Mission: Impossible – Fallout (2018) Review

I never really thought of Ethan Hunt being part of the collective action movie zeitgeist until now. Ever since the 1996 debut of this television-to-film reboot Tom Cruise has been indistinguishably linked to the character, and as part of his training for Mission: Impossible – Fallout, he’s ostensibly become him.
Ocean'S 8 Mini- (2018) Review

Ocean’s 8 Mini- (2018) Review

The Oceans series is one of the easiest examples to point to when it comes to popcorn entertainment unique to the medium of film.
Agents Of S.h.i.e.l.d. Season 5 Review

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 5 Review

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has done the impossible. It went from one of the most throwaway action dramas in recent history with season one to one of the most memorable. Over the course of five long years, the series has re-invented itself, and slowly forged a capable band of misfits that are worth watching week after […]
Deadpool 2 Mini-Movie (2018) Review

Deadpool 2 (2018) Review

Deadpool is not an easy character to portray in any medium, and the task of bringing him into the mainstream is a gargantuan ask. Yet, over the course of three (kinda) films, on the back of Ryan Reynolds, Fox managed to do it. Deadpool’s road to successful R-rated films wasn’t an easy one.
Gotham (Season 4) Review 2

Gotham (Season 4) Review

Gotham started out as a raw, boring, and unfocused show. We have the death of Bruce Wayne’s parents and the germ of his literal growing pains on display. Then there’s Jim Gordon, the core focus of Gotham, presented under the guise of a procedural cop drama, solving fanservice cases with his no-nonsense partner. And the […]
Blockers (2018) Review 4

Blockers (2018) Review

I had to second take when I saw the premise for Blockers, the Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg produced and Kay Cannon directed comedy that involved three parents stopping their daughters from enjoying themselves a little too much on their prom night. Cleverly hiding the first part of the title with a drawing of a […]
Rampage (2018) Review 6

Rampage (2018) Review

A Rock movie is far from a sure thing. As a man who has his own section for his filmography on Wikipedia, there are countless ups and downs most of which are billed as action flicks. I grew up watching him sway and show off his swagger in the wrestling ring, and those talents have […]
A Quiet Place (2018) Review 6

A Quiet Place (2018) Review

Horror films, like popcorn action flicks, are a tough nut to crack. Sometimes they’re littered with cheap jump scares and gore to try to elicit a raw sense of emotion, which can be a highly effective way to use the medium. In other instances they seek to build a world worth peering into, one so […]
The Americans Season 6 Opener Review 1

The Americans Season 6 Opener Review

If there was an award for “best low-key TV show,” The Americans would win it year after year. From minute one the cast has been putting in work, showcasing career-best performances from veterans like Keri Russell and Margo Martindale.
Lost In Space Season 1 Review 2

Lost in Space Season 1 Review

Lost in Space was rather bold at the time of its release, despite falling into obscurity over the years. In an era devoid of humanized sci-fi (it even beat Star Trek to the punch by a year), at least by today’s standards, it honed in on family strife and small trials and tribulations rather than […]
