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?
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
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
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!
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
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
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
2020 was a rather unceremonious start to the decade, as far as music goes. It isn’t even like there was a dearth of music I loved from this year, either; saying that would be disingenuous and dishonest, because there was quite a bit that I loved. However, just like with every other facet of 2020,… Continue reading Best Albums/Songs of 2020
Well, it goes without saying that 2020 was a nightmare of a year and though it’s the least important tragedy of the last 365 days, it was a year that will have unprecedented negative effects on the film industry. We’re not too far from theaters being exclusively designed to play ten different comic book and… Continue reading 2020 Movies Ranked
Martin Scorsese needs no introduction. Marty’s the greatest director alive right now. Depending on if you prefer him or Kubrick (I prefer Marty), he’s probably the greatest American director, too. It wouldn’t be blasphemous to say he’s one of the five greatest directors, either. He’s about as good as it gets, and, despite what some… Continue reading Martin Scorsese Films Ranked
