Shazam! – Quick Thoughts

Whoopsies! Bad opinion alert! Avert your eyes! Shazam! is my favorite superhero movie of the year so far. Even though it is first and foremost a comedy, (and it sure delivers on that front) Shazam! has a really effective emotional center to it. The depiction of the foster family feels genuine and it grounds the movie … Continue reading Shazam! – Quick Thoughts

Captain Marvel – Quick Thoughts

A perfectly fine origin story that is in line with the original Thor in terms of tone and quality. Space Ben Mendelson and young Nick Fury take it up from a meh to a good. Pretty weak compared to the other movies in Phase 3. 7/10  

How to Train Your Dragon 3: The Hidden World – Quick Thoughts

I love the original How to Train Your Dragon to death. It's a 10/10 in my eyes. The sequel wasn't as good, but it had amazing action and an ending that packed a punch.

The art style was striking, the original music was banging, and the main character was finally Miles Morales! I was instantly in love. Some people were a little more … Continue reading Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is the best superhero movie of all time. Here’s why.

Once Upon a Deadpool Movie Review: A Chopped Up and Muddled Deadpool 2 that Remains Fun

Once Upon a Deadpool is weird. And not in the way I expected. It is a PG-13 version of Deadpool 2 portrayed as a storybook that Deadpool is reading to Fred Savage in a perfectly recreated set of The Princess Bride. That's weird. The weird that I didn't expect was the odd choices of censorship. … Continue reading Once Upon a Deadpool Movie Review: A Chopped Up and Muddled Deadpool 2 that Remains Fun
