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
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.
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.

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.

OKLAHOMA CITY – Much has been written about the “surprising” success of War Room. The fact is, producers/brothers Stephen and Alex Kendrick have been surprising industry observers for years, so much so that Christianity-based movies are now a known quantity. Indeed, many writers have begun producing counter-stories about how unsurprising it is that such a blatantly Christian movie would be successful.
