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…

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

Deadpool Review

This is, first and foremost, a comic book movie.  I would not consider this to be a farcical comedy film that simply borrows elements from superhero stories, or that parodies comic books in the way that Holy Musical B@man does.  This is a comic book movie that borrows from the farcical comedy.  When looked at this … Continue reading Deadpool Review

Avengers: Age of Ultron Review

First of all, everyone needs to see the first Avengers movie, preferably after seeingCaptain America and Iron Man.  Then, watch Avengers, and after that, Capt 2 and maybe a few of the others in between.  After that, you care about all the characters in Avengers: Age of Ultron.  That’s really all that matters with this movie. The movie … Continue reading Avengers: Age of Ultron Review

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Review

I’ll try to keep this review simple and spoiler-free. It’s funny how I’d give Cap 2 about the same rating as Guardians of the Galaxy, but for completely different reasons.  Basically, Guardians worked because it was silly and fun, and it knew how to handle that.  Cap 2 worked because it was dramatic and mysterious, and it knew … Continue reading Captain America: The Winter Soldier Review

Big Hero 6 Review

MINOR (MINOR) SPOILER ALERT Watching this movie was an odd experience for me because I felt like I was a spectator rather than part of the experience.  That is not to say that I did not enjoy it.  Big Hero 6 is a well built film, that successfully makes the characters likable, the story understandable … Continue reading Big Hero 6 Review
