  • Minari

    Minari

    Once again, I’m at a loss for words. I feel like I say that often, but in this case, Minari has left me speechless. I’ve been highly anticipating this film ever since I started hearing praise late last year and am glad that I finally got to be in on the hype. Having deeply personal connections to the story plays a huge factor in my love and admiration for this film, but setting these feelings aside, Minari is still a…

    The Shawshank Redemption

    Wow, wow, wow. I’m so glad that I randomly decided to watch this. To say that The Shawshank Redemption is masterful is cutting this film short, as this is undeniably one of the best movies I’ve seen in a long time. Looking back, it’s crazy how this was a box office flop, and while it was nominated, it didn’t receive any awards.

    The Shawshank Redemption is longer than a typical movie that I enjoy watching. However, it kept me engaged…

    Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy

    Some comedies work better than others, and Anchorman has its moments throughout, however, I found a lot of the absurd humor to be unsuccessful in sticking the landing. McKay has always been a hit or miss, more so leaning towards the latter, and Anchorman falls right in the middle of my enjoyment of his films. It also, unfortunately, doesn’t help that I don’t find Ferrell as funny as many others do. Nevertheless, regarding a movie where I can watch and turn off my brain, Anchorman was a great choice for just that.

  • Punch-Drunk Love

    Punch-Drunk Love

    It’s impossible not to respect the immense talent and dedication to storytelling that PTA exhibits throughout his filmography. Unfortunately, there always seems to be something missing within his films that often leads to my disconnection from the story and characters, ultimately hindering my overall enjoyment. Regarding Punch-Drunk Love, there’s no denying that this is a well-made feature from PTA and Sandler, but I was never sucked into the film as other love stories have been able to achieve. I really want to love PTA’s films, but I’m always left underwhelmed and feeling left out of the hype.

  • Judas and the Black Messiah

    Judas and the Black Messiah

    Judas and the Black Messiah is one of those films that has left me at a loss for words, as it was far better than I could have ever imagined. I cannot articulate how important this film is, and its powerful message needs to be seen by the masses. With a runtime of a little over 2 hours, this film surprisingly immediately sucks the viewer into the story and is an incredibly fast-paced viewing experience. My words cannot do it…

  • The Suicide Squad

    The Suicide Squad

    The Suicide Squad is exactly the kind of movie I was expecting to get back in 2016, and Gunn far exceeded my expectations of what he was going to be able to accomplish with his DC endeavor. Perfectly distancing itself from other DCEU films (by not taking itself too seriously), as well as MCU films (by not constantly trying to set up the next event), this makes for the perfect standalone flick that will surely succeed, as it delivers on…
