Film Review: Toy Story 4
When Disney/Pixar first announced that Toy Story 4 was going to be made, I, like many other people were skeptical. Toy Story 3 had ended on such a high note, and on such a perfect ending. And when Disney/Pixar announced yet another sequel, a lot of people, including me, thought it was nothing more than another cash grab.
Film Review: Aladdin
Aladdin (2019) is yet another Disney live action remake trying to cash in on nostalgia from their vast animated library. Following in the footsteps of its animated predecessor is enough, yet it has to match up to such box office juggernauts as the live action versions of Beauty and the Beast, the Jungle Book, and even Alice in Wonderland. Coming off the flop that is Dumbo however, has Disney lost the thread? Or does Aladdin bring the streak back?
Pokémon Detective Pikachu
Pokémon Detective Pikachu brings the long running multimedia franchise into live action for the first time. Well, the people anyway; the Pokémon are obviously CG. The result is a surprising good noir thriller that brings the Pokémon dream to life.
John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum
John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum is one of the finest Hollywood action films of this decade, second only to Mad Max: Fury Road. Bold words, perhaps, but the sheer intensity, brutality, and frantic pace of the film all combine together to make an entertaining and stylish film.
Avengers: Endgame Review
Well, here it is. The film that concludes the Infinity Saga, the cumulation of 11 years of storytelling and world building, the sequel to the most successful movie of yesteryear, Endgame has finally hit the big screen. And oh boy, does it live up to the hype and deliver the goods.
Film Review: Shazam!
The DCEU may be dead but that hasn’t stopped DC from continuing to churn out films based on their IP. After the wildly successful Aquaman, can they continue the streak with their own Captain Marvel? It turns out the answer is yes; the company that gave us Superman, the Dark Knight and Wonder Woman still has great movies in them.
Captain Marvel Review
The 21st film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe has dropped and Carol Danvers makes her on screen debut in Disney’s Captain Marvel. How does it stack up in a supremely crowded franchise with almost two dozen films?
Alita: Battle Angel Review
Alita is that rarest of movies; a western adaptation of a Japanese manga/anime classic. I can count all of those that I know of on one hand: Speed Racer. Ghost in the Shell. Edge of Tomorrow. Dragonball Evolution. All these movies have made the leap from art to film, east to west. Most of them have been abysmal failures. Does Alita then fare any better?
