Movie Review:

Review by: Laurel Wang Directed by: Gerard Johnstone Rating: 3.5/5  Few movies can say their pursuit scenes come with choreography. But for M3GAN, it’s a claim to fame. The horror-comedy craftily bridges the gap between the genres, delivering a fresh, tongue-in-cheek take on the doll horror movie. Gemma (Allison Williams), a toy robotics engineer, settles soundly into the role of […]

Movie Review: Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

Review by: Bradyn Johnson Directed by: Ryan Coogler Rating: 4/5  It was difficult to imagine a Black Panther movie without lead actor Chadwick Boseman, but Black Panther: Wakanda Forever proved to be a massive success. After Boseman’s abrupt passing, many were unsure about the future of the beloved character. Fortunately, director Ryan Coogler was able to make the transition between […]

Movie Review: Don’t Worry Darling

Review by: Megan Lee Directed by: Olivia Wilde Rating: 4/5  Full of criticisms on the concept of perfection, Don’t Worry Darling might just be the most psychologically twisted film to hit the theaters this year. At first glance, the casting of Harry Styles as the lead makes the film seem like an amateur selection of Hollywood idols, yet the directing, […]

Movie Review: The Batman

Review by: Aditya Thiyag Directed by: Matt Reeves Rating: 4.5/5 “Something in the Way” was one of the most understated songs on Nirvana’s 1991 magnum opus Nevermind. Consisting of just a few chords, Cobain’s whispering vocals, and with many fans believing the lyrics to be about Cobain’s time homeless, it is a vulnerable record about a broken person seemingly struggling […]

MOVIE REVIEW: KIMI

Review by: Aditya Thiyag Director: Steven Sonderbergh Rating: 3.5/5 Movies, more than any other form of entertainment, have always been an escape from reality, and in our current pandemic world, that has especially become the case for millions worldwide. However, Stephen Soderbergh’s latest film, KIMI, excels due to it taking place during the COVID-19 pandemic, with a premise centered around […]

MOVIE REVIEW: West Side Story

Review by: Aditya Thiyag Director: Steven Spielberg Rating: 3.5/5 Steven Speilberg’s 2021 adaptation of the similarly named 1957 stage musical is a slow paced visual spectacle with grand musical numbers and expert cinematography that is bogged down by frustrating writing of both the characters and the plot. The movie opens with a swooping long take over a desaturated look into […]

Movie Review: No time to Die

Review by: Aditya Thiyag Director: Cary Joji Fukunaga Rating: 4.5/5 No Time To Die is a drama first and an action spectacle second. That’s what makes it a perfect conclusion to Daniel Craig’s run as James Bond. If there was one word I’d use to describe this film, it would be consequence. Every action Bond takes in this film and […]

TV Review: The Falcon and The Winter Soldier

Directed by: Kari Skogland Rating: 8/10 Review by: Scott Reckers As opposed to a surface-level Marvel series where Sam Wilson and Bucky Barnes just march around, beating up bad guys, the show faces its characters with tough decisions. Taking a refreshing look at systemic issues like racism and police brutality in America, the show sees Marvel taking a sharp left […]

Movie review: The Father

Directed by: Florian Zeller Rating: 8/10 Review by: Raghav Raj The first thing that practically leaps off the screen in the opening moments of The Father is the sheer disarray of it all. As Olivia Colman’s character walks to her apartment, striding intently, the camera seems caught off balance by her, almost struggling to stay with her as she walks […]

Opinion: Perfectly Long Movies

Raghav Raj | Staff Writer With Zack Snyder’s absolutely massive, 4-hour long director’s cut of the 2017 DC film Justice League in the spotlight, there’s a renewed interest in the “long movie,” a remarkably volatile cinematic experience that serves as a double edged sword for any viewers up to the task. If a filmmaker gets it wrong, you’re stuck sitting […]

Movie review: Godzilla vs. Kong

Review by: Scott Reckers Director: Adam Wingard Rating 7/10 Godzilla may be the “King of the Monsters,” but Kong bows to no one. The two stars of the ‘Monsterverse’ have finally clashed together, and the promise of a visual spectacle is fulfilled. The current state of visual effects is the future we dreamed of years ago, and the fight scenes […]

Movie Opinion – A missed OPPORTUNITY

Raghav Raj | Staff Writer In an awards season flipped on its head now that COVID-19 has left most movie theaters shuttered for a year, rendering the box office almost all but irrelevant, few films have received the amount of plaudits that Chloe Zhao’s Nomadland has. And, many might argue, for good reason. Zhao’s third feature film is a visually […]
