Movie Review: ‘How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World’ Starring Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, Cate Blanchett
Heading to the theater to see the screening of How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World, two things raced through my mind: Could the movie provide a satisfactory conclusion to the trilogy? and Am I going to die in this pending ice storm that’s supposed to hit tonight? Upon reflection, I can safely say […]
The House with a Clock in Its Walls is based on the 1973 children’s novel of the same name and follows an orphaned child named Lewis Barnavelt. The book is written by John Bellairs and is the first in a series of twelve books following Lewis through his adventures. Though I can’t imagine we’ll ever […]
Just where exactly has Thor been? 2015’s Avengers: Age of Ultron was the last significant appearance of Thor Odinson (not including the brief mid-credit cameo after Doctor Strange). There’s been five MCU movies since Ultron, including the all-but-titled Avengers flick that was Captain America: Civil War, which left fans everywhere wondering “Where is Thor?!” Well, […]
Four guys sitting around discussing ball gowns. That’s what we’ve been reduced to this week thanks to Cinderella. “Why didn’t we see the new Liam Neeson movie?” you ask.

Movie Review: ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ Starring Martin Freeman, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage
After almost 9 years of waiting, we finally return to Middle Earth in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. There was a period of time where we weren’t sure what would happen with the film, or who would direct it. But it was inevitable in my mind that the only man worthy of helming such a […]

Joe Wright’s latest, Hanna, is an assassin picture on the surface but at its heart is a film of self discovery after being trapped in isolation your whole life. It all works really well, but after one viewing I feel like it is missing that special something to make it incredible. The film is fun, […]
