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 […]

CAPTIVE STATE

While story is often a key element to a great film, it’s not always required for a memorable and entertaining experience. “Style over substance” is a term used a lot, but filmmaking is art just like anything else. Stylish filmmaking with not a lot of substance, but […]

CAPTAIN MARVEL

When you’re 21 films and 11 years in to a film franchise, you’re bound to run into stories, characters, plotlines, action scenes, and many more elements that end up feeling a bit… recycled and stale. It’s just inevitable. When you have a bunch of different films that […]

HAPPY DEATH DAY 2U

I’ve talked about sequels and their effects of diminishing returns many times before. It’s rare that sequels are better than the original, but it does happen. What’s even more rare is when a sequel completely abandons the conventions and genre that was established before. Evil Dead II is one […]

ALITA: BATTLE ANGEL

While story is probably the most important ingredient that goes into making a great film, that doesn’t mean that the technological aspects of the artform should be ignored. Films tell stories, but so do books. There’s a whole world of technology that goes into filmmaking that’s been […]

GLASS

Now that everybody is clear on what it’s all about (and if you don’t know and get mad about this, it’s really your fault), I can finally talk more about M. Night Shyamalan’s Split. I wasn’t a big fan of it, and a big reason why was during […]

REPLICAS

With Escape Room kicking off the 2019 film year, I was surprised that the first film of January ended up being not so terrible. I commented it could possibly be an omen for a good year to come, but who was I kidding? Of course it wouldn’t last! Not only a […]

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 […]
