Ant-Man and The Wasp Review
Twice in a row we have an Ant-Man film after a big Avengers film event. If Ant-Man 3 gets greenlit, it'll probably be after a Young Avengers movie or something. But in seriousness, who'd have thought the first Ant-Man would be a fun surprise? Not that I doubted it from the getgo but it was really something especially given the highly publicized controversy of Edgar Wright leaving the project and Peyton Reed taking over. But that was a film Peyton Reed had to work on at the last minute with other people's material tailor made for Wright. So with this film, Reed is finally allowed to put his own touches and it showed. Throughout the film, it's

Incredibles 2 Review
2004 was a special time for me, at least in regards to film. Prior to November, I had just seen the best Spider-Man film (well, before that was taken over by Spider-Man: Homecoming) and even despite seeing whatever films during and after that year passed like Saw, a little film by a man named Brad Bird who ended up working at Pixar despite the failure of The Iron Giant, rocked everyone's world. Mine included because The Incredibles was the film that got me into becoming a film buff. I wanted to make movies and I still do. The film somehow spoke to me in all the right ways. And it's even a film I saw twice in the theater. So like everyone els

Deadpool 2 Review
Whether you like him or not, the infamous merc with a mouth returns for another go around. And really, one of the only reasons I can think of the first Deadpool making an impact as he did at the box office back in 2016 is that Fox managed to take a chance on this (on the terms of executives anyway) bizarre character and his quirk of being a killing, fourth wall breaking mercenary. Keep in mind, Fox canned his movie originally but the leaked test footage provoked a major positive response before Fox execs decided to give it a shot. I doubt any of them thought much about it until the numbers came in. Now I know not everyone liked the first mov

Avengers: Infinity War Review
10 years. 10 years ago, a producer named Kevin Feige became involved in a goal-involved with Marvel to start up a film studio. Basically, the comic book company wanted to make their own movies. But there was one problem, their heavy hitters like Spider-Man and the X-Men were with Sony and Fox respectively. What could they do? Well, after hopping from studio to studio, Marvel bought back the movie rights to Iron Man from New Line Cinema, hired Jon Faverau of Elf fame to direct and come 2008 was the release of the film version of Iron Man. Opening to rave reviews, audience praise and huge box office numbers. And ever since then, we have The Inc

A Quiet Place Review
Between Jordan Peele and John Kransiski and along with Danny McBride writing the next Halloween film, I'm curious if we're going to see a slew of comedians making serious Horror films. Oh no problem with that, I welcome it entirely. Just that I find it to be a fascinating trend. But then again it makes sense given Horror and Comedy have a long history with each other. And it's not like it was the first time comedians left their mark on the Horror genre. Though guys like Abbott and Costello are more of the stars than actual directors but I digress. In this case, John Kransiski (The Office) has made his directorial debut and what better way to

Black Panther Review
Black Panther: Jack Kirby has said that he created Black Panther because he felt he had too many white heroes. He wanted to create a black superhero-one hailing from Africa. Picture this, a superhero who is the king of a country in African-technologically advanced from here to kingdom come and untouched, never colonialized by white people. Appearing in an issue of Fantastic Four, he proved himself by taking down the entire Fantastic Four before eventually becoming not only an Avenger but a superhero in his own right-hey, dude even took on the KKK. How cool is that? And yeah, there were attempts to bring T'Challa himself to the screen-most no

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Review
What's funny about this is that a decade ago, I once looked at an IMDB page where it looked like a Jumanji sequel was getting made but eventually that turned out to be Zathura. But that didn't stop Sony from trying to back into the well. What do you do when go after 80's nostalgia? Target the 90's. Okay, technically Jumanji was based on the picture book of the same name back in 1981 before being adapted into the Robin Williams starring film in 1995. It has its fans but with me looking back, it's fun but also mediocre. The thing is, among the glaring issues is that given the book was about the kids, because of the fact that the 1995 film had a

The Shape of Water Review
“Since childhood I’ve been faithful to monsters — I have been saved and absolved by them. Because monsters, I believe, are patron saints of our blissful imperfection.” - Guillermo del Toro For a lot of people including myself I admit, we want a special someone. Someone who can understand you, believes in consent, relate to, anything. It's not easy finding love yes. But for a mute woman, she found love in a way she didn't really expect but stuck to it with a natural attraction. If you watched the film already while reading this, you probably know where I'm going with this. Guillermo del Toro has a knack for making mo

Star Wars: The Last Jedi Review
I'll attempt to refrain from spoilers but suffice to say, The Last Jedi not only is proven better than The Force Awakens or the entire original trilogy combined but also the most strongest Star Wars film to date. The Force Awakens was designed to get audiences back into their good graces after the much derided prequel trilogy. Films that had good ideas but George Lucas was in over his head and it's evident other people were better off handling his ideas from here to kingdom come; a good idea man but lacks in execution. The Force Awakens yes had moments that rehash A New Hope but I feel it's still a very good film with strong characters and t

Coco Review
What's funny about me seeing this is that recently, I ended my Horror movie marathon on Day of the Dead (Dia De Muertos). I know, I know, it's not exactly a scary holiday but it appeals to me based on the dead aesthetic, you know? I remember first knowing about it via that one episode of Lizzie McGuire, the Halloween episode that revolved around it and it involved the Miranda character played by Lalaine and her heritage around that holiday and it was about punking the stereotypical popular bitch character to give her a taste of her own medicine after insulting her culture. And I just remembered all that while writing this, wow. That aside, I
