It had been long rumored that Universal Studios was planning to resurrect, no pun intended, their classic monsters, in an effort to create their own cinematic universe of connect movies. That time starts now, as The Mummy hits theaters worldwide.
The newest film in the DCEU, and the first major film that features a female superhero, Wonder Woman, hits theaters this week. With the last couple of films in the connected universe leaving much to be desired, the last member of DC's trinity thankfully carries a good origin film, that has things looking up for DC.
The Alien franchise returns to theaters with Alien:Covenant. The sequel to Prometheus builds on the story, but it only slightly better than its predecessor.
From Director Guy Ritchie comes the newest take on the story of King Arthur. Charlie Hunnam stars in this adaptation, which is visually exciting, but lacks enough depth for a worthwhile story.
After the smash success of the first film, the Guardians of the Galaxy return to once again save the universe from potential destruction. The film doubles down on all of the beloved elements of the first film, while expanding side characters' roles, and introducing new characters to the fold. While the film lacks a bit from a story perspective, the film is ultimately an enjoyable, fun, and funny addition to the MCU.
Free Fire is a film set in a 1970s Boston, with cast that includes actors I like, and should be right up my alley. However Free Fire misses the mark by being unmemorable, and ultimately empty.
It's another #ThrowbackThursday, and this ones covers the little street racing franchise that could. I recently caught up with the franchise after putting off the newer films for so long. I walked away pleasantly surprised, and petty excited for F8(a review of which you can see below.)
Many would not have thought that the Fast and Furious franchise would be making it to the eighth installment when it started all those years ago. However Fate Of The Furious is just as fun, funny, and action packed, and shows this series has not signs of slowing down.
The teenagers with attitude are back on the big screen. The newest incarnation of the Power Rangers is a fun yet flawed reboot, with enough going for it that it isn't the disaster I thought it would be.
The newest #ThrowbackThursday dives back to my childhood with a rewatching of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie, and boy does it not age well.
