    Borat Subsequent Moviefilm

    ★★½

    “My disappointment is immeasurable and my day is ruined”

    Not really, but is it just me or did this not come anywhere near the original? With the first Borat film, Sacha Baron Cohen wanted to expose the deep seeded racism in America, but unfortunately since the release of the first Borat, that racism has made itself broadly known. So instead Sacha Baron Cohen opted to try and expose the humanity of America during a highly contentious time. This leads to…

    ★★★★½

    Man, I had an absolute blast with this movie! It’s obviously not high art, but its fun! I watched this with my mom and we had a great time.

  • I Know What You Did Last Summer

    I Know What You Did Last Summer

    ★★★½

    I Know What You Did Last Summer is a fun, but very flawed slasher film. For the first two acts of this film I was actually really invested in the story, characters and mystery of the film. The third act...well we’ll get there. First what I like. The characters, you actually care about them. The film does a smart thing, the first twenty minutes or so is really light and fluffy. This allowed for the characters to be properly developed…

    Hocus Pocus

    ★★★★½

    Hello. It’s been a long time. It’s not like I’ve not been watching movies, on the contrary I’ve watched a lot of movies. But in between school, watching spooky movies, and other Halloween festivities I legitimately have not had time to sit down and write reviews. So with that said I’m going to do some rapid fire reviews of some movies I’ve watched to celebrate the holiday season. Sorry for any inbox spamming. You can find all the movies I…

  • The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

    The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

    ★★★★½

    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is one of the creepiest horror movies ever made. It’s a testament to the power of directing and cinematography, because it’s true that you don’t really care about the characters or the overarching story with the grave robbing. It’s disturbing because of its unflinching tone. It’s got a feel to it, a feeling of disgust and unrest. To put it quite bluntly in makes you feel like you are in hell. It feels sticky and hot…

  • Vampires vs. the Bronx

    Vampires vs. the Bronx

    ★★★½

    Vanpires Vs. The Bronx, isn’t something we haven’t seen before. But it is a fun, Halloween movie. The simple slasher premise works surprisingly well when put into the Bronx location. The three main kids have terrific chemistry, you really buy that they have grown up and been through a lot together. Most of the horror stuff is pretty effective, from a filmmaking perspective it’s pretty solid. I have a few issues however. The gentrification theme, while being very well handled…

  • The Mothman Prophecies

    The Mothman Prophecies

    ★★★★

    This would’ve been a masterpiece if the story was a little more cohesive, however you can’t deny the sheer atmosphere of this film. This movie is really creepy. The cinematography and direction are great in drawing out as much tension as humanly possible from every scene, and there are some genuine scares here. The thick atmosphere of the film will keep you engaged when the story doesn’t. Also the acting is great. Richard Gere is fantastic here. He is an…

    ★★½

    Best performance from an actress ever? Probably.

  • Hubie Halloween

    Hubie Halloween

    ★★★

    I wasn’t expecting much from Hubie Halloween, and for the most part those low expectations were met. This movie is vapid, silly, and pretty incoherent. In other words it’s your typical Adam Sandler comedy...for the most part. I would say that Hubie Halloween is a cut above something like Jack and Jill or The Cobbler or Pixels for two reasons.

    1.) The actual character of Hubie is actually pretty like able, and not a despicable person like we are used…

  • Life of Pi

    Life of Pi

    ★★★★★

    Yes. I finally get a chance to talk about one of my all time favorite films on Letterboxd. I like to think that Life of Pi helped shaped the person I am today. I first saw the film at a very young age, and I found it to be so potent and raw. I’ve carried ideologies that this film teaches throughout my entire life. I’m not a super religious person necessarily, but the way Pi navigates his faith throughout the…

  • Lake Mungo

    Lake Mungo

    ★★★★½

    Fuck, I think I finally found a horror film that legitimately terrified me. I’ve seen disturbing movies before, but nothing that made me check the locks on my door and sleep with the light on. During what is easily the scariest scene in the film, my cat jumped on my bed, and dude, I jumped so high in the fucking air. This was a great experience. Lake Mungo is a genuinely terrifying horror film, that is not just scary for…

    Another watch for my film lit class. This is about as good as any “making of” documentary can get.
