The Mandalorian S01E07

And we're back with another review of The Mandalorian. This episode is titled, The Reckoning. It is also by far one of the best in the series. Stakes are higher than they've ever been. Our hero, Mando, has to recruit allies to assist him with a job. Immediately the characters are thrown into chaotic situations.…

The Mandalorian S01E06

YES!!! Now this is what I signed up for. Chapter 6, titled The Prisoner is a return to form. We learn some additional information on Mando's past. The episode starts with Mando receiving a job to rescue a prisoner, no questions asked. To accompany him are some extremely shady characters that he once knew. They…

The Mandalorian S01E05

When I saw the latest chapter was titled Gunslinger I got excited. Well, my expectations were completely subverted. Although this episode was not warm & fuzzy like the previous one, it fell a bit flat. Started off strong then lost its steam 15 minutes in. I hope something changes soon because the momentum has decreased for…

The Mandalorian S01E04

This episode rubbed me the wrong way. Sanctuary takes the show in a different direction thematically. Placing Mando in a village straight out of a Disney princess story. Granted there's still some run & gun scenes but it doesn't advance the story further. If anything I would describe it as a filler episode. Nothing was…

Queen & Slim (2019) Review

Lena Waithe and James Frey are now two of my favorite writers! When I first got wind of this project, I assumed it was merely a Bonnie & Clyde (1967) ripoff. I was sorely mistaken. Queen & Slim is a thought provoking story of a first-date gone wrong. Don't let the simplicity of that premise fool…

The Mandalorian S01E03

As a somewhat casual Star Wars fan, I'm not very familiar with the culture of the Mandalorians. This one peels back the layers a little providing more insight. Mando as well as others reveal a bit in dialogue every episode. Lines like, "I'm Mandalorian, weapons are my religion" cause me to question what a Mandalorian…

Agenda Driven Cinema

I debated whether or not to share my thoughts on this issue. However, after the latest box office bomb, Charlie’s Angels, I could no longer hold my tongue. The people have a right to know! Hollywood is sick y’all, like for real. The illness plaguing the industry right now is sociopolitics. Heavy-handed, so-called feminist, wanna-be-woke,…

The Mandalorian S01E02 Review

Momentum remains strong with this follow-up episode. Some familiar "faces" return from a certain desert planet. It made me feel a bit nostalgic especially after revisiting the prequels recently. The Mandalorian or Mando, as they refer to him in the show, continues his mission to deliver the bounty. I'm sure that said bounty is going…

The Mandalorian (2019) Review & Disney+ Reaction

You've probably heard all the hype about Disney+. The House of Mouse released an app with a load of content from it's hidden vault on the moon. However, most of the hype is surrounding it's original content. One of them based in the Star Wars universe, The Mandalorian. It's worth the price of admission alone.…

Black and Blue (2019) Review

This film should have went to Netflix. It didn't suck by any means, I just don't think the writing was strong enough to warrant a theatrical release. Black and Blue is basically a diet version of Training Day. It has the star power but none of the execution. There are some redeeming qualities though. Naomie Harris…
