    ***1,000th Review***

    Typically, I hate to self-reflect. Uncomfortable as heck for me, and certain messages may come across like I'm a narcissist. That couldn't be further from the truth, as I have very little confidence in myself. Just this once, I'm gonna change that narrative. There are very few things I'm proud of in my life, but sticking by this thing for 1,000 fairly lengthy reviews is definitely in that list.

    In my life, hobbies have come and gone, laziness…

    ***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…

    💜 My girlfriend’s rating: ⭐️ 2/5 ⭐️ 💜

    Kudos for stepping up the mature content a bit. A couple of moments felt like they’d be passing the PG-13 mark. More blood, bodies, and all-around disturbing scenes. For this series, that is. A pat on the back is really all I have the strength to give. No applause. 

    Well, some could argue a lot happens in this entry. Some could say nothing happens. I’m of the latter crowd. One quite large…

    💜 My girlfriend's rating: ⭐️ 1.5/5 ⭐️ 💜

    Something’s gotta be done about the fact that I’ve rated every movie so far a half star higher than her. Why am I finding more to like??

    Anyway, don’t take that too seriously. This one really hit the snooze button for two straight hours. I’m serious, I was fighting to keep my eyes open. She fell asleep. For a half hour, maybe even longer. She woke up eventually, her first post-nap words…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The cynic in me doesn’t want to go this high in rating, because ultimately I do have issues with it. You can't compare a movie like this to an art house film, so take the rating knowing it’s simply because the experience I got from injecting this drug of a film into my veins, and the dopamine released during that high, was unlike anything I’ve seen in a long time. 

    First of all, spoilers ahead. I’m marking the review, but…

  • A Quiet Place Part II

    A Quiet Place Part II

    ★★★★

    Silence is not enough, as every territory crossed with blackened, bloodied feet presents a new uphill battle. Cunning, determination, and strength must prevail in the overbearing silence.

    We're forced to bear witness to the arrival. Day 1. A date once speculated about in the first. Able to provide one more ounce of an answer in what the cause to the creatures was. Terror, confusion, hopelessness, panic. Captured like lightning in a bottle, the tension rising to heights growing from seeds…
