    “yeah, well I guess you don’t know everything” 

    I first heard of the Port Arthur massacre just earlier this year. A massacre committed on April 28th 1996 by a lone gunman, which left 35 dead, and 23 injured with ages of the victims ranging from 3 to 72. I regretfully had only heard of this recently when I was relocating to Nova Scotia, Canada where not just shy of a year ago a lone gunman killed 22, and injured 3. Both events of similar tale yet across the world, and a difference of almost 25 years. Both events suffering similar horrific results.…

    The Ascent is a masterpiece.  

    I actively refuse to shy away from the word. I want to be as frank as I can be regarding the credit I believe this film deserves. I saw this film almost one year ago for the first time and its everlasting impact has not subsided even the slightest bit since that day.

"She cures his OCD though!" some defenders may say! It still doesn't negate his onslought of insults hurled towards a struggling (and desperate) single mom and a stereotypically acted gay man…

    The Green Knight


    "Friends, brothers, or sisters. Who can regale me and my Queen with some myth or tale?"

    Sir Gaiwan and the Green knight. A tale centuries old, retold through the eyes of David Lowery. This will be my first Lowery film. I hope it shall not be my last. 

    Almost 2 years ago the initial trailer dropped for this. I remember showing a few friends of  mine in unbridled joy. My excitement for this movie to come out in the next few months…
