    The film ends and the theater is silent. No one immediately stands up to leave. There is a collective air of "What the actual fuck just happened?"

    When movies end like this, I always know I've seen something extraordinary. Sometimes the extraordinary is pretentious try hard material, but most often it is breathtaking, original art.

    The latter is the case with The Green Knight. I had no idea what happened after my second post-lockdown theater experience, and needed a solid…

    Are you also afraid that A.I. one day will be in charge of all of our books, media, and television? Are you scared by how much the Netflix algorithm already controls?

    From the second Van Halen's Jump record drop opens the film, these thoughts raced through my head. I can just picture Spielberg sitting in his armchair saying "Siri, generate the top Billboard songs of the 80s for my next motion picture soundtrack. You Make My Dreams Come True by…

    Woah. Did I expect this to be good? Not really. Is it just as good as the first if not, dare I say, better? You bet!!

    The original still ranks higher for me at the moment, but with the time that may change. Wow. I am always apprehensive following a favorite film with its sequel, especially if a different director is involved. Halloween II quickly quelled that fear.

    Rick Rosenthal does a fantastic job. Halloween II is gorier than its…

    The Lost World to Jurassic Park is more or less what The Temple of Doom is to Raiders of the Lost Ark. Much darker in tone and less magical than its predecessor.

    I agree with the consensus opinion on The Lost World. The film is full of entertaining action. The Tyrannosaurus is a compelling villain. The human characters aren't as fleshed out as they are in the first Jurassic Park, but the talented cast do enough with what they have…

    Luca is a generational talent. Pristine court vision, high basketball IQ, and a leader on and off the court. At only 22 years of age, he is only beginning to show the world what he can do.






    Uhhhhh wait sorry guys wrong Luka.

    I don't know about this one. I figured with Sofia Coppola under the helm it couldn't be THAT bad. My mistake.

    The technical side of the film is commendable. Close and personal camera work captures its tone splendidly. The cinematography is nice.

    The problem is, there isn't much substance for the camera to actually capture. I enjoyed the nostalgia trip of the movie, as I was in high school the same time as the characters. The soundtrack is fun and…
