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

Nightbooks (2021) Review

Alex (Winslow Fegley) is a boy that loves to write scary stories. He is obsessed with all things supernatural. However, things get a little too real when he is kidnapped by an evil witch. Unlike traditional fairy tales tropes, Natacha (Krysten Ritter) is a young woman with horrifying powers that border on demonic. She has a thing for snatching up children and turning them into … Continue reading Nightbooks (2021) Review

Beware the Inanis

The vampire or upir is one of the most feared throughout history. However, there is one among them that is exceptionally odious. This demon is spawned from the most tragic of circumstances. It is called the Inanis, a Latin word for empty. They are called this because their appetite cannot be satiated, nor their thirst quenched. Unlike its kin, it is not born or turned … Continue reading Beware the Inanis

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

The Nevers (2021) Episode 6

This is not the same show I’ve been watching! Sunday, I perused the HBO menu carefully, thinking I’d made some kind of mistake. How the hell did we go from 1800s London to a future civil war involving aliens? The first 15 minutes was confusing. Scenes felt rushed and disjointed. Things slowed down when Stripe was having conversations with the nice army lady who shall … Continue reading The Nevers (2021) Episode 6

The Nevers (2021) Episode 5

If you’re not watching this show, start. The theme of “fear of the unknown” and “hate what you don’t understand” are not new. I’ve compared The Nevers to Marvel’s X-MEN before and for good reason. People with supernatural abilities are looked at as ungodly and are persecuted because of it. The Touched are no different. In this episode, we see those fears culminate into chaos … Continue reading The Nevers (2021) Episode 5

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 its predecessor from 2017 simply titled Justice League. This is worth the 4 HOUR run-time, I promise you. … Continue reading Zack Snyder’s Justice League (2021) Review

The Nevers (2021) Episode 4

The Touched grieved after losing one of their own. It was an especially sad affair for Inspector Mundi, who had a history with the departed. This man just cannot get a break, I wonder how long before he snaps. An unseen benefactor attempted to provoke the Orphanage into an act of aggression. Since their ranks have increased, the citizens of London have gotten more paranoid … Continue reading The Nevers (2021) Episode 4
