  • Movie Recommendation: Free Fall

    Ever since I watched Sense8 I’ve had this nagging feeling that actor Max Riemelt, who plays Wolfgang on the show, looks like someone who’d be amazing playing a gay character. So, I went through his filmography and fell in love with Free Fall! Free Fall (or Freier Fall) is a German drama-film that was released in 2013. […]


  • Despite Its Faults, I Endorse “Jurassic World”

    When I left the theater last night after seeing Jurassic World, I knew two things: one, I was overwhelmed, and two, I needed to sleep on it before writing this review. I don’t think it’s too far off for me to say that Jurassic Park is my generation’s Star Wars. Yes, you can argue that […]


  • Mockingjay Part II: The First Last Trailer?

    At long last, Hunger Games fans, our wait is over. For months (really, since the first trailer for Mockingjay Part 1 came out), we’ve been cooling our heels and waiting for the announcement of the Part 2 trailer. The trailer itself was a series of nonverbal appearances of characters like the glamorous Effie, punctuated with […]



  • “Tomorrowland” Asks You to Imagine a Better Future

    “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” This quote (Albert Einstein) is engraved on the wall of the plaza when Casey Newton (Britt Robertson) gets her first, brief glimpse at Tomorrowland – a city that exists in an alternate dimension and is meant to house Earth’s best and brightest in hopes of making a better future. Indeed, […]


  • Can You Survive the Scorch? The Scorch Trials Trailer Is Here!

    It’s here! The trailer for The Scorch Trials, the sequel to last year’s The Maze Runner, is here! Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) and his friends – well, the ones who survived the first movie, anyway – are back as they continue to try and figure out what exactly is going on. Why were they put in the Maze […]



  • “Captain America: Civil War” Might As Well Be Called Avengers 3

    Marvel Studios announced today that they had commenced principal photography on Captain America: Civil War, at Pinewood Studios in Atlanta, GA. The production is set to shoot on location in Atlanta, as well as Germany, Puerto Rico, and Iceland, and is due to be released in the US on May 6, 2016. After reviewing the current […]


  • Avengers Age of Ultron: Another Fun but Problematic MCU Installment

    I’ve been counting down the days for Avengers: Age of Ultron for over a year. The trailers were so incredible I didn’t think I’d be able to wait until its May release, but somehow I persevered and waited it out. The new characters, despite not matching their origins in the comics exactly, were incredible and have pumped me up […]


  • Will the Upcoming “X-Men: Apocalypse” Become Another Mutant Mess?

    The cast of X-Men: Apocalypse keeps growing bigger. Even though I’m excited for the upcoming installment in the X-Men film series, I’m also weary because X-Men doesn’t have a good track record of treating characters with the respect they deserve! While X-Men: Days of Future Past was quite an ambitious project by Bryan Singer, he didn’t […]
