A Kingdom Hearts TV show may be coming to Disney+

I wish I was one of the many people out there who had no knowledge of Kingdom Hearts. As a staple franchise of the PS2, Kingdom Hearts received tons of praise for its first two console installments for its fun gameplay, enjoyable characters...

Review: She-Ra and the Princesses of Power (Season 5)

Finales are hard. Some finales are able to meet the heavy burden of fan expectation like Breaking Bad's sensational finale that still gives me chills to this day, delivering exactly what fans wanted while crafting an ending that feels justi...

The DCEU is in a much healthier position than the MCU

Two years ago, the DCEU was a joke. When DC set out to create a cinematic universe to rival Marvel's history making experiment, the results were almost always going to pale in comparison to whatever Marvel did. That didn't mean that the pro...

Swamp Thing will raise them bones on the CW... kind of

Just when you thought the saga of Swamp Thing was done, somehow it manages to crop up again in the oddest of ways. Last year, DC Universe premiered their premiere horror title Swamp Thing to modest praise, but it was everything else surroun...

Tribeca Review: Asia

There's nothing quite like watching a movie about dying teenagers, is there? From The Fault In Our Stars to Me, Earl, and the Dying Girl, movies about terminal illnesses in adolescents might not be as common as you may think, but they almos...

Tribeca Review: Banksy Most Wanted

While I was living in the UK in 2015, there was one place that my friends and I always wanted to go: Dismaland. The theme park was billed as being one of the most depressing places on Earth, a den of misery and depression that took several ...

Tribeca Review: 12 Hour Shift

Is the world of organ trafficking ripe for cinematic exploration? I ask because it seems that there's at least one movie a year that crops up on the independent scene that wants to tackle this topic and it's never as clean as it could be. I...

The Decade Decathlon Finale: Winners and Losers of the decade

After well over a year of writing and after weeks of research, days of watching movies, and hours upon hours of writing these pieces, the Decade Decathlon has finally reached its conclusion. It's been an absolutely crazy ride and when I ini...

AMC claims they will no longer screen Universal movies

Like a character from Telltale's The Walking Dead, AMC decided to act today on the recent success of Trolls: World Tour going straight to VOD by declaring that all future Universal movies will no longer be screened at AMC Theaters effective...

Tribeca Review: Ainu Mosir

Have you ever felt like an outsider within your own community? While I'm sure that many people may have experienced this isolation in one form or another (whether it be from personal opinions to political differences), it's an entirely diff...

Disney reshuffles MCU release dates AGAIN

Another day, another report about movie delays. Out of all of the major Hollywood studios, Disney's slate of releases has been impacted the most by the coronavirus. When they plan their releases years in advance, any slight alteration can h...

Review: The Willoughbys

I have a confession to make. For years, I've always thought lesser of straight to Netflix movies. It's completely irrational, I know, but where most major releases had premieres in theaters and could be measured with metrics like box office...

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. So... this took a while to come out.  Wh...

Review: The Midnight Gospel

I'm no stranger to strangeness, but when I say that The Midnight Gospel is a bizarre piece of work, I mean it. Trying to describe exactly what The Midnight Gospel is isn't an easy task.  One third of it feels like an animation experime...

Review: Agent Toby Barks

It was only a matter of time before I had to cover something like Agent Toby Barks. I'm the resident dog movie reviewer on site, so of course when this movie came across my desk it was not a question of if I'll review it, but if I'll do it ...

Trolls World Tour is the most important movie of 2020

Hollywood is in a state of turmoil. Thanks to COVID-19 putting a damper on... well, everything really. No industry was hit quite as bad as the entertainment industry. Carefully curated plans were destroyed, prime release windows will b...

David Bruckner to direct the Hellraiser reboot

Am I wrong to say that Hellraiser is a lot like Terminator? Not in terms of genre or tone of course, but how people tend to agree that the first two movies are cinematic classics and everything after that ranges from being okay to god awful...

Only 300,000 people downloaded Quibi on launch day

I, like most Americans, probably heard about Quibi during this year's Super Bowl. With several commercials talking about Quibi as a new video platform, instead of getting me interested in the platform, I was more confused by it. Not simply ...

The top Post-2010 anime to binge

I think it's pretty easy to see by now that I love anime. In the past three months I think I've talked about and reviewed more anime features than Hollywood features, which totally has nothing to do with the fact that every movie is being d...

Binge all of Samurai Jack for free on Adult Swim

Since we all have a ton of free tome on our hands now, it seems like the perfect time to watch some TV or movies that have been on your backlog for years! I know that I've been going through a ton of anime and series like Killing Eve during...

Ranking the Resident Evil movies from bad to worst

Seeing as how most of the world is in a self-imposed isolation, or social distancing as we're now calling it, not a whole lot is happening in the film industry. The world and culture in general have just kind of been put on pause while we p...

Of course no one saw anything this weekend

Well this week has been a roller coaster of emotions, hasn't it? What started off last week as a problem that very few of us believed we were going to deal with has progressed to people rightfully instituting a self-quarantine, social dista...

Review: Castlevania (Season 3)

I don't think I'm stepping out of bounds when I say that Castlevania, despite its flaws, is probably my favorite adaptation of any video game franchise in film or television. Sonic had a pretty fine debut and I will always have a soft ...

Harley Quinn is back in the first trailer for Season 2

Harley Quinn was one of my most anticipated shows following its release back in November of last year and it hasn't disappointed me. With DC Universe still chugging along against all odds, at least their original programming continues...

Onward is making me feel nothing but I'm not surprised

Did you know that Onward, the latest Pixar movie, comes out in two days? It doesn't seem real to me that it's releasing so soon, mostly because I genuinely forgot that it existed. It wasn't until I looked at this week's upcoming releases th...
