The Best Films of 2018

I was lucky enough to be able to see more movies than ever before in 2018, and write about almost every single one of them. It’s been a fantastic experience, and I (thankfully) enjoyed far more movies that I saw than I disliked. Unfortunately, there were still plenty that I never got the opportunity to … Continue reading The Best Films of 2018

To Infinity – Black Panther

What can even be said about Black Panther that hasn’t already been touched on? There are hundreds of think pieces and articles, written by much smarter and better informed people than me, that go into full detail on why this film is such a big deal and so important.

To Infinity – Thor: Ragnarok

Ragnarok was left sitting in Marvel’s lot for a good while after The Dark World was released, and early concept images and logos for the film looked to be continuing with the same tone and look as the previous Thor films. When New Zealand director Taika Waititi came on board, all of that changed. Waititi … Continue reading To Infinity – Thor: Ragnarok

To Infinity – Spider-Man: Homecoming

It is a miracle in itself that Spider-Man was brought into the Marvel Cinematic Universe. It really only became possible after Sony’s Amazing Spider-Man 2 turned out to be a complete disaster. Marvel Studios would learn from the mistakes of the past Spider-Man franchises, ensuring Homecoming would become the best Spider-Man story since Sam Raimi’s … Continue reading To Infinity – Spider-Man: Homecoming

To Infinity – Doctor Strange

Doctor Strange is a very frustrating film. It sets itself apart from other Marvel films by being about the embracement of new ideas, the opening and expansion of the mind, and the rejection of all that we’ve known and thought before. It’s the spiritual over the physical, the teachings of Eastern ideals and philosophies as … Continue reading To Infinity – Doctor Strange

To Infinity – Captain America: Civil War

Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe kicked off with a bang. All of the Avengers, minus Hulk and Thor, are present in what is basically Avengers 2.5, and they’re forced to face the music for all of the casualties that they may or may not be responsible for while they’ve been off superheroing. Similar … Continue reading To Infinity – Captain America: Civil War

To Infinity – Ant-Man

After the massive scale and scope of Avengers: Age of Ultron, Marvel Studios decided to end Phase 2 of the MCU with something much smaller, in the literal sense. Ant-Man is a smaller story with lower stakes than any previous entry in the MCU, it was a nice way to wind down Marvel’s second act, … Continue reading To Infinity – Ant-Man
