Shadow & Bone (2021-) Review

I love this series! Shadow & Bone is an amazing tale told in eight episodes. It's about a giant magical border made of darkness, that divides a country. Factions compete for power and territory until an army grunt, Alina Starkov, discovers her ability to create light. This shifts the political landscape, as many believe she…

Thunder Force (2021) Review

Ben Falcone needs to stop directing. Period. Thunder Force is a cute parody of the superhero genre. However, it's riddled with terrible dialogue, enough cheesiness to clog an artery, and poor world building. Emily Stanton (Octavia Spencer) was not relatable whatsoever. She was setup to be a wealthy genius inventor, but had poor security, and…

Shin Godzilla (2016) Review

This is the best Godzilla movie I've ever seen. Period. It's a return to form for the franchise. The titan was presented in a surprising and unconventional way. Instead of having giant reptilian scales, the exterior of the creature is rocky and volcanic. It was very alien and reminded me of John Carpenter's The Thing…

Invincible (2021-) Review

I think the last animated property to make me cry was Pixar's Up. Well that's no longer the case. Invincible, based on the books by Image Comics, is a galvanizing story! One that will keep you wanting more but weary of the outcome. I can't see this being adapted to live action and having the…

The Falcon & Winter Soldier (2021) Episode 6

The finale has arrived along with Sam's debut as Captain America. After a public execution and shield shaming from Bucky, he's taken on the mantle. I have to say this episode wasn't very entertaining to me. The story was predictable, especially with the identity of The Powerbroker. This episode mostly served as a launch vehicle…

Mortal Kombat (2021) Review

Oh my gaawt!!! This movie brought me so much joy. I am impressed with what the writers were able to do with the story. It was very grounded for the subject matter it was adapting. Gods, demons, and super powered beings. After watching this I am hyped for a sequel. Sub-Zero (Joe Taslim) was the…

Mortal Kombat: Annihilation (1997) Review

Look at this man face in the thumbnail. Don't he look stupid? I don't know why the ninjas in this movie have such humongous face mask. Must be difficult to walk around with a dumbbell attached to your jaw. That's how I felt watching this dumpster fire of a sequel to Mortal Kombat. I'm sure…

Mortal Kombat (1995) Review

If you're thirty or older, chances are you've played or heard of this game. Parents were outraged when it was released, due to its extreme violence and gore. They tried to ban it but The Elder Gods had other plans. Mortal Kombat is a historical landmark in 90s cinema. Starring Christopher Lambert, Robin Shou, Linden…

The Falcon & Winter Soldier – Episode 5

After the episode from last week, I was nervous going into this one. Johnny Walker trippin' off that super serum and reeling from the death of his partner Battle Star (Clé Bennett). Clearly this dude got PTSD and need help. That is what Sam and Bucky tried to do before the paranoia kicked in. Johnny…
