    ★★★★★

    Rate: MASTERPIECE
    This is by far the best biopic I have ever seen. I have seen this movie probably 15 times or more and it never gets old. The story focuses on the rap group NWA and their come up in the music industry, but it also focuses on the discrimination and disrespect African Americans experienced during the era. Dr.Dre, Ice Cube and Tomica Wright were all writers on this film in order to make it as accurate as possible,…

    “Maybe I just missed my friend.”
    The Shawshank Redemption is a film I have been wanting to watch for over a year now, I finally got around to it and man am I impressed. This movie had little to no action at all but the story and characters are written in a way that you can not stop watching the screen. Tim Robbins portrayed Andy DuFresne seamlessly, Andy is a reserved, wrongfully accused inmate who is trying to…

    Monsters, Inc.

    ★★★★½

    This movie was a huge part of my childhood. I watched this movie so many times. So tonight I was feeling nostalgic and decided to watch it again, and its as good as ever. The animation is great and has that classic Pixar look to it. Voice acting is incredible and story is even better. Never a dull moment in this whether it be drama, comedy or action, you’re always hooked on whats on the screen. The music is great…

  • The Nightmare Before Christmas

    The Nightmare Before Christmas

    ★★★★½

    This is the perfect Christmas movie and the perfect Halloween movie, the perfect mix of both. The story is extremely unique, a Halloween town, who tries to become a Christmas town, sounds weird right? But it works so damn well. The music in this is nothing short of amazing, every song has got me singing along with “Whats This” being my favorite track on the soundtrack. This movie is always on my Halloween and Christmas movie watchlist and a year…

  • The Prestige

    The Prestige

    ★★★★★

    Rate: 100%
    The Prestige is a mind fuck and a half. The story starts off simple, two competing magicians, but as the movie progresses, it gets more and more complex. While the movie focuses on the idea of slight of hand, Nolan is constantly hiding little details throughout the film using cinematic slight of hand. I really enjoyed watching this movie as it kept me thinking, although it hurt my head. The acting was amazing, Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman…

  • Pulp Fiction

    Pulp Fiction

    ★★★★★

    A soft, moist, shapeless mass of matter. This movie is fucking fantastic from dialogue to acting to story, all of it. The story is told in a nonlinear fashion, and for a first time viewer its a little confusing but still highly enjoyable. I’ve seen this movie 3 times now and I still couldn’t explain the story to someone without spoiling the entire thing, its just too complex. The story is able to come full circle and make sense in…
