Why Fandom Has Gone Too Far

Why Fandom Has Gone Too Far

I find the concept of fandom contagious because there are certain fandoms that can't handle changes they don't want. For example, my favorite films of all time, Ang Lee's Hulk (2003) and James Mangold's Logan (2017) were criticized for being "different" or "intense and gloomy". Other films, especially by M. Night Shyamalan and the Wachowskis … Continue reading Why Fandom Has Gone Too Far

SPOILERS FROM THE FILM AHEAD In the film, Scooby and his friends tried … Continue reading Why Scooby-Doo: Monsters Unleashed is relevant in 2018

Ang Lee’s Hulk 15th Anniversary

The acting is overlooked, especially from Eric Bana, Jennifer Connelly, Nick Nolte and Sam Elliott. Lee brought his interpretation to … Continue reading Ang Lee’s Hulk 15th Anniversary

Timeless Classics: The Incredibles 2

Timeless Classics: The Incredibles 2

Like fellow Pixar sequels Toy Story 2 (1999) and Toy Story 3 (2010), The Incredibles 2 (2018) was able to deliver a story that is equally as great as its 2004 predecessor. Set directly after the first film, the Incredibles defend themselves from the Underminer (John Ratzenberger). That is the only plot element I am … Continue reading Timeless Classics: The Incredibles 2

Timeless Classics: The Incredibles

SPOILER-FREE REVIEW Just in time for Incredibles 2 (2018), the 2004 film (not the May 2003 teaser with original footage) started it all! One of Pixar's greatest works, it focuses on a family of Supers (like the X-Men) who try to fit in. The father, Bob/Mr. Incredible (Craig T. Nelson) has super strength. His wife … Continue reading Timeless Classics: The Incredibles
