‘Nomadland’ is Simplistic, Poetic and One of 2020’s Best Films (Review)

‘Nomadland’ is Simplistic, Poetic and One of 2020’s Best Films (Review)

There are certain low-budget indie movies that come out every year that are absolute must-sees. Its looks like in 2020, Nomadland is 100% that movie. There is something captivating and beautiful about a movie that feels so human and genuine. Nomadland is captivating within the first few minutes because it doesn’t even feel like a movie; It feels like as the viewer, you’re a fly on the wall during an actual person’s life. That is very hard to pull off, so props to director/writer Chloe Zhao for achieving that. Read more

‘Malcolm & Marie’ is an Acting Showcase that Gets Under Your Skin (Review)

‘Malcolm & Marie’ is an Acting Showcase that Gets Under Your Skin (Review)

If you had guessed that a grainy black and white film with a scene involving macaroni and cheese would eventually sell for $30 million during the middle of a pandemic, please reach out to me to collect your prize. Conceived and shot during the middle of the pandemic, Malcom & Marie is another drama you can file under “a story that entirely takes place in one setting with no more than two actors that appear on screen.” Approved by multiple organizations that greenlight the shooting of films, the production was scaled back in order to follow COVID-19 protocols. While the production itself may be more fascinating than the film itself when it’s all said and done, Malcolm & Marie is still a drama worth sitting through. Sure, it may not be the awards contender Netflix was hoping it would be, but it’s still a fine film with two great performances from two actors who are currently on hot trails in Hollywood.

Poignant ‘Soul’ is Top-Tier Pixar (Review)

Poignant ‘Soul’ is Top-Tier Pixar (Review)

We all have dreams growing up as children. For me, I always wanted to be a major league baseball player. However, our life’s purpose eventually collides with our dreams. Sometimes, children’s dreams mesh with life’s purpose. But for most people (like myself), our lives take another direction as we grow up. This isn’t a bad thing however, as we are meant to live every minute by making the most of it. That, among other things, is the purpose of life and the message Pixar’s Soul gives audiences. Dealing with thematic elements for people of all ages, Soul takes us on a spiritual journey that is both beautiful and touching, which makes for one of the year’s best movies. The end results will differ for kids and adults, but Pixar veteran director Pete Doctor delivers another movie that is in the top half of Pixar’s entire catalogue.
