The Report is an Intense Political Thriller That Leaves You Feeling Galvanized (Review)

The Report is an Intense Political Thriller That Leaves You Feeling Galvanized (Review)

There is one thing to confirm after seeing The Report: Adam Driver is one of the best actors working in Hollywood and he can do no wrong. He shines in The Report portraying Daniel J. Jones, a senate staffer that worked on uncovering the truth surrounding the CIA’s post 9/11 Interrogation Program. His performance coupled with the tight screenplay and poised direction from Scott Z. Burns make for a very well put-together film. Read more

BlacKkKlansman is The Most Powerful & Important Movie of 2018 (Review)

BlacKkKlansman is The Most Powerful & Important Movie of 2018 (Review)

There is no doubt that Spike Lee is one of the most influential filmmakers of all time. Let’s face it… It is absolutely a CRIME that his 1989 film “Do the Right Thing” didn’t win Best Picture. To this day it is one of the best films in history. In the past 10 years or so, Lee has been making less memorable films. 2006’s “Inside Man” was very well-directed, but that is honestly the last movie Lee made that gripped audiences and didn’t let them go. Miracle at Saint Ana was very disappointing and Chi-Raq kind of flew under the radar. When the trailer for BlacKkKlansman debuted, it was and still is the best trailer of 2018. The pressure was on for Lee to deliver on this unbelievable true story. It is safe to say that he didn’t disappoint at all with this one. BlacKkKlansman is 2018’s first true Oscar film that will have 6 or more nominations, including Best Picture and Best Directing. Read more

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the Year’s Best Blockbuster (Review)

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the Year’s Best Blockbuster (Review)

After seeing Star Wars: The Last Jedi, I’m not surprised Lucasfilm is giving director Rian Johnson the keys to a new Star Wars trilogy after Episode XI; in fact, Rian Johnson’s now further involvement has me actually excited for the next Star Wars trilogy (and I’m not even a Star Wars fan). While The Last Jedi is a Star Wars movie, it also at times feels unlike any other Star Wars movie you’ve seen before. With that said, however, The Last Jedi is still a Star Wars movie through and through, and is filled with crowd-pleasing moments that should delight fans of the franchise. From the story and its gratifying twists and turns, to character developments for both new and old characters in the saga, to the movie’s dazzling action and visual effects, The Last Jedi is everything you could hope for in a grade-A blockbuster, and is easily one of the absolute best Star Wars movies in the franchise.

Logan Lucky: Ensemble of the Summer Shines in This Witty Heist Movie (Review)

It is so refreshing to see a heist film that has a good blend of comedy, wittiness, and cleverness. Sometimes, heist movies try too hard and have too many twists and turns until it becomes a mess. Logan Lucky is the complete opposite of that. It is truly hilarious and written so well that its difficult to look away from the screen. The entire cast is great as well, making it one of the summer’s best films.  Read more

Silence: A Flawed, but Beautiful Look at Faith Under Fire [Review]

Silence: A Flawed, but Beautiful Look at Faith Under Fire [Review]

Given director Martin Scorsese’s film background, which mostly consists of stories centered around crime and gang violence, it comes as a surprise that Silence has been his passion project for 30 years. After numerous legal battles over the years, Scorsese was finally able to make Silence happen. At two hours and 40 minutes, however, Silence is a lot to digest. And while the journey itself is long and tiresome at times, it’s message, told with a great script spoken by an exceptional ensemble cast, makes it feel significant. Though sometimes brutal, Silence paints a beautiful picture of a clash between culture and religion, where characters question the sacrifices they are willing make to keep their faith and driven to the point of expulsion.
