Ferris Bueller’s Day Off: A Brief Look at the Character Development of Cameron Frye

Ferris Bueller’s Day Off is some of the best writing John Hughes ever did. Now, I know what you’re going to say: But, what about The Breakfast Club? And, I hear you. This isn’t a conclusion that I’ve come to lightly. I’ve thought long and hard about this. And, after rewatching both films, I do... Continue Reading →

68. Unforgiven

Retired Old West gunslinger William Munny reluctantly takes on one last job, with the help of his old partner and a young man. It seems very fitting that Clint Eastwood’s last Western would be a Revisionist Western. Having built a career acting in “good guy vs. bad guy” type films, it is refreshing to see...

A Quiet Place (2018)

The best way I can possibly describe this film is: good and solid. From the story to the acting to the directing, those are the two words that apply most. SPOILERS AHEAD The film sets a tense tone right from the very beginning before we even see the creatures that are doing the hunting. The... Continue Reading →

Beauty and the Beast, It¸ The Mummy, Star Wars, Power Rangers, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Mary Poppins; all of these films, all of these series have been rebooted within the last several years or so. Why? Has Hollywood run out of fresh, new ideas? I don’t think so. I mean, just look at the studio... Continue Reading →

Hook (1991)

I’ve discovered in recent years that Hook is one of those films that, if you grew up with it, then you love it. However, if you did not, you may not be as fond of it. Personally, I have the word “Bangarang” tattooed on my arm, so that gives you an idea of where I... Continue Reading →

Earth Girls Are Easy (1988)

This is one of the dumbest, most ridiculous films I have ever seen, and I love the absolute shit out of it. There’s a reason that it gained a cult following after its release. It’s silly, bright, and one of the most “1980s” films that you will ever see. For those of you that haven’t... Continue Reading →

Veronica (2017)

So, for several days now, I have been hearing about this film called Veronica. Supposedly, it’s been scaring people so much, that they turn off the film before ever even finishing it. Right away, that puts some pretty high expectations on a horror film. Of course, I was going to watch it. I just finished... Continue Reading →

69. Tootsie

Michael Dorsey, an unsuccessful actor, disguises himself as a woman in order to get a role on a trashy hospital soap. For some reason, I have not been able to properly write about this film. I don’t know why. I mean, I enjoyed it. I enjoyed the acting and the writing. I loved watching the... Continue Reading →
