I Don’t Understand the Hate for Ghost in the Shell

Over this past weekend, I finally dragged myself out of the cave I’ve been hiding in since November and saw Ghost in the Shell. I’ve only seen bits and pieces of the anime (which is a shame, I know), but I generally liked what I saw of the anime and I also love Cyberpunk. You’d think this would be a perfect movie for me, right? Well, I lagged a bit in seeing it because of the insane amount of hate it’s been getting online as well as by critics. Currently, Rotten Tomatoes has an accumulated critic score of just 46%, … Read more…

X-Men: Apocalypse – My Spoilery Reasons For Liking It

The latest entry in Fox’s superhero reboot debuted to an audience, and critical reception, that has recently seen the best and the worst of superhero movies within a few mere months. After the rollercoaster of emotions that was transitioning from Batman v. Superman to Civil War, it’s understandable that both critics and fans may be weary of yet another superhero movie produced by Not-Disney.

Rogue One Trailer: What Does It All Mean?!

Rogue One is one of the most highly anticipated movies of the year, especially since J.J. nailed the execution of Episode 7.

Star Wars Episode 7 is coming in three and a half months. If you’re like me, the first half of that sentence already makes you smile like a gleeful idiot. But then that second part, it’s coming so son, and that just makes you heart jump a beat. New Star Wars is coming guys, and it’s being done by people who know how to make good movies. Not that I’m saying the prequels were awful, but let’s just say that Lucas was given a little too much breathing room with those movies. But man oh man is there a ton … Read more…

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

I know what you’re thinking: “Yeah, yeah, yeah. I heard that movie is awesome. It’s awesomeness is all over the place. Whatever.” But do you truly know how good this movie is? If you haven’t seen it, then you don’t. Which is why you should see it. But I want to give you more than just vague reasons that may or may not resemble some semblance of logic. This is not a review, because I don’t do reviews. When people do reviews, they try REAALLY hard to find this that are bad about something because they want to seem unbiased. … Read more…
