  • The Green Knight

    The Green Knight

    ★★★★½

    While many films from A24 have had a fantastical edge, The Green Knight seems to be their first venture into complete fantastical territory with an adaption of the Arthurian legend of Lord Gawain. Despite my lack of knowledge regarding the source material, the film seems to be one of the few films to break away from the current summer blockbusters despite its epic-sounding nature. To be clear, The Green knight is not a grand adventure in the same vein as…

  • Jungle Cruise

    Jungle Cruise

    ★★★

    Jungle Cruise is Disney's latest venture in building a franchise from an established theme park ride, heavily inspired by the imaginative spirit of Indiana Jones and The Mummy. While the inclusion of Dwanye Johnson and Emily Blunt had piqued my interest, I could not help but compare the visuals to the incredibly disappointing run of Pirates sequels. Despite tampered expectations, I can affirm that Jungle Cruise is the best live-action Disney film I have seen in quite a long time,…

    Joe Bell

    ★★½

    I cannot express how many times I felt like I had already watched Joe Bell, a drama that only manages to find inspiration in it's message as opposed to the uninspired execution on display. This is a film more focused on gaining award nominations than anything else, a passionless mish-mash of bittersweet and depressing imagery designed to make the audience believe what they are seeing carries genuine emotional weight. Instead, it devolves into a tired retread covering the bare minimum…

    Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins

    ★★½

    It has become like clockwork for Paramount to reboot an 80's cartoon every few years in an attempt to revitalize the property, and while the live-action Transformers and TMNT both saw worldwide success in previous years, it seems that G.I. Joe is the only franchise to consistently see diminishing returns. The worldwide appeal of an invincible group of American soldiers may not be on the same level as a dinosaur robot or ninja turtle, but the fact that Snake Eyes:…

  • Black Widow

    Black Widow

    ★★½

    Black Widow is everything I expected it to be, which unfortunately was my biggest fear going into Cate Shortland's heavily delayed standalone film. The MCU was a huge part of my childhood growing up, and it is hard to believe that Scarlett Johansson has been in this role since I was nine-years old. Her journey from lonely assassin to becoming part of the Avengers family was a complex arc, and although the idea of a standalone feature seemed fascinating about…

    Space Jam: A New Legacy

    The original Space Jam was a definite product of it's time, and while I personally could not connect with it having grown up in the late 2000's, I can at least say that it seems to have come from a place of genuine creativity and the desire to entertain young fans of Looney Tunes and Michael Jordan. There has been an increasing pattern of films made with the singular objective to sell merchandise, and while something like The Lego Movie…
