    Get yourselves a mom that will punt-kick other children for you. 

    Personally, I’ve never been that big of a fish guy. Yeah yeah, I know it’s a hearty source of calcium, phosphorus and what have you, but until the accuser is proven wrong, I say fish is a mid to bottom-tier protein in terms of taste. Whether it’s tuna, cod, halibut, etc., I usually can’t stand them. I’m not even a fish and chips guy; the beer-batter is icky! However,…

    Happy Together

    ★★★★

    Screened at The Frida Cinema

    I appreciate movies that give into the concept that we need conflict in order to feel alive because I genuinely think it’s one of the truest statements one could accept; in hindsight, we’re all just pretentious assholes who ignorantly stir shit up to create connection with others, therefore insinuating purpose, no matter how toxic the actions to get there may come to be. Wong Kar-wai’s Happy Together is trying to dig at this concept with…

    All Light, Everywhere

    ★★★★

    I just got glasses for the first time ever during the beginning of this year, and this documentary has only made my vision feel even more feeble than before. Thanks, Theo. 

    Technology is the new world, the new perspective, the new “see”. All Light, Everywhere suggests we aren’t just recapturing our world with cameras, but creating a new one in doing so. These new perspectives only then propose new answers yet unfortunately new questions; it can easily lie to us…

  • The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

    The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

    ★½

    Regardless, I still want a water-bed.

    This may be the best Conjuring film in terms of lighting/coloring (as long as it isn’t a daytime shot) and Michael Chaves can mime James Wan’s style all he wants while even surprisingly adding to it with a few instances of mild creativity, but it’s not enough to save the biggest snooze-fest of 2021 thus far. The biggest offense that I can claim when it comes to The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do…

    Once Upon a Time… in Hollywood

    ★★★★

    Warning: This review will contain excessive amounts of the f-word in the spirit of Tarantino.

    I remember seeing the second trailer for Tarantino’s ninth (but technically tenth) film way back in May of 2019 and thinking to myself “I have no clue what this movie is going to be about, but I’m cheer to see that the marketers have decided to not give anything away!” So, I just saw the full, two-hour-and-forty-five-minute-long movie…and I have to say…I still have no…

  • Joker

    Joker

    ★★★½

    Wow, I have…so much…to say about this

    Todd Phillips’s Joker is one of the most forbidding pieces of cinematic design to come to mind especially in recent years. Using its visually repulsive presentation to seize uncanny validity and to strike audiences worldwide of the truth about a terrorizing infection that’s leaked into the veins of every individual around the world, this film rivets its audience through all the grimmest corners of life before eventually abandoning them, pretending like they don’t…
