Growing up my often trips to the rental store were more about treasure hunting than just a hobby. In 1997 I was lucky enough to get an scholarship to study Arts, Cinema, and took a long course on American Screenplay (which messed up my movie watching since I can predict endings much easier now). Obsessed with animation of all kinds. Married to an amazing tech geek. Love food (probably too much). Visit her site - http://www.shemoviegeek.com

Sorry Baby Groot fans, but this is Peter Quill’s film. Not Star-Lord, just Peter. Because what James Gunn did with this sequel was to convert the GOTG films into a character arc for Chris Pratt’s beloved gunman. And the results are out of this world, in more than one way.

1-The Film Doesn’t Make a Big Deal About Having an All Female Lead Cast Just like with The Heat or Spy, we have the sense that director Paul Fig assembled a great cast of comedians he likes to work with, who just happened to be women. There are no allusions

Director Jon Favreau certainly mastered the beast-size challenge of translating a beloved book and animated film into a new media, even with a roar. His version of The Jungle Book feels absolutely inspired, original and justified, an achievement not to be taken lightly in our current remake-prequel-sequel era. Like with

The new trailer for Doctor Strange looks fantastic. My favorite thing about it (besides Benedict Cumberbatch’s take on the character) is its tone: just like with every other film from the franchise it looks like it belongs with the rest of them while still being its own thing, this time

Crafting an effective niche film is harder than it seems, and Krampus arrived this season as an unexpected (but welcomed) gift. Even if the horror-comedy genre isn’t new, the concoction of elements director Michael Dougherty was able to pull off is so well executed the result is refreshing and oh-so-much
