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 […]

ONCE UPON A DEADPOOL

I’m absolutely unbiased when it comes to MPAA ratings. I love Toy Story as much as I love Die Hard. It just matters how it serves the overall film. I’d rather the MPAA not exist at all, but they’re here to stay and filmmakers are left at their whim. Luckily, […]

SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE

Since filmmaking has been around for over 100 years, it’s quite difficult for one to be considered “groundbreaking” anymore. Sure, technology and techniques are always evolving and improving, but unless it truly shows something we’ve never seen before, does it really earn the word? I would say […]

VENOM

Sony, aka Columbia Pictures, just might be the most embarrassing and shameless of the Big Six movie studios. They used to be on top of the comic book movie game with their original Spider-Man films, but ever since the massive success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), they’ve been playing […]

TEEN TITANS GO! TO THE MOVIES

I’m sure I’m not alone (although still in the minority) in that I’m sick of comic book films. There’s just too many of them each year and with some rare exceptions, they all feel pretty much exactly the same: superhero(es) need to defeat the bad guy(s) and […]

ANT-MAN AND THE WASP

The first Ant-Man was the perfect definition of a “fine” movie. It wasn’t great, and it wasn’t bad. It was just fine, and while it was just fine, it ended up being one of the more enjoyable films in the MCU for me. The fact that it was rather irreverent and […]

DEADPOOL 2

While it was nothing truly spectacular, I found Deadpool to be one of the most enjoyable comic book films of the past few years. Deadpool’s humor isn’t really for everyone, me included, but I enjoyed it’s irreverent and satirical take on the current state of comic book films. Sure, the plot […]

AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR

The Avengers was a film that really shouldn’t have worked, but much to everybody’s surprise, it did. Joss Whedon masterfully handled the first superhero team-up ever witnessed onscreen. Not only did it successfully cap off Phase One of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), but it also told its own story about a group of […]

BLACK PANTHER

My biggest problem with the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), and with a lot of blockbuster filmmaking in general, is that it’s all so cold and calculated. Films that should be exhilarating and exciting are instead micromanaged and focused grouped to death, stifling creativity and resulting in bland end products. Sure, MCU films […]
