Best 4th Movie in a Series (Top 5 Friday)

Look, I know this is a weird topic idea but the only film that’s coming out this weekend is Endgame and I’ve already done Top 5 Marvel, Superhero, Comicbook, etc lists so let’s change it up: the best fourth movie in a series. Since Avengers 4 is here, let’s take a look at what other memorable seriesContinue reading “Best 4th Movie in a Series (Top 5 Friday)”

Avengers: Endgame (Very Vague Movie Review)

Well, my dreams came true last night. After 11 years of nearly-daily Marvel speculation, discussion, reviewing, and day-dreaming, the final chapter of the Infinity Saga is here. Since I’m not a terrible person, this review will be 100% spoiler-free which is only bad for one reason: I can’t talk about anything. Because of that, any details ofContinue reading “Avengers: Endgame (Very Vague Movie Review)”

Shazam! (Movie Review)

In my review of Aquaman, I mentioned that if Shazam! is as good, then for the first time in at least a decade, a Marvel movie is sandwiched by two better DC movies. Consider history to have been made! Shazam! is wonderful in every way. DC has truly succeeded in letting its directors take full control over their movies. What IContinue reading “Shazam! (Movie Review)”

Aquaman (Movie Review)

With a worldwide box office of over 1 Billion dollars, the purpose of a “review” today may seem lost. However, I think it’s important to still look at Aquaman because it means something for DC: a bright future. Following the extremely divisive Batman v Superman, Suicide Squad, and Justice League, this movie had every reason to be a disappointment and aContinue reading “Aquaman (Movie Review)”

You Were Never Really Here (Movie Review)

If I had watched this movie in 2018, it would have been my favorite film of the year. There’s something about this Taken meets The Professional in the style of Drive revenge thriller that made it impossible for me to look away. Was it Lynne Ramsay’s incredible vision? Joaquin Phoenix’s relentless devotion? The charming lens in which we view this depressingContinue reading “You Were Never Really Here (Movie Review)”

Eighth Grade (Movie Review)

This movie is my weekly Amazon Prime Video viewing. Watch it free with a Prime subscription (not sponsored). Secondhand embarrassment is often a crutch of films that want you to feel pity for a character; seeing them go through tough times in public makes you, the viewer, relate to them at least on some level. At theContinue reading “Eighth Grade (Movie Review)”

Annihilation (Movie Review)

Since I’ve been starting to try to review everything I watch/read/play, I’ve noticed myself thinking of what I’ll write as the story progresses. This movie was no different for that new habit, but as the film concluded I suddenly found myself at a loss for words. How do I write about this movie, or anyContinue reading “Annihilation (Movie Review)”

Downsizing (Movie Review)

Being able to stream movies is a blessing; the ability to catch up on films missed, rewatch old classics, or discover new stories is always an exciting part of modern movie watching…in theory. In 2017, one of the holiday movie releases that I was most anticipated was a film called Downsizing from director Alexander Payne (The Descendants,Continue reading “Downsizing (Movie Review)”

Captain Marvel (Movie Review)

Marvel Studios unveils the Ace up its sleeve, finally showing the audience the secret weapon they have to stop Thanos: Captain Marvel. After seeing the film, I find myself resonating most with a phrase I heard earlier this weekend: “It feels like a Phase One movie.” I truly think there is no better way toContinue reading “Captain Marvel (Movie Review)”
