Toy Story Four-getable

Toy Story 4 was a nostalgic epilogue that left audiences wanting more. Making a fourth addition to a solid trilogy is always a risky move, especially with a franchise as beloved as Toy Story. The general premise is that toys have hidden lives when children are not playing with them, but dream of making the children that take care of them happy. For retro cowboy doll Woody, this means being loyal t...[Read More]

Can You Ever Forgive Me: Melissa McCarthy and Richard Grant’s Masterpiece

Melissa McCarthy has already made a substantial name for herself in the comedy scene, but in Can You Ever Forgive Me? she lets the audience know her talent is vast and uninhibited. The movie, based on Lee Israel’s memoir with the same title, is insightful, poetic, and humorous. It is on my list of movies I’d watch over and over. The movie begins with Lee Israel, played by McCarthy, dri...[Read More]

The Jungle Book Review

The Jungle Book “Forget about your worries and your strife”   Movies have slowly become a family tradition for me: I have a lot of fond memories driving up to the local Harkins with my Mom and Brother and seeing more movies than I can remember during my 27 years (bloody hell I’m getting old.) This tradition has introduced me to some truly crappy movies (I’m looking at you The Fifth Wave) and some ...[Read More]

To me, David Fin...[Read More]

Movie Review: Tusk (Or why you should never go full walrus)

    Hey guys! It’s been a while since my last review, but don’t worry! I’ve picked quite the doozy of a film for this week’s review. This week is Tusk, the latest from Kevin Smith, the mind who brought you Clerks and Red State. Tusk is the perfect example of why the internet is awesome. Kevin Smith was inspired to create Tusk after reading a prank classified Ad on an English website. Her...[Read More]

Is a Dame to Kill For Worth Killing for?

It’s been 9 years since the first Sin City film came out and I have eagerly waited for the day when a sequel would be announced. When I first saw the trailer for Sin City: A Dame to Kill For I nearly fainted. All the black and white mystery, sex, and violence was back! I counted down the days this summer and even made up a quick Sin City style cosplay to see it in(seen below *Hey guys nice to meet...[Read More]
