Film Review: Venom

10.8.18 I haven’t posted a review since…April? Avengers: Infinity War. I have a lot of catching up do with this department. I made up for it on Saturday with Venom. Let me just say that I found it very entertaining.  Some critics didn’t too much like it or cared for the film, but I tend to think these people forget about films, especially superhero films: having a fun ride and that’s what Venom is. A little funny ride.  Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) is an investigative journalist who lands an interview with Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed), CEO of the Life Foundation. The foundation has sent a probe in space in search of habitable worlds. The probe comes in contact with a symbiotic lifeform. Brock’s fiancé, Anne Weying (Michelle Williams) is a district attorney helping with the Life Foundation’s legal defense. Instead of asking about his space program, Brock questions Drake about another subject, which leads with not so great consequences. One of Drake’s scientists (Jenny Slate) approaches Brock with evidence of using human hosts for the …

Film Review: Black Panter

February 20 / 18 Hello everyone! It’s time for a film review. Not Fifty Shades Free…who cares about that film. I’m talking about the newest superhero film from Marvel, Black Panther. This review will be short, very short. Here are my thoughts on the film…   Awesome Inspirational It’s not your average superhero film. It’s a film for everyone. For me, as a Black woman, it’s good to see Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Guria, Angela Bassett, and Letitia Wright as strong, capable women able to take care of business. Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, and the rest of the cast were great. Boseman brought wisdom and strength to his role as T’Challa. Director Ryan Coogler did an awesome job with his first foray to bring the story of the Wakandan king. It brought the action, drama, and everything else in between. What time to bring this film in the month of Black History.     That’s it. I said that it was going to be short. If you haven’t seen Black Panther, it’s a must that you …

Film Review: Thor Ragnarok

November 6 / 17 Hello again….Short and to the point film review of Thor: Ragnarok. This third installment of the film is a breath of fresh air. The first was pretty good, ok even. The second….well I don’t know. It was alright, but it was lacking something and I still can’t put a finger on. Chris Hemsworth returns as the Norse god of Thunder in this wild ride, along with Tom Hiddleston‘s Loki and Mark Ruffalo‘s next venture as Hulk/Bruce Banner, and Idris Elba as Heimdall. Added to the cast, Tessa Thompson as Valkeryie, and Jeff Goldblum as Grandmaster. Let’s not forget Cate Blanchett, who is badass as Hela. What makes Ragnarok better than the two? Well, Taika Waititi‘s take is a hilarious thrill ride and I mean that in a very good way. Here I found a video that has five clips from the film. Enjoy! If you want an action-packed thrill entertaining ride, then this is it. This Marvel film doesn’t disappoint. Now when do we get a trailer for Avengers: Infinity War? Thor Ragnarok: A+ …

Film Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

May 16 / 17 It’s been awhile for a film review, but I’ve been waiting to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. Marvel has shoveled film after film, sticking to the Second Phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Bradley Cooper, Michael Rooker, Karen Gillan and Vin Diesel have returned to pick up where the Guardians left off. Vol. 2 follows the Guardians as they are hired by the Sovereign, a powerful alien, but rather stuck up race of beings, to protect their batteries from invaders. That goes south when Rocket steals those very same batteries. While the Sovereign are busy plotting revenge, the gang gets sidetracked when Peter Quill’s father shows up. Kirk Russell is Ego, who is some sort of Celestia being. Mantis, played by Pom Klementieff, who has empathic abilties and is raised by Ego, is a newcomer to the gang. He invites them to his home planet so he can get to know his son better, but things aren’t always what they seem….James Gunn is …
