Movie Review - Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Directed by: Gareth Edwards Starring: Felicity Jones, Alan Tudyk My Rating:  A second Star Wars movie in a year is a dream come true for Star Wars nerds the world over. I saw this movie in a Dolby Cinema off of Times Square in New York City. It’s one of 10 Dolby Cinema theaters in the country and this should be the only way to watch a Star Wars movie. Rogue One takes a different approach to telling a story in the Star Wars universe. It’s a movie that isn’t part of the main story but it does make a [… Click to Continue …]

Movie Review: Suicide Squad

Suicide Squad Directed by: David Ayer Starring: Will Smith, Jared Leto, Margot Robbie My Rating:  It has been a while since my last movie review post. Batman vs Superman (BvS) may have been the last one I did so it’s serendipitous that Suicide Squad is next. I can’t believe there was no warning that you should see BvS before you see Suicide Squad. It picks up shortly after the events of BvS so you should watch that first, if you don’t want a spoiler. Suicide Squad is esoteric to comic geek canon. In other words, if you are not familiar with DC villains then you probably have no [… Click to Continue …]

Movie Review: Batman vs Superman

I did see Batman vs Superman. I have been talking smack about this movie since it came out and the reviews were so awful. I’ve mostly been doing it to those of my friends that give me a hard time about Star Wars (despite its $932 million in domestic box office sales). I’ve also been doing it because I knew I was going to see the movie. Typically I won’t be too quick to publicly judge a popular movie like this unless I intended to see it (after all, I did watch Titanic before I finally decided I didn’t like it). In the spirit of full disclosure, [… Click to Continue …]

Star Wars: My Inner Child Awakens

I have been working on this post (whether its written or in my head) since I saw The Force Awakens December 24th. The thing I struggled with the most was giving this post a proper title that not only reflected how I felt about the film but also what this post is going to be about (other than simply my nerdy review). I settled on “My Inner Child Awakens” because not only is it a play on the film’s title but it’s how I felt watching the movie. If you have talked to me in person or followed any of my Twitter or Facebook posts then you [… Click to Continue …]

Movie Review: Ender's Game

My Rating: Starring: Asa Butterfield, Harrison Ford, Sir Ben Kingsley Plot: I’m not going to go into the plot much because I encourage you to read the book. The book is amazing and pretty much my all time favorite book. Andrew Ender Wiggin is a prodigy. He has the ability to counter nearly any enemy attach, and he’s only 11 years old. His remarkable abilities attract the attention of military leader Colonel Graff who believes that Ender may be Earth’s last hope against an alien attack, but first Ender must complete Battle School to receive the proper training. Biggs’ Synopsis: As an avid fan of [… Click to Continue …]

Movie Review: Identity Thief

My [Rating: 3] Starring: Melissa McCarthy, Jason Bateman Synopsis: Sandy Patterson (Bateman) is great at his job, married, two kids, one on the way. He leads a perfect life. His world is turned upside down when his identity is stolen from someone (McCarthy) on the other side of the country. If he wants to keep his job and get his life back, he will need to bring the thief in himself. Unfortunately he’s not the only one that’s out to get her. Biggs’ Review: Unfortunately this was one of those movies where most of the funny scenes were shown in the trailer. Perhaps my expectations [… Click to Continue …]
