I Heart Huckabees (analysis)


I Heart Huckabees is one of my all-time favorite movies. It is also one of the many movies that is extremely funny and enjoyable until you start taking it too seriously. So, with that in mind, here's an essay I wrote that does exactly that.

Oblivion (review)


Before we get going here I'd just like to say in the interest of full disclosure that I actually like Tom Cruise. I don't just not dislike him like the rest of the world seems to, I fully enjoy most of the roles I've seen him play. If you don't like Tom Cruise because he's a crazy nutjob scientologist or whatever you should probably get your head straight. Being a crazy nutjob of any variety doesn't make you a bad actor (just kidding I understand that it can be distracting even if I don't empathize). If you don't like him because you don't think he's a good actor then I guess that's too bad and you might not like Oblivion as much as I did (also you're wrong and I hate you)

Spider (review)


I know at the end of my Teeth review I promised to review something normal this week. And although (compared to Teeth) David Cronenberg's Spider (2002) is a relatively normal psychological thriller, I also know I'm going to talk about it in an openly Freudian way. So to those hoping for something like my Italian Job review, where I just talk about movies being movies and stuff, I am sorry. Spider is worth it though. Expect spoilers throughout.

Teeth (review)


I feel like there should be some sort of disclaimer up here. Well, if you don't know what Teeth is about then maybe go plug it into Google or something. Just stay away from the image search until you know what you're getting into.
