I bet that a lot … Continue reading ‘Never Rarely Sometimes Always’ Movie Review – Masterfully Crafted Abortion Drama is Essential Viewing

The Final Five Theater Experiences I Had Before They All Went Away (Very Sad)

So if you're reading this, Covid-19... back the hell off! What you're doing here, it's not cool. Staying home from school and … Continue reading The Final Five Theater Experiences I Had Before They All Went Away (Very Sad)

My Epic and Correct Ranking of the 22 PIXAR Films: 15-11

This is Part 2 of my PIXAR ranking. If you haven't read the first part, click this link. 15- Monsters University This is probably the hottest take of this ranking.

But … Continue reading My Epic and Correct Ranking of the 22 PIXAR Films: 15-11

The Invisible Man (2020) Movie Review – A Horror MASTAPEECE!

In 2018, director Leigh Whannell blessed humanity with the beautiful and badass motion picture by the name of Upgrade. After that wonder of a film, I was an official Whannell Fanboy. Upgrade didn't make anywhere near as much as it should have, but that didn't matter much. Because my boy Whannell knows how to budget a … Continue reading The Invisible Man (2020) Movie Review – A Horror MASTAPEECE!

February Movie Review 6-Pack (Call of the Wild, Sonic the Hedgehog, Horse Girl, Shaun the Sheep: Farmageddon, and More!)

Horse Girl Horse Girl is a Netflix original film that begins as a quirky rom-com and ends as psychological horror. It stars Alison Brie (GLOW, Community, Bojack Horseman) as Sarah, a introverted lover of crafts, horses, and a Supernatural-esque TV show.

A Horse of a Different Color: “Bojack Horseman” Series Review

Bojack Horseman (or the Sad-Horse Show, as I call it) is a weird-as-hell adult animated television program about the washed-up star of a popular 90's sitcom called Horsin' Around.

Weathering With You – Incomplete Movie Review

Weathering With You is a strikingly beautiful and intensely relatable sophomore feature from director Makoto Shinkai about weather and love. Your Name, Shinkai's first film, is the highest grossing anime film of all time as well as one of the best reviewed movies of 2016. I haven't seen Your Name, because I'm an awful person, … Continue reading Weathering With You – Incomplete Movie Review

I Have a Bit of a Grudge With ‘The Grudge’ (2020) – Movie Review

The Grudge is a very cliche and very not good movie that held my interest because of its amazingly talented cast and interesting use of time. It weaves four mediocre stories together in a way that switches between feeling really clever, and super surface-level and rushed. But it was always watchable for me because each … Continue reading I Have a Bit of a Grudge With ‘The Grudge’ (2020) – Movie Review
