Review: Deadpool 2

So now Deadpool is back and more irreverent than ever and with a higher budget in Deadpool 2. I was worried going into this because after the success of the first one, Fox went and almost doubled their budget for this one. I was worried that it would fall prey to trying to stick too much into a movie that didn’t need it.

Appreciating Christopher Nolan: The Dark Knight

So much has been said about The Dark Knight in the last ten years. It’s widely regarded as the greatest superhero film ever made, so it’s only natural that every last second of it would be examined. Two of the things that people love most about it are how great of a villain the Joker is and how it is able to transcend the superhero genre.

Appreciating Christopher Nolan: Batman Begins

If you watched Memento and Insomnia, then you probably would have had a hard time guessing that Christopher Nolan would be the next person to direct a Batman movie. But that’s exactly what happened. Nolan brings a completely new take to what a superhero movie could be.

Appreciating Christopher Nolan: Inception

I’m a little biased towards Inception because it is my favorite movie. It takes a totally original idea and is able to build a world around it in two and a half hours, all while crafting a story with memorable characters and iconic moments. Not to mention one of the most iconic final shots in film history. Inception is probably Nolan’s most well-known and universally liked film, other than the Dark Knight Trilogy, with good reason. It takes a deep dive into the mind of Dom Cobb to see what a father would do to get back to his kids.

Appreciating Christopher Nolan: The Prestige

Almost every time I watch a Christopher Nolan movie, I think, “Wow, this may be his best one.” The Prestige is no different. Nolan presents this story in such a unique way. If you thought he couldn’t come up with another original and imaginative way of presenting a story than he did for Memento, you’d be wrong. He takes you for a wild ride whenever he can.

Review: Avengers: Infinity War

They actually did it. An MCU movie actually made things count. Avengers: Infinity War may not be a perfect movie in the strictest sense, but it’s just about exactly what you could hope for in this case. This was being built up to for ten years, and unlike the slightly disappointing Age of Ultron, this at least lives up to the hype.
