Film Review: ‘Ready Player One’ Starring Tye Sheridan, Olivia Cooke, Ben Mendelsohn

Posted: March 29, 2018 at 9:29 am   /   Movie Reviews

When the first trailer dropped for Ready Player One, I was incredibly intrigued by its premise and seemingly endless string of video game and pop culture references riddled throughout, not to mention none other than the likes of Steven Spielberg in the director’s chair. Therefore, I sought out the 2011 best-selling book by Ernest Cline. […]

If you ask the question “What is the BFG?” to two different generations, there’s a good chance you’re going to get two very different responses. Growing up in the 90’s as a computer gamer, my first reaction when I heard the title of the movie harkened back to my days of playing DOOM and Quake […]

Lincoln is a President that everyone knows, without really knowing the man himself.

For me, “The Adventures of Tintin” couldn’t fail.  The talent and source material was just too great.  I had been familiar with the character due to my brother.  He watched the tv series that aired on HBO in the early ’90s.  I knew he was a young twenty something journalist who had adventures involving mysteries […]
