Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom | Movie Review

The Jurassic Park franchise holds an interesting place in my life. I was only six years old when the original was initially released and my parents went to see it in the theater. When they got back, they told me how scary it was and that I probably wouldn’t like it. Fast forward to the release of the VHS and my best friend at the time brought it over to watch with me. I still

Incredibles 2 | Movie Review

At one time Pixar was dedicated to only releasing original content, excluding the Toy Story and Cars franchises.  One of the reasons being their large pile of stories to pull from and the fact that animation takes so long.  They were able to coast off their wealth of ideas for years.  While they continued coming up with new, original content; the inherent desire to revisit familiar territory is oftentimes a necessity.  A studio can't avoid

Tag | Movie Review

Our greatest fear in life, outside of dying alone, is that we grow up to forget the enthusiasm of our youth.  We know the exact right choices to make and routinely execute them with expert precision.  It's like a litmus test for personal responsibility.  Get a career, get married, have kids and buy a home.  There may even be a dog or cat adoption in there somewhere.  At some point, you wonder if all this

An OG (Old Geek) Goes to MegaCon

Another Year, Another Con Well, MegaCon 2018 has come and gone, and for the fifth year, I managed to survive.  The older I get, the more of a triumph it is to type that sentence.  However, you didn’t come here to read the lamentations of a rapidly aging nerd; you came to live vicariously through said nerd and learn if maybe you should take the time and spend the money to make the trek to Orlando

Hereditary | Movie Review

When I first saw Poltergeist back in 1982, I had to sleep with the lights on, and with the closet doors firmly closed. I ran through darkened rooms, knowing that I was safe in the light. Ever since, I have loved the feel of a good, suspenseful, horror movie, that makes your mind play tricks on you and has you peering into the shadows to make sure there isn’t anything there, waiting for you. A

Ocean’s 8 | Movie Review

All-star cast? Check. Stylish setting? Check. Subtle humor? Check. Fantastic heist plot? Hmm, not so much. Ocean's 8 is the latest installment in the Ocean's franchise but swaps the eccentric male criminals for their equally masterminded female cohorts. While the acting, pacing, and lavish style and setting make this a fun caper film, the predictable plot and low stakes bring what could have been a superior heist film into the realm of blandness. Ocean's 8 stars Sandra

Hotel Artemis | Movie Review

At first glance, you might think Hotel Artemis takes place within the John Wick universe. You’d be wrong, but the films do share quite a bit. In John Wick criminals can go to the Continental Hotel to seek safe passage in a time of crisis. The Hotel Artemis serves the same purpose except that it’s a hospital, not a real hotel. When a criminal is injured and in need of immediate attention, they check-in at

Won’t You Be My Neighbor? | Movie Review

We live in a time in which it’s rare to last a single 24-hour period without witnessing some form of hate, usually first-hand. It’s a time when many people can’t go about their daily lives without getting harassed in some way. Through the dark clouds that line the skies of the modern world comes a beacon of light from the past. Won’t You Be My Neighbor is a documentary that will make you yearn for
