SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING

Spider-Man, Spider-Man, he gets rebooted like no one else can. Remember how much of a big deal the first Spider-Man film was back in 2002? After the superhero film genre pretty much petered out after failures like Batman & Robin, Sam Raimi came around and showed us that superheroes could be taken seriously […]

BABY DRIVER

Car chases are awesome. There’s simply no doubt about that. I don’t know what it is, but watching somebody so skilled behind the wheel perform incredible (and often dangerous) stunts is so exhilarating. They’re a staple of action cinema. Edgar Wright is also awesome. He’s a smart […]

I have a confession to make: I can’t stand the character Captain Jack Sparrow. He’s obnoxious, irritating, bumbling, obscene, and all around just frustrating to watch. Yes, I realize I just described his entire character and that’s the point of him, but I could just never bring myself […]

BAYWATCH

Remember the 21 Jump Street film and how it had absolutely no right to be as good as it was? I do, because it’s probably my favorite comedy of the decade. What started off as an embarrassing cash grab attempt turned out to be a clever, biting satire on […]

THE LOST CITY OF Z

Telling a story about a real life person can have some challenges, especially if the story you want to tell encapsulates almost two decades of the person’s life. The fact of the matter is, films have certain structures that not just offer for engaging narratives, but allows […]

ALIEN: COVENANT

Alien is one of the greatest horror films of all time. Aliens is one of the greatest action films of all time. Decades ago, Ridley Scott and James Cameron both struck gold with their respective creepy alien features. Gold that 20th Century Fox has been trying to find more […]
