  • 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…

  • Believer

    Believer

    ★★★½

    I’m a great admirer of South Korean films, probably one of my favorite countries in cinema, so I thought I would give “Believer” a shot. Haven’t heard much talk on it, and didn’t even know what it was about, (finding out it’s actually a remake of the film “Drug War”) but I came out enjoying myself for the most part, but having some flaws with the story.

    “Believer” is for the most part, a typical crime, action, thriller revolving around…

  • Gummo

    Gummo

    Getting really sick of searching for this movie and having that abysmal song pop up instead.

    Wow, what complete utter trash… and it was good! It was once said of director Paul Verhoeven that he seems to ride the fine line of cinema between art and trash. I think the same can be said about Harmony Korine or specifically his cult favorite film “Gummo”. But even more so, Korine has seemed to blend both styles into one for this film,…

  • The Limits of Control

    The Limits of Control

    Is this a bad movie? No Way!

    Is this an okay movie? Eh, I can see that.

    Is it a great movie? It’s!... Not amazing, but it’s pretty damn good.

    Jim Jarmusch’s “The Limits of Control” was not a big success upon its release and is considered by some to be his weakest film. I understand how this might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but this is not a bad film in my opinion! And luckily film fans across…

  • Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie

    Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie

    It finally happened! I think I can die satisfied now. No, probably not.

    I meant to review this sooner but better late then never, even if it's six months later. Anyway, for those who may not be familiar with "Hey Arnold" it was a show that aired on Nickelodeon in the late 90's and early 2000's and is one of my favorite shows of all time. To some that may sound weird, but I can't help loving this show. Not…

  • Paisan

    Paisan

    Roberto Rossellini's second film in his war trilogy, is sadly my least favorite of them all. I fairly enjoyed it, but putting my personal tastes aside, I feel like this is no higher than a 5/10 movie. After I viewed this, I discovered that this is a pretty popular film, and was even more successful upon it's release than "Rome, Open City" was. So hopefully I'm not offending anyone, because I do like it, but there isn't anything great about…

  • Walk the Line

    Walk the Line

    I'm a huge Johnny Cash fan, so naturally it was about time I watched his biopic "Walk the Line", and it was pretty good. It's far from perfect, and I don't think is the best film we could've got about The King of Country, but I think it exceeded in more parts than it failed. I don't even consider myself a country music fan, but Johnny Cash is without a doubt one of the greatest musicians of all time!

    Anyway…
