Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure Review

Man.  I needed this. It’s been a rough semester for me – one with many assignments and not a lot of time to relax.  Fortunately, I was able to squeeze a little bit of time in for a fun movie during my meals, so I decided to watch one of the great ’80s stupid comedies: Bill … Continue reading Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure Review

The Matrix Review

I was brought here by The Question.  It’s the question that’s been playing in my head on a loop ever since I first started studying film.  It’s the question I, as a movie buff, have been asked more than any other: “What do you think of The Matrix?”. Really.  This actually happens. Whenever someone hears … Continue reading The Matrix Review

The Iron Giant Review

The Iron Giant is, in some respects, a concerning and disappointing film.  Whenever a movie has the capacity to encourage children to think more like scientists, but instead chooses to reinforce the old notion that believing in wild alien stories and conspiracy theories is good, this is disheartening.  However, because it is typical of Hollywood … Continue reading The Iron Giant Review

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
