Review: Ant-Man and the Wasp

Small fry.

by Benjamín Harguindey

It’s hard to chase a movie like Avengers: Infinity War (2018) with something like Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018), if nothing else because the massive superhero crossover took a franchise ten years in the making and did something relatively bold and novel with it. Of course novelty is short-lived in the realm of comic book status quo, and the boldness feels like a bluff designed to hype up the next movie.

Review: Avengers: Infinity War

Disney’s Marvel’s fake-out extravaganza

by Benjamín Harguindey

What happens to Star Wars now?

I have a bad feeling about this.

by Benjamín Harguindey

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has only been out for a few days and as expected is performing strongly at the box office, but the dust is already clearing and from a critical standpoint it seems to have attracted less favorable reviews than preceding entry Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens (2015), even if by all accounts it hews closer to the spirit of the original movies. Where does Disney take it from here?
