Utopia Review

Seeming to reflect on the times, Utopia presents dangerous ideas without taking time to comment on them. It’s well acted but should have been left to the Brits.
Fantasia Festival 2020 - Come True Review 1

Fantasia 2020 – Come True (2020) Review

Thrusting you into the world of waking nightmares, Come True is a stunning feature reminiscent of Cronenberg and the most styled of terrors. It’s narrative keeps stakes low and it’s finale kicks them to the curb, so it never goes all the way, but it’s worth the blue toned-synth wave ride nonetheless.
The Boys Season 2 Episodes 4-8 Review

The Boys Season 2 Episodes 4-8 Review

The sophomore season of Prime’s cynical superhero black dramedy ups every single ante, digs deeper into themes it previously just danced with and is grounded by the stellar performances of its leading cast. It’s ruthless, blistering, scathing, and all the other adjectives for just that.
Fantasia Festival 2020 - Lucky Review 1

Fantasia 2020 – Lucky Review

Using the best version of sci-fi horror, Lucky creates a ‘through the looking glass’ version of a woman’s reality. It uses the surreal to take on what is very real to so many that makes you frustrated and ecstatic in good measure.

Fantasia 2020 – For the Sake of Vicious

Fans of puzzle games should enjoy the new mechanic of hopping through time to control multiple characters, but as an adaptation of Peaky Blinders, it falls flat.
FANTASIA FESTIVAL 2020: 12 Hour Shift

Fantasia 2020 – 12 Hour Shift

12 Hour Shift is a nasty thriller about an unlikable woman managing intersecting disasters while remaining unphased in a way we expect a trauma nurse working a double to do.
Fantasia Festival 2020: Special Actors 1

Fantasia 2020 – Special Actors (2019) Review

Coming off the success of One Cut of the Dead, Shin’ichirô Ueda is back with another elaborate meta gag about elaborate gags that contain elaborate gags on the backdrop of a twist on filmmaking.
The Boys - Season 2 Episodes 1-3 Reviewed 1

The Boys – Season 2 Episodes 1-3 Reviewed

Manufactured enemies (literally) and private contracts affecting political change continues to hit hard in 2020 and The Boys throws that in our faces while dressing it up with blood, guts, and jarring gags.
