My reaction: Christopher Nolan changed things up a bit this time by delving into World War II and the amazing true story of the evacuation at Dunkirk. We follow the perspectives of soldiers on the beach, the civilian boats on the sea that volunteered to help, and pilots tasked with providing air support. When it comes … Continue reading Dunkirk Review: A Triumph in Filmmaking That’s Light on Characters
My reaction is: WOW. I have never walked out of a movie in theaters before. I can usually predict which ones I may not like and wait for rental or streaming, but, I did not walk out on the likes of the Transformers movies or Suicide Squad. Never even thought about it (well maybe a little). Point is, … Continue reading Why I Walked out on Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets
BREAKING: Sources say, "LOL JK."

It almost seems like it is promoting a different movie than the first trailer. Any awkward moments or dialogue are gone and it actually feels like it could be really fun. It is possible that this is because of Joss Wheadon's supposedly extensive … Continue reading New Comic-Con Justice League Trailer
Comic-Con is upon us and with it comes the geeky news we crave! According to the Hollywood Reporter, Ben Affleck may be hanging up the Bat-cape sooner than expected. The source claims the studio will "usher out Affleck's Batman gracefully... in one of the upcoming DC films." So, what does this mean? Will they recast? … Continue reading No More Batfleck? Harley Quin VS. the Joker? Why?

The main reason for my optimism is that this film will be different. Director Josh Boone explained that … Continue reading Why X-Men: New Mutants is Looking Good
