The Dark Tower: Film Review

There were a lot of cool things about this movie. The fight scenes were something to behold. The script (by superteam Akiva Goldsman, Jeff Pinkner, Anders Thomas Jensen and Nikolaj Arcel) was equally good. The gunbattles were neat but I’m an even bigger fan of the reloads.

Baconaua: Movie Review

No matter the case, I think Baconaua would have been a better film if it did not focus too much on making its message a big mystery to solve for its audience. While it carried out the artistic side of the film, I believe that the really good movies are those that manage to find the balance between art and entertainment and one that reaches all types of audience. Call me uncultured but this is me #justsaying.… Read More Baconaua: Movie Review
