“Thor: Ragnarok” diverged in style from the first two Thor movies, giving the character and his place in the MCU (the Marvel cinematic universe) the revitalization he needed. It was clear from the trailer that this was going to be a different Thor movie, but in some ways it looked too similar to “Guardians of t...

“I first started as a YouTube channel, to post all my projects on there. In order to make a video for my channel, I had to practice filming; once I started filming, I noticed that I wasn’t that bad at it. My friends told me that my filming was good and that I should make another company for filming...

La La Land is soaring into Oscar season with 14 nominations, putting it on par with Titanic for the most nominations ever. But why is La La Land so popular? Typically, musicals are enjoyed by a niche group, and yet La La Land has managed to capture a surprisingly large audience. Of course an Oscar nomi...

Originally titled No se aceptan devoluciones (No Refunds Excepted), this foreign film was released in 2013 and had a fairly good response from the box office.

The Weekly Watch: “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” (9/10)

A comedic classic produced in 1975,

If legends like Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd were willing to invest around £20,000 each into the production of a film, the said film must be worth viewing. Indeed was the case with me. I was immediately interested in watching Monty Python and the Holy Grail after both the fact stated prior and on my be...

The Weekly Watch: Sharknado (1.5/10)

Sharknado, a film centered around flying, man-eating sharks, is not worth anyone's time.

Out of all the films I’ve invested my viewing time into, Sharknado just might be the worst. For a film with a budget of two million dollars, I expected much more than director Anthony C. Ferrante provided. CGI (Computer Generated Imagery) sharks and cheesy dialogue just didn’t cut it.   Ferrante’s cinemati...

Sling Blade, is a complex drama that manages to capture a man’s life story in just two hours— a short amount of time for a massive plot. Even more impressive is the filming duration, 24 days, which is extremely unusual for a film as cerebrally pleasing as Sling Blade.   Billy Bob Thornton’s ...

According to the Daily Mail, one in three children don’t live with their father, but rather depend on their mother or other guardian to take care of them— much like in the case of Frankie Morrison in the British drama, Dear Frankie. As my first film review, I decided to briefly explain my rat...
