    The Power of the Dog

    ★★★★★

    Set in Montana 1925, Campion charts a course in disassembling our decades long history with heroes from the wild west. All of their stature, machismo, swagger, and charm is still present within Cumberbatch’s Phil Burbank, but it is refiled under how that identity can be weaponized. We know who Clint Eastwood and John Wayne were outside of their movies, but audiences still loved the hum of their vocal cords and incredible screen presence. Cumberbatch maintains that with his own low…

    Living Eternal

    For the past 13 years, Marvel Studios has gone from being promising with Phase One, to being borderline terrible in the last few. In Phase One the emphasis was on telling a singular story to service the whole later, but it’s recessed into focusing on the bigger picture rather than the smaller. This has forced their films to adhere to a specific image of what they are to maintain brand identity amidst an era where everything backed by…

    Honestly, I forgot I watched this. 

    Phases right through you because it’s so same-y. This incessant need to make movies way longer than they should be is driving me crazy. Inflates it’s runtime with big budget moments but not enough story or drama to back it. Like they’re afraid of making a silly time travel movie efficient. Feels like this, amongst other examples, need to be over 2 hours long because 2+ hour movies are respected or something. I don’t…

    Movies are incredible. 

    Mesmerizing how a crew of people are able to effectively conceptualize accepting that death is a part of the journey and intertwining that with your life. Scheider has never been better and the sets, music, performances, editing, directing and writing are other worldly. I felt like I was invited to a place I shouldn’t be allowed. 

    It’s so open and unafraid of critique whether it’s from self or external relationships. I’ve truly never seen a film capable…

    ★★★★½

    If Denis Villeneuve wasn't the best film-maker working today, Zack Snyder would have the best shot selection in all of Hollywood. This guy shot this movie on an iPhone and it looks better than most movies released on a budget 1,000 times the price of an iPhone X! Snow Steam Iron is a firm reminder that Snyder is one of the purest Hollywood visionaries working today. 

    In Snow Steam Iron we see a corrupt system in the snow laced streets of New…

    Boyhood

    ★★★★½

    Quite possibly the most ambitious film of 2014, Richard Linklater's, 'Boyhood' is a stunning work of art and one of cinema's finest achievements. This film is shot over 12 years of time from the years 2002-2014, following a boy by the name of Mason (played by Ellar Coltrane) throughout this time span.

    To be quite honest, I don't think I've ever resonated with a film more in my entire life. Following this boy growing up was absolutely incredible to watch,…
