Review – Power Rangers

By guest columnist k.e.n.n.y.h.

“…this is a bad idea right?”
“The worst.”

Surprisingly not really – that’s right. Power Rangers are back for all you kiddies from the nineties (and everyone else who’s wondering what the hell all of this is.) Welcome to the re-imagining of the original American knock-off of Japanese Super Sentai (has no bearing on the movie, but we’re all about the facts here.) The cult classic has a reboot with a new look, a new feel, and undoubtedly a new merchandise range.

Review – Life

Review – Life

So, when I was a kid I always wanted to be an astronaut. Even though I was great at math and science I was lazy, so here I am just writing about a space movie. When I saw the preview for Life I just knew I had to see it. Now that I’ve seen this movie let me just say that I never, ever want to go to space. Ever.

Review – Beauty and the Beast

By guest columnist my_year_in_movies.

Beauty and the Beast had a near impossible job on its hand: How do you remake arguably the most beloved animated movie of all time? Take the easy route and not change a thing and the critics will ask what the point is (hell, some grumps are gonna ask that no matter what happens). Change too much and the villagers will be after you with pitchforks.

Review: Logan

Posted by: |

Review: Logan

James Mangold’s Logan is the definitive Wolverine movie. Subdued, mature, contemplative and brutal, Logan arguably could be called the best X-Men movie, period. It’s Hugh Jackman’s tenth on screen portrayal of Wolverine, three in his own personal films. This marks the end of an era; we watch Jackman and Patrick Stewart bow out, as their time as X-Men comes to close. What could have been another throw away comic book movie ends up having more in common with a John Wayne western than a mutant laced action flick. This is by far one of the best comic book movies to date and will go down in history as such.

Review: Oscar-nominated documentary shorts (…that I actually saw…)

Review: Oscar-nominated documentary shorts (…that I actually saw…)

I figured I’d sneak in one last post for the 2017 Oscars. Last year I saw all the nominated documentary shorts, which was a first for me. Normally the documentary categories are when I get up to use the restroom or grab a snack, but last year I actually cared who won. So I figured I’d do the same this year.

I was mostly successful. This year’s nominations were on the depressing side, but well-made, timely, and I think very important, especially considering the current political environment.

One of them I didn’t watch. Because reasons. (But maybe not the reasons you’d think.)

Review – Hell or High Water

Review – Hell or High Water

By guest columnist David Leninhawk.

Hell or High Water at times feels like a film from the 1970s. It has a simple story, but that story is told with a focus on interesting and well-drawn characters and with the smallest amount of formula necessary. It is dark in tone while being bright and hot in visuals. The acting is about as superb as can be. The violence is abundant, but not gratuitous.

This is a film too smart and well-made for the modern era of American moviemaking. If it weren’t for the constant visual references to the 2008 financial crisis (a plot involving mortgages and predatory loans, constant billboards advertising payday loans and foreclosure notices), one would be forgiven for not knowing this was a modern film.

Maybe you’re trying to watch all the Oscar-nominated movies, maybe you’re not. But if there’s one category you can check off the list, it’s the Original Songs.
