    Hereditary

    ★★★★½

    A culmination of everything the Horror genre has been leading up towards.


    Since I was a kid, horror has always been a favorite genre of mine. Birthdays were spent with my uncle binge watching movies like Vincent Price’s “The Pit and the Pendulum”, Alfred Hitchcock’s “The Birds” or other more obscure gems like “Day Of The Triffids”. 


    Hereditary is everything I had hoped the genre would become. 


    Now here are all my wordy thoughts on the matter

    Whiplash

    ★★★★★

    When I watched this movie for the first time, I had to actually pause it because it stressed me out so much.

    Sometimes when you watch a great movie you can point to one performance, or to the director’s vision, or even sometimes the score itself. This is one of those rare times where everything meshes together so incredibly well that you can’t point to one reason for the quality of the film

    ★★★★½

    Most films that have heavy symbolism usually fall into a trap of focusing solely on the meaning of it all, and forget to be realistic. Don’t get me wrong, I am a…

    Get Out

    ★★★★

    “Believe me, the irony of being a blind art dealer isn't lost on me.”

    Okay so honesty time, I used to hate on this movie a bunch. It wasn’t the message or the actors, or even the director. It was how the movie was executed, and how I didn’t believe it reached any of the goals it set out to complete. Upon my rewatch I found that it’s actually quite good and that I may need to put my foot…

    A Star Is Born

    ★★★★

    This is the most genuine that love has felt on screen in long time. 

  • Hell Fest

    Hell Fest

    ★★

    “Don’t worry about Gavin, he is probably pooping”
    “Ew, I did not need that mental image.”


    Hell Fest was genuinely frustrating. I didn’t go in with any high expectations or high hopes of this being suberb. I just wanted it to be fun, and dumb. But it was neither of those things, it was just frustratingly boring. 


    “You can tell which one is real by looking at thier hands”

    The acting is never a major concern with these slasher movies,…
