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…

Spider-Man: Far From Home

Not long after the events of Avengers: Endgame, Peter Parker is back in school and preparing to go on a trip to Europe where he plans to share his feelings to the girl he likes. At this point, people are still trying to come to grips with how to move on from the events of the snap…

Toy Story 4

Leading up to the release of Toy Story 4 all I consistently heard was that people didn’t really want another sequel. Many friends approached me and said “I am not actually that excited for Toy Story 4. They ended the franchise so perfectly in the last movie.” Though I think many of those people thought they were contradicting…

Aladdin

With the original Aladdin (1992) being probably my favorite animated movie of all-time, you can imagine that I have been anticipating this movie for a while. The thing is, I really didn’t have incredibly high expectations. I was skeptical that they would be able to tell this iconic tale in the same kind of playful and fun…

Detective Pikachu

I was one of those kids who wasn’t allowed to watch/play Pokemon growing up, so I have virtually no knowledge of all of the types of Pokemon or what they do. That definitely takes me outside of the target demographic for this movie, as it became clear that Detective Pikachu is primarily a nostalgia piece. However, as…

Avengers: Endgame

Hey everyone! A lot has happened in the past couple of weeks. For one, the biggest movie of the decade has just finished its second weekend and has already passed Titanic to become the second highest grossing film of all-time(as I predicted in my WTE article) and is very likely to give Avatar a scare…

Shazam!

I didn’t really grow up with Shazam but was he sounded interesting enough so I decided to read into his origins a little bit. It turns out he was first created in 1939 by Fawcett Publications in lieu of success that National Comics, later renamed Detective Comics or DC, was having with Batman and Superman….

Captain Marvel

The stage is now all set in the MCU for the big conclusion that is Avengers: Endgame that will be coming out April 26th. Captain Marvel has been officially introduced and it is clear how big of a role she is going to play in the upcoming blockbuster. I have been a bit nervous about the movie for a…

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World

Everyone who reads my blog knows I am a Disney fanatic. The stories they tell never fail to tug and the heartstrings and leave you feeling a sense of pure joy and happiness.   Animation has never had the same kind of effect on me with the Shrek or Kung Fu Panda franchises, but the How to Train Your Dragon movies have…

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part

The LEGO Movie hit theaters in 2014 and surprised many with its solid box office turnout of close to $500M on a budget of just $80M. This movie’s success opened the door for Warner Brothers Studios to commit to a larger slate of LEGO-based movies over the past few years. The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part is directed…
