The Good Place has been renewed for season 4

Perhaps it will never reach the popularity of say, Friends, but The Good Place is an excellent and unique sitcom in its own right. Luckily for fans of the Michael Schur-created show, the light-hearted, philosophy and ethics-driven comedy wi...

Review: Ralph Breaks the Internet

There probably isn't a more recognizable movie formula than the one in Disney animated films. They take familiar stories, myths, and general concepts, create a light-hearted story with some basic virtues and life lessons, and probably throw...

Review: The Girl in the Spider's Web

Lisbeth Salander should not be a superheroine. While the character is resourceful and strong, physically, mentally, and morally, The Girl in the Spider's Web turned her into some sort of action movie secret agent-type. As satisfying as...

The only film in what I adamantly do not call the "DC Extended Universe" (although I guess I just did) that people universally like is Wonder Woman, but it appears that the sequel Wonder Woman 1984 will take a bit longer to r...

Review: Titans (Season 1)

There comes a point in one's life where they become disillusioned with the world and their surroundings, and when one's optimism and idealism become cynicism and nihilism. In Titans, that disillusionment is a constant in a wo...
