1917 – Mendes Plastic Bag on the Battlefield?

When it comes to 1917 I’m left wondering if people just read the press kit or if they actually went and sat through the entire movie. I thought 1917 maybe suffered from an incredibly unimaginable title but the real truth of the matter is what else was there to name it. The characters and plot … Continue reading 1917 – Mendes Plastic Bag on the Battlefield?

Kiki’s Delivery Service – A Taste of Something Familiar

How’s this for a cold open: Kiki’s Delivery Service has an astounding 97% on the good old Rotten Tomatoes. It has one rotten review that has it at a 2/4. This one negative review is from certainly an interesting critic; look no further than their 2016 Best & Worst Films.

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)

My ‘Doctor Sleep’ Drinking Games Will Kill You!

Doctor Sleep, maybe more like Doctor puts me to Sleep; maybe more like Doctor I Can’t Sleep That Child Torture Scene is Pretty Intense.

I feel it is appropriate … Continue reading My ‘Doctor Sleep’ Drinking Games Will Kill You!

Ready Up For A Bit of the Ultra ‘Violence Voyager’

Have you ever laid your eyes on something so strange and repulsive that it makes your skin crawl a bit? For me that was my initial reaction to when I first gazed upon this “thing” from Ujicha’s Violence Voyager. This odd-looking fetus Golem with some boom box shaped head and the eyes of a salted … Continue reading Ready Up For A Bit of the Ultra ‘Violence Voyager’

Return to the Carnival of Souls [31 Spooks of October]

I considered this lost media... but here we are. I made a video a while ago on the cult classic, public domain, spooky horror flick Carnivals of Souls. I had fun making it but ended up finding it a conceptually large review, and didn't enjoy it enough to edit the planned multiple videos for it.... … Continue reading Return to the Carnival of Souls [31 Spooks of October]

“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. Haha could you imagine… well good luck to whatever Disney property is the next victim. *Goes to check Disney’s line-up* AW F- And so it continues... UCK. … Continue reading “You’ve Never Seen a Tale Like This” Crystal The Lion King (Review)

Diet Aladdin (2019) Review

https://media.giphy.com/media/X98PijOYa3Tl6/giphy.gif I just want to emphasize Jasmine’s facial expression here. Remember when during A Whole New World it just looked like Jasmine was having the time of her life and it was this incredible journey: wind in your hair through this soft blue sky and despite it being this epic adventure across the world and … Continue reading Diet Aladdin (2019) Review

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

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

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.

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 as … Continue reading Could This Actually Be True? The Secret Behind Synecdoche, New York

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. I'd be lying if I said I was 100% glad how this review turned out, apologizes for lackluster efforts in terms of sound mixing and making the video entertaining but I think it certainly … Continue reading Geeks, Freaks, and Automobiles!

‘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?
