Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 Review

In my recent UFC on the first guardians film, I mentioned that this movie went an extra mile in its celebration, or perhaps I should say “glorification,” of ’70s pop music in comparison to Volume 1.  So, I’m going to take a look at this in a little more depth.  My spoiler-free version of the review … Continue reading Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2 Review

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…

The Dark Knight Review

I hate giving this film a positive review.  I really do hate to do it.  This film is just so gray and so obsessed with realism, whereas I like my Batman with color and camp.  This film more or less sums up everything I don’t like about DC’s current films – it’s all the top ways to … Continue reading The Dark Knight Review

The LEGO Batman Movie Review

SPOILER WARNING This film’s strengths and weaknesses both pertain to the issue of “heart” in film.

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…

Captain America: Civil War Review

What can I say that hasn’t already been said?  Well, okay, here’s one thing that no one else has said: I didn’t go into this movie taking a side.  I did declare myself as Team Cap or Team Iron Man at any time, because I tend to be on Team Shut Up and Talk Like Civilized … Continue reading Captain America: Civil War Review

The Rocketeer Review

(MINOR SPOILERS) I really like Timothy Dalton.  I greatly enjoy watching Jennifer Connelly.  This movie was recommended to me by a friend, and I was pretty sure I would love it.  Unfortunately, the movie was largely dull and uninteresting for the first half.  The protagonist was a bore, and the antagonist was honestly more likable … Continue reading The Rocketeer Review
