MEN IN BLACK: INTERNATIONAL

I’ve always looked at Men in Black as a sort of Ghostbusters, except with aliens. It’s not really about the plot, but about the characters and how they interact with each other, as well as the crazy world around them. Since they only focused on two characters, Men in Black always fell […]

It’s always interesting when directors branch out of their comfort zone, especially when they’re sometimes so far away from it. I gotta say, going from drama to horror would be especially tough. While they can certainly have characters and story, horror films are more about the experience over emotional […]

DARK PHOENIX

There is something that feels antiquated about the X-Men franchise now. The first film came out in 2000 and kicked off the modern comic book craze that we know today. Now, 19 years later, the landscape has changed dramatically, with large, sprawling universes by Marvel and DC being the […]

GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS

Is there anything out there cooler than Godzilla? I mean, seriously. He’s a gigantic, intelligent, charismatic dinosaur with the ability to shoot atomic breath out of his mouth. He’s one of the most badass movie characters ever and without a doubt the most badass giant monster in […]

BRIGHTBURN

James Gunn has sort of made a name for himself by making somewhat subervisive genre films with a clever edge. Slither with the horror genre, Super! with the superhero genre, and Guardians of the Galaxy with the comic book genre. He loves genre fare and with his newfound clout in the industry and all that Guardians money, […]

ALADDIN (2019)

Remakes have been around since the dawn of film. Yes, they’re far more prevalent now than before, but seriously, the classic 1959 version of Ben Hur is a remake. What I’m saying is, remakes aren’t inherently bad. What matters is their original intent, which often isn’t noble. The biggest reason why […]

JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3 – PARABELLUM

This review contains some spoilers for John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum, so if you haven’t seen it yet, stop what you’re doing right now and get yourself down to the theater! But yeah, you’ve been warned. It’s no secret that I’m a massive fan of the John Wick films. […]

POKÉMON DETECTIVE PIKACHU

Ah, Pokémon. The media franchise that just never seems to die. Trading cards, video games, TV shows, movies, and pretty much everything else, nothing has endured and transcended time and generations quite like these little monsters. I was a child when the original cards, games, and show […]

LONG SHOT

Oh, Seth Rogen. The man that a lot of people seem to hate, but I absolutely love. He’s charismatic, has excellent comic timing and delivery, has great range, and is a screenwriter who cares about story as much as he does humor. He’s a guy I’ll always […]

MISSING LINK

I don’t often see animated films in theaters. I don’t have a bias against animation or anything, but when they come out, there’s usually something more interesting to check out. However, I always make room for the stop-motion maestros at Laika Studios. From horror, to comedy, to […]
