Film Review: Kubo and the Two Strings

I was never great at sticking with any of the numerous instruments I picked up throughout my life, and boy do I feel cheated. Had I known they could be as magical as Kubo’s samisen I may have kept with one! Continue reading Film Review: Kubo and the Two Strings

Film Review: Suicide Squad

Back when Suicide Squad was rushed into reshoots following the reaction to the initial trailer release, I remember talking myself into the opinion that filming new content could only be a good thing even though most feared for the worst. After all, video game release dates get pushed all the time to allow for more development, so by all means take all the time necessary to make Suicide Squad a great film. No really, take some time. Take this movie back, work on it some more, and then get back to us. Because this thing needs some work. Continue reading Film Review: Suicide Squad

Book Review: The Last Star (The 5th Wave Book 3)

As disappointed as I was with the filmmakers for their failed attempt at adapting my guilty pleasure novel, The 5th Wave, into a decent movie, I still had the book series to fall back on for comfort. At least I thought I did. It turns out the movie wasn’t the worst thing that could happen to this series; the worst was yet to come. Continue reading Book Review: The Last Star (The 5th Wave Book 3)

Film Review: The Shallows

I’ve been afraid of the ocean and sharks for as long as I can remember. I can’t tell you where this fear originated for me, but thanks to The Shallows I can tell you the exact moment in which the little boy sitting in front of me became afraid of the great wide sea. I saw it in his eyes as he climbed into his mother’s lap. Welcome, child. Say it with me: the ocean is dark and full of terrors. Continue reading Film Review: The Shallows

Film Review: Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping is a silly and stupid send up of rock documentaries in the best way possible, with the Lonely Island guys keeping things fresh throughout. Continue reading Film Review: Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping
