The Gang’s All Here

Reviewed by Mason Manuel

Marvel’s biggest surprise hit team is back to once again save us from conventional Marvel tropes. Space Avengers they may be, but the heart and bond between these fantastic characters are just as strong as their first go round and show no signs of slowing. Though director James Gunn fails to capture lightening in a bottle twice, that doesn’t stop the film from being any less fun than its predecessor.

The Fate of the Furious Review

Take a Shot Every Time They Say “Family”

By Mason Manuel

When a film franchise has eight films on its belt with still more to come, to get an even basically decent entry could be considered a modern miracle. Yet after a rocky middle, the Fast and Furious films have done considerably well after the mini renaissance it went through with Fast Five. Now with The Fate of the Furious (or F8: cue eye roll) the momentum doesn’t slow, but doesn’t really pick up either. In short you get exactly what you expect from a franchise that’s main star is Vin Diesel. But that’s not all bad. Continue reading The Fate of the Furious Review

The Discovery Review

Cutting the cord has never been more appealing than the age we live in now. Services like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime have shown themselves more than worthy of creating original films and series. Netflix in particular has been absolutely killing it as of late with so much new original quality content it’s a bit difficult to keep up. However, that is no excuse to not see The Discovery. A film focusing on the poignant question of “what is the meaning of life, if the afterlife is real?” stays in your mind long after the credits roll. Though the story and pacing do fight around some issues, the feelings and thoughts raised from the ideas of the film have remarkable effect.  Continue reading The Discovery Review

Mass Effect is a Pioneer in Equality

The Mass Effect saga is one of the best game series in history. Expertly mixing storytelling as well as captivating gameplay, the games are pioneers in the industry. However, that’s not what makes them truly stand out in my opinion. Though the wide breadth of story is admirable, the sheer amount of freedom you are given is more so. Not just in physical exploration, but in social and personal form as well, Mass Effect gives you the opportunity to explore yourself in a way that real life may not necessarily allow or at least approve of. And that’s what makes it great. Continue reading Mass Effect is a Pioneer in Equality

The Great Wall’s Casting is not Racist or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Start a Flame War

Image result for the great wall film

There is a lot to be said for the case that Hollywood is, at least partially, unfair to the depiction of certain races. Whether it be horrendously stereotyping them or not giving particular races roles at all, history is rife with evidence that the film industry has been slow on being more diverse. When the trailer for The Great Wall was released I was personally unenthused. The CGI looked crummy and Matt Damon’s inclusion had no particular significance for me. I forgot about it and moved on with my day. But suddenly the internet was a flame, as it is prone to do, as others saw this trailer and were enraged that Matt Damon’s white male character was a seeming savior for an overwhelmed, Chinese majority army.  Though on the surface I can see where this interpretation would come from, I can’t agree that his character is by any means an insult to Asian races or acting as a white savior to any characters in this film. Why you ask? Because unlike most people I forced myself to watch the damn film. Continue reading The Great Wall’s Casting is not Racist or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Start a Flame War
