Friday the 13th part 8: 3 out of 5 stars One of my favourite films of the franchise and also possibly the cheesiest one, this film. Not much about this makes sense, it’s more of a slapstick horror than anything, how Jason dies is just confusing, the movie is called Jason Takes Manhattan, but only about 15 minutes are in NY, most of it is on a boat, yet for some reason I enjoy this movie a lot. I’d highly recommend giving it a shot, but it is terrible in the best ways.
“If you could see your whole life from start to finish, would you change things?” - Louise Banks (as played by Amy Adams in Arrival, 2016). One of my personal favourites from two Oscar seasons ago! Powerful, thought-provoking, and an incredibly intelligent analysis of linguistics, language, and human relationships / communication. Highly recommend for anyone who hasn’t already seen it!! It is heavily influenced by the Sapir-Whorf hypothesis of linguistic relativity, which outlines that the language we speak influences all aspects of our cognition and worldview, including how we think and understand the world to be. The film is actually based on a novella by Ted Chiang called “Story of Your Life”. Eric Heisserer’s adapted script does a brilliant job of dissecting language and sentence structure, all while amplifying suspense. In fact, the team went so far as to collaborate with several linguists to create a fully functioning alien language using non-linear orthography - meaning that a sentence or thought is known and experienced at once, not in a progressive order from beginning to end.
Hey guys, I just wanted to give a quick updatex I haven’t been very active lately because I’ve been working on my college applications. I’m applying to a couple schools for film so I’ve been working on a short film. Thanks for being patient and I hope I’ll get back to reviewing movies and posting a lot very soon! #film#movie#movies#cinephiles#cinephilecommunity
Friday the 13th part 6: 2 out of 5 stars. Jason Lives brings the series in a different direction, from here on out we deal with zombie Jason, jump boat loads of sharks, and really is more silly than scary. I know this is one of the most lost loved films of the franchise, but I just wasn’t a huge fan of it. Still worth the watch though.
Friday the 13th part 5: 2.5 out of 5 stars A new beginning is one of those films that you question why it’s in the franchise, if you haven’t seen it yet here is a small spoiler warning ⚠️. As suggested by the title of this film, the one before it, and the one after, Jason is dead, this is just a copycat killer which oddly enough has a very similar motive to the original film. The movie still brings some good death scenes and isn’t a bad watch overall, so it’s worth the watch.
Friday the 13th part 4: 4 out of 5 stars The Final Chapter, or at least that’s what it was intended to be. This film delivers in a way that would’ve been a great conclusion to the franchise. Still being fresh, not jumping the shark, just a fun and eerie slasher film. Definitely worth the watch up until this point in the franchise.
Today's alternative minimalist poster is dedicated to Hannibal.

Friday the 13th part 3: 3 out of 5 stars The 3rd instalment to this slasher franchise tries to make some quick cash on 3D fad. While I admit I’ve never actually seen this in 3D, you can tell what some of these scenes would’ve looked like with the glasses. All in all it still manages to bring a ton of fun and original deaths to the screen so I’d say give this a shot.
My Review of Venom. Directed by: Ruben Fleischer Starring: Tom Hardy, Michelle Williams & Riz Ahmed. . . . This is my first review so cut me some slack. Being a huge fan of Spider-Man, I was very skeptical when I originally heard of Venom being released. For multiple reasons actually. There was no involvement from Marvel Studios or inclusion of Spider-Man. I also wasn’t fond of Sony making venom out to be an anti hero. So, going into this movie, I tried to stay as open minded as possible yesterday. . . . I won’t say that I was surprised. I was just...eh? I guess... I wanted to love this movie. I really did. Honestl, the best part of Venom was the relationship between Venom and Eddie Brock. It really carries the movie after the extremely long and slow setup of introducing the symbiotes. No disrespect to Riz Ahmed but I just didn’t feel like he had what it took to be the main antagonist. I get that he was basically “the face” of the evil corporation. He just didn’t seem very menacing until he was connected to Riot. I also didn’t understand how Venom all of sudden had a change of heart from one scene to the next. I didn’t feel like there was enough development to constitute such a change in character. The fight scene with Riot & Venom was also hard to watch. The CGI seemed choppy and there were too many cut scenes. It made it hard to be able to focus on what was happening. Overall, I would see venom again and will more than likely purchase the steelbook when it’s released. . . . My grade: 7/10 . . . #venom#movie#review#marvel#spiderman#sony#eddiebrock#tomhardy#cinephile#cinephiles#cinephilecommunity#film#cinema#filmreview
