I love Jennifer Garner. Well, I more accurately, I have been in love with Jennifer Garner since ALIAS. Well, since ALIAS seasons 1-3… when season 4 aired… yea, that starts a whole other conversation, and we don’t have time to go down that rabbit hole. Continue reading REVIEW: ‘Peppermint’
The Spider-Man franchise has definitely been hit-miss since Sony Pictures got the license. Thankfully SPIDER-MAN HOMECOMING was delightful… but even still, wasn’t sure what to make of INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE when trailers first broke. Don’t get me wrong, the trailers looked amazing, but with the franchise’s fractured history under Sony, definitely was a little hesitant to get my hopes up. Continue reading REVIEW: ‘SPIDER-MAN: INTO THE SPIDER-VERSE’
Man, I haven’t really been a Nic Cage fan since the ‘90s. But when the trailer for MANDY was released… Well, one, NO IDEA what I just watched and two, I thought something I didn’t think I would think since the ‘90s, Nic Cage you have my attention.
So I’m sure you’ve heard the rumors by now the Lucasfilms has decided to put any future STAR WARS spin-off movies on-hold. Supposedly due to the lackluster box-office for SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY.
So it always seems like a rule with genre movies, that for a sequel, you go BIGGER than the first. And DEADPOOL 2 delivers BIG in the most glorious fashion!
Okay, let’s be honest, you’re gonna see this movie no matter what I say. And really, I would be the same way if I were in your shoes. Haha. BUT let me see if I can’t give you a spoiler-free review on AVENGERS | INFINITY WAR…
It’s funny, I don’t think I would regard myself as part of a specific political party. But I most definitely vote for a party/candidate that is in most in-line with my concerns and beliefs. It just happens to be Democrat more often than not.
That said, this current administration is scary, horrifying and dangerous. And I definitely look to comedians for more insight into the news. I know that sounds absolutely insane. But I would definitely argue that shows like THE DAILY SHOW, among others, do more research than national & local news outlets.
Which brings me to John Oliver.
You know, I really hate the term, “heady”, when describing something a little more substantive than other, in this case, movies. But, for lack of a better term, ANNIHILATION is definitely a “heady” sci-fi movie. Of course, I wouldn’t expect anything less from writer/director Alex Garland.
But here’s the thing, I’ve always felt like I’ve been pretty good with coming away with something from something like a heady movie. Especially with Garland’s work. Whether it be his previous directing effort, EX MACHINA, or the copious amounts of screenplays he’s written. Safe to say I’m definitely a fan of the creative.
Let’s be honest, if you’re a fan of Marvel movies, or comics in general, chances are you’ve already seen this movie. And, again, let’s be honest, you know you LOVED IT! I know I definitely did.
But this review is more for the movie fans who might consider comic book movies not necessarily their thing. And to them, I would offer, this is definitely worth going to the theatre to see!
I try to stay away from reviews about anything entertainment that I’m a fan of. Be it comics, TV, movies, whatever. If marketing does it’s job, and sparks an interest, I’d like to find out for myself. But headlines are hard to avoid. And every now and again, the click bait does it’s job, and I read a review or two.
Such was the case with Vanity Fair and JUSTICE LEAGUE.
