Top Ten: Live-Action Films That Deserve A Rewatch

I find life as a film reviewer tough because I like tons of films that get poorly received by the audience, other critics or both. They have also been derided by people as too unconventional. However, I like them because they fit my mind. 10. John Carter (2012):┬áMade in the 100th anniversary of the Edgar … Continue reading Top Ten: Live-Action Films That Deserve A Rewatch

Intellectualism VS Consumerism: Ang Lee and James Mangold over the Traditional Marvel Films

Intellectualism VS Consumerism: Ang Lee and James Mangold over the Traditional Marvel Films

There are a lot of comic book films out there, but my personal favorites are Hulk (2003) and Logan (2017) because they prefer to be intelligent and original, rather than simply basing it on the comics or using tons of toddler fodder to attract audiences. While Hulk had abysmal marketing that made people feel like … Continue reading Intellectualism VS Consumerism: Ang Lee and James Mangold over the Traditional Marvel Films

President Skroob (Mel Brooks) is the leader of Planet Spaceball, and is a galactic tyrant.

Timeless Classics: Blazing Saddles

Timeless Classics: Blazing Saddles

While Blazing Saddles (1974), Mel Brooks' Magnum Opus can be defined as bogus by some of the social justice warriors post-1990s (no offense), the truth is that the film brought enough comedic justice. The point is the film satirizes racism during the New Hollywood era and the world of the old west. Bart (Cleavon Little) … Continue reading Timeless Classics: Blazing Saddles
