Onward (2020) – Movie Review

There are so many things to admire about the emotionally-charged Onward, Disney/Pixar’s latest offering. Themes of grief, single parenthood, sibling relationships, and broken families trying to put things back together accompany a sharp social commentary about how much of our world we take for granted every day. The nimble voice cast and vivid animation more […]

Guardians of the Galaxy

Up until now, the majority of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) films have been fairly straightforward, serious affairs. For sure, there’s been a lot of humor bounding through them, most notably from Robert Downey, Jr’s self-deprecating performances in the Iron Man films and Marvel’s The Avengers. But for the most part, these movies focus largely […]
