SONIC THE HEDGEHOG

They all say that bad publicity is still good publicity, and that couldn’t have been more true in the case of the Sonic the Hedgehog movie. When the first trailer arrived and that horrid design was revealed, for once in a blue moon, the internet rightfully acted with disdain and revulsion. […]

BIRDS OF PREY (AND THE FANTABULOUS EMANCIPATION OF ONE HARLEY QUINN)

Suicide Squad is easily one of the worst recent comic book films, but as terrible films often do, it raked in the dough at the box office. Despite many hating it, Warner Bros. doesn’t hate money, so they of course greenlit a sequel. However, when you’re making a […]

1917

With filmmaking being around for over a century, it’s difficult to find new ways to innovate. There’s not really much else that can be done. We have audio, color, computer generated effects, and digitally recreated humans to show the progress since the 1880’s. As time goes on and technology […]

STAR WARS: EPISODE IX – THE RISE OF SKYWALKER

Trilogies are a tough nut to crack. You’re telling a single story over three installments, but each installment also has to stand on its own as its own movie. Sometimes trilogies are completely planned from the beginning, such as The Lord of the Rings, but most of them […]

I’m not biased when it comes to movie genres. All genres are different and have different goals, and it’s all about how the filmmakers achieve that. For example, I love a quality action films. Well, what makes for a great action film? Great action. Great action that […]

JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL

TERMINATOR: DARK FATE

The first two Terminator films are examples of movies that are simply some of the best in their genre. The Terminator is one of the best horror films of all time, with Terminator 2: Judgment Day being one of the best action films. They’re simply classics, but that never stops sequels from being […]

ZOMBIELAND: DOUBLE TAP

The reason a lot of belated movie sequels fall flat on their face is because they usually lack that spirit and tone of the original film. It could be many reasons. Filmmaking sensibilities and technology has changed since then. Actors have aged and may have stopped really […]

GEMINI MAN

When a bunch of wide release films come out each week, I choose either the most popular one that weekend, or one that I think won’t totally irritate, or bore me. Sometimes I’ll completely write off a film until the last minute, when there’s suddenly something that suddenly […]

RAMBO: LAST BLOOD

The Rambo franchise is unique in the fact that First Blood, the first film in the series, feels completely different from its follow-ups, in almost every respect. Tone, thematic depth, intelligence, grounded realism, etc. I watched the entire series for the first time to prepare for this final film and […]
