Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery – Toronto 2022

Writer-director Rian Johnson has done it again as he takes Detective Benoit Blanc on a new adventure in Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery. The one downside of this film being released by Netflix is that it’s theatrical release will probably be a brief one. That’s a shame. No matter how many times I’ve watched Knives Out since seeing it twice in theaters, watching at home just isn’t the same. You really need the audience…

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…

Dune Is A Big Screen Experience

Denis Villeneuve brings Frank Herbert’s Dune to the big screen with a film that must be experienced on the biggest screen possible. I’m going to be honest that this review took me a bit longer to write. This is not so much because I had the trouble finding the words but because a Ted Sarandos-triggered depression has been kicking my ass since the screening ended. Wednesday was slightly better but at some point, I have…

Spectre: Sam Mendes Pushes The Limits

Sam Mendes pushes the limits during his second James Bond directorial outing in Spectre to get James Bond back to the travelogue roots. You know this is going to be a big film right from the Day of the Dead pre-titles sequence in Mexico City. It’s one of the biggest openings by far and it gives Mexico some proper representation on screen. By the end of the film, however, Spectre proves to be just one…

My Spy: Action Comedy Is Mediocre At Best

My Spy, the action comedy starring Dave Bautista, is set to launch on Amazon Prime Video after bypassing theaters because of the pandemic. After a few releases delays, the film is finally getting released.  If you’re looking forward to catching this on the big screen, I’m sorry to say that this won’t be happening.  Maybe it’s for the best because the spy comedy is a mediocre installment to the genre.  I was fortunate enough to…

Stuber: A Throwback 80s Action Comedy

Stuber is a well-made action comedy starring Kumail Nanjiani and Dave Bautista as the film throws it back to the great action comedies of the 1980s. In a summer full of remakes and sequels, Stuber is a fresh offering.  At the same time, the film is such a throwback to the great action comedies that we love so much.  It is going to offer us a nostalgic feeling.  A different type than what we typically…

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…

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 – The Road to Endgame

The Guardians of the Galaxy have returned in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, a sequel that provides just as much action and fun as the first movie. The soundtrack for the sequel is provided by Awesome Mixtape #2.  This is the last gift that Meredith Quill (Laura Haddock) gave to her son, Peter (Chris Pratt), prior to dying in the first movie. For Peter Quill, he has never known who his father is.  Lo…
