    Coming to America

    Coming to America is one of my all-time favorite films. The ultimate comfort/guilty pleasure movie for me. A film that has stood the test of time, and remains a classic that I could watch anytime of anyday. It's a time capsule of 80's romantic dreams. A powerhouse of vulgar comedy mixed with angelic morals that makes me feel that special kind of fuzzy. Eddie Murphy is at his absolute peak here, delivering multiple iconic performances through just a single film.…

    Death is inevitable. We cannot escape it's chilling grasp, nor can we protect the ones we love from it's icy touch. The anguish we feel when we lose those most precious to us is a pain that can seem insurmountable. It debilitates us, encompasses our existence, and tests our very will to survive. Their absence feels as if a festering wound has been carved directly out of our fragile souls, leaving an empty void of regrets that over time develops…

    Bullet Train maximizes it's outrageous premise with stylish action and a ridiculous comedic tone that feels borderline relentless. It uses it's setting to great effect, with neon lights and tight spaces that make some of the kung-fu-esqe fight scenes feel claustrophobic and satisfying. The characters are a lot of fun, with everyone seeming to enjoy playing their parts. I had a blast watching them banter and beat each other up throughout. Brad Pitt was unsurprisingly great here. He stole the…

    This is yet another film on the Letterboxd top 250 horror that puzzles me. The performances are generally well done, and the story stays interesting for the most part. I would even say that this is a pretty decent movie. However, I spent a lot of it's very lengthy runtime wondering when it was supposed to scare me. Some scenes do have a first-person giallo kind-of feel to them, which I did appreciate. I can only speculate this is part…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This review is going to sound pretty cynical, but the movie was disappointing for me. On one hand the acting was solid, especially for the cast being predominantly children. Mason Thames does a good job as Finny, and Ethan Hawk is undeniably creepy as The Grabber. However, the real star here is Madeline McGraw as Gwen. She has the makings of a special talent, and was easily my favorite part of the movie. Her performance was hilarious and inspired throughout,…

    Jordan Peele is unquestionably a talented director. The man knows how to frame a scene, and he seems to take a lot of pride in presenting his vision. I also appreciate that he isn't making the exact same movie over and over, which is refreshing in this age of regurgitated ideas. That being said, I am extremely confused as to how anyone can say this was "good" with a strait face.

    For starters the pacing is incredibly slow for a…
