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 […]

Atomic Blonde: Movie Review

I really wanted to like this movie. A slick, stylish, and aggressive action/spy movie? That’s all I needed to hear. Atomic Blonde looked like something different, something new. Charlize Theron crushes as a Cold War super spy. The setting, Berlin in late 1989 with the wall on the brink of coming down, is clever and […]

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 […]
