    A Quiet Place Part II

    ★★★★½

    MOVIES ARE BACK!!!

    Sorry, that’s just my excitement of getting to have cinematic experiences like this again. This isn’t my first trip to a theater since they reopened, but it’s by far my most cathartic. Especially considering last year, A Quiet Place: Part II was the next big movie I was going to see before the pandemic hit. This was the first loss I felt, especially with me having loved the first movie as I expressed in my review of…

    MY THOUGHTS ON THE MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE

    It’s no secret that the most dominant category of film of the 2010s was the comic book movie. And alongside that, inarguably the most dominant franchise of the 2010s was the Marvel Cinematic Universe. With 23 films already released, tons more slated to come out, positive reception for almost all of them, and several being some of the highest-grossing movies of all time, a statement like that is far from hyperbolic. They’ve captured…

    Another Round

    I'm ... really not sure what to make of this one. The directing, acting, editing, and a lot of the story are all top-notch, making it a very investing watch. The premise is great, raising genuine questions as to whether there's actual merit to enacting this theory, yet showing the consequences of pushing too hard while understanding why they push too hard. It starts out quiet and empty, then becomes lively and joyful, then spirals down to a different form…

    INTERSTELLAR: A CINEPHILE AWAKENED

    Throughout the majority of my life so far, I enjoyed movies. There were some that I loved and would re-watch constantly, others I hated and swore to never give another try, and some that went in one ear and out the other. Not too much like now, in that sense. However, I didn’t have the level of admiration and love for the art form as a whole that I have now. You wouldn’t have seen me…

    BLADE RUNNER 2049: A BEATING HEART IN THE HOLLYWOOD MACHINE

    As I had stated many months ago, Interstellar was the film that turned me into a true, if very inexperienced, cinephile. Someone who wanted to follow new films closely, catch up on all that I’d missed, and deeply analyze all of it as well as I could. This also included a closer look at the content creators focused on film, leading me to seek out some of the top names…
