ABOMINABLE

While there are plenty of quality animated films out there, I’ve grown out of a lot of their tendencies. It usually takes something with a strong script and unique animation to catch my interest, but what I really want is an animated film that respects its target […]

THE LION KING

A lot of people like to write off animated films as simple, mindless films made for children. Unlike a lot of other genres and technological advancements in film, animation occupies a special spot in it all. It’s the only thing that really gives you endless possibilities to […]

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 […]

ALADDIN (2019)

Remakes have been around since the dawn of film. Yes, they’re far more prevalent now than before, but seriously, the classic 1959 version of Ben Hur is a remake. What I’m saying is, remakes aren’t inherently bad. What matters is their original intent, which often isn’t noble. The biggest reason why […]

MISSING LINK

I don’t often see animated films in theaters. I don’t have a bias against animation or anything, but when they come out, there’s usually something more interesting to check out. However, I always make room for the stop-motion maestros at Laika Studios. From horror, to comedy, to […]

HELLBOY (2019)

Reboots, remakes, and all that have every reason in the world to make people apprehensive about them. Like usual, pretty much everyone was apprehensive about the Hellboy reboot, but there were things here and there that made me somewhat interested. I really enjoyed Neil Marshall’s other films, with stuff like Dog Soldiers and Doomsday being […]

DUMBO

Boy, oh, boy, is Disney just absolutely going ham with these live-action remakes. If 2010’s Alice in Wonderland told us anything, it’s that a $1 billion worth of people will flock to the theaters for such a thing. Some of these animated classics seem ripe for live action remakes, […]

AQUAMAN

Ever since Batman Begins in 2005, comic book films have followed a trend of taking themselves a little bit too seriously. It’s perfectly fine for some of them to do so, as some of  their respective source material is dark and gritty, or dabbled in those tones before. It […]

FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD

When making a film, worldbuilding can be an incredible tool. Whether it’s completely grounded in reality, totally fantastical, or somewhere in between, thoughtful worldbuilding can make a movie feel alive. It’s great joining characters on their journey, but it’s even more exciting when we’re experiencing a whole […]
