Movie Review: Avengers Endgame

Avengers: Endgame Directed By: Anthony Russo, Joe Russo Starring: Robert Downey Jr, Chris Evans, Mark Ruffalo My Rating: Despite the looming “Superhero Burnout“, this movie is crushing it at the box office. It is already breaking the same records The Force Awakens broke four years ago. I fully expect this film to continue to break records set by Star Wars, including top grossing movie of all time in the domestic box office. Honestly, I’m glad it’s a Marvel movie too. In the spirit of the #DontSpoilTheEndgame trend, this is a SPOILER FREE movie review, however if you have not seen Infinity War yet, then consider [… Click to Continue …]

Movie Review: Captain Marvel

Captain Marvel Directed By: Anna Boden Starring: Brie Larson, Samuel L Jackson My Rating: A Kree by the name of Vers (Brie Larson) crashes on Earth, circa 1995. She is hunting Skrull who are seeking technology the Kree do not want them to have. Assisting her on her mission is SHIELD agent Nick Fury. During her search she also has flashbacks that seem to be from a previous life. Are these flashbacks key to defeating the Skrull and/or helping her find out who she really is? Biggs’ Review I really enjoyed this movie. I can’t say if it’s the witty writing or the homage to [… Click to Continue …]

Movie Review: How to Train Your Dragon 3

How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World Directed By: Dean DeBloisStarring: Jay Baruchel, America Ferrera, Kit Harrington My Rating: If you have kids then you know that when they are young and they latch onto something, you’ll groan at the mention of its very name. If it weren’t for my daughter I probably never wouldn’t have watched any of the How to Train Your Dragon movies. When she latched on to these movies, I actually didn’t mind. The depth of the world is immersive and suddenly you find yourself talking about the lore and characters. Despite watching all the different series, several times at [… Click to Continue …]

Biggs Zone - 2018 Year In Review

It is now 18 years after the dreaded Y2K scare. I wonder if there is anyone still hiding in their bunkers. While the Y2K date issue was a valid bug in most software, it would never have caused the catastrophe the fear-mongers were predicting. Be that as it may, 2018 is over and another year is in the books. Most of us are still here but its hard to tell if any of us still like each other. Lots of people still have a hard time seeing past party boundaries and misguided political correctness. I’m going to cover a lot of the usual retrospective topics, [… Click to Continue …]

Movie Review: The Grinch

The Grinch Directed By: Scott Mosier, Yarrow Cheney Starring:  Benedict Cumberbatch, Rashida Jones, Pharrell Williams My Rating:  I’m not really sure why there has to be another retelling of How the Grinch Stole Christmas. The only thing I found appealing was the voice acting of Benedict Cumberbatch. If I didn’t have a 4-year-old that loves the Grinch I probably wouldn’t have spent the time (or money) to see this movie in the theater. With that said, this is my movie review of The Grinch. I don’t think I need to provide a synopsis of the movie. You should know the story of How The Grinch Stole [… Click to Continue …]

Movie Review: Incredibles 2

Incredibles 2 Directed By: Brad Bird Starring:  Craig T. Nelson, Holly Hunter, Samuel L. Jackson My Rating:  It’s been 14 years since the last Incredibles movie. During the 14 years, animated movie fans have been clamoring, relentless for the sequel. Disney/Pixar finally gave in to the cacophony. I don’t know why it took over a decade to produce a sequel. I understand animation takes quite a bit of work, but perhaps it was the challenge of bringing the entire cast back. Whatever the case may be, they pick up exactly where the last movie ended. The family of heroes work together, in a group storming [… Click to Continue …]
