There are so many (potential) problems with Disney’s upcoming Mulan (a live-action version of the 2009 animated feature, based on a Chinese folktale) though the hardest hurdle to clear is that it costs (supposedly) somewhere in the ballpark of $290-$300 million dollars to produce! This. Movie. Is. Way. Too. Expensive. I don’t know why it […]
I’ll be the first to admit that 2014’s Maleficent wasn’t the movie for me, which is why I expect it’s sequel will also not be to my liking. And that’s perfectly okay because the first movie earned just over $758 million dollars worldwide. In other words, they’re doing just fine without my two cents.
The trailer of Spider-Man: Far From Home dropped this morning, and it’s glorious. There’s a bit too much Iron Spider for my liking–I don’t necessarily mind an Iron Man-ized Spider-Man, but it’s not exactly my favorite thing. That being said, we learn more about Quentin Beck, otherwise known as Mysterio, about how he came to […]

The tone of the trailers for Avengers: Endgame have thus far been rather somber affairs. If you’ve seen the prior movies you know that Thanos snapped his finger, instantly turning half of all life in the universe to dust. With the final trailer you realize that the Avengers may be down, but not for the […]
As I’ve said before, I’m not a huge fan of CGI-animated movies (or paying to see them, at any rate). I recognize the work that goes into their creation, but for whatever reason they don’t move me. The trailer for Toy Story 4 dropped a day or two ago…so here it is. The trailer is […]
