Plot:       ☆☆☆ Acting:   ☆☆☆☆ Visuals:  ☆☆☆☆ Music:    ☆☆☆ Overall: 14/20  – B Director: Taika Waititi Actors: Chris Hemsworth, Tom Hiddleston, Cate Blanchett, Mark Ruffalo, Jeff Goldblum There were few movies I was looking forward to more than Thor: Ragnarok.

Black Panther (2017)

Plot:       ☆☆☆☆☆ Acting:   ☆☆☆☆☆ Visuals:  ☆☆☆☆☆ Music:    ☆☆☆ Overall: 18/20  – A Director: Ryan Coogler Actors: Chadwick Boseman, Michael B. Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, Danai Gurira This is one of, if not my absolute favorite origin story to date that MCU has created. It is vibrant, exciting, and amazing in just about every aspect. While unfortunately,…

Movie Reelz: Stardust (2007)

Plot:       ☆☆☆☆ Acting:   ☆☆☆☆☆ Visuals:  ☆☆☆☆☆ Music:    ☆☆☆☆☆ Overall: 19/20  –  A   Director: Matthew Vaughn Actors: Charlie Cox, Claire Danes, Sienna Miller, Mark Strong, Michelle Pfeiffer   I’m a sucker for a good fairytale.

Beauty and the Beast

Plot:       ☆☆☆☆ Acting:   ☆☆☆☆☆ Visuals:  ☆☆☆☆☆ Music:    ☆☆☆☆ Overall: 18/20  –  A Let’s face it. It is a world of sequels, repeats, and endless superhero movies (though Logan is totally worth it).

Doctor Strange

**Several spell books worth of Spoilers** It’s been awhile since I’ve posted about a movie, I know. October and I never get along when it comes to the real world and unfortunately, time (and money) ran out faster than I would have liked. While there were several movies that passed through the theaters that I…

Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

  **Hollow-sized Spoilers** This doesn’t happen often to me. Usually, when it comes to book adaptations, I never become inspired to read the original source material, since it’s rare that I’ve managed to read the book prior to seeing the movie. Now, having seen Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, I have to admit, I’m…

I knew the basic premise going in…
