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 […]

Review: “A Wrinkle in Time” Beautiful Message But Missed Opportunities

I will begin with saying there was no way I was going to miss this movie. I fell in love with the book as a twelve year old, connecting deeply with Meg, the first female character whose imperfections and beauty resonated with me, allowing me to learn who I was as a person. In addition, […]

Review: Prodigy

When I watched the trailer, I was intrigued. The premise of a battle of wits between a psychologist and a little girl seemed interesting. So I was tentatively hopeful. I’ve watched a fair number of independent films and not all of them live up to their promise. After watching the film, I can say this […]

Review Black Panther

Review Black Panther One of my husband’s and my favorite heroes of the Marvel Universe is Black Panther. While we aren’t as familiar with the comics, we’ve loved the character in animated films and some of the Avenger books. We were hoping that the film would be true to the character and have a Wakanda […]

Review: Maze Runner The Death Cure

Review “Maze Runner: The Death Cure” I absolutely wanted to see this movie. I’ve seen the first two in the series and fell in love with the characters, enjoying the post-apocalyptic world. The young actors are incredible, it has a diverse cast and the mystery has kept me on the edge of my seat. So […]

Review: Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

Review “Jumanji:Welcome to the Jungle” I love Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. He’s an incredible actor who can do action and be funny. I also happen to love that he’s a big sci-fi geek. Because of him, I was totally expecting the new Jumanji film to be fun. I was concerned how well it would fit […]

Review: The Shape of Water

The Shape of Water A Modern Fairytale Do you love fairytales? I do, so much so that they were my only form of reading in my early years. Fairytales aren’t always pretty and sweet, like Disney. The true fairy tales are dark, forbidding, and teach us lessons about life. Guillermo Del Toro has mastered this […]
