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

8-Bit Christmas (2021) Review

The Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) is a pioneer in the game industry. As a child, my mother gifted me a Super NES. It helped shape who I am today. I consider myself a Nintendo fanboy and have six of their consoles in my home. My fiancée and I happened upon the trailer while on HBO Max. We were hyped to see the laugh fest it … Continue reading 8-Bit Christmas (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 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

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

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
