Marshall: Movie Review

I love to learn about history through film. I know that films can take liberties when it comes to true events, but it encourages me to read about the actual people nonetheless. Marshall does just that for me. This film depicts an early case of Thurgood Marshall before he becomes the first African American Supreme […]

Romance Tropes: The Folly of Filmmaking

Romance. There are very few films these days that don’t at least incorporate a love story within their cast of characters.  Regardless if it’s needed or not, the romance is there. Romantic comedies and dramas have been popular for as long as film has been around. Definitely longer if you count novels and plays. So […]

Independent Filmmakers and the Internet

A few days ago, I realized something I hadn’t thought of before. The hype around upcoming movies is different in recent years than it was twenty years ago. The direct cause of that, I believe, is the online landscape. When I was I kid, I saw trailers for movies when I went to the theater […]

Victoria and Abdul Movie Review

It’s a sad fact that there aren’t enough stories about friendship. There are more stories about forbidden love than there is about the strong bond of friendship. Thankfully, that’s exactly what Victoria and Abdul is about. The film tells the story of Queen Victoria’s unlikely friendship with an Indian servant named Abdul Karim during the […]

American Made: Movie Review

I had no idea what to expect when I went to go see American Made. All I knew was that Tom Cruise was the lead in yet another film. But I was pleasantly surprised. American Made tells the story of a TWA pilot named Barry Seal who is recruited by the CIA to provide intel […]

The Evolution Of Cinematic Television: The Golden Era Is Far From Over

I didn’t board the Game of Thrones train until about a couple of years ago. By then, I already came across a few spoilers because of how incredibly popular this series is. That didn’t stop me from watching though. The first thought that came to mind when I started to watch the show was how […]

From Small Screen to The Big Screen: Game to Film Adaptations

Game to Film Adaptations – From Small Screen to The Big Screen: My first video game I ever played was Pokémon on the first PlayStation. I apologize that I can’t remember the specific game, but I remember my dad got it for me because I loved the show. Games have been a part of my […]

Wind River: Movie Review

I let myself go into Wind River with very little expectations. I knew that the director and writer, Taylor Sheridan, wrote Sicario so I had hope that the story would be just as well constructed. Other than that, I allowed myself to be surprised by the film. Jeremey Renner stars as Cory Lambert, a US […]

Kidnap: Movie Review

I was expecting this film to be intense, but I didn’t realize that I would be holding my tongue back at the screen. Kidnap is directed by Luis Prieto and stars Halle Berry as Karla Dyson, a single mother. Berry’s character works at a diner to support her six year old son, Frankie played by […]

Lady Macbeth: Movie Review

If you saw the title of this film and thought this was a rendition of the Shakespeare play then you’re just as wrong as I was. It’s darker than that.  Lady Macbeth tells the story about a young woman stuck in a loveless marriage in 1865 in rural England. She soon finds herself in a […]

Women’s Rise to Film

If anyone were to ask me what my favorite Disney princess was, I would answer Pocahontas. As a child, I would jump off the couch just as Pocahontas would jump off the waterfall in the movie. She was an example of what a strong woman was to me and I appreciate that. Unfortunately, there aren’t […]

From Page to Screen: Book to Film Adaptations

As an avid book reader, I’ve always enjoyed going to see movies based off of my favorite novels. It’s bit of a gamble though. On the one hand, I’ll enjoy the movie and accept the inevitable changes that had to happen. On the other, the movie will make absolutely no sense and I sit in […]
