As is a major yearly tradition of mine, I spend all year doing my absolute best to watch as many movies as possible (I logged 64 films from 2022 last year!), many of which find themselves in competition in the first quarter of the new year at Hollywood’s Biggest Night ⟨™⟩, the Oscars! Like I’ve… Continue reading 2023 OSCARS PREDICTIONS

Super Bowl Halftime Shows Ranked
For many around the country, unfortunately, the most exciting aspect of the wonderful yearly Super Bowl is not in fact the game, but the halftime performance! Sure, there have been years where this could’ve been acceptable (perhaps the 2013 Super Bowl between the Broncos and Seahawks or the 2019 Super Bowl between the Rams and… Continue reading Super Bowl Halftime Shows Ranked
2022 MOVIES RANKED
2022 brought us a mixed bag of movies. Though I’ve seen many opinions from people I trust and respect claiming otherwise, I feel quite strongly that 2021 was far superior. 2021 had far more masterpieces and a bit firmer middle pack of movies. Perhaps 2022 had a few less reprehensible movies (and it still had… Continue reading 2022 MOVIES RANKED
2022 Oscars: Who Should/Will Win?
I hate the Oscars! It is happening again! It is Hollywood’s biggest night! Like an idiot, I have cared deeply about the Oscars since I was 14. 2011 was a formative film year for me, with some of my favorite movies ever made competing against each other for top prizes. Every year since then, I… Continue reading 2022 Oscars: Who Should/Will Win?
EUPHORIA Season Two
With the second season of HBO’s original drama, EUPHORIA, Sam Levinson confirms his status in the industry as a fraudulent and unserious show-runner Sydney Sweeney (left), Alexa Demie (middle), and Barbie Ferreira (right) in the second season of HBO's EUPHORIA *Minor spoiler warning for those who have not yet watched season two of EUPHORIA* The… Continue reading EUPHORIA Season Two
2021 Movies Ranked
Despite every passing year seeming bleaker and bleaker in regards to the quality of art being produced in the world (as is such in a society plagued by late-stage capitalism), I am delighted to report that 2021 was actually an excellent year for movies. Sure, that could just be because so many of the big… Continue reading 2021 Movies Ranked
Late October/Early November Movie Round-up!
I spent much of the end of October and the start of November sitting in various New York City AMCs (shout-out to the 19th St AMC, which is the only New York City AMC with a bar, and the Lincoln Square AMC, which is my personal favorite) watching new movies. Some of them were very… Continue reading Late October/Early November Movie Round-up!
DEAR EVAN HANSEN: An Unmitigated Embarrassing Disaster
Three weeks ago I stumbled into an AMC theater to see DEAR EVAN HANSEN, a movie-musical. Despite knowing that 2019's CATS was one of the worst major studio motion-pictures of the last few years and despite regularly being frustrated by almost every recent musical film-adaptation, I assumed it couldn't be THAT bad. It had recently… Continue reading DEAR EVAN HANSEN: An Unmitigated Embarrassing Disaster
2021 Oscar Talk and Predictions
After a full year of studios releasing legitimately no new movies to theaters due to the widespread Coronavirus pandemic (save for TENET, which did NOT save movie theaters), 2020 was filled with a bunch of mostly mediocre to serviceable films that were direct-to-streaming. Cinema, as we used to know it, has probably died forever and… Continue reading 2021 Oscar Talk and Predictions
23 on 23
I turned 23 last year, February 3rd, drunk off black cherry White Claws, vodka sodas, and whiskey shots at Mel’s Burger Bar, the restaurant I was a bartender at in New York City before the entire country shut down. It was the Super Bowl and I was with a good friend, having fun watching Pat… Continue reading 23 on 23
