    The Green Knight

    The film ends and the theater is silent. No one immediately stands up to leave. There is a collective air of "What the actual fuck just happened?"

    When movies end like this, I always know I've seen something extraordinary. Sometimes the extraordinary is pretentious try hard material, but most often it is breathtaking, original art.

    The latter is the case with The Green Knight. I had no idea what happened after my second post-lockdown theater experience, and needed a solid…

    Are you also afraid that A.I. one day will be in charge of all of our books, media, and television? Are you scared by how much the Netflix algorithm already controls?

    From the second Van Halen's Jump record drop opens the film, these thoughts raced through my head. I can just picture Spielberg sitting in his armchair saying "Siri, generate the top Billboard songs of the 80s for my next motion picture soundtrack. You Make My Dreams Come True by…

Why do I feel like I'm watching the cut scene to a zombie survival video game? Hell is breaking loose at the mental asylum, what inventory will my character receive to battle the demons?

    Pretty soon I relaxed. I remembered a master of the craft has the wheel. James Wan is…

    Ok, I'm sorry. The last time I watched Saving Private Ryan I walked away dissatisfied. I found it sanctimoniously patriotic. A much too American film for a viewer wanting more objectivity.

    Let's flush the take from my last viewing down the drain. I remember seeing it last while recovering from a broken ankle. I definitely was not in the best of spirits and I let that influence my opinion. Saving Private Ryan is a very American film, but that is…

    Woah. Did I expect this to be good? Not really. Is it just as good as the first if not, dare I say, better? You bet!!

    The original still ranks higher for me at the moment, but with time that may change. Wow. I am always apprehensive following a favorite film with its sequel, especially if a different director is involved. Halloween II quickly quelled that fear.

    Rick Rosenthal does a fantastic job. Halloween II is gorier than its predecessor.…
