The Best Movie of the Summer

Yeah, I’m going for a clickbait title, what are you gonna do about it? You’re reading this so obviously it worked. So strap in and get ready to have me just absolutely gush over Eighth Grade. Eighth Grade is the directorial debut of comedian Bo Burnham and was also written by him. It follows the story of Kayla as she tries to navigate the final week(s?) in middle school and it is a masterpiece. My immediate comparison would be Lady Bird from last year and if you’ve like ever had a conversation with me about that movie you know that…

Solid Stuff

Aight I won’t lie, I personally found those whole expectations vs reality bits I was doing when talking about so many movies at once to be an enormous drag. So as I move down to movies I like just a little bit less I won’t be doing that. What will I be doing instead? Who knows? I’m just making it all up as I go really. My next category of movies is the “Solid Stuff”. It makes up largest part of 50 movies I saw over the past 8 months with 1 of the 50 fitting into this category.  Another…

Mission: Impossible – Procrastination

I knew I’d be doing a write-up on the Mission Impossible movies the night before the newest one came out. I just knew it. Luckily I kept an ok pace so I only have to write about one more, Rogue Nation. Uhh… Rogue Nation is pretty good. Def not as good as Ghost Protocol though. I just don’t think the stunts were as off the hook as they were in Ghost Protocol, except that plane one right at the beginning, that was nutty. Starting the movie off with something that bananas probably set my expectations too high though. I think…

Ant-Man and the Wasp

Look, I’m gonna eventually say something here that qualifies as a spoiler for Avengers: Infinity War so if you haven’t seen it yet you’ve been warned. I won’t be spoiling any details from the newest Ant-Man however. I had the opportunity to go see the new Ant-Man movie last night and I’ve gotta say that after what was an utterly depressing end to Infinity War it was kind of nice to go back to the fun little adventures of a hero like Ant-Man and not think about the fact that like over half of the Marvel characters were wiped from…

The Worst Movie That I Love to Death.

Over the weekend I applied a Windows update to my computer that basically broke everything and eventually led to me being forced to do a factory reset on my computer. This was enormously frustrating (why do you force these updates on my Microsoft?) but that’s not what I want to talk about today. That was just to set a context for why over the weekend I went back and re watched Romeo and Juliet. (the 1996 one with Leonardo DiCaprio, cross dressing and everyone screaming their lines.) I needed something to do whilst I reset all the stuff on my…

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…
