TV and Film

“Filmmaking has the power to fortify the feeble, unify the divided, raise the abandoned and inspire the ignorant.”
Abhijit Naskar, The Film Testament

Quarantarantino

For a long, long time, I have been meaning to watch all of Quentin Tarantino’s movies. Being stuck at home, I figured now is the perfect time! So I watched all 9 of the films written and directed by Tarantino, and I was pleasantly surprised. While they were all pretty lengthy — as the yearsContinue reading “Quarantarantino”

Waco, on Netflix

If you’ve been on Netflix lately, you’ve probably seen some hype about the show Waco. It’s a six-part series featuring Taylor Kitsch and landing in the “Top 10” section of Netflix, what’s not to like? Well, if you love the American Crime Story from FX (like the OJ Simpson miniseries or the Versace one), youContinue reading “Waco, on Netflix”

Beneath Us

Wow. Not many movies leave me speechless. But wow. What a take on our society today. If you’ve ever seen Blackkklansman, you know how powerful that ending is. It leaves the entire movie theater silent, processing what they’ve just seen and how it relates to modern society. The ending of this movie had the sameContinue reading “Beneath Us”

The Lodge

If you are a horror fan, you NEED to catch “The Lodge” while it’s still in theaters. It’s still on at Regal Opry and Regal Green Hills for the remainder of the week if you’re in Nashville. “The Lodge” is the same raw, haunting style that you see in “Hereditary” and “Midsommar,” and I’d rankContinue reading “The Lodge”

Onward

This preview just did not really speak to me, but I couldn’t figure out why…. I’m not a huge fan of mythological adventure, the characters aren’t as cute as Pixar’s normal characters, maybe something else, I wasn’t too sure.  But when I got the chance to attend an advance screening of the film, I tookContinue reading “Onward”

Downhill

               I’m not sure you can find this movie in theaters anymore, but that’s okay.  You aren’t missing anything.  With Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus as lead characters, I (at first) thought it was very strange that this movie did not get much press.  Quirky preview, (pretty) big names, why aren’t they advertising this asContinue reading “Downhill”

The Rhythm Section

A vague, catchy title, a trio of A (minus) list actors, and an action-filled trailer: what could go wrong? Well, it turns out, a lot. . . Blake Lively plays a struggling twenty-something who is trying to accept her new reality. Three years prior to the opening scene, her entire family died in a planeContinue reading “The Rhythm Section”

Dolittle

Robert Downey Jr.’s first movie following his epic run as Ironman is none other than Dolittle, a classic children’s adventure film in which he can speak to animals. This movie has an all-star cast: John Cena, Kumail Nanjiani, Emma Thompson, Selena Gomez, Craig Robinson, and Octavia Spencer all provide voice-overs for the animals in thisContinue reading “Dolittle”

AppleTV’s Servant

Now that all the episodes have been released, I feel like I can adequately review Servant, Apple TV’s thriller tv show directed and produced by legendary M. Night Shyamalan. I had high hopes going into this– I am a huge Shyamalan fan, and after seeing the suspenseful previews for months I finally broke down andContinue reading “AppleTV’s Servant”

Underwater

I went into this movie with zero expectations. I knew it was a thriller, I knew it was about some workers in a station on the ocean floor, and I knew it was Kristen Stewart, but that was about it. . . . An odd combination. When we arrived at the theater, we were theContinue reading “Underwater”

1917 in Regal 4DX

I had the pleasure of seeing Sam Mendes’s 1917 in the 4DX theater at Opry Mills, and WOW what an experience. Let’s dive into the actual theater first, and then I’ll get into the movie. The signage outside the theater reads like an amusement park ride. Rain? Wind? Ticklers? When you walk in, there areContinue reading “1917 in Regal 4DX”

Messiah, now on Netflix

Messiah is a new 10-part series on Netflix with some serious Jack-Ryan-esque vibes. Rather than John Krasinski, however, viewers will find Michele Monaghan as the CIA operative protagonist. She works with several other government organizations to work to solve the mystery surrounding the titular character who first garners attention out in the Middle East.  AContinue reading “Messiah, now on Netflix”

Dark Waters

Dark Waters is a fascinating law thriller starring Mark Ruffalo, a corporate lawyer who takes on Dupont in this true story. Mark gives a great performance, seamlessly transitioning from a wallflower new law firm partner to a passionate attorney fighting for what he believes in. His character Rob Bilott (an Ohio attorney still practicing today)Continue reading “Dark Waters”
