Jascha Wilson Reviews – Spiderman: Homecoming

Well hello there Flicker Fans….what better way to swing back into writing you wonderful people again, than having our own friendly neighborhood Spiderman swinging back into theaters this past weekend.

Don’t worry, you won’t have to endure that many puns in the rest of this review.

So let’s chat about Spiderman: Homecoming shall we? First, I would like to offer a homage to the past Spidermen and somewhat of a tribute, or “toast” if you would. Actually, I think I’d like to write you guys a direct letter. Yes, I’m talking to you Tobey Mcguire and Andrew Garfield.

Jascha Wilson Reviews: Bad Santa 2

"BS2-05271_R

Flicker Fans! Well, it’s been quite some time since I’ve hollered at ya! Been awhile since we’ve wrapped a little about movies. Been a minute since I’ve essentially lectured my opinion about a film. Why? Who knows? Life happens, but I’m back. Back to try and finish the year strong with a few reviews coming your way. A quick fix on what I thought was going to be a pretty big hit, but didn’t quite deliver the presents that I thought it was going to. I’m talking about Bad Santa 2 (see what I did there?). Let’s jump in shall we?

Review: The Infiltrator

infiltratorHey Flicker Fans, you know what I like most about movies sometimes? It’s not the special effects, or the fact that most of my childhood comic stories are now being told on the big screen. It’s some of the “true stories” that Hollywood likes to tell for our enjoyment. It’s the bend between what really happened, and what they’ve dug up to make it “movie worthy.” I like the idea of not really being able to tell which is which sometimes, but what I love most about these movies are the photos of the characters our leads are portraying shown at the end. I love the wrap ups. I love the part of the story when they say, “This person is still doing undercover work and did blah, blah, for the next 30 years.” I don’t know why, I just love that shit.

Which brings me to this movie The Infiltrator. Directed by Brad Furman (The Lincoln Lawyer, Runner Runner), this movie is the true story of Robert Mazur trying to find out the money laundering plans involving Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar—sounds cool right? I mean, honestly, if you like drug cartel movies and stories about the glory days of cocaine (that’s a really weird way to describe it, I realize that, but just bear with me alright), but the days of cocaine where the problem was very real in America and Pablo Escobar was the most powerful drug supplier out of Columbia. How big a deal was this guy? He was such a big deal, they’re still making movies and shows about this guy (see Blow (2001), Escobar: Paradise Lost (2014), Narcos (2015)). Read more

Review: Ghostbusters

GhostbustersPOSTER“Who you gonna call?”

I know who I’m gonna call and it’s the new Ghostbusters. That’s right, Flicker Fans, here we are and this is the official review of the new (not necessarily improved) Ghostbusters. This is in direct response to my “predictive” review of the new franchise, and you know what Flicker Fans? It wasn’t that bad. I know, I know…I think we were all expecting an atrocious debacle that literally assaulted our senses in every sense of the word…..well, let me tell you….it wasn’t that bad and it was only partially offensive.

Now when I say “offensive”, I mean it in the sense of completely offending our past with new effects, characters and a story that is so convoluted it borders on the line of questioning ones film going experience and taste in movies. Well guess what Flicker Fans, Ghostbusters did NOT make me question my movie going experience. It actually made me smile. Read more

Review: The Legend Of Tarzan

The Legend of Tarzan posterTarzan: The best movie you didn’t watch this weekend.

Flicker Fans…..bear with me. I know this is going to be a stretch for you. I know that you’re not really going to want to hear what I have to say, but just bear with me ok? Just sit back and have an open mind about what I’m about to lay down for you. I’m about to say something that you may not really want to hear, and that’s ok. It’s going to be ok. It’s just my opinion after all, and it’s not gospel….but THE LEGEND OF TARZAN is the best movie that you haven’t watched yet, and I’m about to tell you why.

Review: Independence Day: Resurgence

Independence Day: ResurgenceIndependence Day: Resurgence

(sigh)…..Hello there Flicker Fans….I know, I know…I feel like I’m already starting this beloved review with a little malice and sadness….I’m starting it off with a “sigh” for God’s sake. I’m starting it off with a little malice….a tone of depression…..maybe even contempt. But hey, it’s starting off, and I’ll do my best to be a little optimistic when it comes to this review and talk about the “good, the bad, and yes….the ugly”…..Let’s talk about “Independence Day: Resurgence”.
