The 91st Academy Awards are going live February 24th. This year’s ceremony have gone through a lot, from problems with the host, changes to the categories, and an overall sense of “who cares”. Whatever it may be, it’s the Superbowl of movie awards, and it’s fun to watch if not for the aesthetics of the red carpet, but for the theatrics of it all.
Auteur David Harris
David Harris has lived in Montreal his whole life. He thoroughly enjoys discussing most subjects including the arts, technology, and good food. He shows a great appreciation for good stories and dialogue, which suits his passions perfectly: television, movies, and graphic novels. But, deep down, he has to admit that his biggest love will always be with the movies and movie going experience.
There are some characters out there who are perfect candidates for their own series. They’re developed enough to have more than one layer, and have potential for new threats and ways to grow. Iron Man, Daredevil, and potentially Captain Marvel are great examples. There are others who work better as a supporting character and have difficulty making it on their own. It’s the reason the Hulk won’t have a solo move anytime soon. The Punisher falls in this category, as the first part of his second season can show.
It’s a story as old as the Arthurian legend. A young plucky kid discovers that there’s more to this world than they originally expected. Adventure and duty are thrust upon them, and they make the selfless choice to claim victory with a little help from their friends. The Kid Who Would Be King is director and writer Joe Cornish’s attempt at tackling this genre.
If you’ve seen Deadpool 2, then you will have seen Once Upon a Deadpool. If you haven’t and are curious, read a review of the previous movie here. In essence, it’s the same story. Some scenes are edited to cater the PG-13 audience, which includes cleaner violence, and nicer language.
The Cohen Brothers are at it again. The Academy Award-winning directors and writers once more don the Stetson and spurs, as they saddle onto another cowboy feature with The Ballad of Buster Scruggs.
In a world of lazy remakes and cash grabbing sequels, it’s always refreshing to see the next notch in a franchise end up being unique and enjoyable. And we can gladly say that The Predator is one of those movies.
