If you were to tell me 4 years ago that Jordan Peele, co-star of a sketch comedy show, who made ridiculously funny jokes and satire, could make a truly scary movie that would completely screw with us, I would have laughed in your face.
Yet a new contender for Wiseau’s title has risen from whatever Tartarean pit produces these delusional movie makers—and his name is Neil Breen.
The MCU finally has a female-led film, and she is indomitable and indispensable
It was a Saturday in late July, and I was far too sick to go outside to get the farmer’s tan I had been promising myself since winter. With yet another shitty Jurassic Park sequel hitting the theaters, I figured I would watch the decent original for the first time since I was young enough to actually know the names of the film’s unwitting, dinosaurian villains. I quickly realized that the film was essentially a rehashing of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein: a one-dimensional warning that what we “ought” and “can” do aren’t exactly one in the same.
Over the summer, the blockbuster Incredibles 2 hit theaters everywhere and it was an absolutely amazing movie I did not know I needed. First of all, they addressed the ending of the previous movie where the Underminer tries to take over the city. Even though he is not the ultimate villain of the movie, I thought the way the film used Violet losing her mask as one of its many plot points was pretty cool. It made us wonder what would happen if someone saw her in the mask. It was super dramatic, so go watch it (#nospoilers).
Here is a hot (and probably unpopular) take: the movie To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before is overrated.
Do not read this if you intend on seeing the movie. But don’t see it…
I wasn’t very interested in seeing Ready Player One, considering I hadn’t read the book nor was I very interested in the concept at all. I had also heard the book had some problematic elements when it comes to representation. Nevertheless, right before spring break ended my friend asked me to go see this with him, since he had read the book and thoroughly enjoyed it. I decided to go and see it.
Disclaimer: Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. I genuinely enjoy the new movies being released by Lucasfilm and I love seeing this new, younger generation of Star Wars fans get excited the same way I did when The Clone Wars came out. I am not forcing you to like the new movies, but please do not come at me saying I am not a “true fan” just because I actually liked The Force Awakens. The new movies do not make me love the original trilogy any less.
From the stunning stop-animation to his dynamic characters, Wes Anderson has truly outdone himself yet again, in his latest film, Isle of Dogs. As a huge fan of Wes Anderson’s work, as well as a huge lover of dogs, I was super excited when I saw the preview for this filmwhen I went to see Black Panther (which, of course, was also brilliant.) And, I’m happy to say, my expectations were certainly met and perhaps were even exceeded.
