Once Upon A Time…In Hollywood Review

Last October, I wrote about Drew Goddard's Bad Times at the El Royale, his second film in the director's chair. In it, I explain how the film has Quentin Tarantino's DNA all over it, with some of the less ideal qualities removed.. Most notably, Goddard's script does not rely on using the n-word to portray the…

About My Absence

Not that I imagine it has been any significant loss for anyone, but it's been three months since I've written anything for this blog, and not for a lack of content. In that time, I've seen a solid handful of movies, including: Booksmart, the tremendously funny directorial debut for Olivia Wilde, Midsommar, Ari Aster's blessedly less upsetting,…

Several Weeks Of Trailers That Star Wars Dunked On

Built up during the end credits of the appropriately bleak Infinity War as the hero who…

Trailers February 11-February 17

Was able to stay up to date this time around, which I regret because I had to watch a trailer for Fifty Shades 4 Teenz, but I also got to see a surprisingly dope teaser for the sequel to the most oversaturated movie in recent memory, and a couple other movies I'm surprisingly here for, so…

Glass Review

Hey, y'all! I'm back! I know it's been a month since I've posted anything, let alone the weekly movie trailers post (those are a lot of work, and I've been busy in the real world, so I haven't gotten around to them. I'll have to see how behind I really am before deciding how I'm…
