  • Pickup on South Street

    Pickup on South Street

    ★★★★★

    “Are you waving the flag at me?”

    Pickup on South Street is one of the best noirs ever made. The story hooks you from the very beginning with unexpected twists and turns that have you questioning every character in the process. As the story progresses, people’s true characters unravel and you find yourself feeling invested and affectionate towards the scoundrel hero and his friends.

  • The Empire Strikes Back

    The Empire Strikes Back

    ★★★★½

    “Hello, what have we here?”

    One of the greatest science fiction films ever made, The Empire Stikes Back steps off from the world building A New Hope provided to tell an engaging story filled with thrills, love, twists, comedy and action. This is the original trilogy at the peak of its powers. 

    “I’m standing here in pieces, and you’re having delusions of grandeur!”

    The writing is fantastic and it’s brought to life by the cast, production designers, and special effects…

    TRON: Legacy

    ★★★★★

    The visuals in this movie are some of the greatest that have ever been computer generated. Paired with the next-level soundtrack by Daft Punk, it’s an absolute must-see and one hell of a theatrical experience.

    Coupled with the top-tier performance by Jeff Bridges playing both Kevin Flynn and CLU, this piece of art is something to see. Olivia Wild brings a lot to her role, as well, making this a thoroughly enjoyable sci-fi action adventure. 

    The plot is gripping with…

  • A League of Their Own

    A League of Their Own

    ★★★★½

    A League of Their Own is just a delightful, wholesome movie that tells the true story of All-American Girls Baseball League. 

    “There’s no crying in baseball!” 

    Filled with a lovable ensemble of characters performed magnificently by O’Donnell, Madonna and others, they shoulder the challenge and excitement of making groundbreaking history in women’s sports in the 1940s. 

    The writing of this piece is especially well done. The characters feel realistic in every way, complete with depth and quirks. The sibling rivalry…

    Interstellar

    ★★★★★

    This is one of those rare films where everything is absolutely perfect from the first frame to the last. Without a doubt one of the best movies ever made. 

    The work done on this pushes the bounds of everything in cinema—writing, acting, production design, cinematography, special effects, music, sound design and every other bit of detail created by Nolan and his cast and crew. You love to see people who truly care about their craft and the work really telling…

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★½

    Overall, I had hoped for something better. To me, this film was 33% interesting narrative and emotional plot, 33% woke lecturing, and 33% repetitive jokes that the 2.5 hour experience probably could have done without. That being said, the production of this piece was extremely well crafted and the editing is masterful. The performances were great as a whole and I really enjoyed seeing Ke Huy Quan on screen again. I’ve always loved the roles he brought to life over…
