Happy Death Day 2 U

Happy Death Day 2 U is the convoluted sequel to Blumhouse’s surprise hit film sold off the simple genius of its premise: “What if Groundhog Day was a horror movie?” The sequel is patently ridiculous, remarkably schlocky and boldly enters into a whole new dimension of absurdity. But, as far as I’m concerned, that’s the…

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part

From its redundant title, obnoxious music, confusing meta-narrative to its insistence that Chris Pratt was more likable when he was fat, The Lego Movie 2 feels hastily assembled in comparison to its effortlessly creative predecessor.

Aquaman

The exact moment I knew Aquaman was a certain kind of special, was when a giant octopus started playing the war drums. And to be honest, it only got zanier from there. Aquaman has always been the butt of the joke. The one superhero who seems to have had the rockiest transition from the golden…

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse

A common sentiment surrounding Avengers: Infinity War was that it was what “all comic book movies have been leading to.” Those people were wrong. The past 40-years of comic book films have been leading to Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse. Now before you get all testy, I’m not saying that this is the greatest comic book…
