    Living Eternal

    For the past 13 years, Marvel Studios has gone from being promising with Phase One, to being borderline terrible in the last few. In Phase One the emphasis was on telling a singular story to service the whole later, but it’s recessed into focusing on the bigger picture rather than the smaller. This has forced their films to adhere to a specific image of what they are to maintain brand identity amidst an era where everything backed by…

    Dune

    ★★★★★

    From the lush and flowing greens and rivers of Caladan, home to House Atreides, to the sandy shores of Arrakis housing the native Fremen people, Dune is a monumental achievement too big for your home theater. Bolstered by an impressive and extraordinarily talented cast, unforgettable visual effects work, and a Hans Zimmer score for the record books, Dune seems to be setting up the next pop culture craze despite adapting just the first half of the novel. For how cliche…

    Avengement

    ★★★

    Perfectly adequate for my tastes.

    Don’t mind action showcases at all, and Scott Adkins could wipe the floor with just about every action hero ever, but it only got me so far. I appreciate an unconventional, fragmented narrative built around tethering your mind to the body, and it builds to a perfectly confined conclusion. I just really didn’t care by that point because it’s 90 minutes of violence inside of a perfectly fine story. Maybe it’s a Jesse Johnson thing, or maybe I’m just not into action movies as much as I used to be.

  • For All Mankind

    For All Mankind

    ★★★★½

    Should be mandatory and essential viewing. 

    Archival footage laced with the voices of the people involved in a historic event. Their voices loom over the images as the moon does the Earth. An outlet of information with a story to tell, jokes to crack within the limits of a spacecraft that be. Absolutely hypnotizing in it’s chronicling of events and capturing of the recesses of space. 

    The vast corners of space and how unlimited they are in relation to the limitations of a space pod. The people within look amongst the stars and back at us, examining how finite we are in the infinite.

    Snow Steam Iron

    ★★★★½

    If Denis Villeneuve wasn't the best film-maker working today, Zack Snyder would have the best shot selection in all of Hollywood. This guy shot this movie on an iPhone and it looks better than most movies released on a budget 1,000 times the price of an iPhone X! Snow Steam Iron is a firm reminder that Snyder is one of the purest Hollywood visionaries working today. 

    In Snow Steam Iron we see a corrupt system in the snow laced streets of New…

    Boyhood

    ★★★★½

    Quite possibly the most ambitious film of 2014, Richard Linklater's, 'Boyhood' is a stunning work of art and one of cinema's finest achievements. This film is shot over 12 years of time from the years 2002-2014, following a boy by the name of Mason (played by Ellar Coltrane) throughout this time span.

    To be quite honest, I don't think I've ever resonated with a film more in my entire life. Following this boy growing up was absolutely incredible to watch,…
