So, the Oscar nominations came out on Monday. Unfortunately, like all of us, I was stuck in school at the time of the announcements, but I was able to stay away from social media for the whole day so I could have a genuine reaction. To be honest, it’s safe to say that I’m a little disappointed. Su...

Normally, I would say that after a month of Oscars hopefuls and massive blockbusters, it’s nice to start the year off with a sub-par movie. This is the one year that doesn’t quite fit that bill, it seems. Dolittle is directed by Stephen Gaghan and stars Robert Downey Jr. as the legendary Dr. Dolittle, a...

In the past, I’ve made no bones about the fact that I’m not much of a fan of anything to do with Disney. Whether it’s Star Wars or Marvel, it’s something that I normally don’t get excited for. However, this might be a different story. Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella tells the classic story of a...

Many people are familiar with the song that plays at the end of The Spongebob Squarepants Movie, called Ocean Man. A short, nonsensical tune with the narrator addressing the titular Ocean Man about various things. The song is upbeat, fast, and certainly doesn’t overstay its welcome. This song received...

When Robin William’s beloved Jumanji was said to be getting a sequel, I was fairly skeptical. I loved the announced cast and pitched concept, but it seemed too real for something to go wrong. I ended up really enjoying Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. However, I was sure that it would end there. Th...

Seeing as this movie is coming from the director of Logan, audience members can expect something great. I was just praying that it was better than Midway. Ford v Ferrari is directed by James Mangold and stars Matt Damon as Carroll Shelby, a former race car driver who was forced to retire after...

Well, 2019 is finally over (thank God). Although the latter half of the year showed some signs of life with several high grades, there were ultimately too many disappointments to label 2019 as one of the better years for cinema in recent memory. However, there were still quite a few films that stood ou...

For a war movie coming out on the weekend of Veterans Day, a day reserved for paying respect to the brave men and women who fought and died for our freedom, it’s not too much to ask for the movie to have that same respect, right? Midway, directed by Roland Emmerich, stars a massive cast that woul...
