Avengers: Infinity War – Review (Spoilerless)

I was 13 when Ironman debuted, three months removed from my Bar-Mitzvah. My adolescence was partially shaped by the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe); I have spent 19 Thursday nights for the past 10 years in theatres marinating in the familiar smell of popcorn and awaiting what Kevin Fiege (the producer and show-runner for the MCU) […]

Blockers— Review

Teen comedies and coming of age stories have been popular since the 1980s. Films like Porky’s (1981) and Fast Times At Ridgemont High (1982) led to films like American Pie (1999), Superbad (2007), and Easy A (2010).

Irreplaceable You – Review

Presenting the story of a young couple who find themselves being torn apart by the fragility of the human condition, Irreplaceable You sets a narrative standard that turns against itself and becomes part of the obstacles it faces to become memorable for the viewers. Labeling itself a “tearjerker,” the film does not get to that point, as […]

Pacific Rim: Uprising – Review

Sadly, in today’s capitalist approach to film as a product instead of an art-form, a sequel to a financially successful flick is guaranteed. When Chris Nolan debuted his trailer for The Dark Knight Rises at an award show over half a decade ago, he prefaced it with saying something along the lines of, “This is […]
