Free Fire

Star Rating: 4 out of 5 stars Every once in a while, there comes a film that has a simple that is almost too simple, and yet it ends up being more complex than a Christopher Nolan film. Mad Max: Fury Road is a popular example of this. A majority of the film is one long … Continue reading Free Fire

What Happened to Monday

Star Rating: 2 out of 5 stars What's better than watching Noomi Rapace in a film? Watching Noomi Rapace act against six other versions of herself!

At an early age, I had heard about Videodrome from a friend's dad who said it was "bizarre," and "banned." Which to a 12-year-old kid makes for … Continue reading Maps to the Stars
