Gifted Movie Review

It was made very clear to me ridiculously ahead of time by my Chris Evans obsessed little cousin that I must do everything in my power, which is not much, to ensure I was assigned this film. Fortunately for me, once I saw the heartwarming preview, I was sold on my forced fate. Director Marc […]

Best Movies You’ve Never Seen

For every movie that enjoys wild success and endless acclaim, countless others simply fade away, never delivering on the high hopes filmmakers have for their work. Many movies, maybe even most, deserve to be forgotten. But a select few deserve better. Whether because of bad timing, halfhearted marketing, or just being ahead of their time, […]

Ghost in the Shell: Movie Review

When I think of ghost stories, a futuristic techno-nightmare version of Japan isn’t the first thing that comes to mind. Maybe it should. Ghost in the Shell paints a haunting picture of a world in which the line between human and machine is blurry, we’re talking three-martini lunch blurry. As yet another Hollywood reboot of […]

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 […]

The boys are back in town!  Renton, Sick Boy, Begbie, and Spud return in Danny Boyle’s long awaited sequel to Trainspotting, and while Edinburgh may have moved on toward gentrification and modernization, the boys are still coming to terms with the demons of their past. Twenty years have passed since the heroin deal that was supposed […]

Beauty and the Beast: Movie Review

Disney’s foray into adapting their classic animated films continues this year with Beauty and the Beast starring Emma Watson as Belle and the likes of Ewan McGregor and Ian McKellen as supporting characters. This star-studded adaptation comes after the successes of The Jungle Book and Cinderella, the latter being the first adaptation that Disney made. […]

Kong: Skull Island Movie Review

Kong: Skull Island is a continuation of the Monster-verse epic Godzilla, and a predecessor to the planned King Kong vs Godzilla rumored to be coming up for 2020. 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 […]
