The Miracle Season Review

A Miracle Season at its core is a story that is as heartwarming as it is heart wrenching. I have some issues with the film’s style, but overall the real-life triumph of using grief to obtain redemption is a message that should hit home with many and at least with the case of audiences, actually did. If women going through the pains of sorrow, resilience, and faith to find success isn’t the ideal ‘feminist’ message for society, then it’s probably time to good look at what one’s definition of ‘feminism’ actually is.

I Can Only Imagine Review

Watching this film it’s not hard to see why audiences are praising this film the way they are and I can safely say, this is the best film I’ve seen so far this year. I Can Only Imagine mirrors the song it is based on and is a word of mouth smash hit that keeps the Christian genre rolling.

The 15:17 to Paris Review

Americana, Guns, Faith, Military, and Islāmic Terror Attacks…five things to guarantee a bad rating on Rotten Tomatoes. All jokes aside, I was skeptical when Director Clint Eastwood announced that he had cast Anthony Sadler, Alek Skarlatos, and Spencer Stone to play themselves in the film The 15:17 to Paris in where they reacted the 2015 Thalys train attack.

Fifty Shades Freed Review

Fifty Shades Freed is better than Fifty Shades Darker in the same way Stage 3 lung cancer is better than Stage 4. If there is one thing this series succeeded in, its that we finally have a love story worse than Twilight.

The Shape of Water (Guest Review ft. Amari Sali)

Last year, Amari Sali from Wherever I Look reviewed an Oscar-nominated film Fences, this time he is back to review another academy award nominated film The Shape of Water. The Shape of Water will remind you of the days when fantasy films weren’t made to set up trilogies but simply tell a stand alone, gorgeous story.

Molly’s Game Review

Four years ago, Utah’s wide receiver Kaelin Clay scored a 79-yard touchdown pass in a game against #4 Oregon…until he discovered that he dropped the ball at the 2-yard line and Oregon picked it up for a 99-yard touchdown the other way. What does this have to do with Molly’s Game? Nothing outside of the fact that is exactly how I felt watching this movie.

Columbus (2017) Review

I don’t always get to watch stylish artsy crap, but I can safely say that Columbus is one the most authentic visual love letters to a city (Columbus, Indiana) I’ve seen in some time and earns a spot as one of my top films of the years.
