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. Every film he has directed has been unbelievably great (subjectively of course), and each carry his very distinct style of filmmaking. So, with his amazing track record of projects, Tenet had become one of the most anticipated films of the year …

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 …

Da 5 Bloods—Spike Lee’s Newest Joint Just Misses the Mark of Greatness

My third favorite film from 2018 was Spike Lee's BlacKkKlansman, just falling behind Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse and A Quiet Place. Between the acting, directing, writing, timeliness, and every other aspect the film delivered on, it is safe to say that BlacKkKlansman was a masterpiece of film making. Over his long career, Spike Lee has …

Today is my brother's and cousin's graduation day, so in honor of that I will be reviewing Bad Education, HBO's new film that looks at the largest embezzlement from a school scandal in the US.

The Way Back: A Story of Redemption Elevated by Affleck’s Past and Raw Performance

It has been quite some time since the industry has put out a really good sports film as many in recent years have been mediocre at best (the Creed films, Ford v Ferrari, Logan Lucky, and I, Tonya are exceptions to this). So, when I saw the trailers for The Way Back, I was cautiously …
