Best films of 2017

Alright movie lovers ๐Ÿ™‚ Here we are again. Honestly, it feels like last week that I did my best of 2016 movies list. I guess time really does fly when we look back. How have you guys been? I’ve been quite caught up with University and haven’t written as many reviews as I would’ve liked…

Mudbound review; Wake up America

Mudbound, one of 2017’sย  highly acclaimed films recently released on Netflix, is an interwoven story of American history and life. Race, family and war are big themes being explored with such an expansive vision, and yet the stories that underlie them are so painfully personal and intimate. Dee Rees’ film is not just another ‘black’…

Wind River review; Beautiful and unpretentious.

This poster was made by the talented Eileen at SG_Posters. ๐Ÿ™‚ I simply couldn’t resist using it for my review!! Read on for my review. Wind River is my favourite Taylor Sheridan film and one of my favourite films of the year. Yes, I freaking love Wind River!! There’s a certain unpretentious charm about all…

Good Time review; Thrillingly tragic

Good Time, as ironic a title as the Safdie Brothers intended it to be, is a film with no reprieve. Centered around the crime-hustling Connie (Robert Pattinson) who tries to re-connect with his autistic brother after a robbery gone wrong, this non-stop thrill ride is an assault on the senses from start to finish. Films…

The Beguiled; A harrowing look at our inability to accept our own nature.

Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled is a softly beguiling and bewitching experience. The undercurrents of human nature and darkness course through the film’s steely and static frames. She has previously stated her desire to tell the story of The Beguiled through the lens of the female perspective. The result is interesting. Some believe Sofia Coppola portrays…

Lady Macbeth; Victorian-era piece subverts the moral code

Lady Macbeth is the second really good film I’ve seen this year (the first being Graduation). Logan is very good in many ways and falls just behind in what has been a rather interesting year for movies. For starters, I can see these three movies being in my top 20 films of the year. Similar…

Get Out review; Stay woke

Get Out is Jordan Peele’s comedy-horror satire that highlights the underlying racism against Blacks in modern America. Peele draws from everyday conversational tropes that seem innocent enough (and they might very well be) and turns them into a frighteningly comedic and entertaining horror-thriller. Get Outย calls to attention a conscious/unconscious effort to segregate, objectify and disempower…

Best films of 2016

This is going to be a long post but I hope you enjoy it ๐Ÿ™‚ So once again, here we are. 2016 has been a crazy year to say the least. This year’s movies have been a reflection of a sentiment that our individual voices are important, and that different parts and groups of society…
