    Malignant

    β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    I am the Malignant viewer who began the film with confusion. Why is James Wan pushing all too familiar horror tropes but not doing anything too creative with them? Why do I feel like I'm watching the cut scene to a zombie survival video game? Hell is breaking loose at the mental asylum, what inventory will my character receive to battle the demons?

    Pretty soon I relaxed. I remembered a master of the craft has the wheel. James Wan is…

    Basket Case

    Basket Case is oh so special to me. Deeply deeply personal. It is all connected to my ulcerative colitis. I would like to share why. Heads up, I am going to be graphic.

    My colitis developed in high school, at a time in my life where I already had plenty of challenges. Girls, SATs, independence from my parents . You know the drill. Colitis comes along junior year and adds to the party. It chains me to the toilet night…

    A.I. Artificial Intelligence

    There is a lot of interesting history on Stanley Kubrick's contribution to A.I.. If Kubrick didn't pass in '99, his name may have come out on the directing and/or producing credits. The movie is dedicated to him.

    2001: A Space Odyssey (oh shit I just realized A.I. came out in 2001 πŸ€―β€” coincidence?) is my favorite movie of all time. Kubrick is one of my favorite directors. I'm gonna be honest, I don't see any Kubrick in A.I.. I see…

    Halloween III: Season of the Witch

    β˜…β˜…β˜…Β½

    No Mikey Myers but a demented toy manufacturer out for blood? I'll take it.

    While Halloween III lacks the antagonist of the first two films (minus a brief appearance on a television screen), the movie parallels its predecessors' slow, suspenseful tone while achieving something remarkably different. The London Bridge is Falling Down theme song is pestilent. I was about ready to throw my remote at the TV by film's end. The annoyance feels intentional. A way of identifying with the…

    Saving Private Ryan

    Ok, I'm sorry. The last time I watched Saving Private Ryan I walked away dissatisfied. I found it sanctimoniously patriotic. A much too American film for a viewer wanting more objectivity.

    Let's flush the take from my last viewing down the drain. I remember seeing it last while recovering from a broken ankle. I definitely was not in the best of spirits and I let that influence my opinion. Saving Private Ryan is a very American film, but that is…

    Luca is a generational talent. Pristine court vision, high basketball IQ, and a leader on and off the court. At only 22 years of age, he is only beginning to show the world what he can do.
