Back in the 90s, I reviewed a famous TV show

Warning this review will have some spoilers.  Netflix's original series "Bojack Horseman" is coming to an end. The series put out half of the sixth and final season on Oct. 25. This comedic, but dark comedy has triggered many of conversations involving drug addiction, alcohol addiction, parenthood, ...

“Fallout” in Space: “The Outer Worlds” Review

From the vibrant colors, beautiful foreign landscapes, the great expanse of space viewed from the cockpit of your ship; “The Outer Worlds” is absolutely breathtaking. From the moment the game loaded up on my computer and I saw the now iconic home screen, I was sold on the game. I was sold on the ...

Jesus is King, but Kanye is Meh

If I know anything about Kanye West at this point in my life, it’s that he is a great producer. And in “Jesus is King”, his latest effort released last Friday night, is an impeccably produced album with great beats. But at this point, this is merely Kanye’s baseline. When he raps, it is better ...

Falling Short of Expectations: El Camino Review

“El Camino”, directed by Vince Gilligan, is truly average in every sense of the word. There is not a single scene that sticks out to me as anything extraordinary. I’m not saying that there is anything inherently wrong with the movie either, and it definitely serves as a worthwhile epilogue to ...

No Laughing Matter: Joker Review

Horrifically beautiful, unimaginably uncomfortable, and all too real. These are just some phrases that come to mind when I think about my viewing experience for “Joker”, directed by Todd Phillips.  This movie is like nothing I have ever seen before from a comic book franchise. It truly sheds off ...

Film Review: "Avengers: Endgame" (NO SPOILERS)

Back in 2008, Marvel released both “IronMan” and “The Incredible Hulk”-- not knowing how much of an impact the movies would leave 11 years later. There are plenty of people out there who just see this as a film, but there are those who see the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a part of their life. ...

Film Review: Pet Sematary

Warning: this review contains spoilers. If the 1920’s were the Golden Age of Hollywood, we are currently living through the Rusted Age of Hollywood. Unnecessary reboots, lazy rewrites of classics and painful to watch rehashings of the same old storylines has made going to the movies seemingly pointless ...

Film Review: Shazam!

DC is hopping on superhero comedy train, and it’s heading to the “wizard” himself, Shazam!. We all know what DC is trying to do here, but let’s put down the comparison to Marvel for a second and think about it. With their two most prized characters out of the ring, DC is left with little to ...

Film Review: Dumbo Returns as Disney's Latest Live Action Flick

Dumbo has flown in as one of many live action Disney films that are set to come out this year, and Disney spared no expense. There are many who expected the movie to be just like the original, but surprisingly, there is a lot more human interaction than in the 1941 version. There are still many, many ...

Album Review: "Wasteland, Baby!"

As the old Elvis Costello quip goes, “You have 20 years to write your first album and six months to write your second.” This rush to get new music out often results in a second album that lacks the depth and musicianship of the first. While there was a five year gap between Hozier’s debut album ...

Film Review: Avengers: Infinity War

It’s been 10 years since Nick Fury met Tony Stark in a post-credits scene in 2008’s “Iron Man,” in which the doors into a much larger universe had begun to open. Now, after 10 years-worth of storytelling with the release of almost 20 different films, it can all culminate in the gargantuan movie ...

Movie Review: Tomb Raider

On March 16, the newest adaptation of the “Tomb Raider” story was released in theaters, and although the fast-paced action sequences were exciting to watch, the movie itself falls a little short of living up to the two video games published by Square Enix: the self titled reboot of the “Tomb Raider” ...

Movie Review: A Wrinkle In Time

When the original source material is considered to be unfilmable, it’s easy to see that director Ava Duvernay was gambling big on her attempt at a film adaptation of the beloved novel. But was it worth the risk? Well, yes and no. But one thing is certain: It’s the thought that counts. Based on ...
