Eternal Sunshine and McConaughey and Nightcrawler

So I finally saw Interstellar today and I have a lot of positive things to say about it. But I decided not to review it today and wait for tomorrow because I don’t want to clout my judgement because of the film’s great emotional tug to the heart. All I want to say is that it’s a…

Upcoming on the blog. Chinomatography’s tentative calendar.

Greetings! Jake Gyllenhaal and Robert Downey Jr., say hello. That’s a still from 2007’s Zodiac, as a little tease for my RETROSPECTIVE for that particular year, which I’ll be finished with tomorrow. Right after this post, I’ll be seeing my last two films to complete that particular year and those two are The Diving Bell and the…

I can’t stop thinking about…

1971’s The Last Picture Show. So tomorrow, I’m doing a 1971 showdown between the black-and-white Peter Bogdanovich coming-of-age tale and Stanley Kubrick’s masterpiece A Clockwork Orange. Why? Because they’re both from the same year, and right now I really can’t decide which one is better. And that’s so unlike me! Stay tuned! Back to real blogging now. I’m over…

Back to Regular Blogging TONIGHT!

I’ve been away! I don’t want to get into it except to say that this was my most stressful term in school! But expect reviews tonight for 2014 films like “That Awkward Moment,” “Divergent” and “Veronica Mars”. Seeing “Captain America: Winter Soldier” on Monday so expect that too in the next few days! Come drop…

The 5 Different Types of Drunk Girls – In Movies.

THE ONE WHO CAN’T CONTROL HERSELF – she doesn’t know what she’s saying, and she’s falling all over the place. Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” (1961).  THE EMOTIONAL DRUNK – she’s probably not that mad, but something is definitely bothering her. A drink or two (or three, or four, or five) brings it out of her. She’ll…

Yes, she was in “Gravity”.

Sandy at last year’s Academy Awards. But this year, she won’t be opening envelops. She may actually hear her name. Let’s see if it’s still Sandra vs. Cate by December! Can Bullock blow Blanchett away with the wind with her stellar reviews and critics awards (coming soon). What do you think Cate? “I, too, can command the…

Sneak peak of my new screenplay!

It’s messy and not really understandable but if you know what the full story is about, you’d understand why. In a nutshell, it’s the story of a guy named Jet who thinks he’s suffering from sleep paralysis, so he finds ways to stay awake at night. From there he starts hallucinating surrealist nightmares and images….

Please resurrect, Joan Cusak.

Currently re-watching “Addams Family Values” (1993) as I type. This is really one of the greatest comedies of the 1990s. Though the movie features such a spectacular cast (like Anjelica Houston, Christopher Lloyd, Raul Julia, Christina Ricci etc.), the true star of the film is comedian Joan Cusak. I miss her late 80s-90s run, because…

This lack of blogging is killing me.

But I promise, after HELL WEEK (which is next week) I’ll be back to being a constant trooper. There’s just been so much going on so I haven’t been able to attend to CHINOMATOGRAPHY very much. My schedule has been so packed because of the following: 1. MY BIRTHDAY PARTY, which is my 21st birthday,…

My Current To-Watch List!

Since “CINEMALAYA” is now official over, I wanted to share my current to-watch list which you’ll pretty much be reading about (or a sixth degree of separation or something that’s kinda related to these films—somewhat) for the next two weeks. Today, I saw the first movie on the list which is 1978’s “Coming Home”, which…
