One of the taglines used to promote Swiss Army Man reads, “In a Summer full of sequels and reboots, Swiss Army Man makes the movies fun again.” I agree. One of my main criticisms of movies and the industry in general is the lack of unique and original blockbuster or mainstream films. And when you watch Swiss Army Man, whether yo
Oh boy. Holy crap. That was something. Game of Thrones may be the best show I currently watch. After binging the first five seasons, this was the first season I watched live. Gotta say, I prefer binging. Sure, watching it live gives you something to look forward to every Sunday, and you’re free from spoilers, but I think these s
Liam Hemsworth is not Will Smith. Aliens attacking the world is no longer a new idea. And this sequel is nowhere near as good as the original. Twenty years after the original Independence Day was released, we have the sequel. Roland Emmerich, the director of such cinema classics as 2012 and 10,000 BC helms this project once
The Neon Demon stars Elle Fanning who plays Jesse, a 16 year-old girl who moves to LA and aspires to be a model. There, she meets a group of women who have been in the modeling industry much longer than she has, however once they meet Elle, the only thing they want now is Elle’s perfection in beauty. Alright, right off the bat
Finally, after 13 years, we get a sequel to Pixar’s Finding Nemo! Finding Dory continues the adventures of Marlin, Nemo and of course Dory, except this time, the story shifts over to our favorite forgetful fish. In this sequel, Dory (who is still voiced by the great Ellen DeGeneres) gets fragments of her past, which causes her t
Finding Nemo’s one of my favorite Pixar films. In my top five, for sure. It’s one of the earliest movies I can vividly remember seeing in theaters, and I can’t praise it enough. I love the characters, the emotion, the comedy, and the adventure of crossing the entire ocean, encountering all manner of thrills and colorful characte
Brad Bird has directed The Iron Giant and The Incredibles, two of my favorite films, as well as working on The Simpsons. He was really the only reason I got around to watching this movie. It didn’t do particularly well, critically or financially, but I wanted to give it a chance. I’m glad I did, but I understand the criticism.
Here’s my best of list for best movie scenes. Ever. Many of these scenes are from some of my favorite movies, which makes sense right? A movie is only as good as it’s worst scene, like a chain. Sort of. Anyway, these scenes are my favorite based not on the acting, the writing, or the cinematography but is a collection of all of
I think Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping should be put in a time capsule for this century as it is one of the best satirical films I’ve seen thus far, really representing what the music industry has become. Now, it’s no This is Spinal Tap (1984) but it is one of the best of its kind since.
