    Dante: A Replication

    WATCH IT HERE (Don't spoil it for others!)

    I was told I "wasn't good enough" to create something like this, but I decided I wasn't going to take excuses and shot my first short film isolated in Quarantine, with only an iPhone and no equipment at my disposal. Despite my limitations, I persevered and worked hard to complete it, and am proud to present this sci-fi horror thriller short it it's final form.

    The following is a list of films/people…

  • She Dies Tomorrow

    She Dies Tomorrow

    ★★★★½

    A // Full Review at CLAPPER
    Due to premiere as a headliner of the thirty-second edition of this year’s South By Southwest Film Festival (that was cancelled due to the ongoing events of the pandemic), She Dies Tomorrow has had to brave many obstacles to get to where it is today. Alas, due to its timely premise, Amy Seizmetz’s newest film has a new-found potential of becoming the next big cinematic conversation starter of the summer. 

    From the start of the…

    The Strange Thing About the Johnsons

    ★★★★

    B+ // 78

    QR: Loved it. It takes multiple left turns throughout the film and is filled to the brim with thematic depth, and it’s disgusting plot adds to an eerily disturbing atmosphere that was perfectly cultivated by Ari Aster himself. You can definitely tell he was the guy who went on to make hereditary and midsommar. My only gripe is that it would’ve benefited from a bit more character development from the two leads as that would’ve made the…

    ★★★½

    B

    A solid, compelling story, but would’ve benefited much more from being told as a narrative feature film than a talking head documentary.

    Joker

    ★★★★½

    A (Script Review)
    EDIT: Looking back on this, I was extremely hyperbolic and this really made me cringe... going to leave it up for laughs but you have been warned lol

    Premiering at the Venice International Film Festival, Todd Phillip's Joker is one of the BEST films of the year. Set from the start with the goal of evoking gritty crime films rather than everyday superhero blockbusters, Joker is definitely a new classic for the ages. While Todd Phillips common…

  • Lucy in the Sky

    Lucy in the Sky

    6/10 C+ (script Review)
    *update: WOW... Seems everyone hated it. I guess The directon from Hawley is either loved or hated*
    Much like Ad Astra and Joker, going into Lucy in the Sky, my expectations for the film were astronomical (no pun intended). However, what I thought was going to be a deep exploration about how the horrors of space could change you, turned out to be a unambitious story that just coincidentally is set in NASA and space (with my initial…
