CAPTAIN MARVEL

When you’re 21 films and 11 years in to a film franchise, you’re bound to run into stories, characters, plotlines, action scenes, and many more elements that end up feeling a bit… recycled and stale. It’s just inevitable. When you have a bunch of different films that […]

ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL

While story is probably the most important ingredient that goes into making a great film, that doesn’t mean that the technological aspects of the artform should be ignored. Films tell stories, but so do books. There’s a whole world of technology that goes into filmmaking that’s been […]

BUMBLEBEE

Michael Bay’s Transformers series is probably the worst blockbuster franchise of all time. I don’t mean that as hyperbole either. I hate those films, but so do a lot of other people. They’re constantly ravaged by critics and as the diminishing box office returns have shown, even audiences are getting sick […]

ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL

I’m absolutely unbiased when it comes to MPAA ratings. I love Toy Story as much as I love Die Hard. It just matters how it serves the overall film. I’d rather the MPAA not exist at all, but they’re here to stay and filmmakers are left at their whim. Luckily, […]

FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD

When making a film, worldbuilding can be an incredible tool. Whether it’s completely grounded in reality, totally fantastical, or somewhere in between, thoughtful worldbuilding can make a movie feel alive. It’s great joining characters on their journey, but it’s even more exciting when we’re experiencing a whole […]

OVERLORD

THE NIGHT COMES FOR US

Whenever a movie comes out that a lot of people describe as “non-stop action”, they’re usually exaggerating. There’s certainly some action throughout, but it rarely ever meets the definition of “non-stop”, as the pace is usually broken up by dialogue and plot developments. The dialogue and plot […]

VENOM

Sony, aka Columbia Pictures, just might be the most embarrassing and shameless of the Big Six movie studios. They used to be on top of the comic book movie game with their original Spider-Man films, but ever since the massive success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), they’ve been playing […]
