White Noise

Synopsis

Won’t anyone pay attention to what’s really happening?

Director

Noah Baumbach

Cast

Adam Driver
Don Cheadle
Greta Gerwig
Madison Gaughan
Daniel Williams
Matthew Williams

It’s award consideration season, so here’s my consideration. Synopsis Won’t anyone pay attention to what’s really happening? Writing I don’t know what’s really happening. The film has a very distinct three act structure that would have been better suited as vignettes. The first act introduces Professor Jack Gladney (Adam Driver), an expert in Adolf Hitler […]

The Big Knife

A hundred years ago the gentleman detective in the form of Philo Vance was extremely popular. The crimes he solved tended to be artificial and complex. The hard-boiled detective in the form of Sam Spade and the Continental Op were a reaction to this artificiality. Raymond Chandler wrote The Simple Art of Murder in reaction). […]

Nugget The Cat: Holiday Special

Nugget the cat returns for a holiday special filled with Christmas cheer! This time around, we decided to mix it up a bit. The special actually begins with a short intro before the title which features the preparations for a Spaghetti dinner. (if Scorsese can do it, why can’t we?) After the titles the holiday […]

Film Title

It's No Laughing Matter

Synopsis

A comic failure stalks and kidnaps his idol

Director

Martin Scorsese

Cast

Robert De Niro
Jerry Lewis
Sandra Bernhard
Diahnne Abbott
Shelley Hack

Scorsese’s cinematic partnership with De Niro is among the most legendary of the twentieth century, hemorrhaging up blood-soaked classics like Taxi Driver and Goodfellas. It wasn’t all plain slaying, though. Just take a look at the headache-inducing musical New York, New York in which De Niro argues nonstop with Liza Minnelli. Then there’s the redundant, […]

Batman Returns Again

Some people think Die Hard is a Christmas movie and I’m not here to contradict them though it’s in my every bone to do so, it’s Christmas, we should get along, somebody somewhere invented the idea that it was rude to ask these people exactly what the analytical criteria for a Christmas movie might be, […]

Spirited

Synopsis

A Christmas Carol, shaken not stirred, with a twist

Director

Sean Anders

Cast

Will Ferrell
Ryan Reynolds
Octavia Spencer
Patrick Page
Tracy Morgan

It’s award consideration season, so here’s my consideration. Synopsis A Christmas Carol, shaken not stirred, with a twist. Writing Like Pinocchio, A Christmas Carol has been done so many times that finding a fresh take on the story is a nearly impossible task. Writers Sean Anders (also directing) and John Morris manage to wring a […]

The Whale

The Whale

Synopsis

We are all chasing something

Director

Darren Aronofsky

Cast

Brendan Fraser
Sadie Sink
Ty Simpkins
Hong Chau
Samantha Morton

Going into Darren Aronofsky’s latest film The Whale, I prepared myself for at least one disturbing scene that would sear itself into my brain next to scenes from Requiem for a Dream and Black Swan. Like Stanley Kubrick, Aronofsky tends to make weird and dark movies, some of which feature scenes you cannot unsee. To […]
