The Wizarding World Films Ranked

The Harry Potter franchise can only be described as a global phenomenon. Seven book titles and nine movies later, the series is as strong as ever.  For me, I wasn’t even a fan of the franchise until my sister became a massive fan herself and introduced me to the wizarding world.  The kind of longevity ...

Who Should Direct Transformers 6?

Written By: Nick Poulimenakos Well, this is the end. The end of the Michael Bay era.  With Transformers: The Last Knight being released in theatres this weekend, news broke out that Michael Bay will step away from the franchise, saying that he will not direct Transformers 6.  While there will be fans who will find ...

Cars 3 Review

I think I said this in my review round-up for this film but I’ll say it again.  Welcome to the sequel no one asked for, but we got anyway.  I still, to this day, find it baffling that Cars was turned into a franchise before The Incredibles but I guess toys are more important than ...

The Pixar Films Ranked

Written By: Nick Poulimenakos I’ve got to be honest here. Pixar is a studio that I hold near and dear to my heart. No studio has ever pushed boundaries quite like Pixar has.  Movie after movie, the animation icons have proven to be leaders of the creative, imaginative and the exceptional.  Through 20 years of ...

The Mummy Review

I’ll be the first to admit that I love the classic Universal Monster Movies. Frankenstein, Creature from the Black Lagoon, the original Mummy and so many more have shaped cinema into what it is today.  Much like every other film studio these days when it comes to old films, Universal decided to resurrect these classic ...

Wonder Woman Review

75 years.  It took 75 years for Wonder Woman to make her big screen debut in 2016’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and it was incredible.  Gal Gadot stole every scene she appeared in but it still wasn’t her film.  Fast forward one year later and the day has finally come.  Wonder Woman, directed ...

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Review

In 2003, at the 75th Academy Awards, Johnny Depp was nominated for best actor for his role in the surprise hit, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl.  The film was a mix of swashbuckling fun, action and drama and was the birth of Disney’s next big franchise.  However, over the course ...

Alien: Covenant Review

1979’s Alien is a cinematic masterpiece.  It’s 1986 sequel Aliens is one of the greatest action films ever produced.  Alien 3 is probably one of the worst sci-fi films ever made and Alien: Resurrection is a film that should have never been made.  So, what do you do when the sequel train stops working?  Produce ...

The 20 Best Performances in the Marvel Cinematic Universe

Marvel has always attracted top notch talent for their films, not only signing big names like Robert Downey Jr. but also giving actors and actresses their big break like Tom Holland.  With more films with incredible casts on the way, it felt like a great time to really look at which performances made the MCU so ...

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword Review

I have never been a fan of Arthurian legend. King Arthur, the knights of the roundtable, Lancelot; it just wasn’t my cup of tea.  Then Guy Ritchie came along and announces that he’s directing a new King Arthur story.  One that still stays true to the setting and time of the tale (the 5th century ...

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 Review

2014’s Guardians of the Galaxy was the surprise hit of the year.  When compared to other Marvel Cinematic Universe films, it’s different in almost every aspect.  Benefiting from being almost completely separate (for the time being) from the rest of the MCU, director James Gunn was allowed to put his own spin on comic characters ...

The Fate of the Furious Review

Part of this review will include a spoiler paragraph. I’m sure whoever is reading this has already seen the film but if you haven’t… spoilers… I’ll say when I get into them… Okay yes, this is super late. I know the film came out last week so we obviously should have had a review out ...
