As a kid of 90’s origin, I’ve grown up with Japanese animation for quite some time. From the typical Toonami programming my childish brain lived on, to the cultural evolution it took when going into Miyazaki’s more mature titles, anime shaped me into one heck of a person. Though other titles were more influential to my personal story than others, part of that growth involved a title called Ghost in the Shell.

So… I’ve seen the 2017 version of Beauty and the Beast more than once. In fact, I’ve seen it a lot and now I’ve given myself enough time to let my inner fangirl voice take a deep breath. And with the film having opened with $178 million domestically at the box office, I think it is about time I gave it a proper review.

Happy Valentines Day from the DG Movie Department. Consider this terrible movie review a present from yours truly.
Ah yes, Fifty Shades. The franchise that started in 2015 is back on the big screen, here to take your hard-earned dollars and get things steamy for you and your sweetheart during Valentines Day. And if you remember from last time, Anastasia and Christian’s relationship didn’t exactly leave me wanting more. But somehow it made buckets of cash – leaving millions of horny housewives gleaming with joy. And as a result, Fifty Shades Darker (the sequel) got green-lit. Can it capture the same magic and spark that so many people felt the first time? While you ponder that, I’m going to grab a box in which to store my sanity.

You know what no ever really wanted? A young adult version of Wings of Desire. Some of you might know this story better as the 90’s junk remake that was City of Angels starring Nicolas Cage. But in case you don’t know the plot of either, they both tell a story of an angel who wishes to become human to be with a woman. Well, somehow screenwriter Allan Loeb and director Peter Chelsom decided it was time for this tale to return to the big screen—but this time just replacing angels with outerspace boys. Let me introduce you to The Space Between Us, starring Asa Butterfield and Brit Robertson, along with Gary Oldman and a slew of other “too-good-for-this-movie” talent.

As the resident trailer fan here, I feel it my duty to let you know that the new one for 2017’s Wonder Woman has hit the internet – and in my honest opinion, it’s pretty fantastic.
Many DC and Comic Book Movie fans have been very hesitant to get excited about Patty Jenkins’ cinematic adaptation of the famous female empowerment icon. But with the Comic Con trailer that debuted over the summer, and now this recent bit of advertising, Wonder Woman feels like it is going to be one of the better DC adaptations, and maybe will fix the issues of the past few “Snyder-verse” movies (looking at you, BvS).
