Moana - Review

   Is Disney attempting to rule the world? I’m asking out of sheer curiosity because it certainly seems like they are. Between Star Wars, Marvel and Pixar, Disney had no shortage of success and yet their animation studio continues to build better and better films as the years go by. Adding to their repertoire of animated features, Disney grabs another hit out of the air with Moana.

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them - Review

   There are very rare times where prequels work, just ask George Lucas, but when they’re done correctly, they can both expand the previous films while creating something entirely new. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is a return to the Wizarding World that was met with some hesitation, despite the creator of the world, J.K. Rowling, writing the film. After five years away, is the return to the world of wizards and witches worth the wait?

The Edge of Seventeen - Review

      It’s quite interesting how particular films can completely sneak up on everyone and become one of the better releases of the year. There seems to be one every year and it just happens to be The Edge of Seventeen in 2016. Harkening back to the days of classic John Hughes coming of age stories, The Edge of Seventeen brings those themes into a 21st century atmosphere and it works incredibly and impeccably well.

Arrival - Review

   The time has come to really consider which films are going to make the cut for the coveted Best Picture crown when it comes time and Arrival may as well be a lock for one of the nominations. With a director that’s making great films as of late, an extremely talented composer and director of photography, and a stellar lead actress, Arrival was all but guaranteed to be good, but the results are truly magnificent.

Doctor Strange - Review

      A consistent track record is so hard to maintain over years of once franchise let alone multiple that converge into one large universe, and yet Marvel has done it for fourteen films now. Even with the deck stacked against them, whether it’s a new character, a little controversy, or a completely insane concept, Marvel appears to have another hit on their hands. Another year, another franchise, and with the next few years planned ahead, Marvel shows no sign of slowing down.
