An Announcement

Hello everyone. You may have noticed that I haven't posted any reviews for over a month now. That is because: 1. Nothing really worth seeing comes out in August; & 2. I haven't had the desire or energy to do film criticism anymore. Which is why I'm announcing that I am indefinitely going to stop writing film reviews on this blog. I am going to focus more on doing film things outside of criticism, such as screenwriting & short filmmaking. I am attending Oakland University for cinema studies (filmmaking), & I know that will further help me reach my goal of becoming a writer & director. I may come back to film criticism, but I don't foresee that happening. So, this is Cameron Kanachki, The Michigan Movie Guy, signing off & telling you to watch Booksmart & avoid Bohemian Rhapsody.

P.S. I will give a mini-review of the films I've seen recently as my last review.

Good Boys - ★★★½ - This coming of age comedy is a bit too underdeveloped & reliant on profanity by kids, but it's mostly hilarious & honestly sweet.

Blinded by the Light - ★★★½ - While this biographical comedy-drama is too formulaic at times, it's a mostly sweet & charming look at one man's love for Bruce Springsteen.

Apocalypse Now - ★★★★★ - This is the best war film ever made. Absolutely groundbreaking.

Ready or Not - ★★★★★ - It's absolute insanity, & I loved it.

The Peanut Butter Falcon - ★★★★★ - The most heartfelt film of the year.
