Thelma and Louise: Empowering Women Through Cinema

In Ridley Scott’s film, Thelma and Louise are illustrated as victims throughout most of the film, this is seen through the lighting, the settings and costumes. In the beginning of the film, as the main protagonists are being introduced, the flat lighting reflects the two characters’ emotional state. The lighting isn’t very toned and has a bluish hue, further emphasizing how the characters feel trapped and how bleak their environments are. In fact, the setting of Thelma’s home is depicted as a very typical middle class house, in addition to…

Frankenweenie (1984) Review

In contrast to the colorful playfulness of your typical Disney picture, lies the work of Tim Burton, who fuses that whimsy with his blend of dark themes, wistful characters, and surrealism. This is certainly seen in his debut film, Frankenweenie.   As the title suggests, this film is a parody of the original Frankenstein, only this time, Victor Frankenstein is a young boy who, grief-stricken, brings his dog, Sparky, back from the dead only for chaos to ensue in the neighborhood.   This film is bursting with references to films…

Review of “Mother!” Entertainment 

Review of “Mother!”

A new Hellboy Film in the works, but it’s not Hellboy 3

Before we dive into it all, I want to say that Guillermo Del Toro’s Hellboy would-be trilogy was one of the very first superhero films I saw. I was 10, and going to friend’s house to watch it in his basement without my parents knowing (as it was PG-13) was one of the most thrilling experiences in my life (as a 10 year old anyway)…   I absolutely loved the character and the whole aesthetic linked to the world of the B.P.R.D. and Hellboy. Both Del Toro and Perlman (who…

A Review of Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver

Edgar Wright’s new action-comedy Baby Driver might not be a perfect film, but it certainly comes close to being one. The film follows the story of Baby (Ansel Elgort), a reluctant and extremely talented getaway driver who listens to music at all times due in part to ear damage imparted during a car accident when he was a child. He embarks on quest to leave the crime business and along the way, develops a romance with a young, sweet waitress named Deborah (Lily James), whom he tries to protect from…
