Superheroes are an all too common concept in this day and age. The idea of heroes saving the day has branched off into a number of mediums including televisions and of course movies. It is no different for the likes of anime as making a scene for Toei Animation is none other than My Hero Academia. The manga by Kohei Horikoshi is becoming a global hit as the story of Izuku Midoriya becoming the world’s greatest hero continues to grow in popularity. It has come to the point where the anime has followed many before it and gained its very own movie-My Hero Academia:Two Heroes. Directed by Kenji Nagasaki Two Heroes brings the uprising series to the big screen which could very well bridge My Hero’s popularity into a new format. The film has been in Japanese theaters since August and now the movie has arrived here in the states for a limited release. Animes transitioning to a celluloid format is no easy feat as it can contrast with a series’ storytelling. So for me the question going into this movie was could My Hero Academia make this transition? After watching the movie I can safely say that My Hero Academia: Two Heroes is indeed a solid outing for the series.
The fall season upon us and with it a number of various movies hitting the scene. Some movies become surprises while others tend to be forgotten. The movie in question may in fact be a latter which is the new fantasy film known as The House with A Clock In Its Walls. Directed by Eli Roth the movie is based on the 1973 novel by John Bellairs. With its sense of magic this adaption looked to be an enjoyable fantasy film for the fall season, and after watching The House with A Clock In Its Walls I can say that the new blockbuster was just that.
In 1987 the movie world was changed with the sci-fi action film Predator. What started off as an Arnold Schwarzenegger film turned into a major film franchise that has lurked into theaters on multiple occasions. It has been some time since the Predator has stalked its prey on the silver screen but it seems 2018 was a better time than any for this series to return with its latest installment-The Predator. Directed by Shane Black The Predator sought to bring new life into the series with a sequel of Predator as well as Predator 2. However The Predator has not been met the warmest of receptions as many critics have altogether panned the movie for various reasons. This kind of reaction may be enough to turn anyone away, but in this case of this Film Adventurer I see it as an invitation. So after watching this new installment I can see why many have shunned The Predator, but I would not say that this new film has no merit to it.
