Welcome back to the Decade Decathlon, where we're taking an extended look back at the past decade of filmmaking to see what worked, what didn't, and what stories we can learn from the past. I'm a tired of using the phrase "greatest of all t...

Sundance: The Best Fest of the Rest

There is no festival like the Sundance Film Festival! I’ve been to several film festivals across the world and they all pale in comparison to the energy, quality and enjoyment experienced in the mountains of Park City, Utah. The 2019 ...

Rumor: Jake Gyllenhaal wanted for Batman

(Note: I'm referring to Gyllenhal's creepy turn in the film Nightcrawler, not the X-Men character. I suppose explaining a joke means it's not a good one, but here we are.) It's been pretty clear that Ben Affleck hasn't been having as m...

 
 
Review: Okja photo

Review: Okja

Bong Joon-Ho's Okja is a chimera of genre and tone. It's a lovable mutant like its titular super pig--the best super pig, we're told, the superlative like something out of Charlotte's Web. Which makes sense. As a director, Bong has avoided ...

Review: Everest

You've seen Everist before. Not just in the sense that we've all seen a billion movies about mountains killing people or in the sense that it's based on the same true story that Into Thin Air was based on. You've seen it before be...

Nightcrawler Review photo

Review: Nightcrawler

Nightcrawler has come out of nowhere to become one of my favorite films of 2014. As of right now, I'd even go as far to say that it is my favorite overall. I didn't even know it existed until a few months ago where a brief teaser, revealing...
