Reviews – Spiderman: Homecoming, Baby Driver, & Dunkirk

Last week I watched 3 movies, and while I fully intended on sitting down to write more thought-out and extensive reviews, I decided that if I don’t do this now I will probably forget the initial feelings I had coming out of the theater. So in lieu of a more well-written entry, here’s a quick, completely unfiltered and unedited version of my reviews. Spiderman: Homecoming … Continue reading Reviews – Spiderman: Homecoming, Baby Driver, & Dunkirk

Post Oscars & Sam’s Picks

For the first time, I got to watch the Oscars during normal airing time (perks of living on the West Coast, points for LA). Despite the fact that today was LA’s worst weather since getting out here (it will never be as bad as the Northeast winters though, let’s be honest), good company, entertainment,margaritas and wine, and of course, the Oscars ballot and pool, made … Continue reading Post Oscars & Sam’s Picks

The Oscar contenders: Remaining reviews

I had meant to write reviews of each film after watching them but didn’t get around to doing that, so here is an abridged review to those films: Boyhood – There has been so much talk around this 12 year project. It is a project that required an incredible vision and commitment, one which director Richard Linklater held onto for the better part of the last decade. … Continue reading The Oscar contenders: Remaining reviews

Benedict Cumberbatch has not slowed down in pumping up his resume since last award season, when he was part an ensemble of not just one, or two, but three Academy Award-nominated films (12 Years a Slave, August: Osage County, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug). This award season sees nothing less of his efforts. In Morton Tyldum’s The Imitation Game, Cumberbatch lives up to all the hype that … Continue reading “The Imitation Game” Review

Into the Woods Review

Every now and then we all roll our eyes at the Disney conglomerate that consumes existing stories and “Disney-fy” it. But fairy tales and musicals, that’s Disney’s specialty, at least the classic ones, and Rob Marshall’s new “Into the Woods” is no exception, except that it is. Led by the incomparable Meryl Streep as the Witch (who frankly, did such a stupendous job it made … Continue reading Into the Woods Review

Eye for an Eye

Any given ‘thesis’ project is supposed to be a reflection of the culmination of one’s education and work. 3.5 years ago, I entered into college with an ambition and dream too big to contain, and frankly I’m not even sure I knew how to handle it properly. Then I stumbled and fussed my way through classes and disciplines on a field that I had absolutely … Continue reading Eye for an Eye

Don’t Look Down: Senior Cinema Thesis Screening

For 4 years I have thought about the dawning of this day, the day when I would supposedly have made the most of my experiences in college as the culmination of my academic learning is manifested in the form of my senior cinema thesis film. It is completely ridiculous to think that the next pages I turn to following this one will begin the pages … Continue reading Don’t Look Down: Senior Cinema Thesis Screening
