REVIEW: Silence (2017)

Martin Scorsese’s passion project, for what has been supposedly the last two decades, is finally here. The subject of many lawsuits for Scorsese as he continued to delay the making of this film, to make other great films such as ‘The Aviator’, ‘Gangs of New…

REVIEW: Assassin’s Creed (2017)

WRITTEN BY NOAH JACKSON There is a curse running amok in Hollywood, and it has made every video game based movie to come out of their suck, ever since the first dawn of these movies, including titles like ‘Super Mario Bros.’ and the ‘Resident Evil’…

REVIEW: Collateral Beauty (2016)

Once upon a time, in a composition/language class, we were studying fallacies of logic, in other words, things not to do in writing and argumentation. One of these fallacies was “overly sentimental appeals,” which basically means don’t take the sappy route in making an argument…

REVIEW: Allied (2016)

‘Allied’ features some of the best talent working today, with two great leads in the form of Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard, and a legendary director in Robert Zemeckis, known for classics such as ‘Forrest Gump’, ‘Back to the Future’, and ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit?’ The…

REVIEW: Moonlight (2016)

Barry Jenkins’ ‘Moonlight’ burst onto the scene this awards season, grabbing everyone’s attention. Debuting in less than five screens, the film still broke the box office, meaning that not only was there mass attention coming out of festivals, but the wider release into 650 screens…

REVIEW: Doctor Strange (2016)

‘Doctor Strange’ had the potential of being the best Marvel character we’ve seen on screen so far. He’s got the humor and arrogance that we love in Iron Man, the brute power that makes Thor and Hulk appealing, and even got the sense of duty and…

REVIEW: The Accountant (2016)

Dear people who think Ben Affleck is still “Ben Afflicted”, think again. After proving himself as an interesting and accomplished director with movies like ‘The Town’, ‘Argo’, and ‘Gone Baby Gone’, further proving his acting chops in the first two of those mentioned, and giving an admirable Batman…

REVIEW: Café Society (2016)

A large cast, larger than life setting, and a big-talent writer/director should spell success, however Woody Allen’s latest had one of the messiest trailers that I’ve seen in a long time. That could explain why the film is something of a box office flop. Additionally, it…

REVIEW: Free State of Jones (2016)

‘Free State of Jones’ stars Matthew McConaughey (‘Dallas Buyers Club’), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (‘Belle’), Mahershala Ali (‘House of Cards’), and Keri Russell in a civil war set drama. Within the Revolution of the Confederacy in the U.S.A, there is a band of farmers and runaway slaves that felt…

REVIEW: The Wicker Man (2006)

Let us go back in time to a simpler time. A time when Adam Sandler wasn’t peddling shit to the masses and looking suicidal whilst doing it, and a time where the world had yet to experience Michael Bay’s ‘Transformers’, and Nicolas Cage was going bankrupt as…

REVIEW: Don’t Breathe (2016)

The summer season of 2016 has been a fairly disappointing experience for film enthusiasts like myself. It arguably reached its peak in May with ‘Captain America: Civil War’, and ended with the disappointing experience that was ‘Suicide Squad’. Along the way, we’ve seen many mediocre…

REVIEW: Independence Day: Resurgence (2016)

Full disclaimer: I have not seen the original ‘Independencd Day’s from 1996. But, to be honest, I think having that movie in mind would make this one even worse. ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ stars old favorites such as Jeff Goldblum and Bill Pullman as well as…
