Good morning, ladies and remaining gentleman! Last night’s Golden Globes felt a little…weird, didn’t it? Not just because Hollywood is experiencing a creeper reckoning, but also because the show was kept extremely tight. It ended at 10pm, which practically never happens. Sure, it’s refreshing because I went to bed before midnight, but for the first time, it felt like I was just watching people hand out awards. Like the entertainment was sacrificed for efficiency.

Tonight, Seth Meyers hosts the Golden Globes, and it’s sure to be an interesting night. Meyers is one of the better late-night hosts, and he’s excellent at tackling current events, thanks to his years hosting Weekend Update on SNL. But more importantly, we’ve seen a social and cultural shift in Hollywood over the last few months, as the rapey, abusive creeps who’ve been gatekeeping opportunity and progress for decades are slowly but surely being weeded out. And it will no doubt be an underlying theme of the evening. I’m not saying I hope someone starts some shit tonight, but like I’m also not not saying that…(*whispers* Burn it down).

You know how ABC Family (Yeah, I still call it that because “Freeform” is a dumb name) does their “25 Days of Christmas” movie lineup? Well, it’s garbage, and you should not watch that. It’s like the same 12 movies played at different times of the day so you think you’re getting a new movie each time. So I say ditch that, and check out my holiday movie watchlist! That is, of course, unless you like watching The Santa Clause eight times in one week, in which case I hate everything you stand for, and you should take your holiday hoobie whatty elsewhere.

So I’ve been bad about writing reviews this month. Because summer and shit. You know how it goes. Eating too much barbecue, doing things outside, occasionally getting super depressed thinking about how the inevitable heat death of the universe is coming for us all. The usual stuff. And hey! I managed to tackle Spider-Man: Homecoming, so that’s an accomplishment. But I still have drafts sitting open for Baby Driver, War for the Planet of the Apes, and Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets that, let’s be honest, I’m not going to finish. So I figured, screw it, let’s just drop a quick review for each into a single post. That way, we can get caught up! Continue reading “Slackers Gotta Slack: Let’s Play Movie Catchup!”
You have to appreciate a movie with a double entendre in its title. If you’ve seen Spider-Man: Homecoming, you know that the title partly references the film’s climax, in which Peter Parker attends his high school’s homecoming dance. But there’s also some cheekiness behind the name when you know that this Spider-Man movie was the first collaborative effort between Sony (which holds the rights to Marvel’s Spider-Man properties) and Marvel Studios. Because after Sony made a hot mess of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (and got into a shit ton of debt), they made a deal with Kevin Feige (the man behind Marvel Studios’ MCU) and brought Spidey into the fold for a few films. So, in a sense, Homecoming is Spider-Man coming home…to Marvel. Continue reading “Spider-Man: Homecoming Is Quirky Teen Comedy Meets Superhero Movie”
After I saw Transformers: Age of Extinction, I didn’t think it was possible for Michael Bay to make a worse movie. Because it was bad. Painfully bad. So much so that I thought he’d straight-up drop this franchise into the ocean like Megatron and pretend it never existed. I was wrong.
