‘Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom’ Film Review

Jurassic World was the sequel in a franchise that began with one of the most beloved films of all time. That movie was underwhelming as the it failed to craft an engaging narrative. Featuring poorly written characters, Colin Trevorrow’s dino-epic brought nothing new to the franchise and was ultimately fueled by nostalgia. The sequel to ...

‘Incredibles 2’ Film Review

*This is a spoiler-free review* Oh man it’s been long time. I never expected to see this film after almost 14 years of waiting. Similarly, to other people my age, this is very important film in my journey to becoming an adult. I watched the first film when I was child and now I’m watching ...

‘Ocean’s 8’ Film Review

All female reboots/remakes have become one of the most talked about hot-button issues in Hollywood today. The call for more diversity in film has led to some amazing projects while others (Star Wars pushing for more female representation) has been met with a more mixed reaction. Personally, I would rather women and people of color ...

‘Won’t You Be My Neighbor?’ Film Review

143. This very special number and its message perfectly summarize the theme and mood of this lovely documentary. 143 is not just the weight of the beloved Fred Rogers (yes, every morning after his leisure swim, Mr. Rogers would weigh himself, and it would read 143 pounds), but it also serves as his and (the ...

‘Isle of Dogs’ Film Review

Wes Anderson’s last stop-motion film, Fantastic Mr. Fox, was really good.  Isle of Dogs is his first since animated film then, and Anderson once again proves that he’s a master of the genre.  This deeply rich movie is relevant, contains great performances and conveys this all with gorgeous animation.  This is a movie worth watching, ...

‘Avengers: Infinity War’ Film Review

*This is a spoiler-free review*  The wait is over. Celebrating ten years of the Marvel Cinematic Universe within a two and a half hour smorgasbord of action and emotion, reconciliation and separation. Avengers: Infinity War assembles Earth’s mightiest heroes to wage a war against Thanos in his pursuit of the six Infinity Stones. Thor, Iron ...

‘Suicide Squad: Hell to Pay’ Film Review

It seems that the Suicide Squad can only be done justice in the field of animation, and if the rumors of Black Adam appearing as the antagonist in the live-action sequel prove correct, this will still be the case.  This was proved true once with Batman Assault on Arkham, and while it isn’t quite as ...
