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 […]

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, […]

You think Disney and Marvel Studios would really stop milking that cow? Of course, there’s more in store! Just because […]

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 […]

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 […]
