Regardless of what most people thought about Man of Steel, it’s one of my favorite superhero films. One of the reasons why is that it set out to tell an interesting story surrounding Superman and his journey for acceptance and understanding, making him a compelling character for […]

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES

I have a confession to make: I can’t stand the character Captain Jack Sparrow. He’s obnoxious, irritating, bumbling, obscene, and all around just frustrating to watch. Yes, I realize I just described his entire character and that’s the point of him, but I could just never bring myself […]

Nothing can ever just be left alone anymore. Once the film Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 released in 2011, we all thought the franchise would be laid to rest. Not on J.K. Rowling’s watch. After her attempts at writing more mature fiction yielded lukewarm […]

DOCTOR STRANGE

Another six months, another Marvel movie. With five TV series, five short films, and now on their fourteenth feature, it’s been nearly impossible to escape from the phenomenon. With such a huge variety of talent that’s been utilized over the years, their projects have largely ranged in […]

KUBO AND THE TWO STRINGS

Stop-motion animation has always been my favorite kind of animation. Not only is it unparalleled in the field when it comes to sheer labor and hard work, but I also think it’s the most beautiful. Everything is so meticulously crafted to bring these stunning characters and worlds […]
