Kong: Skull Island is a prequel of sorts, though probably not in the way you’re expecting. Then again, if you’ve kept up with, well, the internet, the secret’s been out for some time. Kong will face Godzilla in 2020, so Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ Kong: Skull Island is the prequel to Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla. We’re about to get a franchise of monster fights that will hopefully provide more knock-down-drag-out awesomeness than other “versus” movies we’ve seen of late.

As you probably know, Hugh Jackman said this is the last time he’s ever playing Wolverine. He’s played the character for 17 years and has been in all nine X-Men movies (Some were only cameos). For his final performance, he gives us Logan. Talk about going out with a bang. Continue reading “Logan Is the Best X-Men Movie (So Far)”
Doctor Strange is definitely Marvel’s “weirdest” film to date—though considering we’ve already seen two Thor films and Guardians of the Galaxy, it shouldn’t be that weird. Continue reading “Doctor Strange: A Trippy Origin Story Featuring the Internet’s Boyfriend”
What a hilarious garbage movie. It’s so bad that it’s fun (or it had enough action distractions to make me feel like it was fun).

The Accountant is one of those movies. Continue reading “The Accountant Is Basically Math Batman”
The Magnificent Seven is one of those remakes that didn’t need to happen (because the 1960 version of the same name starring Yul Brynner and Steve McQueen is a classic). But since it did happen, I’m glad it’s nothing like most of the remakes we’ve seen. That is, this at least held up the entertainment end of “mindless entertainment.” Continue reading “The Magnificent Seven: It’s All Shoot ‘Em Up, Blow ‘Em Up”
There’s a lot of internet nonsense surrounding Suicide Squad. Film critics released scathing reviews after the media embargo lifted, and fans got pissed, petitioning Rotten Tomatoes (You geniuses know Warner Bros has ownership stakes in the site, right?) and boosting ratings for Suicide Squad on iMDB, despite haven’t actually seeing the movie. And now that Suicide Squad is doing well at the box office (by August standards), people are like “Critics are worthless!” *sigh* Continue reading “Suicide Squad Has Its Moments, But It Wastes So Much Potential”
