Power Rangers: Movie Review

Since teenagers think they’re invincible anyway, why not make them superheroes? Or should I say Power Rangers. The latest reinvention of a kids’ franchise for the big screen, Saban’s Power Rangers, reboots the ’90s live action TV show remarkably well. After a childhood of adoring Transformers and G.I. Joe, my excitement turned to bitter disappointment […]

Life: Movie Review

Once again, I subjected myself to a space thriller as my love for sci-fi outweighed my fear of anything and everything outside of our atmosphere. Luckily, like Arrival, Life pleasantly terrified me. While you can expect some of the typical devices of films of this kind, writers Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick (Deadpool), along with […]

Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, was a surprising choice for the film since to me he is known for the coming of age indie flick Kings of Summer. Taking […]

Logan Movie Review

The X-Men universe is one that has lots to offer, and the best use of that has come to fruition in the final chapter of the Wolverine trilogy, Logan. In Hugh Jackman’s 10th incarnation of the tortured and seemingly immortal character, he is broken down even more than we’ve ever seen. Director James Mangold, who […]

The Great Wall – Movie Review

I always thought the Great Wall of China was protection from the Mongol horde. Turns out it was really a defense against huge reptile monsters. Who knew? The Great Wall, starring Matt Damon, tells the made-up history of the iconic fortification-turned-tourist-attraction. There’s no allegory here. This is a straight-up monster movie. This movie blends near-constant […]
