards. It’s a type of film that showcases the best techniques of Miyazaki. Probably the best introduction (unless you fight for Totoro instead) to Ghibli.

    Snow Steam Iron

    ★★★★½

    If Denis Villeneuve wasn't the best film-maker working today, Zack Snyder would have the best shot selection in all of Hollywood. This guy shot this movie on an iPhone and it looks better than most movies released on a budget 1,000 times the price of an iPhone X! Snow Steam Iron is a firm reminder that Snyder is one of the purest Hollywood visionaries working today. 

    In Snow Steam Iron we see a corrupt system in the snow laced streets of New…

    Boyhood

    ★★★★½

    Quite possibly the most ambitious film of 2014, Richard Linklater's, 'Boyhood' is a stunning work of art and one of cinema's finest achievements. This film is shot over 12 years of time from the years 2002-2014, following a boy by the name of Mason (played by Ellar Coltrane) throughout this time span.

    To be quite honest, I don't think I've ever resonated with a film more in my entire life. Following this boy growing up was absolutely incredible to watch,…
