Avengers: Age of Ultron – The Road to Endgame

Avengers: Age of Ultron is the penultimate film of Marvel’s Phase 2 and paves the landscape for phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. This film is every bit as epic of an installment as the initial team-up in 2012.  Since the collapse of S.H.I.E.LD., the Avengers have been busy at work in defeating H.Y.D.R.A.  This time, they’re taking out Baron Wolfgang von Strucker’s (Thomas Kretschmann) base in Sokovia.  It just so happens that this…

Captain America: The Winter Soldier – The Road to Endgame

Captain America: The Winter Soldier is the most political film by far for Marvel as Chris Evans makes his return to the role on the big screen. It’s been some two years following the Battle of New York and Steve Rogers (Chris Evans) is living in Washington, D.C.  It is a quiet life for the man out of time.  He also continues to adjust to this new reality.  He’s become friends with military veteran Sam Wilson…

The Avengers – The Road to Endgame

Marvel’s The Avengers is the team-up movie that we’ve been waiting for and it’s absolutely everything we wanted it to be. Loki wants to rule Earth.  There’s really no other way to put it.  After promising to turn over the Tesseract to the Chitauri, they will provide him with an army.  Oh Loki, don’t go making promises you can’t keep.  It probably will not end well. Back on Earth, Dr. Selvig (Stellan Skarsgård) is continuing his…

Unicorn Store: Brie Larson’s Directorial Debut

Originally premiering in Toronto, Unicorn Store makes for an impressive debut for actress-turned-first-time filmmaker Brie Larson. If you’ve seen Captain Marvel, you already know that Larson commands great chemistry with Samuel L. Jackson.  When you see this film, you know why.  It’s as if the two have them have continued from where they left off.  Clearly, the two of them are not playing Carol Danvers and Nick Fury in this film.  Nor is this a…

Captain Marvel: The Superhero We Need Right Now

With Brie Larson kicking ass in the titular role, Captain Marvel gives us a new superhero as the Marvel Cinematic Universe pushes forward. The introduction of Carol Danvers to the Marvel Cinematic Universe comes during a very trying time.  We only have an idea of who survived The Snap but so many more are out there.  The ending of Avengers: Infinity War shows that both Danvers and Nick Fury previously met.  This film does a…

The Incredibles 2 May Be The Best Pixar Sequel

Taking place almost immediately after the first film, The Incredibles 2 may just be the best Pixar sequel ever. When The Incredibles first came out in November 2004, the superhero genre was not as saturated as it is now.  To bring the family of superheroes back some fourteen years later meant that writer-director Brad Bird had to deliver, what with the current market being what it is.  This is a good problem to have.  It…

Jurassic Park Remains A Classic After 25 Years

Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park remains an innovative, groundbreaking and inspiring classic as it did when it was originally released 25 years ago in June. Shortly after the incident on Isla Nublar and the quick introduction of lawyer Donald Gennaro, the film really gets going with paleontologists Alan Grant (Sam Neill) and paleobotonist Ellie Sattler (Laura Dern) digging up a velociraptor in Montana.  Their dig is shortly interrupted by a helicopter, which leads to Grant and Sattler…
