Review: Captain Marvel: Powerful Woman, Dynamic Story

Captain Marvel has been among the most anticipated film, alongside Avengers but for me, held more weight as it is the first one to have an exclusively female lead. As a fan of comic books, I know how many truly stellar female characters Marvel has on its shelves. While it has as a company, not […]

Review: “Kubo and the Two Strings”: Immersive and Unusual.

Back when “Kubo and the Two Strings” was released, I had the chance to review it. While it is no longer streaming, it is available on Amazon and the DVD can be bought. With that being the case, I wanted to revisit this beautiful, animated film and tell you what I thought about it at […]

Review “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” Less Beasts, More Secrets

I loved the first Fantastic Beasts film. It had wonder, imagination and humor as well as a deft touch with complex issues. I adored Eddie Redmayne as Newt Scamander. His acting was quirky and brilliant. Well before the sequel was out, I was already excited to see it, hoping for more of the characters I’d […]

Review “Stillwater” Intriguing mystery, surprise ending

I was excited when I got the invitation to view this movie. I like Tyler Ritter and his part in the film, made me curious about this suspense. I also like a good mystery. Not only was I not disappointed but it was much more than I expected with excellent acting, great direction by Nino […]

Review: “The Incredibles 2” Worth the Wait

I’ve waited fourteen years for this sequel. I LOVE the original. It is one of the best pieces of animation along with some of the best voice actors around with one of the best superhero plots, better than some comic books and I wanted more a long time ago. Suffice to say, that this sequel […]

Review: “Deadpool” Irreverent and Full of Heart

I loved Deadpool. It was funny, it was messed up and it was all about love. It was one of the most popular movies of all time. Now, they’ve made a sequel. My first thought was not whether they could pull off a film as good as the original but how, how were they going […]

Review: “Avengers Infinity War” Poignant but Expected

Everything in the Marvel Universe has been building to this movie with lots of clues that characters and changes were planned. I know I was anticipating this movie with excitement but was unsure if the writers would be able to execute the diverse elements in a coherent fashion. With Thanos (Josh Brolin) being such a […]

Review “Pacific Rim Uprising”

One of the things I loved the most about the first Pacific Rim movie was the fights between the giant robots and killer Kaiju. Not going to lie, never expected more from the film than that and it did not disappoint, having a decent story and lots of interesting characters added in. I’ve loved Voltron […]

Review “Dark Crystal” Old Favorite, Beautiful As Ever

Since the movie premiered in 1982, I’ve loved this film. My husband is about the biggest fan you’ll ever meet. I have a copy of the original book and we own the collector’s edition of the film. So when Fathom Events announced that they would be having a special screening for the 35th anniversary, we […]

Review: “Gringo” A Trainwreck worth watching

When I watched the trailer, I thought this was going to be a funny movie and I am always up for a good comedy. Not only is David Oyelowo a great actor but I was looking forward to him playing a hapless American in trouble in Mexico. The cast looked great, the plot intriguing and […]
