Did you see it?
I posted on Tuesday about Signs and the beauty I saw in its message. I then, as I usually do, shared the post on relevant sub-Reddits, one of which being r/horror. Little did I know, there is a bit of a controversy about a certain ‘plothole’ in the film. The conversation in the comments wentContinue reading “The Water Plot Hole In [Signs]: A Rebuttal”
I’d never watched Signs before this past weekend. The reasons are easy enough to enumerate. I am not a big horror fan, and upon the movie’s release, the people I knew only talked about how scary it was. I therefore imagined a lot of jump scares and stress, and I rarely find myself in theContinue reading “Do You Believe In [Signs]?: Movie Review And Explanation”
I love ranking things (as you can tell from a lot of my prior posts). But I have stumbled into a contentious debate with this particular list. However, I decided to lean into the topic and not pull any punches, not for the sake of argument, but because when the kitchen’s hot, make sure youContinue reading “Ranking [Star Wars] Films”
When writing about Uncut Gems one writes about its stress-inducing, anxiety triggering plotline, as I did after I first watched it.

I am here to admit, thatContinue reading “The Veil Of Truth [Uncut Gems]”
As any good nerd, I find unmatched joy in making rich connections between the many media I may be consuming at any time. My usual routine is to be reading a fiction book, listening to a nonfiction book, watching a television show throughout the week, and spending time catching up on movies over the weekend.Continue reading “Themed Recommendation List: 60’s California Drug Culture”

A pure joy for all readers and the fictional characters who play it. Picking a fight against this beloved sport would be unnecessary. A personContinue reading “Quidditch And The Snitch Problem: This Sport Makes No Sense [Harry Potter]”
I just watched Crazy, Stupid, Love for the first time. It was pretty good. I laughed quite a bit even if those collective moments didn’t make an amazing movie. But what I noticed most was that this movie was a font of memes. Every scene seemed to produce a different gif for the internet to use toContinue reading “The Meme Maker [Crazy, Stupid, Love]”
This post was written over a year ago after seeing 1917 in theaters. For some reason, I did not get around to posting it until now. The first time I really heard about the concept of less cuts in film was with The Revenant. This might have been when the national conversation about it, outsideContinue reading “One Cut Was Enough ”
It’s not even worth pointing out how quickly technology has advanced. We see it and live it every day. But there are moments where this hyper-acceleration of technologies comes into sharp focus, and this often happens when technology of today is put in contrast with the technology of yesteryear. We become nostalgic around a payContinue reading “Technology In Film: As Seen In [Patriot Games]”

So let’s RANK THE DEATHS BY DINO IN THE FILM FROM WORST TO BEST! 4. SHOOT HERRRR!! Just to establish a baseline, allContinue reading “Ranking The Deaths In [Jurassic Park]”
