Posted: June 7, 2019 at 8:15 am   /   Movie Reviews

The X-Men franchise just can’t seem to close out a trilogy, it seems.  After the greatness of 2000’s X-Men and even more so with 2003’s X2: X-Men United, viewers were left scratching our heads when X-Men: The Last Stand was made to close things out. After a couple of Wolverine films (that actually did get […]

Posted: January 18, 2019 at 8:12 am   /   Local

In 1999, M. Night Shyamalan became a household name with his six-time Oscar-nominated film, The Sixth Sense. The following year, he gave us something even better (at least, in my opinion), and that is Unbreakable – a film that is basically a comic book that unfolds on screen, centralizing on the idea of superheroes possibly […]

This must be the week for unnecessary sequels. Who would have thought the cute 2011 animated feature Gnomeo & Juliet, which tells the story of (you guessed it!) Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet through the lives of garden gnomes, would have ever spawned a sequel seven years later? Certainly not this guy. Sherlock Gnomes is the […]

I’m not exactly sure why, but for whatever reason the 1980s are enjoying a strong renaissance. Wherever you look, the influence of the neon decade has hovered over media, be it in TV shows (“Stranger Things,” the “Lethal Weapon” series), movie reboots (Ghostbusters, Blade Runner), hell, even some video games (Far Cry: Blood Dragon) have […]

Movie Review: ‘X-Men: Apocalypse’ Starring James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence, Oscar Isaac

It’s hard to believe that we are now nine films into the X-Men franchise, which kicked off in 2000 with X-Men and was the catalyst for the “serious” superhero films we know today.

Looks like a great action thriller, with a bit of British flare. The script was voted as one of Britain’s best unproduced scripts in 2010. […]
