Dear Evan Hansen Review | Powerful & Touching

Dear Evan Hansen Review | Powerful & Touching

Dear Evan Hansen is a musical that, despite some of its shortcomings, manages to enthrall & inspire. Effective in every way, the narrative finds a way through the cracks infecting all who stick through and allow it to grab hold. A beautiful tribute to the anonymous ones. Ben Platt in Dear Evan Hansen Evan is a high school senior with severe social anxiety who receives an assignment from his therapist to write motivational letter to himself to improve his disposition in life as well as increase his self-worth. Connor, a fellow student, takes his own life after stealing one of…

The Year of the Everlasting Storm Review

The Year of the Everlasting Storm Review

The Year of the Everlasting Storm is a pandemic-produced cinema passion project built by seven filmmakers that feels a bit futile as it doesn’t have much to say about our current situation.  As Apichatpong Weerasethakul’s short says “this is the year of the everlasting storm”, and it is indeed everlasting and the emotional drainage that it has caused feels as if a storm has been wreaking havoc in your mind, body, and soul. The first year felt like two and now, in 2021, things are starting to open up again (at least where I live), but there are still the…

Cinderella Review (2021) | Eye Rolls & Cringe Abound

Cinderella Review (2021) | Eye Rolls & Cringe Abound

The tale of Cinderella has been told over and over, with many iterations throughout the years. In 2015, Kenneth Branagh surprised us all with his version and Lily James truly captured the princess’ essence and poise. Now, it’s Kay Cannon's turn to deliver the classic romance, however, it is eye-rollingly cringy, unnecessary, and has terribly nauseating song choices. Camilla Cabello stars in CINDERELLA Photo: Christopher Raphael Ella, better known as Cinderella (Camila Cabello), because she was burned by cinders as a child, as explained lightly in the film, is a young woman who dreams of a better life and wants…

Candyman Review | More Sour Than Sweet

Candyman Review | More Sour Than Sweet

Someone call a dentist because Candyman is rotten to the root… Yahya Abdul-Mateen II in Candyman The gentrified Chicago neighborhood of Cabrini-Green has a history of violence at the hands of white oppressors, of police, and, more recently, at the hands of the men, the myth, the hive… Candyman. Slow to start, the film takes its time to establish the world, the characters, and the stakes. At first it feels right since horror films are notorious at jumping right into it, barely even giving you a chance to breathe until after the shocking cold open. We spend half of its…

The Night House Review | OMG, Rebecca Hall!

Although The Night House’s supernatural aspects might not develop great enticement, Rebecca Hall’s strong lead performance as well as the atmosphere make it into an effective ghost story about loss and transience.  Sarah Goldberg and Rebecca Hall in the film THE NIGHT HOUSE.

Ema Review | A Truly Visionary Experience

Ema Review | A Truly Visionary Experience

Ema uses the luscious aspects of music and dance to explore its core themes of self-destruction, politics, and family with a visionary style and great performances.  Pablo Larraín is a great Chilean filmmaker that devotes himself to doing dramas with staggering characters revolving around some form of pique or obsolescence. Most people will recognize him from Jackie (2016), underrated in my opinion, and No (2012). Larraín’s latest feature, Ema, takes a different stroll around the topics he is used to and transforms them into a story with more vibrancy and color by using the art forms of music and dance. …

John and the Hole | So Much Potential

John and the Hole | So Much Potential

John and the Hole seems to have a good concept on paper, albeit it fails to provide any depth leaving you scratching your head with its weird mix of horror and dark comedy that makes it hard to take seriously.  Comedy and horror have been blended forever; it doesn’t always work, but when it does, it’s a great feeling because most end up disappointing you. Recent examples that have done it are The Cabin in the Woods (2011), Ready or Not (2019), and last year’s Freaky. Now, Pascual Sisto adapts The Water of Life to make John and the Hole,…
