  • Alternate Avengers 2 & 3 story
    So. Don’t get me wrong, I loved Infinity War (Avengers 3). Even though it left me numb ...
  • Avengers Infinity War – what does the post credit scene mean?
    Major spoilers. Do not read until AFTER you see Infinity War. What happens – In the post-credits scene of Avengers – Infinity War, Nick Fury and Cobie Smulders (Hill) are alerted of Thanos’ attack on Wakanda. While they’re gathering information, a car crashes in front of them. They check the car and ...
  • How to Dress Like You’re From Wakanda in Black Panther
    Black Panther style is making waves on and off the runway, according to sources around the world. Literally. In fact, if you Google “black panther fashion clothes” it turns up 4,780,000 results. There’s a whole lot of fashion photos, style ideas, fashion tips and general garment excitment, all based on ...
  • Prettiest Live Action Movies
    Here’s a fun topic, a list of the “prettiest” ever live action movies. They have to be gorgeous on their own merits, plot aside. I’m looking for outstanding visuals. What qualifies as pretty? Lots of color, slick visual or computer generated effects that stand up through time, creative set-pieces, stylish ...
  • Thor Ragnarok – Demented & Fun Deleted Scenes
    The Blu-Ray for Thor: Ragnarok has some immensely entertaining deleted scenes. Some are creepy fun (like the Grandmaster’s proclivities and polysexual tastes) and others are just a joy to watch and re-watch (Bruce Banner sucking down..um…noodles?) You should probably view these in the order presented here, which weaves around and ...
  • Mark Ruffalo Sneaks in a Hulk Movie
    We’ve had two prior Hulk movies no one was happy with, and then Avengers rolled around. His friendship with Tony Stark enchanted, matching Robert Downy ...
  • Movie Review – Isle of Dogs
    Do see Isle of Dogs if it comes anywhere near your theater. It’s creative and quirky, with a great voiceover cast of big stars…and this is honestly something I haven’t seen before. Everyone in the production really pulled out a stylish little film. There are moments in this stop-animation tale ...
  • Movie Review -Ready Player One
    Ready Player One: a likable, but not lovable movie. I think the writers figured the target audience (teenagers) aren’t mature enough to notice the clichés and the older crowd would be placated with the numerous 80’s pop culture references. (OMG, that’s ...
  • Best Movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (Up to Thor: Ragnarok)
    Here’s RunPee Jilly’s list of the best-to-worst films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Since so many of these movies are good, and there are so many of them, I’ve chosen to rank the films by “tier”. Top Tier, Middle Tier, and Bottom Tier. (And one that is simply Bad.) I’m ...
  • MCU Movie Rewatch – Thor 2: The Dark World
    I was surprised at how easy Thor 2 was to re-watch. I remember it as “the boring installment.” It’s still not exciting on the level of the top tier of movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe (Avengers, Civil War, Black Panther and Thor’s own 3 – Ragnarok). Making myself even ...
  • Movie Review – Solo: A Star Wars Story
    I’m certainly not disappointed. I think this one was better than the other new Star Wars movies, except for Rogue One. I’m impressed that they managed to hit all of the important back story elements to Han’s character, without it feeling forced or cheesy. My only complaint is that the story dragged ...
  • Movie review: Tomb Raider
    This movie follows the textbook outline for Writing Action Movies for DUMMIES perfectly. I’m not trying to imply that Tomb Raider was horrible — it’s just incredibly predictable. That’s why the “C” grade I gave it is smack in the middle of average. It’s important to remember: this is a story that began ...
  • Movie Review – A Wrinkle in Time
    I’m trying to figure out how to make A Wrinkle in Time make any sense. I love fantasy and science fiction, and am very forgiving of stories in these genres. From the trailer, I figured this would be a really pretty excursion into time travel, with kids discovering their powers ...
  • Movie review: Sampson
    It saddens me to have to give a movie about one of the greatest stories from the Bible such a poor grade, but Samson was so poorly made — I was compelled to give it a failing grade. The direction was sub par, the pacing was tedious, and the acting was an ...
  • Movie review: Annihilation
    This movie does a good job of creating an atmosphere of mystery. It feels like it’s going somewhere profound, but just ends up being bizarre and cliche. This movie felt a lot like the movie Arrival. It builds mysteriously and there are lots of flashbacks. But where the ending of Arrival was, for ...
  • Movie Review – Black Panther – One Incredible Party
    Opening night at Black Panther was an all-out celebration. All six showings at my cinema were sold out, and showings continued to sell out through the weekend. But the audience was ecstatic at my premier, completely into the event, dressed in traditional African attire, laughing, cheering, applauding, hooting, and having a ...
  • Movie Review: Maze Runner – The Death Cure
    I’m a huge fan of dystopian stories, and I liked the first Maze Runner book and film (the one that had an actual maze and runners). It was a fresh and intriguing idea. I didn’t see the second, and I was definitely lost in this third movie. Maybe the story ...
  • Movie Rewatch – Jurassic Park
    It’s been a long time since the first Jurassic Park graced our theaters, but it’s still the best. The CGI effects have vastly improved since 1993, but the story is what matters most — and the original still brings back the happy tears and goosebumps I felt back then, seeing ...
  • Movie Review – Star Wars – A New Hope
    *A New Hope* runs very closely to the number one spot that *Empire Strikes Back* occupies in the SW oeuvre — clipping its heels, as it were. It started the whole mythology and adventure in a well told opening story. It’s almost perfect. But the “official” name, *A New Hope,* ...
  • Movie Review – Spider-Man Homecoming
    Definitely one of the better Avenger movies, and I would say it’s easily the best *Spider-Man* of the bunch. This is a much lighter film than its predecessors. There was laughter throughout the movie, with a few really hilarious moments. The acting was superb. Tom Holland, as the Spider-Man, was delightful. ...
  • Movie Review – The Terminator
    The Terminator is one of the truly perfect films in the science fiction genre. Sure, there are temporal paradox/causality loop issues, but you have to handwave that and go along with the premise. And why not? If you’re going to tell a time travel story about what happens when the ...
  • Movie Review – Downsizing
    I’m a little annoyed at Downsizing. The trailers presented this as a lightweight, fluffy comedy about being resized to five inches tall (in order to use less planetary resources). Great! Except this isn’t actually a comedy, and you barely get the sense of being shrunk. After the first half hour, ...
  • Movie Review – Jumanji 2: Welcome to the Jungle
    This sequel version of Jumanji is adorable and funny. Predictable, yes, but the story is based on a video game plot, so it’s kind of a baked-in thing. It’s also bit too pat in how each teenage character gets the perfect game avatar to grow as a person, but this is ...
  • Movie Review – The Last Jedi
    It’s too soon to know how I feel about this latest installment to the Star Wars saga. A lot happens, at a brisk pace. We have fleeting introductions to a bunch of brand-new characters we never get to know; why they rounded up well-known actors for little more than extended ...
  • All Star Wars Movies, ranked by personal watchablility. Now including Rise of Skywalker
    What is rewatchability? It means I can put in a movie and watch it all the way through for fun, over and over and over again through the years. (This is different than having a movie on in the background while cleaning house or something…that’s another category). I want something ...
