Instead, the trilogy ends beingContinue reading “‘Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker” Spoiler-Free Review: This Finale Falls Flat, Despite Having All the Right Pieces”

‘Frozen II’ Review: A Safe, Disappointing Sequel to an Overrated Franchise

I remember the lead-up to the release of the original Frozen. It’s always an exciting event when Disney releases another musical fairy tale film. It was a Disney musical, not unlike Tangled which came out just a few years prior, but apparently, Disney did not have high hopes for it. But after a great teamContinue reading “‘Frozen II’ Review: A Safe, Disappointing Sequel to an Overrated Franchise”

Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu! & Let’s Go Eevee! are the subjects of much controversy, a reoccurring theme for Pokemon games as of late. I understand why, and the reasoning will be discussed, but the negatives hardly detract from what is a great nostalgia trip for Pokemon veterans like me, but will also serve as aContinue reading “‘Pokemon: Let’s Go Pikachu & Let’s Go Eevee’ Review: A Stunning Remaster, and a True Nostalgia Trip”

‘Jojo Rabbit’ Review: A Fine Line Between Funny Satire and Meaningful Themes

Jojo Rabbit is Taika Waititi’s latest film. After the success of Thor: Ragnarok, he has left the superhero movie space for a while (until the next Thor movie) and has given us a satirical comedy that is jam packed with both humour and more deep and meaningful subject matter. Jojo Rabbit walked a fine lineContinue reading “‘Jojo Rabbit’ Review: A Fine Line Between Funny Satire and Meaningful Themes”

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part is a film that I’ve been waiting for since the first movie released. I found the first film to be one of the most imaginative animated films ever.

‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ Review

When I first heard the announcement of this movie a few years back, I was intrigued. An animated Spider-Man film with the great Phil Lord and Chris Miller serving as producers and co-writers is a combination you simply cannot go wrong with.
