  • M*A*S*H

    M*A*S*H

    M*A*S*H? More like, T*R*A*S*H am I right?!

    So you may have noticed a lot of positive reviews coming from me lately, and that’s mostly to make up for my contentious, contrarian reviews I posted before all those. To sort of balance everything out and not make it seem like I’m some kind edgelord just throwing out bait. But there’s one movie I watched recently that I have to let out: Mash. Oh man, after I watched this, I just had…

  • Marketa Lazarová

    Marketa Lazarová

    ★★★★★

    So I’ve been discovering some Czech New Wave films, which is the best thing I’ve done in a long time! Most of the films I’ve seen have been added to my favorite movies list, and are often variations of strange films blended with magnificent cinematography, and undertones of comedy and social commentary. Marketa Lazarova is the farthest from these types of films, however, I learned two things from this film:

    1. Marketa Lazarova is the greatest Czech film ever made!…

  • The Deer Hunter

    The Deer Hunter

    "The Deer Hunter" is a film that's come under many debates ranging from critical status to content. Some may not care for this film and to be honest I understand, but why? Is this film overrated, or is it an Anti-war classic?

    Let's get the biggest problem of the film out of the way, and the first thing you'll encounter, and that's the beginning. And by the beginning, I don't just mean the opening 5 or 10 minutes I mean…

    Twelve Angry Men: Acceptance of the Unfamiliar

    Cinema is Art, but what is art? Art to me is a reflection of life. Not an exact replica, but rather a representation of it. A slight shift in strict normality for the sake of showing a viewpoint of life through the artist’s perspective. In film, we are often given stories and some of the best stories to me are the ones in which average people are put in unfamiliar situations. A conflict…

  • Scanners

    Scanners

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

    Oh well this doesn't seem excessive in any kind of way. This film looks like it's going to be a subtle, eerie kind of ...(reaches 7 minute mark) ... nevermind...

    So, do people like this movie? Like they really liked it? I know David Cronenberg can be a divisive director at times, but seriously this movie was just flat out stupid. I thought I would really like David Cronenberg and his style, but as I trek through his filmography I'm…

  • La Pointe-Courte

    La Pointe-Courte

    ★★★★★

    From the Queen of Cinema, Agnes Varda, comes her intimate, simplistic, yet grandiose film "La Pointe-Courte". The only reason I don't say it's Varda's masterpiece is because I know that will start a debate and I'm not even entirely sure myself if I like this, "Cleo from 5 to 7" or "Vagabond" more. But this film is just perfectly beautiful.

    "La Pointe-Courte" doesn't have a plot, but it doesn't need to. We're so much more engaged in the setting, and…

  • Halloween

    Halloween

    This Holiday, look forward to something really frightening; I’ve conjured up the most evil heinous crime of the season! I hate Halloween! Mwuahahahahahahahahaha! Seriously this movie sucks.

    Yeah, I’m going to be that guy again. This is one I’ve been wanting to get off my chest since I first saw it years ago when I was still in school, and I guess Halloween seemed like the right time to get it out so I waited patiently. Patiently waited for my…

  • Your Name.

    Your Name.

    ★★★★½

    My 2000th film and I’m proud of it! What makes this experience more special, was I watched it with my brother and sister. They’re not into the long, dull, foreign films I often watch but sat with me to check it out. After the film the both enthusiastically told me how much they loved “Your Name”. I think they even liked it more than me. Not to say I didn’t love it, because I absolutely did, but they kept telling…

  • The Turin Horse

    The Turin Horse

    I swear dude, the horse is taller than the stable doorway but walks under anyway… I’ve watched this part ten times already… How does it walk under… I’m tripping out.

    Hey kids, you know that famous incident with Friedrich Nietzsche in which he became delirious and tried to stop a cabbie from whipping a horse and spent the next nine years of life living in insanity? Haven’t you always wondered about the life of the horse? Don’t pretend like you…

  • Dazed and Confused

    Dazed and Confused

    "That's what I love about these high school girls. I get older, they stay the same age" And thus, the most famous line about statutory rape in cinema was uttered with no controversy whatsoever.

    As you can guess I don't care for this film much, but it's a bit more of a personal reason. I just don't mesh with these films for some reason. But the more I thought about, the more I realized that maybe "Dazed and Confused" isn't…

  • Hamlet

    Hamlet

    ★★★★½

    I realized this turned more into a review of the play itself rather than this film adaptation of “Hamlet”, but, Hamlet is Hamlet, and the film stays true to the themes and unabridged texts so what’s the difference? Besides, I love Hamlet!

    I believe I’ve mentioned before of my undying love for Shakespeare. There’s a strong reason why his work is still studied and performed to this day and that is that he is still one of the greatest writers…

  • Pan

    Pan

    I had no interest in seeing this movie at all. But then I found out that it featured Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily! One of my favorite actresses and crushes fulfilling the role of one of my earliest crushes? It's a fantasy come true. Because I'm not Brat Pitt, I'll spare you the weird stories and get on with the review.

    Pan is pretty basic, effortless, and generic film as you could possibly think. Well, okay, maybe not that much.…
