I thought I was over it

A while back, when I was doing some research for this post, I watched The Twilight Saga: Eclipse. It had been awhile since I’d read the books or seen the movies. Plus, I’d since come to the conclusion that while the story is good for what it is – romance – the writing wasn’t very […]

The Lion King (2019)

After the death of his father, young Simba leaves Pride Rock to run away from his responsibilities, only to realize that running away doesn’t fix everything, and he must return to take his place as the rightful king. The latest installment in Disney’s series of live-action remakes, The Lion King is good. It paid homage […]

Spider-Man: Far From Home

All Peter Parker wants to do is relax and enjoy his class trip to Europe. However, one does not simply stop being Spider-Man. Saving the world is a 24/7 job that waits for no one. Tom Holland is adorably awkward, which makes Peter Parker relatable. And that relatability humanizes superheroes as a whole – at […]

Yesterday

In a world where no one remembers the Beatles because of a random, worldwide, 12-second power outage, Jack Malik makes it his personal mission to bring their music back.

At first glance, the movie is exactly as advertised: Karen Zakarias (Anne Hathaway) tries to solicit her ex-husband, Baker Dill (Matthew McConaughey) to kill her current husband so she and her son can get away from his abuse. Like any thriller, things get […]

Pokémon: Detective Pikachu

Grown up and disenchanted by the world of Pokémon, Tim Goodman (Justice Smith) reluctantly helps a talking Pikachu (Ryan Reynolds) solve the mystery of his past. In a word, this movie is nostalgic. Anyone who grew up with Pokémon is going to love it; the world everyone wished existed is finally real. Pokémon GO! doesn’t […]

Avengers: Endgame

After the Infinity War left the world in ruins, the surviving Avengers have to undo the actions of Thanos to restore order to the universe. Despite this movie picking up where the last one left off, it’s not necessary to have seen Avengers: Infinity War before seeing this one, which is nice. What happened is […]
