SHOTGUN WEDDING

Now I know, in the past, that I have poo-poo’d several Jennifer Lopez movies, particularly those of the romantic-comedy variety. I simply was not entertained, on top of the blantant transparency that those stories and plots offer. As usual, I kept an open mind when going into the screening of J-Lo’s newest movie Shotgun Wedding.… Continue reading SHOTGUN WEDDING

MISSING

With the critical and financial success of the screenlife thriler Searching, it makes perfect sense that this film would launch a sequel. Though Missing is not an actual continuation of the story established with the previous movie, it continues the franchise with a similarly, computer/electronic-based thriller that follows a similar story with some twists and… Continue reading MISSING

M3GAN

And since I had a rather busy autumn/winter awards season, watching tons of movies, that wasn’t too difficult for me to evade anything regarding M3GAN. All I knew was that it was a movie about an advanced doll,… Continue reading M3GAN

A MAN CALLED OTTO

Just prior to attending this screening, the usual thought prevailed within my mind. Is this just another inferior American remake of a superior film made by another nation. However, in order to answer that question, I would have to watch the previous version. To give a better context, A Man Called Otto is an American… Continue reading A MAN CALLED OTTO

BABYLON

Whiplash, La La Land, and First Man are all movies that absolutely sold me on, and made me a fan of, filmmaker Damian Chazelle. So, I most definitely went into Babylon with great expectations. After sitting though the exhausting 189 minutes of Chazelle’s newest, I was reminded that almost every filmmaker has that one movie… Continue reading BABYLON
