Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom—Boseman’s Swan Song May Be His Greatest Performance

One of the hardest losses in the pop-culture sphere during the mayhem of 2020 was the life of Chadwick Boseman. While he was best known for his role as Marvel's King T'Challa, the Black Panther, Boseman had a career filled with great performances. For most people, his best performance pre-Panther was his portrayal of Jackie …

The last film I got to see in theaters before the initial theater shutdown back in March was Pixar's Onward which hit every mark and instantly became one of my favorite Pixar films.

Wonder Woman ’84—A Fun Addition to the DCEU That Builds on the First

Fatman—Santa’s Very Own 80’s Action Flick

Merry belated Christmas to all who celebrate and happy holidays to those who do not.

Borat: Subsequent Moviefilm—The Shtick Hasn’t Gotten Old

In 2006, America was hit over the head with our own stupidity with Sacha Baron Cohen's mockumentary, Borat, and it was outrageously hilarious. For years, Cohen has said that he was not going to film a sequel mainly due to people too easily recognize him and the Borat character now. However, under the veil of …

Antebellum—There’s a Reason This Scrapped Its Theatrical Run

Whenever I see "From the Producers of Get Out", I immediately get excited. Jordan Peele's team behind Get Out and Us did a phenomenal job with both of those films with their intersection of horror and race issues in America. So when those words came across my computer screen when I originally watched the trailer …

Mulan (2020)—A Fantastic Remake Of Disney’s Animated Classic

One of Disney's greatest decades in animation was the 1990's with classics like The Lion King (1994), Aladdin (1992), and Beauty and the Beast (1991). For me, one of my favorite films during this time was 1998's Mulan, and now, Mulan has taken its place as the most recent of the 90's Disney lineup to …

Arguably, one of the best directors in the business right now is Christopher Nolan.

The New Mutants—Fox’s Era of X-Men Doesn’t Stick the Landing In Its Final Hours

The movie that started off the the surge of comic book films was Fox's X-Men back in 2000, for it showed studios that they could make profitable, well-received, and mature films out of the properties. From there, Fox spawned two direct sequels, a three-film Wolverine series (Logan (2017) being the best live-action comic book film), …

Artemis Fowl—A Foul Disgrace to Moviemaking and the Fantasy Genre

The popular YA book series from Eoin Colfer was one of my favorites growing up as it was a very different take on the fantasy genre than what the Harry Potter , The Lord of the Rings, and Inheritance Cycle series gave us. Artemis Fowl was inventive, funny, and an overall enjoyable book series that …
