Kristen Stewart should be in the next Captain America
Text Article

“It’s a real shame, because if she had found a role in a better franchise to finally launch her into A-list status, those very traits that people hate about her now might have been her most endearing qualities to many of those same people.”

“There’s one thing Marvel fans, movie fans, and pretty much all of civilized society are in unanimous agreement upon: Please, not another Spider-Man origin story.”

American Sniper is not the real Chris Kyle, and that’s okay

“I kind of hate that people are assuming that the film is trying to sanctify Chris Kyle by portraying him not as he was, but as, well, Bradley Cooper trying to finally win an Oscar. ”

Fifty Shades of Grey (2015)

“Yet, as a person, I like Jamie Dornan more for not being able to be the twat waffle that Christian is.”

Valentine (2001)

“Easily one of the worst films released as part of the Scream-inspired slasher renaissance of the late ‘90s and early ‘00s.”

The Bay-ification of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014)

Ready Player One (2011)
Text Article | Book Review

“Set in the not-so-distant future of 2044, the plot follows 18-year-old Wade Watts AKA Parzival, as he spends his days hunting for an Easter egg in his favorite video game. Sounds kind of uneventful, doesn’t it? Or at least, it sounds like my Saturday afternoons, and therefore not exactly novel-worthy material, but the book is surprisingly awesome and realistic.”

The Time Traveler’s Wife (2009)
Text Article | Movie Review

“In the movie’s defense, it tries to dial down the pedo vibe, but it’s a bit futile when the source material is this inherently creepy.”

  Posted January 27, 2015 by Ivan K
The Curious Case of Benjamin Button (2008)
Text Article | Movie Review

“We expect Benjamin to have interesting things happen to him, but no, he’s just a boring man with an odd condition.”

“If you’re going to do this show right, the fans deserve far, far better plotting and planning than they got the first time around.”

Edge of Tomorrow (2014)
Text Article | Movie Review

“Director Doug Liman channels Harold Ramis, albeit taking things in a very different direction (less Andie MacDowell, more Alien MindControl).”

Which is worse: Bad or boring?

“Is it better to be bad and remembered, or bland and forgotten? And does this apply to all media?”

Predestination (2014)
Text Article | Movie Review

“Sci-fi fans looking for boilerplate action might be bored by the long stretches of exposition and introspection, but that’s precisely what makes the movie memorable.”
