Venom (2018)

Although the movie, for one reason or another, leaves an overall good impression, there is a number of problems with it. Not the most obvious one is that it follows a comic-book film adaptation canon pretty accurately – which is not a bad thing in itself – but that is exactly why Venom is so … More Venom (2018)

Rampage (2018)

It’s a good action film that had good chances of becoming a great one, but to a number of reasons didn’t. First of all – Dwayne Johnson, the lead actor. When you go to a movie with Johnson, you expect to see the Rock side of him – at least for a few minutes of … More Rampage (2018)

First … More Why “Legends of Tomorrow” is important for Arrowverse

Spectre (2015)

As just a movie, it is a masterpiece. As part of James Bond’s series, it kind of sucks. First of all, I’d like to say a word about the movie’s music.
