NO SPOILERS Walking into the theatre, I had no expectations; I already liked Tom Holland as Spiderman, and I was already familiar with his character. Despite this, I still found myself surprised by how much I liked the movie and how different it was from the typical superhero movie. Of course, it s...

Made in 2006, Little Miss Sunshine is what every heartfelt movie strives to be and contains an original quality that every filmmaker wishes to create. What makes Little Miss Sunshine so original is its ability to mix serious issues such as divorce, bankruptcy, addiction and even suicide with a gentle...

You're bored, and you want to watch a movie, but you don't quite know what genre or what movie you want to watch. Comedy? But not too cliche. Action? But not too... much. Romance? But not too sappy. Mystery? But not too confusing. That's what I was feeling when I decided to watch The Grand Budapest Hotel....

The popular consensus for "Dead Men Tell No Tales" is negative. From what I understand, the Pirates of the Caribbean movies have lost their luster, and audiences are tired of this seemingly neverending series. With each new movie, the ratings have been on a steady decrease. Now, according to critics,...

La La Land Wasn’t That Great

La La Land Wasn’t That Great

After hearing numerous spectacular reviews, I finally got around to watching La La Land--the 2016 musical written and directed by Damien Chazelle. Needless to say, I was disappointed. The movie stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone as a young couple with dreams in Los Angeles (wow!). La La Land (accord...

Review: Gameshow

May 12, 2017

I feel like not too many have heard the 'new' album by Two Door Cinema Club, entitled Gameshow, that came out in October 2016. I can see on Spotify that their most successful song from the album has only garnered up to 16 million listens, which is quite minuscule when compared to the band's most p...

On March 29th, 2017, rapper Logic announced via Twitter that he would be releasing a new album entitled "Everybody," on May 5th. The album was highly anticipated by listeners. Before I start off, the Logic fanbase is probably the most defensive group you'll ever meet, keep that in mind when reading...

If The Giver by Lois Lowry isn't a classic, then neither is Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare. Although The Giver was only published in 1993, the novel truly defined what a (dare I say) perfect dystopia would look like, starring a true utopia. The Giver is everything a dystopian novel should be: thought-provoking, perc...

The Fast and the Furious franchise is going to space in the next two or three movies. You heard it here first folks. The movies are getting more and more ridiculous with each and every installation. I can't even say that's a disappointing fact, sometimes a movie is just an action flick. As much as...

April 13, 2017

So here is a something I do not do often: a movie review. Although I have done many reviews in the past, I have rarely reviewed any films. Especially not any films that were made before the 1990's. However when I saw this film, I instantly loved it. Old movies are some of my favorite things, and Inherit...
