    Babylon

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The city of Babylon was destined to fall. A place of excess, of lust, of people at their basic, most primal instincts. It was never going to last, but it has since gone on to outlive its demise to become a true piece of legend. Reality turned into a myth, and the myth became immortal.

    It is fitting that Damien Chazelle called his latest film Babylon. It is as if he knew that all of this (be it his career,…

    Aftersun

    I will never forget what my history professor told my class in middle school: "Right now, your parents are perfect almost like gods. But there'll be a day when you see their flaws, how imperfect they are. The day you realize they are just people, is the day you will become an adult."

    During that warm summer in Turkey, Charlotte Wells saw just how human her father was. Maybe not explicitly, but she internalized that there was a lingering sadness…

    Welcome to another episode of Nick's Gaming Corner! Finnish developer Remedy Entertainment is one of my favorite production companies, having made my favorite game of all time (the 2003 neo-noir shooter Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne) and the nightmarish thriller Alan Wake.

Hats off to Kogonada, he was always destined to pick up a camera himself and create thoughtful works of art. Loved this to bits, I really do need to sit down and finally complete Linklater's filmography.

    Notes from Venice Film Festival
    People are not ready for Brendan Fraser's beautifully heartbreaking and heartfelt return to the silver screen. Aronofsky, you outdid yourself! Now on to wipe away the tears with everyone else who attended the screening.

  • Don't Worry Darling

    Don't Worry Darling

    Notes from Venice Film Festival
    Olivia Wilde's twisty turny take on life in suburbia and the oppression of the patriarchy is an overly predictable, soulless thriller with nothing new to say. Pugh rules, Pine steals the show, and Styles is utterly forgettable. Painfully dull.
