Video: You Know What's A Good Movie? The Count of Monte Cristo

The Count of Monte Cristo is one of my favorite films.  Based on the novel by Alexander Dumas, it tells the story of a man wrongfully imprisoned, and how he seeks revenge on those who've wronged him.  A fascinating story, with incredible performances by the likes of Jim Caviezel and Guy Pearce.  There's so much to tell you about, click the video below to find out more, and just how the movie relates to Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone.

What to make of the news, that an acting legend is retiring?  Well, savor the work he's put out.  Daniel Day-Lewis announced, again, that he is retiring from acting.  Whether he is to be believed is a whole another conversation.  But for now, we should reflect on his body of work and appreciate what he did for cinema.

I loved the first Daddy's Home film. And this week we got to see the first trailer for the sequel.  Check out my trailer reaction to the trailer, and some thoughts on the original.  I'm not saying the first film is perfect, but it's just the right amount of funny to pop it in after a long day at work.  Do you agree?

Wonder Woman Video Review; A Film Worthy of its Praise

Finally!  Finally, one of the greatest superhero characters in comics, is the star of her own movie.  Gal Gadot and Chris Pine star in Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman.

Check out my video review of the film.  Spoiler alert... I really really enjoyed the film.

I also want to add that this movie is having a cultural impact in the best way.  Little girls need a hero like Wonder Woman, amid all the male superheros they look up to.  When I went to see Wonder Woman, besides loving the movie... I loved seeing little kids enjoying it. I had a little boy a few seats down from me who was just as excited seeing Wonder Woman, as he would have been seeing Batman. And a little girl sitting right behind me told her dad, "I want to be like her".

Awesome.  Just awesome.
