Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a really entertaining Star Wars movie with a unique voice and vision. It’s a very funny movie like The Force Awakens. The fan service doesn’t come at the expense of the characters or story. The action sequences are among the best in a Star Wars movie. Overall, it’s an enjoyable movie. It has some of the best performances in the entire saga, a compelling and conflicted villain, and tons of surprises.

Avengers: Infinity WarRated PG-13Avengers: Infinity Warcheck price

Marvel and the Russo Brothers have done a great job of understanding what these characters are to so many fans. It’s a very fun, exciting, and enjoyable movie. Thanos feels like a real badass villain. Every scene feels huge and the humor is on point and it’s funny when it needs to be. It’s packed with action scenes, memorable characters, and some shocking moments. The biggest praise we can give it is that we can’t wait to see what happens next!

Black PantherRated PG-13Black Panthercheck price

Although Black Panther is not a flawless film, it’s a real blast. Instead of making another superhero movie, there’s actually a relevant message in this movie. My favorite part is how the characters get to the point where they are looking at themselves and looking at how they can make their lives, friendships, and the world better as a result. Killmonger is a great villain. It starts out as a regular superhero movie then kicks it into high gear towards the middle. But what’s really amazing about this film is you’re not thinking about the action, you’re thinking about the things that shape these characters into who they become.

Thor: RagnarokRated PG-13Thor: Ragnarokcheck price

This film does what Winter Soldier did for Captain America. This movie gives Thor a major boost, likability, and a great sense of freshness. What’s so great is that it takes everything we know about Thor and dismantles it. But the heart of his character is still intact. Everyone in the movie steals the movie. This is easily one of my favorite Marvel movies. It’s everything I want to see in a superhero movie. It’s extremely fun and likable and the action scenes are like an adrenaline-rush. This is easily the best of the Thor movies and it’s extremely funny. It’s one of those movies that’s so satisfying to experience that you forget you’re watching a movie because you’re so wrapped up in it. Get ready to have a blast; it’s a great superhero movie.

Justice LeagueRated PG-13Justice Leaguecheck price

Justice League feels like a consistent movie even though it was directed by two people. It’s a surprisingly light-hearted movie. It’s an easy, enjoyable watch. It was a delight to see The Flash brought to life on the silver screen. It’s a step in the right direction, but it feels a bit rushed perhaps due to Warner’s 2-hour movie limit mandate. There wasn’t as much depth in the team as there could have been. Hard-core comics fans will appreciate the film more than general audiences. It’s self-aware and entertaining but disposable.

Jurassic World: Fallen KingdomRated PG-13Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdomcheck price

Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom didn’t have many memorable sequences. Surprisingly, it makes a choice halfway through to become a different type of film. It becomes a monster movie in a big house. Although the CGI is impressive and they’ve done some incredible work, the movie fails to live up to the high expectations of Jurassic Park.

Tomb RaiderRated PG-13Tomb Raidercheck price

Tomb Raider is based on the 2013 reboot game and it follows it very closely. This is one of the most visually faithful videogame adaptations ever made. Fans of the game will be happy to see it faithfully translated onto the big screen. The character of Lara Croft has never been more realistically portrayed in a movie. Alicia Vikander does an excellent job of portraying Lara. Tomb Raider fans will mostly be happy with this adaptation. It’s a fun action thriller.

Ready Player OneRated PG-13Ready Player Onecheck price

Directed by Steven Spielberg, Ready Player One excels in its dazzling action sequences. However, the characters don’t have as much staying power as the awe-inspiring visuals. There’s joy in seeing video game and anime character references. Spielberg’s razor-sharp command of stunning action sequences and his unique sensibilities for sustained awe are unmatched. It’s enjoyably diverting and speaks to the nerd in us in some way, shape, or form. The film’s message could have been better with more scrutiny around why Wade and his friends feel disenchanted with the real world as they do.

Disney Pixar The Incredibles 2Rated PGDisney Pixar The Incredibles 2check price

The Incredibles 2 is a fantastic movie. It’s extremely exciting and fun to watch. It understands what a superhero movie needs and has great messages underneath. The animation is stunning and has improved as has the depth and clarity of the images. The action sequences are enthralling. The lighting is impressive and represents Pixar’s best work. The characters feel fresh with intelligent conversation. The movie was epic and exhilarating. Brad Bird wrote a compelling story true to the original while also creating an exciting movie.

Solo: A Star Wars StoryRated PG-13Solo: A Star Wars Storycheck price

Have you ever wondered how Hans Solo met Chewbacca or how he got his last name? Solo is a standalone movie in the Star Wars universe that gives us a back story to Hans Solo. Alden Ehrenreich does a great job filling Harrison Ford’s shoes, but it’s Donald Glover’s portrayal of Lando that manages to steal the show.

