The Last Jedi was a very flawed film. Multiple film critics, including popular Youtube group RedLetterMedia, have dragged it across the ground for its incessant amount of logical leaps, goofy theatrics, and horribly uneven tone. All of these are issues I, too, found to be distracting when I watched the film. With all of these swirling opinions surrounding the film, which includes a harsh distaste from the general populace of Star Wars fanatics of the past, I went into my second viewing rather pessimistic that I would enjoy it as much as I did the first time.
Something strange happened: I didn’t like it any less, nor any more. My opinion stayed more or less the same, and the reasoning came from a quality most fans hissed at quite prominently: change. Continue reading “Star Wars: Episode IX Will Probably Be Bad (To Me)”

I recently ordered this t-shirt from TeePublic, and I gotta say, it reinvigorated some desire to delve back into the cheesy goodness that is the Godzilla franchise. Bonkers as it may be, I always find myself enjoying the theatrics in a way that’s rare from any film franchise. Continue reading “Day Twenty-Nine: Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla (MotM 2019)”
Cinderella Man is among my favorite films, at least I believe so. One of the major proponents of that film is the sport of boxing, which, while irrefutably violent, has some beauty surrounding it. When We Were Kings was something of a back-up plan today, as the original film was much longer and I ended up watching it fairly late.
