The Prince of Egypt.
OKLAHOMA CITY – A couple of months ago, I posted a column previewing what would be my first time watching Prince of Egypt. At the end, I wrote that a review would follow.
Nearly three months have elapsed without a review.
Since I wish not to be called a dirty, rotten, no-good, filthy liar, I’m finally making good on that promise. So, all that ado aside, and certainly without further ado, here are my thoughts. Continue reading
The long wait is over.
OKLAHOMA CITY – Nearly four years ago (March 2013) my buddy Brazle and I embarked on a zany journey through Disney’s catalogue of traditionally-animated movies (I cannot believe it has been that long); I called it the Epic Disney Watchfest. We covered something like thirty-five movies in thirty-seven days, starting with Continue reading
The impossibilities are endless. Nice tag.
OKLAHOMA CITY – If thou art searching for an highly acclaimed motion picture, thou wilt do well in seeking out Dr. Strange. The latest Marvel movie has received high marks indeed, scoring an 8/10 on Imdb.com and a mighty 90% on Rotten Tomatoes. Less scintillating but still strong, the film is standing at 72/100 on Metacritic.
In the opinion of this reviewer, such scores are a bit too high. While Dr. Strange is easy on the eyes and largely unobjectionable, in the end it simply is neither great nor highly memorable.
Coming to theaters three months ago.
OKLAHOMA CITY – My friend Katie said I should write a review of the latest Marvel movie, Captain America: Civil War. I’ve not been able to bring myself to write anything as the movie was entirely unremarkable. Today, though, I’ve found myself completely bored and realized I should write up my (sparse) thoughts.
Sweet! A superhero movie! How unique!
OKLAHOMA CITY – I finally watched Batman v Superman. At this point, I’m tired of superhero movies and wish they would stop coming for at least a couple of years. Like, I don’t even want to hear about one for awhile. Sure, I loved the Sam Raimi Spiderman movies, the first two Christian Bale Batman movies, and the first Ironman. Oh, and the first couple of X-Men movies were good, too. Continue reading
Who will win? Probably not the viewing public.
OKLAHOMA CITY – I am waiting for my friend Cary to pick me up so we can go watch Batman v Superman. I had no intention of supporting this movie financially, but I was kind of guilted into doing it by my friend Lauren. So, going into it, I want to make a couple of predictions. Continue reading
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a blockbuster movie.
OKLAHOMA CITY – Okay, so I realize that for many reading this, the Star Wars series is the greatest series in movie history. I further realize that many fans probably like the Star Wars series as much or more than they like their own children. And these people really, really love their children.
As such, I don’t see any point in trying to convince anyone that Star Wars: The Force Awakens isn’t super amazingly awesome and fabulous. That would be like me trying to convince a parent that his child isn’t wonderful, except even more so.
