The Story Monster Podcast – Episode 07, The Suicide Squad (2021) Review feat. PHILmoore

This movie was one hell of a ride and not in a good way. I don't know what the writers and James Gunn are smoking, but I need them to stop....and share. The Suicide Squad is a diet reboot of its predecessor from 2016. Oh how I tried to forget that one. Although the story…

The Story Monster Podcast – Episode 04, Loki (2021-) Review

The show centers on the God of Mischief, Loki (played by Tom Hiddleston). He was last seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe during Endgame. The Avengers traveled to the past and inadvertently allowed him to escape via time travel. Soon after he's arrested by a shady organization called the TVA. It's a good show full…

The Tomorrow War (2021) Review

My expectations were low for this movie. I'm a Chris Pratt fan and watched it off his star power alone. I saw no trailers and went in blind. After viewing it this Fourth of July weekend, I can say The Tomorrow War is worth seeing. It is a pleasant surprise with heart, humor, and a…

Castlevania Season 4 (2021) Review

For the past four years, Castlevania has inspired me. The animation in the show is of the highest caliber. Even when my eyes were tired, I couldn't turn off the TV. That is how spectacular the storytelling is. It has no equal or rival to compare, its simply in a class of its own. The…

The Promised Neverland (2019) Review

My best friend recommended I watch this show. After the finale last night, I was highly upset with him. The Promised Neverland is good as grandma's cooking. The story revolves around orphaned children raised to be "adopted" once they reach a certain age. It is an emotional rollercoaster from start to finish. Emma, Norman, and…

Helstrom (2020) Review

We're keeping with the demonic possession theme. This time we're exploring a Marvel property in the mature Hulu universe. Helstrom is rated-R and all about that violence. It's a breath of fresh air to see the more occult characters. Daimon and Ana Helstrom are siblings and the offpsring of an extremely powerful entity. One that…

Jupiter’s Legacy (2021-) Review

Netflix has been dropping fire lately! It is with a heavy heart, that I say this is booty. Jupiter's Legacy lacks character development and rushes through the story like they're on borrowed time. You don't get to learn much about anyone other than Sheldon (Josh Duhamel) and his brother Walter (Ben Daniels). Everyone else is…

Zack Snyder’s Justice League (2021) Review

Warner Media knew my birthday was March 18th and released the Snyder Cut as a gift. OK, that's a load of bullshit but a man can dream. Seriously though, this film is a cinematic milestone for both fans and Warner Bros. It is a far cry from it's predecessor from 2017 simply titled Justice League.…
