Bio: I am a huge fan of film and television, I watch as many films as possible. I am a writer, I write poetry, stories and I have recently began working on my first screenplay. I am passionate about someday being a screenwriter or Director. I love the film industry. I also like to review films and look at them as deeply as I possibly can, so that I can have discussions with others who have seen the same movie.
|92 T9||The Hurricane (1999) - Jan 12, 2011
"For a while now I have found myself strangely attracted to the story of Rubin Carter. This film tells that story, and does such a fantastic job in doing so. Very raw with emotion and characterization "The Hurricane" captures the social injustices of American past. Washington is fierce in the lead role, capturing each and every layer of Carter's emotions with such convincing force. "
|84 T7||All the Money in the World (2017) - Mar 29, 2018
"Without Christopher Plummer coming in and excelling the way he did this film may have been half as good. We have no idea what the original vision for this role would have looked like, but Plummer alongside Wahlberg and Williams does his best to create tension. The film jumped all over the map and that hurt the message of the film. Still a quality film that does a good job shaping the narrative around the talents of the cast who create a stunning portrait of a true story."
|99 T10||Creed (2015) - Dec 02, 2015
"Creed is one hell of a film from start to finish. Immediately we are given a reason to connect with Adonis Johnson . Full of heart, courage and determination, Creed exemplifies how hard work can pay off. Jordan is a phenomenal young actor and this is the best work from Stallone in years. Jordan shows great chemistry with Stallone, calling Rocky Unc most of the film. It was the tender moments he shared with Rocky and leading lady Tessa Thompson that really showed his range and vulnerability."
|98 T10||Dear White People (2014) - Jan 24, 2015
"It's provocative, it's controversial and it is one hell of a debut film that captures the essence of our modern society. Justin Simien creates characters that face real life pressures every time they walk around the campus. The face racial issues, prejudice and the pressures of having to live up to certain predetermined notions. This is a film about real people, struggling to do the right things, say the right words and live according to the right actions. A definite must see."
|80 T6||Everything, Everything (2017) - May 21, 2017
"Everything, Everything tries to give you a little bit of just about everything, except for an ending that does really stay true to the overall tone of the movie. The "twist" involving her mother just felt like a nice way to wrap up a love story. Had they gone with the less severe form of the illness I feel like their love would have felt more engaging at the end. By the end their love had nothing to overcome and that was what you were lead to believe. That it could overcome all odds"
|98 T10||Black Mass (2015) - Sep 30, 2015
"Johnny Depp is in top form and that proves to easily be the films biggest asset. With all these Hollywood players playing real life gangsters and FBI agents this film just keeps adding layers of depth that make it such an engaging and tense film. Depp once again proves he is much better with 3 dimensional characters and should stick to powerhouse performance like this one. Its still early yet in 2015 for films, but this has all the makings to be one of my top 5 films of the year. "
|98 T10||The Punisher (2017) - Dec 27, 2017
"A darker and violent look at the current state of America with betrayal, guns, secrets and murder. Frank Castle is the epitome of PTSD shown on screen and Jon Bernthal perfectly balances a man torn by his past and a man hell bent on destroying the ones responsible. The show really picks up after episode 7 with the action. Bernthal raised the bar and his fellow cast mates matched him on a level of pure intenisty very few shows carry through out. Bring on season two. Frank Castle is here to stay."
|83 T7||The Ghost Writer (2010) - Mar 20, 2010
"A film that prides itself on keeping focused on a simple story rather then getting out of hand. There are some fine peformances in this film, and there is some tension as the secrets build and the story unravels. Brosnan is really good in this film and personally I wish he would have been in a tad more scenes. Ewan Mcgregor as well gives off a fine performance in what could have become a mess. Thrilling, intense and real and that is all you can ask for."
|90 T9||Rise (2018) - Apr 18, 2018
"Rise is lead by the incredible musical and acting talent of its cast. Radnor is pure gold in the lead role and Auli`l Cravalho does a fantastic job of leading the younger cast. At times maybe the message of pushing ones comfort zone is a bit too preachy but it ultimately has a strong message worth conveying to an intelligent audience. Definitely has potential even moving beyond season 1 and my hope is to see where this story leads over a good 4 to 5 year run. "
|99 T10||The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012) - Apr 20, 2013
"Never have I been so captivated by a coming of age story. This film had it all, from light hearted moments of friendshipand love, to very emotional scenes of abuse and depression. It is one of few films that actually gets growing up right, which is a tough thing to do for a film. It provides the three leads with powerful personalities and it soars from there thanks to three incredible and enaging performances from Lerman, Watson and Miller. A definite must see, you will not be disappointed."
