Warning: Spoilers Ahead For those of you who have already seen The Nun, I'm sorry. For everyone else, this article should help you with your decision. Plot - Possessed Romanian Nun As a prequel to The Conjuring, The Nun opens with the final scene from the original movie, with a painting of a demonic looking nun. Then, the viewer is taken back to the 1950s. In...
The dynamic partnership of director Edgar Wright and actors Simon Pegg and Nick Frost has kept audiences laughing ever since the release of 2002's horror-comedy Shaun of the Dead. Their unique brand of genre satire and sharply written jokes was followed up with 2007's buddy-cop satire Hot Fuzz. This year, they have done it again with The World's End. In...
Pacific Rim Uprising, the second installment in the franchise, opened this weekend to moderate success. It ended Black Panter's six-week reign of the weekend box office, bringing in $28 million domestically opposed to Black Panther's $17 million. I saw Pacific Rim Uprising since I enjoyed the original and it was a chance to hang out with my friends on a Friday night. I...

You realize that you can't watch The Office or Parks and Rec for the tenth time, so you look to find...
WATCH THE TRAILER BEFORE READING! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zIP_gtjDtfE] Normally I don't say this with films, but believe the hype. Because Whiplash is not only an amazing film, but it's also one of the greatest films to come out of this year. Already heralded as one of the best films of the year and winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance...
Warning: Very minor spoilers of: Captain America: The winter Soldier, Captain America: The First Avenger, and The Avengers. It’s hardly anything but if you want to watch the movies 100% uninformed then beware. When I think about it, Marvel Studios is producing something more like a giant TV series than a bunch of movies. Starting with the first Iron Man,...
