Spoilers!

It’s been less than a week people. Less than one week since Avengers: Infinity War was released in the US and yet I’m still seeing people pretty causally dropping spoilers. This really bothers me even though I was lucky enough to dodge all spoilers before going to see the movie. It just seems pretty rude to me though. Like, don’t you want everyone to be able to have the same experience that you had watching the movie? Don’t you realize that just posting on FaceBook comments about potential character reveals can really sour the movie for people who didn’t rush…

Rotten Tomatoes

I have conflicting feelings about Rotten Tomatoes. I know for a lot of people it’s a really useful tool to help them decide what movies to go see, but there is a slight problem with it. The Tomatometer. The Tomatometer is the number that pops up on sites like Fandango, and it’s the number that movies use in their marketing campaigns now. It determines if a movie is “fresh” or “rotten”.  The way that Rotten Tomatoes calculates this number is kind of deceiving though. You see in order for a movie to be considered fresh it has to have received…

Movie Roundup: April 3rd

I’m back with another set of movies to talk about and I’ve upgraded to video format. This week I’m talking about Midnight Sun, 7 Days in Entebbe, and Ready Player One. If you want to just hear me talk about Midnight Sun that’s right at the start, if you want to hear about 7 Days in Entebbe you can skip to here. Finally if you want to hear about Ready Player One skip right to this part. Later. Fun fact, those stupid black bars only appear on the embedded version here, on YouTube itself they don’t exist. I just don’t…

Movie Roundup

Alright, I said I was going to do a movie roundup for today so here we go. Unsane This was a pretty good movie, and I came into it with almost no expectations. This movie was marketed as a psychological thriller where you wouldn’t be able to tell if the lead character played by Claire Foy (Yes The Crowns Claire Foy) was crazy or not. However, the movie pretty much abandoned that idea from the get-go as it’s pretty obvious what’s happening is real and not in her head. This will frustrate a lot of audience members but I still…

Reviewing

Earlier in the week, I talked about my love of going to the movies. I want to in some sense spread that love around and I realized that a lot of the time when I write about movies I’m not really doing that. Typically this is either because the movie I’m talking about is smaller and often “weirder” movie that most people aren’t going to go see even if I called it the greatest movie of all time or I’m bashing movies I think are bad. Neither one of these things encourages anyone to leave their homes to go see…

The Movies

I’m a big fan of movie theatres, also in the news cancer sucks, waters are wet, the sky is blue and fire is hot. Actually though going to see a movie in the theatre is one of my absolute favorite things to do. Apparently, that makes me a somewhat special person because I keep seeing these ads before my movies where I’m thanked just for showing up to the theatre. I mean they’re thanking the other theatre attendees as well, but I’m there so often that sometimes I think they’re talking directly to me. The real reason they’re airing those…
