Tanner Reviews Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

GotG_Vol2_posterI FINALLY got back to the movie theater. While I plan to go to see Alien: Covenant this week since I am a glutton for punishment and watching everything I love die, I did get a chance to see Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, so that makes me happy. What more can really be said about Guardians of the Galaxy at this point? It is easily the best franchise in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and I will challenge anyone that says otherwise. The story is great, the chemistry is there, and overall it is just an amazing movie. Vol 2 does have a few problems with it on a minuscule level. More importantly the comedy and competing with the first movie which was more than likely the best in the franchise. But overall, it was a fun experience.

Tanner Reviews Furious 7

Furious_7_poster… You know… I wrote a review a couple of years back about how the Saint’s Row franchise just wasn’t my thing and it never would be my thing.

The movies have gained traction over the years, but as a kid when they first came out, I always just saw it as testosterone car fueled wank material where people who had a thing for big, fast, and loud cars could beat off to races and action sequences. Then, over time, the movies evolved into something bat shit insane and action packed… But I still can’t force myself to like them. I admit that Furious 7 may be a good movie and I see so many examples of the excellent film making that went into it, but I still have to chalk this up to something that just isn’t for me.

Tanner Reviews Pitch Black

Pitch_Black_posterAs a rule of thumb I tend to stay away from the SyFy channel. In my younger adolescents it was one of my most watched channels as I did have a brief phase (as most people do) with the whole CGI exploitation ‘creature feature’ that the channel is well-known for spewing out over the years. I think everyone goes through that Saturday afternoon creature feature at some point. The only caveat is that some people don’t grow out of the habit. But if that is what you are into who am I to judge?… Oh yeah that is all that I do. How silly of me. Continue reading “Tanner Reviews Pitch Black”
