Mother! Movie Review

All film is subjective. It’s an obvious thing to say, but a film like Mother! should come attached with a reminder of this. Darren Aronosky’s latest directorial effort will likely be one of the most divisive films of the year. However, it is also one of 2017’s most daring and powerful films. Mother! is not […]

Dunkirk, Christopher Nolan’s first film based off of a historical event premieres this weekend. This film takes us to the event in Dunkirk, a town in France, from which the film takes its title.

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 […]

The Beguiled: Movie Review

I’ll start off with this – The Beguiled is a fantastic movie, but it has no business opening up in the summer. It is a very tense and bleak film that, in my opinion, could have done very well around October when audiences are more prone to seek out these types of films. Instead, we […]

Baby Driver: Movie Review

Skrrt! Baby Driver is an absolute adrenaline rush, take a Lyft to see this or play Mario Kart afterward because it’ll leave you wanting tear up the road. I absolutely loved Edgar Wright’s (Hot Fuzz, Scott Pilgrim) latest film as it turned out to deliver not only the thrilling caper flick I expected, but also […]

All Eyez On Me: Movie Review

The problem with a life that shines bright and burns out too soon is that you know it doesn’t end well. Tupac shone brighter than most during his far-too-short life and prolific career. The man was larger than life, and his life was stranger than fiction. All Eyez on Me tries to shine the slain […]

The Book of Henry: Movie Review

Jurassic World and Star Wars: Episode IX director, Colin Trevorrow, brings us a heartwarming drama. The Book of Henry stars Naomi Watts as Susan Carpenter, a struggling single mother, who discovers her oldest son’s plot to rescue the girl next door from her abusive stepfather. Despite the thriller elements the premise has, the film had […]

The Hero: Movie Review

Jet Li starred in 2002’s Hero, a high-flying martial arts movie. 2017’s The Hero, starring Sam Elliott, is a very different kind of movie. No reboot here. In this decidedly non-martial arts movie (I counted exactly zero karate chops), Lee Hayden (Sam Elliott) is an aging actor who earned his fame in Westerns, but whose […]

My Cousin Rachel: Movie Review

So going into My Cousin Rachel I was expecting a typical period piece where the plot was as predictable as the character development. I hadn’t really heard anything about this film up until watching it, doesn’t seem like it was highly publicized. What we end up getting is a piece that leaves you questioning the end. […]

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 […]
