Which film has gotten me this excited? THE SHAPE OF WATER, directed by Guillermo del Toro, who is without a doubt, a self proclaimed fanboy, and perhaps the poster child for fanboys everywhere. Del Toro is famed for bringing us great fantasy stories. HELLBOY 1 & 2, PAN’S LABYRINTH, and PACIFIC RIM, are just a few that bring us into his world, and his slant on addressing every day life situations.

This latest superhero film from MARVEL Studios, is still as exciting as the first, and is what’s being termed, you guessed it, a reboot of a reboot. The first Spider-man film was released in 2002, with Tobey Maquire, and two sequels followed in 2004, and 2007.

My first film review published in the Tri County Sun was, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES, May 31, 2011. It seems befitting that 6 years later, to the date, I would be reviewing yet another in the series of these films. Once again, Johnny Depp returns to the high seas as Captain Jack Sparrow in, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES.

Disney has given us some of the greatest fairy tale films of all time, but generally they have always been animated…NOT ANYMORE! They have started a new trend, taking their most popular, and beloved animated films, and making them live! Disney brings us, BEAUTY AND THE BEAST, in all its splendor and beauty, based on the animated original from 1991.

The Marvel Comics character of Doctor Strange, first appeared in the comic book, Strange Tales #110 July 1963. He had story lines in other limited run issues, until a few years later, when he had his own monthly comic book. Now 53 years later, Doctor Strange comes to the big-screen in a new blockbuster film.

The Marvel Universe has certainly taken over the box office every summer for quite some time now and this year is no exception. We started the summer with The Avengers:Age of Ultron and now as summer presses on we have Marvel‘s latest superhero film: Ant-man!

Stephen King‘s first film was based on his book, Carrie back in the 1970′s, from there he has had over 50 films adapted from his works ranging from feature films, television mini-series, television shows, plays, and “Dollar Baby” short films. The torch, so to speak, seems to be passing along to one of his sons, Joe Hill (who starred in King’s film, Creepshow).

When it comes to “time travel” films or shows, one thinks of Back to the Future, Bill & Ted, or even Dr. Who, but time travel in a Superhero movie? Would it work? Well, that’s the beauty of Superhero movies…anything is possible. This film is a “double-sequel”. It is a sequel to the 2011 box office hit, X-men: First Class and also to 2006, X-men: The Last Stand. This film brings the cast of characters from both together in one film.
