Creative Close-Up: There Is Room for All Cinema

10.28.19 I’ve been itching to write about this. It is the perfect subject for this month. Some of you have read about Martin Scorses‘s opinion about Marvel movies. For those who haven’t let me fill you in.  Scorsese is promoting his latest film, ‘The Irishmen‘, and someone asked him about Marvel films. His response: “Honestly, the closest I can think of them, as well made as they are, with actors doing the best they can under the circumstances, is theme parks,” He also adds, “It isn’t the cinema of human beings trying to convey emotional, psychological experiences to another human being.” Ok, but then he had to touch the subject a few more times, “We shouldn’t be invaded by it,” and  “We need cinemas to step up and show films that are narrative films.” Francis Ford Coppola said that Marvel films are despicable, then Jennifer Aniston added to the pot, that she’s not interested in living in a green screen. To be honest, these are their own opinions, and I respect them, but they fail to …

Film Review: X-Men Dark Phoenix

6.10.19 Hello again…got a film review for you courtesy of Mr. H Reviews and boy does he have a lot to say on this film here, X-Men Dark Phoenix. As for me, I think I’ve seen enough X-Men films to know that they might as well hang it up. HANG.IT.UP! Unless Disney takes it and makes it better, which I doubt, just hang it up. I knew this one wasn’t up to good standards. Here is Mr. H’s take on Dark Pheonix…oh Spoiler Warnings. For those who haven’t seen it, don’t look at the rest of the film review video.  If you enjoyed this review like I did, please follow him on his YouTube channel Mr. H Reviews.

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 …
