Like my ancestors used to say, “with Adam Sandler, you can’t expect a good movie, but you can expect a good time”. Ok, they didn’t say that exactly, but it perfectly describes “Murder Mystery”, a film that could maybe make your otherwise uneventful Tuesday night somewhat entertaining.
Film Review Always Be My Maybe · Nahnatchka Khan · Ali Wong · Randall Park · Keanu Reeves · Daniel Dae Kim · James Saito · PG-13 · 2019 · PROJECT-FILM-52
Last month, Netflix released its much anticipated film, “Always Be My Maybe”, and adds yet another notch to its growing list of original romantic comedies. While I always appreciate when a modern film is led by an Asian cast, I can’t help but wish the film was more creative and cohesive.

Film Review Guava Island · Hiro Murai · Donald Glover · Rihanna · Leticia Wright · Nonso Anozie · TV-MA · 2019 · PROJECT-FILM-52
Donald Glover released his latest artistic endeavor last month on Amazon Prime, and this time it’s a short film by the name of “Guava Island”. Most art that Donald churns out is of high quality, and for the most part, “Guava Island” is no exception.

Here comes another “Poops & Praises”, a style of review where I just list what I liked (praises) and what I didn’t like (poops). Warning, there are mild spoilers ahead.
Film Review Velvet Buzzsaw · Dan Gilroy · Jake Gyllenhaal · Rene Russo · Zawe Ashton · John Malkovich · R · 2019 · PROJECT-FILM-52
I normally steer far away from horror films, but when I heard that the director of “Nightcrawler” had teamed up with Jake Gyllenhaal again to release a satire horror film on Netflix, my curiosity got the best of me. Despite its categorization of horror, I found the film to be surprisingly funny and was laughing more often than I was scared, whether that was the film’s intention or not.
