John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum Review

After two majorly successful films that seemed to reinvigorate an overwhelmingly stale genre, John Wick returns to theaters guns blazing and as adrenaline fueled as ever. John wick 3 is quite unabashedly a nonstop murder festival of gunfights and brutal deaths. It’s basically John against the world as he fights for his life among a plethora of lethal, highly trained assassins. Everywhere he turns, there’s … Continue reading John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum Review

Avengers: Endgame Review (No Spoilers)

The Marvel Cinematic Universe has come to dominate, and in some ways redefine, the action genre. Every major franchise has taken their shot at creating an in-depth universe full of engaging characters and interesting settings. Star Wars, DC Comics, the Universal Monster monster movies, none have been as successful at captivating audiences as Marvel. While I’ve shown disappointment with several of their productions in the … Continue reading Avengers: Endgame Review (No Spoilers)

Shazam! Review

Who knew that one of DC’s most entertaining and thought-provoking movies would be Shazam!, the first in the series to not really take itself all that seriously. With their current track record, I certainly didn’t predict this outcome, so I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy my time watching the movie. Shazam! follows the story of 14-year-old Billy Batson (Asher Angel and Zachary Levi), an orphaned boy … Continue reading Shazam! Review

Welcome to Marwen Review: The Most Disappointing Movie of 2018

Having lost his memory and ability to draw from the attack, he now lives out his life through a fictional village he … Continue reading Welcome to Marwen Review: The Most Disappointing Movie of 2018

Night of the Living Dead (1968) Review

I am completely exhausted of the zombie craze, and it’s not an overstatement to suggest that others are too. For years the zombie has become increasingly embedded in our culture, with an influx of television shows, movies, and video games all about them. Many use the same plot formula and clichés, while others try to add their own blend of creativity to this oddly wide-open … Continue reading Night of the Living Dead (1968) Review

Super Troopers 2 Review

After almost twenty years since the release of the cult film Super Troopers, audiences decided they needed another dose of their favorite Highway Patrolman. Funded through a very successful Indiegogo campaign, Super Troopers returns for more hijinks, drugs, and ridiculous shenanigans. Having been fired from the Vermont Highway Patrol for previous mischief, our incompetent heroes are given a shot at redemption when they’re recruited to police … Continue reading Super Troopers 2 Review

Tomb Raider Review: The Last Crusade Meets National Treasures

There has never been a good video game movie. Never. Period. Not a single one. Super Mario Bros., Double Dragon, and House of the Dead, all failures. Time and time again audiences get pumped up for the next video game adaptation, only to be entirely disappointed by the end product. Some try to defend such films like Assassin’s Creed and Resident Evil, only for their … Continue reading Tomb Raider Review: The Last Crusade Meets National Treasures
