Following the events of Avengers: Endgame, Spider-Man (Tom Holland) must step up to take on new threats in a world that has changed forever (IMDB).

Jon Watts is back directing this latest Spider-man installment and I for one am glad because this film is not only as good as Spider-man: Homecoming but I think it is better. This film is an absolute fantastic ride from beginning to end. The writing, acting and special effects are, as expected, spectacular.

Review: TOY STORY 4

By Mark Saldana

Rating: 3.5 (Out of 4 Stars)

Even though Disney/Pixar could have ended a successful franchise with a trilogy, they opted to make it a quadrilogy, and the results aren’t actually bad. The latest installment in the Toy Story saga shows a tremendous amount of love for its characters and stories; though I feel it isn’t exactly the franchise’s strongest offering. Nevertheless, if one has much love for this movie series, Disney/Pixar and its multiple talents involved have guaranteed that this latest chapter is not at all a waste of time.

Review: CHILD’S PLAY (2019)

By Mark Saldana

Rating: 3 (Out of 4 Stars)

At this point in my work in film criticism, I have to just shug and go with the flow when I hear about a new remake. I mean; honestly, what can I do? When Disney, the world’s biggest studio is producing mostly remakes and others are following suit, all I can do is hope for the best and prepare for the worst. With the case of the Child’s Play/Chucky franchise, I honestly don’t have any strong feelings about it all. I have always enjoyed the original film and a handful of its subsequent installments, but never felt any strong attachments with any of them. That said; I went into this new vision of Child’s Play with my usual positive attitude and no metaphorical chips on my shoulder. As it turns out, I actually enjoyed the new movie and accepted it for what it is–a subversive and delicious dish of dark humor/horror with a commentary on our obsession with cool technology.
