    The Quiet Man (1952)

    The Quiet Man (1952)

    In this article, we will be looking at 2019’s book “1001 Movies to See Before You Die” and going through each film in a random order that I have chosen. We will be looking at what constitutes this film to be on the list and whether I think this film deserves to be here at all. I want to make perfectly clear that I won’t be revealing details from this book such as analyses by film reporters who have written about the film in question, so if you want the book itself you’ll have to buy it. But I will be covering the book’s suggestions on which films should be your top priority. I wouldn’t doubt for a second that everyone reading this article has probably watched many of these movies anyway. But we are just here to have a bit of fun. We’re going to not just look at whether it should be on this list but we’re also going to look at why the film has such a legacy at all. Remember, this is the 2019 version of the book and so, films like “Joker” will not be featured in this book and any film that came out in 2020 (and if we get there, in 2021). So strap in and if you have your own suggestions then don’t hesitate to email me using the address in my bio. Let’s get on with it then.

    A Filmmaker's Guide to: Structuralism

    A Filmmaker's Guide to: Structuralism

    In this chapter of ‘the filmmaker’s guide’ we’re actually going to be learning about literature and film together. I understand that many of you are sitting in university during difficult times and finding it increasingly hard to study and I understand that many of you who are not at university or not planning on it are possibly stuck of what to do, need a break or even need to catch up on learning film before you get to the next level. This guide will be brief but will also contain: new vocabulary, concepts and theories, films to watch and we will be exploring something taboo until now in the ‘filmmaker’s guide’ - academia (abyss opens). Each article will explore a different concept of film, philosophy, literature or bibliography/filmography etc. in order to give you something new to learn each time we see each other. You can use some of the words amongst family and friends to sound clever or you can get back to me (email in bio) and tell me how you’re doing. So, strap in and prepare for the filmmaker’s guide to film studies because it is going to be one wild ride.

    Movie Review: 'Nomadland'

    Movie Review: 'Nomadland'

    Director Chloe Zhao is fast becoming one of the most reliably fascinating directors on the planet. Her stories are some of the most unique and challenging being told in modern American cinema. Zhao has an eye for detail in character that marks the truly great storytellers. The latest example of Chloe Zhao’s expanding brilliance is Nomadland, a beautifully sprawling story unfolding in the lower economic rungs of society.

    My 3 Unpopular Opinions About Film

    My 3 Unpopular Opinions About Film

    I have many unpopular opinions about film. In others, I have spoke about my discontent with the film "Titanic" and why I am against people who think Megan Fox is just 'a dumb [insert female slur here]'. I have spoken about various unpopular opinions about films that people normally view as universally amazing and I still have some that I want to roll off.

    Classic Movie Review: Hitchcock's Exhausting 'Torn Curtain'

    Classic Movie Review: Hitchcock's Exhausting 'Torn Curtain'

    On the Everyone’s a Critic Movie Review Podcast we’ve been exploring the work of Alfred Hitchcock of late, specifically his less remembered catalog. A few weeks ago, we were rightly appalled by the misogyny and dimwitted pop psychology of his Marnie, starring the recently departed Sean Connery. This week, November 29th, with Paul Newman starring in one of our featured movies of 1990, the crazy terrible Mr and Mrs Bridge, we decided to take the opportunity to watch Newman work with Hitchcock in 1966’s Torn Curtain.

    Classic Movie Review: The Stunning Boredom of Mr and Mrs Bridge

    Classic Movie Review: The Stunning Boredom of Mr and Mrs Bridge

    Mr and Mrs Bridge is a criminally boring 1990 drama about a couple in the 1940s dealing with a changing world that is leaving them behind. Mr and Mrs Bridge are played by real life, beloved Hollywood couple, Paul Newman and Joanna Woodward as two characters so astonishingly dull that I am shocked someone decided to make a movie about them. That this was based on a beloved novel by an award winning novelist isn't surprising as I will explain.

    I Watched Sucker Punch For The First Time

    I Watched Sucker Punch For The First Time

    If you read the title, I am here to talk about watching Sucker Punch for the very first time. I heard about this movie before and seen pictures of it, but I didn’t watch it until last night around 11pm out of boredom, and oh my god it’s wild.
