    Spiral: From the Book of Saw

    ★★★

    Chris Rock plays an officer named Zeke who turns in a dirty cop, which ostracizes him from the rest of the force. I liked how the film tried to show a new perspective of working in a police department, but at the same time there were moments where the message felt too heavy handed and fake. For example during a monologue where Chris Rock is ranting about his divorce, and about the too-high expectations women place on men (which include…

    The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

    ★★½

    I really wasn’t feeling this one. Probably my least favourite of the series. I think they should’ve leaned more into the murderer side of the story, the charges against him and his defence. I definitely wouldn’t want this to feel like a police procedural but at the same time that is what made this instalment unique.

    I’ve noticed that many coming of age films for girls have similar thematic elements about the…

    The Blob

    ★★★★★

    I love The Blob more every time I watch it. It’s funny, the gore is amazing, a dude gets killed while trying to grope a woman. I can’t ask for more than that.

    The characters in this movie are so well done. They’re realistic and flawed, and there’s incredible personal growth that happens despite the film being 90 minutes long. The most memorable moment being when Meg says the only thing Brian is good at is saving himself, and he…
