STUBER

Comedy is a genre that relies greatly on its stars. Sure, the writer’s jokes need to be funny, but the actors need to make us laugh with the right timing and delivery. A comedy film can get by with a rote plot and characters because those funny […]

SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME

Can you believe some people actually thought Avengers: Endgame would be the final installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU)? I mean, it has “end” right in the title… Ha! You think Disney and Marvel Studios would really stop milking that cow? Of course, there’s more in store! Just because […]

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 […]

CHILD’S PLAY (2019)

Pretty much every horror movie has been remade now, so when a Child’s Play remake was inevitably announced, everyone at this point just sighed and said, “Okay, whatever. We all know it’ll suck.” To make things seem even worse for this movie, the whole reason it exists is kind […]

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 […]

LONG SHOT

Oh, Seth Rogen. The man that a lot of people seem to hate, but I absolutely love. He’s charismatic, has excellent comic timing and delivery, has great range, and is a screenwriter who cares about story as much as he does humor. He’s a guy I’ll always […]

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 […]

SHAZAM!

With the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), Warner Bros. has not only tried to copy Marvel’s success with their own cinematic universe (MCU), but with a more grim and dark tone in an attempt to set it apart. The MCU is all about fun, quips, and bright colors, with the DCEU occupying […]

US

New filmmaking careers are always exciting to watch, especially when they have a debut that’s so strong. Look no further than Jordan Peele, who won an Academy Award for this debut screenplay that was Get Out. He already had a lot of experience in comedy with MadTV and Key & […]
