What I Really Think: The Maze Runner
The Maze Runner is not a great movie, but overall it was enjoyable.   Of the current run of post-apocalyptic-dystopia-future-young-adult-literature-adapted-to-film,
I actually enjoyed this more than The
Hunger Games. However, this movie isn’t without flaws....

Long Beach Comic Con
I went to the Long Beach Comic Con this past weekend.   It’s a nice mid-size convention.   It’s small enough to see everything in a day,
but big enough to still attract some nice talent.   I’ve enjoyed attending for the last few
years, but this year it was ...

Extradiegetic: Sleeping Beauty
Sleeping Beauty was Disney’s return to the
fairytale formula that had served him so well just a few years before with Cinderella and jump-started animated
cinema with Snow White .   Once again there are the usual fairytale trappings:
a princess, a prince, m...

Extradiegetic: Lady and the Tramp
Lady and the Tramp runs counter to the conventional wisdom that the protagonist needs to change
over the course of a story. In this film the protagonist is clearly Lady.   The story follows Lady throughout the film.   She is clearly the protagonist.   Usual...

What I Really Think: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
(Spoilers Ahead) I’ve been a bit of a fan of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
most of my life.   I liked the original
cartoon as a kid, and have kept one eye on the property since then.   Trying to watch the new versions that have

What I Really Think: Guardians of the Galaxy
(Spoiler’s Ahead) I went into Guardians
of the Galaxy hoping for a humorous and exciting romp and fortunately that’s
exactly what Marvel delivered.   This
movie is a lot of fun almost from beginning to end (the opening scene is a bit
heavy).   The character...

What I Really Think: Lucy
I went into Lucy with low expectations.   The meme that
people only use some small fractional amount of their brainpower long ago wore
thin on me.   The trailers and ads were clear Lucy was embracing this trope wholeheartedly.   So I braced for that fact go...

What I Really Think: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
(spoilers ahead) Overall, I really enjoyed Dawn of the Planet of the Apes .    I liked that the political situation between apes and humans and within
each group was complex.     Each had their own factions and individuals
working within them.   Nobody was ...

Extradiagetic: Peter Pan
Peter Pan is Disney’s fourteenth animated feature and a big success after the under-performing Alice in Wonderland.   While
the film carries the name of Peter Pan, the movie is really more about
Wendy.    The story begins and ends with
her, and her arc is t...

Extradiagetic: Alice in Wonderland
Stories are usually about interesting characters. But there are times where it’s better to have
a more mundane protagonist. Alice in Wonderland is one such
story.     It’s easy to overlook the importance of the ordinary in
stories. After all, it’s the fanta...
