"Everything I learned, I learned from the movies."

- Audrey Hepburn

Read through my reviews of hit and miss movies that I have had the pleasure (and occasionally, displeasure) of watching. Get that popcorn ready.

There seems to be a trend of young adult book adaptations that feature a female protagonist in an unjust society in which they must try to ‘find’ themselves. I would put Divergent on par to the Hunger Games with one exception. The lead. In the Hunger Games movies, Katniss fit the appearance of a girl Read more…

I was under the impression that Interstellar would be exactly like Gravity, but much to my relief, it was not. Well, except for the space setting and one or two unfortunate scenarios. Unlike Gravity, however, this had a story with a little M. Night Shamalan-esque eeriness of ghostly proportions. That sounds horrible. Let me retract. Read more…

magic in the moonlight

Monday, June 1st, 2015

Magic in the Moonlight was tedious, but cute. In the beautiful landscape of France, a very astute man is called upon to determine the legitimacy of a young female physic. The movie paints a romance born out of deception. From an artistic standpoint, everything about this film was gorgeous, but it wasn’t memorable. I feel Read more…

the hundred foot journey

Saturday, May 30th, 2015

Lately, I have found myself watching culinary genius through a screen rather than through my mouth. The Hundred Foot Journey was charming, emotional, and mouth-watering. I was salivating for a good 50% of the film. The story was not very deep, but it was balanced between romance and drama. The characters are likable, especially that Read more…

star wars: episode iii – revenge of the sith

Tuesday, May 19th, 2015

At last, we encounter Darth Vader, completely consumed by the Dark Side. While the crimes committed by Anakin are still hidden from view, Revenge of the Sith sufficiently presents the chaos of a broken galaxy due to political instabilities and individual greed. Like the second however, it felt like there was more care given to Read more…

avengers: age of ultron

Monday, May 18th, 2015

Where is Marvel going with all these movies? Because, I am starting to feel like they are losing focus. I really expected Age of Ultron to be as great as the first with the curt remarks between characters and the unyielding bond between them as a team. Instead, the comical dialogue exchanges were centered on Read more…

star wars: episode ii – attack of the clones

Monday, May 18th, 2015

10 years have passed in this story and it appears Anakin has become a resentful teenager under Obi-Wan’s tutelage. Although this is better than the Phantom Menace, the story is still underdeveloped. The most important elements seemed to be brushed aside such as the relationship between Anakin and Padme and Anakin’s early stages of Dark Read more…

star wars: episode i – the phantom menace

Saturday, May 16th, 2015

The first time I watched this was when it first came out when I was just a youngling. I remember being upset that it was made. After several years of vowing never to watch it again or the two sequels to follow, I bit my tongue and decided it needed another chance. My sentiments remain Read more…

furious 7

Sunday, May 10th, 2015

This movie tops all the movies I’ve seen so far this year and here’s why: It’s beautiful. I couldn’t imagine this movie going any other way and the fact that the director and the cast was able to put this together in their grief of losing a member of their family really makes you appreciate Read more…

little boy

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2015

Small people have it hard. Not only do we struggle to reach items off of shelves, we occasionally get used as arm rests. Thanks, taller people. This movie is for the little people! It’s about a little boy, who does whatever he can to bring his dad back from war. It’s a heartwarming film that Read more…
