The Dark Knight Movie Review

Here’s part 3 of my preparation for Batman v. Superman (part 1:Top 5 Batman and Superman movies, part 2: Man of Steel Review). How anyone could dislike this movie is beyond me.  It’s by far the best superhero movie ever made and I’ll argue it is one of the best movies in general ever made….

10 Cloverfield Lane Movie Review

This is a perfect example of a movie being much better when it doesn’t give away everything in its trailer and marketing. I’m not going to give away too much about the plot because it makes the movie more enjoyable to not know much.  However, the basic premise is that a young woman (John McClane’s…

The Shawshank Redemption Review

Out of all the movies on my Spring Break Watchlist, this was the one I probably needed to watch the most.  It was always the movie that was most shocking to people when I mentioned I’d never seen it, especially given this hobby of mine.  It wasn’t that I hadn’t wanted to necessarily; I had…

Room Movie Review

Another review for an Oscar-nominated movie- one I watched over a week ago and am just getting around to reviewing. My bad. Room is the story of a young woman (Brie Larson) and her son who are being held captive by a mysterious man.  Eventually they escape and try to start a new life in…

Jane Got A Gun Movie Review

I wanted to see The Finest Hours this weekend, but it was playing at weird times that didn’t work for me.  So I saw this instead. It was my first (movie related) bad decision this year.

Birdman DVD Review

This review was supposed to come out in honor of the Oscar nominations being released last week.  However, I haven’t had much time until now so it’s a little late.  But here I am with my review for last year’s Best Picture winner that I hadn’t seen until last week. Birdman is about an actor…

The Big Short Movie Review

It’s about the time of year to start catching up on Oscar movies that I haven’t seen.  What better place to start than one nominated for 5 awards, including best picture? The Big Short is based on the true story of the housing market collapse in 2008.  It follows the separate, yet connected, stories of…

13 Hours Movie Review

Michael Bay doesn’t exactly have the best track record with making a good movie based on a true story.  Or for making good movies in general for that matter.  That has officially changed. 13 Hours is based on the true events that transpired in 2012 when the U.S. embassy in Benghazi, Libya was attacked.  It details…

Free State of Jones Trailer Review

Where on earth did this movie come from? I was going to do a review for this trailer sooner, as I saw it attached to The Revenant on Thursday night.  But it wasn’t available online until tonight so here we are.  

Game of Thrones (Seasons 1-5) Review

I held out for a while, but finally gave in and tried to see what all the hype was about. Game of Thrones is the worldwide phenomenon of an HBO show in which several noble families in the mythical land of Westeros try to take control of the world and get to sit in  the so-called…
