Mary Poppins Returns

I may be a little too young to be able to fully appreciate the greatness that is the original Mary Poppins from 1964. Though I have seen it, I admit it has been a long time and I probably should’ve refreshed my memory before watching Mary Poppins Returns. Regardless, when I heard Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda…

Aquaman

The DCEU has not had much success in recent years and there is much uncertainty about which direction the studio will move in for their upcoming movies. Wonder Woman showed a lot of promise but Justice League pretty much did all that it could to take away any positive outlook on the future of the DCEU. That…

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse

Could this be the first year since Rango won the award in 2011 that a non-Disney/Pixar animated wins Best Animated Feature? Of course, there weren’t any Disney/Pixar Films released that year, so you have to go even further back in time to the last time when a non-Disney film beat out Disney movies to win…

Creed II

It’s crazy that it has now been 42 years since the original Rocky movie was released and we have now had 8 movies in the series. I found it interesting that Ryan Coogler (Director of Creed, Black Panther) took a step back on Creed II and just did some of the screenwriting while Stevan Caple…

Ralph Breaks the Internet

Aaaand……exhale. I can’t begin to express to you all how thankful I am that Ralph Breaks the Internet doesn’t suck. When I saw the first trailer I immediately thought it was just going to be a pointless money grab with non-stop pop-culture references and product placement out the hundred acre wood. Turns out, only one of those things…

A Star is Born

I have been a big fan of Bradley Cooper since his duo of unrelated “American Movies” came out in 2013 and 2014 (American Hustle, American Sniper). His latest film A Star is Born is not only a soulful and emotional experience to watch, but it also represents Cooper’s directing debut. Alongside Lady Gaga and Sam Elliott, Cooper takes us…

A Simple Favor

Based on the Darcey Bell Novel, A Simple Favor brings us a Comedy/Mystery like none I have ever seen before. Anna Kendrick plays single mom and enthusiastic vlogger Stephanie Smothers, as she tries to get to the bottom of the disappearance of her best friend Emily Nelson (Blake Lively). The problem is the Emily was a secretive…

Christopher Robin

If you are like me, you probably grew up watching a lot of Winnie the Pooh movies. In fact, there were 17 Winnie the Pooh features released between 1996 and 2010. That happens to be pretty much the timeline of my childhood so naturally when I heard that Christopher Robin was coming out this year, I was…

Mission: Impossible – Fallout

Tom Cruise is back again for the sixth time as Ethan Hunt in Mission: Impossible – Fallout. What is even more interesting is the fact that it is the first time that a director was brought back for a second movie. Christopher McQuarrie directed Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation in 2015 and it was probably the best movie in…

Uncle Drew

From Pepsi commercial to viral YouTube hit, and finally to the big screen Uncle Drew once again laces up the sneakers and attempts to show some young bloods how the game is supposed to be played. Put together by Pepsi Productions and Temple Hill Entertainment, relatively unknown director Charles Stone III put Uncle Drew’s legendary…

Ant-Man and the Wasp

Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly are back in action for Ant-Man and the Wasp. The movie takes place just after the events of Captain America: Civil War and the events of that movie have a lot to do with how this movie plays out. It is once again directed by Peyton Reed and it brings…

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom is the second installment of the of the second trilogy in the Jurassic Park universe. This time the movie sends our favorite character Clair (Bryce Dallas Howard) and Owen (Chris Pratt) back to Isla Nublar to try to save the dinosaurs before a volcano destroys the whole island. I have never…