Netflix Gift CardNetflix Gift Cardcheck price

This Netflix gift card makes it easy to give a Netflix subscription as a gift. It’s so much more personal than just cash and lets him binge watch his favorite shows.

Deadpool 2Rated RDeadpool 2check price

Deadpool 2 is a blast to watch with no shortage of epic action scenes. Most jokes are very funny, although not all land. Surprisingly, this movie brings Deadpool down to Earth. It explores more of Wade Wilson and less of Deadpool. This movie does a great job of subverting expectations while also being a little bit of the same. Certain portions of the plot felt recycled. Brolin’s character adds so much to this movie. The action scenes are phenomenal and it’s a very funny movie. It’s fun and satisfying for Deadpool fans.

Fast & Furious 8-Movie CollectionRated PG-13Fast & Furious 8-Movie Collectioncheck price

Love The Fast and The Furious? Then you’ll love this adrenaline-fueled Fast & Furious 8-Movie Collection, which includes The Fate of the Furious. Buckle up for non-stop action and mind-blowing speed as the all-star cast pursues justice and survival as they race from LA to Tokyo, Rio to London, and Cuba to New York City.

Movie Gift CardMovie Gift Cardcheck price

Who doesn’t love a night out at the movies? For the 13 year old that loves the movies, this movie gift card makes the perfect stocking stuffer.

AquamanRated PG-13Aquamancheck price

Aquaman is silly and purposely over-the-top movie. It’s a really entertaining movie and you can’t help but smile. It’s a beautiful movie and the work on display really impresses. It’s a bright and vivid movie reminiscent of Avatar. The main actor brings physicality to the action scenes. It’s among the best action in the DC universe. Everything from the action sequences to visual effects to musical score is really well executed although it does suffer from some narrative and pacing issues.

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-VerseRated PGSpider-Man: Into The Spider-Versecheck price

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse is an animated movie featuring Miles Morales in his first feature film. When he’s bitten by a radioactive spider, he stumbles upon a machine that enables parallel universes containing other Spider-Men and Spider-Women to collide. They have to team up against the Kingpin. Surprisingly, this is even better than Homecoming and the animation is spectacular. The characters are more developed and the movie has better storytelling. Where this movie succeds is it really feels cohesive as a whole and the comedy binds it together so well. It’s surprisingly hilarious. Humor is brilliantly used throughout to improve the impact of the storytelling. It’s easily the most comic-book inspired Spider-Man movie ever. There are some fun cameos and a top-notch end credit scene you don’t want to miss. It’s evident the makers understand the characters of Spider-Man so well, as they’re really well realized. The action sequences are thrilling and the humor is great, making it one of the better Spider-Man movies. In fact, it’s so good that we can’t wait for a sequel.

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of GrindelwaldRated NRFantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwaldcheck price

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald is both a prequel and sequel. This is easily the worst of the Harry Potter movies, as some may find it boring. It almost seems like you don’t care much about these characters. The biggest hit against this movie is that it’s so messy, packed with too much, and hard to follow even for long-time fans. But by no means is it an awful movie, as there’s some enjoyment here. Visually it’s beautiful and most of the performances are excellent. In the opening of the film they setup the villain but failed to really do anything with his powers. Because it acts like its epic, we can still see fans liking the movie. But it’s slow-paced and really drawn out. For die-hard Harry Potter fans, there are things that don’t make sense. Although it’s a bit disappointing, fans may still want to check out this installment.

BumblebeeRated PG-13Bumblebeecheck price

With a new director, setting, and star, Bumblebee condenses a lot of what the Transformers movies have overblown. It’s easily the best of the Transformers movies since the first. What makes this different is they understand what Transformers fans want to see. This film has a sense of joy that’s missing in the Michael Bey Transformers movies. It’s a fresh new vision that course corrects the franchise. Bumblebee is an enjoyable movie. Unlike other Transformers films, you won’t feel bad about seeing it, because it’s plain fun. Steinfeld is terrific in the movie and the action sequences are well executed. Fans will appreciate there’s a Transformers movie that respects the legacy.

VenomRated PG-13Venomcheck price

Although Venom is a miss-fire, there are glimpses of how good it could have been. The back and forth between Eddy Brock and Venom — the personality inside of him and the arguments between them — is one of our favorite aspects of the movie. This personality conflict was richly entertaining and humorous, but we would have liked to see more of that. Tom Hardy was good but the action scenes were a letdown. The script doesn’t do this movie justice and the scenes look fabricated. It also seems the PG-13 rating kept this movie from being better than it could have been, as the violence has been toned down significantly to fit into the Spider-Man universe in the future. Given the potential of the movie, this was massively disappointing but some people may still enjoy it.

