Jordan Peele’s Terrifying ‘Us’ is the Year’s First Must-See Movie (Review)

Jordan Peele’s Terrifying ‘Us’ is the Year’s First Must-See Movie (Review)

Director Jordan Peele took the world by storm with his directorial debut, Get Out, back in 2017. The picture amassed over $255 million dollars at the box office on a $4-million dollar budget, generated social commentary, and later nabbed Peele his first-ever Oscar for Best Original Screenplay. Ever since then, moviegoers and entertainment writers alike wondered what Peele would tell audiences next. Surprisingly, Peele returned to the horror genre with another original idea, Us. With the bar being set very high thanks to his previous movie, the expectations for Us were somewhat unprecedented. But thanks to confident direction and another knockout script that presents new ideas, horrors, humor, and great character development, Peele has struck gold once again. Us is the year’s first memorable movie; it’s a horror movie that will require multiple viewings to appreciate its brilliance in showing us new horrors that won’t soon leave the minds of those that step into Peele’s new story.

His latest film, Climax, is no different, as it follows a company of dancers throwing a party turned nightmarish once they learn their sangria is spiked with a psychotropic drug, causing their sense of human decency to erode along with their inhibitions in horrific, existential fashion.

Fighting With My Family is a Heartwarming Tribute to The Real Skill & Difficulty of Professional Wrestling (Review)

Fighting With My Family is a Heartwarming Tribute to The Real Skill & Difficulty of Professional Wrestling (Review)

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I sat down to see Fighting with My Family.  I knew it was a movie that somehow involved wrestling and that’s about it. I hadn’t even seen the trailer and I couldn’t tell anything from the audience.  Different films bring different audience demographics and this one was all over the map. I’m not a wrestling fan or even a sports fan, there wasn’t much I could relate to in Fighting with My Family, but from the first scene, I could tell this was something different. Read more

That’s not a spoiler from Captain Marvel, the latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). For those who saw last year’s Avengers: Infinity War, audiences were teased at movie’s end via a pager that the “most cosmic superhero of all” is on her way. And ever since then, audiences eagerly have been awaiting the female heroine’s big screen debut. Surprisingly, and despite being formulaic, the first female superhero movie in the MCU (only took 11 long years); Captain Marvel is another bonafide entry in the ever-growing superhero movie universe thanks to a likeable lead heroine in Brie Larson, her supporting cast, and some fantastic action sequences and visual effects.
