The 1 to 5 on movies: Love and Monsters

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 […]

The Descent movie recommendation

I haven’t done a recommendation for a while now and there’s a good reason for that; I like going back to great movies I’ve seen, but I’ll always prefer to see something new or something I’ve yet to see. I’ll occasionally go back for a watch along someone who hasn’t seen a movie or because […]

Deliver us from Evil review

There are so many new movies coming out lately; even excluding the theater releases (because I still can’t go to the cinema where I live), Netflix alone released heavy hitters like Concrete Cowboys, Thunder Force, Stowaway, amongst others. Broadening the search to international cinema, Netflix alone, has released interesting movies like Ride or Die, Homunculus, […]

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 […]

Palm Springs review

As the world comes closer to ending our hellish reality of being home, non-stop, for the past year (plus some change), I decided to gain strength and patiently wait my turn to get vaccinated, by watching a movie about a never-ending time-loop; that should take my mind off things! Palm Springs is co-written and directed […]

Possessor Uncut movie review

Doing a routine search on Possessor will show you the conflicting reception movies tend to receive occasionally; the movie has had an overwhelmingly positive reception from critics and middling reviews from fans. Possessor deserves this split; this isn’t a case of critics wanting something that the movie does not want to be or fans “not […]

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 […]
