Jingle All The Way (1996) Review

He is the combination of 90s Sentai shows and Marvel’s Ironman. December is gone but I’m still in the holiday spirit. One Christmas film that stands the test of time is Jingle All The Way, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sinbad. The film has a special place in my heart and you don’t have to wait until next year to watch it. Howard (Schwarzenegger), a father … Continue reading Jingle All The Way (1996) Review

Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) Review

Before we get into the review, my apologies to the AMC employee that had to mop up the pool of nerd sweat I secreted. There was too much cinematic goodness to behold. Spider-Man: No Way Home is the best entry to date. It is the culmination of storytelling for the wise cracking web-slinger going back nearly 20 years. Underage viewers won’t appreciate the nostalgia this … Continue reading Spider-Man: No Way Home (2021) Review

Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2021) Review

The Ghostbusters franchise is one I hold in high regard. A ritual of my childhood revolved around viewing VHS tapes on repeat and stalking the TV guide for upcoming programs. To this day, I can’t tell you how many times I have seen the first two. Rumors of a third movie with the original cast floated around for over thirty years. I’m happy to say … Continue reading Ghostbusters: Afterlife (2021) Review

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 sucked, there are many laughs to be had. Harley Quinn … Continue reading The Story Monster Podcast – Episode 07, The Suicide Squad (2021) Review feat. PHILmoore

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 of doppelgangers and MCU callbacks. What I enjoyed most about … Continue reading The Story Monster Podcast – Episode 04: Loki (2021-) Review

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 voice talent really brought these characters to life with their … Continue reading Castlevania Season 4 (2021) Review

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 Ray are the main protagonists in this epic tale of … Continue reading The Promised Neverland (2019) Review
