Kong: Skull Island

This review started at a 2.5-star rating, but I’ll let you in on a little secret: the more I think about and analyze the movie, the more I like about it. At first, I thought there are major issues keeping this film from being absolutely great, but some of those issues are also part of […]

10 Cloverfield Lane

Paramount Pictures and producer J. J. Abrams blew minds away in January 2016 when they attached the trailer for 10 Cloverfield Lane to fellow Paramount film 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi.

That’s what it seems like we’re supposed to glean from Joel and Ethan Coen’s glimpse “Inside Llewyn Davis”, a wistfully downbeat, tragically comical film that transpires during […]

Monsters University

I really like it when prequels have some fun with the mythos presented by the original film. The Thing from 2011 was a good example of this, dovetailing nicely into John Carpenter’s original The Thing from 1982. Monsters University, the latest from Disney/Pixar, builds into 2001’s Monsters, Inc. quite well, helping to set up characters […]
