Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021)

If I’m being completely honest, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings was one of the Marvel films that I was least excited to see. I had accepted the fact that I was going to have to watch it, so that I don’t miss out on anything that connects the film to the larger picture, but that was about it. After viewing the film on … Continue reading Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021)

Things Heard and Seen (2021)

It can be hard to sift through all the Netflix Original films to find a good one. There’s just so many that get released at once, that the choice of what to watch, alone, can be overwhelming. But, that’s why you have me! Consider me your “movie guinea pig”. Things Heard and Seen is a 2021 horror/thriller written and directed by Shari Springer Berman and … Continue reading Things Heard and Seen (2021)

Old (2021)

When will people stop letting M. Night Shyamalan adapt work into a screenplay? Did studios learn NOTHING from Avatar: The Last Airbender? Old is adapted from the 2010 graphic novel Sandcastles by Pierre Oscar Levy and Frederik Peeters. And, in true Shyamalan fashion, he adds his own twists and explanations that, I assume, he thinks are clever.  Old finds three groups of people traveling to a … Continue reading Old (2021)

Black Widow (2021)

Two years. It has been nearly two years without a new Marvel film. And, finally, we get one that fans have been asking for for years. Black Widow stars Scarlett Johansson reprising her role as Natasha Romanoff aka the Black Widow. Taking place between Captain America: Civil War and Infinity War, Black Widow follows the titular character on the run from the United States government for violating the Sokovia Accords (the … Continue reading Black Widow (2021)

28. All About Eve (1950)

A seemingly timid but secretly ruthless ingénue insinuates herself into the lives of an aging Broadway star and her circle of theater friends. You know, I don’t think there will ever be a time where All About Eve will be irrelevant. In powerhouse performances from both Bette Davis (Margo) and Anne Baxter (Eve), All About Eve follows young Eve as she inserts herself into the life of … Continue reading 28. All About Eve (1950)

Films to Hold in HIGH regard

Have any of you ever watched The Matrix while high? How about Videodrome? Or even Godspell?  There is something completely different that occurs when watching a film under the influence of good ol’ Mary Jane. In some cases, I’m utterly lost within the first 10 minutes while in others I’m not only following along with the film, I’m absolutely enthralled by everything about it. In some cases, watching … Continue reading Films to Hold in HIGH regard

The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (2021)

The third installment in The Conjuring series leaves something to be desired. Easily the weakest of the three films, The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It centers around the well known story of Arne Cheyenne Johnson and his murder defense of “demonic possession”. Unlike the previous Conjuring films, The Devil Made Me Do It is not a “haunted house” film like the others. This one, instead, focuses on … Continue reading The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It (2021)
