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 […]

GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS

Is there anything out there cooler than Godzilla? I mean, seriously. He’s a gigantic, intelligent, charismatic dinosaur with the ability to shoot atomic breath out of his mouth. He’s one of the most badass movie characters ever and without a doubt the most badass giant monster in […]

ALADDIN (2019)

Remakes have been around since the dawn of film. Yes, they’re far more prevalent now than before, but seriously, the classic 1959 version of Ben Hur is a remake. What I’m saying is, remakes aren’t inherently bad. What matters is their original intent, which often isn’t noble. The biggest reason why […]

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 […]

FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD

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 […]
