‘The Lion King (2019)’ Film Review

The Lion King falls into Disney’s recent endeavors to remake their most popular animated films for a live-action setting. Many of these are remakes hail from Disney’s animated Renaissance from the 90s. These films include: Beauty and the Beast (2017), Mulan (2020), and The Little Mermaid (TBA). Following the success of Jungle Book (2016), Jon ...

‘Ralph Breaks the Internet’ Film Review

Six years ago, Walt Disney Animated Studios debuted its 50th feature film: Wreck-It Ralph. The film encompassed everything that brought Disney to the forefront of animation, from its superb animation to its hilarity and its core, a pair of beautifully fleshed out video game characters. A sequel almost seemed inevitable but alas, nothing was announced. ...

‘BlacKKKlansman’ Film Review

Spike Lee's pent up anger uses BlacKKKlansman to show he is not an auteur to be messed with. Similarly to his last film Chi-Raq, we can see the essence of anger and rage frivolously boil in this film. Lacking in the suspense department, the comedy and the seamless blunt approach to every interaction shines greatly ...

The Emoji Movie Review

I have one rule when it comes to cinema. It’s that all movies deserve a chance. No movie should be judged solely based on the reviews from professional critics. Watch the movie for yourself and make your own judgement. So, that’s what I did here with The Emoji Movie. JJ and Artur refused to join ...

Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie Review

Written By: Artur Galvao Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie was a movie that I thought was going to be cash-grab on nostalgic memories of the people that grew up reading the book. Full disclosure, I was excited to watch this movie with one of my friends, but since I couldn’t, it was much harder ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
