Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

So far this year, Disney has killed it at the box office. With Beauty and the Beast grossing $1.2 billion and Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 grossing $660 million at the box office. Their latest installment of the “Pirates” franchise certainly hasn’t changed pace in what could be another smash hit. “Dead men tell no tales” comes out on ... Read More »

Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol.2

  2017 was always set out to be a big year for everyone, not just in movies. 2016 seemed to be the “year to forget” with many beloved actors passing, and many terrible events taking place across the globe. When it comes to movies themselves though, I thought we had a tremendous year with Marvel movies. Captain America: Civil War ... Read More »

Storms dont dampen the Brisnova spirit

The end of 2016. The end of another convention season, or in some peoples minds – due to the recent events in the US, it’s the end of the world. For me, I think either 2 things are happening. 1. Its been a long year and people are just getting tired, busy with the Christmas lead up, or 2. The ... Read More »
