I most enjoyed that Hollywood’s nod to girl power in ‘Cars 3’ represented reality, not Lightning McQueen being woke. Well, as much as anthropomorphic cars live in reality.
So, does the film do away with Uncle Ben’s nugget of wisdom, ‘With great power comes great responsibility’? No, it’s just softer in this film.
At times, it can almost seem ‘War for the Planet of the Apes’ is anti-human. Yet it really shows what is best, and worst, about humankind, and therefore defines it.
This new ‘Spider-Man’ has none of the sweetness of the old comics or movies, none of the suffering—but all the gadgets and heroism audiences want.
Common Sense Media is one example of the progressive rush to save our children from sex. But they are shooting for the wrong goal.
‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ affords the opportunity to compare Peter’s pursuit to wield super-powers responsibly with other, older heroes’ endeavors to do the same.
Both feature protagonists trying to purge themselves from a murderous past. But Raskolnikov and Baby find answers—and freedom—in different measures.
We all love to watch films about troubled human beings who struggle with their sin, and ultimately find redemption. Because ultimately, they offer us hope.
By the simple fact of making and continuing to make so much money, ‘Star Wars’ became the film everyone wanted to make again.
With ‘Baby Driver,’ Edgar Wright infuses the heist genre with an originality that’s consistent with his previous work.
‘Stalag 17’ is a weird name and a weird movie. You’re in for a great surprise: an Oscar-winning all-American movie utterly without imitation.
Because of their strong, simple moral themes, critics refuse to respect the honest work and ingenuity put into the ‘Transformers’ series.
The actor’s comedic portrayal of Batman may not be considered the greatest or most moving. But he made all other Batmans possible.
Tom Cruise’s summer blockbuster offers horror, romance, and an all-American hero—but it also has a strong message regarding the death cult of individualism.
Too often, Hollywood gives us attractive villains and bad-boy heroes. Our narratives are morally muddy. Thankfully, ‘Wonder Woman’ avoids this pitfall.
The new ‘Wonder Woman’ film transcends our political moment and offers something—or rather, someone—both inspiring and thoughtful.
In recent years, Hollywood has often grappled with movies that should appeal to the activist female demographic but can deliver unpredictable results. Like ‘Wonder Woman.’
The movie is wrapped up in faux Greek mythology, true, but there’s no mistaking the Christology here.
I’m not against female-led superhero films. I’m against the implication that I owe ‘Wonder Woman’ a certain quota of praise merely because she is a she.
It’s unclear where the franchise can go from here. Judging by the so-so box office and ho-hum reviews, there are diminishing returns of humans being chased through dark interstellar halls.
