You're not just a guy in a Bat costume?

Review: Frank

Frank is without a doubt one of the strangest films of this year and one of the strangest I’ve seen. After all the whole film is about a band singer that wears a giant head and never takes it off. Weirder is that the man wearing this head is one of the newest popular faces in movies Michael Fassbender. Yes, this is a movie starring Michael Fassbender and he wears a giant head, what can be…

Review: 22 Jump Street

MV5BMTcwNzAxMDU1M15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNDE2NTU1MTE@._V1__SX1202_SY655_21 Jump Street shouldn’t have worked. A movie like that shouldn’t have been as good as it was. And because of that a sequel should have worked as well as this works. But we shouldn’t be surprised because the minds behind this are Phil Lord and Chris Miller, the duo that has made a career about proving people wrong.

Just like they did in The LEGO Movie they make fun of Hollywood’s movie formula.…

Review: How to Train your Dragon 2

MV5BMzMwMTAwODczN15BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMDk2NDA4MTE@._V1__SX1202_SY655_People seem to forget that sequels aren’t supposed to be better than their predecessor, they are just the continuation of the story that was already told. A sequel does not need to be better than the one before to be a good film, it just needs to continue the story in the best way possible. That’s exactly what How to Train your Dragon 2 does, it continues to tell us the story of the awkward…

Is also no surprise that it’s doing good on the box office. What it is surprising it’s how good this adaptation is, because most YA adaptations aren’t as good as the source of material. 

But the reason The Fault in Our Stars works so well is thanks to cast. The young cast of Shailene…

Review: A million ways to die in the West

MV5BMTQ0NDcyNjg0MV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMzk4NTA4MTE@._V1__SX1222_SY612_As the first minutes roll on and it shows amazing shots of the West you are amazed by it, but that’s it. The film visually looks stunning. The costumes and the scenery are beautiful, but there’s nothing else. It’s amazing how A Million Ways to Die in the West is written by the same person that wrote Ted. Are we sure that Seth MacFarlene wrote Ted? He hasn’t made a good comedy show or a good film…

Justice League 2018?

Warner Brothers announced that a Justice League movie will follow Superman/Batman, and Zack Snyder will be in charge of it. I should be excited but I’m not. The last few years DC/WB hasn’t produced the best films, an example could be that awful Green Lantern movie. Also unlike Marvel they don’t seem to have a long term plan to expand this universe. They just seem to plan films with the sole…
