‘Hobbs & Shaw’ Review: ‘Fast & Furious’ Spin-off A Overly Excessive Love Letter To Action Films

The wordily-titled Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw is a movie that loves movies and boasts a passionate familiarity with the overtly macho action flicks of the 1980's and 1990's. I imagine it as a wide-eyed youngster skipping out of the theater after seeing Tango & Cash for the first time with a big smile on … Continue reading ‘Hobbs & Shaw’ Review: ‘Fast & Furious’ Spin-off A Overly Excessive Love Letter To Action Films

‘Incredibles 2’ Afterthoughts

By Jordan Peterson | @thefilmmajor It's easy to imagine a world in which nearly every review of Incredibles 2 mentions how long it's been since the first 'Incredibles' film hit theaters. It only makes sense. Fourteen years is a long time. It also makes sense that those same critics would then pose some form of … Continue reading ‘Incredibles 2’ Afterthoughts

‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ review

By Jordan Peterson | @thefilmmajor The most important stories in the life of swashbuckling smuggler Han Solo have already been told. After helping rid the galaxy of the oppressive empire, befriending a space wizard, and marrying a princess, everything else seems pretty forgettable. Alas, here we are staring down the blaster scope of a Han … Continue reading ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ review

‘Ready Player One’ review

By Jordan Peterson | @thefilmmajor Cue Van Halen's "Jump." A rampaging King Kong leaps from the Empire State Building, a time-traveling DeLorean narrowly escapes the chomping mandible of a hungry T-Rex, the Iron Giant mercilessly pummels Mecha-Godzilla, and Batman scales a blizzardy Mount Everest. If it sounds like a lot, that's because it is. And … Continue reading ‘Ready Player One’ review
