Review: Red Handed

Pagan horror is one of the most maligned styles of the horror genre. Though some low-budget efforts like Wake Wood can drag you in a surprising and interesting direction, the bulk are just pretenders to The Wicker Man throne. Even a fi...

Sci-fi author Jeff VanderMeer's Borne series optioned at AMC

Recap: The Mandalorian Season 1, Episode 4 - Sanctuary

If anyone watching The Mandalorian had somehow missed that this show was a Western, here is an episode that is pretty blatant with all of the associated tropes. In what was basically The Magnificent Seven in space, Mando has become the "Man...

Review: It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia - Season 14

It's surprising to see a show like It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia still on the air in 2019. Never one to shy away from controversial topics, the series has made a name for itself by featuring some of the "worst" characters ever committed...

Deep Analysis: Frozen

I shouldn't have to explain what Frozen is.  The concept of cultural osmosis fascinates me. Essentially, the idea is that even if you haven't experienced an aspect of culture, in this case pop culture, you're still aware of its existen...

The Byrnes are probably the worst on-screen family ever

There's just something about getting together with family that brings the worst out in people. While we all love our relatives (mostly), getting together during the holiday seasons causes people to go stir crazy. Either because of politics ...

Review: Queen & Slim

Early on in Queen & Slim, after our inciting event of police brutality sets our titular duo on the run, a character greets the pair with the line "weell, if it isn't the black Bonnie and Clyde." The analogy is an easy one to draw, both ...

Review: The Good Liar

For the most part, I was completely engrossed by The Good Liar. A watertight plot, compelling performances from Ian McKellen and Helen Mirren -- their best outside their usual roles. To me, it seemed to herald an earlier time when a detec...

Review: White Snake

If there were a culture whose folkloric history could be treated as a goldmine for adaptable material, you'd be hard-pressed to find annals of stories and heroes to rival those of China. Not even touching upon the tumultuous and dramatic hi...

Recap: The Mandalorian Season 1, Episode 3 - The Sin

It has been hard to see most of the Star Wars stuff in the Disney era to be nothing more than homages to the original trilogy. With The Mandalorian, I feel as if fans are getting more of a remix across all Star Wars eras in a way we've neve...

Recap: The Mandalorian Season 1, Episode 2 - The Child

So this is the kind of show The Mandalorian will be, eh? After an intriguing series premiere, the second episode of this Star Wars Disney+ original is more of a small step in terms of plot, one that doesn't move the story significantly forw...

No one is surprised: Frozen 2 breaks records, makes money

If you had told me when Frozen 2 was announced that it was going to break some box office records and make a lot of money, I would have agreed with you completely because I'm not an idiot. And Frozen 2 did indeed do those things. ...

Review: 21 Bridges

With today's biggest movies often taking us to distant galaxies or featuring superhuman brawls, it doesn't seem often that we get big budget, glossy films about... regular people. Where's the tense thriller about plumbers rushing around in ...

This year has felt somewhat empty for Whovians like myself. There hasn't been any new Doctor Who. Fortunately, the show will return in 2020. To prepare us for this, BBC has released a new trailer teasing the coming season.
