"Let us be clear. The Academy has a diversity problem. The film industry has a diversity crisis."

Review: Deadpool

Deadpool is a fun movie, and the majority of fans will be pleased with how he’s been adapted to the big screen. I do think that the your reaction to the film will be very much dependent on whether you’re willing to go along with its very silly tone, like I was.

Review: The Revenant

It’s a relentless, exhausting story of revenge and survival, elevated beyond mere tropes by the expert cinematography and editing of Emmanuel Lubezki and Stephen Mirrione (both of whom worked on Birdman) respectively. No one is delivering cinematic visions like these three in tandem right now.
