Review: Bumblebee (2018)

Franchise fatigue. This is what I felt after the third Transformers movie. The Bayhem can wear you down.  So I wasn’t really keen on seeing another Transformers movie to be honest, especially since over the years, as each Transformers installment rolls out, the reviews seem to get more and more vicious each time. But I got…

Review: Ready Player One (2018)

Ready Player One is a movie made specially for me. I love underdog stories. I love a good quest story. I love a good band/gang/team. I love nostalgia. I love 80s-90s pop culture. I love the idea of a virtual world existing in a grimy, worn-down real world. And for the most part, Ready Player…

Review: Captain America: Civil War (2016)

There is this bit of wisdom that I realized as I was sitting inside the theater, halfway through Captain American: Civil War (2016). Said nugget of wisdom was imparted on me by all-knowing 10-year old nephew who declared that the movie feels like it has all the bits and pieces of the other solo movies…
