Hostiles

Hostiles is one of those movies that I really didn’t know a lot about going in. I just knew that I was going to have time for a movie yesterday and that one looked interesting enough. I knew that it had Christian Bale and I knew that it was a western, but I really had no idea…

The Post

The Post is the newest Spielberg film and it stars two legendary actors in Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks. It is about the events that lead up to the exposing of the United States’ cover-up of the state of the Vietnam War. The Washington Post’s decision to publish the information on the matter is essentially what…

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Though this is the second film (the first coming in 1995) that is loosely based the 1981 children’s book “Jumanji”, the films are made by different companies and hardly bear any resemblance to the book. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was directed by Jake Kasdan, a fairly underrated director who is most known for producing the TV…

My Top 10 Movies of 2017 + Awards

What year in the movies, huh? From highly anticipated large-scale productions to lower budget films that surprised me, 2017 has development been another great year to be a movie enthusiast. Just like last year, ranking my top 10 movies of the year has been a tough task. I have been constantly changing the order, re-reading my…

The Greatest Showman

As the year in movies is quickly winding down, I am trying to watch all of the movies that I think have potential to make it on my Top 10 list for 2017. Unfortunately, I don’t have a ton of time on my hands so I am going to have to keep this rather brief. The…

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Spoiler Review)

I have now seen Star Wars: The Last Jedi twice and I think I have all the information that I need to make an accurate review of this film. Hopefully, most people have seen the movie by now but for those of you who have not yet seen, I have left the spoiler-free section and I would…

Coco

Coco is the 19th animated feature film released by Pixar Animated Studios and is directed by Lee Unkrich along with co-director Adrian Molina. When I started to see advertising for this movie about two years ago, I was immediately a little bit nervous. This is because of a similar style of movie that came out in…

Murder on the Orient Express

I have always enjoyed a good murder mystery. From the first trailer I watched, I was immediately intrigued about Murder on the Orient Express. However, as I have seen the lackluster reviews come in, I have become more and more skeptical about this movie. Is this movie as exciting as the star-studded cast that it boasts of?

Justice League

Well, here we go again. Justice League is the movie that we have all been waiting but for all the wrong reasons. After the bombshell in the form of Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice that released in 2016, many had very low expectations for this film. However, regardless of how bleak the outlook of the movie may seem,…

Thor: Ragnarok

Thor Ragnarok is the third Thor movie we have but I’ll be the first to tell you that this installment doesn’t resemble the other two in the least. In fact, it more closely resembles the Guardians of the Galaxy movies than anything else. I was definitely worried that this movie would be way too over-the-top with…

Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Kingsman: The Golden Circle is the sequel to the 2015 spy movie that starred Taron Egerton and Colin Firth saving the world from in a type of way that we have never really seen before in spy movies. I didn’t particularly love the original Kingsman because it just could never get around the satirical nature that the movie embodies….

Wind River

Wind River is a murder-mystery that takes place at Wind River Indian reserve located in northern Wyoming. Written and directed by Taylor Sheridan, this movie attempts to bring to light a real issue involving neglect and unfair treatment of native Americans in reserves such as the one portrayed in the movie. It is the final movie…
