Incredibles 2: I Wish Marvel Could Make Superhero Movies Like This (Review)

Incredibles 2: I Wish Marvel Could Make Superhero Movies Like This (Review)

Strange, at the beginning of the movie, the voice actors thanked us for watching.  Well technically they thanked us for waiting, but it’s the same thing. Usually that’s the kiss of death for a film but here it didn’t make a difference.   Even with this bad omen, it would have been hard for Pixar to ruin Incredibles 2. I love me some Brad Bird – he was ‘Miscellaneous Crew’ of my favorite Pixar movies, including Monsters University and Inside Out.  The man knows his stuff. Of course Incredibles 2 is fantastic.

Incredibles 2 is The Family Reunion You’ve Been Waiting For (Review)

Incredibles 2 is The Family Reunion You’ve Been Waiting For (Review)

If there’s one sequel audiences have been clamoring for years, it’s one for 2004’s The Incredibles. Regarded as one of Pixar’s best films, it was met with high praise for its animation, story, and cast of memorable superheroes; it also happened to come out before the current, golden age of film superheroes. Fast forward 14 years (and the release of a behemoth of superhero movies) and the Incredibles are back in action. With a wait this long and anticipation growing with every passing year, the expectations for director Brad Bird and company to deliver another memorable animated film about everyone’s favorite superhero family were astronomically high. Thankfully however, Incredibles 2 meets expectations and is almost on par with its predecessor, becoming one of the best sequels, both animated and superhero, to come out in recent memory.

Hereditary is Brilliant & Deliberate With its Slow Crushing Suspense (Review)

Hereditary is Brilliant & Deliberate With its Slow Crushing Suspense (Review)

This week I saw Hereditary, a new horror film that I’d heard very good things about.  It had been compared to The Witch (one of my very favorite horror films) and was supposed to be this decade’s The Exorcist.  The trailer didn’t make Hereditary look like much but with endorsements like these, how could I resist?

Hereditary Inflicts Emotional Terror and Cements Itself as an Instant Horror Classic (Review)

Hereditary Inflicts Emotional Terror and Cements Itself as an Instant Horror Classic (Review)

It is very easy to see why Hereditary had an incredible amount of buzz after this year’s Sundance. New director Ari Aster comes onto the scene and has one of the most confident horror visions and well-crafted screenplays EVER. Not just in the past 10 years, but of all time. Everything you’ve been hearing about Hereditary being a modern-day “Exorcist” is true. Not only is it a horror film, but in some ways it’s a dramatic look at the evils we inherit from our family. Believe the hype. Read more

Hotel Artemis is Fun, But Never Takes The Step Towards Greatness (Review)

Hotel Artemis is Fun, But Never Takes The Step Towards Greatness (Review)

Sometimes you go see a movie that is entertaining, but the entire time you’re watching it you just know that you’ll forget about it in a few days. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but that movie usually falls into the “I’d watch it if it was on Netflix” category. Hotel Artemis is 100% that movie. There are several aspects of it that are enjoyable and fun, but in the end the movie is just kind of…. there. Read more

Action Point Looks Like it Was More Fun to Make Than it Was to Watch (Review)

Action Point Looks Like it Was More Fun to Make Than it Was to Watch (Review)

I wasn’t paying attention when I saw the trailers for Action Point.  If I had, I would have seen that it was made by Johnny Knoxville, co-creator and star of Jackass and that might have helped me make a more informed decision.  But I missed that and really didn’t want to see Adrift (it looked both boring and stressful) so I thought maybe Action Point might be a little like Dazed and Confused or Little Miss Sunshine or something.  I don’t know. If it strikes you as odd that I’m justifying my movie choice in the opening paragraph of my review (like maybe that’s a really bad sign) you are correct. I didn’t like it. Read more
