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
“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?
I'm not going to say much on A Perfect Man (2013) because honestly, who gives a fudge about A Perfect Man. I'm just going to ramble nonsensically but this movie is lowkey hilarious.

This homage to classic psychological horror is endearing, it's a little raw in that fade to blacks and the sound effects seem rudimentary but it just even more gets the feeling … Continue reading Oh My ‘Darling’ (2015) ! [review]
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WwQ-NH1rRT4 The Florida Project is an exhibition of guerilla filmmaking at it’s finest. Director Sean Baker greatly improves from his iPhone shot film Tangerine and produces such a charming movie. The Florida Project is a mixture of false fantasy and the harsh reality that presents an absent plot film that gives us a slice of … Continue reading The Magic Found Beyond Wealth: ‘The Florida Project’ (Review)
Now fair reader, our haunting hour draws on apace. Four spooky weeks bring in another moon: but, O methinks, how slow this old moon wanes! She lingers my desires, like to a stepdame or a dowager long withering out a young man’s revenue. What irks thee so, that thou shalt contort thy face in such … Continue reading A Coming-Of-Age Movie to put you in the Halloween Spirit. ‘Boys in the Trees’ (Review)
