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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Allied: Movie Review

It seems Hollywood is bound and determined to churn out reboots, most of which nobody asked for or wanted. Thankfully, Allied, starring Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard is a welcome exception. While Allied owes a debt to the 1942 classic, Casablanca, this latest offering from director Robert Zemeckis is no reboot. Allied weaves a mix […]

Arrival: Movie Review

In the midst of the chaos that is this election week, I will attempt to reflect on the wonder that was Arrival. Let me start off by saying any and all space movies freak me out, and I usually cry a few times, but this movie is the first one where I cried like two […]

Suicide Squad: Movie Review

What happens when you get bad people to do good things? You get a ragtag bunch of Meta Humans who are forced into the Suicide Squad. This movie comes to us in the midst of the aftermath that was Batman v Superman, and after the impressive DC panel at Comic-Con that showed us new footage […]

Jason Bourne: Movie Review

Going into this movie I was very excited to see Matt Damon reprise his role, as Jason Bourne and I must say I was not disappointed. This is the fourth movie in the Bourne series, especially if you don’t count the Jeremy Renner offshoot. This is also the first Bourne film to not have the […]
