TRAILER – “Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw”

The trailer for the hotly-anticipated Fast & Furious spinoff starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Jason Statham has just dropped, and it looks… AWESOME. Both of their characters have been surprise game-changers since Johnson’s Luke Hobbs was welcomed into the Fast & Furious pantheon in Fast Five and Statham’s post-credits appearance in Furious 6.

The Jungle Book (2016)

From the second the lights go all the way down after the trailers are over and the theater’s “Feature Presentation” bumper has played, we’re brought into a world of nostalgia by Disney’s current logo having undergone a facelift. Well, it’s really a reverse-facelift; the 10-year-old, computer-animated, firework-laden Cinderella Castle opening has been entirely redone to […]

Avengers: Age of Ultron – Mike’s Review

During the opening sequence of  “Avengers: Age of Ultron”, in which our mega-heroes lay siege to a compound belonging to the sinister Hydra organization in a fictitious Eastern European country, I had a vision of the film’s writer/director Joss Whedon playing maniacally with action figures in his parent’s’ basement while mouthing the characters’ frequent wisecracks at […]
