Thor: Ragnarok

The third movie for Thor goes in the same direction as Guardians of the Galaxy. Comedic timing and an 80s theme is what makes this movie worth watching. The plot is quite huge but is buried in bombastic and colorful battle scenes; which is not necessarily a bad thing but is actually quite Marvel-ous. Thor: […]

New Besson is a colorful spectacle

Remember The Fifth Element? Then make sure to watch this spectacle; another Luc Besson creation based upon the French comic books Valerian and Laureline. Valerian and the city of a thousand planets is the introductory tale of hopefully more films to come. An explosive start is anticipated by the silent showing of the various production […]

Perfect, little, La La Land

What does it take to make a movie perfect? A question that has no truthful answer; mostly due to the fact that part of whether a movie is perfect is whether or not it appeals to you. For La La Land the biggest obstacle for most people is that it is first and foremost a […]

Inferno shines a new light on Brown adaptations

Inferno is rather different from the previous two Dan Brown adaptations. Most notably, there was more time pressure to solve the puzzle Langdon has landed himself in. Robert Langdon has a knack for finding situations in which he becomes the one that is being chased. In Inferno a combination of these two results in a […]

Rookie mistakes in Suicide Squad

Highly anticipated. The first numbers that rolled in even before its first weekend showed exactly how highly anticipatedĀ Suicide Squad was. Is it possible to live up to such expectations? DC had something to make up for after the failedĀ Batman vs Superman, however it is highly doubtful whether this was the right answer. The story is […]

Finding Dory barely stays afloat

With sequels the big question is always whether or not the film makers succeed in creating something new or just present the same concept with some minor adjustments. Pixar has had some success in the sequel department; notably with Toy Story 3. Innovation wise they did a great job with Cars 2 to bring a […]

Rollercoaster of sheer dumb luck

An interesting match, Russel Crowe and Ryan Gosling. The trailer already had some fun bits it, and when this happens the fear of those jokes being the best ones in the entire movie creeps to the surface. However, The Nice Guys manages to have some hilarious moments alternated with absurd action scenes. It’s all very […]

X-men reunite!

With a timeline that has been completely reset, thus eliminating the first three X-Men movies, it was vital the producers got it right this time. Unfortunately, I am not completely convinced they have gotten it right. Apocalypse is entertaining, full of action scenes and barely knows a moment of rest. However, much like Spiderman 3, […]

Bastille Day is a pleasant surprise

With all the trilogies, supernatural universes, book adaptations, and Disney spectacles, a good old fashioned mind-numbing action movie is just the thing the movie industry needed. Rising star Idris Elba is bound to draw the attention of some moviegoers, and for good reason. Bastille Day manages to avoid many mistakes made by action movies. Making […]
