Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

I’m sure everyone loves these movies. I’m sure everyone expects me to jump in her and talk about how amazing this movie was. “Oh everyone loves the Guardians of the Galaxy movies. He’s just going to pine over how much he loved it.” Well guess what… You’re not wrong! However, everything I have to say will be objective per the norm (with a few exceptions her...[Read More]

Beauty and the Beast

I wasn’t really looking forward to “Beauty and the Beast” very much, but I was definitely interested. A classic from my childhood had been reimagined in live action, of course I had to see it. There were a few weird things involved, like the lack of adorability in the characters, now that they looked real. I was worried that children would not really be able to watch this movie, ...[Read More]

Iron Fist: Season 1 Review

The Immortal Iron Fist. He was a Marvel Comics hit when he first appeared in Marvel Premiere #15 in 1974 to audiences who were obsessed with Kung-Fu and Eastern culture. One year prior, Marvel had a hit on their hands with Shang-Chi, Master of Kung Fu, riding the success of the TV show “Kung Fu.” The big difference that caught a lot of renewed interest in the Kung Fu comics genre was t...[Read More]

Logan Review

So I got a chance to attend a special screening of Logan tonight and there’s so much I want to say about this movie. Since I was one of the first to see it, I’m going to try to keep this review as spoiler free as possible. Fast forward to the next picture if you want to get straight to the goods and ignore all of this fine background work I’ve done. I have been a stern advocate o...[Read More]

Angry Birds Review

Back in 2009, a game came out for the iPhone that allowed you to shoot flying objects at structures with the sole purpose of murdering enemies and destroying property. That game was called Crush the Castle, and no one knew or cared about it at all. Later that year, however, innovative people took the mechanics of Castle and changed it to where cartoon birds murdered egg-stealing pigs and called it...[Read More]

Captain America: Civil War

It’s hard to believe it, but we are now eight years into the movie experiment that is the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Starting with Iron Man, the comic book world has quickly taken over the multiplex with stories of superheroes, supervillains, and a bunch of regular people trying not to get killed in the crossfire. That last part is important since it is part of the operating question driving...[Read More]

The Jungle Book: Movie

I don’t know exactly what I was expecting when I walked into the screening of The Jungle Book last night. However, I can say with full confidence that whatever my expectations were, they were well exceeded. I hadn’t done too much research, because my time hasn’t been very abundant lately, so I didn’t know what was going to be going on. I was always a fan of Rudyard Kipling&...[Read More]

Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice

As one of the most anticipated movies of 2016, Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice was a polarizing movie before it was even released. With the weight of a thousand fanboys on its shoulders, the pressure was on the production team to make something that could compete with Marvel’s blockbuster Avengers series without seeming like a complete ripoff. To that end, Batman vs. Superman somewhat succeed...[Read More]

Deadpool Review

In the world of superhero movies, our intrepid champions of truth and justice usually have the following qualities: stoicism in the face of adversity, camaraderie amongst their own and the people they protect, and, above all, a defiance to kill their adversaries, unless absolutely necessary. Deadpool, on the other hand, conveys none of these qualities, and that’s a good thing. Since his first appe...[Read More]

Little Nemo: Adventures in Slumberland: Retro Review

I actually can’t believe it has taken me so long to do a review on this movie. Maybe it’s fitting that I’m using it as my return to head writer of Geekhaven Reviews, because it is one of my favorite movies of all time. So much so that my first novel “Escape from Undermind” was heavily influenced by it. Little Nemo is a one-hundred-eleven year old character, as Winsor ...[Read More]

Allie Strom and the Ring of Solomon by Justin Sloan

I am very glad to have come across this book. I’m upset that it took me so long to get to it, but I’m very grateful that I did, as Justin Sloan has crafted a very palatable first entry into his young adult, fantasy-fiction series. I’ve run into an abundance of YA novels lately (as they are a current trend) and very few actually stand out to me in terms of pacing and narrative str...[Read More]
