JOKER

I’ve commented before about how while a majority of comic book films are decent, they all feel exactly the same. Just superheroes going up against a big bad and punching each other. The only time I’ve ever felt the comic book film genre be transcended was The Dark Knight, which isn’t a […]

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 […]

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 […]

DARK PHOENIX

There is something that feels antiquated about the X-Men franchise now. The first film came out in 2000 and kicked off the modern comic book craze that we know today. Now, 19 years later, the landscape has changed dramatically, with large, sprawling universes by Marvel and DC being the […]

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 […]

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 […]

CAPTAIN MARVEL

When you’re 21 films and 11 years in to a film franchise, you’re bound to run into stories, characters, plotlines, action scenes, and many more elements that end up feeling a bit… recycled and stale. It’s just inevitable. When you have a bunch of different films that […]

GLASS

Now that everybody is clear on what it’s all about (and if you don’t know and get mad about this, it’s really your fault), I can finally talk more about M. Night Shyamalan’s Split. I wasn’t a big fan of it, and a big reason why was during […]

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 […]
