The Transformers: The Movie Review

the transformers the movie 1

Yes, it’s seriously called that.

I try not to exaggerate when I say this, but this is one of the first films I ever remember watching, in a dark room accompanied by my cousin attempting not to fall asleep. At such a young age, I was amazed at all the action scenes, the robo-transformations, and the rock n’ roll soundtrack. Despite this initial introduction, I have seen this film very few times… maybe twice in my life? Three times? All of those times came at a very young age, likely at six or seven-years-old. Last night, I watched it again after nearly twenty years. How does it hold up? Continue reading “The Transformers: The Movie Review”

A Very Loud Noisemaker Killed “A Quiet Place”: My Brain

a quiet place 5

Ironically enough, in a recent post for this blog I admitted that I had an issue with mocking subject matter in a way that made me sound elitist and narcissistic. Approximately a week later, I have found a subject that brought out once again that traditional style of ranting to myself for personal pleasure; a purely emotional response filled with rage, frustration, and a negative merriment reminiscent of my old persona. Once again, I must fight the urge to outright mock the living hell out of a film so bad in my eyes that I come across as a shit-throwing bigot for kicks. This in mind, I wish to rationally and calmly (relative term) explain why I think this film is so astonishingly awful.

Something odd has been occurring to me lately when indulging in trilogy films. Whether it be Spider-ManAlien, Nolan’s Batman, or now this, I seem to not be impressed by the second outing, which many fans of these franchises consider either better or more enjoyable than their first entry. I swear I’m not intending to have this happen—I guess I’m just a hipster? Continue reading “Day Thirty: Evangelion: 2.0 You Can (Not) Advance (MotM 2018)”

Day Twenty-Nine: Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone (MotM 2018)

evangelion 1.0

There’s an interesting thing in regards to this string of movies. For whatever reason, the parent series is considered a classic of the anime medium, and many fans hold it with high esteem and a symbol of creative genius. I’ve seen the parent series. I liked it quite a bit. It certainly has more substance and nihilistic anxiety than basically every anime to follow or precede it. I would recommend it to any anime enthusiast and to people outside of this colorful(?) medium, too. Continue reading “Day Twenty-Nine: Evangelion: 1.0 You Are (Not) Alone (MotM 2018)”
