A Quiet Place

From the mind of John Krasinski/ Jim Halpert comes A Quiet Place, a movie about a family that lives in a time of hiding. Aliens that hunt using sound have taken over the surrounding area. This film has been receiving such incredibly high praise that I decided to give it a shot. Did it live up to…

Avengers Infinity War

Avengers Infinity War has only been in theaters for 2 weeks now and it has completely shaken what we thought we knew about the Marvel Cinematic Universe. By this point, I hope that most of you have seen it by now. If you have yet to see the movie, leave this tab open and go do that now….

Ready Player One

Steven Spielberg (a.k.a. The GOAT) is bringing wonder and imagination back to the big screen with the release of Ready Player One. This film is set in 2045 in Columbus, Ohio when the inventor of a virtual world called The Oasis has recently passed away. Before he died, he created a giant Easter egg hunt for all…

Annihilation

Director Alex Garland is back at it with another Sci-fi thriller on the big screen. Annihilation stars Natalie Portman (affectionately known as PadBae) as an ex-military Biologist that goes into the otherworldly phenomena known as “the shimmer”. The problem is that no one who goes into the shimmer ever comes out. This film is a wild ride,…

Black Panther (Spoiler Free)

Ever since Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther was introduced in Captain America: Civil War, I have been waiting in anticipation to get another look at the King of Wakanda on the big screen. The wait came to an end today and the movie didn’t disappoint. Black Panther is the last movie to drop in the MCU before Infinity War comes out…

Hostiles

Hostiles is one of those movies that I really didn’t know a lot about going in. I just knew that I was going to have time for a movie yesterday and that one looked interesting enough. I knew that it had Christian Bale and I knew that it was a western, but I really had no idea…

The Post

The Post is the newest Spielberg film and it stars two legendary actors in Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks. It is about the events that lead up to the exposing of the United States’ cover-up of the state of the Vietnam War. The Washington Post’s decision to publish the information on the matter is essentially what…

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Though this is the second film (the first coming in 1995) that is loosely based the 1981 children’s book “Jumanji”, the films are made by different companies and hardly bear any resemblance to the book. Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle was directed by Jake Kasdan, a fairly underrated director who is most known for producing the TV…

My Top 10 Movies of 2017 + Awards

What year in the movies, huh? From highly anticipated large-scale productions to lower budget films that surprised me, 2017 has development been another great year to be a movie enthusiast. Just like last year, ranking my top 10 movies of the year has been a tough task. I have been constantly changing the order, re-reading my…

The Greatest Showman

As the year in movies is quickly winding down, I am trying to watch all of the movies that I think have potential to make it on my Top 10 list for 2017. Unfortunately, I don’t have a ton of time on my hands so I am going to have to keep this rather brief. The…

Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Spoiler Review)

I have now seen Star Wars: The Last Jedi twice and I think I have all the information that I need to make an accurate review of this film. Hopefully, most people have seen the movie by now but for those of you who have not yet seen, I have left the spoiler-free section and I would…

Coco

Coco is the 19th animated feature film released by Pixar Animated Studios and is directed by Lee Unkrich along with co-director Adrian Molina. When I started to see advertising for this movie about two years ago, I was immediately a little bit nervous. This is because of a similar style of movie that came out in…
