RAPID REVIEW- “Thor: Love and Thunder” Suffers from Its Own Director
Thor: Love and Thunder finds the Norse god at a major crossroads in his life. Without a battle to fight or love to follow, Thor (Chris Hemsworth) is listless and lost. His ex-girlfriend, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman) is inexplicably drawn to New Asgard during her own personal struggle and together they must battle a new threat who plans to murder all of the Gods.
Thor: Love and Thunder has two main issues working against it.Continue reading →
Free Screenings of “Lightyear” in Dallas, Austin & San Antonio
I teared up the first time I saw the trailer for Lightyear. I’m not entirely sure why, though it might have been a Pavlovian response to ANYTHING related to Toy Story. There’s something about Chris Evans in the role of our favorite Space Ranger that also takes Lightyear to another level. I’m so excited to give away free passes to this film, and hopefully enough to take your whole family (or close to it).Continue reading →

MOVIE REVIEW: Life’s too Hard to NOT See “Thor: Ragnarok”
I’ll talk about Thor: Ragnarok in a moment but first I’d like to address the big picture…
LIFE is hard.
If you need proof, just look around you. Everyone I know is going through something awful right now. I have friends who are fighting cancer, and friends who are caring for parents who are fighting cancer. I have friends who have lost their jobs, and friends who are trapped in jobs that they HATE. I have friends who worry desperately for their children, and who can’t turn the TV on at night because the bad news they see freaks them out even more.
In other words, everything seems to suck right now, for just about everyone.
Don’t we all deserve something GOOD? Don’t we deserve a moment to escape and feel light, or powerful, or maybe to just laugh our asses off?
Now, I’m ready to talk about Thor: Ragnarok. Continue reading →
