If you peruse my Twitter, you may be familiar with my affinity with the ASMR movement. If not, I don’t blame you, because even there I don’t make much mention of it. Instead of taking the time in this post to explain what ASMR is and why it’s so damn popular with kids these days, I’ll just drop a couple videos by prominent ASMRtists explaining in their own way what it is and how it works. I’ll wait here for your return. Continue reading “The Reese Movie Ultimately Doesn’t Work as an ASMR Experience”
Watching Pokémon Detective Pikachu was a lot like watching Venom. That is not a statement I thought I would be beginning this review with, but this is the reality in which I’ve created for myself. Continue reading “Pokémon Detective Pikachu Review”
Y’know what? Godzilla can do whatever it wants as long as it all looks fantastic. Godzilla, “Kiryu” (MechaGodzilla), and Mothra all look extravagant as can be here—almost breathtaking. I’m biased, though: I love these creature designs. Continue reading “Thoughts on Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S.”
I watched Norm of the North with my brother early last month, perfectly aware of the reputation it has as one of the worst animated films in the existence of time (that’s the magic, really). While it was definitely very bad, I didn’t find it to be as bad as everyone else seemed to think it was; merely an inadequate picture with really unfunny jokes and a juvenile storyline. Upon finishing it, I made the horrifying discovery that a sequel actually existed, and thus, the search for “terribad” content continued forward.
And by the power vested in me as a purveyor of terribad content, Norm of the North: Keys to the Kingdom is an exquisite masterpiece. Continue reading “Norm of the North Actually Got a Sequel and It’s Glorious”
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)”
“. . .all I really prioritize is seeing kaiju fights and great practical effects, while guffawing at the cheesy characters and dialogue.”

And so, the final day of the 2019 March of the Movies block comes to a close. It was a good run this year. While I certainly could’ve improved on my time management and depth of reviews, I feel I watched a lot of enjoyable and insightful films this month. To cap it all off, I decided to see something that has been collectively crowned as the greatest superhero-based film ever in the history of time. If you think this sounds exaggerative, why don’t you check its Letterboxd page real quick and get back to me. It should only take a few moments of your time.
