Buffaloed (2019): Brief Review

Buffaloed directed by Tanya Wexler (2019), is a film about a girl who does her best to figure out and play the ultimate American game to become a wild success by financial means. The story is hilarious and some how very relatable. A young person making their way from the bottom to the top is aContinue reading “Buffaloed (2019): Brief Review”

Brokeback Mountain (2005): Brief Review

Brokeback Mountain directed by Ang Lee (2005), is a film about two cowboys where one job contract changes the course of their lives. It seem like a very unlikely story that two men who are working together out in the country fall in love with one another. However, it’s not that uncommon for a person toContinue reading “Brokeback Mountain (2005): Brief Review”

One Day (2011): Brief Review

One Day directed by Lone Scherfig (2011), is a film about how two strangers become friends and then eventually more. This film is one of the more well done friends to lovers stories. A more accurate simplistic timeline would be: strangers ➞ failed lovers ➞ friends ➞ acquaintances ➞ friends ➞ lovers ➞ married couple. TheContinue reading “One Day (2011): Brief Review”

Stage Beauty (2004): Brief Review

Stage Beauty directed by Richard Eyre (2004), is a film about the height and then transition of male portrayal of females to females themselves, all in dramatic fashion. I cannot tell what tone they were going for in this film entirely. Most of it seems very serious but then there are odd comments and comedic situationsContinue reading “Stage Beauty (2004): Brief Review”

Downfalls High (2021): Brief Review

Downfalls High directed by Machine Gun Kelly and Mod Sun (2021), is a music based film about the story of a boy through his romance with a girl from his school. It felt rushed in spots but was fairly enjoyable. All of the music was ok. Nothing that I would go back to but not outright horrible.Continue reading “Downfalls High (2021): Brief Review”

Plus One (2019): Brief Review

Plus One directed by Jeff Chan and Andrew Rhymer (2019), is a film about the classic romance trope of friends to lovers set against the wedding season of their friends. I do have to say this one sets itself apart from the normal romantic comedy. It’s not a neat tidy chuckle fest of a romantic comedy. It’sContinue reading “Plus One (2019): Brief Review”

Juno (2007): Brief Review

Juno directed by Jason Reitman (2007), is a film about mid-teen kids dealing with adult decisions and consequences after their experimental exploration of sex while keeping a sense of humor. This story is hilarious but truly grounded in a sense. There is love between all of the characters on a certain level even if it just reflectsContinue reading “Juno (2007): Brief Review”

Blue Lagoon (The Awakening): Brief Review

Blue Lagoon: The Awakening, directed by Mikael Salomon & Jake Newsome (2012), is an unnecessary modern remake of a mediocre film. It’s all a setup to explore a romance between an edgy teen boy and a studious popular girl who are both lost in different ways. There was no need to have it under the Blue LagoonContinue reading “Blue Lagoon (The Awakening): Brief Review”
