“Wonder” Adaption Stays True to Inspiring Message

“Wonder” Adaption Stays True to Inspiring Message

“Wonder” is a heartwarming, cheesy, shallow, feel-good film about a little boy who makes some friends despite being horribly ugly. Or at least, that’s what I expected walking into the theatre. What I got was a touching tale about a community peeling off their masks and discovering what it is to...

“Justice League” finally arrived to theaters on November 17 and looked to improve people’s negative view of the DC universe. Things didn't look good for the movie, as director Zack Snyder had to leave it for a time period because of a family tragedy. Then Joss Whedon, who took Snyder's place for...

“Murder on the Orient Express,” a book made movie by Agatha Christie, is an interesting take on the mystery genre. It has a beautiful set and scenery, but it’s plot and character development is lackluster at best. It’s attempts at making a meaningful outcome are overly cluttered and complicated...

"Thor: Ragnarok," the third in the series, has made some serious improvements from its predecessors. Marvel has slowly started to take itself less seriously and it’s surprisingly better than it might seem. Instead of trying to lace in a serious overtone, the movie just decidesd to focus on more humor...

“Geostorm” Is (Literally) One Disaster After Another

Dean Devlin’s “Geostorm” is perhaps one of the worst movies to ever grace the silver screen, and I am saying this in complete confidence. It's the sort of movie you can enjoy only if you turn your brain off. It is, in my opinion, god-awful, and if its 13 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes is any...

For many moviegoers, “Flatliners” seemed like it came out of nowhere. Being an obscure movie and having a generic plot, it did little to drum up much interest for me personally. However, a few social media platforms hopped on the “Flatliners” bandwagon. For example, Spotify created a new feature w...

On Sept. 8, 2017, horror movie enthusiasts couldn't wait for the remake of famed horror author Stephen King’s novel It. While the movie was promised to be beyond horrifying, it lacked the ability to leave the audience feeling afraid to exit the theatre due to its predictable plot, foreseeable antago...

The first Guardians of the Galaxy film became a major hit and a fan favorite because of its humor, awesome characters, thrilling action scenes, and a great soundtrack.

When Disney announced that they were going to remake “Beauty and the Beast,” I was skeptical to say the least. The original animated version was vastly loved by many people, which set the bar extremely high, and it consisted of so many characters that aren’t actually alive in real life. I was worried...

Comic book fans and moviegoers are raving about Hugh Jackman's last film playing Wolverine in "Logan." After 17 years of playing Wolverine, Jackman's final movie features him as a battle-weary and grizzled Wolverine. His healing power is almost gone. Mutants are rare now, and Wolverine spends his time...

After several weeks of anticipated action and mystery, “The Great Wall” misses the mark, by a lot. The trailer hyped this movie up way too much, making the delivery crash hard in the end. With a stale plot and rigid acting, the movie just comes off as boring. “The Great Wall” follows the adventure...
