‘The Ultimate Playlist of Noise’ Review — A Sentimental Ride
You probably haven’t heard of this movie. It doesn’t have a Wikipedia page, it’s been excluded from most of the 2021 release calendars, and there has been very little marketing. However, this is a Hulu original film that premiered last week, and now that I have seen the film, I don’t know why.
A Letter From Donald Trump to Joe Biden
On this Inauguration Day, 100% reputable news source CNN released a report stating that former president Donald Trump (MAN, that feels good to type!) left newly elected President Joe Biden a “very generous letter” before not attending Biden’s inauguration like a petulant child. I, professional freelance journalist Jonathan Sim, have obtained a copy of that letter. This is what it read.
‘Outside the Wire’ Review — Subpar Sci-Fi Thriller
Netflix’s first original film of 2021 is Outside the Wire, a science fiction action thriller directed by Mikael Håfström (1408, Escape Plan). The film takes place in 2036 in the middle of a war. After Lieutenant Thomas Harp (Damson Idris) saves 38 men but loses two in a drone strike, he must team up with an android officer named Leo (Anthony Mackie) to prevent a nuclear attack.

Hollywood’s next attempt at a coronavirus exploitation flick comes in the form of Doug Liman’s Locked Down, a heist romantic comedy starring Anne Hathaway and Chiwetel Ejiofor. These two play a couple whose relationship has run its course. After being forced to stay on lockdown during the COVID-19 pandemic, the two decide to steal a £3 million diamond.

Happy New Year, everyone, and welcome to 2021! It’s a new year for movies that hopefully will not be as bad as last year. With vaccines rolling out, I hope that we can all get back to the movie theater experience safely and in full force.
The 2020 MacGuffin Awards—Honoring the Best in Film
Hello and welcome to the 2nd annual MacGuffin Awards. I am your host, film critic Jonathan Sim, and I will be guiding you through some of the best films this year has had to offer.

Top 10 Best Movies of 2020!
“It’s been a wonderful year for film, and here’s to 2020. Hope it’s even better.” I wrote that sentence on my “Top 10 Movies of 2019!” list last year. I know. How foolish of me to think that 2020 wouldn’t be the absolute dumpster fire of a year it was. With movie theater closures, nearly every movie release being pushed back, and a push to streaming services, 2020 has been the absolute worst year for film.
