Mile 22 | Movie Review

Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg are becoming a fairly common director/star duo in action films. In recent years the pair have teamed up for Lone Survivor and Patriots Day, which were both well-received for the most part. Now they’re back with another action film, Mile 22. STX Films has positioned Mile 22 as the start of a trilogy for Wahlberg and Berg, and while there’s definitely room for this potential franchise to grow, the movie-going

Alpha | Movie Review

Actor Kodi Smit-McPhee has been in the film business for some time now. Originally born in Adelaide, South Australia in 1996, Kodi began acting when he was only ten. He mostly appeared in smaller roles in numerous Australian films and TV shows up until he played Guy Pearce’s son in the post-apocalyptic film The Road. It was that role that allowed filmmakers to see his true acting potential and make him a sought after child

Crazy Rich Asians | Movie Review

Going into Crazy Rich Asians, it’s not a movie you would think most people would enjoy. Is it a romantic comedy that caters more to women? Does it only appeal to Asians due to cultural reasons? How could a title like that appeal to the average moviegoer? If you found yourself going over any of these thoughts in your head, you would be severely mistaken. Crazy Rich Asians is one of the sleeper hits of

The Meg | Movie Review

With the craze of Shark Week and the Sharknado series, it was only a matter of time before another shark movie made it to the big screen. The Meg is that movie, but it’s not Jaws, Deep Blue Sea or even Sharknado. The Meg is an interesting mix of previous shark films that’s entertaining enough, but probably not what people were hoping it would. Read on to find out more in our review of The

BlacKkKlansman | Movie Review

BlacKkKlansman is the true story of an African-American police officer who successfully infiltrated the Ku Klux Klan in the late 70s. While it’s directed by Spike Lee, it feels more like a traditional film rather than a Spike Lee Joint. There’s a moderate amount of humor, and quite a few high points throughout the film, but it misses the beat more than a few times. Let’s dive into the depths of the KKK with our

Christopher Robin | Movie Review

Some people strive for adventure. They look for ways to get their hearts racing, and to find things they’ve never done before. On the other side of that fence, there are those that find comfort in the familiar. They are happy to live in the world they have but around them, tranquil and peaceful. And then there's Winnie the Pooh, who looks for that peace and comfort, but tends to find himself on the best

Mission: Impossible – Fallout | Movie Review

Action movies have always been big summer draws for the box office. The trend didn’t slow down with the surge in superhero films, many of which fall into the action movie genre. When the Mission: Impossible franchise made a triumphant return in 1996, it felt like new life was given to the genre. Action star Tom Cruise helped make the five Mission: Impossible films feel like unique experiences at the box office. Now, with the

Teen Titans GO! to the Movies| Movie Review

In a world where superheroes are a dime a dozen... one group stands out among the rest... because they're totally, hilariously immature. Teen Titans GO! to the Movies is a fun and much needed escapade within the DC universe of characters. Starring the titular characters from the popular Teen Titans GO! cartoon series, this movie keeps it light and sassy with self referential humor and a ton of fourth wall breaking. The movie focuses on Robin

A look at ANIME EXPO 2018 and beyond…

Anime Expo returned to the Los Angeles Convention Center earlier this month for its 27th year, and it looked like the gargantuan event was trying to tackle the difficulties of being “America’s Largest Anime Convention”, while still trying to provide their attendees with the biggest and best time possible. While the pure size of the convention alone makes it rather unwieldy, Anime Expo 2018 appeared to make a conscious effort to improve the attendee's quality
