Ready Player One – Movie Reviewready player onealving4

Tue, 10 Apr 2018 02:56:17 +0000

The paradox about watching the Ready Player One movie is that I would probably have enjoyed it a lot more if I hadn’t read the book, by Ernest Cline, a few years ago (and then again last month to get psyched for the movie). I had been very much anticipating this movie because the book … Continue reading Ready Player One – Movie Review

Black Panther – Movie Reviewnullalving4

Wed, 21 Feb 2018 02:59:57 +0000

I was never a fan of the Black Panther comics. His generic animal-based super-strength and agility didn’t really impress, and his background as a king of a technologically-advanced African nation was interesting, but less so in a comic book universe where technology can do anything a writer and artist wants to imagine. On screen, however, … Continue reading Black Panther – Movie Review

Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Movie Reviewalving4

Sat, 23 Dec 2017 03:37:44 +0000

I rewatched The Force Awakens on Netflix before going to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi, and so I went into the theatre pumped for some storm trooper firefights, some lightsabre clashes, some new alien creatures (both cute and gruesome) and some answers to the many questions left behind by the first movie. Some answers … Continue reading Star Wars: The Last Jedi – Movie Review

Coco – Movie Reviewpixar-coco-guitaralving4

Thu, 21 Dec 2017 19:12:54 +0000

I know that there have been a lot of animated films lately, and anyone with kids has already gone to see Coco and moved on, but I just saw it and still want to say how great I thought the movie was. Pixar’s track record has slipped a bit from the flawless hit-factory that it … Continue reading Coco – Movie Review

The Shape of Water – Movie Reviewalving4

Wed, 20 Dec 2017 02:55:46 +0000

Writer/director Guillermo del Toro is known for his creepy creativity and imaginatively dark and gothic style, which I recently got to peek into at the “At Home With Monsters” exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario. His movies have ranged from character tales about individuals who are haunted (both emotionally by past tragedies, and actually … Continue reading The Shape of Water – Movie Review

Thor: Raganarok – Movie Reviewthorragnarokalving4

Wed, 08 Nov 2017 03:00:03 +0000

After Wonder Woman and Spider-man Homecoming, Thor: Ragnarok seems to prove that we’ve hit a good patch of superhero movies at the moment. Starting out with a tongue-in-cheek, fourth-wall-breaking monologue fakeout, I was having a good time with the charming humour right from the start — which didn’t let up all the way to the … Continue reading Thor: Raganarok – Movie Review

Fall TV 2017 – Returning ShowsWill & Grace - Season 1alving4

Tue, 03 Oct 2017 03:24:31 +0000

If you’ve read any of my recent posts, you’ll know that I’m a big fan of TV comedy. So, it also won’t be a surprise that most of the shows that I watch regularly are sitcoms as well. With that in mind, I’m going to talk about the dramas first, to get it out of … Continue reading Fall TV 2017 – Returning Shows

Mon, 02 Oct 2017 03:31:36 +0000

After a pretty unexciting summer movie season, it would have been nice to come home to some exciting new shows this fall. Alas, so far some aren’t too promising despite a strong pedigree, and others are downright terrible. Good thing there are still a number of returning shows to keep us satisfied (I’ll get to those … Continue reading Fall TV 2017 – New Shows

2017 Summer of Sitcom Binge-watchingalving4

Mon, 18 Sep 2017 04:30:54 +0000

From my lack of reviews over the summer, it may be obvious that I, like critics and audiences everywhere, think this was the worst summer movie season ever. I only got out to a couple of movies in the theatre, so what have I been doing to satisfy my pop-cultural cravings over the summer? I’ve … Continue reading 2017 Summer of Sitcom Binge-watching

Spider-man: Homecoming – Movie Reviewspider-man-homecoming-clip-994989-1280x0alving4

Thu, 20 Jul 2017 02:56:09 +0000

After so many incarnations, it’s hard to believe that another reboot of the Spider-man story could be fun and fresh, but I really enjoyed Homecoming, and a lot of the credit goes to this younger version of the web-slinging hero, and the exuberant performance by rising star Tom Holland. While I had already raved about … Continue reading Spider-man: Homecoming – Movie Review
