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 […]

READY PLAYER ONE

I really hate nostalgia. That doesn’t mean I don’t understand why people get nostalgic. It makes perfect sense for people to lament about the good things in their past that are no longer around. I get nostalgic about things too. Nostalgia doesn’t do much other than impede […]

PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING

Oh, giant monster movies. You gotta love ’em, right? Who doesn’t enjoy a good rock ’em, sock ’em time between two gigantic beings in a big city? I know I sure do. I grew up watching the old Godzilla films, all while playing with my toy Godzilla and King Ghidorah, making them fight […]

ANNIHILATION

One of the main things I love about horror films is the overwhelming sense of dread they can make you feel. I love going through the same emotions the characters are. Constantly uneased and tense, with an odd feeling forming in my stomach anticipating what could happen next. An […]

THE CLOVERFIELD PARADOX

Cloverfield was a perfectly fine, entertaining found footage monster movie. That’s all it ever was, and all it ever should have been. We never needed a sequel, and we certainly didn’t need it to start a connected universe with other films… yet here we are. In 2016, eight […]

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 […]

BLADE RUNNER 2049

I like the final cut (the only version I’ve seen) of Blade Runner. I don’t exactly love it, nor hold it up on the sci-fi masterpiece pedestal like some do, but I recognize its impact. It has a wonderfully immersive atmosphere and world, while being a masterwork of practical effects, quite possibly the pinnacle achievement in that field. However, […]

THE DARK TOWER

It’s finally here, folks. The long awaited adaptation to Stephen King’s self-proclaimed magnum opus, The Dark Tower… a book series that I’ve never read. I’ve actually never read any Stephen King novel before. I’ve seen quite a few films based off his works, however. Did you know he directed a film once? It’s called Maximum […]

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 […]

TRANSFORMERS: THE LAST KNIGHT

Here we go again, folks. Another Michael Bay Transformers film has come crashing back onto the big screen. “But Hunter, you hate these movies. Why do you continue to watch them?” Well, I do hate these movies. I never even saw the previous film with the dinosaur […]
