    The Gentlemen


    Attended the NYC premiere of The Gentlemen at Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Downtown Brooklyn tonight, followed by a live Q&A with writer/director Guy Ritchie and select members of the cast - Matthew McConaughey, Michelle Dockery, Charlie Hunnam, Hugh Grant, and Henry Golding (pictured).

    (Yes, I was devastated that Jeremy Strong didn’t make an appearance.) 

    It was a fun experience, and I am glad Letterboxd partnered up with STX to offer its members an invitation. I do wish I was more…

    Let’s rewind to October 4th, 2019

    I’m a recent college graduate working my first full-time job in New York City. Of course, when you work in a major city, you get opportunities to attend all sorts of events. It happened to be the week of New York Comic-Con, and I figured since I’ve never been to any convention before, I’ll try to sign up and get tickets. Well, I didn’t know you had to sign up months in advance, but…

    Kung Fu Panda 2


    Kung Fu Panda 2 does up the ante in its action sequences, incorporating a variety of set pieces while maintaining its emotional core in revealing the origins of the titular character.

    It takes a bit of time to find its footing, as the first act feels rather generic for a direct sequel, but when it delves more into the lore tied with the battles between Shen, my engagement elevated. The third act, in particular, was exceptional for its visuals and…

    I stand with Bank of America!

    After premiering at SXSW nearly a year ago, Problemista has finally hit limited theaters this weekend, written, directed, and starring the originator Ryan Gosling’s Papyrus sketch on SNL.

    Much like the protagonist's personality, this was an awkward, quirky comedy where Julio Torres utilized his creativity to make up for a notably smaller budget in its favor.

    Tilda Swinton may have delivered her best performance in years, portraying a somewhat eccentric character with unpredictable behavioral…

    G.I. Jane


    Did I watch G.I. Jane solely because Chris Rock referred to it in his joke about Jada Pinkett Smith's alopecia condition, resulting in Will Smith walking on stage and slapping him in the face during last night's live broadcast of the Oscar's?


    While Ridley Scott intended to display the brutalities and intensities of preparation for war, that alone isn't enough to carry a film when the character work is lackluster, let alone with a two-hour runtime. Mix in political,…

    Fear Street: 1666


    If you're a fan of its two predecessors, chances are you will find enjoyment in Fear Street Part Three: 1666, but for me, it's more of the same, a bunch of mediocrity.

    As the title suggests, around a little over half the runtime is spent in the year 1666, and to put it bluntly, it was rather dull. But to be fair, it's very challenging to make period horrors engaging.

    I get it's a vision, of sorts, but it was…
