All The Money In The World

The fact-based drama All The Money in the World is both timely and timeless, depicting the greediness of our world, where, unfortunately, the money is idolized and considered of more importance than the human life itself.

Five Things to See Before Annihilation

When I caught the trailer for Annihilation, Alex Garland’s (Ex Machina) upcoming eerie sci-fi enterprise starring Natalie Portman, in the theater the audience greeted it with a mix of intrigue and confusion. There were murmurs of “what is that?” and “that looks weird.” People seem not to know what to make of this movie. So, … Continued

Funny Story

Directed by Michael J. Gallagher, Funny Story is the story of a conceited actor on a road trip with his semi-estranged daughter’s special friend up to Big Sur. I’m keeping it vague here because there are some twists and turns I don’t want to give away that authentically had me surprised. The movie takes some … Continued
