Spiderhead Is Cerebral, No Top Gun: Maverick

It’s not often that filmmakers will deliver one of the biggest hits and duds of the summer but Spiderhead is the latter after Top Gun. In fairness, it is hot as hell outside and the excessive heat no doubt impacted my own viewing experience. Joseph Kosinski’s follow-up will play better for cerebral viewers. If you’re a fan of George Saunders, maybe you’ll fare better than me. It’s not much of an action film the film…

Thor: Love and Thunder – Teaser Trailer Is Here

With just over two and a half months remaining before Thor: Love and Thunder hits theaters, Marvel released the teaser trailer. After months of waiting, I naturally assumed that Marvel would just attach it as a mid-credits or post-credits scene to Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Alas, they went ahead and released it this week. There’s not much to see in the 1:30 trailer. Thor (Chris Hemsworth) works off the weight he put…

What If…?: Animated Series Depicts A Different MCU

Marvel Studios’ What If…? takes what we know as the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) but delivers the animated action with a twist. The series draws on the Marvel Comics anthology series of the same name. Like the comic series, this is also an anthology series. We revisit key moments of the MCU through the eyes of Marvel newcomer Jeffrey Wright, who voices The Watcher, and see what would happen had characters done A instead of…

Extraction Is No Trip To The Dentist

Extraction, the new Netflix thriller starring Chris Hemsworth as a black market mercenary, is no simple trip to the dentist. When we first meet Tyler Rake (Chris Hemsworth), it’s in the middle of shootout and you’re about to fear the worst.  But before anything else can happen, the film takes us back to a few days before.  Yes, it’s one of those films.  Not necessarily a bad thing but it’ll be some time before we…

Men in Black: International goes Across The Pond

Men in Black: International ups the ante just a little bit as MIB takes the fun across the pond in order to protect the universe. It’s been known since Tomorrowland that the Eiffel Tower was a bridge to another dimension.  While the former film saw Gustav Eiffel as a founder of Plus Ultra, this film sees him as one of MIB’s earliest agents.  In fact, the Great Migration was really aliens coming to Earth.  But…

Avengers: Endgame – The Endgame is Here

Marvel Studios’ previous films have all been leading up to Avengers: Endgame and the film is very much worth the three-hour run time.

I’m trying to avoid spoilers here so please read at your own risk.…

Avengers: Infinity War – The Road to Endgame

The stakes have never been higher with the release of Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Infinity War. Ten years in the making, it all culminates in this epic crossover of a film.  All of our favorite heroes in one film save for Hawkeye and Ant-Man–neither of which were one the poster.  With this large of a cast, it a was a question going into the film of how would they be able to handle the appearances of…

Thor: Ragnarok – The Road to Endgame

It’s been 2.5 years since Thor (Chris Hemsworth) left to look for Odin at the end of Avengers 2: Age of Ultron.  Meanwhile, Hulk (Mark Ruffalo) was seen departing for who knows where following the attack on Sokovia.
