    Ready player one is the ultimate thriller to keep you glued to your seat for the entire show. The movie is based on a novel by Ernest Cline released in mid-2011 which is basically an action-filled adventure story of Wade Watts, the lead character in the book. The movie is a whirlwind of pop culture […]

    Black Panther Review

    Having lived in Africa for quite a few years, I was a bit torn with this film. Overall it was an enjoyable experience, but it wasn’t perfect in my opinion and while its popularity cannot be denied, there were definitely issues with it in my opinion.  The Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) really showed their creative […]

    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2

    It’s difficult to catch lightning in a bottle twice, and that’s exactly what James Gunn tries to do in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. The word “Marvel,” as in comic books or movie studios, has become a foundational term of our culture. Yet you could sit through almost every one of today’s comic-book movies […]

    All about My Love of Sci-Fi

    Generally, when I think about Science Fiction (aka Sci-Fi or SciFi), I think of futuristic things, like faster than light travel, robots, and grandparents knowing how to use computers. But these ideas aren’t a recent invention. Ancient Indians were writing about flying machines as far back as 1100 B.C. Clearly, attempting to look into the future is […]

    Star wars review: The Last Jedi

    The Last Jedi, the latest movie in the Star Wars universe has been nothing if not divisive and it is receiving starkly contrasting reviews from Star Wars fans. This movie has succeeded in creating a huge rift between the two camps in the Star Wars fan community; as for me, I’m in the middle of […]

    Justice League: A Fun Superhero Movie

    Justice League is your typical superhero movie: heroes save the world from a seemingly impossible force.  However, it is a welcome break from dark and gritty films that are almost unpleasant for viewers to watch.  The primary source of conflict is Steppenwolf, played by Ciarán Hinds, who wants to destroy and subjugate the world- in […]

    Your Name: A (Relatively) Spoiler-Free Review

    When I first looked at the theatrical posters for Makoto Shinkai’s Your Name, I was not particularly intrigued by its images.   School boy meets school girl. Quelle surprise, the poster narrative for the Japanese animé experience. Do I want to subject myself to two hours of torture by watching something so overdone? But thanks […]

    Logan : Movie Review

    It’s hard to believe that it’s been seventeen years since Hugh Jackman first suited up to play Wolverine/ Logan. I remarked to a friend of mine that Hugh Jackman had been Wolverine one year longer than we had been friends. That said, I knew it was going to be bittersweet seeing him pop his claws […]

    Arrival: Movie Review

    Ever since I stumbled on the trailer for this movie, I’ve been looking forward to it’s release. Being a Science Fiction fan, clearly the subject matter appeals to me but having director, Denis Villeneuve attached sealed it for me. Villeneuve’s last two films, Siccario & Prisoners, were both strong, especially Siccario. Would Arrival live up […]
