Opinion: “Mission: Impossible Fallout” (2018)

As you might know by now, I’m a big fan of the Mission: Impossible franchise.

Opinion: “Anastasia” (1997)

I’m a big fan of animation, whether it’s stop-motion, 3D or 2D animation, I’m all for it… except for when they’re musicals.

Opinion: “You’re Next” (2011)

Adam Wingard, the man behind The Guest, but also behind the 2017 classic Death Note, became quite popular in 2011 when he released You’re Next, which is a horror home-invasion movie that’d supposedly subvert everything you’d come to expect from a home-invasion film. Critics gave it raving reviews, though audiences weren’t really the biggest fan … Continue reading Opinion: “You’re Next” (2011)
