Cringer-Ella Is Worse Than I Ever Imagined

Very rarely would I describe watching a film and say that I hated every minute of it. Usually there's some area of production that I can call neat or even during the worst things I usual have a chuckle at film's expense. Then I watched Amazon Prime's Cinderella and there was no redeeming quality and … Continue reading Cringer-Ella Is Worse Than I Ever Imagined

He’s All That, The Movie Not So Much

Concessions Confessions: After what I have witnessed.... I'm starting to think that Oedipus guy had the right idea.

Brief Encounter: The Tragedy of Living in the Shadows

In regard to the classics, it always intrigues me about the forging of legacy and what gets held in regards of the pantheon of great films. Some criteria as to what films get repeatedly praised have continued relevance, excellent filmmaking, and possibly represent the era which they were created. However, the game isn’t always a … Continue reading Brief Encounter: The Tragedy of Living in the Shadows

I’m Thinking of Ending Things…

★★★★ No two snowflakes are the same. Despite a finite number of patterned symmetrical crystallization, predetermined by molecule arrangements no two ends up alike. Every snowflake's uniqueness is determined by its environment. What temperature it falls at? The humidity of the air? Singularity isn’t determined by who we are but how we exist. At the … Continue reading I’m Thinking of Ending Things…

The Invisible Guest (REVIEW)

Concessions Confession: The Invisible Guest is everything you’d want in a mystery thriller, full of twists, deception, and tantalizing crime.  Following the contemporary thriller format of misdirection and making the ‘mystery’ itself what needs to be solve; The Invisible Guest might take its trickery too far but never stops being engaging. Log Line: Spanish businessman … Continue reading The Invisible Guest (REVIEW)

Too Many Strange Christmas Guests? (X-Mas Special)

Christmas movies, there’s too many of them. I’m no Grinch or Christmas Scrooge it’s just there’s thousands of these flicks. For every Rudolph and Home Alone there’s hundreds of these cheap, silly, pandering, insipid, lazy, uninspired, and just downright stupid movies. As you can see from my past entries that I’ve found some interesting Christmas … Continue reading Too Many Strange Christmas Guests? (X-Mas Special)

“You’ve Never Seen a Tale Like This” Crystal The Lion King (Review)

In the last one: At least I’m glad that my favorite Disney movie doesn’t have any people in it so good luck making a live-action version of The Lion-King.

Diet Aladdin (2019) Review

https://media.giphy.com/media/X98PijOYa3Tl6/giphy.gif I just want to emphasize Jasmine’s facial expression here.

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.

Could This Actually Be True? The Secret Behind Synecdoche, New York

“Fantasy is hardly an escape from reality. It's a way of understanding it.” ― Lloyd Alexander Life can only contain so many fleeting moments before it all comes to an end. A brutal fact that everyone must accept at some point I suppose. Few films demonstrate a perspective of life filled with such existential melancholy … Continue reading Could This Actually Be True?

Geeks, Freaks, and Automobiles! Carnival of Souls Review

https://youtu.be/7goumTeBABw Carnival of Souls is best summarized as weird, cheap, but not lacking passion... I only hope I did it justice.

‘Velvet Buzzsaw’ What Exactly Am I Looking At?

"I can't save you"- Hoboman After watching a film as dense and awkwardly presented as Velvet Buzzsaw one might hope that a self-proclaimed critic such as myself can clarify the film in some regards or possibly legitimize your feelings of disdain or satisfaction. However, in this case I have to refrain and admit to you … Continue reading ‘Velvet Buzzsaw’ What Exactly Am I Looking At?

Is ‘Roma’ (2018) as Good as They Say?

“Fellini’s Roma” was attacked in some circles as an example of Fellini coasting on his genius. I find this point of view completely incomprehensible. Critics who would force Fellini back into traditional narrative films are missing the point; Fellini isn’t just giving us a lot of flashy scenes, he’s building a narrative that has a … Continue reading Is ‘Roma’ (2018) as Good as They Say?

Finding Your Way in the ‘City of God’

The tagline for City of God is captivating for those uninitiated, but a loaded statement to reflect upon after viewing. “If you run, the beast catches you; if you stay,the beast eats you” the tag iterates how fated circumstances constructed by environment and attitude will inevitable cause demise. The chicken that darts across the streets … Continue reading Finding Your Way in the ‘City of God’
