    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 […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

    Arrival: Movie Review

    Ever since I stumbled on the trailer for this movie, I’ve been looking forward to it’s release. Being a Science Fiction fan, clearly the subject matter appeals to me but having director, Denis Villeneuve attached sealed it for me. Villeneuve’s last two films, Siccario & Prisoners, were both strong, especially Siccario. Would Arrival live up […]

    Doctor Strange: Movie Review

    It took a long time but Marvel’s sorcerer supreme finally got his own movie. As you may or may not have expected, the fanfare going into this movie was decent at best and tepid at worst. Still, this being a Marvel movie, it made a killing at the box office. I’ve always been a fan […]

    Suicide Squad: Movie Review

    After sub par movies, Batman vs Superman and the divisive Man Of Steel, I was really hoping for Suicide Squad to be amazing. The critical reception thus far has not been good. Is it DC bashing? Or even more unlikely, is there a Marvel conspiracy? Well, I went to see Suicide Squad to form my […]

    Batman: The Killing Joke: Movie review

    Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to watch the animated version of The Killing Joke on the big screen. There was a lot of hype surrounding this movie. What, if anything would they omit? What would they add? Most Importantly, would it live up to the quality of it’s comic book predecessor? Let’s dive in and […]

    DC: Rebirth: By Geoff Johns & various artists DC comics has rebooted… Yet again. After the lukewarm reception of 2012’s the new 52, DC tried a minor retooling with DC now, but that was received even worse than the new 52. This time Dc: Rebirth promised to give fans what they wanted. An old school […]

    Why X-Men Apocalypse Did Not X-ceed X-pectations

    X-Men Apocalypse, the third film among the soft-rebooted X-Men cinematic universe, has been widely met with mixed reviews, one of which was written by a colleague, valentinf. I am inclined to agree with the bag of mixed nuts and as an addendum, I’d like to share in detail the finer points of failure. I do […]

    X-men: Apocalypse – REVIEW

    Summer movie season is in full effect with the arrival of the third movie of the, sort of rebooted X-men franchise. X-men: Apocalypse hit theaters on Friday May 27th, so how was it? Let’s dive in. I’ve got to say that thanks to X-men: Days Of Future Past, I don’t know what timeline to follow. […]

    Captain America: Civil War

    The Avengers have faced some difficult opponents, either as a team or on their own: the Red Skull, Loki, the Mandarin, Ultron. However, in “Captain America: Civil War,” they face a new kind of enemy: each other. “Civil War” divides the Avengers, forcing them to align with either Iron Man or Captain America. Iron Man […]
