If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. That’s actually really good advice that has worked for Disney (the laziest studio in the West) in the past. Beauty and the Beast wasn’t tampered with much when they brought it to live action film. Jungle Book did fairly well. Even Alice In Wonderland (with Tim Burton directing) […]Read More DUMBo: A Tim Burton Nightmare-Film Review
The first thing to be said about the movie Unplanned is the ridiculous rating. There are no swear words, no violence, and though there is a lot of blood in parts of the movie, it’s no worse than your average PG-13 action film. The rating is a joke and a testament to how stupid the […]Read More Unplanned & Gosnell: Film Review
Saturday night I saw Shazam! and it.was.awesome. 3 for 3 with the stand alones for DC. Well done. While Marvel was handing out free tickets to try and get butts in seats and positive reviews, DC was SELLING early tickets to get butts in seats to get in early reviews. I used to watch Shazam […]Read More Shazam! (vs Captain Marvel): Film Review
The Review: Ugh. There is a key, universal, direction to writers of any media and it is this: SHOW don’t TELL. This movie is a crap-ton of telling. It starts out awesome. The story kicks along nicely, and although the chemistry between Brie Larson and Jude Law seems acidic, or rather like two magnets of […]Read More Captain Marvel: Film Review
I don’t understand why Marvel made so many bad decisions in regards to Captain Marvel. Their trailers were horrible. They went out of their way to pick fights with fans, so much so that I didn’t go and see the movie even to write a review on it. I didn’t want to be a part […]Read More Marvel Ads for Captain Marvel have universally sucked.
I purchased this box set on Kickstarter when the campaign first started, hoping to get my husband a game that he would like but hadn’t heard of yet. The game was an instant hit with the family. We have teenagers who aren’t really so interested in a long game with parents, and this game moves […]Read More 5 Minute Dungeon: A Review
Once Upon A Deadpool, or Deadpool 2 the PG-13 version, was a milder, less violent version of Deadpool 2 with a twist. The twist includes an homage to The Princess Bride and an appearance from a full grown Fred Savage. In this version, without much of a spoiler, Deadpool reads Fred a bedtime story which […]Read More Once Upon A Deadpool: Film Review
One of the first things that hit you about this animated film, is the style. The sharp lines filled in by classic coloring styles with a feint double vision in the background was meant to be a throwback to comic books. You will see a lot of shading techniques only found in old print comics, […]Read More Into the Spiderverse: Film Review
Something curious seems to have happened in the market as of late. I first noticed it with the video game Battlefield 5 pre-release when the people trying to convince their perspective customers to buy their product actually said “If you don’t like it, don’t buy it.” This is a curious way to market a product, […]Read More If you don’t like it, don’t buy it?
