    This has been a top priority rewatch for me ever since I first watched it in March of last year. It immediately became one of my favorite films of all time, if not my favorite on that initial viewing. I have no good reason why I never rewatched it, but I finally got myself a Blu-Ray copy to fix that. I must admit, I was a little skeptical at first: It had been so long since I first saw it…

    I'm gonna be honest ... I didn't want to review this movie. The reason I've gotten so behind on my reviews lately is because I've been procrastinating this one. It's a Wonderful Life is one of the greatest movies ever made, and even though this was my second viewing, the overwhelming amount of joy and happiness I felt by the ending inspired me unlike any movie I've ever seen. How can I describe it? This film inspired me to be…

    Everyone and their grandmother knows about the ending of Signs being "one of the worst endings in movie history" and whatever (light spoilers in the following paragraph). I don't buy into the supposed plot hole about aliens landing on a planet covered in the only thing that kills them as a legitimate criticism because of how easily explainable it is (watch Chris Stuckmann's video if you're interested), but the problems with the way the scene is set up are still…

    This review was very hard to write … I don't really know how I feel about this movie, or at least not completely. To point out the things I liked (of which there are many), I have to praise Michael B. Jordan's performance as Adonis Creed, giving a nice bend of character development similar to Rocky while holding true to his own unique personality, showing that this is his story, not a story about Rocky Balboa; likewise, Sylvester Stallone's Oscar-nominated…

    Since Shazam 2 is coming out soon, I decided it was time to stop my unplanned DCEU hiatus and catch up on some of their movies. I'm pretty sure everyone knows why this movie failed: Warner Bros fought tooth and nail against Zack Snyder's vision and hired Joss Whedon, a guy with a completely different filmmaking style, to take over after Snyder stepped down late in production due to personal reasons. This movie is terrible even without that knowledge, but…

    ★★★½

    It's been well documented that this was Hitchcock's personal favorite film that he made. I can partially understand why — it follows a different template than a lot of his other films with complex characters and a unique story — but it's a little strange that this, of all films, was his favorite. I was a little underwhelmed. Most of the film is certainly good, but far from perfect: The character introductions aren't as effective as they should be, the…
