    ★★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Why you pursue something is as important as what you pursue.

    For those curious, yes, despite having watched the movie not long ago to properly prepare for this paper, I watched it again so this can count as a proper research. Turns out, when you're dealing with an all-time favorite movie, you can seemingly watch it every day and not get tired of it. This in a way, at least at the moment, feels like a culmination of the two…

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    (Before we get into this, a disclaimer. This is not meant to discredit anyone that has legitimate criticisms or truthfully disliked what’s presented. This is an in-depth analysis based on my personal takeaways mixed with takeaways I have seen from separate analyses which I agree with. Everyone is equally entitled to an opinion so long as they have enough to be able to back up said opinion. Even if you disagree with what I have to say, I still appreciate…

    Me and You and Everyone We Know

    ½

    Email wouldn’t even exist if it weren’t for AIDS.

    Woof. Not my thing at all. The exact kind of "quirky" filmmaking that instead of feeling off the beaten path in a fun way just gets really under my skin. Often felt direct disdain for the characters in this, and at the absolute best, I would be bored with them. To offer the film the two compliments I can give it, I like its color palette and the musical score was…

  • David Lynch: The Art Life

    David Lynch: The Art Life

    ★★★½

    Sometimes the past conjures ideas. The past colors them.

    Happy birthday to one of the greatest artists of all-time, in film or otherwise. Something that this film highlights actually, though it's something you may know about him even before watching this, is that David thinks of himself as a painter first. His love for art began with painting, and in his free time, he smokes, drinks coffee, and paints. "The Art Life" is what he calls it. If you are…

  • One Night in Miami...

    One Night in Miami...

    ★★★★

    Oh, there've been times that I thought
    I couldn't last for long
    But now I think I'm able to carry on

    There are instances where I believe nearly all movies need to be seen at least twice. Art often times has so much effort and passion put into it that a mere first glance wouldn't do justice to the work behind it. One Night in Miami... is a movie that I feel absolutely belongs in that category, and I liked…

  • Apostle

    Apostle

    ★★★★

    Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

    First Reformed: "I'm going to be the most atmospheric, disturbing, and enthralling exploration of faith in 2018!"

    Apostle: "Hold my beer."

    One of my most anticipated films of the year did not disappoint at all. Gareth Evans trades in claustrophobic fisticuffs spectacle for grand-scale Gothic horror, and proves he can do both almost equally well. Apostle is the film equivalent of nails on…
