After an incredibly long wait…it’s finally here: my next review. Oh, and the sequel to maybe the best Pixar movie. That too.

The Incredibles was a landmark film, one of the best superhero movies ever made (also the best Watchmen and Fantastic Four movie ever made) and after a mere 14-year wait, we finally get a sequel. But, is it any good? Let’s dive in.  Continue reading →

New Movie Review: ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’, 2018

Solo is off to join the ranks of Ant-Man and Superman II where we’ll always wonder what it would’ve been like if the original directors stayed on…

Solo (2018); Directed by Ron Howard, kinda sorta, mostly

Ah, yes, it’s that time of year again, the season of the summer blockbuster. Part of the opening salvo we have Solo, the most recent in the endless barrage of Star Wars that Disney will assault us with until the heat death of the universe. This time we get the Continue reading →

New Movie Review: ‘Avengers: Infinity War’ (2018)

This review is balanced. Perfectly balanced. As all things should be.

This is it. After ten years and eighteen films, we have finally arrived at the culmination of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Every movie, every character, it’s all been leading to this. Was it worth the hype? Worth the wait?  Continue reading →

New Movie Review: ‘A Quiet Place’ (2018)
