Somehow, Moviepass has returned.
A representative for Studio Ghibli came on to the stage to discuss about the making of the film. There wasn’t really much detail other than the sheer ambiguity of the project. The rep asked the audience not to share the full details of the plot. However, sharing the experience is greatly appreciated. And even before the screening started, there was an uncertainty about Hayao Miyazaki’s fate as a filmmaker. It’s been debunked by Studio Ghibli that Miyazaki is…
By the half way mark, I finally understand what Triet was saying about this being about the sanctuary of family. Anatomy of A Fall takes two sides behind an alleged murder. Sandra (Sandra Huller) is an author who is accused of murdering her husband. Her husband is also an author. Her son is visually impaired and isn’t able to distinguish what happened to his dad. Throughout the runtime, Sandra is tested by both sides of the offense and…
You ain’t tickling the pearl, caressing the neck!- Mr. G
Marshawn Lynch threw his whole ass in this role. He probably had the best adlibbing performance out the entire cast in my opinion. But everyone else is giving me that early 2000’s parody vibes. This is like a twisted Mean Girls. Also, that “Complicated” needle drop.

Hooptober X: Italy
You had me with Zombie vs an Italian Shark.
This is sorta a sequel to George Romero's Dawn of the Dead. However like I mentioned before, it's Italian and sorta a reinterpretation of Romero's original work. This time around, we have a group of people conducting research on the island of Matul. They start fucking around with voodoo and shit. Or at least from what the Caribbean people say. Once they land on Matul, all hell breaks…
So let me get this straight.
The actual history behind the Dahomey Tribe stems from them owning slaves. In a media literacy sense, you have to understand the repercussions of portraying these people as the “heroes” of the story. Hollywood has always entertained the idea of “Based on A True Story”. So why is it now controversial to make a Hollywood adaptation of this tribe? Well. Most of the controversial discourse lies beneath the racism and misogyny of the alt-right…
To open your film with an unsimulated sex scene is incredibly bold and insane. Bad Luck Banging or Loony Porn recently won the Golden Bear at the 2021 Berlin International Film Festival. I’m not entirely familiar with this director’s work nor the Romanian New Wave movement. This was a wild ride to uncover. The first part of the film is about a teacher who is caught up with a sex tape scandal. We follow her through the streets of Bucharest,…
