Black Panther Rises Above Superhero Convention

By Matthew Dillon The newest and possibly most anticipated addition to the “Marvel Cinematic Universe,” Black Panther has managed to stick out in an overcrowded genre. Even as Marvel, as well as DC, seems hell bent on bombarding theaters with superhero films, Black Panther manages to distinguish itself well enough to the point where I…

The Force Falters in Star Wars: The Last Jedi

By Matthew Dillon   While not quite as incompetent or lifeless as the dark depths of the mid-2000s prequel trilogy, The Last Jedi does not live up to standards of the timeless Star Wars franchise. Taking place after 2015’s The Force Awakens, the eighth installment of the series follows the ongoing antics of the Resistance…

Thor: Ragnorak Is a Hilarious Superhero Adventure

By Greg Mysogland None of the leading characters of the vast Marvel Cinematic Universe needed a makeover more than Thor. Chris Hemsworth has always done fine work as the Marvel superhero version of the norse “God of Thunder,” but the most interesting parts of his solo films were always Thor’s sort of evil brother Loki (Tom…

Mediocre American Assassin Misses the Mark

By Matthew Dillon American Assassin is yet another painfully generic, forgettable action movie, depicting a young vigilante’s mission to stop Iran from employing a nuclear weapon. The film’s plot is as by the numbers as it gets, populated by a legion of forgettable clichés. It feels like a telemovie that wandered into theaters, failing to adhere…

Don’t Turn Your Back on IT

By Matthew Dillion Andres Muschietti’s IT is an adaptation of the classic Stephen King novel and one of the most genuinely scary films to come out in recent memory. Whereas most remakes tend to be awkward cash grabs, IT is one of those rare instances where the film is on par with, if not better…
