Day Shift (2022) Review

Netflix produces a handful of poor-quality films. Day Shift is a welcome exception to the trend. Starring Jamie Foxx as Bud Jablonski, a loving father who works for a group of covert vampire hunters. This is an action comedy, so don’t expect logical decisions or realistic dialogue. The movie is jampacked with ultraviolent fight scenes. It is balanced by the humor between Bud and his partner Seth … Continue reading Day Shift (2022) Review

Bold golden letters in an elegant metallic font spell out the title, "Tales of Novia."

Clad in blue and black combat suit. Hotshot flies through the air, eyes glowing yellow with power.

Hotshot #2: A Hero’s Welcome – Part 2

The cover of this comic tells you everything you need to know. Hotshot suffers a severe beatdown from a behemoth of a man known as The Void. I don’t know who this guy is or why he’s obsessed with darkness and “Extinguishing the light.” What I am certain about, is his ability to throw hands and everything but the kitchen sink. There’s a lot of … Continue reading Hotshot #2: A Hero’s Welcome – Part 2

Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) Review

Whoever made the trailer for this did a great job. It really intrigued me with the espionage vibes. Who can say no to Jude Law and Johnny Depp in the same movie? Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald put the actual beasts on the bench. This time around they focus on the political war between the enigmatic Grindelwald, who wants pure-blood wizards to control the world. I love how they expand … Continue reading Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald (2018) Review

Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) Review

When this movie released, I wasn’t happy. Such spin off properties are cheap cash-ins in my eyes. Nonetheless, my fiancée and I saw it in theaters. Maybe my predisposed attitude towards the film made the experience unpleasant. Fast forward to the year 2022, a year still wrought with the One-Nine. We at home on HBO Max and decide to give Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find … Continue reading Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016) Review

Shang Chi & The Legend of The Ten Rings

This movie is the reason I got Marvel fatigue. It’s not the quality but more so the formula. For years, the studio pumped out cookie cutter films. How many times can heroes fight carbon copies of themselves? Tired of color-coded CG fights where the villain is killed off. Shang Chi & The Legend of The Ten Rings is no different. There is no consistent tone. … Continue reading Shang Chi & The Legend of The Ten Rings

The Eternals (2021) Review

I don’t know why writers use terms like “immortal” when the characters die so easy. Marvel introduced yet another cosmic street gang that live for a long time and never age. It’s enough people in this movie for them to start their own football team. These alien beings were credited as shepherds of humanity throughout history. When old enemies arrived, they teamed up to defend … Continue reading The Eternals (2021) Review

A Haunted House (2013) Review

I haven’t seen slapstick like this since Scary Movie. Marlon Wayans is a writer and producer as well as the star. He played the role of Malcolm, who moved into a new home with his wife. A couple of days later, supernatural things started happening. It’s parody of movies like Paranormal Activity and The Exorcist. I hollered every five minutes at the bizarre humor in … Continue reading A Haunted House (2013) Review
