‘Deadpool’ (2016) Review

Deadpool (2016) Review: Stupid Good. This movie shouldn’t exist. It just shouldn’t. It’s based off a character whose cinematic debut was in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, one of the worst reviewed comic book movies of all time. Typically not a good resume, but when you couple that with the fact that

‘The Big Short’ (2015) Review

The Big Short (2015) Review: Honest Con When it comes to Biopics, the underlying conceit is, because it’s a true story, that makes it matter more. There’s a genuine atmosphere that comes with them that makes audiences all the more invested in the narrative. All the work that a piece of fiction

‘Kung Fu Panda 3’ (2016) Review

Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016) Review: Third Time’s A-Charming When it comes to trilogies, the third film is usually the worst one. It’s touted as the satisfying finale to the epic saga of the films before it, but it never lives up to those resolutory expectations. Instead what you get

‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ (2015) Review

Star Wars:The Force Awakens (2015) Review: A NEW New Hope I’m not a huge Star Wars fan, I’ll start out with that. I watched the movies when I was younger, it didn’t really register with me the same way something like Terminator or Spider-Man did. I thought lightsabers were cool

‘Creed’ (2015) Review

Creed (2015) Review:Rocky Episode VII In my review for Southpaw, I mentioned how the sports movie, and more specifically the boxing movie, is a rarity in film in that, rather than evolve from the tropes and cliches it’s known for, it revels in it. Audiences even find it a travesty if the

‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2’

Hunger Games: Mockingjay (2015) : Fickle Finale Another one bites the dust. Yet another YA novel franchise reaches its ultimate conclusion. I say ultimate because technically this film had an ending to its ending. Yes this is another adaptation that took it upon itself to split the final part of its saga into two

‘Steve Jobs’ (2015) Review

Steve Jobs (2015) Review: Sorkin Overload Every great filmmaker has a signature style to identify them. They might dabble between different genres and mediums, but at the core of it, the audience is able to say “That felt like one of theirs”. Some are easier to pick up on than

‘Spectre’ (2015) Review

Spectre (2015) Review:James Bland James Bond films are somewhat event cinema. With a history that dates back to 1962, the series has developed success both critically and commercially, and the following that comes with it. More than that, the series has developed to the point where it has essentially become

‘Goosebumps’ (2015) Review

Goosebumps (2015) Review: Go Read A Book The films we see today are usually based on some other medium; whether it be comics, a TV show or based on the novel Push by Sapphire. Regardless, these films are the ones that get put under the closest scrutiny as fans of

‘Bridge Of Spies’ (2015) Review

Bridge Of Spies (2015) Review: I Spy A Damn Good Movie How long should a movie career last? The best filmmakers typically, after a long enough run in hollywood, build a quality body of work that people revere. The trouble is, after too long, filmmakers tend to lose their resolve.
