Here is the archive of every post from this website.
I’ve made lots of blog posts on this site. Here, you can find the site’s entire history. All categories and tags are included below.
Tár — An Enigmatic Character Study
This is one to ruminate on, discuss, rewatch, and then ruminate some more.
Black Adam — A Solid Entry in the DCEU
Black Adam just might be the best the DCEU has to offer outside films starring Batman or Superman.
Ticket to Paradise — You Know What You’re Getting
It doesn’t just have lighthearted laughs and jabs, but it has a mature look at what it means to be a family and a parent
Bros — A Charming, Honest Romcom
You can’t help but smile and feel warm about Bros
Blonde — A Shallow, Repetitive Slog
its most glaring and immediate sin is that it’s just not a very good movie
See How They Run — A Vastly Underwhelming Whodunnit
I’ll remember See How They Run, if at all, mostly for its wasted potential.
Bullet Train — Exciting, Original Action
This Bullet Train doesn’t quite smoothly stop at the station, but it’s still a smooth and enjoyable ride.
Honk For Jesus. Save Your Soul. — Biting Religious Commentary
It might not save your soul, but it’s worth honking for this movie.
Breaking — An Emotional John Boyega Vehicle
Boyega’s performance in Breaking is so good, in fact, that it’s practically the entire reason the movie works at all.
The Woman King — Revamping the Historical Epic
Like the Agojie, The Woman King’s main ideas are too strong and relentless to be stopped.
Don’t Worry Darling — A Boring Sci-Fi Attempt
I gave Don’t Worry Darling a fair shake, and unfortunately it just doesn’t work, leaving the Twitter drama to be more entertaining after all.
Bodies Bodies Bodies — A Gen Z Whodunnit
It’s a whole lot of fun, and has enough to say that it overcomes an initially vacuous premise.
Three Thousand Years of Longing — Grasping at What We Can
Three Thousand Years of Longing joins what is becoming a chorus of movies singing the necessity of holding onto each other as everything else slowly slips from our grasp.
Marcel the Shell with Shoes On — Seeing the World Through a Shell’s Eye
The main reason to watch this film, though, is because of the emotional maturity and human understanding that Marcel displays
Nope — Jordan Peele Back to Form
Nope, yet again, will have audiences discussing the meaning and details of a Jordan Peele film for a long time
Thor: Love and Thunder — Embarrassed at Itself
it’s all just too thin by the third, and no connection, stakes, or ideas have been substantially built
Elvis — A Typical Biopic Slog
there’s next to nothing to grab onto, besides the charismatic lead performance
The Fallout — An Infuriating Call to Action
It takes an unflinching, scathing look at the realities of this now all-too-common occurrence
On the Count of Three — Raw and Dark, Yet Life-Affirming
On the Count of Three comes across as brutally honest and raw storytelling.
Apollo 10 1/2 — Rotoscoped Nostalgia
Sometimes it’s nice to see the world through someone else’s eyes.
