    "You think it's gonna be an early spring?" "I'm predicting March 21st."

    Well, it’s Groundhog Day… again. And you know what that means – it’s time for my annual viewing of Groundhog Day. So, I’m a little strange when it comes to movie watching. I watch at least one film per day, but I have a tendency to go years between viewings of the same film. Part of that is due to…

    "I apologize for the crudity of this model. I didn't have time to build it to scale or paint it."

    Given that tomorrow (October 21, 2015) is the future, I knew I would have to watch the trilogy to celebrate. Unfortunately, I also knew I wouldn't have 6 hours to devote to the movies, so I decided to get a head start and watch Part I today. I always find it extremely difficult to write reviews for films I really…

    “It ain’t hope if it’s a lie.”

    As a big fan of Guillermo del Toro’s movies, I always highly anticipated each new film of his. His last effort, The Shape of Water, immediately jumped up to being my second favorite of his, so I was curious and excited to see what his follow up would be like. And after a four-year wait, del Toro’s back with… a remake? Alright, so it’s technically…

    “What’s a gang without its terrain?”

    This is one of the more ambitious remakes we’ve had in a while. It’s one thing to remake a film that was panned to try to improve upon it or to remake a film that’s not particularly well-known. But remaking (or readapting) a movie like West Side Story is another thing entirely. That 1961 film isn’t some poorly rated movie that’s drifted into obscurity over the…

    "I'm not sure if I agree with you 100% on your police work there, Lou."

    If it doesn't click upon first watch, Fargo is definitely one of those films that grows on you. The first time I saw it, I really didn't understand all of the praise it gets. It was a decent movie, but nothing all that special. However, upon each rewatch, I've found myself growing more and more fond of it. I love the look of this film…

    "How am I supposed to heal if I can't feel time?"

    I almost forgot how much I like this movie. Fitting, I suppose. This is one incredibly intriguing film. Even if this was told in a traditional manner, it would still be a good story. But it's the unique construction of the storytelling that really sets this film far apart from any others. Viewing snippets in reverse order may seem sort of gimmicky or confusing to some at first, but…
