Galaxy Quest

Star Trek is among my favorite franchises…at least when it’s good.  I’ve watched through Deep Space Nine (1993-1999) sans a handful of episodes; most of The Next Generation (1987-1994); and seen all of the movies, including J.J. 663 more words

Interstellar

Writer/director Christopher Nolan is certainly the boldest modern filmmaker in Hollywood, adding realism and complexity to comic book movies with the Dark Knight trilogy (2005-2012) and literally getting inside of our heads with Inception (2010).   504 more words

Big Hero 6

Marvel is such a popular brand that even Disney is capitalizing on it.  Beyond the fact that Disney owns the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Big Hero 6 (2014) is Disney’s first animated movie that’s loosely based on an obscure Marvel comic.   480 more words

X-Men: Days of Future Past

The X-Men movies (2000-2014) have been a mixed bag for me.  Out of the seven that have been released before X-Men: Days of Future Past (2014), I think that X-Men 2: X-Men United (2003) and The Wolverine (2013) are really good, though I haven’t seen the latter since it was in theaters. 1,015 more words

Guardians of the Galaxy

Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) takes a break from the Marvel heroes that we’re used to, such as Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor.  It introduces us to an entirely new branch of the Marvel Cinematic Universe that’s less superhero and more science-fiction space opera.   526 more words

Transformers: Age of Extinction

I used to love the Transformers franchise.  Michael Bay’s Transformers (2007) sucked me in and for the past few years I’ve bought hundreds of action figures and used many of them in stop-motion movies; watched many Transformers television series; and enjoyed the live-action films over and over again. 876 more words

The Maze Runner

Movies based on young adult novels are giving comic book movies their match in terms of quantity, with titles ranging from the Twilight Saga (2008-2012), to The Hunger Games series (2012-2015), Divergent (2014), The Fault in Our Stars (2014), If I Stay (2014), to The Giver (2014). 564 more words
