    “We are alone. No matter what they tell you, we women are always alone.”

    By far the best film I’ve seen this year! The cinematography is astounding and every single shot puts the viewer right into the setting. Alfonso Cuaron took memories from his childhood attempted to photograph them through this film. In doing so, we feel like we’re right there with Celo and the struggles she faces. 

    Alfonso Cuaron does an amazing job directing this film. What’s even more…

    “I never wanted to be your mother.”

    Hereditary is one of the most creatively crafted horror films ever made. Ari Aster’s direction is brilliant from the very first frame to the last and his sense of camerawork creates a haunting tone that is perfectly accented with Colin Stetson’s chilling score. Every shot seems like it could be hiding a dark figure in the corner of the room as the lighting and cinematography create a sense of dread and paranoia that…

    ★★★

    “Sometimes dead is better.”

    Every year we see a new Stephen King adaptation. This year, “Pet Sematary”was remade nearly 30 years after the first film and 36 years after King’s original novel was released. Some King adaptations are complete misses, while others become known as some of the best films ever made, much like “The Shining” and “Misery”. “Pet Sematary”, however seems to land somewhere in between.

    Dr. Louis Creed (Jason Clarke) and his wife Rachel (Amy Seimetz) move from…

    “If you wanna get crazy, we can get crazy!”

    Jordan Peele returns for his second feature length film after the massive success of the cultural phenomenon that was "Get Out". The horror, mystery, thriller was a social commentary on racism. However, this time with "Us" Jordan Peele gives us a thought provoking message that's suggests that the true enemy may be ourselves.

    Lupita Nyong'o stars as both Adelaide and Red, Red being her evil self who shows up at her…

    “Some wounds do not close; I have many such.”

    Yorgos Lanthimos is one of the greatest visionary filmmakers working today! The Favourite is without a doubt his best film yet. It’s masterfully crafted and the acting is completely transformative! Emma Stone and Rachel Weiz are outstanding. However, while they’re all amazing, the standout performance comes from Olivia Colman as Queen Anne. 

    I am an enourmous fan of Lanthimos’s visual style. I love the fish eye and wide angle lenses and…
