Movie Review: “American Made”

Movie Review: “American Made”

There are two types of famous actors.

There are those who slide from film to film in a chameleon-like manner, constantly changing colours and taking on roles that push them to be something completely different from what they were before. The late Philip Seymour Hoffman was a classic example.

Movie Mondays: “Stronger”

Movie Mondays: “Stronger”

Every so often, there is a film that vocalizes the claustrophobia and hollowness of PTSD in just as an effective manner as any war movie ever could. Stronger, David Gordon Green’s biopic about the Boston Marathon bombings survivor Jeff Bauman, is the latest film to show just how overwhelming and depressive dealing with PTSD can be.

Monday movie reviews: “It”

Up until the age of maybe six or seven, I was afraid of the basement. I would stand at the top of the staircase in my old house, frozen in a state of fright as I gazed down into the shadowy abyss for minutes at a time. When the lights were off, I always thought there was something looming in […]

Film Fridays: La La Land review

La La Land has it all: singing, dancing, comedy, drama and romance. Mia (Emma Stone) is a struggling actress. Her life consists of running from her part-time job to auditions. Life hasn’t worked out the way she wanted it to. She thought she would’ve made it in L.A. by now, but she hasn’t. Sebastian (Ryan Gosling) is a down-on-his-luck jazz musician. […]

Film Fridays: Moana review

The thing that separates Moana from other Disney films is the culture it depicts. It’s rare for the Hawaiian culture to get a spotlight and Disney has now brought the land and culture to the big screen. When Moana is a young girl, the ocean calls to her and gives her a stone. She learns through oral stories that this […]

Film Fridays: Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk review

Billy Lynn (Joe Alywn) and his fellow soldiers have come back home to America for a victory tour. This comes after Lynn’s team, Bravo, are caught on camera in a harrowing battle in Iraq. Yet, the young soldier […]

Taking distracted driving seriously

It seems like there are so many ads about distracted driving. All I need to do is turn on the TV and during a commercial break, I’m sure to see an ad about using phones while behind the wheel. I believe they’re all necessary, because there are way too many road accidents in Toronto and nothing seems to be changing. […]

Film Fridays: Loving review

It’s shocking to think that in 1967, the state of Virginia had a law that prohibited interracial marriage. The new film Loving tells the story of an interracial couple’s fight to remain married and live in their state. The film is based on the true story of Richard and Mildred Loving, who fell in love in the state of Virginia. […]

Film Fridays: Doctor Strange review

It seems that Marvel has figured out what the movie-going audience wants and delivers it to the silver screen. This is no different with Doctor Strange. It was once said that the comic was the only one that wouldn’t work on screen. Well, somehow Marvel has made it work in very strange, pun intended, and unique ways. The film follows […]

Film Fridays: Hacksaw Ridge review

War is a big topic on the news all around the world. The subject is never a positive one and has an impact not only on the people directly involved, but on the world as a whole. People are seeking refuge, being taken away from their families, and soldiers and innocent civilians are dying everyday. So in the world that we […]

Review: Richard Linklater’s Everybody Wants Some!!

Imagine university life without cellphones and laptops. It may seem impossible. However, there was a time when plans were made using notes left on dorm room doors and parties happened without any minute-to-minute documentation on Snapchat. That time was 1980. Richard Linklater’s new film Everybody Wants Some!! perfectly captures the essence of this pre-social media era. It seems almost mystical for […]
