    “Inside Llewyn Davis” is one of my favorite Coen Brothers films. It tells the story of a young folk singer named Llewyn Davis in New York in the early 60s. Directly before Bob Dylan's first record and the great American folk revival. Llewyn was previously in a folk duo, before his partner committed suicide by jumping off the George Washington Bridge. He now has to attempt to make it on his own, and it’s more than difficult.

    The Last of the Mohicans

    ★★★½

    I’ve been wanting to see this movie for a while now, and I finally got a chance to. I love a few of Michael Mann’s films and more than a few of Daniel Day Lewis’. However, the acting in this movie feels like a play. It makes it really hard to get into the characters, which sucks because it’s a romance story. The dialogue is fine but the performances are, for the most part, really slow and not to the…

    Yeah guys, it’s still one of the best movies ever made.

    The Irishman

    ★★★★★

    Alright, this is my 4th time seeing this masterwork of a film by Martin Scorsese. I’d be the first one to tell you, it’s not perfect. However, I can’t deny ”the Irishman” a perfect rating. The emotion and themes are so strong and executed flawlessly. It’s truly a rival to Scorsese’s other masterful criminal corruption films, like Goodfellas, Casino and the Wolf of Wall Street.

    There are some moments when characters don’t look their age, but my favorite films of…

    We were somewhere around Barstow on the edge of the desert, when the drugs began to take hold…” - Hunter S. Thompson

    Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas” (1998) is a savage, experimental and psychedelic journey to the heart of the American dream. Johnny Depp plays the famous journalist Hunter S. Thompson, under the made-up alias: Raoul Duke. The film is very interwoven with the novel “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas”, written by Hunter S. Thompson while journeying through…

    Evangelion: Death (True)²

    This is a pointless film. They tried to jam thirteen hours of the Neon Genesis Evangelion story into a one hour movie and it really doesn’t work. The pacing is just awful and doesn’t give you a second to think. Also, I don’t know why they did it, but they took the original fullscreen aspect ratio and zoomed in to make it widescreen, which is the worst thing you can do. It cuts off 20% of the movie.

    They could’ve…

    Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance

    ★★★★½

    “Evangelion 2.0” (or 2.22) was insanely brilliant. This film alone takes the whole story of Neon Genesis Evangelion in a new direction. The art style, battle sequences and animation are not only improved upon from the original show, but from the previous film. The English dub is also substantially better quality. It is loosely based on episodes from the show, however many elements of the story are quite different and, I’d say, a lot better.

    I’m amazed at how they improved…

    Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone

    ★★★★

    Astounding, aside from the atrocious English dub. However, I can’t fault it for that, it’s originally Japanese. Every little bit of expression and artwork has been drastically improved from the original series. The only issues I have are slight nit-picks; besides that it’s an incredible experience for those invested in the Neon Genesis Evangelion tv and movie series’ and those who aren’t.

    We may be through with the past, but the past is not through with us!” - Quiz Kid Donnie Smith

    This is my 2nd time seeing Paul Thomas Anderson’s amazing film “Magnolia”. If it wasn’t so long, I would’ve watched it again sooner. Upon rewatch, I think it’s safe to say it’s one of my favorite films ever made.

    Magnolia takes place in the San Fernando Valley in North California and follows the lives of eight different people dealing with…

    ★★★★★

    This is the movie to end all movies. “Fat Albert” (2004) may be the the most influential, renegade and perfectly created film ever conceived. The acting and cinematography were not only astonishing, but mesmerizing. The film delves deep into meaning of all creation and the fact that it was made is all but proof that God exists. It is a much watch to, not only fans of Fat Albert, but to anyone interested in the fine art of filmmaking.

    Okay, I’m just going to say it, I love this movie. “The House That Jack Built” may be one of the most polarizing films I’ve ever seen. You’ll either be disgusted and feel pandered to or you’ll see this as the new “American Psycho”. I love American Psycho, and while this film is quite different, it has many things in common with American Psycho, as well as Dexter. However, it’s clear there’s something deeper to this film than just the…
