Movie Review: Belle (2022)

Source There have been a few attempts at adapting the classic fairy tale of Beauty and the Beast for a modern audience. While most fall into obscurity, I believe that Belle is a solid attempt. Belle is the anime version that tells the story in a Ready Player One-like future. In this version, there is a game everyone plays that allows you to... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: The Outfit (2022)

Source The Outfit is an interesting twist on the gangster genre that I enjoyed thoroughly. While the run time is a little longer than my attention span can handle, I found little issue sitting through this movie. Mark Rylance gives a magnificent performance, and he deserves your attention. It is hard to write this review because... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: The Longshots (2008)

Source The Longshots is another sports movie. While it isn't bad, if you've seen one sports movie, you've seen them all. Jasmine becomes the school's first female quarterback and the team goes from the worst in the league to the best. If you have time to kill, or like sports movie, it isn't a complete waste...

Movie Review: Miss Potter (2016)

Source I have never been a fan of biopics, but I've been coming around lately. It is safe to assume that maybe it isn't that I don't like biopics, but rather that I have never seen any good ones. I believe that Miss Potter is one of the good ones.   Miss Potter is the dramatization of the life... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: Here After (2020)

I had to think hard about whether or not I liked this movie. While it does have its moments, they are overshadowed by this movie's lazy writing. Here After is one of the laziest romantic comedies I have ever seen.  Here After is about a romance between a ghost and a living woman. The movie deals with relationships,... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: Apartment 1303 (2012)

Source You can watch Apartment 1303 for free on YouTube, but I wouldn't bother. The acting is terrible, the sound is bad, and the story isn't interesting. The movie focuses on two sisters who move into apartment 1303 to get away from a drunk and abusive mother. They live in this apartment at different times, but both... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: Little Big Soldier (2010)

Source Little Big Soldier is one of my favorite Jackie Chan movies. This pseudo-historical twist on an unlikely buddy comedy is a journey you really need to consider. It is a hilarious adventure with a powerful and relevant message. I have watched this movie in both the original Cantonese and its English dubbing. While the dubbing... Continue Reading →

Movie Reviews: The Inherited (2016)

I didn't know Lifetime made horror movies, but here we have the oddest ghost story you probably shouldn’t watch. I had to take multiple breaks to get through this movie, and it wasn't worth it. The acting is very stiff and awkward. This kills all suspense; horror movies rely heavily on good suspenseful buildup. At... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: The Wolf Hour (2019)

Source The Wolf Hour is a depressing and anxiety-inducing representation of the writing process. The film focuses on June and her descent into madness as she attempts to write her next big hit. June has isolated herself from the world, fearing to leave her apartment. The movie does a great job at manifesting June's anxiety, loneliness,... Continue Reading →

Movie Review: Awake (2021

Source Awake is incredibly disappointing. Awake is a horror movie where the monster is human nature. People are no longer able to sleep, and sleep deprivation is slowly killing humanity. Now the race is on to find a cure before humanity goes extinct. The movie focuses on a dysfunctional family and their survival. You get to watch as... Continue Reading →
