    A Simple Favor – DeaconsDen Reaction

    This one, took me by surprise. I expected to enjoy A Simple Favor because it seemed like the type of mystery-thriller I’m accustomed to enjoying, but I legitimately loved this and it is the second time a film with Blake Lively has become one of my favorites of the year (the first being The Shallows).…

    Teen Titans Go! To The Movies – DeaconsDen Reaction

    Robin, Raven, Starfire, Cyborg and Beast Boy have hit the big screen together in this animated film based on the series Teen Titans Go! How did this quintet fare in their first movie adventure?

  • Solo: A Star Wars Story – DeaconsDen Review

    Solo: A Star Wars Story – DeaconsDen Review

    The second Star Wars Story focuses on that lovable smuggler, the scruffy looking nerf herder himself, Han Solo. Solo is directed by industry veteran Ron Howard and believe it or not, is also a fun space Western/heist film that I think can also be a good entry point for people who might not consider themselves…

    A Quiet Place – DeaconsDen Review

    A Quiet Place is so quiet, I was afraid to munch on my snacks during my viewing. So yes, its trailers were certainly effective. Emily Blunt and John Krasinski (who also co-wrote and directed) are a married couple with children who inhabit a world that is now overrun with creatures who are extra sensitive to…

    Black Panther – DeaconsDen Reaction

    The first time we meet T’Challa, it’s during the events of Captain America: Civil War. Now we are given our first cinematic experience of Wakanda and all its lore, culture and citizenship. If you’ve been reading my reviews (and I appreciate it), you’ve become accustomed to my review format. This time however, I want to…

  • Proud Mary – DeaconsDen Review

    Proud Mary – DeaconsDen Review

    Taraji P. Henson is Mary. She’s an assassin for a crime family who’s orphaned as a result of her actions in this action crime thriller. I was very interested in seeing Proud Mary. It appeared to be an action thriller with a stylish flourish and I typically love movies like that. It looked similar to…

    The Cloverfield Paradox – DeaconsDen Review

    Imagine the surprise that went through the world of film when it was announced during Super Bowl LII that the third installment of the Cloverfield franchise would make its debut on Netflix after the game. Many people who weren’t interested in the game wanted it to be over so they could watch it. I was…
