My Rating – 9.5/10 It may not be the best from Wes Anderson, but it showcases all the best aspects of his filmmaking. His overly eloquent speeches and comedic timing are fully present in this film. However, the story is certainly quirkier than some of his other stuff.   To some that could be a […]

My Rating – 9/10 This is just an absolute adrenaline rush of pop culture. For the readers out there the movie doesn’t follow the book to the letter, but director Steven Spielberg is able to capture the spirit of Ernest Cline’s novel pretty well. The plot may feel a bit rushed and there might be […]

I’m sure as we started college we were all overwhelmed and frustrated with finding somewhere to fit. I know I had no clue where I fit into Portland State, but I luckily stumbled across PSU.tv. I could just recommend joining because of the gear, because it is why I first joined like most people. Having […]

My Rating – 6/10 “Unfortunately dull and disappointing” is probably the best way to describe Cory Finely’s drama-thriller, especially after all the raving reviews it has been obtaining. Sure the film is different and that might be refreshing to those tired of blockbusters, but the poor pacing kept the movie’s concept from being great. At […]

Well unfortunately due to the surprisingly good nature of the first “Pacific Rim” there are pretty high expectations for the sequel. Steven S. DeKnight’s directorial debut was a decent one, but it holds no water to […]

My Rating – 9.5/10 Annihilation: This movie is scary, anxiety-inducing, and borderline disturbing. However, it’s also one of the best science fiction experiences one can have in a theater. Director Alex Garland has followed up his directorial debut of “Ex Machina” beautifully. It’s safe to say as a writer he is a powerhouse and as […]

My Rating – 6.5/10 The Cloverfield Paradox: There is a lot of negativity surrounding this film currently. It isn’t great by any means, but it doesn’t deserve the amount of hate it is getting. Director Julius Onah’s chapter in the Clover-verse is great in concept. Unfortunately, the script is what takes this film down a couple […]

(9.5/10) – My Rating Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri: Director and writer Martin McDonagh deserves a lot of praise for this dramatic dark comedy he created. The story follows a rather distraught mother played by Frances McDormand dealing with the tragic death of her daughter. In doing so she ends up going after the police to […]

(5/10) – My Rating Mother!: This is a film that starts off strong and ends on an off note. For about the first half of the film, writer and director Darren Aronofsky gives the audience interesting takes on Biblical stories, family dynamics, and fame. The horror-thriller elements are also very strong in this portion of the […]
