Doctor Who Recap (Season 12, Episode 10)

Doctor Who Recap (Season 12, Episode 9)

Doctor Who Recap (Season 12, Episode 8)

Doctor Who Recap (Season 12, Episode 3)

This week Doctor Who saw our heroes on vacation on the planet known as Orphan 55. Let’s be honest, after last week, the Doctor really needed a holiday. Of course, as with nearly all of the Doctor’s relaxation time...

Review: Underwater

When I first caught a trailer for Underwater, the Kristen Stewart-led creature-feature set amidst the murky depths of the Mariana Trench, I made the out-loud joke to my friends and fellow theater-goers "Is that really the title?" I got a la...

Alex Garland's Devs looks to give us a menacing Nick Offerman

It might not be the most obvious opinion, but I consider Alex Garland a househould name. Giving us one of the best films of 2015 with Ex Machina and then the best film of 2018 with his Jeff VanderMeer adaptation Annihilation, Garland has p...

Recap: Doctor Who (Season 12, Episode 2)

Last week, we were left with the Doctor in a precarious position. She was trapped in a mysterious place. Meanwhile, her companions were in a plane moving rapidly towards the ground (and without a cockpit, to boot). This week, the Doctor is ...

Recap: The Mandalorian Season 1, Episode 8 - The Redemption

When looking at the individual episodes of a television show, especially with a property so carefully-managed like Star Wars, it's hard to find any sort of distinct authorship in the filmmaking of any of them. So imagine my surprise when I ...

The DEFINITIVE ranking of every Star Wars film

Recap: The Mandalorian Season 1, Episode 6 - The Prisoner

One of the clear strengths of The Mandalorian, especially in the earlier episodes, is that the eponymous character is not perfect—far from it. He trips, falls down, gets shot, gets covered in mud, and so on. We love an underdog. But i...

Recap: The Mandalorian Season 1, Episode 5 - The Gunslinger

Generally, I abhor the term "filler" when it comes to television. Even when an episode doesn't make too many strides in long-term plot development, I usually feel like I get something out of the experience—perhaps it fleshes out a cha...
