Beware, kinda-spoilers ahead. Recently I had the good fortune to see Interstellar again, but this time in a 70mm IMAX presentation. It was a good excuse to see a friend again, but I was also excited because I know that Christopher Nolan knows his craft and how to make the most of film as a […]Read more "Why I Love Interstellar"
There are two fictional worlds that I love to visit more than any others. If I get sucked into some sort of Inception–esque dreamscape, it’s going to feature Jedi starfighters flying over Gotham City. Conveniently, they both feature Liam Neeson as a teacher! Knowing this, a friend challenged me via text message. He asked, if […]Read more "A Galaxy Far, Far Away vs. A Dark Knight: Which One Would I Choose?"

It’s just as cartoony in many respects, but at the same time a bit less hokey. That’s not so […]Read more "The Amazing Spider-Man: A Review"
I saw The Avengers a few nights ago (finally) and I have to say, I really liked it. Even days later, thinking about it, I really liked it a lot. In fact, I probably like it more now that I’ve thought back over it. Instead of rehashing all of the praise it’s gotten already, I […]Read more "My Review of The Avengers"
This blog post was inspired by a running conversation with The Korean, which once again came up at the Convocation. He’s a big supporter of the 3D craze taking the world by storm, lamenting only that there aren’t more movies coming out in the format. While I’m not a detractor of 3D (used well, any […]Read more "Format Smack-Down: IMAX versus 3D"
