Movie Review: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018)

When Sony announced its plans for a theatrical release of an animated Spider-Man film, even hardcore fans of the web swinger may have considered it to be just another unwarranted adaptation. “Haven’t we seen enough portrayals of Spider-Man?,” those with comic-book movie fatigue asked, and yet in his seventh major solo theatrical release since 2002,…

Movie Review: Tag (2018)

When one hears of a group of adult men playing a 23-year long game of tag, one may intrinsically imagines an R-rated, raunchy comedy starring some of this decades most recognizable comedic faces acting like complete morons. While that is a valid assumption, the movie in question, Tag, also has a heart and is surprisingly…

Movie Review: The Mummy (2017)

For a film franchise that began in 1931 (with Boris Karloff in the original title role) and includes literally dozens of pictures, there are still some new things I learned from this latest edition (directed by Alex Kurtzman, “People Like Us”) of The Mummy.

Causing all the initial problems is a hybrid dinosaur, known as Indominus Rex, conceived in the lab to be bigger than…

Movie Trailer: Jurassic World (2015)

Isla Nublar is in business! And if you thought T-Rex or the Velociraptors were bad news, you haven’t seen the dinosaur mutation dreamed up by the scientists of the park (led by Bryce Dallas Howard). Patrons weren’t supposed to see it either, but nature has a way of breaking containment (didn’t something similar happen in…

Movie Review: Neighbors (2014)

I’m not quite sure how it works but I get a distinct feeling fraternities don’t just up and buy a house in the middle of quiet neighborhoods and setup shop. Especially one known for hosting extravagant, panty-dropping parties and on some sort of super, double secret probation. That, you see, would be a recipe for…
