    Your Name: A (Relatively) Spoiler-Free Review

    When I first looked at the theatrical posters for Makoto Shinkai’s Your Name, I was not particularly intrigued by its images.   School boy meets school girl. Quelle surprise, the poster narrative for the Japanese animé experience. Do I want to subject myself to two hours of torture by watching something so overdone? But thanks […]

    Freehold by Michael Z. Williamson

      Freehold is an interesting read … BUT … you have to wade through the boring parts in the beginning quarter to half of the book before it really starts to grip you and the last quarter – well that part won’t let you go! Freehold centers around a woman named Kendra. At the beginning […]

    What Westworld’s Creator Thinks Of Fan Theories

    Westworld quickly managed to accrue a cult following, with audiences creating fan theories in an attempt to solve the show’s mysteries. Many of these theories were in fact correct, ruining some of the big revelations from the finale.

    TV Review: THE FLASH: Season 3, Episode 17: Duet [The CW]

    The Flash: Duet Review The CW’s The Flash: Season 3, Episode 17: ‘Duet’ was a very entertaining hour filled with songs, gangsters, and some awkward situations. If you aren’t into musicals, then this episode probably won’t be your cup of tea. However, if you love the idea of seeing two superheroes performing musical numbers, then […]

    Intergalactic Wizard Scout by Rodney Hartman

      Over the years I’ve read a couple of books and series that have started out well, but over the course of multiple books, gotten quite a bit “less good” and somewhat tedious.  Unfortunately, Intergalactic Wizard Scout is one of these in my opinion. While the writing itself is nothing to write home about, the […]

    Logan : Movie Review

    It’s hard to believe that it’s been seventeen years since Hugh Jackman first suited up to play Wolverine/ Logan. I remarked to a friend of mine that Hugh Jackman had been Wolverine one year longer than we had been friends. That said, I knew it was going to be bittersweet seeing him pop his claws […]

    Great Comic Book Covers- Feat: The Hulk

    They always say  ” never judge a book by it’s cover”, and while that’s proven to be true on many an occasion this installment is about the latter. More specifically, judging the cover itself. What makes a great cover? Is it the art? The artist? The action? The drama? The significance? All these factors do […]

    TV Review: LEGION: Season 1, Episode 1: Chapter 1 [FX]

    Legion Chapter 1 Review FX‘s Legion: Season 1, Episode 1: Chapter 1 is the best kind of weird. It is a lot like a student art film with a hefty production budget. And that is a good thing. Legion uses the mental state of our lead character David Haller (Dan Stevens) as a key visual element. It […]

    Lego Batman – BAM, POW

    We’ve seen many incarnations of Batman since he first made the jump from the comic book page to the screen. He’s been both campy and gritty, animated and live action, and occasionally cringe-inducing (yes, I’m referring to you, “Batman and Robin”). He also ended up stealing the show in tiny brick form in 2014’s unexpected […]

    10 Tactical RPGs You May Not Have Heard Of, But Are Actually Pretty Decent

    Turn-Based Tactical RPGs, or Simulation RPGs as dubbed in Japan, is my favourite video game genre, no questions asked. There is just something about methodically ruining an opponent’s army without the stress that comes with the genre’s Real Time counterparts. The 90s saw the genre’s establishing fathers: Shining Force, Fire Emblem, Front Mission, Final Fantasy […]
