Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2: Lovable Characters Help Propel Robust Sequel (Review)

Three years after coming out of left field and becoming everyone’s favorite group of superheroes overnight, the A-holes of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) are back in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The first entries in these superhero outings from Marvel Studios are usually “fairly good.” But that was not the case with 2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy, which is arguably one of the very best movies to date in the MCU. So, going into Vol. 2, the expectations are fairly high. Vol. 2 hits all the right notes as a sequel; it’s bigger in every aspect – from scope to characters and action. Bigger can be better in many cases, but Vol. 2’s plot keeps those bigger things rather slender and rangy at times. But still, director James Gunn’s usage of these characters we’ve all come to know and love help propel this robust, entertaining sequel.

Fate of the Furious: Latest Entry Shifts the Franchise into Neutral [Review]

It’s hard not to watch The Fate of the Furious and think about the void left by Paul Walker, who played one of the two main characters in the Fast & Furious franchise until his tragic death in 2013. Walker’s character, Brian O’Conner, was given a proper sendoff in Furious 7, which paid great tribute to the beloved actor and his place in the NOS-infused series. After seeing Furious 7, I figured this was not only a near-perfect way to end the story of Walker’s character, but also to end the franchise with the remaining characters in play. But being that the franchise continues to make money, another sequel was inevitable. Fast forward three years from Furious 7 and we now have The Fate of the Furious. While the latest entry offers a number of impressive, physics-defying action sequences and some good laughs, as a whole, none of it pushes the franchise either forward or in reverse, making The Fate of the Furious just “okay.”

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