Wonder Woman | DAGeeks Movie Review

Total Score

Total ScoreIt is difficult nowadays to hold high expectations for movies, particularly for superhero movies, especially those coming from the DC cinematic universe. A long-time fan of the DC comics and heroes, I’ve often looked forward to the superhero movies that came out, although never particularly satisfied or pleased by them – ‘serviceable, but fun enough’ is usually the best I can say of many of these movies as a whole. However, I found myself solidly pleased by Wonder Woman. A powerful blockbuster-level movie with a female lead character in…

The Case for Christ | DAGeeks Movie Review

Total Score

Total ScoreThe Case for Christ is a faith movie which covers the life story of Lee Strobel, an investigative journalist who applies his skill and reasoning to disprove the legitimacy of Christianity. Set at the turn of the decade from the 70s to the 80s, the styling of the actors and the scenery is clearly felt. While the movie is principally focused on the strength of the narrative, it has its fair share of well-executed shots. The acting and the direction of certain scenes are, unfortunately, probably one of the…
