Movie of the Month: Lady Bird

Yikes, yikes, yikes, I can’t believe it’s the last day of November. But I guess tomorrow I can start listening to Christmas music! I watched a lot of movies in November, I mean a lot of movies (I guess that’s what happens when your school’s on strike), so picking my favourite one was hard. I might have written about Thor Ragnorok but I decided I’ve written about a lot of Marvel superhero movies and that I need to change it up a bit. So as my title suggests, this month I am writing about Lady Bird. Continue reading “Movie of the Month: Lady Bird”

Why You Should Watch Movies in the Theatre

Everyone’s always waiting for this movie and that movie to be put on Netflix or digging through the depths of the Internet to find a free torrent so they can watch it on their 13-15 inch laptop screen. But I feel like movies are an art that is meant to be experienced on the big screen, they’re just so much better and here’s why: Continue reading “Why You Should Watch Movies in the Theatre”

Movie of the Month: Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Ever since I saw Kingsman: The Secret Service, I have been anxiously awaiting this movie. I’ll admit I had high expectations for this movie after having watched the trailers, and while overall I enjoyed the movie and it was relatively well done, I think it fell short in some ways. The Kingsman movies are a perfect combination of action/spy/comedy and they are honestly just so well done. The sequel, The Golden Circle, takes place one year after the events of The Secret Service. This time, Kingsman and Statesman (the American equivalent of Kingsman) must stop Poppy Adams, head of the world’s largest drug cartel from killing everyone who uses recreational drugs. Yes, this plot sounds absolutely ridiculous, but somehow it mostly worked and was a decent movie. Continue reading “Movie of the Month: Kingsman: The Golden Circle”

Movie of the Month: Baby Driver

I can’t believe it’s October on Sunday! I can’t believe I’ve been back at school for 4 weeks! Anyways, I watched a lot of movies in September but Baby Driver was by far my favourite (I know I know, I’m so behind on this but hey, I’ve seen it now). Baby Driver, directed by Edgar Wright is an action, heist type of movie where Baby (Ansel Elgort) a getaway driver for criminal mastermind, Doc (Kevin Spacey) and his partners in crime. Continue reading “Movie of the Month: Baby Driver”

Movie of The Month: Pulp Fiction

Now that I’m writing about Pulp Fiction, does that make me pretentious film trash? Probably.

Welcome to the world of sex, drugs, and mob violence. Pulp Fiction, directed by Quentin Tarantino, is widely regarded as a piece of postmodern art that you simply must see. This film incorporates drama, violence, and humour into three intertwined stories. The first story follows Jules Winnfield (Samuel L. Jackson) and Vincent Vega (John Travolta), two hit men, who are sent to secure a briefcase for their boss, Marcellus Wallace (Ving Rhames). Continue reading “Movie of The Month: Pulp Fiction”

Movie of the Month: Spiderman Homecoming

Admittedly, I didn’t watch enough movies in July so here I am again writing about a Marvel superhero movie (it’ll be the last one for a while, I promise). First, I just have to say I can’t believe I’m only 19 and I’ve lived through three Spidermans. Since I’ve lived through three Spidermans, I thought I’d do a little compare and contrast of the three different series.¬†Spiderman Homecoming was rebooted a little differently than The Amazing Spiderman with Andrew Garfield. Continue reading “Movie of the Month: Spiderman Homecoming”

Movie of the Month: Wonder Woman

If you know anything about me, you’ll know I love superhero movies. DC has made some rough movies *coughmanofsteelcough* but Wonder Woman was an exception to this. This was by far the best DC movie. Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) was raised on a hidden island by her mother Hippolyta. Little does she know that she is a demigoddess. As she grows up, she is trained to be a warrior along with the other Amazon women. Diana’s life is turned upside down when American Steve Trevor (Chris Pine) arrives on the island and reveals that World War I is happening outside the island. Diana wants to go and fight and make the world a better place. She believes that fighting can be used to create peace. This movie really shows women can be fierce fighters, loyal friends, and empathetic. Continue reading “Movie of the Month: Wonder Woman”

Movie of the Month: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

If you know me, I have been looking forward to this movie since it was announced. I had high expectations going to see this movie and it did not disappoint. I was entertained for all 2 hours and 18 minutes. I laughed, I almost cried (which I really wasn’t expecting), I loved the music, and I¬†decided I want twelve Baby Groots.
