Thor: Ragnarok is Another Predictable Marvel Movie But It’s Still Amazing (Review)

Thor: Ragnarok is Another Predictable Marvel Movie But It’s Still Amazing (Review)

Man, am I ever done with Superhero movies.  I’m not sure when it happened, probably before Spiderman and Wonder Woman, before Guardians of the Galaxy 2; all I know is that superhero movies don’t fill me with girlish delight like they used to.   Still, I was looking forward to it – this was directed by the man who gave us “What We Do In The Shadows” and “Hunt for the Wilderpeople” so I was expecting Thor: Ragnarok to be something amazing.  And it was.  It really was.

The Killing of a Sacred Deer is a Heart Pounding Thriller From The First Shot (Review)

The Killing of a Sacred Deer is a Heart Pounding Thriller From The First Shot (Review)

It’s an incredible time for independent filmmaking.  With production houses like A24 leading the frontline, indie movies are becoming a major force in the festival circuit and showing potential as serious Oscar contenders.  Greek Director Yorgos Lanthimos has displayed great strengths as one of most competent indie filmmakers of recent years.  His 2015 black comedy film “The Lobster” did very well at festivals and even garnered an Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay.  He is back this year with a psychological horror-thriller in the form of The Killing of a Sacred Deer.

Third Time’s the Charm with Comically Fun Thor: Ragnarok (Review)

Third Time’s the Charm with Comically Fun Thor: Ragnarok (Review)

If you ask anyone (like me) who has seen the previous 16 movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), a good number of them will tell you that both Thor movies are among their least favorite. It’s not to say they’re bad, but they’re easily forgettable compared to the other superhero outings we’ve seen from the MCU. But finally, the god of thunder gets his justice with Thor: Ragnarok, a memorable, rickrolling good time that emphasizes the word “comic” for comic book movies. Easily surpassing the previous two Thor outings, Ragnarok’s intrepid attitude and overzealous moments make it not only the best Marvel Studios release of the year, but also arguably the funniest Marvel Studios movie to date. With the latest Thor sure to Ragnarok you like a hurricane, strap yourselves in for a fun time at the theaters this weekend.

Ranking The Entire Saw Franchise in Celebration of Jigsaw

Ranking The Entire Saw Franchise in Celebration of Jigsaw

With Jigsaw hitting theaters this past weekend, the first Saw movie since 2010, it got me thinking on which movies were the best and worst in the franchise. To my surprise, Jigsaw was one of the better Saw films. It may have only been made so the studio could see how many fans were left, but now I’m wondering where they go from here. There is definitely a chance they could make a few more movies, which is shocking because of how convoluted the plot and timeline ultimately got over the last few films. Below is all of the Saw films ranked from worst to best. Read more

South Park The Fractured But Whole is an Amazing Tactical Turn-Based RPG (Review)

South Park The Fractured But Whole is an Amazing Tactical Turn-Based RPG (Review)

South Park The Fractured But Whole was a real roller-coaster for me. The game takes you on a wild journey of interruptions, a time-bending plot and laughs like any other random South Park episode. The thing I have always enjoyed while playing Stick of Truth and The Fractured But Whole is that you always felt like you’re in the show as ‘new kid’ and because of this the games have always turned out better than what I thought they could have been. The graphics are akin to the latest South Park animation style and it’s awesome because they were smoothed out, as well as improved for the highly active game-play for all the super powers you wind up getting to use. The music was intense in the battles and the over-world theme really fit both the day and night atmospheres. Read more

Stranger Things Season 2 is Nostalgic, Scary & Fun; A Great Expansion on The Universe (Review)

Stranger Things Season 2 is Nostalgic, Scary & Fun; A Great Expansion on The Universe (Review)

If you have access to the internet at all, then you know that the highly anticipated sophomore season of Stranger Things is finally on Netflix. Is it worth the wait? Is it better than the first season? With it being Netflix’s hottest and most important new original series, the pressure is definitely on. The Duffer Brothers have nicely expanded on the Stranger Things Universe with this second season, and added more depth to our beloved characters (along with a few new characters). Let’s talk about what worked this season and what didn’t work. There might be some spoilers ahead, so stop reading if you haven’t binged the new season yet. Read more

Suburbicon is Pointless & Uncomfortable Failing to Deliver Anything of Value (Review)

Suburbicon is Pointless & Uncomfortable Failing to Deliver Anything of Value (Review)

It’s funny how much the Galaxy pre-show can inform a review.  Not only do we get trailers, we get to watch people talk about the movies they made.  I’m not sure why, but when I saw George Clooney talking about Suburbicon, I knew it was going to be a stinker.  The low reviews were no surprise.  I wasn’t going to see Suburbicon to see if it was good or not, I was going to see why it was bad.  Maybe I was hoping it turned out, against all expectation, to be awesome.  It wasn’t, I hated it.   The rest of the review is going to be why I hated it.  If you’re planning on seeing this movie, stop right and don’t read any further.  I’m going to spoil everything.   Read more
