  • REVIEW: It (2017)

    Why are horror movies suddenly saving the summer? Last year, Lights Out, The Conjuring 2, and The Shallows proved to be a bigger critical hit, even though together they still made less than films like Suicide Squad and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. This is why I’m so glad to see that It, a film so hotly[…]

  • REVIEW: Atomic Blonde

    Atomic Blonde is the latest film from director David Leitch, who co-directed the 2014 film, John Wick. It’s no surprise that in terms of action, this film shares a lot of similarities. The main protagonist is a total badass, the enemies are usually killed with a gun, and the stunts are[…]

  • REVIEW: Dunkirk

    Dunkirk is the latest film from writer-director Christopher Nolan, and, along with Baby Driver and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, was one of my three most anticipated films of the year. Going into a Christopher Nolan film, I expected two things. One: great writing. Two: Phenomenal sound editing and visual effects. Not only[…]

    After eight movies, a short-lived television series, comic books, LP record dramas, and hundreds of Apes collectibles, one has to wonder how long this franchise can stay fresh and original with a storyline that runs familiar with those who viewed the originals.

  • SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Breaks the Rules

    To state Spider-Man: Homecoming is the best movie to come out of Marvel Studios to date is a bit of a stretch, with the first Avengers raising the bar on superhero movies… but the latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe is easily one of the three best. The studio faced a[…]
