Movie Review: Avengers: Infinity War (2018)

Over the past decade, Marvel Studios have proved time and again their mastery of the superhero genre. Central to this success is the combination of superhero tropes with other genres: World War II film with “Captain America: The First Avenger,” conspiracy thriller with “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” heist movie with “Ant-Man,” high school comedy…

Movie Trailer: Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018)

In “Ant-Man” viewers were surprised with a small (and giant) Thomas the Tank Engine having a profound impact in the action and in its sequel, Ant-Man and the Wasp, a giant PEZ dispenser is served up for recognizable laughs. What else Marvel Studios has in store in their latest addition to their cinematic universe isn’t…

SPECIAL GUEST REVIEWER: I am Groot. Much like our guest reviewer, I was delighted with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. It balances action, humor, character dynamics and stunning effects both visual and practical with multiple plot strands and explorations of family, regret and reconciliation. It is all the more impressive considering what it has…

Movie Trailer #2: Justice League (2017)

With Justice League, DC’s answer to The Avengers is finally here. Whether it’s too late to dethrone Marvel is up for debate, but the liveliness of this second trailer (first “official,” however) is at least a step in the right direction. There is still no definitive plot to spoil as of yet, but along with…
