The Flash review (2023)

Some of The Flash’s special effects aren’t the greatest and a majority of the jokes didn’t land, but the story is an emotional ride that keeps you engaged throughout while using fan service and nostalgia in service of the narrative rather than simply shoehorning it in. It’s a proper close to the universe as we know it as it ushers in a new era of … Continue reading The Flash review (2023)

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse review (2023)

Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse is a visual marvel, surpassing its predecessor in almost everyway. The animation is extremely creative and mind-blowing, the story is a massive concoction of chaos, emotion, and heart, and the action set pieces are masterful. It’s overwhelmingly ambitious in all the right ways, and it’s, as of right now, the film of the year. It’s further proof that superhero fatigue doesn’t … Continue reading Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse review (2023)

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 review (2023)

Although Adam Warlock was severely underutilized, it’s clear Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was all about the original team and the familial bond they have. It’s an emotional roller coaster from start to finish, delivering tear-jerking scenes, it’s hilarious, contains several memorable character moments, it’s beautifully edited/shot, and the action is top-notch. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 is the film this universe needed … Continue reading Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 review (2023)

The Super Mario Bros. Movie review (2023)

The story is a bit silly and generic, but The Super Mario Bros. Movie beautifully and faithfully adapts the video games with visually breathtaking animation that looks like the games, incorporates game-accurate platforming, action, and items, and most of the performances do justice to the beloved characters. Say what you will about video game film/series adaptations as of late, but there was something different about … Continue reading The Super Mario Bros. Movie review (2023)

John Wick: Chapter 4 review (2023)

John Wick: Chapter 4 has phenomenal action sequences and some beautiful cinematography, even if it’s overwhelmingly over-the-top and a bit unrealistic at times. However, the flashiness doesn’t always save it from the lackluster plot and shallow, unmemorable characters. One thing can’t be denied: The John Wick series, when it comes to action, does it better than most movies with its fight choreography and the camera … Continue reading John Wick: Chapter 4 review (2023)

Creed III review (2023)

Creed III is sometimes jarring with its pacing and transitions, and the lack of Rocky’s presence is felt at times. But, it still manages to stand on its own as yet another fantastic entry into this iconic film universe with expertly filmed and series’ best fighting sequences, an emotionally personal story, memorable performances, and an incredibly engaging dynamic between Adonis Creed and his former friend … Continue reading Creed III review (2023)

Jesus Revolution review (2023)

Jesus Revolution continues the trend of well-made religious films with convincing acting, great cinematography, and a heart-warming story, even if it still has some annoying tropes. At the same time, it touches on unique and controversial topics about Christianity and those involved in it. I have to say, I was genuinely surprised with Jesus Revolution. I mean, it’s a good film, much like the ones … Continue reading Jesus Revolution review (2023)

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania review (2023)

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania is a fantastic introduction to the MCU’s next big bad, Kang the Conqueror, but a lot of the rest of the film leaves plenty to be desired. Phase 4 of the MCU is unquestionably a mixed bag for most of the fandom. Although I tend to fall on the side of those who enjoyed most of what was released during … Continue reading Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania review (2023)
