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.


  1. Best of luck with your program. Hope we still get you on the Lambcast occasionally.

    1. Thanks, Richard. You'll definitely be able to get me on there.
