When you look within a donut hole, what will you find? Another donut hole, that leads to another donut hole within that donut hole. It's a never-ending barrage of donut holes- at least that's what Daniel Craig says, and in his Southern drawl, it sounds hilariously credible.
Knives Out (2019) definitely placed itself at the top of my 2019 films of the year list. Written and directed by Rian Johnson, he has proven once again that he knows how to take a genre, and take your expectations of a film, then just veer them off course. For some, they don't like it, but for others- like myself- it makes for an unpredictable and fun movie experience.
Before the release of this new Frozen film, I didn't listen to any of the singles, and I didn't read any news. I wanted to be as surprised as I could be during the film, and I wanted to feel the full impact of the themes. I knew this film would be trying something new, and I was pretty darn excited.
It was just yesterday that I was seated for Ford v. Ferrari (2019), and I did not know what to expect. I half expected something flat, but I also half expected something spectacular because of the amazing reviews I had read about the film. What I was left with was not "spectacular." No, the right wording for this film would be things like "genuine," "memorable," "outstanding," and more. This film was well-written, perfectly acted out, beautifully shot, action-packed, and full of so much honest emotion. It's a story told magically, and it captures the character and retro-feel of the time, while also never losing sight of the people it's trying to portray.
Netflix is Ready to Kickstart the Holidays with an All-New Teen Romcom- Let it Snow (2019) Netflix Original
Do you know why things are called "cheesy?"
Well, that's because no matter how much you may be cringing on the outside, you're secretly cheesing hard as f* on the inside. That's not actually true. The true definition of "cheesy" means something along the lines of "cheap" and "inauthentic." When it comes to romantic comedies, however, my definition will suffice and is the only way that I can explain this film I just watched on Netflix called Let it Snow. Its a Winter Wonderland of a film with all loveable things like breakfast, a pig, Joan Cusack, and of course, love.
Jojo Betzler (Roman Griffin Davis), 10 years old; at the beginning of the film, he is ready to become a man. He is a Nazi in his mind because of his many swastikas and his fanaticism of Hitler- who also happens to be his imaginary friend.
Taika Waititi plays Adolf Hitler, wrote, and directed this satirical comedy-drama about Jojo, nicknamed Jojo Rabbit, a German boy at the end of World War II. Now, it is important to remember that this is the end of the war, meaning the Germans are losing the war, and they are very desparate.
