  • Deadpool: Breaking the Fourth Wall on the Big Screen

    Deadpool had a lot to live up to.  If you want to do a movie for a comic book character like Deadpool, you have to do it really really well, and Ryan Reynolds knew this and completely respected it. He fought so hard for this movie and for Deadpool to be done well.  And let […]


  • Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, Oh My!

    I had absolutely no expectations going into Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and that’s probably the best way to see a movie.

    I loved Krampus. Sure, it isn’t an artistic masterpiece, but it is loads of fun, and will probably become a staple for me in my future Christmas movie rotation. Yes, it was that good. Between the lush Christmas decor, the terrifying elves, and the hilarious comic relief, I had a huge grin on my face […]

    When I was in college I told myself that I didn’t have time to get attached to any more series after Harry Potter.
