    ★★★

    Grade: GOOD 

    There is a lot to like in Jordan Peele’s latest horror/comedy (more emphasis on horror this time): Lupita Nyong’o’s range as an actress is limitless, the musical score is an instant classic, the premise is original, and the cinematography is dynamic. 

    So why not a higher rating? In my opinion, the pacing of the film didn’t allow for the continuous build up of tension that the script was trying to achieve. The comedy, while funny, simply made the…

    Burning

    ★★★★★

    Grade: MASTERPIECE

    Burning, like all of Lee Chang-dong's work, rejects conventional genre tropes to the point where a viewer expecting a "thriller" or a "drama" might be left confused, wondering when the familiar beats will occur.

    Forget what has been said about Burning, don't worry about the genre, or what the story is about. Simply watch the movie. Get lost in the cinematography, acting, and score, all of which are tuned perfectly with each other. Watch as Jongsu tries to…

    The Innocents

    ★★★

    Grade: GOOD

    One of my biases is against movies set in Victorian era England where things were very prim and proper, especially in regards to acting which comes off as hammed up.

    The Innocents suffers from my Victorian dislikes, but my concerns were mostly swept aside by Freddie Francis' absolutely gorgeous black and white cinematography. Under the direction of Jack Clayton, the cinematography is able to create visually eerie and frightening scenes, but the sluggish pacing and my personal dislike of this style of acting hold back The Innocents from being a great film.

    ★★★★★

    Grade: MASTERPIECE

    "Alternates, you want to clean the blood off my drum-set?"

    Whiplash gets better with each viewing because multiple viewings reveal how meticulously the movie was made. From the first scene, the movie is subtly (and sometimes not so subtly) developing the characters played by Teller and Simmons. Through the perspective of the main character, Andrew Neyman, the movie establishes a supporting character, Terence Fletcher, that is better developed and more memorable than most main characters in other films.…

    Hellboy

    ★★

    Grade: BAD

    Sadly, the latest version of Hellboy does not retain any of the charm, wonderful characters, or fun of Del Toro's iteration. What remains is a husk of the former glory.

    The movie is so jam packed with different ideas and plot development that no time is spent developing any of the characters. Everyone is simply a plot device to move the film along to the next action scene, which have no excitement because the viewer is not given…
