Maria Versus Furie

Furie wins. Thank you for reading! Once again, I am inclined to compare and contrast two similar movies with their difference being one works and the other fails at almost everything it tries. This time, I’ll focus on two martial-arts, female-lead action movies with roughly the same plot and same “limitations”, but end up with […]

Super Me discussion

Super Me is one of the latest Netflix Original movies to be released. As a general rule of thumb, I always go into something with an open-mind, but Netflix Originals have soured me many times before so I’m always warry and keep my expectations in check – which could be the reason I am less […]

Sound of Metal movie and acting discussion

The upcoming Oscar 2021 nominations now revealed and, as predicted by many, one of the standout movies was Sound of Metal earning six nominations (best picture, actor, supporting actor, original screenplay, sound, and film editing) and ending up joint second for most nominations behind the ludicrous 10 nominations earned by Mank. I put off watching […]

Another round: Exploring sadness and life through alcohol

Apparently, each year, there’s a study that determines the “happiest” country in the world; I found that notion absurd. How can you objectively determine that? Obviously, there are many factors that theoretically contribute to one’s wellbeing and prospects in life – like low unemployment rates, a high GDP of a country, statistical data surrounding subjects […]

How Promising Young Woman and I care a lot compare to each other

Paul Blart: Mall Cop and Observe and Report; White House Down and Olympus has fallen; Antz and A Bug’s life; my personal favorite, Christine (2016) and Kate plays Christine. Movies released almost back-to-back, and are either very similar or literally about the same thing; the discussion in such instances has always been centered around which […]

The 1 to 5 on movies: Red Dot

This format is a shorter, more to the point, off-shot of the normal review/op-eds I normally do. A ranking will be given at the end from a scale that starts at (from the lowest to the highest): Bad – meh – fine – good – great. Anything not appropriate for these “scores” will likely warrant […]

A movie about nothing: The Assistant movie review

As I watched “The Assistant”, written and directed by Kitty Green, that famous pitch of Seinfeld kept swirling in my mind: “A show about nothing”. Lots of creators would call that worthless, some would be excited by the prospect yet lost in the directionless pitfalls of the premise, but there are a few that would […]

Kind of controversial movies of 2020: Call of the wild and The Hunt

2020, in terms of movies, had a few controversies that honestly flew over my head on most occasions; two stuck out to me as very silly, so I wanted to check them out before getting to the more pressing stuff on my list. First, let me refresh your memory on what the controversies were all […]

A couple of great concepts and bad executions: The platform and In the shadow of the moon

A movie’s quality can range from perfect to trash, in my opinion, those two extremes are the most compelling; a perfect movie can change your life, your outlook on certain things, and provide an experience that you won’t forget and will stay with you for the rest of your days; a trash movie can shape […]
