American Beauty (1999)

Disclaimer: I knew nothing about this film going into it. To be honest, this is pretty standard of most movies I watch for this blog. I know that it's critically acclaimed, and I vaguely suspect that this is the movie where the "plastic bag" scene comes into play, but those aren't exactly helpful hints. For the fellow...

Wentworth – (Teal Blue may actually be the new Black)

We've all been feeling pretty let down by Orange is the New Black these past couple of seasons. The sexy, fresh prison-dramedy was once the darling of Netflix's Original content, but in the last year, has been criticized for their portrayals of racial injustice within the American prison system, which many believe (myself included) crossed a line....

Memento (2000)

This is one of those reviews that really support my tagline: Unqualified movie reviewer praises already critically acclaimed movies. What can I say? At least I'm honest. Considering the massive amount of articles, reviews, and Youtube conspiracy videos that come up through a quick Google search, I have high expectations for Memento. Sometimes my tastes don't align with the big-shot film...

Mr. and Mrs. Smith (2005)

Just as it says on the DVD case, this movie is indeed a "SMART and SEXY" time. Angelina Jolie and the young Brad Pitt are as glamorous as ever, and what else could heighten their sex appeal other than their aggressive tango moves? I enjoyed the marriage counseling opener, which reminded me of the on-camera... Continue Reading →

A sweet, thoughtful award that allows little bloggers to discover each other and build a network of like-minded people. The Rules: Put the award logo/image on your blog List... Continue Reading →

The One I Love (2014)

The Duplass Brothers (the production company behind the film) have a bit of a following within my school. They did some films you may recognize - Skeleton Twins (2014) starring Kristen Wiig and Bill Hader, for instance. From the two movies I've seen, their style seems revolve around limited settings, but with well-written characters and high-end actors to match...

Star Wars Crash Course

A few days ago, a nice young man came into the unnamed office where I work, wearing a Rogue One T-shirt. At my boss's request, I went over to make light small talk, while nervously avoiding eye-contact with his shirt, because I . . . have never seen Star Wars. I twisted the conversation to Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, a bit...
