“The Pale Blue Eye” (Netflix) Movie Review by Rafy Mediavilla (@Rmediavilla). #ThePaleBlueEye

"The Pale Blue Eye" (Netflix) Movie Review by Rafy Mediavilla (@Rmediavilla). #ThePaleBlueEye West Point, 1830. In the early hours of a gray winter morning, a cadet is found dead. But after the body arrives at the morgue, tragedy becomes savagery when it's discovered that the young man's heart has been skillfully removed. Fearing irreparable damage to the fledgling military academy, its leaders turn to a local detective, Augustus Landor (Christian Bale), to solve the murder. Stymied by the cadets' code of silence, Landor enlists the help of one of their own to pursue the case, an eccentric cadet with a disdain for the rigors of the military and a penchant for poetry -- a young man named Edgar Allan Poe (Harry Melling). I have to admit that coming into hitting play on the Screene...

Guillermo del Toro’s “Pinocchio” Movie Review by Rafy Mediavilla (@Rmediavilla) #PinocchioNetflix

Guillermo del Toro's "Pinocchio" Movie Review by Rafy Mediavilla (@Rmediavilla) #PinocchioNetflix Academy Award®-winning director Guillermo del Toro and award-winning, stop-motion legend Mark Gustafson reimagine the classic Carlo Collodi tale of the fabled wooden boy with a whimsical tour de force that finds Pinocchio on an enchanted adventure that transcends worlds and reveals the life-giving power of love. I have to admit that I wasn't completely prepared or had any clue of what to expect from Guillermo del Toro’s Pinocchio. I was worried because Pinocchio is an old-time classic and knowing Guillermo del Toro’s filmography I wasn't completely sure how he would go about telling this story. yet once I finish watching the movie I was completely sold on the idea that this is one o...

“White Noise” Movie Review by Rafy Mediavilla (@Rmediavilla) #WhiteNoise

"White Noise" Movie Review by Rafy Mediavilla (@Rmediavilla) #WhiteNoise At once hilarious and horrifying, lyrical and absurd, ordinary and apocalyptic, White Noise dramatizes a contemporary American family's attempts to deal with the mundane conflicts of everyday life while grappling with the universal mysteries of love, death, and the possibility of happiness in an uncertain world. It is no secret that I absolutely loved Noah Baumbach and Netflix's “Marriage Story”. In fact, I loved it so much that I went ahead and even bought the movie as my first-ever Criterion Collection purchase. White Noise can be best described as another type of marriage story but in a different period with a dark comedy tone and an existential crisis at the center of it all. Even though I absolutely...
