After the record breaking weekend for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings the studio has announced that all remaining movies for 2021 will get a 45-day exclusive theatrical window. That includes Eternals, West Side Story, The King’s Man, Ron’s Gon...[Read More]

Mogul Mowgli Review

Mogul Mowgli starts in medias res on stage with Zed, a Brit-Pakistani Rapper (Riz Ahmed) enthralling his audience with his rap verse. The choice of camerawork and the full frame aspect ratio gives it this raw authentic feel that not everyone will like and hits you hard right off the bat. It is clear that this is not a comfortable film to watch, is it a good film, though? I would argue that it is a...[Read More]

Turning Red will restart the Pixar theatrical experience with Pixar’s Lightyear following in the summer.

The animated feature planned for 2018 will see Mystery Inc. back on the big screen. During CinemaCon the studio announced that this will be beginning of “unlocking the whole Hanna-Barbera universe.” That means we should expect to see other animated f...[Read More]

Brave – Theatrical Review

While Cars 2 was enjoyable enough those two movies about anthropomorphic automobiles are in the bottom tier of Pixar pictures for me. So when preview clips for the next Pixar flick gave us glimpses of an unruly red haired lass with bow and arrow and the title of Brave, my anticipation level kicked up a notch. And Brave is aptly titled. For what could be a cliched love story about a young Scottish ...[Read More]

The Hunger Games – Theatrical Review

I will admit upfront that I did not even hear of The Hunger Games novel until the first images from the movie hit the web. I tend to live in a world of film and not book. It’s not something that was really encouraged, or something that was pushed upon me as a child. I’m working on changing that of course. That’s not why we’re here though. We’re here to talk about The Hunger Games. I tend not to be...[Read More]

Real Steel – Theatrical Review

Real Steel is the kind of 80’s PG-13 action-adventure/comedy-relationship flick you’ve been waiting for since, well, the 80’s. Loosely based on the Richard Matheson story “Steel” (and by loosely based on, I mean took the central idea of boxing robots from…), Real Steel follows down-on-his-luck ex-boxer Charlie Kenton (Jackman), set into a near-future funk where his boxing career was taken aw...[Read More]

Black Swan – Theatrical Review

Black Swan has a lot going for it: Natalie Portman, Darren Aronofsky, dope early Soviet era inspired posters, Tchaikovsky. But like someone on a blind date I went in with restrained expectations, hoping for the best but worried about being let down. Where to begin? It’s as if Aronofsky sat me down and said: “What terrifies you the most? Doppelgängers? Hitchcockian fixations on buns? A ...[Read More]

The Expendables – Theatrical Review

The 80’s was undoubtedly the manliest and most muscular decade in film history (as recently decided upon by Muscle & Fitness). We had former Mr. Olympia and Mr. Universe Arnold Schwarzenegger. Rocky…no, Rambo…no, Rocky…ummm Sylvester Stallone, the muscles from Brussels Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren who challenged most of these muscleheads head on. In the early 90’s...[Read More]

Inception – Theatrical Review

Inception is a brilliant beacon in the void of summer cinema. And because of the season it seems to shine a little brighter than it really does. Just so there is no misunderstandings about it, my opinion of Inception is near total enthrallment. Using the goodwill and money banked from his more commercially successful projects, Christopher Nolan has released a movie of unquestionable high quality a...[Read More]

Predators – Theatrical Review

In 1924 the Collier’s Weekly magazine published a short story by Richard Connell titled, ‘The Most Dangerous Game.’ In it the main character Sanger Rainsford, a big game hunter from New York, ends up on an isolated island in the Carribean. Once there Rainsford finds himself in the hunt of his life as not the hunter but the hunted by a Russian aristocrat, General Zaroff. The eleme...[Read More]
