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 […]

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 […]

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.

Farce or Fantasy? Filmmaking Through the Lens of ‘Day for Night’

I Can’t Believe They Ruined Star Wars! (Rant/Angry Review)

Kathleen Kennedy needs to STOP because she’s ruining my Star Wars. You might not know this, but I am the biggest Star Wars fan in the entire galaxy. I have read all the novels, I have a shelf of all the collectible toys still pristine in their original packaging, and I have dressed as a […]
