Dunkirk Movie Trailer & Response

One of my most anticipated movies of this year, for a multitude of reasons, Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk has now provided audiences with its second preview. The scope of Nolan’s first foray into a war film will, per usual Nolan, be epic. Just from the score accompanying the first trailer, you feel stranded alongside the soldiers […]

Gifted Movie Review

It was made very clear to me ridiculously ahead of time by my Chris Evans obsessed little cousin that I must do everything in my power, which is not much, to ensure I was assigned this film. Fortunately for me, once I saw the heartwarming preview, I was sold on my forced fate. Director Marc […]

Life: Movie Review

Once again, I subjected myself to a space thriller as my love for sci-fi outweighed my fear of anything and everything outside of our atmosphere. Luckily, like Arrival, Life pleasantly terrified me. While you can expect some of the typical devices of films of this kind, writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Deadpool), along with […]

Kong: Skull Island Movie Review

Kong: Skull Island is a continuation of the Monster-verse epic Godzilla, and a predecessor to the planned King Kong vs Godzilla rumored to be coming up for 2020. Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, was a surprising choice for the film since to me he is known for the coming of age indie flick Kings of Summer. Taking […]

Logan Movie Review

The X-Men universe is one that has lots to offer, and the best use of that has come to fruition in the final chapter of the Wolverine trilogy, Logan. In Hugh Jackman’s 10th incarnation of the tortured and seemingly immortal character, he is broken down even more than we’ve ever seen. Director James Mangold, who […]

Bad Hombres Invade Hollywood

This article has been on the back of my mind for the past few years, and the lonely title and blank page on my laptop for a week past its due date (sorry boss). I’ve wanted to discuss the contributions and successes of Mexican directors as the subject is very near and dear to my […]

A Dog’s Purpose: Review & Response

A Dog’s Purpose has had the misfortune of being pummeled with negative press before the film has even seen the light of day, be it by reviewers or audiences. As a known crazy dog lady you can see my take on the controversy underneath my review of the film. Bruce Cameron’s best seller has been […]

Fences Movie Review

Fences Movie review: Denzel Washington takes on mounting Fences from the stage to the screen and serves not only as its lead but as its director. In Denzel Washington’s third directorial feature, he tackles an emotional and significant American story adapted from August Wilson’s play by the same name. Washington reprises his former Broadway role […]

La La Land: Movie Review

Go. See. This. Film. La La Land has been one of the most hyped and raved about films this season, and for good reason. It is an absolutely epic romantic and gut wrenching musical, but not the kind you’re used to. The film does contain some typical aspects of classic musicals and love stories, but […]

Manchester by the Sea: Movie Review

  Manchester by the Sea is honest filmmaking at its best. Every scene in this film could be a snippet taken from the life of any family experiencing grief or reeling from tragedy. Writer/Director Kenneth Lonergan created a true portrait of a quintessentially New England life, or what I assume that life to be like, […]
