‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’ Review – An Overwhelming Spectacle

It is a period of civil war. It is late 2017. Colin Trevorrow (Jurassic World) has been fired from Episode IX after having been hired two years prior only to be replaced by JJ Abrams (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) the same month, with Chris Terrio (Argo) acting as co-writer. Cut to December, (and although…

‘The Mandalorian’ Chapter 5 Review – New Faces on a Familiar Planet

The last episode of The Mandalorian solidified the series’ first season trajectory: a loose overarching plot of a Mando (Pedro Pascal) trying to protect a mysterious force-sensitive child (dubbed “Baby Yoda” by the fans) on the run, with a few standalone episodes along the way. Chapter 4, Sanctuary, very much felt like a self-contained story, but one…

‘Frozen II’ Review – Bold, Bloated, and Beautiful

Proper theatrical sequels to Disney animated films are a very rare thing. Not counting Pixar, the only animated sequels that Disney has given a wide release are The Rescuers Down Under, Return to Never Land, The Jungle Book 2, and Ralph Breaks the Internet. Frozen II is the fifth one to be added to this exclusive…

A worthy follow-up to the inaugural episode, the second chapter of The Mandalorian builds upon its predecessor in nearly every aspect. ‘Chapter 2’ takes the series in a slightly different direction. Rather than sharing the first episode’s indulgence in "badass" moments, this episode feels much more subtle and softspoken. This is not to say there…

‘Lady and the Tramp’ Review – Is this what we Should Expect from Disney Plus?

This may sound ridiculous nowadays but Disney used to be a company that took risks. So much of their filmography have been gambles: the avant-garde fusion of classical music and animation in Fantasia, the groundbreaking effects of combining live-action and backlit animation in Tron, or the more mature and interesting deviations from usual formula like The Hunchback…

Maleficent: Mistress of Evil review – A Gorgeous but Dull Waste of Potential

When it comes to the soulless, lifeless Disney remakes, Maleficent is one of the only ones that gets a pass. Instead of being a nearly shot for shot rehash of something we already know (except done far worse), it actually attempted something different by switching the story of Sleeping Beauty over to the villain’s perspective, and the…
