Werewolf By Night (2022) Review

Werewolf by Night is an excellent addition to the Disney Plus library. It opens the door for future one-hour specials from the streaming giant. This new approach expands the genre of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), both in visual and theme. It introduces obscure characters from the Marvel catalogue like Elsa Bloodstone (Laura Donnelly), Jack Russell (Gael García Bernal), and Man-Thing (Carey Jones). The story is … Continue reading Werewolf By Night (2022) Review

The Curse of Bridge Hollow (2022) Review

Didn’t expect to have such a good time watching this. Marlon Wayans is no doubt an amazing comedian, but his Netflix projects tend to be a toss-up. The Curse of Bridge Hollow is funny, family friendly, and has a good dose of action. Starring Marlon Wayans, Priah Ferguson, and Kelly Rowland. The film is a call back to Disney original movies released during Halloween in … Continue reading The Curse of Bridge Hollow (2022) Review

Prey (2022) Review

Disney purchasing 20th Century Fox, is the best thing that could have happened to the Predator franchise. The quality of films declined with installments like Alien vs Predator. As a child, they’re entertaining but upon revisiting them as an adult, it’s evident they haven’t aged well. This is in part due to the demystification of the antagonist or villain. An issue plaguing iconic slashers in the horror … Continue reading Prey (2022) Review

Bold golden letters in an elegant metallic font spell out the title, "Tales of Novia."

Thor, the God of Thunder, engages in a battle wielding the Thunderbolt of Zeus against his battle axe, Stormbreaker. Yellow and blue energy emanates from both weapons as Thor screams a battle cry.

Thor: Love & Thunder (2022) Review

I’m at the point in my life where I can gauge the quality of a film from the preview trailer. I recommend you go into Thor: Love and Thunder, with relatively low expectations. Even so, this did not quell my disappointment. The villain, Gorr the God Butcher, is an inappropriate choice for the narrative. Thus, creating a tonal conflict that plagued the entire story. This entry in the Thor … Continue reading Thor: Love & Thunder (2022) Review

Clad in blue and black combat suit. Hotshot flies through the air, eyes glowing yellow with power.

Hotshot #2: A Hero’s Welcome – Part 2

The cover of this comic tells you everything you need to know. Hotshot suffers a severe beatdown from a behemoth of a man known as The Void. I don’t know who this guy is or why he’s obsessed with darkness and “Extinguishing the light.” What I am certain about, is his ability to throw hands and everything but the kitchen sink. There’s a lot of … Continue reading Hotshot #2: A Hero’s Welcome – Part 2

Turning Red (2022) Review

Pixar can do no wrong. They changed how I view storytelling. How is it possible to make film for everyone? This is what family entertainment looks like! Turning Red is the cutest and darnedest thing. Meilin is a 13-year-old girl that transforms into a giant red panda. This proves to be an inconvenience as she is very emotional and rightfully so. The filmmakers did a great job making me … Continue reading Turning Red (2022) Review

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) Review

Whoever made the trailer for this did a great job. It really intrigued me with the espionage vibes. Who can say no to Jude Law and Johnny Depp in the same movie? Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald put the actual beasts on the bench. This time around they focus on the political war between the enigmatic Grindelwald, who wants pure-blood wizards to control the world. I love how they expand … Continue reading Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) Review

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) Review

When this movie released, I wasn’t happy. Such spin off properties are cheap cash-ins in my eyes. Nonetheless, my fiancée and I saw it in theaters. Maybe my predisposed attitude towards the film made the experience unpleasant. Fast forward to the year 2022, a year still wrought with the One-Nine. We at home on HBO Max and decide to give Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find … Continue reading Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) Review

Shang Chi & The Legend of The Ten Rings

This movie is the reason I got Marvel fatigue. It’s not the quality but more so the formula. For years, the studio pumped out cookie cutter films. How many times can heroes fight carbon copies of themselves? Tired of color-coded CG fights where the villain is killed off. Shang Chi & The Legend of The Ten Rings is no different. There is no consistent tone. … Continue reading Shang Chi & The Legend of The Ten Rings
