John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is One of The Best Action Movies I’ve Ever Seen (Review)

I didn’t come to the John Wick franchise easily.  The only reason I watched the first one was because someone dragged me to John Wick: Chapter 2 and I loved it so much I had to see everything else in the series.  I fell in love with the world of John Wick, with the wonderful opulence of the Continental and all its weird little rules. John Wick Chapter 2 is far better than the original, but I have to say, John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum blows them both out of the water.  This franchise just keeps getting better and better.

Ant-Man & The Wasp Stings with Fun and Humor Thanks to Evangeline Lilly (Review)

Ant-Man & The Wasp Stings with Fun and Humor Thanks to Evangeline Lilly (Review)

The fact that a superhero movie about a man given a suit that makes him the size of an ant and allows him to control ants made its way to the cineplex three years ago still amazes me. The finished product of Ant-Man was surprising, as it gave us a likeable superhero in Scott Lang (played greatly by Paul Rudd) and something a little different (in a good way) for the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Fast forward three years and now we have its sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp, which is one of the best sequels to follow an MCU superhero’s first solo outing. On par with its predecessor, Ant-Man and the Wasp is another good entry in the MCU, thanks to its small-scale stakes (ha), action, humor, and most importantly Evangeline Lilly, who ultimately takes the reigns of the movie as the Wasp.

John Wick: Chapter Two Brings The House Down in This Bigger, Better Sequel [Review]

In 2017 it’s difficult to make an action movie that feels fun and original.  With franchises like Mission Impossible and Jason Bourne, the formula for a great action movie has been well-established. Grandiose action sequences riddled with a marathon of cuts gave audiences as feeling of pure mayhem drenched action. Read more

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice – The ‘Anti-Hobbit’ A Trilogy Packed into One Movie [Review]

Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice – The ‘Anti-Hobbit’ A Trilogy Packed into One Movie [Review]

I’ve been sick of superhero movies for a while now, hype or no hype.  There’s just been so many.  I remember this happened with vampire movies and also zombie movies – not long after they get popular there’s a giant glut of the things.  Then someone comes along to reinvent it and gets blamed for the whole thing tanking.  The genre is ripe; I bet the Stephanie Meyers of superhero movies is busy making a genre-killer as we speak.  Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is probably not said genre-killer, but it is definitely a warning sign that one is coming.

Hannibal Season 3: The Series Finale Comes to a Blood-soaked & Beautifully Poetic Conclusion [Review]

Hannibal Season 3: The Series Finale Comes to a Blood-soaked & Beautifully Poetic Conclusion [Review]

I know that fans all around were distraught when we learned that Hannibal had been cancelled halfway through season three – but that finale ending though? Bryan Fuller’s serial killer series doesn’t need to march onward because it concluded so beautifully that there’s truly no need. The genius of it, is that every season finale could have really worked as a ‘series’ wrap-up, but season three really took that idea to task.
