Apr

The events of Captain America: The Winter Soldier had huge, huge implications for the rest of the Marvel universe, and we'll be seeing the ramifications of those events for years to come. By the end of the film though, the biggest question raised is, what happens to SHIELD now? In my opinion, the situation is not as cut-and-dried as the film presents it.

Jodorowsky's Dune, The Psychedelic SciFi Epic That Wasn't [Movie Review]

Apr
06

Alejandro Jodorowsky's scrapped Dune movie is the stuff of cult-film legend, and for good reason; not only was the source novel a bizarre blend of psychedelia, colonialism, and mysticism, Jodorowsky had also assembled an all-star cast of weirdos and luminaries, the likes of Salvador Dali, Orson Welles, and Pink Floyd, for starters. Frank Pavich's 2013 documentary of the project is a gleeful, if somewhat overly hyperbolic love-letter that brings us as close as we'll ever come to that fantastic dream.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier [Movie Review]

Apr
05

Out of the main four Avengers, Captain America is a clear stand out for many reasons. He’s the most grounded in reality, is a classic “good ol’ boy”, and has a clear presence as a leader. In Captain America: The First Avenger as well as The Avengers, we see him adapting to new situations and The Winter Soldier is no different. Now that he’s found a place in this new world, the true dilemma is whether he is ready to accept it.

Noah [Movie Review]

Apr
04

Biblical stories, whether you believe in them or not, are a great source for inspiration and open all kinds of creative storytelling. The story of Noah is one that is known to most of the Western world, and is mostly straight forward; while the story doesn’t have a defined story arc, it is often represented as a story of hope. However, is it possible to tell this story in a way that pleases both a Christian and secular audience, when it's director, Darren Aronofsky (Black Swan, Requiem for a Dream), is known for his dark subject matter?

Golden Time [Anime Review]

Apr

Golden Time, while a good romance, is also a great story of really finding yourself when a person is at the cusp of adulthood.
