This is the sequel I’ve waited 14 years for?

Just to be clear, it’s not that the movie’s bad, it’s just that it’s…disappointing. 

The Parr family is back, in this long awaited sequel to the 2004 animated classic. Continuing right where the original film left off, Mr.Incredible (Craig T. Nelson), Elastigirl (Holly Hunter), Violet (Sarah Vowell),Dash (Huck Milner), and Jack-Jack (Eli Fucile and Nicholas Bird) wind up in hotwater after failing to stop there latest supervillain. Enter sibling team Winston (Bob Odenkirk) and Evelyn Deavor (Catherine Keener), who come to them with a plan to lift the ban on superheroes. Except, what’s this, the Deavors don’t want Mr. Incredible to be their spokesperson, they want Elastigirl?

The most fun you’ll ever have with a telemarketer

Following the crash, one of the symbiotes, Riot, escapes, killing several innocent humans and embarks on the classic villain plan of taking over the world.

Holy terror at the movie theatre

Congratulations, you succeeded where Tom Cruise failed

Currently, The Nun (2018) is the fifth installment of The Conjuring franchise, not counting the “My Annabelle Creation” winner The Nurse.  The franchise is also notable for being a modern, shared universe of horror films that was for the most part successful, bar a couple of exceptions. Something that Universal has thus far failed to do. Continue reading “Holy terror at the movie theatre”

The prey is an enjoyable movie experience

Witness the latest disappointing franchise entry

The Predator marks the fourth addition to the long running franchise, not counting the now non-canon Alien vs. Predator movies. Fun fact, this film’s director and co-writer, Shane Black, was one of the actors in the original movie. He played Hawkins, the team member who had ‘I’m going to die first’ stamped across his forehead. Continue reading “The prey is an enjoyable movie experience”
