The Super Mario Bros. Movie, hereafter simply called The Mario Bros. Movie, was inevitable. In the media landscape that brought us Sonic the Hedgehog and gave The Matrix another sequel, the most famous video game character besides Pac-Man was bound to get the silver screen treatment (for the second time—I haven’t seen the previous one). And it’s kind of miraculous it turned out as well as it did.

Let’s get two things out of the way regarding Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves. First off, I know some stuff about the game, but I’m not a hardcore TTRPG player. I got some of the abundant references—but a lot of them went right over my head, and my criticisms may be affected or skewed in some way by this. And second, it needs to be acknowledged from a pop culture history standpoint how cool it is that this film exists at all.
I try my best to avoid spoilers or discourse about a piece of media before I review it. But I already know that I’m the odd one out. Because I have no particularly strong issues with Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania—and the internet seems to have quite a simmering hatred.
Lightyear is a movie I didn’t want. I count on Pixar to do new things, and in my mind, Toy Story ended with its third installment, and there shouldn’t be more of it. And no, I haven’t seen the fourth one. But now that I’ve watched Lightyear, I shouldn’t have doubted Pixar as much as I did.
Nightbooks has a killer premise. It’s a modernized take on the Hansel and Gretel story that retains its disturbing and nightmarish aspects. It once again highlights how you can do stories for younger audiences that still maintain fear.
Artemis Fowl Is An Abysmally Bad Watch Artemis Fowl is a travesty. It is an insult to those that we’re excited about it, those that had hope for it, and is simply a bad watch. And, yes, I’m a fan of the books, and, also yes, I was disappointed with how poorly they adapted it….
If you haven’t already seen Wonder Woman, see it … now. We saw it on the 1st and again on the 3rd. Can’t wait to see it a third time. It’s an action packed, fun super hero movie with a great message – for everyone, not just girls. Patty Jenkins (the director) did an excellent…
Written and directed by The Wachowskis. Starring Channing Tatum, Mila Kunis, Eddie Redmayne, Sean Bean, Douglas Booth and Tuppence Middleton. PG-13, 127 minutes. Well, there goes two hours of my life I’ll never get back. Jupiter Ascending follows Jupiter Jones (Mila Kunis), an undocumented immigrant who works for her family’s maid service, as she discovers…
It’s true: we all have our demons…some more than others. How do you measure evil? And how can you pinpoint who’s truly wicked in a fog of lies and deceit? Alexandre Aja’s film, Horns (2014), poses these questions and much more in this new dark comedy with Daniel Radcliffe as the leading man. Horns is…
Guys…why did I decide to watch this movie? I mean, listen…it was on Hulu. You know, I was having one of those nights where I was just scrolling and scrolling. “Oooh, this looks interesting. Let’s click on it.” And what ensued was pure horror. Not even the good kind of horror. This was bad. Just…
Meanwhile, in Spain, people are probably sacrificing their souls to the devil instead of watching this film. People are setting themselves on fire and running through traffic instead of watching this film. I wish someone had told me that I would rather jump off of a cliff than sit through this film. Anyway, Deranged (2012) follows…
