The Pixar Factory Does Another Nostagic Reprint in ‘Incredibles 2’

Out of all the sequels Pixar fans have been clamoring for the most, Incredibles 2 easily tops the list. To the fact that superhero movies are even more popular than they were 13 and a half years ago when the original debuted the year of Spider-Man 2, it’s a bit disappointing this film doesn’t have more to say about…

With ‘Solo’, the Star Wars Brand Hits a New Low

There was a lot of skepticism in the air going into this movie; the changing of directors midway through and Academy Award Winner Ron Howard, arguably the most accomplished director to helm a Star Wars movie re-shooting about 80% of the film.

A complaint I’ve held about major comedies of late, is that they aren’t really movies so much as they are a sketch vehicles that deliver jokes almost exclusively through dialogue. There’s usually very little directorial effort…

Aaron Sorkin Turns ‘Molly’s Game’ into the Cinemax Version of His Work

On paper, a match between Molly Bloom and Aaron Sorkin and is perfect. They’re both slick operators who hail from the bottom of over achieving families, they are both seeming meticulous and simultaneously prone to getting suddenly sloppy, and they both seemingly suffer soundly from inferiority complexes. Of course it’s nothing new to report that Molly’s Game…
