    Orphan: First Kill

    ★★

    Easy to decipher that the studio didn’t give a crap about making this film presentable. Poorly lit interiors, camerawork comes off as amateurish, no money for a realistic looking fire or other visual effects. Television shows with the budget of a peanut look ten times as better as a studio film; it’s a travesty to watch. Nobody was asking for the prequel and this now taints the first film which was honestly better than it deserved to be. On the…

    “To infinity and beyond” 

    Smart approach to set this origin story within the meta universe of Andy’s childhood as the feature film that made him fall in love with the character of Buzz Lightyear; setting up a background for an actual Roy’s existence would have been weird and clunky to begin with so props to the writers for sidestepping that plot blunder. A lot of fun and heart at the center of the film that asks for people to learn…

    Visually one of the biggest cinematic achievements to ever grace the screen. Set the bar on how 3D could be used and implemented to transport the audience into a experience rather than just being a gimmick used to justify higher ticket prices.

A story about people being exploited…

    When you see a great romantic comedy, you hold onto that film with a tight grasp, kiss it, and let it know that they are special in your eyes. Many prognostics have deemed the genre dead, which may be factual, which makes films like these a rare treat to cherish when they get released. Some of the best work from Carrell and Gosling each paining a mirror that stands as opposite but over time becomes a proxy father son relationship…

    Candyman

    ★★★

    The modern update of the supernatural entity known as Candyman is impressive how it weaves racial and systemic inequalities, generational trauma, Cronenberg body horror, and Hitchcock inspired atmosphere. Nia DaCosta shows that she is a student of the great directors whose bread and butter are psychological thriller/horror; the handle of the camera with its revealing close ups, hypnotizing tracking shots, wide angles, and upside down/reserve motifs keep the viewer on edge and enclosing the senses in an inescapable prison of…
