Blade Runner 2049 | Movie Review

Blade Runner is a unique film. It didn’t initially perform well at the box office, but since its 1982 release, it has become known as one of the best science fiction films of all time. Denis Villeneuve is a unique director. His films cause people to think, and have been known to confuse modern audiences.

“Only God Forgives” Movie Review

Only God Forgives; my guess is that the title was chosen because the film makers realized they had such an atrocious piece of trash on their hands that they decided only God can forgive us after this. I didn’t go into Only God Forgives with any negative mindset. I rarely ever prejudge a movie based on what other critics say or what happens at Cannes or Sundance or any other film festival. You might remember that

“Gangster Squad” Review

I remember when I saw Godfather for the first time. I was home sick from high school and my dad put it on and said “watch this, you will like it.” From that moment on The Godfather has held a top ten spot in my favorite movies of all time; until now. Gangster Squad, starring Sean Penn (Mickey Cohan), Josh Brolin (Sgt. John O’Mara) and Ryan Gosling (Sgt. Jerry Wooters), was the perfect gangster movie. Gangster
