In anticipation for Wednesday’s release of Pixar's 16th film, “The Good Dinosaur”, we felt the need to write about our 10 favorite Pixar films.
This review does contain spoilers, I've tried my best to contain them to the end. Will mark them so you don't get anything ruined! Before jumping into the review, it's worth mentioning that I have read each book before each movie and enjoyed them all for the most part. That being said, Catching Fire is the one … Continue reading The Subtle YA Subversion of Mockingjay Part 2
Welcome to the first entry in our Extreme Cinema Series. We plan to cover the best and brightest in the underground horror scene. These films often deal with high levels of violence and gore, which can often be sexual in nature. These kinds of films tend to make Saw and Hostel look tame. Needless to … Continue reading Film Review: Flowers
The Five Stars is an article series in which we chronicle films that have a lasting influence on us and that we feel are essential for any film lover. This series is dedicated to the late Roger Ebert "I have infinite tenderness for you. I always will. My whole life." Blue is the Warmest Color … Continue reading The Five Stars : Blue Is The Warmest Color
Ok, Mistress America is technically a very well reviewed film and liked by many...which doesn't merit much defense. However, I usually despise the combo of Noah Baumbach (his films are usually about white male's going through first world problems) and the annoying and overrated Greta Gerwig. And to my surprise, Mistress America turned out to be one … Continue reading The Entertaining Surprise of Mistress America

When the two minute trailer ended, a wonderful conclusion was made: This film looks EPIC! Coming from Universal and Legendary, there was an assumption that it was going to have money and quality behind it. This is … Continue reading Warcraft and The New Era of Video Game to Film Adaptations
"Just because you're beautiful doesn't mean I have to like you." That saying has been around ever since I was a little kid. The term was often used to describe the prettiest girl in class, especially if she made fun of you to your face. Despite the stigma behind the term, I grew quite fond of it. Not because I … Continue reading Film Review: Spectre
In anticipation for the Friday release of Spectre, we're going to look back on Sam Mendes' diverse and critically welcomed filmography. His transition from turning Tom Hanks into a believable gangster to making us think a Bond film can be Oscar worthy, is proof that Mendes is one of the best filmmakers working today. In the early 90's, he … Continue reading Desperate Characters and Lush Visuals: The Films of Sam Mendes
The Grands is an article series in which we give an in depth look at Grand Prix winners from The Cannes Film Festival. Director Jacque Rivette loves to color outside the lines. In fact the guy has practically made his entire career out of the concept. In his arguable (and daunting) magnum opus Out 1 … Continue reading The Grands: La Belle Noiseuse
What's going on Bradley Cooper? I’ve been a fan of Bradley Cooper for half a decade now and it wasn’t because of the enormous popularity of The Hangover and let’s be honest, Cooper wasn’t the reason you saw that movie more than once. I became a fan because of his entertaining turn in The A-Team. I … Continue reading The Downfall of Bradley Cooper?
