Review: Marie Antoinette (2006) · 6:18am Dec 1st, 2015

In Marie Antoinette, writer/director Sofia Coppola attempts to pain the last queen of France as just another teenage girl, who, by the cruel hand of history, was thrown into a world that she didn't understand.

However, as noble as the endeavor to humanize Marie Antoinette might be, Coppola fails spectacularly, creating a film that is high on kitschy style, but absolutely empty of substance or insight into Marie Antoinette.

Review: Magnolia (1999) · 10:16pm Nov 11th, 2015

Paul Thomas Anderson's third feature marked the peak of his increasingly complex ensemble dramas, marking the exceptional maturation and expansion of the stylistic and storytelling tropes he first properly explored in Boogie Nights.

Review: The Man Who Wasn't There (2001) · 11:43pm Jun 10th, 2016

The Coen Brothers, eclectic as always, take on film noir in this hyper subdued, intentionally self serious yet absurd deconstruction of the film noir genre, where, in playing the standard tropes and motifs of the genre dead straight, stretching them to the point where they snap back on themselves. It's a dense, cerebral film, and one that, while lacking the gonzo charms of, say, O Brother, Where Art Thou? or The Hudsucker Proxy, still manages to be a fascinating work of art, and a

Review: Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy (2011) · 4:51am Jun 22nd, 2015

Tomas Alfredson's intensely cerebral cinematic adaptation of John le Carré's equally cerebral and complex film is a worthwhile exercise in subdued character studies. It might not be the most intense or gripping of espionage films, but it makes up for it by having top notch acting, and wonderfully atmospheric direction.

Review: Spectre (2015) (Contains Spoilers...) · 3:17am Dec 26th, 2015

Is this the worst Bond film ever?

Yes. End of review.

...

Okay fine, I'll review the movie properly, since, ya know, that's what I do, I guess.

So anyways, in the continuing saga of me sticking it to The Man, I downloaded a DVD Screener of the most recent entry of the seemingly endless Bond franchise, Spectre.

Review: Boogie Nights (1997) · 10:02pm Nov 7th, 2015

Paul Thomas Anderson's second film is a fascinating, intentionally sprawling examination of the lives of those sucked into the California porn industry in the late 1970s through the early 1980s, and not only provides a unique lens in which to view the time period, also manages to humanize these characters, while still highlighting the exploitative and demeaning elements of the industry, coupled with the allure of stardom and fame that it promises.

Review: Ben-Hur (1959) · 7:58pm Nov 16th, 2015

In yet another example of a film that provides the bedrock of my cinematic life experience, Ben-Hur still stands as one of the most tremendous, grandiose and effective epics to come out of Hollywood, and also stands as a film with a remarkably moving story, and possibly the best religiously inclined film ever made.

Best Films of 2015...for Me · 5:24pm Dec 30th, 2015

An obviously very subjective list of what I felt were the best films of 2015 for me.

Obviously, with two days still left to the year, I can probably squeeze in two or three more movies before the year is out, but given the unlikeliness of that, this is probably gonna be my final list.

Feel free to list your own below...

1. Mad Max: Fury Road
2. Inside Out
3. Star Wars: The Force Awakens
4. Room
5. The Revenant
6. Beasts of No Nation

Review: Batman: Mask of the Phantasm (1993) · 7:29pm Apr 15th, 2016

Batman: Mask of the Phantasm is a Batman film that finally, in many ways, focuses on the human side of Bruce Wayne, and how his dauntless pursuit for justice affects him as a human being and in his personal life, all without skimping out on some of the best Batman action sequences you'll probably ever see, and bringing a new character into the fold who is able to stand on their own as a fully realized character.

OC Apprentice Fifth Pre-Challenge Announcement · 12:30am Mar 6th, 2016

Veggie slumped down against a wall of boxes. She was lost. No, she was more than lost. This wasn't a basement, this was a storage unit if anything! This was more like a warehouse than a basement! It would take years for a group of the best explorers to make their way out of this horrid maze. Throughout her journey, Veggie found some interesting things. Antique weapons, old books from almost every era in history and artwork from some of the greatest artists Earth has seen. But all her

Review: Burn After Reading (2008) · 8:43pm Jan 18th, 2016

Burn After Reading is the Coen Brothers sarcastic and intentionally screwball riff on the notoriously straight laced genre of spy thriller. Intentionally taking the multitudes of tropes and plot points that fill the genre and playing them for pure absurdity, the film revels in it's madness and lack of logic, in a way that really, only a Coen Brothers film can.

Review: The Wolf of Wall Street (2013) · 1:18am Nov 15th, 2015

Martin Scorsese's madcap, three hour whirligig explosive expose on the sheer debauchery and excess of the Wall Street life, as told through the equally debauched and excessive life of Jordan Belfort not only manages to be a wildly FUN ride, but also a biting satire on the most classic of American foibles: Greed.

Review: The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance (1962) · 5:17am Nov 6th, 2015

John Ford's penultimate Western serves as a dark deconstruction of the mythology of the Old West, and a mediation on how the difference between fact and myth is often a thin, blurry line, easily lost to the mists of time.
