  • W.C.K.D. Is Good; “The Scorch Trials” Is Better

    We last left our intrepid heroes as they were seemingly rescued, in spectacular fashion, from the nightmarish maze in which they had been imprisoned. The Scorch Trials picks up exactly where The Maze Runner ended, with the survivors being airlifted to safety in the form of a gigantic compound full of suspicious people, as well as a whole […]



  • AIR: A “Quiet Thriller”

    As a big fan of both Red Dead Redemption and The Walking Dead, I was excited to see AIR; after all, it was directed by Christian Cantamessa (best known for his work on RDR) and produced by Robert Kirkman (writer of the TWD comics). Not to mention the fact that AIR stars Norman Reedus, who is […]


  • “Fantastic Four” Movie Review: Nothing Fantastic About It!

    I didn’t intend to see the new Fantastic Four film, but then the negative reviews started flooding in, and I was intrigued to see for myself why the film was being deemed awful.

After […]

  • 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 […]



  • “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, […]
