DOLITTLE

It’s not news that remakes and reboots are all the rage in Hollywood. Did you know that the Eddie Murphy version of Dr. Dolittle is a actually a reboot of a 60’s film based off the original books? Probably not. Even if you enjoyed Murphy’s version, were you clamoring for a new […]

DARK WATERS

I love me a good legal thriller, but like all well-worn genres, a lot of them just kind of end up feeling stale and more of the same. It’s a lot of people in suits talking in boardrooms, in hallways, in offices, all while pouring over documents […]

DOCTOR SLEEP

Some stories just don’t need sequels… Scratch that. Most stories just don’t need sequels. The entire point of someone telling a story is that it has an ending. A point it was trying to make. We’re not supposed to follow characters for their whole lives, but just a glimpse […]

DON’T LET GO

All stories come from asking one simple question: What if? What if a young college graduate started an affair with a much older family friend? What if a killer shark terrorized a populated coastal town? What if a wealthy man dressed up as a bat in order […]

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 […]

DUMBO

Boy, oh, boy, is Disney just absolutely going ham with these live-action remakes. If 2010’s Alice in Wonderland told us anything, it’s that a $1 billion worth of people will flock to the theaters for such a thing. Some of these animated classics seem ripe for live action remakes, […]

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, […]

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 […]

DEATH WISH (2018)

Revenge movies are my jam, but what really requires a film centered around revenge to work? Well, it helps to see the protagonist get back at all the people who wronged him in the most brutal ways possible. That’s key. What matters most, though, is believing in the reason for revenge […]

DARKEST HOUR

I’m pretty sure that Gary Oldman is my favorite actor ever. No matter the project, whether it’s being directed by Francis Ford Coppola or by some hack, the man always gives it his all. His all is never terrible, though. Even in the worst films, he can sometimes be that one […]
