Rogue One – The only Rogue Story

I saw Rogue One when it hit theaters, but did not feel like giving it a full blown review then, as I was very conflicted. People seemed to really like it and I wanted to like it, but the truth is, I didn’t. Don’t get me wrong, Rogue One is still one of the best…

Guardians (2017) – The Russian Avengers Spoof

(At least I hope it is meant as a spoof…) Guardians is one of those really weird high-budget films that doesn’t act like it deserves its high budget. Let’s get right down to it. The film has the feel of a major blockbuster film, but at the same time the writing is so bad, you…

IO (2019) – The MacGuffin

Thus far, Netflix only counts 13 original Sci-Fi films their own. It is all the more disappointing that one of their newest entries, IO, is a big letdown. The concept is great. We meet Sam (Margaret Qualley), a young woman (probably in her early twenties, but not quite clear) and one of the last people…

SOLO – Yet Another Star Wars Story…

I skipped SOLO in theatres, as I was not the least bit interested in seeing it, but I recently caught it at a friend’s place, who had bought the digital version of the film, so I am ending up reviewing it after all. Right of the back, I want to mention that SOLO did not…

Bla Bla Bland – La La Land (2016) Review

After a very long summer break, I am back with more movie reviews and we start things off with La La Land (2016). I skipped this one, when it came out in theatres and only recently got around to viewing it. With films that are talked about a lot, I often like to wait until…

Avengers: Infinity War (2018) – “Oh, God!”

I will start with a very quick, spolier free review of Avengers: Infinity War and then immediately launch into a detailed analysis of the film as there is really so much to dig into. So first of all, you really have to see this film. But you probably shouldn’t see it if you are unfamiliar…

Ready Player One (2018) – “Shut Up, Steven!”

Before I begin the review, let me disclose that I did not read the book and thus have no background understanding of it or its characters. This is based entirely on my viewing experience of the film. Ready Player One is entertaining; it contains many goofy moments, but ultimately it is also full of clich├ęs,…

Tomb Raider (2018) – The First Good Video Game Movie

Video game movies suck. They all do; there is no exception. That is the general concensus. While I personally enjoyed Prince of Persia, I tend to agree with the sentiment; that is until today. Tomb Raider (2018) is a fantastic screen adaptation of the rebooted Tomb Raider game franchise. I cannot praise this film enough.…

Black Panther (2018) – Just another MCU film?

Black Panther (2018) is a solid addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe with an important message for us voters and our political leaders. Black Panther delivers another origin story that is not an origin story, much like Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017). In a world filled with superhero films, you would think we would finally get sick…

Darkest Hour (2017)

The Darkest Hour is a film about rebellion; about standing up for oneself and fighting against hopeless odds and finally triumphing over the great evil empire that is threatening to destroy all that is good in the world. In a way, Darkest Hour represents what made the original Star Wars very appealing to me and…
