Movie Review: Terminator Genisys

terminator-genisys-banner

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Arnold Schwarzenegger is back once again as the T-800 in a new Terminator film uttering a new catchphrase, "I'm old, but not obsolete." As much as I want to believe that, I think Hollywood should pause and ask whether that's true for the franchise. Terminator … [Read more...]

Movie Review: Ted 2

ted-2_nws4

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Just like the original Ted, your mileage on how much you enjoy Ted 2 may vary. If you loved the original film, odds are you'll love Ted 2 about as much, but the opposite is also true: If you hated the first film, then odds are you won't like this one either. I … [Read more...]

Movie Review: Inside Out

inside out image

Our review of Inside Out. By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) I'm not prone to crying or even tearing up. I'm not a manly-man by any stretch of the imagination who spends his off hours as a lumberjack taking down trees (I am Canadian after all), it just takes a lot to make me well up. Unless … [Read more...]

Streaming Review: Sense8

sense8

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) I've been saying for a long time that the Wachowskis should be making television because of their love for world building and complex ideas, and have proved my point with their new series Sense8. The premise of the series revolves around eight characters from … [Read more...]

Jurassic World 3D Review

Mosasaur great white

By Heath McKnight (doddleNEWS) Just to get it out of the way: This isn’t a review of Jurassic World; make sure you read Danny F. Santos’ review. I’m writing a review of the 3D conversion of the film, which was performed by the same company who did the excellent 3D conversion of Jurassic … [Read more...]

Movie Review: Jurassic World

Jurassic World Indominus Rex

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Going into Jurassic World, you only need to know one thing, it's not as good as the original. But no sequel to Jurassic Park could ever be as good, because it was such a cinematic revelation at the time that it made you believe that dinosaurs could be real, so … [Read more...]

Movie Review: Me and Earl and the Dying Girl

DSC_3817.JPG

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl won two prestigious awards at this year's Sundance Film Festival (Grand Jury and Audience Awards). But does the movie genuinely live up to the Festival's accolades? By Kimberly Gadette (doddleNEWS) Far from the sappy, oft-used formula of budding teen love … [Read more...]

Book vs. Movie: Which One Wins? Part 2: The Book

The Great Gatsby

By Kimberly Gadette (doddleNEWS) In Part 2 of Book Vs. Movie, we're flipping to the other side of the page, in which the book is far better than its ensuing film adaptation. The Cat in the Hat (the book, published 1957, written by Theodor Seuss Geisel): The Dr. Seuss children's classic that … [Read more...]

Movie Review: San Andreas

San Andreas-Movie

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) San Andreas gives viewers exactly what they expect from a disaster film, and not an ounce more. The film is a paint-by-the-numbers disaster flick filled with two dimensional characters, and it's what you would expect from this type of film. What character … [Read more...]

Movie Review: Tomorrowland

Tomorrowland_poster

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Tomorrowland has been one of those films that has been following JJ Abrams' mystery box theory, where writer/director Brad Bird and co-writer Damon Lindelof (of Lost fame, and no stranger to teasing the audience) have kept the story largely under wraps for most … [Read more...]

Movie Review: Avengers: Age Of Ultron

Avengers: Age Of Ultron

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) I'm going to have to be the one to tell you this, but you're going to need to watch Avengers: Age Of Ultron -- not just because it's that good (it is), but it's also incredibly dense. That makes a certain amount of sense since they've added three new superheroes … [Read more...]

Book vs. Movie: Which One Wins? Part 1: The Movie

Tilda Swinton

By Kimberly Gadette (doddleNEWS) In looking at film adaptations of literary source material, the prevailing criticism is, "The movie was OK, but the book was so much better!" But in some cases -- as rare as a female director winning the Oscar -- the movie trumps the book. Following are five … [Read more...]

The Complete Marvel Cinematic Universe Review — Part 4

Captain America: The Winter Soldier

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) We're entering the final stretch of Phase: Two of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, with Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy. Both of these films I thought were absolutely brilliant, but for entirely different reasons. (Read my reviews … [Read more...]

The Complete Marvel Cinematic Universe Review — Part 3

Thor Iron Man

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) As of my last article, Phase: One of the Marvel Cinematic Universe came to a close with the Avengers (read part one here). One of the big realizations of watching these films back-to-back, is that they really did come from a far more humble beginning than I … [Read more...]

The Complete Marvel Cinematic Universe Review — Part 2

Avengers

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) In preparation of Avengers: Age of Ultron, due in theaters this Friday (already open internationally, and breaking box office records), I've started rewatching all ten films that make up the Marvel Cinematic Universe so far. Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, and Iron … [Read more...]

The Complete Marvel Cinematic Universe Review — Part 1

Iron Man

By Danny F. Santos (doddleNEWS) Marvel Studios started out as a risky venture in superhero films, but has turned into one of the most successful franchises of all time. It's hard to imagine that back in May 2008, when Iron Man first came out, that this may have blown up in their faces. In … [Read more...]
