    The Bad Guys

    ★★★½

    I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this film, but it was actually a very fun heist movie. I had a blast with all the antics in this film, it knows how to deliver an entertaining heist and does it at multiple points in the film. The animation is stunning, all the settings look great, and they found the perfect way to make the characters emote that fits with the more cartoonish nature of the film. One central issue…

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    In my opinion this film is without a doubt the funniest movie in the MCU, it’s the kind of joke a minute film that will keep any viewer entertained throughout the entire runtime. While I do think this films more comedic nature is mostly a good thing, one issue it does cause is that sometimes the film prioritizes the jokes over the plot. One example of this is how the movie treats the Warriors Three. They never played a huge…

    ★½

    This is a film I’ve been avoiding for the last 2 years and now, having finally watched it in preparation for the third film coming out next month, I wish I had continued avoiding it because needless to say, it wasn’t very good. One issue I noticed is that the film has way too many plotlines for a film like this, it’s not so many that the film is outright confusing, but there’s just a lot of things happening here…

    ★★½

    I’m not a big fan of disney channel original movies, but I think this one is one of the better films they’ve made. It tackles some deeper themes than most of these movies, and it does this in a way that isn’t intrusive or heavy handed, but actually serves the story quite well. It might be because my sister and cousins (who love disney channel movies) have been listening to the soundtrack on loop for the 4 years since this…

    ★★

    I’m not a big fan of this term, but this film is one of the most Oscar bait movies I’ve ever seen. It felt like it was trying to tackle some big things such as war, ptsd, and drugs, but it’s never clear what the film is trying to say about these things, they’re just in the film so the movie can look like it has some mature themes in it, but it never explores them in any sort of…

    Episode 4 Review:
    One can't help but notice how drastically this series has changed in tone over the past couple episodes. In the first 2 episodes, the lore and worldbuilding was put aside and the focus was on the disney channel style melodrama, but then in the last episode it switched and now the series is focusing more on the mythology behind everything, with the melodrama taking a backseat. I certainly appreciated this change as I found it got me…

    ★★

    I will admit that this wasn’t a disaster or anything, some jokes landed quite well and got a laugh out of me and a few of the kills were really well done, but that’s pretty much as far as this one went for me. I always feel bad when I hate on movies like this because more often than not it’s flaws are just a result of it’s low budget, but I have to be honest, and this is one…

    ★½

    This is without a doubt one of the most bland, forgettable horror films I have ever watched. There are some interesting ideas in the movies concept that could be great, but it doesn’t go far enough with any of it. I think the short runtime really hurts the film, it’s only about 90 minutes long but it really feels like it needs more than that for the story it’s telling. The biggest example of this is the films third act,…

    ★★★★★

    When I saw the trailer for this film, I was immediately intrigued as to what this film would be, it seemed like something I would love, mixing the incredible filmmaking of A24 with the modern concept of the multiverse seemed like an incredible idea and I was so excited to check this one out that it even found a spot in my top 20 most anticipated films of this year. I was fully expecting to like this movie, but I…

  • The Lost City

    The Lost City

    ★★★½

    I found this to be a pretty hilarious comedy, it is filled with jokes and moments that had me laughing out loud. The adventure itself that these characters are on is a bit generic and the film does play it safe and stick to quite a few clichés, but it still finds a way to be fun due to its great cast and sense of humor. Sandra Bullock, Channing Tatum, and Daniel Radcliffe are all great in their roles and…

  • Thor: The Dark World

    Thor: The Dark World

    ★★

    This is easily the most painfully mediocre film in the entire MCU. It tries to be a superhero action film, a drama, and a rom com all at once, but it doesn’t do any of these very well. Malekith is the worst villain in the MCU, he’s not given any personality or motivation and because of this he doesn’t pose a compelling threat to our heroes. The movie is mostly lacking the fun I want from this franchise and can…

  • Teen Titans Go! & DC Super Hero Girls: Mayhem in the Multiverse

    Teen Titans Go! & DC Super Hero Girls: Mayhem in the Multiverse

    ★★★

    As a movie, this was fine, certainly better than I was expecting, but in terms of being a crossover between the two shows, this was pretty bad. It’s pretty much a DC Super Hero Girls movie, the majority of the runtime is spent focusing on everything happening in their universe while the Teen Titans Go universe is really only cut to as occasional comic relief. Say what you want about Teen Titans Go, but I will always have a soft…
