The Maltese Falcon (1941)

I apologize for the lack of interaction here. I’ve been swamped with work and school, as usual. I was able to shift a few due dates to appease my inner procrastinator, so I’m able to blog now! Cinemark had a winter classic movie series that played every week for the past month: Blade Runner: The …

#OscarsSoWhite, yeah I’m getting in on this too

I think (white) people are missing the point about the #OscarsSoWhite campaign. I’m just another talking head with stars in my eyes in this dialogue. Take from it what you wish. Here’s the way I look at it. The heart of the issue is that we’re not creating roles for people of color to even …

The Last Witch Hunter (2015)

I saw this movie a few months ago but I forgot I had this review in my files. On the surface, The Last Witch Hunter feels like Vin Diesel playing Vin Diesel in a Vin Diesel film, produced by Vin Diesel. And you may very well come away with that perspective, once you’re through. But …

I’m hard at work writing the last half of Electric Angels, a story I hope to put into my short story collection for my graduate thesis. I’m down to the wire as it’s due tomorrow, technically.

Inside Out (2015)

I had the pleasure of purchasing the opportunity to see the Fathom Event of Disney/Pixar’s Inside Out via a special link through D23. I saw it on Tuesday, June 16, a full three days before the weekend premiere. I really enjoy Fathom Events. It also helps that I live 6 minutes down the street from …

Snowpiercer (2013), John Wick: Chapter 1 (2014)

I’m just now getting over my crimson wave. I’ve been so zonked. I’ve been pigging out – well, more than normal – so now that I’m done, I’m back on track. I hope. I got back into Headspace, which for me, is a big accomplishment. I’ve started putting reminders on my phone as well. Habits …

Mystery of the Wax Museum (1933) / House of Wax (1953)

I decided to do a double feature of the original Mystery of the Wax Museum and its 50s remake, House of Wax. Mystery is a fun 30s romp… on the surface. I really only wanted to watch it because of Fay Wray. She’s my girl. It was a suspenseful thriller, and it hooks you from …
