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 […]

The Foreigner: Movie Review

Growing up in my family, I was from an early age bombarded with any and all Jackie Chan films. During my days of watching Spice World on repeat, I was gifted The Legend of the Drunken Master and I’ve been a fan ever since. It’s been awhile since we’ve seen Mr. Chan back in action […]

Happy Death Day: Movie Review

In the nearly 25 years since the release of Groundhog Day, starring the incomparable Bill Murray, time loops have become a common movie device, for better or worse. That 1993 comedy employed the device so famously as to hijack the holiday after which it was named. When someone says “Groundhog Day,” the idea of reliving […]

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 […]

IT: Movie Review

There’s something special about youthful imagination. The same imagination that inspires childhood aspirations also conjures monsters and boogeymen. The cruel twist is dreaming of one day becoming an astronaut is as fun as believing in monsters is terrifying. Out of this contradiction, we get It, the latest Stephen King novel to get a big-screen adaptation. […]
