The Green Knight (2021) – David Lowery

The Green Knight is a stunning and lyrical film that completely blew me away with its storytelling and visuals. Using the 14th-century poem, Sir Gawain and the Green Knight as its launching basis, Lowery’s tale is fantastical and beautiful, telling the tale of a young Gawain (Dev Patel) looking to make his way in the…

Bull Durham (1988) – Ron Shelton

I love a good baseball movie, there’s something inherently joyful about them, whether it’s the game, itself, the sound of the crack of the bat, the tightly edited homages of games played, or the characters that step up to the plate, I love them, drama, comedy… is there a baseball musical? I’d probably dig that…

Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey (1991) – Peter Hewitt

Two years after their Excellent Adventure, Bill S. Preston, esquire (Alex Winter) and Ted Theodore Logan (Keanu Reeves) went on a Bogus Journey, the next title up in DK Canada’s Monsters in the Movies, because of a little character by the name of Death (William Sadler). Though the climax of the film rewrites some of…

Carrion Comfort (1989) – Dan Simmons

I’ve been enjoying the Dan Simmons’ books I’ve been reading, and finally had time to dig into his epic, and much hailed horror novel, Carrion Comfort. A massive read, the book is actually horrifying in the traditional sense. I’ve always enjoyed horror novels, and the like, but this novel is truly frightening, and it is…

Proxima Command – An Evening’s Sci-Fi Adventure

Ever since I was a kid and first discovered Star Wars, Star Trek, and science fiction in general, I had dreams of stepping onto the bridge of a starship, or spaceship, and exploring, seeking out new life forms, engaging in intergalactic battles, or watching the stunning starscape slip past my windows. I remember sitting at…

Tomb Raider (2018): Blu-Ray Review

Video game movies are generally more miss than hit, but that hasn’t stopped companies from trying to find a way to adapt them to the big screen. Warner Brothers takes a stab at it this time around using the rebooted game series as its launching point to give us a look at a younger version…

Life is Beautiful (1997) – Roberto Benigni

Walking away with Oscars for Best Foreign Film, Best Original Score, and Best Actor in a Leading Role for Benigni, Life is Beautiful is the next recommendation from the Great Movies – 100 Years of Film book following my screening of Schindler’s List. In this partly whimsical tale that touches on true humour while facing…
