mother! – Film Review

Darren Aronofsky as a filmmaker loves to get extremely creative with his films and to provide the audience with something to talk about when leaving the theater. With this film he really gets to dive into some great themes that I think don’t get addressed enough in popular culture. The performances by Jennifer Lawrence and […]

Iron Man 3 – Film Review

Iron Man 3 – Film Review

This entry has one of the MCU has a lot of controversial thoughts behind its status of being a good film. I think that this entry has a very strong Shane Black influence that pulls it out of being a strong Marvel film. I think what Shane was going for was more of a stand […]

Ghost in the Shell (2017) – Film Review

Though there were some stunning visuals and a great soundtrack the story had one major flaw that hurt my enjoyment of the film. The twist in the film — I don’t understand the decisions not to edit that part to make the overall tone deafness of the writers less apparent, as well to all of […]

Marvel’s The Avengers – Film Review

Marvel’s The Avengers – Film Review

This film systematically changed Hollywood going forward. The thought of making a film series that has continuity beyond a trilogy and that interviews characters in and out of different franchise upon having team up films was not thought of as a working product. Since 2008 in “Iron Man,” the post credit sequence of Nick Fury […]

Captain America: The First Avenger – Film Review

Captain America: The First Avenger – Film Review

This entry in the MCU is a period piece. I would say it is an average film that is in the library of Marvel films. The theatrical villain of Red Skull played by Hugo Weaving was great. They did something with him as a character to establish that he was the villain and that he […]

Thor – Film Review

Thor – Film Review

With the Thor franchise, they haven’t been able to capture the right tone yet. This entry is focused on a more “Lord of the Rings” style film which is grand in scope including Kings and royalty. To me this entry so far is the best. The chemistry between Hemsworth and Portman is strong. It’s just […]

Arrival – Film Review

When it comes to alien invasion movies you tend to see lots of explosions, action and CGI every frame of the picture. With this film, yes there is CGI, yes there is explosions but there is no action. The focus of the film is about making you think based on the experience of the picture […]

Star Trek Beyond – Film Review

Star Trek Beyond – Film Review

Star Trek is a franchise that doesn’t have the attention as much as Star Wars in the age where the franchise is back in action. This film entry is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Star Trek franchise, but also unfortunately remembering Leonard Nimoy and Anton Yelchin who have passed away. This picture feels like […]

Iron Man 2 – Film Review

Iron Man 2 – Film Review

One of the strengths of this film is continuing the flair from the first “Iron Man.” Though this film is bogged down with having to build up the Marvel Cinematic Universe more it does set up a lot of characters including Black Widow, Nick Fury and War Machine (Rhodey). Those characters are very well utilized […]

Iron Man – Film Review

Iron Man – Film Review

The first Iron Man movie where the Marvel Cinematic Universe all began was such a ground breaking moment in film history. From its use of the Post-Credit Sequence, to the ballsiness to have its main hero reveal his secret identity right out of the gate is something you don’t see in comic book movie films. […]
