  • The Gentlemen

    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…

    1917

    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…

    Pleasantville

    "Where's my Dinner?"

    So, I'm guessing Pleasantville had to have been the movie that gave Tobey Maguire serious consideration into portraying Spider-Man?

    The concept here is super neat; very much a premise you would find in something like The Twilight Zone to where it involves social commentary and characters conflicting with morals in the backdrop of a science-fiction drama.

    While the messaging might be a little heavy-handed, the conflict of traditionalists' fear of change regarding the unknown adds a lot…

  • Better Off Dead...

    Better Off Dead...

    You better give me my two dollars, or you'd be Better Off Dead...

    This 80s comedy film is what I categorize as absurd humor and slightly bizarre; it's not entirely cohesive, and the characters are very surface level. But certain bits work as segments or sketches with chuckle-worthy moments. Like the single ski sword fight, sure, why not?

    The foreign exchange student character subplot went into a territory I did not expect, and I was pleasantly happy with the result,…

  • Fear Street: 1666

    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…

    The Mitchells vs. The Machines

    The Mitchells vs. The Machines is inventive in its animation, topical with themes of technology alongside the battle of generations when it comes to the perspective of societal standards, and simply charming with its characters.

    The family dynamic here with the Mitchells is fantastic, as they all have relatable traits and motivations to where it's impossible not to like them. The voice cast between Abbi Jacobson, Danny McBride, Maya Rudolph, and Michael Rianda (the writer and director who provides the…
