Civil War Logo

“Victory at the expense of the innocent is no victory at all.” The Marvel Cinematic Universe is an unprecedented series of stories. Civil War is the thirteenth film in eight years, and it has a quadruple responsibility: it must continue the story of the last Captain America solo film, The Winter Soldier; it must follow up on the  [ Read More ]

republique

390-H, or Hope, as she prefers to be called, lives in a totalitarian state, sheltered from the rest of the world. The leader of the colony is worshiped as a God, and he censors the local network, banning and censoring books which he deems unsuitable for his utopia. On the eve of the mysterious “arrival,”  [ Read More ]

“This is my world. You are my world.” I wanted to believe in Batman v Superman. Zack Snyder is a capable director, and Ben Affleck brought in Chris Terrio to rewrite David Goyer’s script. The budget was there, and fans have been waiting for a big-screen showdown between Superman and The Bat for decades. Man  [ Read More ]

“Let’s Dance. And by dance, I mean, try to kill each other.” Ryan Reynolds is channeling his inner Vin Diesel. Vin has some kind of magic potion which lets him make whatever movie he wants just by thinking of it. Seven Fast & Furious movies? That’s all Vin. A Riddick sequel nobody expected or even  [ Read More ]

“Black Man, White Hell.” 70 Millimeter. Super Panavision. Cinerama. Overture. Intermission. Quentin Tarantino has always made clear his love of old-school cinema viewing, but never has he stepped forward as far as he does for his new film, The Hateful Eight. Unfortunately, this time around, QT’s manifestations of the classic cinema experience come across as  [ Read More ]

“Luke Skywalker?” “I thought he was a myth.” It’s been a long time coming… Like, a really long time. Star Wars never really disappeared, from the Expanded Universe and the prequels, to The Clone Wars and Rebels, but fans have been waiting for a true cinematic sequel since the credits rolled on 1983’s Return of  [ Read More ]

Spectre – Review

“The Dead Are Alive” Bond fans have been awaiting the return of Spectre for over forty years. Since last making their appearance in 1971’s abysmal Diamonds Are Forever (the first genuinely bad outing), Ernst Stavro Blofeld and his cronies were forbidden (for ridiculous legal reasons) from appearing in the 007 film series, leading to rewrites  [ Read More ]

Review – Pan

pan2

“Home isn’t where you’re from; it’s where you make it.” Pan begins with a CGI starscape and a narration promising that “this isn’t the story you’ve heard before.” This statement is sort-of true. While it’s a prequel featuring the introduction of Peter into Neverland and an unlikely friendship with the future captain, Hook, the story  [ Read More ]

Prepare to miss these guys I normally never feature any spoilers in my reviews, but seeing how thinly written this film is, some may be unavoidable. So, minor spoiler alert, for those who are wary of such things. — Fantastic 4 (Fant4stic?), Josh Trank’s attempt to leverage the success of his low-budget superhero masterpiece Chronicle  [ Read More ]

“I want you to break into a place and steal some shit.” After some well-documented behind-the-scenes drama and well over a decade in development, Ant-Man is finally upon us, with Peyton Reed filling the large and quirky shoes of Edgar Wright, who died tragically before filming began… At least, I think that’s what happened, right?  [ Read More ]

“We need more teeth.” Jurassic Park is one of the seminal action-adventure blockbusters of all time. It ushered in a new era in digital effects, featured some of the greatest monster mayhem ever filmed, and introduced us to Mr. DNA. Even after two polarizing sequels, the love for the brand hasn’t diminished at all, and  [ Read More ]

Review – Entourage

“When one vagina closes, another one opens.” In a version of Tinseltown not-too-far removed from real life, Vincent Chase is the Hollywood dreamboat who led Aquaman to box-office glory (good luck, Jason Momoa), suffered the embarrassment of the straight-to-video Medellin, and lived the hard-partying movie-star lifestyle to its fullest. Each season of the show, Entourage,  [ Read More ]

“Everyone creates the thing they dread.” Tony Stark, you big jerk! You’ve doomed us all! The ego-driven industrialist has finally screwed up big-time with his latest invention, Ultron. The artificial intelligence, which should have been an agent of global protection, immediately deduces that the best way to accomplish his mission is with the extinction of  [ Read More ]

Who’s Next? The next ‘generation’ of Mortal Kombat, in multiple definitions of the word, is upon us. Packed with buckets of blood, severed limbs, and a continuation of the best soap opera in the genre, Mortal Kombat X simply kicks ass. All the ass.

“Dominic Toretto. You don’t know me. But you’re about to.” In the cutthroat world of Hollywood movie-making, there are not many franchises which can limp their way to seven or more entries, and even fewer which can inspire one to issue a statement as seemingly ridiculous as the one I am about to make: Furious  [ Read More ]

“I love dogs.”   The Wachowskis have unlimited chances. The way I see it, they made The Matrix, and thus can do whatever they want, forever. Speed Racer was ahead of its time and Cloud Atlas was too esoteric to ever stand a chance, but Andy and Lana Wachowski are back at bat to take  [ Read More ]

“I don’t make love. I fuck. Hard.” After months of casting shake-ups, on-set drama, and fevered anticipation, Fifty Shades is finally upon us, and it doesn’t totally suck. It kind of sucks, but not totally. And that wasn’t supposed to be a fellatio joke, but I suppose that’s out of my hands now. Anyway, Fifty  [ Read More ]
