    Doctor Strange 2016

    ★★★ Watched 22 Nov, 2016

    It's perfectly fine.

    While "Ant-Man" was over a year ago, I feel eerily the same sentiment as I did walking out of that movie. At this point, especially with the origin tales, it's getting really obvious how the wheels turn in these Marvel films. A, B, and C must happen so that by the end of the movie so-and-so person is truly Marvel superhero so-and-so.

    A, B, and C happen in "Doctor Strange", right down to the boring female supporting…

  • Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

    Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them 2016

    ★★ Watched 19 Nov, 2016

    I'm going to avoid controversy and play it safe with the "it's just not for me" argument.*

Of those that I did, I didn't care at all for "Wreck-It Ralph" and thought "Frozen" was patently mediocre. Positive reviews for "Zootopia" had me going 'Eh, whatever. Y'all said the same about Ralph and Frozen."

    Frankly, if you walked up to me yesterday and asked if I thought Disney had it in them in the foreseeable future to knock one straight out of…

  • The Big Short

    The Big Short 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 25 Dec, 2015

    What an odd circumstances under which to watch this.

    In my family we celebrate Christmas on the 24th more so than on the 25th. The extended family has a few places to be over the course of a few days so the gang finds a way to get together on the 24th and we have fun into the early morning until most part ways for other gatherings. There's a supper at my father's the 25th, and I'll be there later…
