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, […]

Justice League: Movie Review

Following the critical and box office success of Wonder Woman, it is easy to say that audiences have a renewed interest in Justice League. The team up film starring Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman,) Ben Affleck (Batman,) Jason Momoa (Aquaman,) Ezra Miller (The Flash,) Henry Cavill (Superman) and Ray Fisher (Cyborg.) This is a continuation of […]

Thor: Ragnarok – Movie Review

Thor returns yet again in another solo movie to protect the nine realms from danger, but he faces his match when he comes up against Hela, the Goddess of Death. I honestly respect Marvel’s delicate balance between humor and drama in their films. It definitely brings fun to the story about superheroes rather than just […]

The Foreigner: Movie Review

Growing up in my family, I was from an early age bombarded with any and all Jackie Chan films. During my days of watching Spice World on repeat, I was gifted The Legend of the Drunken Master and I’ve been a fan ever since. It’s been awhile since we’ve seen Mr. Chan back in action […]

Two time Academy Award nominated Hany Abu-Assad serves as director of this story of surviving despite the seemingly insurmountable odds. Winslet plays Alex Martin, a restless and sometimes reckless photojournalist, who convinces Elba’s character, the calm and collected […]
