Psycho Review

SPOILER WARNING I think I’m being very kind with my rating – perhaps overly kind.  While I’m not sure I would say that I had high expectations for Psycho, I will say that I was hopeful.  I have often been curious about how this film would work ever since I heard that it killed off … Continue reading Psycho Review

The Apartment Review

It’s amazing to me just how different someone’s conception of a film can be from what it actually turns out to be, especially because of marketing.  Consider the above image.  Fortunately, I don’t think I saw this front cover image before seeing the film, but if I had, I certainly would’ve gotten the wrong idea entirely. … Continue reading The Apartment Review

The Graduate Review: Upon Further Consideration…

NOTE: This is an amendment to a previous review of the same film.

The Party Review

There are times when a normal review is insufficient or inappropriate for a unique movie, and I think this is one of those times.  So, to boil it down to the key focal points, this review will focus on what I consider to be the movie’s two major pros and two major cons. Pro #1: … Continue reading The Party Review

It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World Review

Given my immense appreciation for comedy, I cannot help but appreciate an ode to comedy.  Comedy can be such a powerful force for good, making the burdens of life more bearable, and bringing important issues to light in a way that people can easily handle.  The beauty of comedy is that, even at its filthiest, … Continue reading It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World Review
