Review: Suicide Squad

In a new approach to their cinematic universe, The WB and DC Comics turned away from their mainstream heroes and let the villains come out and play in a movie based on the popular comic of the same name: Suicide Squad. Trying so hard to just not be Marvel, the studio once again went in a totally different direction. This is coming after the universally disliked Batman v Superman, which of course came after the lackluster Man of Steel. Is the third time the charm?

No. No it isn’t.

What could have been an amazing film ends up being exactly what you now expect from a WB/DC movie: a chaotic mess.

Review: Terminator Genisys

Review: Terminator Genisys

This Fourth of July weekend you have many movie choices. You could take the family to enjoy Inside Out, or run from dinosaurs again with Jurassic World. Hell, get your girls or guys together and go watch Channing shake his ass once again in Magic Mike XXL. Or, what you should do, is go fight for the future once more with Arnold Schwarzenegger in Terminator Genisys. The new trend is the reboot-quel, the awkward new movie creature that resembles the movies we’ve loved. Resurrecting characters, catchphrases, and plots to lure us in. This new iteration annihilates all previous story threads with a bit (or a bunch) of time travel, so it can weave its own stories, unencumbered, and adding younger, sexier stars. Some are good, most are really bad, but for Terminator Genisys, it is a great welcome back to the franchise, giving it new life, kicking ass, and blowing everything up along the way.

Movie Issues: Divergent

Yet again, another post apocalyptic young adult novel turned movie is upon us, Divergent. Sharing the same name as the novel written by Veronica Roth and the movie being directed by Neil Burger. The world of Divergent is set 100 years in a futuristic Chicago, people are divided into five distinct factions based on their personalities: Abnegation, meant for the selfless; Amity, meant for the peaceful; Candor, meant for the honest; Dauntless, meant for the brave; and Erudite, meant for the Intelligent. On a given day each year, all sixteen-year-olds take an aptitude test that will tell them for which faction they are best suited. Beatrice “Tris” Prior discovers that she is Divergent, meaning she does not fit into any one faction, and soon she uncovers a sinister plot brewing in her seemingly perfect society.
