Star Trek: Picard – Season 2

Star Trek: Picard sees the Starfleet veteran travel back in time to 2024 in order to prevent a divergence in the timeline and save the future. Season 2 of Picard pulls out all the stops with no shortages of actors reprising their roles. The first season brought back a few of the Enterprise crew as we saw what Picard was up to. This time around, he’s the chancellor of the Starfleet Academy as the season…

The Prince of Egypt Gets Part of The Exodus Wrong

The Prince of Egypt may have beautiful animation and music but in retelling the story of the Exodus, they get part of it wrong. While working as Chairman of Walt Disney Studios Jeffrey Katzenberg wanted to do an animated adaptation of the 1956 classic, The Ten Commandments. No matter how many times he mentioned this to then-Disney CEO Michael Eisner, the answer–like the many requests of Moses to Pharaoh–was always no. With a no-go at…

Star Trek: First Contact: The Best Next Generation Film

Star Trek: First Contact remains the best of the four Star Trek films starring The Next Generation cast just over 25 years later. I have to be honest here: I grew up a Star Wars fan and didn’t really watch any Star Trek series while growing up. My dad did but it just wasn’t my thing. My first experience with anything Star Trek was seeing the reboot in June 2009. Following that, it wasn’t until…

Charlie’s Angels Offers Up Action, Comedy

Charlie’s Angels takes the Townsend Agency international in this very fast-paced action-comedy written and directed by Elizabeth Banks.

X-Men: Days of Future Past – Road to Dark Phoenix

X-Men: Days of Future Past is certainly one of the best films in the entire X-Men series and unites both the new and old casts with stakes on the line. After being set up in The Wolverine, the action starts in 2023.  By this point, the elder Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) and Erik Lehnsherr (Ian McKellan) have gotten over their differences.  The two of them are working together in order to save both mutants and…

X-Men: The Last Stand- The Road to Dark Phoenix

X-Men: The Last Stand is practically non-existent and we owe our thanks to the ret-con provided in X-Men: Days of Future Past. It’s a shame that Scott Summers/Cyclops (James Marsden) gets the shaft.  Is this because Marsden decided to join Superman Returns?  Maybe.  Nobody could blame him for doing so with Bryan Singer helming the other film.  With Cyclops gone, both Storm (Halle Berry) and Logan/Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) take on an increase in leadership.  Wolverine…

X2: X-Men United – The Road to Dark Phoenix

X2: X-Men United is the comic book adaptation that set the benchmark for all comic book films until The Dark Knight came calling five years later. After Alkali Lake was teased at the end of X-Men, the setting plays a larger focus in the sequel.  It’s the base for Col. William Stryker (Brian Cox), who happens to take on a more villainous role than Magneto (Ian McKelllan).  Stryker is no fan of mutants and lets…

X-Men – The Road to Dark Phoenix

X-Men is one of the earliest Marvel Comics adaptations to take to the big screen in the newer age of cinema in recent years.

The Kid Who Would Be King is Fun, Adventurous

The Kid Who Would Be King is able to get the legend of King Arthur back on track following a disastrous showing on the big screen in 2017. Alexander Elliott (Louis Ashbourne Serkis) is the typical student attending Dungate Academy.  He hangs out with his best friend, Bedders (Dean Chaumoo), and defends him from school bullies Lance (Tom Taylor) and Kaye (Rhianna Dorris).  Lance is king around this joint and he’s not changing for anyone. …
