Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
17 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

One of the best westerns in the golden era of cinema, even though it centers around two notorious outlaws. "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" may have over exaggerated some of the facts, but- Damn it! Its screenplay nails every beat and keeps us invested in the story. Not only that, but the ending is a worth a viewing since it's well made and action packed. Robert Redford and Paul Newman were perfectly cast in bringing these characters to life. Their presence just shoots off chemistry that will actors be inspired. Definitely a good addition for the Western genre.

All the President's Men
17 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

The most exciting, political thriller I have ever seen. Every minute, every dialogue always keep you at the edge of your seat. Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman are the perfect duo to tackle and investigate the Watergate scandal. They share perfect chemistry with each other. "All the President's Men" is a film that everyone should witness.

The Fog

Atmospheric and, sometimes, thrilling; "The Fog" might not be John Carpenter's finest work, but it continues to solidify his importance in the filmmaking world due to talent behind the music and out-this-world storytelling.

The Howling
The Howling (1981)
29 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Like any 1980s horror film, "The Howling" offers great practical effects, but they are wasted on a story that is so cheesy and cliché that you often laugh at the poor decisions that these filmmakers made during the filmmaking process. Not only that, but some of the actors' performances are so unrealistic and over-the-top that you can't take the storyline seriously. Yes, I get it. It's a movie about werewolves. So? I should feel scared and thrilled when watching these characters being mauled by monsters, but what's the point of being scared when all the actors act like they were in a middle school play! Maybe it's just me. Maybe I just don't like the mentality behind the making of these "slasher/horror" films. Thank God we moved pass this stage in the filmmaking world.

Fences
Fences (2016)
29 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Denzel Washington is good (and threatening) as ever, but he is wasted in this long, dialogue driven film with no protagonist on sight. "Fences" is a good example of a film that reminds us not all theatre plays can be made into the big screen. There is so much dialogue happening in every scene that you just can't keep up. You literally have to put on the subtitles so that you can understand what the characters are saying. They either talk too fast or talk too much. It's overwhelming. Plus, Denzel's character is too much of an asshole for us to even cheer for the guy, let alone keep us invested in the film. If you're studying acting, then this film is good for you. But, if you enjoy the art of cinema, then look elsewhere. This film will only test your patience.
