Free Guy Review | NPC Turned MVP!

Free Guy Review | NPC Turned MVP!

Free Guy is the most FUN, FUNNY, FEEL GOOD, HEARTFELT, MOTIVATIONAL movie of the year. What appears to be a zany video game action-comedy with Ryan Reynolds doing that Ryan Reynolds thing is in fact just that, but surprisingly and gratefully it’s even more. Ryan Reynolds in Free Guy Guy (Ryan Reynolds) a Non-playable character (NPC) in an open world video game “Free City” begins to question his mundane existence when he crosses paths with a determined young vixen, Millie (Jodie Comer), he believes to be his dream girl and life purpose. Destiny unites them and the realization that there’s…

Sweat Review | Social Media Commentary At It’s Finest

Sweat Review | Social Media Commentary At It’s Finest

Whether we like it or not, social media is running the world. The number of influencers is rising, causing filmmakers to become interested in the topic and try to tackle it in their movies. The problem is that it’s hard to make a film about influencers that feels out of touch with today’s social media culture, most being corny and annoying rather than engrossing. Some even go in the way of satire, but they fail to get their point across due to over-exaggeration like Gia Coppola’s Mainstream (2021), Assassination Nation (2018), and Spree (2020). On the other hand, Magnus von…

Gunpowder Milkshake Review | Style Over Substance

Gunpowder Milkshake Review | Style Over Substance

Netflix may have some great films like Marriage Story (2019) and Roma (2018) under their belt, but they have a knack for delivering some very forgettable action flicks. Some examples of these are Michael Bay’s 6 Underground (2019), Bright (2017), and most recently, Army of the Dead (2021). They might pull big streaming numbers, however, that does not mean they are good; they are completely lackluster. Now, Netflix brings us Gunpowder Milkshake, which is an amazing title. On paper, it looked like it would be a grand time due to it having a talented cast that is used to the…

The Lost Leonardo Review | Tribeca 2021

The Lost Leonardo Review | Tribeca 2021

The Lost Leonardo is quite a surprising gem. A documentary, yes, but a mystery that keeps you engaged and unsure until the very end. This is more than an art documentary, it’s a study of value and, more specifically, of the very real and monetary value that belief has the power to impart on anything. The Lost Leonardo This narrative revolves around the mystery that surrounds the Salvator Mundi, the first Leonardo da Vinci painting to be discovered in over a century. How it was found, how it perplexed, amazed, & frustrated the art community worldwide, and how it has…

In the Heights Review | The Movie of the Year!

In the Heights Review | The Movie of the Year!

“Paciencia y Fé” is the only thing that kept me from loosing it while waiting for In the Heights. Patience during the global melt-down that paralyzed the theatrical industry forcing studios to push films, often aggressively. Faith that the wait would be well worth it. At the least, films are designed to delight and entertain. Everyone can think of many films they love that have achieved that goal but everyone also has those couple of films that rocked them to their core and filled them with wonder and emotion few other films could. In the Heights is one such film…

Language Lessons Review | SXSW2021

Language Lessons Review | SXSW2021

Clever and emotional, Language Lessons finds a way to make the video-chat-narrative work with a thoughtful, funny, and relatable story that feels natural rather than forced. Never did I feel like I was watching a gimmick but instead like I was watching something private and special. Language Lessons Cariño, a teacher living in Costa Rica, is hired to give Adam, a well to-do man in California, a refresher on Spanish, a language he spoke as a child but has since fallen out of practice with it. Over the course of their sessions these two strangers will go through some of…

The United States vs. Billie Holiday Review | A Great Story Lacking Focus

The United States vs. Billie Holiday Review | A Great Story Lacking Focus

This review will be different… The United States vs. Billie Holiday is powerful and triggering. Lee Daniels takes the story of a legend and composes a visual narrative that mentions and, on occasion, sheds light on that which the opening and closing texts would have you believe is the focus of the film. Lynching… an abysmal act that, to my surprise, has yet to be outlawed in our “great” nation due to semantics, and which inspired the “song of the century” “Strange Fruit”. Daniels chooses instead to focus on heroin, on how the FBI used it to strike fear in…

Ma Belle, My Beauty Review | Sundance 2021

Ma Belle, My Beauty Review | Sundance 2021

Ma Belle, My Beauty is a raw moving picture that delves into a relationship molded by years of complicated love and into how it can be shattered in an instant by selfishness and abandonment. A quiet patient story that explores so much more than emotion and touches on a side of togetherness few have experienced but most understand. The feeling of loving someone with everything you have but knowing they can’t help but bring pain and never seem to take it with them when they leave. Idella Johnson and Hannah Pepper appear in Ma Belle, My Beauty by Marion Hill,…
