Chef (2014) Film Review | 100 Day Film Challenge – Day 99

Chef was a passion project for Jon Favreau, and it shows in how lovingly this film was shot. Favreau directs and stars as Carl Casper, a well known chef who ends up pissing off one of the most acclaimed food critics in the country. Needless to say, he is soon unemployed. He also has a… Continue reading Chef (2014) Film Review | 100 Day Film Challenge – Day 99

Blue Ruin (2013) Film Review | 100 Day Film Challenge- Day 98

I absolutely adored Green Room, director Jeremy Saulnier's latest film, so I was super psyched to watch Blue Ruin. Unfortunately, it didn't satisfy me as mush as I had hoped it would. Blue Ruin is about a beach bum, who returns to his childhood abode to commit vengeance. Sadly lacking skills in the assassin category, he… Continue reading Blue Ruin (2013) Film Review | 100 Day Film Challenge- Day 98

Jeruzalem (2015) Film Review | 100 Day Film Challenge – Day 95

I went into this film wary. I had heard nothing but negative reviews, but I was intrigued by the plot. I'm so glad I gave this film a chance. Is it perfect? No, but it's fun and entertaining. Jeruzalem follows Sarah (Danielle Jadelyn) and Rachel (Yael Grobglas), two American women who travel to Jerusalem for… Continue reading Jeruzalem (2015) Film Review | 100 Day Film Challenge – Day 95

The Neon Demon (2016) Film Review | 100 Day Film Challenge – Day 94

I was leery of this film at first, to be honest. I didn't particularly enjoy Nicolas Winding Refn's Bronson, which I was advised was the best film of Refn's to start with. Luckily, I adored The Neon Demon. It reminded me of Black Swan mixed with Starry Eyes. The film follows a naive, hopeful young woman named… Continue reading The Neon Demon (2016) Film Review | 100 Day Film Challenge – Day 94

The Jungle Book (2016) Film Review | 100 Day Film Challenge – Day 92

WOW. I was skeptical about the concept of a live-action The Jungle Book, but Jon Favreau created a faithful masterpiece of an adaptation. If you don't know what The Jungle Book is about, the story follows the man cub Mowgli (played to perfection by Neel Sethi). After Shere Khan (voiced by Idris Elba) discovers a… Continue reading The Jungle Book (2016) Film Review | 100 Day Film Challenge – Day 92

Baskin (2015) Film Review | 100 Day Film Challenge – Day 91

 Baskin is based off of the short film of the same name, and is directed by the same director, Can Evrenol. I can't really say what this film is about without ruining it, but basically what occurs is a police squadron receives a call for backup at an apartment complex. What they find isn't what… Continue reading Baskin (2015) Film Review | 100 Day Film Challenge – Day 91
