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 ...

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 ...

Power Rangers Review

Written By: Nick Poulimenakos and Artur Galvao IT’S MORPHIN’ TIME! Okay we know that was said that in the last Power Rangers article but c’mon… it’s such a great line! Alright, let’s review this… I mean it was inevitable right? The Power Rangers franchise has been a worldwide phenomenon ever since debuting way back in ...

Beauty and the Beast Review

A tale as old as time… After having an incredible 2016, which saw the releases of Pete's Dragon, The Jungle Book, Moana and Zootopia, Disney returns to the big screen with another “animation-to-live action” film.  This time, it’s one of the company’s heaviest hitters ever – Beauty and the Beast.  The original, which was released ...

Kong: Skull Island Review

In 2014, Godzilla made his triumphant return to American cinema and it was pretty damn cool.  The success of the film led to, you guessed it, another cinematic universe.  Only this time, it doesn’t involve superheroes.   Three years later, Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment announced plans to create a “MonsterVerse,” which includes various Toho Co. ...

Logan Review

This is probably the hardest review I have ever written… Let’s do this… I have said that Wolverine is my favourite superhero a few times on this website.  He was the first superhero I watched on screen (X2: X-Men United was my first superhero movie) and he was the first superhero I read about in ...

Time to review my most anticipated film of 2016! *MILD SPOILERS* Since being announced in May 2014, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, has been my most anticipated film of the year.  Coming from my favourite movie franchise, director Gareth Edwards was tasked with telling ...

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them Review

Originally written on November 23, 2016 Time to review my second most anticipated movie of 2016! *MILD SPOILERS* I’ll be the first to admit that when I first discovered the Harry Potter film and novel series approximately 5 years ago, I was not a fan.  There was something about the franchise that I just disliked ...
