The Book of Boba Fett: Chapter 1 follows everybody’s favorite bounty hunter on Tatooine after he takes over Jabba’s Palace. “Jabba ruled with fear, I intend to rule with respect.” – Boba Fett Here’s what we know about the series: it is set within the timeline of The Mandalorian and Ahsoka. My guess is that it takes place between season 2 and season 3. We know that Boba Fett (Temuera Morrison) does not get his Mandalorian…

The Wolf of Wall Street: An Epic Masterpiece

The Wolf of Wall Street, starring Leonardio DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, and Margot Robbie, is an epic visual storytelling masterpiece from Martin Scorsese. Martin Scorsese and masterpiece are words that seem to go together every few years. Looking back on its 8th anniversary, this film is no exception. With the filmmaker supervising a new film transfer, the picture has never been more beautiful. Both Scorsese and DiCaprio have a history so there’s a shorthand in their…

Spider-Man: No Way Home Is Epic Fun

Spider-Man: No Way Home is an epic film but you’re best off going into the film knowing very little about it because it’ll ruin the fun. If you know the Marvel films by now, you already know to stay for the end of the credits. Outside of this, I’m going to do the challenging thing and try to write about the film without spoiling it. The film continues right where Spider-Man: Far From Home leaves…

The Lion King Is My Favorite Film This Year

The Lion King brings one of Disney’s most beloved animated films to life in visually stunning photo-realistic CGI adaptation. I’ve kept a close eye since Disney decided to update their library in a contemporary manner.  I remember how impressed I was with The Jungle Book‘s Oscar-winning visual effects in 2016.  Where these two Jon Favreau-directed films differ are that there is no motion-capture performances in The Lion King.  It would have surely made a difference…

Spider-Man: Far From Home Starts A New Chapter
