    ***200th Review***
    WARNING: LONG REVIEW

    I bounced back and forth between a couple of very different movies for my 200th log, but it felt so right to go back to one of my favorite comedies of all time. I plan on going back to some of their others in the future, but Duck Soup has always been a go-to. This is probably my 5th or 6th viewing.

    I've shown a few friends this movie, and like this time, just watched…

    ***250th Review***

    Well boys, strap in. It's gonna be a long review. I finally got to revisit my favorite film of all time, for my 250th log on here.

    Taxi Driver is so difficult to put into words, just how incredible a film it is and exactly how much it means to me and my life. When I first saw back probably 10 or so years, I didn't see the hype. Nothing was understood. I actually disliked it. I kept…

    ★★★★

    "Listen to them. Children of the night. What music they make!"

    I couldn't go through Halloween season and NOT revisit this old beauty.

    People and myself included talk about iconic films and what they did for generations to come. Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Jaws, Star Wars, the list goes on forever. Yet none come close to how historic this character and his portrayal are.

    89 years. To this day 89 years later, mediums still go on to give Dracula the accent…

  • House on Haunted Hill

    House on Haunted Hill

    ★★★★

    I'm not afraid to say this is a huge guilty pleasure for me already, and it's only the first time I've watched. House on Haunted Hill plays out like an extended episode of Twilight Zone. And I freaking love it.

    My first impressions were a bit weak, as a couple of the characters' faces are superimposed on a backdrop, talking to the camera. The hackiness did not escape me.

    Shortly after however, the house is showcased and I hesitate to…

    ★★½

    Gotta give a shoutout to my brothers Jacob and Rafael on here, as they stand with me for not being the greatest fans of this film.

    Never did I believe I would be watching a Boris Karloff movie where I lost interest. I know exactly why too: he's hardly in it and he never utters a word! The only time he's on screen is to lumber around, too reminiscent of Frankenstein. This is the same director, but that doesn't excuse…

  • Pan's Labyrinth

    Pan's Labyrinth

    ★★★★★

    Children are our future. This adage has been pounded into our brains since the beginning of time. But that's rather simplistic and concise. They are our past, present, future, potential, mentors. They are everything.

    It's no more clear than the moments we see the adults struggling, caught in the throes of conflict, their pride and selfishness leading all actions. Ofelia's step father serves as the nadir of all humankind, wiping out his fellow man for the littlest of reasoning.

    Ofelia…
