Turning Red film review (2022)

Turning Red is one of Disney-Pixar’s most imaginative and original film in years, both in its animation and its story. It’s clever in how it showcases the different stages and transitions a young, teenage girl can go through and it does so unapologetically, which in turn, makes for an incredibly charming, heartfelt, and hilarious watch. It also emphasizes the importance of friendship, the pressure of … Continue reading Turning Red film review (2022)

The Adam Project film review (2022)

Some of the ideas aren’t very original and it sometimes feels a bit generic, but it’s an incredibly charming and emotional story with some impressive special effects from time to time. They couldn’t have found a better young actor to portray the younger version of Ryan Reynolds in Walker Scobell, who are both hilarious together. No matter what movie he’s in, you can be sure … Continue reading The Adam Project film review (2022)

The Batman film review (2022)

Although a bit lengthy and never fully fulfilling all the plot ideas introduced, The Batman is beautifully shot, having some of the greatest cinematography I’ve ever seen in a superhero film. It may be the best iteration of Batman, the character, I’ve seen yet as well. The day I’ve been waiting for is finally here. I have seen The Batman after anxiously awaiting its arrival … Continue reading The Batman film review (2022)

Uncharted film review (2022)

There are some cool set pieces, especially the expeditions they go on searching for lost treasure, which remind me of the Uncharted games. Tom Holland does his best as well, but ultimately, none of these performances do the characters justice, and the story doesn’t feel like it’s honoring the game series due to poor writing. Let’s get right to it, shall we? Personally, the Uncharted … Continue reading Uncharted film review (2022)

Scream film review (2022)

I found some story developments predictable and some situations laughably bizarre. But, this is arguably the best entry in the series since the first one, delivering the same slasher/whodunnit elements fans love, while also having some surprising twists, honoring what comes before it, and still being an incredibly tense watch throughout. I recognize I’m a bit late with this review, even though I saw it … Continue reading Scream film review (2022)

Every Marvel Cinematic Universe film, ranked

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has provided not only some of the best superhero films I’ve ever seen, but some of my favorite movies of all time, period. It’s hard to rank them, but here is every MCU film ranked from worst to best. Before 2008’s Iron Man, there were some solid superhero films, such as Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy, the first two X-Men movies, and … Continue reading Every Marvel Cinematic Universe film, ranked

Spider-Man: No Way Home film review (2021)

Spider-Man: No Way Home is full of fan service, but it’s actually handled with purpose and honor. It opens up a number of questions, but it never feels confusing, rushed, or crowded. It’s everything I wanted it to be and more, delivering one of the greatest adventures in the MCU and Tom Holland’s best turn as Peter Parker/Spider-Man. Well, I finally saw Spider-Man: No Way … Continue reading Spider-Man: No Way Home film review (2021)

West Side Story film review (2021)

West Side Story is full of beautiful cinematography, set pieces, musical numbers, and performances. Steven Spielberg further proves he’s an all-time great by revitalizing a classic for a new generation and making it feel even more relevant today with its diverse casting and emotionally compelling story-telling. I was one of many who thought a West Side Story remake wasn’t necessary. In all honesty, although the … Continue reading West Side Story film review (2021)
