  • Ten Minutes with Djimon Hounsou

    This past Sunday I was presented with the incredible opportunity to conduct a short phone interview with two-time Oscar nominee Djimon Hounsou. He’s currently promoting the Robert Kirkman film AIR, which also stars Norman Reedus and will be released later this week (August 14th). I was also able to watch the film, so stay tuned […]


  • “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. I thought that perhaps critics were overreacting and I might see something positive. Unfortunately, the moment the main characters came on screen […]


  • Lionsgate is making a ‘Naruto’ live-action film and I am worried!

    Lionsgate is ready to bring Naruto into the realm of live-action films and I am more than just concerned. Hollywood doesn’t have a good track record when it comes to adapting manga/anime series to the bid screen and there’s a huge possibility it will be another failure. Lionsgate presented successful franchises like The Hunger Games, […]


  • “Paper Towns” Makes a Point…And Misses the Point

    Warning: may contain spoilers for the book/movie. After an epic (a word that has been used so often lately so as to have lost all meaning) night helping Margo (Cara Delevingne) take revenge on all of the people who have wronged her, Q (Nat Wolff) thinks their relationship will shift from friends to more than that. After […]


  • Marvel’s Ant-Man Review

    I like Paul Rudd. I think he’s a great actor, a great comedian, and all around swell guy. Ant-Man is a Paul Rudd movie. Ant-Man is not a Marvel movie, or at least it didn’t feel like one. There’s is nothing wrong with that whatsoever, but I’m at a loss to figure out why Marvel […]


  • 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, […]
