    I'm so proud this film exists.

  • Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City

    Resident Evil: Welcome to Raccoon City

    ★★★

    Pure buttery popcorn delight that offers the same campiness, horror, gore, and cringe as the games. Should have just been adapting one of the games instead of two, but given what is presented, ended up feeling like a speedrun mashup of Resident Evil 1 and 2 (should have been just game 1 or 2 & 3, for a more concentrated story).

    I don't mind the liberty in changing up Leon's character to being more reckless rookie (makes him standout from the…

    Halloween Kills

    ★½

    Halloween Kills. Directed by David Gordon Green (Halloween 2018, Pineapple Express, Joe). Taking place just seconds after the end of Halloween 2018, we find Michael Myers alive and free, once again on a killing rampage. But now the townspeople of Haddonfield, fueled up from the pain and suffering from the events of Michael's first attack in 1978, join together to find and kill Michael for good.

    In Halloween 2018, we are given a dive into Laurie's traumatic psyche, and the…

    No Time to Die

    ★★★★

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

    This might get too lengthy or become unfocused, but I seemingly just haven't felt this motivated to type out anything for a film in a long while, so sorry beforehand.

    Every trip I made in my pre-middle school days to my grandparents, my grandfather would always play the James Bond films on VHS, until we got into the Brosnan era, and my instant reminiscent to the Goldeneye game that I played with my local neighborhood friends every weekend (until the…

  • Fleetwood Mac: The Dance

    Fleetwood Mac: The Dance

    ★★★★★

    This concert happened the day I was born. And ironically has alot of my favorite versions of Fleetwood Mac's songs.

    This version of I'm so Afraid goes so hard, without a doubt the superior version.

  • The Green Knight

    The Green Knight

    ★★★★

    The Green Knight. Directed by David Lowery (A Ghost Story, The Old Man & The Gun, Pete's Dragon). A new adaptation of the Arthurian medieval tale of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, a story of one young knight's quest to define his servitude to honor, in spite of uncertain death.

    Going into the film, I have previously read the 14th century old poem of the original (or whatever version my high school senior year English teacher had me read), so…

  • Old

    Old

    ★★★½

    Old. Directed by M. Night Shyamalan (The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, Signs, The Village, The Happening). On a tropical getaway, a group of people find themselves rapidly aging on a hidden beach, that they can't escape from.

    I won't get into spoilers or too much discussion into the story, but it would be very easy to nitpick and tear apart the glaring plot holes or weird logic of the film. But Shyamalan's cinematic sensibilities through the film's gritty sound design and…

  • Cruella

    Cruella

    ★★½

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

    Playing the opening of Black Sabbath's The Wizard and then fading into The Rolling Stone's Sympathy of the Devil, was the most heinous music edit I've heard in a movie in quite some time.

    Bonus half star for opening the movie on some classic Supertramp and the overall fun performances.

  • Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

    I just finished watching a fan edit of this film known as Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker ASCENDANT. While the core story of the film is unchangeable, this version of the film, made by tons of fans, re-edits the film with addition VFX shots, re-arranges scenes, and even adds lines, but done in a high quality fashion.

    Many aspects of the film don't seem so uncanny now, like the pacing, the heavy blue color grade over everything and less…

  • Terminator: Dark Fate

    Terminator: Dark Fate

    ★★★

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

    I will say that while I find some of the concepts present in every Terminator film since T2 are intriguing, none of them ever really hit the mark as those first two.

    Still Dark Fate I feel is one that finds a balance of the nostalgia of the first two with its own unique spin to the Terminator franchise. Bringing back Linda Hamilton was a nice touch and felt as if she was right at home as Sarah Conner again.…
