    "Also the ancient Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu once said, 'What the caterpillar calls the end, the rest of the world calls a butterfly.'"

    I have always had a deep love and appreciation for movies for many years. Whether they have helped me heal from the pain of life or have entertained me through laughter or music, cinema has been there for me whenever I have needed it most.

    But the truth is, cinema is not what it used to be.…

    VIDEO VERSION-- COMING SOON

    "I'm Just Afraid That If I Died Today My Life Would Have Amounted To Nothing."

    For years, I never viewed myself equally to my peers, just like 22 never thought she was valuable. There was always someone more talented that I felt deserved what I had been given. I always felt like I was falling short of my high-minded ambitions, and like most of us today, these feelings quickly turned destructive. I turned into a more…

    "Whatever his link is to our past, it's pulled us all back here. And I won't sleep until he's in the ground."

    The horror genre has had a long evolution since its early creature feature and Hitchcock days. Whether practical effects have been improved in unique ways through prosthetics and CGI or storytelling itself has become more elevated regarding themes or style, there will always be critics who advocate for the advancement of such material. However, it is important to…

    Uncut Gems

    ★★★

    A “cut above”

    While Uncut Gems is mostly perfect, I still had a few issues with it. The pacing towards the middle, subtle humor, and abrupt ending, pull the film down to a degree. There’s also no clear messages, which made me wonder what the film’s true intent was. Still The Safdie Brothers and Ronald Bronstein have created something so jarring (in a good way) that it must be seen to be believed. The filmmaking combined with Adam Sandler’s performance…

    1917

    ★★★★

    “A time to remember”

    Other than the lack of violence and character development throughout most of 1917, it is truly a masterpiece. Like many war films I’ve seen, we don’t get much background for the central protagonists. Yet somehow, I still found myself concerned for them here. Most of that has to do with the “one shot” editing/ cinematography work helmed by Lee Smith and Roger Deakins, respectively. I felt like I was apart of the war itself, especially this…
