Shang-Chi: Marvel’s Toughest Action Film

It’s been awhile, brahs. It’s been awhile since we’ve had a new Marvel movie based on a new character. I see Marvel dominating on the streaming platforms with Loki, Wanda/Vision, and Cap and the Winter Soldier but I just can’t help but feel disinterested. Even with The Eternals coming out, I still couldn’t shake thisContinue reading “Shang-Chi: Marvel’s Toughest Action Film”

Matchstick Men

Literally had to look up Alison Lohman’s age in Matchstick Men because it wasn’t matching up for me. PLOT: Nicolas Cage plays Roy Waller, a con man who’s pretty good at his job, but it’s apparent that he’s not proud of what he does. On top of that, Waller has tourettes and OCD, so he’sContinue reading “Matchstick Men”

The Green Knight: A Tale on Chivalry

The feel-good Christmas movie of the year! What’s It About? The Green Knight is a medieval fantasy centered on Gawain, the nephew of King Arthur, but unlike his uncle, Gawain has “no story to tell” and has achieved nothing remarkable in his life when compared to Arthur and his knights. However, opportunity comes a-knockin’ onContinue reading “The Green Knight: A Tale on Chivalry”

NOLAN AWARDS

IT’S A WONDERFUL NIGHT FOR NOLAN!!!! NOLAN MOVIES!!!! ••• For the sake of being different, I’m not going to give the win to Ledger’s Joker. Instead, I want to highlight Anne Hathaway’s performance as Catwoman because it’s legitimately one of the most exciting performances in any superhero film. This is an inspired casting choice inContinue reading “NOLAN AWARDS”

NOLAN RANKINGS: PART 2

Here we go, now we get to the fun stuff! ••• I know guys, The Dark Knight is objectively better than Batman Begins, but as a pure Batman movie, Begins is the best! I appreciate how Nolan balances the grounded realism with the fantastical elements of the character while never favoring one over the other.Continue reading “NOLAN RANKINGS: PART 2”
