Avengers: Infinity War

What I Liked: [SPOILER] (If you want to read it, just highlight the text to the right) Hey, Red Cool ALIENS reference! What I Disliked: [SPOILER] (If you want to read it, just highlight the text to the right) What a wimpy Spider-Man.

Ready Player One

What I Liked: Certain moments in the movie, like the Zemeckis Cube, as well as other moments featuring characters and movie items that touched all my nostalgia bones. The action scenes were a lot of fun. What I Disliked: Read the book years ago, and only mildly enjoyed it. I didn’t really care for overallContinue reading “Ready Player One”

A Wrinkle in Time (2018)

What I Liked: A female person of color in the lead role, along with her interracial family. A female person of color in the director’s chair. What I Disliked: The beginning of the movie moves too quick, not allowing us to truly visually understand what is happening and why. Characters (and the audience) are toldContinue reading “A Wrinkle in Time (2018)”

Black Panther

Trying a new format for our 1st year anniversary! Let us know what you think. Now, without further adieu… What I liked: Dialogue/banter between characters was fun and very natural. Introduction of different tribes and characters within tribes especially M’Baku and his Jabari tribe. Villain is layered and has legitimate reasons for his anger, givingContinue reading “Black Panther”

Star Wars: the Last Jedi

It’s LONG. There’s a particular sequence that I feel definitely slows down the movie. Multiple story arcs happening at the same time bog the whole thing down a bit. It’s the most artistically shot Star Wars movie that’s ever been made. #Cinema101 Rogue One had some impressive space-battle sequences, but the ones here destroy themContinue reading “Star Wars: the Last Jedi”

Stranger Things 2 (tv)

Oh hai, Encino Man’s Sean Astin. Starts off slow (because it now has to expand and spin multiple story arcs), but wraps up quite nicely. The kid who plays Will is a pretty damn good actor. We didn’t see enough of him in season 1 cuz…well……………….he was missing. Duh. New characters are introduced, while someContinue reading “Stranger Things 2 (tv)”

Blade Runner 2049

The first Blade Runner was a groundbreaking film in terms of its visuals. This one didn’t bring anything new to the table. Having said that, audiences and special effects have changed so much since 1982 that I think it would be hard pressed to do that. However, like that first movie, this newer movie movesContinue reading “Blade Runner 2049”

Shin Godzilla

I wouldn’t call myself a “fan” of Godzilla or the movies. I think the concept is cool, and the character is cool, but I don’t rush out to see or rent movies based on him. Having said that… There’s a new look to the creature, and I really enjoyed it. Feels like something more realistic.Continue reading “Shin Godzilla”
