Earth’s mightiest heroes get to mulligan the last eleven years.

Review: Ghostbusters (2016)

Here it is, the answer about one of the most controversial movies this decade… A university professor looking for a real, respectable position is outed to her peers when an old friend re-published a book they once co-wrote about paranormal activity and ghost study.

Duo Review: Thor & Thor – The Dark World

Review: Snow White & The Huntsman

Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the fairest of them all? Duh, Charlize Theron, obviously. The classic Grimm’s fairytale gets a Gothic makeover in this atmospheric and wonderfully visual fantasy film. I am a sucker for “atmospheric, visual, Gothic fantasy films”, so I really enjoyed this. As I eluded to in my Mirror, Mirror review,…

Review: Avengers Assemble (2D)

There are four films this year I am banking on being at the top of my list and Avengers Assemble was the lesser. My god this is going to be a good year for movies! Marvel Studios colossal gamble in combining four of their major comic brands into one film was subject to feeling clustered…
