5 Films I’m Excited To See In the Second Half of 2019

Top 5

We are almost half way through 2019 and, to be honest, besides Endgame and an Estonian film, the movies have been a little underwhelming. At least the ones I’ve seen, which is not many, less than 20. Shazam wasn’t bad either but like I said, nothing but the two I mentioned have blown me away. Which is why I’m looking forward to these five movies and hoping that all of them will blow me away!…

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil & Vile (2019)

Movie

There is so much violence in the world, which we get to witness on a day to day basis. We see the gruesome imagery on television, images that aren’t just fiction but also reality. Violence is, and always will be, part of humanity. If you’re looking for those images in Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil & Vile, you will be disappointed.

And I bet half of you already know at least one of…

Thursday Movie Picks: Interview

Thursday Movie Picks

This year I’ve been especially out of the box with some themes and this week won’t be any different. Today I’m going to look at an interview as an important part of the process of making a film. More specifically, a documentary!

Us (2019)

Movie

With the success of Get Out under his belt, Jordan Peele had to bring it for his second time around. All our expectations were high. And the trailer got us all excited! The pressure built, the movie premiered and it ended up being a little disappointing. At the end of the day I wish Peele took a bit more time off to execute this idea of his. Because Us is rushed, predictable and a little unpolished around the edges.…