Marvel Studios Cinematic Universe: Phase 1 – Collector’s EditionRated PGMarvel Studios Cinematic Universe: Phase 1 - Collectors Editioncheck price

Marvel Studios Cinematic Universe: Phase 1 features Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger, and Avengers Assemble in this Collector’s Edition. Since this is a region-free blu-ray collection, they can be used in the U.S. The DVD version does not work in the U.S. The package artwork, art cards, and movie poster are all awesome — making this worth owning. In addition the discs are individually packaged in their own plastic blu-ray slots. It’s a great value as a bundle and a worthy addition to any Marvel fans’ collection.

Marvel Studios Cinematic Universe: Phase 2 – Collector’s EditionRated NRMarvel Studios Cinematic Universe: Phase 2 - Collectors Editioncheck price

Phase 2 of the MCU Collector’s Edition includes Iron Man 3, Thor: The Dark World, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Guardians of the Glaxy, Avengers: Age of Ultron, and Ant-Man. If you’ve always been looking for a collection like this, this blu-ray edition is perfect because it’s region-free and works in the U.S. The DVD version is not compatible with U.S. DVD players. Compared to purchasing individually, this bundle pack saves you money. The awesome collector package artwork and movie posters alone makes them worthy of your Marvel fanatic’s collection.

Ant-Man and The WaspRated PG-13Ant-Man and The Waspcheck price

The Ant-Man and the Wasp features a talented cast and the movie follows Ant-Man on his last few days of house arrest following the events in Civil War. It’s a very easy-going film and it’s designed to just be fun to watch. While it’s not as good as the first film, it was entertaining. The narrative isn’t as strong this time around, as I felt quite a bit for Scott Lang and his plight in the first film. This movie is hilarious at times. We weren’t fans of the fact that they didn’t explain the events that happened in the final part of the movie.

Marvel Studios Cinematic Universe: Phase 3 – Part One – Collector’s EditionRated NRMarvel Studios Cinematic Universe: Phase 3 - Part One - Collectors Editioncheck price

The third phase of the MCU Collector’s Edition features Captain America: Civil War, Doctor Strange, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and Thor Ragnarok. This blu-ray collection works in the States but the DVD version does not. In addition to the movies, you also get bonus content like the Making Ofs and Deleted/Extended Scenes. This is not a complete set – this is only part one with more to come in the future. Still, it’s a great value versus purchasing separately.

Wonder WomanRated PG-13Wonder Womancheck price

Patty Jenkins delivered one of the most satisfying DC movies in years and she did Wonder Woman justice with a powerful character with a surprising amount of depth. We thought Gal Gadot and Chris Pine delivered wonderful performances. While the movie had its fair share of action, it was not really an action movie. Instead the focus was more on the story of Diana. It really was a breath of fresh air for comic book related movies and an entertaining movie worth watching.

LoganRated RLogancheck price

Logan is one badass Wolverine movie. It’s a great swan song for Hugh Jackman who goes out on top and Wolverine. The characters are well-developed and the story was genuinely interesting. Jackman and Stewart delivered stunning performances. This really is an R rated movie with strong language and violence so it’s not for the faint of heart. It’s definitely among the best Marvel movies in years.

Looking for the entire Transformers movie collection? This 5-Movie Boxed collection contains all five Michael Bey Transformers films in their full glory. Buckle up and get ready for an action-packed extravaganza. It makes a great gift for the die-hard Transformers fan not to mention you get great bang for the buck.

Love The Fast and The Furious? Then you’ll love this adrenaline-fueled Fast & Furious 8-Movie Collection, which includes The Fate of the Furious. Buckle up for non-stop action and mind-blowing speed as the all-star cast pursues justice and survival as they race from LA to Tokyo, Rio to London, and Cuba to New York City. This explosive, high-octane franchise is jam-packed with action and stunts. Bonus content includes hours of bonus features like deleted scenes, outtakes, behind-the-scenes featurettes, feature commentaries, and much more. It’s the perfect gift for Fast and the Furious fans.

The Death of SupermanRated NRThe Death of Supermancheck price

The Death of Superman brings back a familiar storyline we’ve seen before. While this version is closer to the comics than past versions, it fails to bring anything fresh to this tale. It also doesn’t give the plot elements enough room to truly resonate with fans. Also, we weren’t too thrilled about the villain, Doomsday, as he seems to merely be a plot device. Wonder Woman is the only one who seems to have any emotional connection to Superman. Overall, it begs the question: Why kill off Superman if you’re not going to explore into any newer or greater effect than before? The animation lacks the visual flair to distinguish it from others; it all just feels too similar to past entries. The sequel setup is obvious and quick that it undercuts the need to mourn Superman or hunger for his return.

