Upon Further Consideration

Guardians of the Galaxy: Upon Further Consideration…

NOTE: This is an amendment to a previous review of the same film. When I first reviewed this movie, I don’t think I gave it nearly enough credit for how important it is as a film.  In a way, it may be the most important film of 2014. One reason I feel this way is … Continue reading Guardians of the Galaxy: Upon Further Consideration…

Aladdin Review: Upon Further Consideration…

It’s time once again for another UFC, in which I return to a movie I haven’t seen in years and find out just how much (or how little) my thoughts on it have changed over time. It’s very difficult for me to be critical of a movie that I grew up watching regularly – I … Continue reading Aladdin Review: Upon Further Consideration…

Metropolis Review: Upon Further Consideration…

NOTE: This is an amendment to an earlier review of the same film. When I first watched this movie, it was the Giorgio Moroder version (a soundtrack comprised of ’80s pop that only sometimes fit the scene well).  This is because I had little tolerance for silent cinema at the time, and while I still … Continue reading Metropolis Review: Upon Further Consideration…

Singin’ in the Rain Review: Upon Further Consideration…

SPOILER ALERT Anyone familiar with my “Upon Further Consideration…” series knows from the categorization of this article that I have already seen Singin’ in the Rain in the past.  I think this most recent viewing was my third or fourth one, and I enjoyed each and every previous viewing.  I’ve considered the film to be not … Continue reading Singin’ in the Rain Review: Upon Further Consideration…

Batman Begins Review: Upon Further Consideration…

Most of the time when I review a movie on this website, I’m doing it because I hadn’t seen the film before.  “Upon Further Consideration…” is the series I use once in a blue moon when I feel like sharing my thoughts on a film I haven’t seen in a long while. Since I talk … Continue reading Batman Begins Review: Upon Further Consideration…

The National Treasure series: Upon Further Consideration…

(MINOR SPOILERS) I’d always thought of the National Treasure series as a franchise that was decent for what it was, but wasn’t anything all that special. For this reason, I was surprised to find out that the screenwriters behind it were Ted Elliot and Terry Rossio, whose website I’ve relied on greatly to learn about … Continue reading The National Treasure series: Upon Further Consideration…
