    ★★★★½

    What am I even supposed to say…
    I know I’m not good enough to articulate the impact this beautiful piece of historic cinema holds, but something inside me is screaming telling me I have to, for those 50 people that read what this random 18 year old writes (thank you by the way).

    I see many comparisons to horror movies like Se7en and Saw but personally I see it more like Taxi Driver, it could practically be the sequel to it.…

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★★½

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: character regression is not character development.


    This movie was honestly just underwhelming and shallow. Everything the fans theorized would happen happened, but that was pretty much it. They used character development to make up for their basic and honestly boring plot-line, but neither character needed much development especially since their shows. But that’s where lazy writing comes in, they use that dirty little trick of character regression. They push the character…

    ★★★★

    It’s simply fun, don’t overthink it.

    I understand the point of view of pop culture trying to milk every last drop of revenue they can get from the same top 10 songs, I can understand why some may think that’s why this movie was created. But I see a different perspective, I think, regardless of whether this was the intentional goal or not, they put a different wholesome perspective on the culture of pure lust and lack of depth that…

    Morbius

    I think I’ll watch this movie any time I’m having trouble sleeping…

    Should I even go into why it was bad or should I just skip to the satire. I’ll give you a bit of both. Here it is briefly, the pacing: contradictory. Tell me how you can breeze through an entire backstory in a matter of 15 minutes, but spend half the movie on shots of different skylines to make up for your thoughtless lack of plot. The dialogue:…

  • The Adam Project

    The Adam Project

    ★★★★

    Something that I feel like most critics and people reviewing movies try to do is put cinema in a box.

    They compare movies to one another using one’s own brilliance as a standard for the rest, but that’s not right. Cinema isn’t a knowledge it’s an understanding, and to standardize it with criteria is to insult the inspiration it stands to spread. This movie may use a basic storyline with slight variations to give it a bare sense of originality,…

  • The Great Gatsby

    The Great Gatsby

    An absolute depressing and soul sucking sad excuse for a movie.

    Merely a collage of ten homeless people hired off the street to read cue cards in front of a camera. The acting (if you can call it that) dripped with more apathy and less practice than if the students in the class I watched it in had performed it ourselves. It was seemingly impossible to disgrace a book I already had no respect for but the creators of this…

  • Taxi Driver

    Taxi Driver

    ★★★★½

    Describing what makes this movie great is like describing why the sun shines… it just does, and the only person who couldn’t see that is a dead person.

    What I personally like about this movie is the subtle effect it has. Most great movies leave me walking away a changed person forever engraving the effect they had on me in my consciousness, but this was more subtle. I watch it and instead of thinking “wow what a life changing movie” I…

  • Hancock

    Hancock

    ★★★½

    This movie had so much potential…
    I think in the end I’ll still say this movie is severely underrated. It’s plot-line is creative and cinematically it was quite beautiful in more aspects than I was expecting. Normally I don’t write reviews for mediocre movies so as not to waste my time writing a mediocre review, but this movie was mediocre for an actually rather unique reason. Most mediocre movies really ride the line right in the middle of a great…

  • The Notebook

    The Notebook

    ★★★

    Out of all the romance movies I’ve seen… I will never rewatch this.
    It wasn’t terrible and it wasn’t great, it was honestly depressingly average and the only reason I’m reviewing it is because of how absolutely overhyped it is as one of the most bland, boring, predictable, and creativity depleting movies with a nearly genre owning title. So I just had to set the record straight and say: this is not a good romance movie and the only keeping it from a 2 and 1/2 is Ryan Gosling shirtless…

    It’s a scary concept to believe that no human is capable of truly understanding love…

    But man I think this is as close as you can get.

  • The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

    The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

    This movie slowly sapped my willpower to live…

    This trilogy is riddled with both greatness and failure. With the first movie starting out with such potential but it all slowly fell downhill. It really did have potential and I still love it’s intended purpose but boy did it fall apart in this last movie. I understand Peter Jackson was trying to match the tempo and the pacing of the original LOTR trilogy but it’s main problem was the lack of…

  • The Last Samurai

    The Last Samurai

    ★★★★½

    Cultural warfare both turbulent yet ever so elegant…

    Exploiting the flaws and weaknesses in any cultures government, yet showing the gracefulness of what can be when they stop fighting to understand. Pitted against each other in every way possible simply to find themselves. Fighting for lives while taking others, to finally understand who you are and be at peace. It’s a reality that many can use as a metaphor for which to compare their own lives to, and done ever so ruthlessly yet beautiful.
