Movie Review: Avengers – Infinity War (Spoiler Free!)

I never considered myself a fan of superhero movies. I’d been a firm believer that those blockbuster films were overrated. I truly thought I had no ties to the genre, whatsoever. Now, I’ve realized that is a complete lie. I love superhero movies, I always have. I didn’t want to admit it to myself. I’d…

Help! I Can’t Stop Watching DIVERGENT

Lately, I’ve found myself stuck in an endless Divergent loop. It’s always on TV. I can’t get away from it. I have to watch it. Who cares about the hundred-plus films that stare at me judgmentally from my Netflix queue? I know I surely don’t. When Divergent is on nothing else matters. I really don’t…

Random Rambling: Beauty & The Beast, Tomorrowland, and The Muppets

Beauty & The Beast I have a problem, a very serious problem. It has come to my attention that Disney is currently in the process of translating a good portion of their beloved animated classics into live-action films. Jungle Book. Dumbo (Seriously?). Mulan. Pinocchio. Winnie the Pooh. Tinkerbell.  I may be a die-hard Disney nerd, but…

The Toronto International Film Festival officially wrapped up this weekend, after hosting over three-hundred films from around the world. For some, that might simply be a number, an impressive myriad of newly acclaimed movies. Or, some might think of the festival only as an outlet, to distinguish front-runners for this upcoming awards season. To me,…

Cosmic Love Ten minutes into the film and I knew there was something different about this particular adaptation, something uniquely special about The Fault In Our Stars. Even now, a week later, I can still feel the euphoric aftereffects of glorious wonderment running through my system. I certainly never thought it would be overly disappointing,…

Movie Review: Maleficent

Not Your Mama’s Fairytale As a child, my favorite Disney film had been Sleeping Beauty. I was captivated by it, hypnotized by the vibrant colors and the elaborate landscapes. Pink or blue, it didn’t matter. My young heart was enchanted by the young Princess Aurora and her three skilled protectors. To this day, I can…

Ten for the Price of One

My love for movies and movie trailers knows no bounds, as you are very well acquainted with, but most of the time I fail to actually see those movies that I comment on until they are well past their expiration date. These past few weeks, weirdly enough, I’ve been on a steady binge, keeping myself…

Trailer Talk: The Rover

There is an overwhelming sense of dread as you gaze upon the desolate Australian landscape, as you try to interpret the stunning and disturbing imagery of The Rover. Like a photograph assembled of riddles, the film’s first trailer plays out in grim and eerie detail. Every scene is clouded in mystery and subject to dissection. It…

Trailer Talk: The Fault In Our Stars

I can’t even begin to describe what I feel in this moment. My thoughts are like stars I cannot fathom into constellations. My thoughts are like a half-million abnormally shaped shards of fragmented emotions swirling around and around inside my head and in my gut. The first trailer for The Fault In Our Stars is…