Planet of the Apes TrilogyRated PG-13Planet of the Apes Trilogycheck price

Rise of the Apes Trilogy includes all three movies in this series: Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, and War of the Planet of the Apes. Rise is a decent movie but the effects do look a bit dated. However, it’s a great setup for a trilogy. Dawn is the highlight of this trilogy. War For The Planet of the Apes is the conclusion to this epic trilogy. The sense of realism has never been greater. The apes look so life-like and deliver nothing short of amazing performances. It’s a movie filled with surprises, emotions, drama, and action. Just don’t expect it to be heavy on the action. Nevertheless, it was the perfect way to end this cool trilogy.

Marvel Studios Cinematic Universe: Phase 3 – Part TwoRated PG-13Marvel Studios Cinematic Universe: Phase 3 - Part Twocheck price

The Cinematic Universe: Phase 3 – Part 2 boxed set includes Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War, Ant-Man and the Wasp, Captain Marvel, Avengers: Endgame, and Spider-Man: Far From Home. This is a fantastic collection of Marvel movies. Avengers: Endgame is the biggest box-office blockbuster and Spider-Man: Far From Home was a great film. It also offers 2 special discs loaded with bonus content. It’s a fantastic addition to your movie collection and a cost-effective way to have all these movies in your collection. It’s a must-have for all MCU fans.

Mission: Impossible: The 6-Movie CollectionRated PG-13Mission: Impossible: The 6-Movie Collectioncheck price

Is he a huge Mission: Impossible fan? Then you’ll want to add this must-have complete 6 movie bundle to your collection. It contains all six movies in the blockbuster action-packed series. Each movie comes on a separate disc. These are great popcorn movies that don’t disappoint.

Star Wars: The Rise of SkywalkerRated PG-13Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalkercheck price

Rise of the Skywalker is a bit of a mixed bag. With that said, it’s not a movie we hate and it’s not as bad as some people say. The biggest complaint is that the story is a bit messy with a convoluted, boring opening act. There’s a lot of explaining and catch-up. They managed to get Leia into this conclusion without botching it. It’s a beautiful movie with exciting action scenes. But even though it’s visually appealing, it seems to be lacking something emotionally. Kylo Ren is explored deeply in this film, which is satisfying. There are aspects hardcore fans will like and dislike. The characters are handled well, there are fun action sequences, but as a trilogy it doesn’t feel as a cohesive whole.

Sonic The HedgehogRated PGSonic The Hedgehogcheck price

Sonic fans will want to check out Sonic the Hedgehog. Fans won’t be disappointed by Sonic’s portrayal. It’s by no means a great movie, but it’s as good as a Sonic movie can get. While there aren’t a whole lot of surprises, it’s enjoyable along the way. The new character design overhaul was definitely worth it. This doesn’t feel like a cash grab — they really took care in crafting something that’s entertaining for fans. Jim Carrey has a lot of fun in his role as Dr. Robotnik. If you’re not already a Sonic fan, you’re probably not going to like this movie. Although it’s full of cliches and tropes, it’s going to please most Sonic fans. Quite frankly, it’s better than most video game movies.

Avengers: EndgameRated PG-13Avengers: Endgamecheck price

Avengers: Endgame brings several storylines to a fantastic conclusion and it’s a highly satisfying film. The Avengers feel the most human they’ve ever felt. While the first act is slow and the second act is packed with action, the final act is pure awesomeness. While the pacing and cohesiveness of the film is as not as good as Infinity War, Endgame is more emotionally satisfying and takes more risks. It’s an enjoyeable film that delivers plenty of fan service. Most fans will love this film. It’s one of the biggest box office blockbusters of all-time.

Kano PC – 11.6″ Touchscreen Laptop & TabletKano PC - 11.6" Touchscreen Laptop & Tabletcheck price

Does your kid dream of making their very own computer? The Kano PC kit is one of the most popular STEM kits for kids enabling them to build a Surface-like Windows-based PC/tablet convertible with an 11.6-inch, 720P touchscreen display. The best part? Kano designed it so that anyone can build it by following the instructions, without any technical expertise. It offers simple LEGO-like assembly with pre-installed educational software and Windows 10 Home. It’s worth noting that it’s not a full PC build — the processor and RAM are pre-installed. Still, it’s well-designed and delivers an enjoyable building experience. We highly recommend Kano’s official mouse, as the trackpad is a bit small and finicky. Also, it doesn’t include a webcam — it’s sold separately. Another shortcoming is that the viewing angle can’t be changed like the Surface. Once you build your computer, you can surf the web, explore YouTube, create art, and even learn the basics of programming. Its battery life comes in at up to 9 hours. While it’s not perfect — designed for learning and creation, the Kano PC is perfect for inspiring the creators of tomorrow.
