Poster Justice League - Akello

Movie Review: Justice League

The reviews are terrible, but this one isn’t – Justice League really hit the spot for me. And boy, have the reviews been bad. I mean, there are actually people out there who like Thor:Ragnarok more than this. I tend to think that I am speaking objectively as a Batman fan as opposed to a […]

Movie Review: Thor Ragnarok

Let’s be honest; after Thor: The Dark World, there was really nowhere to go back up. That ham-fisted depiction of a superhero torn between two worlds held in place by a girl is overdone. If you’re going to do the same story again, you had best do it better, or at least with a modicum […]

Series Review: Big Little Lies

If there is a series you should watch next if you haven’t already, it’s Big Little Lies.

Geostorm is exactly what it sounds like – a […]

Baby Driver - Akello

Movie Review: Baby Driver

Look, Baby Driver isn’t for everyone, ok? It certainly wasn’t for me. (super mild spoilers ahead but no direct plot points, just vague exclamations) This is the thing, if you like Edgar Wright movies (the director/writer dude) then there’s a good chance that you will like this one too. He’s the guy who’s behind Scott […]

Movie Review: Pirates of the Caribbean – Dead Men Tell No Tales

Don’t crucify me when I say that I wanted to watch this again more than I did Wonder Woman. I know how that sounds, but let me explain. My relationship with Pirates of the Caribbean is like mine with Harry Potter, or Lord of the Rings, and other such franchises that have gone on for […]

Movie Review: Wonder Woman

The older I get (I said frailly, balancing on my cane), the less inclined I am to go see a movie with a bunch of other loud, noisy young’uns people. Because part of what ruined Wonder Woman for me (one of the only things, actually) was people talking through it and after it, about it. […]
