    The Dark Knight

    ★★★★★

    “Do you want to know why I use a knife? Guns are too quick. You can't savor all the... little emotions. In... you see, in their last moments, people show you who they really are. So in a way, I know your friends better than you ever did. Would you like to know which of them were cowards?” -The Joker. 


    Welcome to my in depth spoiler filled review for The Dark Knight, I know I’ve done a few reviews for…

    Nightcrawler

    Welcome to my new essay,
    The Analysis of the Antagonist. A study of what makes a good villain as well a bad one, and ways the morality of the antagonist can change, making for a stronger and ultimately better villain. Note that this is not another review for Nightcrawler (just in case you were wondering Mas) and that this essay will contain major spoilers for films such as Nightcrawler, The Dark Knight, and Black Panther. Enjoy!

    Doctor Strange

    ★★★★

    Dr. Stephen Strange: I'm not ready. 
    The Ancient One: No one ever is. We don't get to choose our time. Death is what gives life meaning. To know your days are numbered. Your time is short. You'd think after all this time, I'd be ready. But look at me. Stretching one moment out into a thousand... just so that I can watch the snow.

    Doctor Strange is a film that does not deserve near as much of the hate it…

    Captain America: The First Avenger

    ★★★

    “The serum amplifies everything that is inside, so good becomes great; bad becomes worse. This is why you were chosen. Because the strong man who has known power all his life, may lose respect for that power, but a weak man knows the value of strength, and knows... compassion.” 
     -Abraham Erskine. 

    This is a film that since it’s release almost eight years ago has never really resonated with me as much as I would have liked it to due to…

    The Goonies

    ★★★★

    “Don't you realize? The next time you see sky, it'll be over another town. The next time you take a test, it'll be in some other school. Our parents, they want the best of stuff for us. But right now, they got to do what's right for them. Because it's their time. Their time! Up there! Down here, it's our time. It's our time down here. That's all over the second we ride up Troy's bucket.” 
    -Mikey.

    Whiplash

    ★★★★★

    “Parker's a young kid, pretty good on the sax. Gets up to play at a cutting session, and he fucks it up. And Jones nearly decapitates him for it. And he's laughed off-stage. Cries himself to sleep that night, but the next morning, what does he do? He practices. And he practices and he practices with one goal in mind, never to be laughed at again. And a year later, he goes back to the Reno and he steps up…
