SCOOB! Review: “A Ride on The Hanna-Barbera Side”

Scoob! Movie Review

Scoob! is a scrappy attempt at rebooting one of the most beloved animated series/movies. But one thing it definitely is is more of a targeted opening towards creating a Hanna-Barbera universe. The film is perfect for a targeted audience in the younger K-12 demographic. Scoob! looks to write an origin story for our favorite talking […]

HARLEY QUINN: BIRDS OF PREY : Why Realistic Empowerment Is Important

Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey or (Birds of Prey (And The Fabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)) kicked off the superhero films of 2020 with a bang this past weekend. While some were disappointed with it’s box office, 33.3 million domestically, and 81.2 million worldwide (the film has made it’s budget back in a weekend, I […]

Resistance Reborn - cover image

Resistance Reborn by Rebecca Roanhorse takes place after Star Wars: The Last Jedi and before the upcoming conclusion to The Skywalker Saga, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. During the year long gap between the two, Resistance Reborn takes place, presumably on the earlier side. In short, the Resistance is looking for a place to […]

JOKER (2019) – An Unintentional Way To Spin-Off?

Joker came to be out of director Todd Phillips’s brain, intending to be a more grounded comic book film. A DC “black” label film, Joker is outside the normal bounds of the DC film universe. This film has no connection to Shazam, or Man Of Steel, or  Justice League. It still is a DC film, but it […]

Thrawn: Alliances – A Better Step Forward For Thrawn

Thrawn: Alliances is the best of both worlds. Timothy Zahn combines movie characters that have been loved, with newer characters in one space and time, piecing together the final story over two timelines. This novel is a great piece of work, with flow only Zahn could have accomplished. In terms of main characters, there’s Anakin […]

Thrawn – Or Arihnda Pryce, Eli Vanto, and Thrawn

Star Wars: Thrawn is the first real introduction of a Star Wars Legends character into current canon mythos. That character being Mitth’raw’nuruodo, or Thrawn as he is called by most. Thrawn is a Chiss, a species that is part of the Unknown Regions territories in space. The species is rarely seen around the galaxy, and it is often […]

THE PINK PANTHER – A Classic Comfort Film

The Pink Panther - cover image

The Pink Panther is a redesign/reboot of the Pink Panther franchise that started in 1963 with the movie The Pink Panther(which I have not seen). In this film, we don’t see the iconic animated panther himself, but we do hear the traditional ‘duh done du-don” theme. We do have the clumsy Inspector Jacques Clouseau (Steve Martin), and he’s […]

Review: THE TERMINATOR(1984)

The Terminator is a science fiction action film from 1984 that has aged incredibly well. The CGI is a product of its time, but represents rather well for 80s technological advances. The plot is well done, manipulating the damsel in distress typical story to its advantage. It’s definitely a highlight of science fiction movies, with time […]

Review: OCEAN’S ELEVEN (2001)

This movie has been out for 18 years, but if you’re like me before a couple months ago and haven’t seen Ocean’s Eleven, you should be warned there will be spoilers below. Ocean’s Eleven is a fun puzzle of a heist movie for every second of the film. There is not a minute out of place, […]

REVIEW: Spider-Man: Far From Home(2019)

Spider-Man Far From Home is a wonderful conclusion to the MCU’s Infinity Saga, and an even better opening for what’s to come from the MCU. This film reminds me a lot of Iron Man 3, where we’re dealing with our superhero experiencing trauma from a prior experience, in this case an Avengers movie. Peter Parker (Tom Holland) […]
