Ford v. Ferrari (2019) REVIEW – More Than a Feud

The term ‘rivalry’ is a cutting, astringent, acid word that is pinned to hostility and vinegary negativity, but beneath its surface, rivalry paves the way for victory, success, and history to be made. As the ’66 Le Mans race approached, Ford rose up, hungry for triumph over long-time Italian auto adversary Ferrari.

Jojo Rabbit (2019) REVIEW – A Fresh Political Satire

Fox Searchlight sets out to challenge the textbook coming-of-age story that has been told time and time again. Taking an unsavory stance upon its opening, the progression of Jojo Rabbit delightfully surprises with its message, but with a softer blow than what is anticipated by applying a playful attitude towards the Holocaust that doesn’t dismiss its historical significance. Leeching off of the trauma of World … Continue reading Jojo Rabbit (2019) REVIEW – A Fresh Political Satire

JOKER (2019) Review – We Live in a Society

Gotham is revived in living color and in inauspicious despair as it bears growing lawlessness that commands the centric theme of the highly-anticipated character study on the harlequin of hate who has been praised as a saint for exiles throughout the ages – Joker. The notorious, infamous, face-painted, and fearmongering character has been one that has become, in sorts, a mockery of itself in recent … Continue reading JOKER (2019) Review – We Live in a Society

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) REVIEW

Sure, we’ve seen multiple Spider-Men come and go over the past decade or so. It started off with Tobey Maguire, then it was Andrew Garfield, and now Tom Holland as the teenaged Peter Parker who “didn’t want to go” in Avengers: Infinity War (2018.) But this? Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) introduces a new breed of radioactive spider-bitten vigilantes. Sony knows how to kick off their animated … Continue reading Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018) REVIEW

Teen Titans Go! To The Movies (2018)

As a die-hard and lifelong Marvel fanatic, I can honestly say that there was a lot of bias and apprehension during Teen Titans Go! To The Movies (2018.) However, despite where my loyalties lie,  DC Entertainment and Warner Brothers may have easily outdone themselves with this animated delight. The reboot of the Teen Titans on Cartoon Network is frankly cheesy and overdone. When it comes to the … Continue reading Teen Titans Go! To The Movies (2018)
