2018 – YEAR IN REVIEW

I’m sure the number will only increase next year, but 2018 is now my new record for over 70 films reviewed. While I have seen more films than the last two years, this year has unfortunately felt much weaker than those. Don’t get me wrong. Just like […]

ESCAPE ROOM

Happy New Year, everybody! Well, at least it is a happy new year for a few days until that first Friday… that first Friday when a movie studio dumps whatever film they’re too embarrassed to release at any other time of the year. Oh, yes, it’s the Dump Month of January, […]

BUMBLEBEE

Michael Bay’s Transformers series is probably the worst blockbuster franchise of all time. I don’t mean that as hyperbole either. I hate those films, but so do a lot of other people. They’re constantly ravaged by critics and as the diminishing box office returns have shown, even audiences are getting sick […]

BLACK MIRROR: BANDERSNATCH

With video games being the one and only exception, experiencing art is a completely passive activity, with no actual impact on the art coming from the person being entertained. When we watch a movie, we’re not consulted about how the story goes, or what decisions the characters […]

BOY ERASED

I’m usually disinterested in a film when it claims to be “based on a true story” as it’s just a cheap marketing ploy, but when you get something based off a memoir, then you have my attention. When you’re taking the words directly from the person, it’s […]

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 […]

RALPH BREAKS THE INTERNET

It’s hard not to be cynical about sequels, because more often than not, they’re just not necessary. The reason stories have endings is because it’s just that: they ended. The story is over and the characters journeys have been completed. Of course, this doesn’t stop studios from wanting […]

CREED II

I’m sure I deserve a hundred lashes or something awful for what I’m about to admit. Up until last week, I had never seen any of the Rocky films. Yes, for the longest time, I had never seen one of the most popular American movie series ever. While I […]
