    ★★★★★

    "I used to hate the water."
    "I can't imagine why."

    This truly feels daunting to review. As I'm typing this, I have no idea how long or short this is going to be, so just bear with me. It's not even that I'm intimidated by the movie itself. It's more about how much this movie means to me specifically. I've talked about it before on here, but here's a refresher. From my youth, previous to when I went to a…

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

    (Before we get into this, a disclaimer. This is not meant to discredit anyone that has legitimate criticisms or truthfully disliked what’s presented. This is an in-depth analysis based on my personal takeaways mixed with takeaways I have seen from separate analyses which I agree with. Everyone is equally entitled to an opinion so long as they have enough to be able to back up said opinion. Even if you disagree with what I have to say, I still appreciate…

    The Mothman Prophecies

    ★★★★

    Wake up, number thirty-seven.

    Zodiac meets Session 9, with sprinkles of that Lost Tapes episode about Mothman. (I will use any and every excuse to reference and recommend that show.) Holding onto the belief that if tragedy has to happen, if we all have to lose people and things in our lives, if we could just know when it's going to happen, maybe that would make it all a little easier to deal with. I'm not sure you're going to…

    Nails

    ★★★

    I have found a method.

    There's low-budget filmmaking, there's no-budget filmmaking, and then there's whatever the hell this short is. I have felt no motivation at all today to work on a final project for one of my classes, so after just messing around on my phone for most of the day up to now, gave this a watch looking to get a boost of energy. However "good" you can feel after watching a short film about hitman hammering nails…

    Borat Subsequent Moviefilm

    ★★★½

    Clowns to the left of me
    Jokers to the right
    Here I am
    Stuck in the middle with you

    Bang bang, skeet skeet, high five, very nice, my wife! Alright, I got all that out of the way. After watching the first Borat awhile ago, I remember thinking that there's no way you could make a new film with the character today. Humor and the world in general I thought had moved on too much for Sasha Baron Cohen's goofy,…

  • Apostle

    Apostle

    ★★★★

    Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

    First Reformed: "I'm going to be the most atmospheric, disturbing, and enthralling exploration of faith in 2018!"

    Apostle: "Hold my beer."

    One of my most anticipated films of the year did not disappoint at all. Gareth Evans trades in claustrophobic fisticuffs spectacle for grand-scale Gothic horror, and proves he can do both almost equally well. Apostle is the film equivalent of nails on…
