How to Make a Classic: The Importance of the Basics in Get Out

By Wells Thompson | February 16, 2018

Editor’s Note- The Academy Awards is March 4, 2018. We have asked our resident Movie Reviewer, Wells Thompson, to review several of the movies up for Academy Awards leading up to the Oscars. Horror as a genre is probably the most marginalized storytelling method in any media. In literature, few horror writers are ever recognized in the literary canon outside of Edgar Allan Poe, and in film, horror is often dismissed as a medium for cheap jump scares and bloody gross-outs.

By Wells Thompson | February 9, 2018

Editor’s Note- The Academy Awards is March 4, 2018. We have asked our resident Movie Reviewer, Wells Thompson, to review several of the movies up for Academy Awards leading up to the Oscars.  The first review is for Three Billboards outside Ebbing, Missouri. It’s always a surprise when your expectations are subverted, especially when you’re expecting the worst and wind up with the best case scenario. Every Oscar season, I expect to see a list of overblown dramas being recognized with a few great films sprinkled in that have no real chance of winning. Nearly every year, the winners are almost …
