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.

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]

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

Crimson Peak: A Stunningly Beautiful Gothic Love Story [Review]

Crimson Peak felt like a guilty pleasure for me.  I couldn’t tell if it was good or bad because I’m a sucker for Victorian Era stuff.  I loved this film since I first saw the trailer for it; actually seeing it was just confirmation.  But if you like the trailer, you’ll love the movie.  It is exactly as advertised.
