Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings film review (2021)

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings has, without a doubt, the best action sequences and choreography in the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe. Throw in well-developed characters, a story you can get behind, and some humor, and you have one of the best superhero origin stories ever. Before all the buzz behind this movie, I was cautiously optimistic about it, but mostly because of … Continue reading Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings film review (2021)

The Suicide Squad film review (2021)

James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad is everything its predecessor isn’t. Although the first one did have some enjoyable characters, this one capitalizes on that by also having a good script, insanely violent action, and it has an actual heart. One of the best things the DCEU ever did is hire James Gunn to direct a new and improved iteration the this notorious team of villains, … Continue reading The Suicide Squad film review (2021)

No Sudden Move film review (2021)

Steven Soderbergh’s latest crime thriller, No Sudden Move, moves at a fast pace but never feels rushed. The ensemble cast delivers incredible individual performances and the film, as a whole, further diversifies and enhances Soderbergh’s already extensive filmography. I’m starting to believe Steven Soderbergh is one of the greatest film directors working today. Of course, I’ve always thought he was fantastic and very unique in … Continue reading No Sudden Move film review (2021)

In the Heights film review (2021)

As of now, In the Heights is the film of the summer, maybe even of the year. It’s a beautiful and relatable story about a neighborhood that’s more like one big, happy family, brought to life by incredible performances and some of the best musical numbers I’ve ever seen in any musical ever. In a perfect world, we were supposed to see In the Heights … Continue reading In the Heights film review (2021)

Cruella film review (2021)

Cruella is definitely full of style and new ideas for a character who’s notoriously known for being wicked. Emma Stone does a great job humanizing the character while still offering moments of familiar cruelty. When it was announced Disney was creating an origin story based on Cruella De Vil, I wasn’t very interested. I mean, Emma Stone is one of my favorite actresses working today, … Continue reading Cruella film review (2021)

A Quiet Place Part II film review (2021)

A Quiet Place Part II is a worthy successor to the original in a number of ways. Although the first one did some things a bit better, the sequel is still full of highly intense moments, great performances from the characters, and an interesting story which I don’t think is over just yet. A year later, I finally got the chance to see A Quiet … Continue reading A Quiet Place Part II film review (2021)

2021 is the year of Musical film adaptations

It seems we haven’t even scratched the surface of all the great movies that are still to come in 2021. One thing for sure is the number of different musical films that are releasing this year, making it an interesting time in cinema. As we all know, 2020 was a strange year all together in almost every facet. When it comes to the entertainment industry, … Continue reading 2021 is the year of Musical film adaptations

Without Remorse movie review (2021)

Michael B. Jordan’s latest action thriller is rarely interesting, laughably predictable, and overall underwhelming. There are some decent character moments from the lead and some exciting action, but they can’t save this otherwise boring effort. I truthfully believe Michael B. Jordan is an incredibly gifted performer. He’s phenomenal in Fruitvale Station, both Creed films, Black Panther, and Just Mercy. The best part is, he’s only … Continue reading Without Remorse movie review (2021)
