    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2


    The best way to watch this movie is like it isn't part of a larger story, because this film sure does its best to tell its story that way. I think lots of people engage with this film as a part of the larger MCU (especially Phase 1-3). And because of that perspective going in there can be a lot to disappoint. This film is almost entirely character driven, it doesn't really have larger implications on the rest of the…

    I've been thinking recently about how I engage with film. And the most prevalent thought has been to "not look away" from the film. I mean this in the most literal sense of not averting my eyes from the screen, or blocking the screen if its an image that makes me uncomfortable.

    Leo is no masterpiece. Yet Leo is an incredibly fun time. It has outrageous CGI that borders on video game territory, wild swings in mood, and fun, engaging and lively action. Couple it with a fairly well told story about family and revenge and you’re in for a good time. I’m just a simple white guy with not a lot of knowledge of Indian cinema as a whole, so I missed A LOT of things that I think other audience…

    If you want a father-child relationship movie to watch with a parent this Holiday season go and watch Mitchell's Vs. Machines on Netflix instead.

    If you want lanky animated characters that have issues with their dad and go on a journey where they learn to accept each other then go and watch A Goofy Movie.

    This movie is not really worth the time. It is generic, safe as can be, predictable, and by the books. I was never surprised or…
