    First Man - Film Essay

Because this is Armstrong’s story, we are given an in-depth look of what his life was like outside of NASA; his home, his family, and his friends.

    The Curse of Los Jump Scares

    This is literally just like The Nun from last year. Although I think The Nun is probably a bit better. 
    This movie definitely has an interesting premise. But that whole premise is ruined with cheap jump scares, these demon movie cliches, and just bad writing. 
    I would say this film is pretty fast paced, but that’s because once it hits its third act, it drags on forever. And once the third act starts, they…

    Personally, this movie suffers from its runtime. 90 minutes to develop this love story and the characters just didn’t cut it. I don’t even think I remember any names. And the cuts and time jumps were also really odd. Right when I’m intrigued, nope just cut it there and skip a year that’s fine.


    However, as far as 2018 B&W foreign-language films go, this one ends up on top.

    I honestly dislike ‘This Is America’ but the way they incorporated it into this was cool.
    At least this introduced me to ‘Summertime Magic.’

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The more and more I watch horror films, the more I don’t end up caring for any of them. 

    That being said, I honestly didn’t care about the first two acts of this film because of the typical horror elements and cliches. It reminded me a little of The Strangers. The third act is where this film starts to shine. It had me thinking back to previous scenes and clues leading up. (I think Jordan Peele realised how much people…

    ★★

    *Disclaimer: I have not read the book and haven’t seen the previous film in forever. 

    If you have seen 1 of the 1000 trailers they busted out for this film, then you have pretty much seen the whole movie. 
    But I’m sure most people are familiar with the story and concept of Pet Semetary. And this film doesn’t really bring anything new to the table. In fact, it leaves out a lot of the mythology and explanations. It simply glosses…
