Leap! Movie Review

2017 has not been a good year for animated films. At this point last year, we had Kung Fu Panda 3,  Zootopia, The Little Prince, Finding Dory, and Kubo and the Two Strings. From that list alone, two films were nominated for an Academy Award with Zootopia eventually coming out as the winner for the […]

The Dark Tower: Movie Review

After years of languishing in production hell, Roland of Gilead’s (Idris Elba) big-screen pursuit of the man in black (Matthew McConaughey) has arrived. The Dark Tower might not be the movie fans have been waiting for, but it’s the one they’ll get. It took Stephen King over 20 years to complete the seven-book series spawned […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

Logan Movie Review

The X-Men universe is one that has lots to offer, and the best use of that has come to fruition in the final chapter of the Wolverine trilogy, Logan. In Hugh Jackman’s 10th incarnation of the tortured and seemingly immortal character, he is broken down even more than we’ve ever seen. Director James Mangold, who […]

Moana: Movie Review

Moana is one of my most anticipated movies of the year, back since the unveiling of the new princess last fall. Disney’s latest addition, put together by a team of directors including Ron Clements and John Musker, who’ve brought us some of my favorite films like Aladdin and Princess and the Frog, adds another instant-classic […]

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 […]
