Movie review: Was ‘Incredibles 2’ worth the wait?

It’s been 14 years since the first “Incredibles” movie premiered in theaters, and it’s amazing to see how much the superhero genre has changed during that time. The original “Incredibles” came out a year before Christopher Nolan’s groundbreaking Dark Knight trilogy and four years before the very first Marvel Cinematic

Too much of a good thing: Are sequels/revivals always a great idea?

“Arrested Development” is one of my all-time favorite TV shows. The series, featuring the misadventures of the spectacularly dysfunctional Bluth family, ran for a mere three seasons on Fox before getting canceled. However, thanks to a still-devoted fanbase, the show was revived seven years later on Netflix. Although Netflix swooping

Movie review: ‘Blade Runner 2049’ a worthy sequel to a sci-fi classic

I love being surprised by a movie. A couple times a year, I’ll walk into a theater to see a film, either not quite sure what to expect or not feeling particularly hyped, and then I’ll end up walking out afterwards completely blown away. That was my experience watching “Blade

By Ashley Pauls/Box Office Buzz When I was a kid, I thought Harrison Ford was pretty much the coolest person ever. After all, he was Han Solo AND Indiana Jones, my two favorite movie characters. Since then, Star Wars and Indiana Jones have remained two of my favorite film franchises,

Sequels, prequels, reboots and remakes: When they work—and when they don’t

Although we’re still only halfway through July, it’s probably safe to say “Jurassic World” will likely end the summer as king of this year’s blockbuster season. It’s about a month since the movie’s release, and Chris Pratt and his team of dinosaurs don’t appear to be slowing down. In fact,

“Age of Ultron”: Trailer kicks off speculation about Avengers sequel

By Ashley Bergner Box Office Buzz Well, let the speculation begin. The first trailer for Marvel’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” arrived earlier than expected, thanks to a leak (Marvel proved to be a good sport, claiming — tongue-in-cheek — the work of pesky “Hydra” agents). At any rate, the trailer
