“The Invisible Man” review by Nate Blake

Trigger Warning: The Invisible Man deals with domestic violence, suicide and sexual assault. This review features discussion of those issues.  The first great film of 2020 has arrived, and it couldn’t come at a better time. The first two months of this year have been disappointing, so I’m happy to say that tonight I saw … Continue reading “The Invisible Man” review by Nate Blake

Nate Blake: My Vinyl Soundtrack Collection-2020 Edition

I’ve noticed that a popular recurring segment a lot of film bloggers and critics do is to show off their Blu-ray collection in a video. I’m going to do something a little different that will also lend itself better to a written article rather than a long video. I buy so many movies on Vudu … Continue reading Nate Blake: My Vinyl Soundtrack Collection-2020 Edition

“Fantasy Island” review by Nate Blake

False advertising pretty much sums up this Blumhouse disaster. I have seen more episodes of the original television series Fantasy Island than I am proud to admit. That relic from the 1970s doesn’t meet the threshold of great entertainment either, but Blumhouse promised more in the trailer.

“Dead of Winter Film Survival Guide” by Alex and Nate Blake

To make matters worse, even if the roads aren’t covered with snow and I don’t have the sniffles, the new releases at the theater this time … Continue reading “Dead of Winter Film Survival Guide” by Alex and Nate Blake

“The Oscars Got It Right” by Nate Blake

Parasite won Best Picture! That actually happened! I had been hoping for that outcome ever since I first saw the South Korean thriller back in November. Even going into last night’s ceremony, with Parasite gaining momentum from screenwriting wins at the WGA and BAFTA awards the previous weekend, most pundits expected 1917 to take Best … Continue reading “The Oscars Got It Right” by Nate Blake

“Birds of Prey” review by Nate Blake

Birds of Prey was directed by Cathy Yan and written by Christina Hodson. Set after the events of 2016’s Suicide Squad (which I still haven’t seen, and probably won’t at this point), the film tells the story of how Harley Quinn (Margot Robbie) teams up with Black Canary (Jurnee Smollett-Bell), Helena Bertinelli/Huntress (Mary Elizabeth Winstead) … Continue reading “Birds of Prey” review by Nate Blake
