POKÉMON DETECTIVE PIKACHU

Ah, Pokémon. The media franchise that just never seems to die. Trading cards, video games, TV shows, movies, and pretty much everything else, nothing has endured and transcended time and generations quite like these little monsters. I was a child when the original cards, games, and show […]

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 […]

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, […]

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 […]

When making a film, worldbuilding can be an incredible tool. Whether it’s completely grounded in reality, totally fantastical, or somewhere in between, thoughtful worldbuilding can make a movie feel alive. It’s great joining characters on their journey, but it’s even more exciting when we’re experiencing a whole […]

SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY

Kurt Russell is one of my favorite actors of all time. He’s the kind of actor who oozes charm, charisma, and suaveness, making the ladies swoon and the guys jealous. Have you ever seen his audition footage for Han Solo back in the 70’s, though? Well, it’s […]

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 […]

THE SHAPE OF WATER

For me to be a fan of a director, they don’t have to consistently put out great, or even good films. Probably the biggest thing I love most about watching a film is seeing a director’s vision come to life in the most creative way possible. Guillermo […]

STAR WARS: EPISODE VIII: THE LAST JEDI

When talking about movies, I sometimes get the question, “Hunter, do you like Star Wars?” Well, that’s a pretty easy answer. I like good movies, and some of the Star Wars movies are good, and some of them not so much. I genuinely love A New Hope and The Empire Strikes Back, which […]
