Avatar: The Way Of Water (2022) Review – visually even more glorious than the first film but not much improvement narratively

My first experience with the first AVATAR movie started with a free 15-minute sneak peek at the Rosedale IMAX on AVATAR DAY 13 years ago., four months before the movie actually opens on December 2009. It was the first time I saw a movie in 3D and I was in awe of the world of …

Weekend Viewing Roundup: Ghostbusters (1984) & Superman Returns (2006) rewatch + The Adventurer: Curse Of The Midas Box (2013)

Well this weekend's viewing turns out to be pretty eclectic. Given that I saw the screening of the new Ghostbuster movie (review up later this week), I was inspired to re-watch the original. I honestly can't remember when I saw that one, probably when I was a teen years ago, so my memory of it is hazy. …

LOVE a four-day work week, don't you? Well for us Americans, we enjoy an extra weekend day as Monday was Memorial Day. The weather was glorious on Monday so my friends and I spent most of the day outside picnicking at a small park. I did do some blogging over the weekend as I got …

THIS JUST IN: ‘The Cold Light of Day’ first trailer

As you know by now, our new Man of Steel Henry Cavill has been on my radar for a few years now. So a new movie starring him is ALWAYS a good thing. Throw in Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver into this fast-paced thriller and I'm definitely game! A young American (Cavill) uncovers a conspiracy …
