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)

30. Apocalypse Now (1979)

A U.S. Army officer serving in Vietnam is tasked with assassinating a renegade Special Forces Colonel who sees himself as a god. As per usual with films about Vietnam, there is a lot to unpack here. Francis Ford Coppola’s Apocalypse Now begins with footage of bombs going off, destroying the landscape while the lyrics “This is the end, beautiful friend” plays, and that’s just where the … Continue reading 30. Apocalypse Now (1979)

32. The Godfather Part II (1974)

The early life and career of Vito Corleone in 1920s New York City is portrayed, while his son, Michael, expands and tightens his grip on the family crime syndicate. Many have argued that The Godfather Part II is better than The Godfather, but I think that Part II helps us to have a better appreciation for the first film. The Godfather Part II follows both a young Vito Corleone, … Continue reading 32. The Godfather Part II (1974)

Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar (2021)

Written by and starring both Kristen Wiig and Annie Mumolo, Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar is simply a film about two friends from Nebraska who go to Vista Del Mar, Florida for a vacation after losing their jobs.

A Love Letter to Scooby-Doo (2002)

It’s about time that this film, the live action Scooby-Doo got the recognition that it deserves. From start to finish, this film is perfection. Let’s begin with the casting, shall we? There is not a more perfectly casted film ever in the history of cinema. Not only did they nail it with the looks of each character, but each actor really sold their performance. They were believable … Continue reading A Love Letter to Scooby-Doo (2002)
