After Yang (2022) – Movie Review

March 4, 2022 / 0 Comments
Posted in

The solemn and pensive After Yang resounds with sadness and grief; yet it is a celebration of loved ones passed on. We mourn because of the hole they leave in our lives, but they are also the cause of healing and renewal. Based on the short story “Saying Goodbye to Yang” by Alexander Weinstein, director/screenwriter […]

No Exit (2022) – Movie Review

February 25, 2022 / 0 Comments

Real talk: You can’t write about a movie titled No Exit that features a group of strangers forced to be in one room and immersing themselves into the circumstances that brought them there without at least acknowledging the obvious similarities to Jean-Paul Sartre’s 1944 play. Sure, it’s the easy route, especially seeing how this movie’s […]

The Cursed (2022) – Movie Review

February 16, 2022 / 0 Comments
Posted in

For the first two-thirds of The Cursed, we are abjectly throttled and abused, subjected to witnessing acts of horror and befoulment to the point of numbness. This film does not hesitate in getting straight to the point with shocking gore and dismemberments; one such grisly incident paves the way for the rest of the story […]

I Want You Back (2022) – Movie Review

February 11, 2022 / 0 Comments
Posted in

I Want You Back is another collection of romantic comedy cliches given enough spark by its leads to make viewers at least stay until the end, even though the film follows the rom-com playbook to the letter. There really isn’t much innovation in this cinematic pantheon, is there? The “Someone loses their significant other and […]

Marry Me (2022) – Movie Review

February 10, 2022 / 0 Comments

There’s a familiarity in the notes which Marry Me hits. It’s a movie that seems like it’s been done before, especially with its “superstar meets and falls in love with a regular person” modus operandi. But there’s a vein of genuineness that runs through this movie like a river giving life to the barren land […]

The Fabulous Filipino Brothers (2022) – Movie Review

February 8, 2022 / 0 Comments

Speaking as a Filipino-American, it’s always wonderful to see us represented in the things we consume, and we’re insanely proud of it. No matter if it’s in literature, music, film, television, or seeing a restaurant bearing the Filipino flag while we drive here in America – we always stop and check it out. In recent […]

The Abandon (2022) – Movie Review

February 6, 2022 / 0 Comments

Official Closing Night Film selection for the 2022 Mammoth Film Festival. Low-budget films usually have one North Star guiding them through production, post-production, distribution, and exhibition: Make your limited resources count and make it look good. The Abandon is no different, spending 95% of its running time sealed in a room with no doors or […]

Sundown (2022) – Movie Review

February 4, 2022 / 0 Comments
Posted in

The whole of Sundown is spent observing the odd actions of an Englishman named Neil (Tim Roth) as he saunters through downtown Acapulco, looking and acting like a beach bum while staying in a low-rent hotel across the street from the beach. This would be fine, were it not for the opening scenes which show […]

Jackass Forever (2022) – Movie Review

February 3, 2022 / 0 Comments

Okay. Y’all remember the NBC television series The Good Place by Michael Schur, which featured a group of misfits rallying around one of their own as their leader, shepherded by an older man who knew more about what was going on than they did? And through multiple lifetimes of hard knocks and lessons, they become […]

Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes (2022) – Movie Review

January 26, 2022 / 0 Comments
Posted in

The ultimate in low-budget filmmaking and the ultimate in storytelling, Beyond the Infinite Two Minutes (Japanese title: Droste no hate de bokura) absolutely shellacks most major productions with a simple, low-key conceit and absolutely wows with its execution. The movie adheres to its own rules – until an appropriate time – and boasts a lively spirit […]
