Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

By | May 8, 2023 | Movies, Reviews

Have you ever cried because of a raccoon? Because you will. This review contains minor spoilers. James Gunn’s third and final installment of Guardians of the Galaxy may be the best movie of the saga. It focuses on the story of Rocket, whose past we get to see while the team tries to save him […]

Shazam! Fury of the Gods

By | Mar 17, 2023 | Movies, Reviews

After the surprising success of the first Shazam! film, the prospect of more adventures of the former Marvel Family (now I guess Shazamily), from director David F. Sandberg, was something to hold onto with pandemic delays, VFX-related delays, and several regime changes at all levels of the corporate ladder. So now, finally, Shazam! Fury of […]

Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania

By | Feb 20, 2023 | Movies, Reviews

The first two Ant-Man films were sweet, very family-friendly films that happened to be utterly pivotal to Avengers: Endgame. For the third installment, director Peyton Reed decided to raise the stakes, to make Scott Lang and the Pym-Van Dyne family’s next outing an epic Quantum Realm adventure, that would introduce one of Marvel’s most exciting […]

By | Nov 25, 2022 | Movies, Reviews

Slumberland, the new, live-action movie take on Winsor McCay’s early 20th century classic “Little Nemo in Slumberland,” starring Jason Momoa and Marlow Barkley, was largely dismissed by critics when it was released on Netflix last week. While the movie is certainly deeply flawed, it’s also a surprisingly touching tale about a child dealing with changes […]

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever

By | Nov 11, 2022 | Reviews

I have been trying to think about how to start this review for months. I mean, I just saw the movie yesterday but, there’s a lot of weight on this movie’s shoulders. The 30th film “has” to be a proper closing to phase four of the MCU which was partially seen as “underwhelming” just because […]

The 25th anniversary of “One Piece” has been a spectacular ride for fans of the series. The manga has entered its final saga, the anime has been firing on all cylinders, and now we cap the year off with the long-awaited release of One Piece Film: Red. I recently saw the film in IMAX with […]

Black Adam

By | Oct 21, 2022 | Movies, Reviews

In 2006, Dwayne Johnson was first approached about playing Black Adam in a live-action film. For comics-context, this was likely during the time that “52” was appearing in comic shops. This is before “Final Crisis,” before the New 52, before Man of Steel; hell, it was the year that Superman Returns hit theaters. This film […]

Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero

By | Aug 23, 2022 | Movies, Reviews

The Dragon Ball Super anime, movies, and manga have almost entirely focused on Goku and Vegeta, to the point where they’ve completely left the other characters behind in terms of plot and power level. But now, Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero turns the focus to other characters, primarily Gohan and Piccolo, letting us catch up […]
