Dunkirk: Movie Review

Dunkirk, Christopher Nolan’s first film based off of a historical event premieres this weekend. This film takes us to the event in Dunkirk, a town in France, from which the film takes its title. In 1940 at the beginning of World War II there was an evacuation of the Allied troops, consisting of French, Belgian […]

Women’s Rise to Film

If anyone were to ask me what my favorite Disney princess was, I would answer Pocahontas. As a child, I would jump off the couch just as Pocahontas would jump off the waterfall in the movie. She was an example of what a strong woman was to me and I appreciate that. Unfortunately, there aren’t […]

Spider-Man: Homecoming – Movie Review

They had a good run, but Marvel’s streak of comic-fueled success had to end eventually, right? Probably this time. That’s the take I was bracing for, girding myself against the unwelcome likelihood that Marvel’s bound to lay an egg sometime. Maybe it’s that the last three Spider-Man movies from Sony haven’t exactly set the world […]

Despicable Me 3: Movie Review

Upon my viewing of Despicable Me 3, one other movie came to my mind: The 6th Day.  If you don’t know this movie, essentially the main thing I remember about it is that the main character, played by Arnold Schwarzenegger, keeps getting cloned and every time he does the clones get more and more stupid.  And […]

Wonder Woman: Movie Review

The long awaited fourth installment of the DCEU (DC Extended Universe) Wonder Woman hits the theaters this weekend and the lead up to it comes with a lot of anticipation. Now this movie wasn’t widely promoted up until the month before its release yet that still isn’t going to stop people from going. This is […]

Baywatch Movie Review

If Citizen Kane, widely regarded as one of the finest films ever made, is the cinematic equivalent of dinner at a four-star restaurant, Baywatch is a Hot Pocket and a cold Mountain Dew. Both are satisfying in their way, but only one reflects enduring and lofty creative effort. Not every movie aspires to be high […]

Alien: Covenant – Movie Review

Following the unexpected positive reception of Prometheus comes the film Alien: Covenant, which is set between Prometheus and the original Alien film. So this thankfully completes the overarching storyline of the entire Alien franchise, I do not include the Alien vs Predator films because those are spinoffs. I went into this film feeling optimistic and […]

Dunkirk Movie Trailer & Response

One of my most anticipated movies of this year, for a multitude of reasons, Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk has now provided audiences with its second preview. The scope of Nolan’s first foray into a war film will, per usual Nolan, be epic. Just from the score accompanying the first trailer, you feel stranded alongside the soldiers […]

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Movie Review

The Guardians of the Galaxy have returned to handle the extraterrestrial threats which the Avengers are too busy beating each other up to deal with. This sequel picks up where the 2014 entry into the Marvel Cinematic Universe left off. This time around, director James Gunn is unencumbered by establishing origin stories. The relationships are […]

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 […]
