    Avengers: Endgame Review:

    The conclusion of the Marvel Cinematic Universe's Infinity Saga has arrived, and it is nothing short of a satisfying ending. After the tragic and shocking events of Avengers: Infinity War, the remaining Avengers plan to avenge their fallen teammates and defeat Thanos. To avoid spoilers, this review will be brief.

    The cast performances are absolutely amazing. Robert Downey Jr. gives his best performance yet as Tony Stark/Iron Man. After losing Peter Parker, Stark's goal is very personal.…

    'The Karate Kid' Review:

    With the release of the 'Cobra Kai' series trailer, I figured this was as good a time as any to release my review for the film that started it all. 'The Karate Kid' is my favorite film of all time. This is mainly because there is something important and entertaining in each scene. There are so many fun facts about this film that I couldn't even share them all. When this film was released in the…

    Bad Boys for Life Review:

    Starting off really honestly here, I'm not really a fan of this franchise. Don't get me wrong, Will Smith and Martin Lawrence, but most of the action either feels too long or too over-the-top, and the plots of the first two films are not very investing. I never really thought a third film would happen, but after seeing the trailer, I have to admit that I was impressed. Having seen this franchise for the first…

    Bad Boys II


    Bad Boys II may have some entertaining action sequences (albeit over-the-top at times), and Will Smith and Martin Lawrence still have a likable dynamic, but this film doesn't do a good job justifying its existence, as it is 30-40 minutes too long, the script is pretty weak, and there isn't much that is likable.

    It really doesn't feel like a Michael Bay film until the third act, but Bad Boys manages to be a solid first entry into an iconic action franchise. What really stops me from saying that this is a great movie is there are several scenes that are edited poorly, the plot logic can be really bad at times, and even though this is my first time watching this film, I can already tell it won't continue to age well.

    High School Musical 3: Senior Year


    High School Musical 3: Senior Year Review:

    Man, the movie theater was packed when this movie first came out. It was such a big deal because Disney made the jump from TV films to a bigger budget film in theaters. At the time, it was a really big deal. High School Musical 3: Senior Year is about literally what it says: senior year and graduation. This film manages to do what few can: be better than both of its predecessors.…
