The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly of Animated Sequels

Remember when this was my main review format? Yeah, apparently me neither. This isn’t even how I did it; it was always one film not this weird fudge, marry, kill movies edition. Alright, let’s review away. The Good – How to Train Your Dragon: The hidden World https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SkcucKDrbOI How to Train Your Dragon is an […]

RGB and Captain Marvel Share Best Kiss on the Iron Throne – MTV Movie Awards

The MTV MOVIE AWARDS are coming up and I’m certainly not their audience, but that wouldn’t stop me from voting anyway. I have no idea what I’m talking about so this should could be interesting. Let’s see how it went shall we. Why is BlacKKKsman here? Great movie but why pretend like it fits in […]

Putting on the Producer’s Cap: Pitching the Next Detective Pikachu

Currently the lightning mouse detective is taking the world by storm. So far, the initial response seems vaguely positive which as a video game adaptation…we take those. Video game film adaptations have a notorious history of being less than stellar. Most for reasons spanning from failing to understand the value of player autonomy in certain […]

The Sympathetic Killer

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil, Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Vile Ted Bundy is what I think is the title of the Netflix movie everyone is talking about at the time of writing this. I’ve heard mixed responses on the film mostly pertaining to how the film has chosen to portray Ted Bundy through the perspective […]

A Critic’s Critique of the Critics’ Critic: Are You Allowed to Say Endgame is Bad?

Preface: I don’t like to stir the pot but I mean just look at that title. It was too fun to pass up the opportunity to write that. I feel it necessary to warn you all that there is something truly terrifying that I will be discussing today, and it is something that may have […]

Conventional Wisdom(shortcut ep. 3)

Hello everyone, welcome back to my short film series shortcut where we look at short films usually through a specific lens to hopefully think of these various elements of film to gain some perspective and grow as media creators and critics ourselves.

When One Episode Turns Good to Great – Beyond the Boundary Episode Review

Anime is a cruel and unforgiving mistress. The bittersweet nature I’m finding with enjoying anime series is that there are certainly incredible shows to be discovered, but a lot of them will be a brief affair. For some context, what I’m talking about all comes down to syndication philosophy. My fellow Americans… let’s face it […]

Ooh What a Twist! (shortcut ep. 2)

Short films live and die on how with it being such a short commitment to watch them what makes them worth remembering? Often filmmakers will pander to political biases to make their work noteworthy… when that doesn’t work they may try to demonstrate their outside the box writing chops by creating an ending the audience […]

Epic Endgame Review

So, I just saw Avengers: Endgame and while my review style is to be somewhat interpretative to allow you to weigh my criticisms and praises to reflect on your own… but there are no opinions when it comes to this movie… only facts. The fact is this is the greatest film in all of existence. […]

I Fixed Sonic the Hedgehog… What Could Possibly Go Wrong?

Just what an ugly mug. There’s no beating around the bush, Sonic is ugly. I’m sorry society is so shallow that we have to judge this real gangsta by the artificial nature of his looks. Do you think Sonic asked to be this ugly, like he went up to the CGI animators like it was […]

Shorts of Famous Directors (shortcut ep. 1)

Welcome everyone to what I hope can be a marvelous beginning to a new series. I guess you could say that I am a connoisseur of short films and to my dismay…. generally, people don’t care. But that ends today, because I’m going to take you on a journey through the art, the craft, the […]
