While I am not the biggest fan of the live-action Transformers movies, I do appreciate the “realistic” robot and vehicle designs the series has spawned.

It’s been awhile since I was so excited for a movie that I saw it twice in its opening week. While waiting to pre-purchase tickets for Black Panther, I developed an unhealthy obsession with Fandango, and my wallet wept when the Funko POP! figures were released. I was excited to go to Wakanda, y’all, and Wakanda did…Read more...

Black Panther is now in theaters and it’s great. Like, really great. And one of the best things about it is you don’t need to be super familiar with Marvel’s 17 previous movies to enjoy it. It totally works on its own. However, if you are familiar with those movies, maybe you walked out of the theater with a question.Read more...

Pretty much anything can be improved by adding Jeff Goldblum, but Taika Waititi’s Thor: Ragnarok really used the actor to his fullest potential. Marvel has been releasing a few of their bonus clips from the upcoming Blu-ray release and with them we get to see Goldblum at his... Goldblum-iest.Read more...

Women have always been a key part of Star Wars’ mythos, but to hear the way some people reacted to The Last Jedi, you’d think that they feel Star Wars would be better off without any female characters at all. The Force Awakens director J.J. Abrams has identifying their real issue.Read more...

It’s probably greedy to stop and wonder what could make a movie like Jurassic Park—which made over a billion dollars at the box office—even more profitable. But then Hot Wheels went and revealed a new line of half-truck-half-dinosaur character cars for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and suddenly a whole new avenue of…Read more...

Jurassic Park didn’t exactly tone down its violence and make its dino-stars seem like friendly petting zoo fodder, but that didn’t stop a part of me from fantasizing about one day riding a velociraptor like a mighty stallion. A fantasy that, thanks to Fisher-Price, can now be a reality for kids with this Power Wheels…Read more...

After three and a half seasons, the final few episodes of Star Wars Rebels will begin airing this Monday, February 19. The show doesn’t have a ton of questions to answer or stories to wrap up—which is possibly unsurprising, since we know its saga is ending shortly before Rogue One and A New Hope begin—but there are…Read more...

I’ve been going back and forth on what the most mind-blowing part of the Super Mario Bros. The Movie Archive is.
