Scott Pilgrim

Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy – the latest entry in Marvel’s ever-expanding Cinematic universe – is a movie that doesn’t feel like it belongs in 2014. Sure, it has some of the trappings of a modern movie, including copious and frequently gorgeous CGI as well as highly quotable dialogue; however, it also feels like a throwback […]

Of Ants and Men

Before things took a decidedly dark turn last weekend, the Internet’s attention had been fixated on one thin: director Edgar Wright’s sudden departure from Marvel’s upcoming Ant-Man film. As usual, the reason given for the split was “creative differences”, a phrase so vague that it could literally mean anything. Of course, vague statements and a […]

My Top 10 Movies of 2010 (With a Twist!)

Unless you’re a really big fan of the beach, Summertime is all about one thing: blockbuster movies!

There is a metric ton’s worth of good movies either out already or coming […]
