Formulaic Captain Marvel Flies High Thanks to Brie Larson (Review)

Formulaic Captain Marvel Flies High Thanks to Brie Larson (Review)

Thanos better watch out in next month’s Avengers: Endgame because the Avengers’ secret weapon is coming: Captain Marvel.

That’s not a spoiler from Captain Marvel, the latest entry in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). For those who saw last year’s Avengers: Infinity War, audiences were teased at movie’s end via a pager that the “most cosmic superhero of all” is on her way. And ever since then, audiences eagerly have been awaiting the female heroine’s big screen debut. Surprisingly, and despite being formulaic, the first female superhero movie in the MCU (only took 11 long years); Captain Marvel is another bonafide entry in the ever-growing superhero movie universe thanks to a likeable lead heroine in Brie Larson, her supporting cast, and some fantastic action sequences and visual effects.

Despite its Cracks, Glass is a Satisfying Conclusion to the Unbreakable Trilogy (Review)

Despite its Cracks, Glass is a Satisfying Conclusion to the Unbreakable Trilogy (Review)

It’s hard to believe that a trilogy from M. Night Shyamalan has come full circle, and that it stemmed from his first movie, Unbreakable. Back then, fans did not view films about vigilantes and villains as the type of movies that would play a pivotal role in the future of Hollywood (unless you made a vigilante movie centered around Batman). But boy have things changed since Bruce Willis’ David Dunn put on the rain slicker and saved the day in Unbreakable. After connecting the universe of Unbreakable with 2017’s Split, Shyamalan is back to give us the conclusion to this story of heroes and villains set in the City of Brotherly Love. While Glass may be the weakest of the Unbreakable trilogy and is certain to create watercooler talk about its twists, it offers a unique spin on the perception of comic book stories. Either way, Glass will satisfy fans of the characters from this trilogy despite its cracked structure.

The Hitman’s Bodyguard is Possibly The Best Action Comedy of The Year (Review)

The Hitman’s Bodyguard is Possibly The Best Action Comedy of The Year (Review)

This week it’s The Hitman’s Bodyguard. There was a bit of hype for this one, seems like I saw the trailer to the Hitman’s Bodyguard before every other movie for two months, regardless of genre.  That could be an overstatement but not by much.  I was pretty sure I’d like this one, Action/Comedy if a forgiving genre.  Even when it’s bad it’s still pretty good.  And this one was pretty good, I laughed so much.   Read more

The Hitman’s Bodyguard: A Few Laughs… But That’s About It (Review)

I went into The Hitman’s Bodyguard and was at least hoping that it would be a guilty pleasure… With Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds, it would have to be decently enjoyable, right? RIGHT?! Wrong. It is pretty bad overall. There are some pretty big laughs, but that is about it. I really wanted to like this one. Read more

Kong: Skull Island – Great action scenes; King Kong is Badass [Review]

Kong: Skull Island – Great action scenes; King Kong is Badass [Review]

I’ve never seen a King Kong film, this was my first taste of the franchise, and I must say I’m fond of him.  I mean I know about the original – King Kong goes to Big City and ends up climbing a building and swatting aircraft with one hand while holding Fay Wray in the other (that might not be right, like I said I haven’t seen it) but now I’m tempted to go back and watch it.  Kong:  Skull Island is really a lot of fun.

Kong: Skull Island – A Rip-Roaring Action Adventure Fit for the King of the Apes [Review]

Kong: Skull Island – A Rip-Roaring Action Adventure Fit for the King of the Apes [Review]

It has been just 12 years since we last saw the King of the Apes in director Peter Jackson’s three-hour epic, King Kong. For what it’s worth, the monster movie about a ginormous gorilla Jackson gave audiences back in 2005 worked great as a dramatic piece. But now, Kong is back, but in an action-oriented reboot connected to Legendary Studios’ monsters universe, which began back in 2014 with the critically praised reboot of Godzilla. Director Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ version of King Kong in Kong: Skull Island results in a thrilling action romp that boasts an all-star cast full of colorful characters that feature their own sense of humor. And on top of that, Kong: Skull Island is also just a fun, movie going experience, watching monsters clash with each other in grand fashion on the big screen. Read more

xXx: Return of Xander Cage – Charming with So Much Energy & Enthusiasm [Review]

xXx: Return of Xander Cage – Charming with So Much Energy & Enthusiasm [Review]

This week it was either Split or xXx and since multiple-personality plots annoy me and I still haven’t quite forgiven M. Night Shyamalan (despite the excellent The Visit, last year) so it had to be xXx: Return of Xander Cage.  I was not optimistic.  The first xXx was 14 years ago and was just a couple years after Pitch Black, my favorite Vin Diesel film.  Could this new instalment measure up to the original and would it be worth watching?   Read more

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children: Beautiful & Nonsensical but Full of Great Moments [Review]

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children: Beautiful & Nonsensical but Full of Great Moments [Review]

This week I went to go see Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children the new movie directed by Tim Burton.  If I’m going to be completely honest, the last movie of Tim Burton’s I 100% liked was The Nightmare Before Christmas and that was only produced by Tim Burton.  I still hold out hope, though, that something will come close to rivaling it, but Miss Peregrine was not that film.  Which is not to say I didn’t like it.  I probably liked Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children much more than it deserves.
