    The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent

    ★★★★

    The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent is a joyful, meta celebration of a virtuoso who has given his life to cinema: Nicolas Cage. Not just my favorite actor of all time, but a performer who reminds me why I decided to pursue my passion of writing and directing for film. He defies conformity, and through his risk-taking was able to make two of my favorite films in 2021, Pig and Prisoners of the Ghostland. When I heard Cage was attached…

    I’m glad that Sonic has found an audience after redesign issues (the vfx house Moving Picture Company shutting down shortly after single-handedly saving the original film), and although I found the first installment mediocre at best, its completely apparent that director Jeff Wadlow genuinely cares about the characters and source material. I will always be rooting for this franchise’s success, and I’m glad to say this sequel is a notable improvement. While its considerable flaws challenged the limits to which…

    Michael Bay's evolution from being labeled as a disposable director of the 1990s to being heralded as one of the last action auteurs going against the machine-like output of superhero movies has fascinated me (especially after a decade of familiarity with Transformers). He made his streaming debut in 2019 with Six Underground, a chaotic and often overwhelming franchise-starter that failed to provide an interesting story or characters despite its memorable moments. This is his first theatrical feature since The Last…

    When Sony announced a new cinematic universe that would develop parallel to Disney, There seemed to be only two possible outcomes. We have seen the early announcements of I.P., such as the Dark Universe or DC’s original ten-year slate failing spectacularly for the studios. In contrast, smaller projects like The Conjuring and Glass pulled in profit despite poor reviews. Like most people who follow the genre, I was surprised when the first Venom film found as much success as it…

    Steven Spielberg released Artificial Intelligence, Minority Report, and War of the Worlds all in the span of four years. I believe Minority Report to be the best of the unofficial 2000's Spielberg sci-fi trilogy, creating the most compelling story and character dynamic between Tom Cruise and Colin Farrell. The bleached look gives the film an incredibly unique color palette, the universe feeling much dirtier than usual futuristic depictions.

    This is a dark story from Phillip K. Dick (who also wrote…

    When Get Out was first released three years ago, it not only struck a chord with the horror community but film culture in general, comedian turned director Jordan Peele scoring the best screenplay Oscar and universal acclaim from worldwide audiences. Peele's sophomore feature came with mounting expectations but still managed to surpass his extraordinary debut with one of the best horror films of the twentieth century thus far.

    The film is directed with meticulous detail, every plot element seeping in…
