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 […]

AVENGERS: ENDGAME

I know I’m in the very small minority that didn’t really care for Avengers: Infinity War, but to be honest, I was actually pretty hyped up for this conclusion. While Infinity War didn’t fully work for me, I was interested to see how it would resolve that story, but […]

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 […]

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE: FALLOUT

Action films seem to get a bad rap from some people. They’re often criticized for being light on plot, characterization, and thematic depth, which they often are. However, people seem to forget that terrible films exist in every genre. Drama films are usually the most lauded, but you don’t […]

JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM

I honestly believe Jurassic World is one of the worst blockbuster films of this decade. The plot and premise are amazingly stupid. The characters are bland and poorly developed. The effects and action sequences are mediocre and unimaginative. The amount of fan service and meta commentary is unbearable. Worst of […]
