ZOMBIELAND: DOUBLE TAP

The reason a lot of belated movie sequels fall flat on their face is because they usually lack that spirit and tone of the original film. It could be many reasons. Filmmaking sensibilities and technology has changed since then. Actors have aged and may have stopped really […]

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 […]

IT CHAPTER TWO

Adapting a book to film comes with a lot of challenges and that’s simply because they’re two vastly different mediums. There’s a lot more freedom when you’re using just words, giving you the ability to concoct literally anything from your mind and put it into somebody else’s. […]

TOY STORY 4

WARNING: Mild spoilers ahead!  The Toy Story franchise is basically one that’s grown up along with me. I have vague memories of the seeing the original in theaters when I was only 4-years-old and I saw both sequels in theaters. Toy Story 3 came 11 years after the second one and told […]
