Welcome to the Guardians of the Freakin’ Galaxy

Last week, I was lucky enough to find the time to catch Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2. I went in with pretty high expectations, just as I am sure many fans of the first film (and many fans of Marvel’s foray into films as of late) also did. So how did the film stand…

Fantastic Beasts And What I Think Of Them

While I may not be a major fan of Harry Potter, I did go and take a look at Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them. As Rowling often refers to creatures that are popular in fantasy, I was curious to see which ones would be used and how they would be portrayed in this…

Top Line/Bottom Line: Doctor Strange

By Michael Stoll 19 November 2016 Top Line: Doctor Strange offers a fun spectacle of CGI wonder and provides the Marvel Cinematic Universe with another strong entry, but fails to immerse the audience fully in the world of magic. 3/5.

The Organ Trail Diaries: Part 2

By JimboSlice 25 March 2015 If you missed it, check out Part 1 here! Finally, the game was beginning in earnest.  I was on my own (well, with my three best friends great acquaintances good coworkers other people and one professional zombie slayer) to live or die by my own choices, no longer hampered by the stupidity of other…

No More Paradise Island

By Brian VanDenBergh 20 March 2015 I’m a graduate of film school so I’m basically a snob when it comes to seeing things in film and commenting on them. This afternoon during March Madness, Marvel released a new TV spot for The Avengers: Age of Ultron. Some things stood out to me and added to…
