Two posts in a row with the same format, looks like Hollywood isn’t the only losings it’s creativity. Well, decided I had to post some good old simple movie reviews; movies is in the name and I don’t like feeling like I’m false advertising. You know what you came for let’s get into it. The […]

Don’t Be Caught ‘Gnome Alone’? (Review)

I’m only reviewing this because I’m producing the sequel, Country Roads, Take Me Gnome. It’s a road trip movie… but with gnomes. WHAT EVERYONE WANTS! Haha just…why did I watch this?? Netflix wanted to respond to all you Luke Cage and Iron Fist fans and delivery you something to keep your subscription and that’s apparently….Gnome […]

‘Christopher Robin’ a Film That Will Test How Much You Love “Nothing”

“It’s pretty much just Hook, but without the bastardization of Neverland” I don’t know about you but I think that’s one for the box cover. I think that’s the thing that Christopher Robin gets right, the adaptation of Pooh and friends just looks great. You do get a sense of that there’s respect for the […]

Netflix You Suck! I’m Going To Miss You User Reviews

If you haven’t heard the news, Netflix is removing user reviews from it’s site and I’m Grr… angry about it. No more stars and no more comments on the movie and I for one am going to miss it. There are numerous reviews on my site in which I checked the user reviews to get […]

Not a Fan – Episode #2 Killing of a Sacred Deer

Oh Yorgos Lanthimos how I want to love you, but sadly I do not. Killing of a Sacred Deer is not a horribly executed film, nor does it lack an interesting premise, so I understand if you did enjoy this film, and I’m certainly not attacking your opinion. You have ever right to like it […]

Public Domain Theater – Now Playing: Spider Baby (1964) [Video Review]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gi-FO5IIRwQ&t=333s Another boring video essay I suppose….   I want to take a small time here, though I suppose I’ll do a post on the exact day but K at the Movies has almost been a “thing?” for a whole year. So weird, I can’t believe I single handedly brought down Movie Pilot… in my […]

Friend Request (Review)

Friend Request follows the journey of me, trying to sit through a movie I regret watching. I thought this movie might be a fun laugh given that it is the dumb Facebook horror movie but it’s just not worth sitting through. I would say Bedeviled was had fun with itself, I’d even say Satanic was at […]

‘Eighth Grade’ Bo Burnham’s Directorial Debut has its charm.

I just saw Eighth Grade and it was delightful. Comedian Bo Burnham makes his directorial debut and it seems to fit the introspective material that has been the staple of his young career. Despite Burnham having a great sense of humor, I wouldn’t sell you this movie as a comedy. The film certainly has its […]

The Best Movie I’ve Seen All Year! Easter -Egg fun fills Ready Player One (Review)

Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Ready Player One is a fun adaptation that is certainly not flawless but for the target audience of younger children and video game fans this one should be a doosie. Before going into my thoughts on certain plot elements and potential spoilers I want to address some overarching points. The special […]

The County Sheriff’s Office is on Fire and The Cows are Exploding! (Review)

Today I learned that WordPress will not limit how long my title can be… interesting. With that bit of new found knowledge I came up with the original title of “The County Office is on Fire and The Cows are Exploding! What’s Going On In The Mind of Martin McDonagh Director of ‘Three Billboards Outside […]

The Magic Found Beyond Wealth: ‘The Florida Project’ (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 […]

It’s that time of year again. The Oscars! The talk around the prestigious March 4 Academy Award show is now in full effect.

The True Meaning Behind Netflix Original ‘Before I wake’

Film has this amazing intrinsic quality of capturing the imagination. Unraveling our subconscious, and exploring the beauty of interpretation. No film has reminded me of such quality than the recent Netflix addition in Before I Wake. The movie is wonderful, staring Kate Bosworth and Thomas Jane as two grieving parents who after the death of […]

Master of None, Bicycle Thieves, and The Blind Man’s Lost Dog

It has become a common theory in the world that through our long history of storytelling that a point is being reached that all the stories have already been told. The thought behind this belief mostly stems from the advancement of media literacy, recognizing skeleton story frames such as the “Hero’s Journey” and other archetypes […]

Introduction
It’s fair to call Anastasia (Don Bluth, Gary Goldman, 1997) a classic right? It’s well received, sitting at an 86% certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, and a 7.1/10 on IMDb. It holds a legacy as an Oscar nominated film and the historical feat of pioneering the “rich” history of the Fox Animation Studio… more on that later. The film has recently just become two decades old, and it hasn’t disappeared from relevancy. On the contrary, it just got adapted into a Broadway musical by the same team of Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens who earned the film its,

“Oscar nominations for Best Original Song (“Journey to the Past”) and for Best Music: Original Musical or Comedy Score” – Adam Hetrick Playbill

The film even a box-office success, earning a nearly a hundred forty million worldwide on an estimated fifty-million-dollar budget. Still, I just feel that despite the “success” of the film, this film garners the same amount of admiration as Disney’s more lackluster efforts such as Treasure Planet or Atlantis: the Lost Empire. That said why don’t we take a look and see if Anastasia has withstood the test of time.

Would You Survive?!? Circle (2015) Quick Movie Review

So I just watched Circle (2015) a film that has the great misfortune of having a name that is dangerously close to a film that stars the like of Tom Hanks and Emma Watson.

K Presents The Big Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review (Spoilers)

All right, let’s review Star Wars:The Last Jedi. I start this off by saying, I admittedly don’t have high stakes in major tent-pole blockbusters movies. I don’t really get wrapped up in the hype culture and the big hullabaloo that surrounds films like this. At the same time, I don’t really consider myself a film […]

A Small Comedy Impresses in ‘The Big Sick’

The Modern movie-making climate largely revolves around spectacle. With advancements in SFX the ability to generate grander than life visuals to captivate the masses. The Great Train Robbery (Porter, 1903) and a Trip to the Moon (Milies, 1902) are exemplary of how the moving picture has always been about creating some sort of enticement to […]
