    In the realm of emotion, this is Martin Scorsese's most violent film.

    ★★★★★

    A fully comprehensive 15 hour docu-series showing exactly what the title promises: The Story of Film.

    It's one of my absolute favorite documentaries and I wholeheartedly recommend it to any lover of the craft.

    ★★

    Beneath the thin dialogue, formulaic plot, and tacky CGI, lies what could have been an interesting action-thriller.

    Donald Glover: Weirdo

    ★★

    I feel like I'm the only person who doesn't like this stand-up.

    This is coming from a huge Dong Lover fan; he's a charismatic actor to watch, he's always in my music playlist rotation, & his writing on Atlanta is some of the best on television.

    Yet somehow, I just see him struggling up there. It reads to me like he's doing an impersonation of a stand-up comedian. His writing is full of wit, he knows how to craft an interesting story, and more importantly, he knows how to tell it. However, it just doesn't feel natural.
