  • Solo Steals the Star Wars Origin Story Show

    After all the drama surrounding the Solo: A Star Wars Story production, I was fully prepared to be disappointed…but then the first reviews started coming out, and most of them were so insanely positive that I was suddenly worried it wouldn’t live up to the hype. The end verdict? It wasn’t at all what I […]


  • After Infinity War: A Ray of Hope for Devastated MCU Fans

    Fans and critics have been calling Avengers: Infinity War the Empire Strikes Back of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. That sounds dramatic, but it may actually be understating the case. MCU fans around the globe are crying into their collective beers after – well, you know what happened. Take heart, friends – the comics and past movies […]


  • Avengers: Infinity War – Yes, They Did That. Now What?

    Avengers: Infinity War is a tough one to review objectively.  It was an emotional gut punch, and I’m going to have a hard time recovering from all of these emotions to gauge the actual quality of the film itself. But if the goal of the film was to devastate us, then it succeeded spectacularly. Read […]


  • I Loved Every Ridiculous Second of Love Simon

    Love Simon is your stereotypical, cookie-cutter romantic comedy with one glaring exception: it’s about two boys.

  • Marvel Cinematic Universe Steps Up Its Game With Black Panther

    Black Panther has managed to do something I never thought possible; it has dethroned Captain America: The Winter Soldier as my favorite movie in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Black Panther is a solid entry to the ever-entwined franchise and a perfect example of how to do a stand-alone film. Read our before commenting. Please do not copy […]


  • ‘The Cloverfield Paradox’ Sets Pattern in SciFi Franchise

    The Cloverfield Paradox essentially dropped out of nowhere.  And it worked. Many fans of the franchise knew another film was in the works and were aware it was scheduled for some time in February, but with no trailers or promotion of any kind my assumption was that it might get pushed back.  I didn’t expect […]


  • Justice for Jenny Lind

    I recently saw The Greatest Showman, the original movie musical loosely based on the life of P.T. Barnum, and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I liked it. The songs were much better than I was expecting (of course, “This Is Me” did just win a Golden Globe), and I really enjoyed all of the […]
