The First Omen

By - Nick Adrian For fans of religious horror, nun-spolitation, and The Omen franchise Over the last few decades, successful horror films are rarely left alone. They are typically subjected to sequels, spin-offs, remakes, and occasionally, prequels. While this has become a growing trend with most successful films, the horror genre tends to bring unlimited opportunities for its producers - despite mixed to dismal results. However, this entry is different. […]

Breaking out in television shows such as Euphoria and The White Lotus, Sweeney is establishing herself as not only a full-fledged movie star (roles in recent films such as Anyone But You and Madame Web) […]

By - Nick Adrian For fans of legendary sci-fi, big IMAX screens, and Denis Villeneuve Ever since its publication in 1965, filmmakers have dreamed, tried, and (for the most part) failed to adapt Frank Herbert’s massively influential science fiction novel, Dune. Alejandro Jodorowsky’s attempt to tackle the project in the 1970s never came to fruition, David Lynch’s 1984 version was a disappointment for many, and Sci-Fi Channel’s 2000 miniseries still […]

60 Years of The Umbrellas of Cherbourg

By - Nick Adrian For fans of musicals, bright cinematography, and the French New Wave By the early 1960s, the movie musical had started to run its course. Gone were the days of MGM’s elaborate Busby Berkley productions and Warner Brother’s Technicolor fantasies - what was once arguably one of cinema’s most popular genres was slowly dwindling. However, in France a group of young filmmakers were making “waves” over their […]

The Sound of Eraserhead

By - Nick Adrian For fans of David Lynch, surrealism, midnight movies There has never been a film like David Lynch’s Eraserhead and there has never been a film that sounds like David Lynch’s Eraserhead. In a film where everything from its look, characters, story, and cinematography are incredibly unique and at-times groundbreaking, what has been applauded more than anything has seemed to be its sound design. Sound has always […]

Mulholland Drive and the Benefits of Artistic Failure

By - Nick Adrian For fans of David Lynch, surrealism, and art itself Some artistic projects are destined to fail. Distinctive auteur David Lynch (at the time known for cult hits such as Eraserhead, The Elephant Man, and Blue Velvet) had dipped his toe into network television in the early 1990s, with the cultural phenomenon Twin Peaks. It would go on to start a trend where a film director no […]

Film Review


By - Nick Adrian For fans of WWII history, Oliver Stone’s political conspiracy films, and of course - Christopher Nolan It seems like movie theaters are being taken my storm by this summer’s biggest craze: “Barbenheimer,” the double feature of Greta Gerwig’s Barbie and Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer. The latter, the much-anticipated biopic from one of the most successful auteurs working today, is the focus here and it’s not only the […]

Asteroid City

By - Nick Adrian For fans of Wes Anderson, 50s sci-fi, and Wile E. Coyote/Road Runner cartoons There are only a few household name directors whose new film releases still feel like a major event, and Wes Anderson is a prime example. His unique and singular style (that’s been the source of inspiration for many a TikToker as of late - but don’t tell him that) only improves with each […]
