A film that demonstrates a rich dichotomy between ideological differences can be considered as old as film itself. Yet, international director Fernando Meirelles (City of God, Blindness) delivers with his recent film The Two Popes in constructing the perfect paradox of a film that feels entirely timeless as well as crucially contemporary.

So, I have just watched the recent Netflix Original series The Circle and let me just say that it is one of the lowest common denominator pandering, reality television nonsense… and I love it! The self-proclaim “social media competition” mixes elements of Big Brother and Catfish to address new age internet culture behind the ruse … Continue reading Why Every Blogger Should Watch Netflix’s The Circle

"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.

Twas the night before Christmas and all here is groovy. Except for the panic to gift one more Christmas post from K at the Movies. " I have no ideas and there's only one week!" K let out in a shriek.

“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?

In the spirit of Halloween I decided to check out the Netflix "series" titled Don't Watch This and every review I've seen of it makes the same joke how the title really represents the show well.

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. You know the dialogue is bad when I watch the opening scene and think that this is some kind of "movie within … Continue reading ‘A Perfect Man’ is Unintentionally Kinda Funny (Review)

I can't believe this film has a 92% on Rotten Tomatoes. Feel free to disagree but I felt this film was a classic example of "good premise" and sincere intentions but incredibly lackluster execution.

Where does one even begin to discuss this special?

Netflix did it, maybe my standards have slowly been chipped away but Netflix finally made a "good" movie. In fairness, I haven't seen every Netflix film, and I've missed some recent ones in Kissing Booth (no thank you) and Alex Strangelove or how I Learned to Stop Worry and Love a Guy. Netflix always … Continue reading Netflix Finally Did It! ‘set it up’ is the First Decent Original Movie!
13 Reasons Why is a guilty pleasure of mine, Netflix's attempt to copy an MTV teen drama in the vein of Teen Wolf, Awkward, or Finding Carter but with an interest in the taboo.
