A Quiet place. Soundless horror.

This a truly unsettling Horror flick that, for some bizarre reason, I never got to see at the Cinema, and only managed to catch on Netflix quite recently. Directed by John Krasinski, it is a movie that plays with the most unexpected of elements; silence. Some time in the future, Earth has been invaded by …

Marriage Story. Uncomfortable truths.

This is the surprise film of the end of year. And it’s a movie that, sadly,we didn’t get to see on the big screen. Just like Martin Scorsese’s The Irishman before it, Netflix, once again, produces and finances a movie that, not only is better than most commercial releases we get nowadays, but it’s also …

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Copy and paste.

There was little doubt, after The Last Jedi came out back on December 2017, that some course-correcting would have to be done, after the massive disappointment that the movie was for the hardcore Star Wars fanbase. Things had been left on such a state of disarray from a story standpoint, so many concepts and ideas …

Knives Out. A surprisingly well made whodunnit.

This was a movie that I was reluctant to give it a watch, given Rian Johnson’s track record, as of late. I’m referring, of course, to The Last Jedi, which he wrote the screenplay for, in addition to directing it. It was, generally, on good word of mouth, from reputable sources, that I went to …

Solo: A Star Wars Story. A fun ride.

Pretty much everyone who followed the development of this production on social media back in the day, knows about the behind the scenes drama that this movie sadly became known for. How Kathleen Kennedy took a huge risk by electing Phil Lord and Chris Miller, mostly known for directing comedy, and animation features like The …

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Disney makes a great Star Wars movie. Who knew?.

With the release of the second Star Wars movie under the Disney banner, and the first of their planned spin-off movies, the House of the Mouse delivered what is, to date, the first really good Star Wars movie since the release of Revenge of the Sith. Yes, as I previously stated on my Revenge of …

Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Disney drops the ball.

With the release on December 2017 of the next Star Wars movie in the new trilogy, The Last Jedi, Disney committed one of the biggest offenses to the Star Wars lore ever seen on the big screen. Some very serious questions regarding character origin, and what was to become of said characters moving forward, were …

Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Disney takes over.

When back in 2012, George Lucas decided to sell Lucasfilm for $4.1 billion, he couldn’t have imagined how things would turn out in the long run. To give him credit, he put Kathleen Kennedy in charge, whom he had worked with over the years, and whom he wrongly thought, would try to protect his legacy. …

Return of the Jedi. Exciting Finale

The third and final Star Wars Original trilogy movie was released on May, 1983. Not surprisingly, it shot up to the Number One spot in the Box Office, accumulating a total of $480 million worldwide, a little less than the previous movie. As he’d done before with Empire Strikes Back, Lucas financed the movie himself, …

The Empire Strikes Back : Or how to make the sequel better than the original.

On May 21st, 1981, The Empire Strikes Back, the most anticipated sequel to the monster box office hit Star Wars, was released. After the massive success of Star Wars, and having already written a first draft for the upcoming sequel, Lucas recruited screenwriter Leigh Brackett, to help him refine the screenplay, and decided to offer …
