Ant-Man And The Wasp Movie Review

Peyton Reed is back to direct Ant-Man and the Wasp, the sequel to his 2015 surprise hit, Ant-Man. The film takes place roughly two years after the events of Captain America: Civil War, which saw Scott Lang (Paul Rudd) get arrested for helping Captain America during the airport battle in Germany. Lang, who has been […]

Sicario: Day Of The Soldado Movie Review

In 2015, Sicario wove together seemingly disparate threads to tell a story that’s tragic on personal and geopolitical levels, delving into the ultraviolent world of the Mexican drug cartels. In 2018, Josh Brolin and Benicio Del Toro reprise their roles for further exploration of a world far more violent than most Americans can relate to […]

Hotel Artemis Movie Review

Hotel Artemis Movie Review: 10 years from now, the streets of LA are rampant with enraged civilians demanding clean water and rioting ever closer to the Hotel Artemis. The hidden in plain sight disheveled building serves as a safe haven for the underground world where members (criminals) drop in to get their wounds patched up […]

Deadpool 2 Movie Review Starring Ryan Reynolds

Deadpool 2 Movie Review: When the first Deadpool film came out in 2016, it revolutionized the superhero genre. For the first time, mainstream audiences were treated to a major R-rated superhero film. It proved that the superhero genre could be successful with an R-rating and still paved the way for the Academy award-nominated film “Logan“, […]

Ready Player One Movie Review

Ready Player One Movie Review: If you haven’t read Ernest Cline’s 2011 immersive novel Ready Player One, you may not understand why it’s so gratifying as a fan that its adaptation fell into the hands of Stephen Spielberg. The entire time I read the book I considered how immense and complicated of a process it […]

Pacific Rim: Uprising Movie Review

Pacific Rim: Uprising: When giant robots and giant aliens battle on the big screen everyone wins, right? Well, maybe not the unlucky suckers who happen to live in the cities playing host to the fight. And maybe not anyone who sat through any of the Transformers movies (thanks for nothing, Michael Bay). Pacific Rim: Uprising […]

Tomb Raider 2018 Movie Review

Tomb Raider 2018: Like other action heroes before her such as Bond, Bourne, and Lisbeth Salander (I think she deserves to be thrown in here), Lara Croft receives the additional adaptation treatment 17 years after the last time we saw the heroine on the big screen. Now portrayed by Oscar winner Alicia Vikander, Croft is […]

Game Night: Movie Review

Directing duo, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, return for the first time since their debut feature film, Vacation, released nearly three years ago. While Vacation was received very poorly by fans and critics, that should not deter audiences from seeing their new film, Game Night. After a not-so-great marketing campaign, I think most people […]

Battle of the Reviews: Black Panther

After directing Fruitvale Station, Creed and now, Black Panther, Ryan Coogler has established himself as one of the very best directors of our era. In Black Panther, he created a breathtakingly beautiful world that was as vibrant as it was authentic. I am by no means an expert in African culture, however, it appears as […]

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

For the third time in as many years, a new Star Wars movie hits theaters just before Christmas. As Disney/Lucasfilm cranks out its annual offering from a galaxy far, far away, fan excitement gives way to expectation. It’s not enough that the movies are being made, they have to be good. Luckily for everyone involved, […]
