Movie Review

Movie review: Oppenheimer

If you’re looking for a feel-good summer popcorn flick, then Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer is not that movie. What it is, however, is a stunning, morally complicated biopic about the man behind the creation of the atomic bomb, which forever changed our world and the way we look at war.  Christopher

I just watched season 3 of ‘Picard’ and it was amazing

I broke a lot of my own preferred viewing rules to watch season 3 of Picard.  I had not watched season 1 or 2 of this show. While I was familiar with The Next Generation characters and had seen a handful of episodes, I knew far less about TNG than

Movie review: Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One

Mission: Impossible – Dead Reckoning Part One has a lot working against it.  It’s the seventh(!) movie in a franchise, a number when many other franchises have long since started to overstay their welcome.  It’s a long movie too, clocking in at almost three hours.  And it isn’t even disguising

Summer blockbuster blues

We’re now more than halfway through summer movie season, and by this point, I’ve watched a lot of films. I feel like I’ve made a trip to the theater at least once a week, and blockbuster seasons feels — at least on the surface — the most normal it’s been

Movie review: The Flash

To say that there is drama surrounding The Flash would be something of an understatement — and this applies both on-screen and off. There’s plenty of drama within the film itself, as superhero speedster the Flash (a.k.a. Barry Allen figures out how to run fast enough to travel back in

I love Disney. The very first movie I saw in theaters was the animated Aladdin. My daughter and I regularly listen to (and dance along with) a Disney playlist on Spotify. I carry a Moana backpack/purse with me everywhere I go. And yes, I’m the type of person who gets

Movie review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 was not the movie I expected it to be.  For one, it is much darker and somber in tone than the other two volumes in James Gunn’s trilogy. Sure, there are some laughs and humorous moments sprinkled throughout, but this film also has elements

What I love about Star Wars (that not everyone talks about)

Ask Star Wars fans what we love most about the franchise, and you’ll hear common topics like the Jedi, lightsabers, the Force, bounty hunters, spaceships, the epic John Williams scores, and so on. And if you ask about our favorite characters, names like Obi-Wan Kenobi, Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia, and

Movie review: Shazam! Fury of the Gods

I didn’t get a chance to watch Shazam! Fury of the Gods on opening weekend. And I was so caught up in con excitement (attending my favorite regional con, Planet Comicon in Kansas City), that I really didn’t have time to read any reviews or check out how the box
