[Reviews] Movie Review: Pokémon — Detective Pikachu

| Categories: Entertainment, Film, review | No Comments »

A children’s live-action comedy-mystery starring a talking mouse with a caffeine addiction, a searing wit that narrowly remains age-appropriate, and a heavy case of amnesia shouldn’t be such a successful combination, but it works well. Pokémon: Detective Pikachu is first and foremost a tech-demonstration movie whose splendid special effects take precedence above story complexity or […]

[Reviews] Movie Review: Avengers – Endgame

| Categories: Comics, Entertainment, Film, review, SideArc | No Comments »

Avengers: Endgame, while remaining worth a watch, is not Marvel’s best work. It’s not the series’ funniest installment, despite devoting a remarkable fraction of its unnecessary running time to jokes and gags; it’s not the most thought-provoking, with story decisions and contrivances that undermine its “move-on” message on multiple occasions; it’s not even the most […]

“Thank you, Stan.” Captain Marvel’s opening montage, a collection of Stan Lee portraits set against the Marvel Studios logo, is a poignant and meaningful dedication to an iconic personality who was partly responsible for giving popular culture a bevy of iconic characters with abilities as diverse as their backgrounds. They’re joined by Carol Danvers, an […]

Despite feeling remarkably familiar for being such a long-awaited sequel, Incredibles 2 adeptly balances exciting action alongside thought-provoking and humorous family relations and is an easy recommendation for viewers seeking heroic adventures that don’t limit themselves to a teenage-and-above audience. Please note: If you or your loved ones have symptoms of epilepsy or photosensitivity, be […]

[Reviews] Movie Review: Solo – A Star Wars Story

Sometimes simpler is better, as Ron Howard's impressive contribution to the series proves.

| Categories: Entertainment, Film, review, SideArc | No Comments »

Han Solo’s origin story is a genuinely fun action movie that recalls the lighthearted tone of the original Star Wars films without blatantly mimicking their structure or leaning too hard on nostalgia. The new characters are fun to watch, the old ones are given genuine reasons to appear instead of simply being thrown in, and […]

Avengers: Infinity War- The Infinity Theory

Or is Infinity War Really a Thanos Quest Adaptation

| Categories: Comics, Entertainment, Film, News | No Comments »

Marvels Avengers: Infinity War is on the horizon, and with its advent records and (hopefully) expectations will be shattered. The culmination of ten years of franchise building, arc wielding, and the establishing of a multi-film myth arc coming together after an impressive and unprecedented eighteen films. Despite the tremendous hype Marvel has done an excellent job keeping a […]

[Reviews] Movie Review: Star Wars—The Last Jedi

An unusual director brings one of the series' best (and most overcrowded) installments to date.

| Categories: Entertainment, Film, review | 14 Comments »

That’s how you move a story forward. I was apprehensive about Rian Johnson directing a major installment in one of Western cinema’s most iconic franchises (I had issues with Looper), but I needn’t have worried—despite sometimes packing in more stories and ideas than it can give careful attention to, The Last Jedi solidly improves on […]

[Reviews] Movie Review: Wonder Woman

This long-awaited asset to its genre honors a superhero icon.

I used to want to save the world, Diana Prince(ss of Themyscira) utters as her film begins. She hails from the land of the Amazons, an secluded, all-female society with ties to Greek mythology itself; much of her early life consists of training to one day defend that society, even as her people neither celebrate […]
