    Palm Springs

    ★★★★

    It's no secret that the concept at the core of Palm Springs has been done no less than a million times before and with varying degrees of success to the point where one knows what to expect when going in to see a time travel film. However, dismissing the film for this would be a sore mistake for anyone, who would ultimately be missing out on what happens to be one of the most entertaining films of the year, anchored…

    Army of Darkness

    ★★★½

    Doubling down on the groovy and less so on the horror, Army of Darkness finds Sam Raimi at arguably his most self-indulgent hour yet. Whereas the film's predecessors had a steady blend of horror and comedy, Army of Darkness is awash from start to finish in an almost shocking sense of imaginative freedom and bonkers creativity offered by it's director's penchant for knowing precisely what it's aiming for and that it does. With it's decidedly more adventurous tone and swashbuckling…

    Seventh Son

    Just another in a long line of dull and unimaginative fantasies brimming with nothing but equally lackluster characters, poor performances, and an endless array of poorly rendered CGI creatures to round out the scene. It certainly doesn't help that the narrative is thoroughly disinterested in anything regarding the conflict in favor of a boring adventure with little motivation to it. It says a lot about the film when even the actors seem genuinely disinterested - Jeff Bridges is basically "Tired…

    Evil Dead II

    ★★★★½

    Bloodier, wackier, and by all accounts, more insane than the first in every way possible, Evil Dead II manages to boldly expand its predecessor in all the right ways while still maintaining that unashamed sense of campy good humor and frightful scares that make it so endearing. In many ways, its basically the first one - mostly through its narrative which on paper, isn't anything groundbreaking, but it's what Sam Raimi is able to do with the material that ultimately…

    "What are the chances you're not coming back? Those kids, they don't have a father anymore! So you're gonna sit the boys down, and prepare them for the fact that you might never come home!"

    Damien Chazelle's more intimate and grounded perspective, backed by exceptional performances both elevate this important look back at a pivotal moment in history, resulting in a dramatically soaring experience that flies high above the clouds, much like it's real-life hero.

    P.S.: This is the biggest budgeted indie film, besides Blade Runner 2049 that I've ever seen.

    Boring? No
    Does it drag? No
    I don't know what film those people who call this masterpiece overrated saw but this film definitely gets better the more you rewatch it and watching it with people who haven't seen it before is even better
