Onward

Last weekend I had the chance to see a pre-screening of Disney Pixar’s fantasy adventure, Onward. I love nearly all of Pixar’s incredible catalog of films, but there is just something about a Pixar original film that sets it apart from other studios. As the studio’s previous two films were sequels, Onward is Pixar’s first…

The Gentlemen

They just don’t make movies like The Gentlemen very often anymore. It marks Guy Ritchie’s return to the R-rated universe after directing more family-friendly films such as Aladdin, King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, The Man from U.N.C.L.E., and Sherlock Holmes in recent years. While many people have different opinions about his recent films, most…

1917

Director Sam Mendes jumped back in the directors’ chair for the first time since taking on the previous two bond movies of Skyfall and Spectre. The former of those two movies is phenomenal while that latter left a bit more to be desired out of the beloved action star 007. As a result, Mendes decided…

Doolittle

When I first saw a trailer for Doolittle, I saw what looked like a hilarious action-packed adventure feature the acting talents of the amazing Robert Downey Jr. and a great cast of voices. Unfortunately, I don’t think I’ve ever seen a movie that was more misrepresented by its trailer than this one. Doolittle is directed…

Weathering With You

Weathering With You is Makoto Shinkai’s first film since his 2017 hit Your Name, which I still need to see. It tells the story of a 16-year-old runaway named Hodaka as he meets and falls in love with a special girl named Hina. They live in Tokyo during a season of constant rainfall. Hina is…

Spies in Disguise

Spies in Disguise is the latest movie by the newest Disney-owned animation studio, Blue Sky Studios. This movie pits the world’s best spy in a battle against a criminal mastermind with a twist, the spy is a pigeon. Will Smith and Tom Holland partner up in this one and lend their voices to the main characters….

Jumanji: The Next Level

Jumanji: The Next Level is the sequel to the 2017 sequel that is actually less like a sequel and more like a remake of Robin William’s 1995 movie titled Jumanji. Except, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle isn’t really a remake at all, but more of a reboot that is loosely inspired from the 1995 movie but…

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

42 years and 11 theatrical releases later, the Skywalker saga has come to a close. Hopefully, by this point, most of you have had a chance to see the latest and final installment in the Star Wars saga. I’ve found it nearly impossible over the years to review Star Wars movies without spoilers so I’m…

Frozen 2

In 2013, Frozen took the world by snowstorm and proved that love can thaw even the coldest of hearts, my own. It introduced an incredible ensemble of lovable characters in an action-packed film with plenty of drama, humor, and heartwarming moments. For the first time in what seems like forever, all of those characters are…

Joker

What’s up readers? It’s been a while! It’s been two months since I have watched/reviewed a movie and that is the longest hiatus I have had between movies since the inception of this blog. It’s been a good break though, as it gave me time to fully invest in the beginning stages of my new…

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Esteemed director Quentin Tarantino is back with his 9th film, counting Kill Bill as one film, to hit the big screen since he burst onto the scene with Reservoir Dogs in 1992. I have never truly understood Tarantino or the way he does movies. In fact, some of his most popular movies are titles that I just…

The Lion King

When The Lion King came out in 1994 it quickly took the world by storm. It was just the heartwarming story that grabbed the attention of its viewers, but also the incredibly innovative animation for the time. It blended classic hand-drawn animation with 3D animation beautifully and for that reason and others, it was extremely successful in…
