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 […]

6 UNDERGROUND

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

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was a massive surprise for both the moviegoing public and Columbia Pictures. As it should, a sequel to Jumanji was met with skepticism when it was announced, and it reeked of desperation from Sony to repurpose any IP they own to make a quick buck. […]

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.

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.

FAST & FURIOUS PRESENTS: HOBBS & SHAW

The Fast and the Furious franchise didn’t really become enjoyable to me until Fast Five. Not only was it a lot more fun and self-aware by going for full action schlock, it was also the introduction of Dwayne Johnson that further added to the fun factor. Compared to the brick-faced, […]

STUBER

Comedy is a genre that relies greatly on its stars. Sure, the writer’s jokes need to be funny, but the actors need to make us laugh with the right timing and delivery. A comedy film can get by with a rote plot and characters because those funny […]

SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME

Can you believe some people actually thought Avengers: Endgame would be the final installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU)? I mean, it has “end” right in the title… Ha! You think Disney and Marvel Studios would really stop milking that cow? Of course, there’s more in store! Just because […]
