INCREDIBLES 2

Superhero and comic book films sure are such a big drag nowadays aren’t they? Sure, you get the occasional outlier like The Dark Knight or Logan that breaks the mold, but for the most part, they all feel the same. This is exactly how people felt back in 2004 during the start of the […]

UPGRADE

There are some movie concepts that just make you laugh at the absurdity of them. Killer Klowns from Outer Space is a perfect example. The title alone instills confusion and laughter, it’s a movie that knows exactly what it is and makes no bones about it. You want killer klowns turning people into […]

SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY

Kurt Russell is one of my favorite actors of all time. He’s the kind of actor who oozes charm, charisma, and suaveness, making the ladies swoon and the guys jealous. Have you ever seen his audition footage for Han Solo back in the 70’s, though? Well, it’s […]

DEADPOOL 2

While it was nothing truly spectacular, I found Deadpool to be one of the most enjoyable comic book films of the past few years. Deadpool’s humor isn’t really for everyone, me included, but I enjoyed it’s irreverent and satirical take on the current state of comic book films. Sure, the plot […]

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR

The Avengers was a film that really shouldn’t have worked, but much to everybody’s surprise, it did. Joss Whedon masterfully handled the first superhero team-up ever witnessed onscreen. Not only did it successfully cap off Phase One of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), but it also told its own story about a group of […]

RAMPAGE

When my friend and I saw The Hurricane Heist last month, we were treated to back to back trailers for Rampage and Skyscraper, both new blockbuster films starring The Rock. After the second trailer, my friend leaned over to me and whispered, “So, is The Rock the new Arnold Schwarzenegger now?” Well, with his […]

READY PLAYER ONE

I really hate nostalgia. That doesn’t mean I don’t understand why people get nostalgic. It makes perfect sense for people to lament about the good things in their past that are no longer around. I get nostalgic about things too. Nostalgia doesn’t do much other than impede […]

PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING

Oh, giant monster movies. You gotta love ’em, right? Who doesn’t enjoy a good rock ’em, sock ’em time between two gigantic beings in a big city? I know I sure do. I grew up watching the old Godzilla films, all while playing with my toy Godzilla and King Ghidorah, making them fight […]

THE HURRICANE HEIST

When it comes to most schlocky action films, you know exactly what you’re going to get: a whole lot of nothing but stupid ridiculousness. Is it going to be well made stupid ridiculousness, though? That’s the key, but not often the case. You’re obviously not going to get any thematic depth from any of […]

TOMB RAIDER

Raiders of the Lost Ark is one of my favorite films of all time. It may actually be my favorite film overall, but sometimes it’s hard to pick. It’s just a 100% pitch perfect action adventure film, though. It’s exciting, tense, brutal, dramatic, and overall, just plain fun. […]
