Thanksgiving is over, Black Friday has passed, and the calendar has rolled over to December: it’s officially the holiday season. Chances are your next few weeks will be filled with gift shopping, travel plans, eggnog recipes, and, of course, Christmas movies. Now, I’m not one of those people who thinks Christmas music is overplayed, and I won’t extend that sentiment to the movies either. However, you probably already have your...

Marvel’s Avengers: Infinity War was released this weekend. It was big. It was a very big movie with lots of parts and I’m going to talk about it now, spoilers and all.

Last night, I saw Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi, and I’m just gonna put it simply: it was awesome. What follows is an account of why I thought it was awesome. I’m not going to say this is a review, but I’m probably not going to get very critical or obejective. It’s more of a reaction, so I can use words like “cool” and talk about how much I love Laura Dern.

Real quick though, before we get into spoiler territory, a few...

Last weekend (the one before Thanksgiving, I’m not late on this, you are), Warner Brothers released the latest installment in their DC Extended Universe. Though the franchise recently received a lot of love with this summer’s Wonder Woman, most seemed to expect Justice League to follow in the footsteps of last year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, both in tone and critical reception. The days before the film’s release wer...
