    Blade Runner 2049

    ★★★★

    A quest for meaning in a meaningless existence, we’ve seen characters question their purpose in a countless number of films, but Villeneuve’s exploration of this within Gosling’s character one of the most fascinating ever. The fact that Gosling is a replicant, and by definition, lacks a purpose in his existence, adds so much to the journey he undergoes throughout the film. Like Ridley Scott’s original, it’s really easy to misunderstand this film if you are looking into the film’s narrative…

    A Ghost Story

    ★★★★½

    The first thing that I want to make known about this film is that I adored the pie eating scene, in fact, it moved me to tears. What is one of the most controversial scenes of the last few years also happens to be one of my favorites ever. You are probably pretty confused at why I chose this as one of my favorite scenes when, honestly, nothing much happens at all within the scene. Here is the scene if you are…

    Crash

    ★★★½

    Cronenberg’s Crash is the epitome of an alienating film. It’s inherent sexuality aims to distract the audience from whatever semblance of a story it builds up, creating an odd dynamic within each viewer. Crash is something I have a hard time admitting that I liked, but the intent behind its filmmaking was most certainly there. It did feel like the lack of character development was clearly intentional, but for a reason I don’t quite understand. This made the film feel…

    The Blob

    Hooptober number 8 (Film 1)
    6 Countries- USA

    Audiences in 1958 were actually scared of a bright red stop-motion gelatinous blob...

    Just a boring and dull film, The Blob is a prime example of a film that aged awfully. What was at one time thrilling and terrifying now comes across as bottom of the barrel, b movie schlock at its very worst. The performances here really take me out of the experience, with Steve McQueen being an outlier in particular. His…

    You know the chicken walk?

    Since I’ve already discussed Blue Velvet to death on here, I thought I’d use this review to being attention to a lesser appreciated aspect of the film, which is the musical numbers. To me, the musical numbers as well as Angelo Badalamenti’s original score are integral pieces of Blue Velvet’s atmosphere, and are honestly the highlights of the film for me. Isabella Rossellini’s performance of “Blue Velvet” is purely mesmerizing and emotive. Although vastly…

  • Halloween II

    Halloween II

    ★★★★

    Halloween II does manage to recreate most of the magic from John Carpenter’s original, it does take place on the same night after all, but following up an undeniable phenomenon like Halloween is certainly a tall order. Rick Rosenthal is a decent presence at the helm of this film, but the story still oozes with classic Carpenter excellence. It is one of the most remarkable slasher sequels ever for its direct loyalty to the original story, continuing to build upon…
