Supergirl: A Sad Addition to the TV Superhero Genre

At the time of my writing this, CBS has only released the pilot for Supergirl. It is possible that my opinion on the show has changed, but from watching the single episode, I felt as though enough was made clear to me about the coming show for me to write something about it. I doubt my… Continue reading Supergirl: A Sad Addition to the TV Superhero Genre

Before We Go: A Charming Story with Some Good Performances

It seems as though Chris Evans and his fellow Avenger actors have been dedicating a large portion of their acting efforts to proving that they are more than Marvel allows them to be in the superhero flicks. Sure, they can all play simple hero characters, but for most of them, there’s more than meets the… Continue reading Before We Go: A Charming Story with Some Good Performances

Dallas Buyers Club: Matthew McConaughey is… Really Good at Acting?

Matthew McConaughey is a name that I had only thought of in relation to sub-par romantic comedies with bad acting and poorly written scripts. However, recently, the name has started to gain value and respect as McConaughey starred in such movies as Mud (a fantastic movie) and The Lincoln Lawyer.

Tomorrowland: A Cool Journey.. to Disappointment

Before I start, I just want to give the team behind Brad Bird’s Tomorrowland major props for the vagueness of the film’s trailers. Going into this movie, I had more or less no idea what it was about. This is something that has become more and more rare in the movie industry these days, so it was… Continue reading Tomorrowland: A Cool Journey.. to Disappointment

Little Miss Sunshine: A Gem That Stands the Test of Time

I remember the year Little Miss Sunshine came out (2006). I was much younger then, and couldn’t possibly have appreciated any of the subtleties of the film. For this reason, I re-watched a few years ago and instantly fell in love. However, it was not until I watched this movie again last night that I… Continue reading Little Miss Sunshine: A Gem That Stands the Test of Time
