The Girl We Left Behind: David Fincher’s Incomplete Dragon Tattoo Trilogy

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo deserved better. David Fincher’s adaptation of the popular Swedish novel is his most underrated movie yet; although it was critically praised and did moderately well at the box office—oh yeah, and got Rooney Mara a Best Actress nomination—it still wasn’t enough to continue the trilogy. Disappointed is an understatement.…

Deadpool 2- Review

Deadpool 2, directed by David Leitch, takes all the best parts of the original and balances it with terrific characters, a solid plot, brilliant action, and tons of humor. I will be the first to admit 2016’s Deadpool wasn’t my favorite film. While the action scenes were great, and the acting was on point, some of the lackluster jokes,…

Batman v Superman: When Critics Don’t Like Change

Not because of their tragic…

An examination of Peter Jackson’s interpretation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-Earth.

Born and raised in northern Sweden, the environment surrounding me was often that of hills and forests. I would either spend my days feeding various pheasants by the river or running around forests with woodland creatures and pretending to fight off monsters with my bow and arrow. This lifestyle only became more prominent the day…
