Establishing Characters in Collateral

Whereas most films and television series rely on clunky expositional dialogue to explain whom their characters are and their respective motivations, Collateral establishes all of this visually without ever breaking the flow of the film or feeling unnatural.


Buried At Sea

Dead Men Tells No Tales is ineffective in every aspect that comprises an action adventure film as it relies on nonexistent charisma and all-too-sparse nostalgia to carry its audience from each of its numerous mindless action sequences.

For a Better World

Wonder Woman presents Diana as someone whose beliefs have not been polluted by the world around her, and because of this she fearlessly embodies feminism, activism, and a belief that the world has the potential to be a better place.
