    Film Review: Palm Springs, a HULU Original Film

    Hulu’s latest original film, Palm Springs, has been a blockbuster hit since its release in July 2020. Starring SNL and Brooklyn 99 actor Andy Samberg and How I Met Your Mother alum Cristin Milioti, the rom-com takes place on the morning of a wedding day. Again, and again, and again.  The film taps into Black Mirror’s area of expertise, a show well known for its eerie dystopian depiction of mankind, as it follows its two protagonists through the same day on a continuous loop.  Nyles (played by Samberg) has been stuck reliving the day of Tala (Camila Mendes) and Abe’s (played by Tyler Hoechlin) wedding day since stepping foot into…

    Lighting Strikes again for DC & Warner Bros with SHAZAM!

    It is not a shock that some may think that, on the whole, Marvel Comics tends to surpass DC Comics in terms of quality, especially when it comes to their cinematic endeavors in recent years. The DC Cinematic Universe (DCCU) has only had one notably good film with Wonder Woman. I cannot speak to the quality of Aquaman as I have not seen it, but the mass majority agree that, while not horrendous, it was definitely a slight step down in quality. With all of that said, I am happy to report that DC’s newest release, Shazam, is not only good as it surpassed Marvel’s latest release, Captain Marvel, but…

    Film Review: “The Nun” Fails to Deliver the Scares this Summer

    Another summer has come to an end, a new school year is underway and I have another opportunity to tell you, the fine readers of The Knight News, which movies and shows are worth your time and which movies aren’t worth the $11 ticket. In-order to understand my frustration with 2018’s “The Nun” you have to understand how I evaluate a film, often times I weigh the good qualities of a film against it’s bad qualities and determine which outweighs the other. When it comes to this film’s predecessors, “The Conjuring” both one and two, “The Nun” doesn’t come close to matching the suspense, style, and cinematic craftsmanship that made…

    Disney Strikes Magic with First African-American Female Directed-film: A Wrinkle in Time

    “A Wrinkle in Time,” is the first film directed by a black woman with a 100 million dollar budget. That black woman’s name is Ava Duvernay, and she created an excellent film about the power of believing in one’s self. “A Wrinkle in Time,” based off the novel of the same name, is a film that captures the beauty of existing; that everyone is capable of believing and making the world a better place, but it is ultimately up to you to make that choice. Meg, played by Storm Reid, is a precocious middle schooler struggling to find her place in the world after her father’s disappearance, and her struggle…

    The Cloverfield Paradox

    So I was all ready to make a review of “End of the F**cking World” when all of a sudden on Super Bowl Sunday, Netflix went ahead and dropped the third installment in the Cloverfield film series, “The Cloverfield Paradox.” The Cloverfield franchise has always had unusual methods of advertising their films: not putting a title on their first trailers, putting out trailers only two to three months before release, and now releasing a film immediately after it was announced. From day one the franchise has always exuded this aura of mystery, especially with easter eggs and hidden secrets planted for film detectives to find. Fake websites, secret codes, and…
