Jay And Silent Bob Reboot - Review

Image
Kevin Smith made a shared cinematic universe that featured a Stan Lee cameo long before Kevin Feige ever did it with the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Smith's "ViewAskewniverse" was a series of screwball stoner comedies, that seemingly ended with Clerks II. But everything that is old is new again, and Smith returned to his roots with the very meta Jay And Silent Bob Reboot.

Joker - Review

Image
The "comic book movie" genre is vast, providing many different takes and feels to comic book movies. Every now and then a film comes a long to challenge the meaning of the genre, and transcend it completely. The Dark Knight did that. So did Logan and Avengers: Endgame.

Ad Astra - Review

Image
Space adventure films have been top notch lately. Films like Gravity and The Martian take the genre and offer something new. Ad Astra is the next film in that line, and does the same thing.

Image
Jurassic Park is one of the best movies ever made. The premise was executed flawlessly, and it gave audiences something they've never seen before. The same cannot be said about the sequels, which either offered more of the same or squandered the franchise completely.
