An incoherent, yet sweet film that's main problems are not its attractive leads, but its overly raunchy content, and its inability to focus on one plot point at a time. Read the full review »

An incredibly original film, Sleeping with other people brings something new to table, with its "je ne sais quoi", and has a welcome spot on my favorite rom coms, just because of Jason Sudeikis' charming and funny performance. The film is not with... Read the full review »

Alien (1979)

Alien (1979)

10 / 10
A bleak, shrill, claustrophobic horror, Alien utilizes its vast emptiness, to create something truly horrifying to the core. Sigourney Weaver's breakout role as the destined "badass" Ellen Ripley, is revolutionary, sparking the trend of female sci... Read the full review »

Spider-man three had infinite hype to live up to; unfortunately, it is disappointing on a lot of fronts, but it does deserve commendation for a few story-lines, and a bevy of action sequences that are dazzling to the eyes. The film is not overwhel... Read the full review »

Spider-man two studied the successes of The Empire Strikes Back, Aliens and T2 Judgment day, and emulated their darker tones, increased action, and heightened tension, to provide arguably one of the greatest sequels of all time. With rich characte... Read the full review »

A decidedly premature outing for the masked vigilante, The Amazing Spider-man loses the innocence and whimsy the original had, but provides enough source material accuracy and tantalizing effects to provide an experience worthy of its titular char... Read the full review »

A surprisingly deep and thoroughly entertaining journey through the emotional and sexual relationship of a straight man and a formerly lesbian woman. Kevin Smith's directing skills are duly at work here, as he brings all the factors of fine cinema... Read the full review »

Kevin Smith's direction may be strong and creative, but the narrative just isn't exciting enough to keep you invested for the rather short hour and 30 minute run-time. Read the full review »

Warcraft paints a picture of two juxtaposed cultures with vast differences. It succeeds in building each world, and showing off the gorgeous CGI involved in the production of said worlds, but some of the acting, and the characterization falls flat... Read the full review »

Batman & Robin is a mockery of everything the Batman character was and is meant to be. The film may be fun to laugh at, just for the sheer "cringyness" of its dialogue, and the risibility of its fight sequences, but the audacity the film has to di... Read the full review »

An overwhelmingly immense depletion in quality from Casino Royale, Quantum of Solace succeeds in providing classic James Bond action and charm, but doesn't excel in much else. Read the full review »

Classic Cinema at its finest, Seven Samurai has heart, and important values that do not change with age. The film is well paced for a 3 and a half hour movie, highlighting all the integral parts of each character's individual journey, to give us a... Read the full review »

Fargo (1996)

Fargo (1996)

10 / 10
Fargo has thrill and intrigue to spare, with charming characters and outstanding lead performances from William H. Macy and Frances McDormand, it's hard not to love this twisted tale of deception. Read the full review »

A masterpiece in character exploration, and a landmark in American filmmaking as a whole, David Fincher and Aaron Sorkin use their skills to weave a masterful web filled with regret, pride, passion and innovation. Read the full review »

The Graduate captures the essence of the post-university mentality with ease; in combination with it's topical accuracy, the film has great performances, purposeful music and a certain bitter-sweetness to it that will make you glad you aren't the... Read the full review »
