  • All the President's Men

    All the President's Men

    The biggest political scandal of the 20th century is documented in how it was brought to light, by the two daring, risk-taking, investigative journalists, who took on the higher powers.

    "All the President's Men" details the true story of how two journalists uncovered Nixon's famous Watergate scandal and brought it to the publics attention. Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman play Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein respectively, as they challenge their bosses, their leaders and the public in risking their careers…

  • Samson

    Samson

    From famed Polish director Andrzej Wajda the director "Ashes and Diamonds", "A Generation" and "Kanal" considered his 'war trilogy. "Samson" is yet another World War 2 film which I greatly enjoyed just as much and focuses more on the mistreatment of the Jewish.

    The plot is a lot more subversive than his previous films, and contains stark black and white cinematography and craftily positioned cameras. One scene that stuck out to me is in which the Nazis are boarding up…

  • Le Bonheur

    Le Bonheur

    "Le Bonheur" hehehe

    Agnes Varda's third film came out only three years after "Cleo from 5 to 7" but isn't talked about nearly as much. Many have seemed to have either forgotten it or care little for it, but I can't understand why.

    "Le Bonheur" introduces us to the idyllic life of Francois and his family, consisting of his lovely wife and two children. At first I thought the film was going to be a vacation spot of a loving…

  • Rebels of the Neon God

    Rebels of the Neon God

    One of the most intriguing films I've seen in the past few weeks. What at first seemed like it was another typical Taiwanese film about wayward youth, become something much more profound and wondrous. "Rebels of the Neon God" follows a reserved but unfulfilled boy as he seeks out revenge on the kid who smashed his father's car mirror.

    Sounds a little ridiculous but our protagonist, Hsiao Kang has quite a few motivations for his actions. For starters he has…

  • Stranger Than Paradise

    Stranger Than Paradise

    This was my first Jim Jarmusch movie I ever saw, and despite the fact that he is now one of my favorite directors, I didn't like this film so much when I first saw it, and it made my subsequent viewings of Jarmusch hard to get into. I certainly appreciated him and parts of this film in some way, but I just didn't enjoy it all that much. However after I started to love Jarmusch, even a movie like "The…

  • A Hidden Life

    A Hidden Life

    ★★★★

    True strength is kindness and empathy. True Bravery is doing what you know is right.

  • Take the Money and Run

    Take the Money and Run

    My first Woody Allen feature I ever saw! Hearing about how Woody loved Groucho Marx and Charlie Chaplin, I had to see what kind of comedies this man could make, and wasn't disappointed in the slightest! From odd, non-sequitar jokes, to random slapstick, visual gags, combined with sharp wit and satirical jabs, "Take the Money and Run" was a great introduction for me into Allen's film and his overall style.

    The film tells the story of the worst criminal in…

  • Joker

    Joker

    ★★★★

    I used to live in a society, then I saw Joker. Now I don't

  • El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie

    El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie

    My biggest issue is that Skinny P said bitch more than Jesse.

    I don't think there's anything I can say about the monumental show "Breaking Bad" that hasn't already been said. It's considered one of the greatest series ever made and may even just be the greatest of the decade (and the later part of the last decade)! The series managed to capture the nerves and anticipation of Americans all over the nation, from the average Joe, to the snobbiest…

  • Sleuth

    Sleuth

    Now that's more like it!

    After mistakenly watching the disappointing remake first, I soon sought out the original version that many had praised. Even better, I ended up watching this one with my Dad and we both had a good time! His tastes are a little different than mine, so I was a little worried what he might think but he really enjoyed himself as did I!

    "Sleuth" is best described as a thriller comedy, the latter genre being completely…

  • Dracula

    Dracula

    I remember when I first saw this when I was younger, I wasn't all that into the movie. I'm not entirely sure why, maybe I was too young to be appreciate it, but now I want to go back in time and slap myself, because this is the best "Dracula" adaptation we have ever gotten! I love Tod Browning's version starring Bela Lugosi, but Coppola's 1992 retelling, stays faithful to the novel and sheds some light on the history, and…

  • Vagabond

    Vagabond

    I love character studies! Characters are such a crucial part of any story, and while there's many different kinds of films, I've always been drawn to character studies as some of my favorites! "Vagabond" offers us a different kind of character study, as while other films like 8 1/2 or Taxi Driver take an internal journey in which we'd be unable to venture to on our own, "Vagabond" is an impartial glimpse into the life of a wandering homeless girl,…
