Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

June 18, 2017

(Honestly, just call it Pirates 5…) About 10 years ago, George Lucas made a statement that soon the Hollywood blockbuster would be dead.  It appears that the opposite has come true instead.  Blockbusters are sinking their claws into us, so much so that I walked out of this fifth film in a massively overblown series […]

10. Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan (1982) Star Trek is one of the most legendary television shows of all time, so there were a lot of expectations when the franchise decided to take its adventures to the big screen.

Aliens?? Seriously?? Yeah, I really didn’t know what to think about this movie when i got out of it, but it didn’t take me long to conclude that I didn’t like it. There were some parts where it felt like an Indiana Jones film, and others where it didn’t, but i can tell you that […]
