June Weekend Flicks Part 2: 12 Years as a Slave, Deadpool, Air Force One, Annihilation, etc.

Back to it… let’s finish the list (for now)! 12 Years as a Slave (2016) – Drama, Timepiece – Score: (9/10): This is a film I went into viewing quite ignorantly, to be honest, as in I had no idea what to expect. I was shocked I hadn’t gotten around to seeing it after itsContinue reading “June Weekend Flicks Part 2: 12 Years as a Slave, Deadpool, Air Force One, Annihilation, etc.”

June Weekend Flicks Part 1: The Fugitive, Cloud Atlas, My Cousin Vinny, and more.

It’s been another weird month of quarantine, indeed. But at least the weather here in New England has been for the most part, excellent. No complaints on my end.

Subtle and Not so Subtle Homages to Psychedelics in Film

I have wanted to make a post on this for awhile now because I find it fascinating how directors can portray the psychedelic experience through the medium of a screen.

My Favorite (and Least Favorite) Films of 2019

2019 was a good year for film. Not that it was the best year by any means, but it was certainly beneficial for the film industry.

If you’reContinue reading “My Favorite (and Least Favorite) Films of 2019”

Ari Aster: Already A Legend with Only Two Films

I was first introduced to the Sophomore director, Ari Aster, with Hereditary a few years back in 2018. I have definitely stepped up my horror game in the past few years, which is for a variety of reasons. Mostly as a result of Sam and myself being incredibly into psychological thrillers, which led into aContinue reading “Ari Aster: Already A Legend with Only Two Films”

May Weekend Flicks: What I’ve Watched Lately (Part 2)

Burning (2018) – Mystery/Drama – Score: 7 I have been putting off watching this for some time but received several recommendations to watch recently. This is a beautifully made film – long, drawn-out shots with even simple interior locations showing significant detail and character just from the way it was filmed. I thought the plotContinue reading “May Weekend Flicks: What I’ve Watched Lately (Part 2)”

Several of these are horror/thrillers which Sam and I watch regularly, others are a nice blend of animation, action, and drama films. films and a some very recent productions added up to some quality May film viewings. I’ll continue adding to thisContinue reading “May Weekend Flicks: What I’ve Watched Lately (Part 1)”
