War for the Planet of the Apes Review

War for the Planet of the Apes is the highly anticipated conclusion to the Planet of the Apes trilogy. The film takes place a few years after the events of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, where Caesar (Andy Serkis) and his family have been forced into a devastating war with a ruthless military Colonel. As the apes continue to suffer heavy losses, Caesar … Continue reading War for the Planet of the Apes Review

Spider-Man: Homecoming Review

Spider-Man: Homecoming, an exciting and well-acted entry into the Marvel Universe, manages trim the fat from your usual superhero origin story, and gives fans of Spidey the film they all wanted to see. Presuming that audiences are exhausted with Spider-Man origin stories (as this is the sixth Spider-Man film in fifteen years), the film jumps right into the part that viewers want to see. Taking … Continue reading Spider-Man: Homecoming Review

Baby Driver Review

The oddly titled film Baby Driver, starring Ansel Elgort and directed by Edgar Wright, is an exhilarating and stylish movie with a whole lot of spunk. It features some of the best writing, characters, and car chase sequences that modern action flicks can possibly offer. The audience is first introduced to the main protagonist named Baby (Ansel Elgort), a gifted getaway driver for a network … Continue reading Baby Driver Review

Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl Review

With the release of Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales, I’ve decided to review the film that kicked off this billion dollar series. The story, full of sword-clashing, swashbuckling pirates, takes place near the Caribbean Sea, in a city called Port Royal. There we meet the charming and absurd pirate named Captain Jack Sparrow (played by Johnny Depp), who is down on … Continue reading Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl Review

Transformers: The Last Knight Review

What else is there left to say about the Transformers series? The films are long, poorly written, and entirely too predictable. Yet, they continue to be made, profiting more and more money with each sequel. Despite this unfortunate truth, I will attempt to honestly review the film all the same. The film takes place shortly after the events of the previous installment, where humans are at … Continue reading Transformers: The Last Knight Review

The Mummy Review

The Mummy is a shockingly lousy attempt by Universal to copy the Marvel Cinematic Universe format. As the first installment of the lamely titled Dark Universe series, The Mummy is a bloated mess, with poorly written characters, easily predictable dialogue, and a very lame premise. The film follows an antique thief named Nick Morton (played by Tom Cruise), who accidentally unearths an ancient mummy princess named … Continue reading The Mummy Review

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Review

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales finally jumps the shark for this tiresome series. Taking place some years after On Stranger Tides, a luckless Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) is now being pursued by his old nemesis, a ghost pirate named Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem). The only thing that may be able to save the life of Sparrow is the legendary Trident of Poseidon, … Continue reading Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales Review
