Growing up with both the Disney Renaissance and Revival Era of Disney Animation has provided a slew of magical memories and endless inspiration. With every new release, my family and I would go to our local theatre which has sadly closed and spend an afternoon lost in a world of wonder with a deeply moving … Continue reading ‘Encanto’ Beautifully Revives The Magic of Disney.
Just as the cinematic entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe have formed their own formula, it seems that the small-scale Disney+ entries have also found theirs. With a highly divisive 2021, Marvel released a set of nine projects, four of them winning mountains of praise and the other five being dismissed with annoyance and disappointment. … Continue reading ‘Hawkeye’ Hits The Bullseye On The MCU’s Rapidly Growing Problem.
In a time where Spider-Man is at his most saturated with multiple versions taking up the mantle all at once, it's a genuine treat to look back on past iterations and examine them through a new lens. With 'Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse' and especially 'Spider-Man: No Way Home', grief seems to be a central theme … Continue reading ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ Perfectly Encapsulates Peter Parker’s Tragedy.
Just like its two contrasting leads, Edgar Wright's 'Last Night in Soho' leaves you with two polarizing opinions. It's the type of movie that feels like it should be remembered fondly and to a certain extent does but it's also deeply flawed, so much so that it gets in the way of this becoming a … Continue reading Nothing Can Save ‘Last Night in Soho’ From Its Baffling Ending.
It is Tuesday, October 31st, 1978. As Halloween night bounds the small town of Haddonfield with tragedy, Michael Myers lurks the empty suburban streets to find his way back to his childhood home. Despite the carved pumpkins and ghoulish costumes, nothing sends a chill down Haddonfield's spine like the news of the babysitter murders that … Continue reading ‘Halloween Kills’: A Story Of Rage, Violence and Legacy.
Three years ago, I made the decision to watch 'A Star Is Born' over 'Venom' on their opening weekend. As I sat down to watch both 'Venom' movies this year, I realize I made the right choice. Three hours I will never get back, all for the satisfaction of being in the comic-book movie loop. … Continue reading ‘Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ Is Ultimately Non-Symbiotic.
The task of introducing a phenomenon like 'Squid Game' for a review is as dreadful as the show itself. How do you try to condense the world's hottest show without using words like 'inescapable' or without trying to sound pretentious and act like you didn't watch it purely because of peer pressure? We all know … Continue reading ‘Squid Game’ and The Nerve-Shredding Result Of Moral Manipulation.
It's 2021, we're almost done with the year yet Marvel continuous to have this choke-hold position on its fans as we talk about the MCU yet again (and twice more after this) with 'What If...?'. This boldly animated show takes to the multiverse to explore a reality far different from the one we have been … Continue reading ‘What If…?’ Falls Victim Yet Again to the MCU’s Formula.
The biggest lie this show has spread so far is that 'WOWOW, it's all right. Everything will be alright' bullshit in its opening. In the second half of its fifth season, 'My Hero Academia' introduces its darkest arcs yet and honestly, this might be one of my favourite seasons of 'My Hero' ever. As an … Continue reading My Hero Academia SPOILERS // Season 5: ‘My Villain Academia’ & ‘Endeavor Agency’ Arcs!
Working in a movie theatre this past summer has proven to be quite an interesting experience. Not only am I the only guy who genuinely gets excited when new posters are put up but I'm also invested in how movies are essentially brought to the public. It's so funny too because I would've given anything … Continue reading my job cost me the ‘No Time To Die’ ending | storytime
