Things I Like: Hell or High Water (2016 Film)

2016’s Hell or High Water kinda slipped passed my radar. I don’t even remember it coming out though it had plenty of Oscar nominations when the Academy Awards happened. Though its box office run was rather mild, some movies are born just to win Oscars it seems sometimes.

Things I Hate: Obadiah Stane (MCU)

Obadiah Stane was the secret villain in the original Iron Man movie back in 2008. While he was played by one of my favorite actors, Jeff Bridges, I never liked the character much.

He was nominated for an Oscar for his role here, but lost to Colin Firth for his role inContinue reading “Things I Like: True Grit (2010 Film)”

Things I Like: The Contender (2000 Film)

While trying to search for older critically acclaimed movies, I was pointed to The Contender which is a political thriller of sorts. Even though American politics are at an all-time high of being insanely absurd, it was a little strange to go back just to a time where national issues were much milder due toContinue reading “Things I Like: The Contender (2000 Film)”
