    Dear Evan Hansen

    ★★

    Dear Evan Hansen is the type of fascinating misfire that makes you wonder where everything went wrong. Adapted from a musical that took home six Tony awards all while stirring controversy for its portrayal of mental illness, it makes sense that a feature film could even out harsher criticisms all while preserving the magic of the original work. Instead, the film feels paved with one ill-conceived choice after another, executing the story in a tonally confused and desperately manipulative manner…

  • Ghost in the Shell

    Ghost in the Shell

    ★★★★★

    Ghost in the Shell is one of the rare sci-fi films that present a completely immersive visual experience all while delivering a bold and compelling story. The characters are complex and immediately engaging, director Mamoru Oshii reveling in both the slow and rapid nuances of a cyberpunk dystopia. This was the first film that introduced me to Japanese animation, and while I have seen many other Anime films and series since then, I cannot think of a film that created…

    Fright Night

    ★★★

    I wasn't expecting much from the 2011 remake of Fright Night, but after a rather uneventful first act, dramatically ramps up into a grisly and surprisingly endearing coming-of-age adventure, led by the late, great Anton Yelchin going up against his villainous next-door neighbor, portrayed by the effortlessly charming Colin Farrell. Craig Gillespie is one of the blandest directors working today, and while there are moments of inspired camerawork, the largest disappointment stems from how bland the film looks technically, despite…

  • Hellraiser

    Hellraiser

    ★★★½

    Clive Barker is one of the most underrated horror writers to ever come out of the 80's, and while he only directed only a few of his screenplays throughout the years, Hellraiser is one of the best feature debuts I have ever seen, blending incredible practical effects with an original and inventive story that elevates the film past similar B movies relying on shock value and expendable teenagers.

    What I found to be the most engaging aspect was the relationship…

    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…

    Minority Report

    ★★★★½

    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…
