Aladdin (2019) – Quick Thoughts

The original Aladdin is my second favorite Disney movie of all time, (Number one is Lilo and Stitch, thank you for asking.) and after that abysmal marketing campaign, I was sure that this new remake would be an atrocity. Maybe it's because I had such low expectations, but I had a blast with this movie! … Continue reading Aladdin (2019) – Quick Thoughts

Pokemon: Detective Pikachu – Quick Thoughts

Detective Pikachu is an incredibly fun mix of Zootopia and Who Framed Roger Rabbit? that is a must see for even the most casual of Pokemon fans. I was entranced by the amazing CGI Pokemon and the world that they inhabited even when the plot started to feel a little familiar. The banter between Ryan … Continue reading Pokemon: Detective Pikachu – Quick Thoughts

Long Shot – Quick Thoughts

Long Shot is a great evolution of the 90's rom-com. It keeps those movies' spirit intact while bringing them into the modern world and addressing issues that are applicable to the rom-com audience of today. The chemistry between Seth Rogen and Charlize Theron is surprisingly sweet. It's nothing groundbreaking, but Long Shot is a well-written … Continue reading Long Shot – Quick Thoughts

The Missing Link – Quick Thoughts

LAIKA is one of my favorite movie studios working today. Coraline, ParaNorman, and Kubo and the Two Strings are some of the best animated movies I've ever seen. (Boxtrolls is fine.) But LAIKA has never done well financially. When they announced The Missing Link, an adventure movie with the studios first all-star cast, I thought … Continue reading The Missing Link – Quick Thoughts

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

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. I was hoping that the third and final entry would be just as enjoyable and poignant as the first two, but … Continue reading How to Train Your Dragon 3: The Hidden World – Quick Thoughts

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
