The Decade Decathlon: 2013

Welcome back to the Decade Decathlon, where we're taking an extended look back at the past decade of filmmaking to see what worked, what didn't, and what stories we can learn from the past. I'm sure that there are more tactful ways of going...

Review: Millennium Actress

We live in an age where we have instant access to any form of media at the drop of a hat. If you want to watch a new movie, all you need to do is to go to a movie theater and watch it. Or if you don't want to leave the comfort of your own h...

Review: The Art of Racing in the Rain

Greetings once more humans. It is I. Lacey the Bassett-Beagle. I have been doing me a snoozle for the past couple of months. There haven't been any good doggo movies for me to see. It did me a sad. Jesse saw A Dog's Purpose months ago, but ...

Review: Dora and the Lost City of Gold

What a world we live in where Dora and the Lost City of Gold is a real movie. When you think of some TV shows for kids, it's almost impossible to imagine them as a live-action feature film. Sure, in theory you could make a movie adaptation ...

Review: She-Ra and the Princesses of Power (Season 3)

It's been a hot few months, so it must be time for a new season of She-Ra and the Princesses of Power. It feels weird that I've become as obsessed about this show as I've had, but ever since the series debuted last November on Netflix, it's...

Preacher is the best show you should have watched

In less than one week, Preacher will start its final season. For some, they couldn't be more excited to see how the story of Jesse Custer finally ends. For most, they probably never heard of the show. In the age of high quality TV shows, no...

Beyond the Valley of the Dolls is now the best Disney movie

It seems as the more time passes, the closer we get to Disney controlling most of the free world. That may seem like an exaggeration, but Disney is inching ever closer to outright harnessing your childhood and every media franchise related ...

The Uncanny Valley is just lazy production design

On Thursday, July 18th, all of the eyes of nerd culture should have been turned towards San Diego Comic-Con. What has been known as one of the biggest entertainment media expos of the past decade, which has only grown in size in recent year...

On behalf of theatre fans I apologize for the Cats trailer

I've been trying to rewrite this intro for the better for part 10 minutes just trying to succinctly sum up my thoughts on the Cats trailer now that it's here, but I could never find a way that accurately summed up my feelings for it. There...

Ranking the best Pixar movies (and Cars 2 I guess...)

(ED Note: This feature originally ran in June of 2018. It has been updated the include the latest Pixar releases.) I've been a fan of Pixar for most of my life. Whenever Pixar gets around to making a new movie, whether it's an original...

Review: Midsommar

If I'm being perfectly honest with myself, I've been pretty disillusioned with the horror genre in recent months. I really do hate to be the kind of old man that groans "they don't make them like they used to" but I really do think that hor...

An autopsy of the Marvel/Netflix shows

With Disney+ looming over all other streaming services, it was only inevitable that the Marvel/Netflix shows would meet their end. With the slow but steady cancellation of all of the Marvel shows starting in October of last year, it was les...

Review: Norm of the North: King Sized Adventure

For the past week, I've been down in the swamplands of Georgia hanging out with friends and having a complete blast at an event called HvZ Endwar. Imagine tag with Nerf Blasters, zombies, and tons of music and you'll have a pretty solid ide...

Review: Jessica Jones Season 3

During the lead up to the final season of Jessica Jones, I both wanted and didn't want the show to air. With the end of this show, we've officially reached the end of the Marvel/Netflix shows that have been around since 2015 and have given ...

The Decade Decathlon: 2011

Review: Shaft

Do you know how refreshing it is to say that there's a new Shaft movie? While I never grew up watching the original Richard Roundtree trilogy of films, or the short-lived miniseries, I always knew just how cool, suave, and badass he wa...

Wonder Woman 1984 gets a colorful as hell first poster

It's been a long time since we've last heard about Wonder Woman 1984, hasn't it? Originally slated for November of this year, it was eventually pushed back for a June 2020 release date, leaving a big Patty Jenkins shaped hole in our hearts....

Another Dragon Ball Super movie is in development

For all of you Dragon Ball Z fans out there, you may be wondering exactly when Dragon Ball Super would be continuing. Earlier this year we had the superb Dragon Ball Super: Broly rock everyone's socks off, but there was still no update on e...

The best modern animated shows that you haven't heard of

In case it was hard to tell, I love animation. I love all kinds of animation, from hand drawn to CGI, from claymation to pain staiking oil paintings, from classic Fleisher era to modern Disney, for kids or for adults, if you put me in front...

Review: Rocketman

Hey, did you think Bohemian Rhapsody kinda sucked and wasn't authentic about the artist it was trying to portray? Good, this is that done right.

Rambo Last Blood's trailer bleeds the franchise dry

Sylvester Stallone has been on a kick recently of tackling his old, iconic roles in new and interesting ways. I never realized I wanted to see a Rocky movie where Rocky became Mickey, but that's exactly what Creed delivered in spades. It w...

Review: Made in Abyss: Wandering Twilight

When I covered Made in Abyss: Journey's Dawn back in March, I have to admit that I was a little bit disappointed afterwards. The movie itself is still pretty good, but I remembered the series being so much better than what Journey's Da...

Westworld III's trailer is full of Brain Damage

Now that Game of Thrones is over, it seems like HBO is throwing us new trailers every other day to keep people subscribed to them now that the epic fantasy drama has ended. First we had Watchmen debut its trailer while still not givin...

Review: A Dog's Journey

Four dead dogs.  Over the course of an hour and a half, there are four on screen dog deaths. One dies from injection, one gets in a car accident, one dies in its sleep, and the last just wanders off into the woods, fully aware that he'...

Pokemon: Spell of the Unown is still the best Pokemon movie

So that Detective Pikachu movie was pretty good, wasn't it? It's not like I was expecting it to be a train-wreck or anything, but you can never be too sure with video game adaptations. Even when they're decent, like that Silent Hill movie t...
