The Terror

I only decided to check out The Terror last week, once its season was over, and it only took me a few days to watch the whole thing (I finished by binging the final 4 episodes). What a fantastic series. It’s a slow burn, that’s for sure, and so I feel that watching it like […]

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

I finally decided to give Brooklyn Nine-Nine a try (from season 1, on Netflix) and I gotta say that it’s really growing on me — to a point where I binged close to the entire season this weekend. I wouldn’t put it on the same level as The Good Place or The Last Man on Earth […]

Jane Got a Gun

After Red Sparrow, Terminal, and Proud Mary, I capped my evening off with this movie, which I’d been wanting to watch for what feels like forever. This ended up being my favorite film of the bunch. I’ve been watching a lot of westerns lately, and this is a very good one, made even more interesting […]

Proud Mary

After Red Sparrow and Terminal, it was on to Proud Mary. This film has its moments, but they are far and few between. I basically wanted to see a movie in which Taraji P. Henson is kicking ass, and there’s a scene towards the end that’s terrific, but it’s only 5 minutes long (it’s the […]

Terminal

Following Red Sparrow, my 2nd film of the night was Terminal, and this is a weird one. I didn’t really know what to expect, but I was attracted by the stylish visuals that I saw in the trailer. In the end, that’s pretty much the main reason to watch it, as it has some incredible […]

Red Sparrow

A week ago, on a Saturday night, I ended up watching a quadruple-bill of films all lead by women, and I kicked it off with this. I was actually expecting something that was more action-oriented — something more Atomic Blonde, for example — but instead found it to be more on the dramatic spy thrillers […]

Vertigo

After Bond and Indy, I’ve started a new weekly film series (something to watch on Sunday nights) and I’ve decided to re-watch Hitchcock (not all, but my favorite movies of his). I’m a big fan of his films, and I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve watched most of them, so perfect time […]

Planet of the Apes

The thing that really strikes you here is just how over-the-top Charlton Heston’s acting is throughout, although I guess it’s of the era. It was a fun watch — I’m sure I must have seen it ages ago, but didn’t really remember much, other than of course the famous ending. In fact, I imagine it […]
