Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

Ghost in the Shell is the American, live-action adaptation of Masamune Shirow’s original Japanese comic, Manga, and Mamoru Oshii’s classic 1995 animated film of the same name. I have been looking forward to this film for quite some time. Not only because I was a fan of the original animated…

All Good Things Must Come to an End: Logan Movie Review

Monday, March 13th, 2017

This is it. After seventeen long years of playing the iconic Wolverine, Hugh Jackman has decided it was time to hang his hat. If Logan is the last of Jackman’s Wolverine then the end couldn’t have been more perfect. Logan is an action-packed, yet emotional rollercoaster of a movie, that…

Monday, February 6th, 2017

In 1999, director and screenwriter M. Night Shyamalan surprised audiences and critics with his supernatural horror and thriller film, The Sixth Sense.

La La Land Review

Monday, January 30th, 2017

Over the winter break, I had the opportunity to go see La La Land in theaters, which was a very surprising and pleasant experience. You see, I am not the biggest fan of musicals. I think they are cheesy and unrealistic, which is why I didn’t have any expectations for…

Mascots Review

Thursday, October 20th, 2016

Back in 2000, Christopher Guest released his very hilarious mockumentary Best in Show. The movie focused on various dog owners and their journey to the national dog show. This movie made me a fan of Guest’s humor. He does not try to dumb down jokes for the sake of the…

Samuel L. Jackson, Climate Change and You

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015

Last weekend’s box office was a stacked one, pitting Kingsman: The Secret Service against popular titles like Spongebob and Fifty Shades of Grey—those of which already have a dedicated fan base. That being said, Kingsman isn’t exactly original. In fact, it is a comic book adaption, but general audiences aren’t…

Pierce Brosnan is well practiced at playing a spy. He was, of course, one of the smoothest James Bonds to ever smile slyly on the screen. But now Pierce Brosnan is trading the sly and charming spy-guise of James Bond for that of Peter Deveraux, the antihero spy at the…

A Belated Review: “The Purge: Anarchy”

Friday, August 22nd, 2014

People who are not safe during the annual purge: the ice cream guy, your neighbor who mows the lawn at seven in the morning, the mail man who throws your packages from Amazon. In all seriousness, The “Purge Anarchy” places our modern day society into a new world order, ran by…
