Patriotism, or The Rite of Love and Death

Spoilers Patriotism feels like a true look into what unwavering love can be and lets you decide if it's worth it. Based on the true short story of the same name written by renowned and infamous Japanese writer Yukio Mishima, who also happens to star in and direct the film, is the story of a...

The Legend of the Drunken Master

Also known as Drunken Master II, this Jackie Chan martial arts spectacle film is exciting, beautifully choreographed and filmed, but drags when the story tries to becomes the center of attention. Drunken Master II is lauded as one of Jackie Chan's best movies, and its easy to see why. With all the impressive, sometimes dangerous... Continue Reading →

Manhattan

SPOILERS Skip to the end for a quick spoiler free recommendation After finishing Woody Allen's Manhattan I immediately realized, I had been deftly fooled by every character, and I loved it! This movie is very good at stringing you along, just as many of the characters are strung along by one another throughout the film.... Continue Reading →

Baraka

Preah Khan Temple, Angkor, Cambodia Tokyo, Japan Ganges River, India Caipo Village, Para, Brazil Rio De Janero, Brazil I needed to start this review with just a few stills from the movie. I think they are enough of an endorsement on their own, of this films quality and beauty, to make someone want to watch... Continue Reading →

Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?

SPOILERS! I greatly enjoyed the first hour of this movie, although I feel as it got more confrontational the coherence, and subsequently my enjoyment, significantly suffered. I know this movie is and was originally a play and its pretty obvious just based on how the pacing of the film works. I don't really feel like... Continue Reading →

Gosford Park

SPOILERS Dreadfully boring!! The movie portrays the reveal of who-dunnit as if you care for any of the characters but there’s just not a reason to. This movie was terrible, all the characters sucked and while the actors played them well it’s like each character was an extra in a different movie. And I don't... Continue Reading →

The Night of the Hunter

This review contains spoilers! The Night of the Hunter is surely a great of its era and while I don't think it itself is an amazing movie to watch, it certainly was a trailblazer for movie villains. I doubt I could say anything that hasn't already been said about what happens in this movie, so... Continue Reading →

Under The Skin

This review contains spoilers! Under the Skin got under my skin at times with how fucking creepy it was and sadly with how boring it got. I really really enjoyed the first 45 minutes with Scarlett Johansson luring men into her dark goo pit. It almost felt like a weird documentary and it made me... Continue Reading →

The King of Comedy

This review contains spoilers! This movie is very, very reminiscent of Taxi Driver perhaps at times even more unnerving. I think that in some ways Rupert Pupkin is the antithesis of Taxi Driver's Travis Bickle. Where Travis is quiet and brooding Rupert is loud and demanding, Rupert is also significantly more selfish than Travis. Travis... Continue Reading →
