Retro Review: Equilibrium (2002)

I had heard so many mixed reviews about Equilibrium. Some said it was a classic hit, others said it was a Matrix-wannabe. And with it now gone as I write this, I was luckily able to give the flick a try before getting removed from Netflix. Directed by Kurt Wimmer, Equilibrium follows a futuristic world in

Film Review: Lion (2017)

2017: New year, means this girl’s finally gonna post some reviews on new movies, right? Yes sireee. For today’s update, I will be reviewing 6-time Oscar nominee, Lion. I know what you’re thinking. “Whoaaaa, it won six Oscars?” No little petunia, see that’s where you’re wrong. I said nominee, not winner. But even so, it sure as heck is

Film Review: Mad Max: Fury Road (2015)

I chose to watch Mad Max: Fury Road because this flick was recommended to me numerous times by friends and family. Plus with its attainment of an enormity of awards, I wanted to know if it was worth the frenzied hype. Directed by George Miller, Mad Max: Fury Road takes place during post-apocalyptic times. Years after

Retro Review: Underworld (2003)

Underworld this and Underworld that. Vampires, werewolves, leather pants: I think it’s safe to say we’ve all heard of this cult hit. But was it worth the supposed cult-hype? Directed by Len Wiseman, Underworld opens up describing an ancient war between the vampires and their sworn enemies, the Lycans, (violent werewolves). Selene (Kate Beckinsale) is an

Film Review: Joy (2015)

I never understood the hate for this movie—especially when it came out. Because of this, when I finally decided to watch the film my expectations for this flick were quite low. Directed by David O. Russell, Joy stars Jennifer Lawrence as Joy Mangano—a divorced single mom who juggles the hectic schedule of raising two children,

Film Review: The Wolf of Wall Street (2013)

“Omigawwd! It was heeeelllaa funny! AHAHAHAHA” was the same statement I heard over and over again regarding Wolf of Wall Street. “Really?” I’d ask. “Yesssuh. I watched it like three times at the movies!” So that meant Martin Scorsese’s flick was a masterpiece, right? Based off Jordan Belfort’s life, Wolf of Wall Street follows Jordan

Film Review: The Gift (2015)

Far too often have we fallen prey to cliché horrors and thrillers. Evil spirit that, dude trying to kill people this. With the lack of fresh, original ideas, I can say we’ve all gotten sick of the horror genre. But due to the insistence of my sister and the good ratings The Gift received on

Retro Review: You’ve Got Mail (1998)

Today, Hollywood seems to be bland in movie ideas. But what if I told you that a while back, there were actually good movies afloat–especially romantic comedies? I always remembered my mom watching You’ve Got Mail back when I was a kid, and especially how she was really fond of it. Having grown up, (and

Film Review: Room (2015)

Never had I paid much attention to Oscar-nominated films. Sure, some of them were good, but usually they turned out to be a cluster of drama and nonsense. Nevertheless, I decided to be a bit more open-minded and give more films a try. Little did I know I’d savagely seize a movie called Room off

Film Review: Don’t Breathe (2016)

  Far too often do we roll our eyes whenever we hear a new horror/thriller has come out. After all, the majority of today’s horror genre is stuffed with clichés and cheap jump-scares. How can they even compete with classic films that have set our standards high, such as The Shining or The Exorcist? And
