DUNKIRK

I’ve always found Christopher Nolan the director to be much stronger than Christopher Nolan the screenwriter. The man has a wonderful vision that he expertly brings to the big screen with an immense level of technical craft, but when it comes to actually executing the story the […]

THE BIG SICK

Ah, romantic comedies. No other genre fills people with so much naïve hope and then with eventual heartbreak and realization. They often feel very phony, with two stars with hardly any chemistry both serving up a predictable and safe plot, with hardly an realism or consequence. Sure, […]

WAR FOR THE PLANET OF THE APES

Remember back in 2009 when a reboot was announced for the Planet of the Apes series that would chronicle the rise of the apes, and everybody rightfully laughed? Do you remember when it actually turned out to be quite good? Then the sequel was even better? The new Planet of […]

SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING

Spider-Man, Spider-Man, he gets rebooted like no one else can. Remember how much of a big deal the first Spider-Man film was back in 2002? After the superhero film genre pretty much petered out after failures like Batman & Robin, Sam Raimi came around and showed us that superheroes could be taken seriously […]

BABY DRIVER

Car chases are awesome. There’s simply no doubt about that. I don’t know what it is, but watching somebody so skilled behind the wheel perform incredible (and often dangerous) stunts is so exhilarating. They’re a staple of action cinema. Edgar Wright is also awesome. He’s a smart […]

TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT

One of the main criticisms levied against horror films is that they’re often devoid of any sort of characterization, story, or thematic depth. Sure, the main intent is to scare you and if a horror film does so, it technically succeeds, but where’s the fun if there’s […]

THE MUMMY

Thanks to Disney and Marvel, cinematic universes are all the rage now! Ever since The Avengers made a billion dollars and proved huge, expansive universes could be successful, every other movie studio scrounged up whatever properties they could in order to have their own interconnected franchises. It’s gone […]

WONDER WOMAN

Regardless of what most people thought about Man of Steel, it’s one of my favorite superhero films. One of the reasons why is that it set out to tell an interesting story surrounding Superman and his journey for acceptance and understanding, making him a compelling character for […]

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES

I have a confession to make: I can’t stand the character Captain Jack Sparrow. He’s obnoxious, irritating, bumbling, obscene, and all around just frustrating to watch. Yes, I realize I just described his entire character and that’s the point of him, but I could just never bring myself […]
