Ghostbusters Review: Give it a chance, seriously

The internet basically exploded when word came along that Ghostbusters was getting rebooted. Not only was a beloved movie getting the reboot treatment, but *gasp* the cast was to be comprised of… women! If hearing that news is the worst thing that happens to you in your day, then to be honest you really have no … Read more

Batman v Superman Review: I Saw It So You Don’t Have To

Batman v Superman review

Movies based on comic books have come a long way in the last few years. What at one point even in recent memory would have been a low-budget, cheesy action film has recently transformed into something with huge mass-market appeal and stars lining up to be a part of the production, reaching both commercial and … Read more

Straight Outta Compton Review: The Rise And Fall Of N.W.A.

If you grew up in the mid- to late-80’s and early 90’s, there’s no doubt you at least heard of N.W.A., Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, and the likes. Their brand of so called “reality rap” started to raise awareness of social issues with the harsh lyrics, while at the same time causing more than its … Read more

Minions Review: BANANAAAAAAAAAAS!

The world was first introduced to the love-em or hate-em Minions in Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me back in 2010, and they returned in Despicable Me 2 a few years later in 2013. Now, the Minions have their own movie and we check it out in our Minions review! The Minions have existed long before Gru and the events in Despicable … Read more

Avengers: Age of Ultron Review (With Spoilers): You Have Gone And Done It Again, Marvel

After much anticipation and hype, Avengers: Age of Ultron has finally been released and consumed by yours truly. A sequel of epic proportions, overall I loved the movie and thought it was a fantastic compliment to the series of Marvel movies leading up to it. There were a few minor things that I didn’t absolutely … Read more

Furious 7 Review: A Fitting Send-Off For Paul Walker

The Fast & Furious movies have always been about three things – fast cars, furious action, and most importantly family. The latter has never been more important to the franchise until now. I had a chance to finally see the latest installment in the franchise and take a look at how the death of Paul Walker … Read more

Random From Redbox Review: Victor And The Secret Of Crocodile Mansion

So, I’m a fan of potentially terrible movies. This does not mean that I love watching movies that are bad. Bad movies are just that: bad. They don’t tend to be enjoyable and it is usually tough to pull out anything of worth from the experience, but movies that are bad in a ridiculous, I-can’t-believe-someone-actually-made-this way … Read more

Jupiter Ascending Review: Lukewarm Sci-Fi Soup

Preparing for this Jupiter Ascending review, it didn’t seem possible that The Wachowskis – who brought Cloud Atlas and the beloved Matrix to cinemas – could possibly make a mess of a science fiction premise as interesting as a race of aliens from another planet coming to harvest humans. Unfortunately, the directorial duo tanked hard left into the muck of the young … Read more

American Sniper Review: One Man's Struggle Between Duty And Family

After a limited release, American Sniper finally opened worldwide in theatres this weekend.

Into The Woods Review: The Woods Are Just Trees

Into the Woods  is the second big screen adaptation of a Stephen Sondheim production in recent movie history. Directed by Rob Marshall, it takes us on a journey to a colorful landscape that features many characters who seem almost familiar. But while these fairy-tales have many familiar aspects due to their cleaned up Disney versions, … Read more

The Interview Review: A Self-Aware Adventure In North Korea

For all the controversy it has stirred up, The Interview is almost completely void of biting social commentary or satire. Instead, it’s almost two solid hours of laughs and a refreshing level of self-awareness that other similar movies completely miss the point on. Obviously it’s worth saying that if you have seen a movie with Seth Rogen … Read more

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies Review: Tiny Hobbit Bits

Peter Jackson’s swan song of Middle Earth comes in the form of the glacially paced, convoluted, yet beautifully shot The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. While I never had the chance to formally review them, I’ve always been easier on The Hobbit trilogy than most. They tend to be a little stretched out and it’s obvious the source material … Read more

Disney In Review: Don’t Look Under The Bed

Disney In Review has proven to be an interesting source of writing material for me. So far, we’ve dealt with a post-divorce identity crisis in Mom’s Got a Date With a Vampire, crippling mother issues in Smart House, and the plea to not turn your passion into a career in Brink! This week, I took … Read more

Interstellar Review: Shoots For The Stars And Just Barely Misses

While not wholly original in the story it tells or even how it tells it, the scientific detail and craftsmanship within Interstellar is truly a site to behold. The film is a lengthy one at nearly three hours of screen time, but it spends nearly every second well as it balances between an Earth on the … Read more

Disney In Review: Mom’s Got A Date With A Vampire

I used to love the Disney Channel original movies. They were fun, funny, entertaining, and also managed to weave life lessons into their fairly simplistic plots. I decided to rewatch some of my favorites from when I was a kid and see if they held up to the memories I had of them back when … Read more

Big Hero 6 Review: A Colorful Adventure In A Pale Sea Of Macabre Superhero Movies

The origins of Big Hero 6 come from the Marvel comic of the same name. First appearing alongside the Canadian superhero team Alpha Flight in the Marvel series, they eventually flourished into their own comic adding X-Men familiars “Silver Samurai” and “Sunfire” (neither of whom appear in Big Hero 6 as their movie rights belong … Read more

Sex Tape Review: Marriage, Sex, and the Cloud

Just what do you do when you’ve recorded yourself having sex with your wife, only to find out it backed up to the cloud and replicated across old iPads you’d given away to friends? Jason Segel and Cameron Diaz find out in Sex Tape. Segel and Diaz star as Jay and Annie, a couple who find … Read more

Mudbloods Review: Taking A Serious Look Into The World Of Real-Life Quidditch

From the very first scene, Mudbloods does not hide the fact that is a documentary about the misfits behind the real-life incarnation of Quidditch just as much as the sport itself. Focusing primarily on the team based out of UCLA and surrounding schools, the 82-minute film delves into the growing world of taking a sport that originated in the Harry Potter books … Read more
