  • Candyman

    Candyman

    ★★★½

    While the 2021 Candyman isn’t relying on the horror as much as the original, I think Nia DaCosta does a great job at what makes this movie weak: telling a black story from the perspective of black people. The 2021 Candyman has its own issues where it’s stuffing a LOT of ideas into 91 minutes, but it gives the lore of Candyman and its meaning in society much more depth that makes it so much more compelling. They’re two very…

    Laurence Olivier 🤝 Nicole Kidman

  • The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

    The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

    ★★★½

    This film was completely carried by none other than Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson. While the film was still enjoyable for the demonic possession horror sub genre, it was missing two key aspects: James Wan and a genuine care for the suffering family. The conjuring franchise is one of the only modern horror universes that continues to captivate me, but this one definitely fell short from Wan’s first two conjuring installations.

  • Fist of Fury

    Figuring out the racist sign in Minnie’s place from The Hateful Eight is a reference to this movie changed my entire viewing experience

  • The Last Blockbuster

    All Star playing during this doc truly cemented its time-capsule feel

  • Miracle

    This movie definitely made me excited for Seattle to FINALLY get an NHL team

  • A Room with a View

    A Room with a View

    ★★★½

    I’m not a big fan of period pieces (Little Women aside) so this wasn’t really up my alley, but I made an effort to enjoy it as a Helena Bonham Carter & Maggie Smith stan. The cast is obviously great with Daniel Day-Lewis playing an extremely unlikeable snob, like this is probably the first role where I DONT like DDL. If you like British period pieces you’ll definitely enjoy this, but otherwise it’s not a necessary viewing.

    Okay also why are 75% of big-name British actors either in Harry Potter, Game of Thrones, Star Wars, or Love Actually? Bonus points for those who star in multiple.

  • Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure

    Be excellent to each other!

  • The Amityville Horror

    The Amityville Horror

    ★★★½

    If there’s a little kid talking to a ghost I’m gonna be scared, so it did its job. Honestly this was exactly what I expected of it- creepy 70s horror movie that’s not amazing, but still a good watch.
