‘Detective Pikachu’ Is A Modern ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’ – ScreenHub Entertainment

Let’s get this out of the way right now. Detective Pikachu has no right to be as good as it is. After years of missteps attempting to make a video game based movie, a major Hollywood studio has finally succeeded, creating a movie that is entertaining, memorable, and an all around enjoyable experience for fans. For me, there was also a sense of familiarity in … Continue reading ‘Detective Pikachu’ Is A Modern ‘Who Framed Roger Rabbit’ – ScreenHub Entertainment

‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile’ Is A Film About Denial – ScreenHub Entertainment

Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile is not biopic on real life serial killer Ted Bundy. Rather than simply chronicle his crime spree in detail, the film takes a more unusual approach and shows it from the perspective of a long time girlfriend, Elizabeth Kloepfer. It does so to mixed results. The film is not without merit however, containing several moments of subtle brilliance before … Continue reading ‘Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil And Vile’ Is A Film About Denial – ScreenHub Entertainment

A Face-Lift Won’t Save ‘Sonic The Hedgehog’ – ScreenHub Entertainment

It’s perhaps only once in a decade that a film comes along so outrageously bad, it stops being a movie and becomes a punchline. All early indicators point to Sonic The Hedgehog as the next film to join the ranks of films like Battlefield Earth. Since the debut of its trailer last week, reactions have been so outrageously negative that Paramount, in an effort to save … Continue reading A Face-Lift Won’t Save ‘Sonic The Hedgehog’ – ScreenHub Entertainment

Love Is A Battlefield: Remembering ‘The Terminator’ – ScreenHub Entertainment

As a child of the 90s, few films resonated with the culture like Terminator 2 : Judgement Day. On every front from its reviews to its box office, it seemed to have dwarfed its predecessor as the Schwarzenegger movie to end them all. And though I still have boundless love for Cameron’s innovative sequel, as I grow older, more and more I find myself going … Continue reading Love Is A Battlefield: Remembering ‘The Terminator’ – ScreenHub Entertainment

Remember the Titans: A History of Godzilla’s ‘King of the Monsters’ Co-Stars – ScreenHub Entertainment

Godzilla has quite an ensemble behind him in this year’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters. To those not familiar with the series, there’s still a lot to be excited about with this upcoming film. As a longtime fan, I can’t help but feel a surge of nostalgia seeing all the familiar faces these last few weeks. GODZILLA’S MANY HOUSES King Ghidorah, Mothra and Rodan have … Continue reading Remember the Titans: A History of Godzilla’s ‘King of the Monsters’ Co-Stars – ScreenHub Entertainment

Why ‘First Blood’ Stands Apart From Its Sequels – ScreenHub Entertainment

As a kid, it seemed I couldn’t pop in any movie without hearing a reference to Rambo. True Lies, UHF, Spaceballs, Hot Shots: Part Deux and others painted a picture of an unstoppable titan who did away with his enemies by the truck load. To me, this is one of the most infuriating misconceptions of popular culture, as the original First Blood is hardly what one would … Continue reading Why ‘First Blood’ Stands Apart From Its Sequels – ScreenHub Entertainment

Marvel’s Oversaturation Problem – ScreenHub Entertainment

When I saw Captain Marvel, I was thrilled. I was entertained, engrossed, and had a very satisfying movie going experience. Still, while sitting back, I couldn’t help but shake the feeling I’d done this before. The characters seemed familiar, the action scenes felt worn, and the plot felt like a road I’d traveled many times already. This was a movie I’d already seen. Now many of … Continue reading Marvel’s Oversaturation Problem – ScreenHub Entertainment

Spielberg’s Misguided War – ScreenHub Entertainment

Steven Spielberg has put himself at the center of quite the controversy. Since the Oscar Nomination of the Netflix original movie Roma, the veteran has begun a campaign to make sure that streamed movies are never again allowed to qualify for the Academy Awards. Many have viewed this this as a rather villainous stance from Mr. Spielberg, and while I disagree with his stance on … Continue reading Spielberg’s Misguided War – ScreenHub Entertainment

Michael Jackson, Celebrity Worship, and ‘Death of the Author’ – ScreenHub Entertainment

America loves its celebrities, so when one betrays their image, it can prove a bitter pill to swallow. The legacy of pop titan Michael Jackson has been tarnished for some time due to many allegations of child sexual abuse, but for a long time, these like many other scandals, were forgotten. That has all changed since Leaving Neverland. Now, not only are Jackson’s apparent victims … Continue reading Michael Jackson, Celebrity Worship, and ‘Death of the Author’ – ScreenHub Entertainment

Bloody Noir: ‘Predator 2’ Revisited – ScreenHub Entertainment

There are few mysteries more compelling to me than the hatred for Predator 2. Sure, this first sequel to the 1987 classic isn’t without its faults. Its more colorful and extravagant style could be off-putting to fans of the more quiet dread the original builds up. However, I’ve always enjoyed this film, and given some of the recent developments in the series, perhaps now is … Continue reading Bloody Noir: ‘Predator 2’ Revisited – ScreenHub Entertainment
