  • Ouija Shark

    Ouija Shark

    ½

    Forget about Parasite and Uncut Gems, Ouija Shark is the cinematic masterpiece that you need to be watching in 2020. It brings together not only the greatest natural predator the world has ever seen, but also the greatest supernatural force the world has ever seen, the ouija board. Now, I know what you’re thinking, “This is just another ghost shark movie like Shark Exorcist or.. Ghost Shark!” But no, you’d be dead wrong. This work of art is drowning in…

  • Cadet Kelly

    Cadet Kelly

    ★★½

    Cadet Kelly is a masterpiece in subtext from the early 2000’s about the effects conservative ideologies have on our minds, and the conforming of sexual identity they attempt to force on us.

    I was forced to watch this on the fourth of July. I remember hating it when it came out, but my SO wanted to watch it, so here we are; 10 minutes into the film and I realize this isn’t a traditional Disney Original. There’s subtext here. The…

  • Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls

    Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls

    ★★★★

    From the start with the Cliffhanger parody to the end, in a freeze frame running away from an African tribe; When Nature Calls is just as relentless as when I was a kid watching it on VHS. This is one of my favorite comedies of all time and I don’t think it gets enough credit. There’s not much else to say about a twenty year old film that hasn’t already been said though, it’s incredible, and if you disagree you’re probably a la-who-za-her, alrighty then.

  • Staying Alive

    Staying Alive

    ★★★½

    Is there a less understood film in the history of cinema than Staying Alive?

    Sylvester Stallone directed this masterpiece, there’s a certain fire, a certain intensity that Staying Alive grabs a hold of and doesn’t let go until the credits roll, and there is a lot more going on behind the scenes than what’s shown on the surface.

    The most interesting part of the film is how Stallone was able to sexualize men far before the films of Ryan Gosling…

  • A Bug's Life

    A Bug's Life

    ★★★★

    Bernie Sanders’ favorite film and the best Pixar film, or at least A Bug’s Life has the best themes; class consciousness and socialism. The ants representing the proletariat, being forced to gather and give products to the oppressive grasshoppers, the bourgeois. Hopper explains, "Those puny little ants outnumber us 100-to-1, and if they figure that out, there goes our way of life. It’s not about food, it’s about keeping those ants in line.” I can’t think of a film to…

  • Ad Astra

    Ad Astra

    ★★★★

    It’s been awhile since a film so polarizing. People seem to either adore it or bitterly loathe it and the people who loathe it act like it murdered their family. Off the top of my head, the last film I can think of that was this polarized was Spring Breakers or Only God Forgives, and somehow Ad Astra feels very similar to these. I think the people who disliked it either wanted it to be more like Interstellar or couldn’t…
