Growing up with both the Disney Renaissance and Revival Era of Disney Animation has provided a slew of magical memories and endless inspiration. With every new release, my family and I would go to our local theatre which has sadly closed and spend an afternoon lost in a world of wonder with a deeply moving … Continue reading ‘Encanto’ Beautifully Revives The Magic of Disney.
In a time where Spider-Man is at his most saturated with multiple versions taking up the mantle all at once, it's a genuine treat to look back on past iterations and examine them through a new lens. With 'Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse' and especially 'Spider-Man: No Way Home', grief seems to be a central theme … Continue reading ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ Perfectly Encapsulates Peter Parker’s Tragedy.
It is December 15th, 2021 and it has been a few hours since I experienced 'Spider-Man: No Way Home'. Chances are I will publish this at a later date purely for chronological reasons but these are my actual first impressions of the movie without spoilers. There will be a spoiler extravaganza later on in the … Continue reading ‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’: First Impressions! (NO SPOILERS)
As someone who just turned twenty, three weeks ago to be exact, and is feeling as lost as a child in a supermarket, this movie genuinely couldn't have come at a better time. Lin-Manuel Miranda's directorial debut, 'tick, tick... BOOM!' showcases the tragically short but magically inspiring life of Jonathan Larson. A man with the … Continue reading ‘tick, tick… BOOM!’ Couldn’t Have Come At A Better Time… (For Me!)
Just like its two contrasting leads, Edgar Wright's 'Last Night in Soho' leaves you with two polarizing opinions. It's the type of movie that feels like it should be remembered fondly and to a certain extent does but it's also deeply flawed, so much so that it gets in the way of this becoming a … Continue reading Nothing Can Save ‘Last Night in Soho’ From Its Baffling Ending.
Starting off this review by stating the obvious, I have not read 'Dune' nor do I have any intention of doing so. No disrespect to Frank Herbert or this movie but if I wanted to engage with something that made me feel stupid, I would've gone back to math class. A Denis Villeneuve blockbuster has … Continue reading Denis Villeneuve’s ‘Dune’ Should’ve Been A Miniseries, Change My Mind.
It is Tuesday, October 31st, 1978. As Halloween night bounds the small town of Haddonfield with tragedy, Michael Myers lurks the empty suburban streets to find his way back to his childhood home. Despite the carved pumpkins and ghoulish costumes, nothing sends a chill down Haddonfield's spine like the news of the babysitter murders that … Continue reading ‘Halloween Kills’: A Story Of Rage, Violence and Legacy.
Three years ago, I made the decision to watch 'A Star Is Born' over 'Venom' on their opening weekend. As I sat down to watch both 'Venom' movies this year, I realize I made the right choice. Three hours I will never get back, all for the satisfaction of being in the comic-book movie loop. … Continue reading ‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ Is Ultimately Non-Symbiotic.
Working in a movie theatre this past summer has proven to be quite an interesting experience. Not only am I the only guy who genuinely gets excited when new posters are put up but I'm also invested in how movies are essentially brought to the public. It's so funny too because I would've given anything … Continue reading my job cost me the ‘No Time To Die’ ending | storytime
As horror icons get resurrected through modern folklore or as we like to call them; soft reboots, we find ourselves asking whether or not it's necessary. In our current political climate, a new, updated retelling of 'Candyman' makes absolute sense especially with new and exciting Black voices in the horror genre. With Nia DaCosta directing … Continue reading ‘Candyman’: An Incomplete Experience.
