JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE

There seems to be this bizarre train of thought amongst my age demographic (millennials who grew up in the 1990’s) that the film Jumanji is a “classic”. It’s a perfectly fine adventure film with good performances, fun action setpieces, and visual effects that have aged as well as a glass of iced […]

STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII: THE LAST JEDI

When talking about movies, I sometimes get the question, “Hunter, do you like Star Wars?” Well, that’s a pretty easy answer. I like good movies, and some of the Star Wars movies are good, and some of them not so much. I genuinely love A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, which […]

JUSTICE LEAGUE

Every year has a box office and critical surprise success story, and Wonder Woman happened to be both. Coming hot off the heels of three poorly received DC comics films, nobody expected it to be one of the best reviewed and highest grossing films of the year. It wasn’t just a solid film, but one of those […]

THE FOREIGNER

I’ve made it known in other reviews that I have a big soft spot for revenge films. I don’t know what it is, but there’s just something about watching someone getting back at the ones who wronged them that just strikes a primal chord with me. I’m also a big fan of martial arts […]

THOR: RAGNAROK

Whenever a new film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) comes out and a director with a distinct voice and style is attached, people always hype it up that this one is “finally going to be different”. Here we have a new Thor film, with New Zealander Taika Waititi, a comedy director known for his witty and highly absurd humor, […]

KINGSMAN: THE GOLDEN CIRCLE

Some genres as we know them are effectively dead, or at the very least, on life support. Every now and then, a genre film will be released in order to rejuvenate those feelings that old Hollywood used to give us. While they’re fun, we realize why these […]

AMERICAN ASSASSIN

*sniff sniff* You smell that? What is that awful stench? Wait… I think I see something coming over the horizon!  Oh, it’s the dump month that we call September! Yes, ladies and gentlemen, as the summer movie season comes to a close, the studios start dumping their more forgettable […]

THE DARK TOWER

It’s finally here, folks. The long awaited adaptation to Stephen King’s self-proclaimed magnum opus, The Dark Tower… a book series that I’ve never read. I’ve actually never read any Stephen King novel before. I’ve seen quite a few films based off his works, however. Did you know he directed a film once? It’s called Maximum […]

ATOMIC BLONDE

Ever since John Wick came out of nowhere to blow everybody away back in 2014, I’ve been eagerly awaiting the next projects from directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski. Stahelski went on to make John Wick: Chapter 2, delivering one of the best action film sequels of all time (and my […]

DUNKIRK

I’ve always found Christopher Nolan the director to be much stronger than Christopher Nolan the screenwriter. The man has a wonderful vision that he expertly brings to the big screen with an immense level of technical craft, but when it comes to actually executing the story the […]
