Does The Silence Of The Lambs Ride The Performance Of Anthony Hopkins? (A Review)

My new interest in the fictional killer Hannibal Lecter has led me to not only watching the show Hannibal, but also deciding to watch all of the movies with the character. Along with that, I have also ordered the collection of books by Thomas Harris where the character originated so that I can also read them. The best thing about all of these various forms … Continue reading Does The Silence Of The Lambs Ride The Performance Of Anthony Hopkins? (A Review)

The Devil All The Time is Bafflingly Bad (a Review)

In the Babysitter post (it’s good- you should read it) I mentioned the impossible balance Netflix must walk with its two heads. The content head, having material enough people will want to watch, but has to be diverse but unified; along the production head that must find stories they think good enough to fit on their platform while also confirming to their brand. Well that … Continue reading The Devil All The Time is Bafflingly Bad (a Review)

Unpregnant more like Abor(what? What do you mean I can’t have that word in my title?That’s just what the movie is about. Okay, nevermind) – a Review

Despite being apart of the same network, it seems like HBOMax has been struggling to find programming to put on their service. That makes the edition of original movies interesting, especially simple road trip movies. Though, like romantic comedies, they are a staple of cinema and a good palet cleanser. A movie that can be made for any age group really. It’s almost genius unless … Continue reading Unpregnant more like Abor(what?

Two Nights with The Babysitter (a Review of Babysitter and Babysitter Killer Queen)

Netflix as a studio is strange when it is compared to Netflix the streaming service because their needs are so different. Netflix streaming needs to have content, their own or someone else’s, available to share and watch that is so diverse that anyone could find anything to watch. Meanwhile Netflix the Studio has to make movies they think will be good and watched, but also … Continue reading Two Nights with The Babysitter (a Review of Babysitter and Babysitter Killer Queen)

The Broken Hearts Gallery can Heal (a Review)

Despite being a Hollywood staple it always struck me as odd how prevalent romantic comedies are in cinemas. Not to say they don’t have artistic merit, again Mean Girls is my favorite film of all time, but just that they don’t feel like they ever truly use the medium of cinema’s scope and scale in meaningful ways. Probably going back to how they historically were … Continue reading The Broken Hearts Gallery can Heal (a Review)

Superman: Man of Tomorrow is a Great Superman Origin (a Review)

It is still so impressive that Warner Brothers and DC have continued to release direct to video animated films based on their characters. Something that is so utterly 2000s surviving this long shows some skill and ability along with ranges of storytelling and chabges in art style over the years help show how the teams have evolved and change. They already went through one of … Continue reading Superman: Man of Tomorrow is a Great Superman Origin (a Review)

Mulan 2020 Misses the Point (a Review)

The animated Mulan film is one of my favorite Disney and normal films of all time. It’s got amazing art, characters, the best Disney song until Moana released, and a strong message for not just woman, but people of all types who are held back for one reason or another. That made the announcement and production of a live action version both suspect and intriguing … Continue reading Mulan 2020 Misses the Point (a Review)

New Mutants is an Experience We’ve Been Waiting for A Long Time (a Review)

New Mutants is an experience so many of us have been waiting for, even if you don’t care about the movie, because it’s a return to the cinema. That is, on top of a movie that has been in delayed and development for years, even after being completed. That makes it all the more exciting and terrifying to see how if it lives up to … Continue reading New Mutants is an Experience We’ve Been Waiting for A Long Time (a Review)

Should Movie Theaters Even Open?

We live in a capitalist society, captalism means expansion through the use of money. We want movies and experience them on big screens, movie studios want money so they’ll put them on big screen. There is no ethical consumption under capitalism, so yes, based purely on an economic perspective they need to be open. They’re a major employer across the world after all. But that’s … Continue reading Should Movie Theaters Even Open?
