Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022) Review

Black Panther: Wakanda Forever is the topic of much discourse among fans. Discussions about representation, gender bias, and the unsavory use of Chadwick Boseman’s death as a plot device. Some of these claims have merit, while others are driven by baseless conspiracy theories such as the emasculation of black men. Black Panther: Wakanda Forever pulls no punches in addressing the death of King T’Challa, thus confirming speculation of … Continue reading Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022) Review

Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie (2022)

Watching anime is exhausting when juggling multiple shows. The number of entertaining shows increases daily. In the early 2000s, a handful of programs dominated pop culture. Millennials thought of anime as another cartoon with little to no knowledge of its origin or language until reaching maturity. Since then, streaming services continue to fight for exclusive licenses to as many manga-based properties as possible. One of … Continue reading Jujutsu Kaisen 0: The Movie (2022)

Wyrmwood: Apocalypse (2021) Review

Wyrmwood: Apocalypse delivers hard-hitting action in a merciless dystopian wasteland overrun with zombies. A few distinct characteristics set the zombies apart from their traditional counterparts.

Set in Australia, the world is filled with hidden research facilities where scientists are “working on a … Continue reading Wyrmwood: Apocalypse (2021) Review

Terrifier 2 (2022) Review

Terrifier 2 is the most disgusting film to date. The creator, Damien Leone, pushes the boundaries of discomfort and violence in horror. Art the Clown (David Howard Thornton) earns his place as the slasher icon of this generation. He is a sadistic serial killer who fixates on random victims, stalking them before murdering them in the most barbaric way possible. Oh no, it gets worse. Art … Continue reading Terrifier 2 (2022) Review

Werewolf By Night (2022) Review

Werewolf by Night is an excellent addition to the Disney Plus library. It opens the door for future one-hour specials from the streaming giant. This new approach expands the genre of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), both in visual and theme. It introduces obscure characters from the Marvel catalogue like Elsa Bloodstone (Laura Donnelly), Jack Russell (Gael García Bernal), and Man-Thing (Carey Jones). The story is … Continue reading Werewolf By Night (2022) Review

The Night House (2020) Review

Easily, one of the most boring films of 2022. Directed by David Bruckner, The Night House is a mystery, thriller which follows a recent widow Beth (Rebecca Hall) as she uncovers dark secrets about her husband. Thriller is the wrong word as little to none is present. Predictable jump scares make it less enjoyable along with the abstract form of storytelling. Surprised this project got the green … Continue reading The Night House (2020) Review

A Growing Boy

“Something bad is happening upstairs.” Jordan declared as he gawked at the ceiling of his two-bedroom apartment. “Don’t overthink it. You remember what the building manager said, her son is special.” Frankie emphasized, imitating the tender voice of the office manager. “Nah, fuck that, something is leaking. Look, it’s brown. If it was water, the stain would be beige or yellow.” Jordan said, waving his … Continue reading A Growing Boy

The Curse of Bridge Hollow (2022) Review

Didn’t expect to have such a good time watching this. Marlon Wayans is no doubt an amazing comedian, but his Netflix projects tend to be a toss-up. The Curse of Bridge Hollow is funny, family friendly, and has a good dose of action. Starring Marlon Wayans, Priah Ferguson, and Kelly Rowland. The film is a call back to Disney original movies released during Halloween in … Continue reading The Curse of Bridge Hollow (2022) Review
