    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    ★★★★★

    “You fuckin' hippies came up here to smoke dope on a dark road, huh?”

    Rarely do I watch a film that actually leaves me slack-jawed near the end. Amazed? Sure, often enough. But, completely astonished and bewildered beyond belief? Rarely. That’s how Once Upon a Time in Hollywood left me feeling. Tarantino has been one of my favorite directors since I saw Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2 and Inglourious Basterds.

    There’s nothing better than watching a bunch of nazis get…

  • Pearl Harbor

    Pearl Harbor

    ★★★★★

    “Why the hell’s the Navy doing practice this early on a Sunday?”

    Growing up I was HUGE into history, especially American history. WW2 and the attack on Pearl Harbor was a major focus of my interests. My love for film at a young age was what attracted me to history as well. Movies like Flags of our Fathers, Letters from Iwo Jima, Saving Private Ryan & many more were what really introduced me to the Great Wars long before I ever…

    Generation War

    ★★★★★

    Unsere Mütter, unsere Väter brought me to tears by the end. This German series shines a light on World War 2 in a perspective many American films haven’t. This is a story about five friends, convinced that the war will end swiftly and they could all return home together soon. They’re young and naive and soon learn that they were facing a drastically different journey than they ever could have imagined. 

    This epic mini-series is unlike anything I’ve seen before.…

    Ant-Man and the Wasp

    ★★★★★

    “What does the FBI even stand for? Forever Bothering Individuals?”

    The return of Ant-Man and Co. sees us conclude a 30 year old incident. Hank Pym and his wife Janet are the original Ant-Man and Wasp. We see how she is lost to the quantum realm and we see how the team attempts to bring her back. The opening scene of this film always gets me emotional and I would love to see more flashbacks of Pym and his wife…

  • Wonder Woman 1984

    Wonder Woman 1984

    ★★★★

    “Nothing good is born from lies. And greatness is not what you think.”

    After what seemed like three very long years and a couple delays, we finally got the second Wonder Woman film. From the trailers, the film seemed to look like a huge step up from the first. Gal Gadot returning in the role, with Patty Jenkins behind the camera, we see a long, colorful globe trotting adventure with Diana Prince and Steve Trevor. 

    I personally do not like…

  • Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

    Ma Rainey's Black Bottom

    ★★★★★

    “I know what I'm doin'. Let me handle them my way.”

    The knowledge I have on blues music and those who left an impact on the genre is little to none. So, I was pleasantly surprised with this film as I believe Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom is one of the greatest films of the year. 

    Chadwick Boseman, while his character wasn’t the focal point of the film, presented us with one of the most enthralling, electrifying and emotional performances I’ve…
