When I think of the most harrowing depictions of war in cinema, there's only one answer...the first twenty minutes of Saving Private Ryan. Never did I imagine a movie would capture this anxiety and dread in totality until I saw 2022's German submission for the Academy Awards, Im Westen nichts Neues (All Quiet on the Western Front)
When anyone asks me how I heard about Barbarian, now streaming on HBO, I tell them what everyone else says - word of mouth.
It's spooky season, and what am I doing? I'm going to watch Practical Magic for the millionth time as part of my yearly October tradition.👻
The drama surrounding Don't Worry Darling has created a cloud of disenchantment and avoidance, and I’m here to tell you - the more I think about this movie, the more I love it.
Blonde is undoubtedly the most controversial movie of 2022, but my qualms with it go beyond it's *gasp* NC-17 rating.
There are some movies that make you cry, while others make you uncontrollably ugly cry. What's the difference? An inconsolable heart and inability to stop the water works.
If A24's Spring Breakers and The Bling Ring had a baby, it would be slasher comedy Bodies Bodies Bodies.☠️
There are a handful of recent movies that may have saved cinema (Top Gun: Maverick, anyone?), and Jordan Peele has done his damnest to be in that category this year. But, does he succeed?
With a super-star like Elvis Presley, and a spectacle, maximalist director like Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge!, The Great Gatsby), one would think Elvis would be in the right hands. But, the dazzle of Elvis fades quickly in this monotonous biopic of the rise and fall of the King of Rock.
Bold and brutal storytelling slightly missed the mark for me with the Internet's recent favorite from Neon.
