The Beach Bum is Carefully Made & Nuanced But I Didn’t Get The Point (Review)

The Beach Bum is Carefully Made & Nuanced But I Didn’t Get The Point (Review)

A friend of mine who is a Harmony Korine fan predicted that I would not like The Beach Bum but I thought I might like it.  After all, I absolutely didn’t want to see the Live Action Remake of Dumbo and after seeing the trailer, there was a good chance there could be all sorts of surfer fan service, so odds were good that there would be something in it for me.   And since I don’t feel like being wrong at all, I’m going to say that I loved The Beach Bum. I just need to find a way to explain why. Read more

US is Creepy as Hell & Makes Brilliant Use of The Uncanny (Review)

US is Creepy as Hell & Makes Brilliant Use of The Uncanny (Review)

Wow, people sure are talking about Us, Jordan Peele’s latest film. Apparently it’s crazier than Get Out or maybe it’s less crazy than Get Out, but one thing seems to be certain – if you liked Get Out, you’ll LOVE Us.  Well what about those of us who didn’t see Get Out? There must be dozens of us, after all. How do you describe this Jordan Peele’s 2019 movie without referring to  his one in 2017? I’ll give it a shot – Us is my first exposure to this writer/director/producer. Read more

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.
