Dracula Meets the 'Sherlock' Format | 'Dracula' BBC/Netflix Show Review

When Steven Moffat and Mark Gatiss get together, they often make the best television you’ll ever see.  I’ve followed the pair of creatives, first through “Doctor Who”, then through “Sherlock,” so I’m properly tempered to Moffat, his partnership with Gatiss, and what you can reasonably expect from them. Moffat in particular is great at writing likeable characters and putting them in heart wrenching situations, playing with your … Continue reading Dracula Meets the 'Sherlock' Format | 'Dracula' BBC/Netflix Show Review

Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx Doing What They Do Best | ‘Just Mercy’ Movie Review

Michael B. Jordan and Jamie Foxx are great actors, and it should come as a surprise to no one that they deliver masterful performances in Director Destin Daniel Cretton’s “Just Mercy.” Based on a book of the same name by real-life attorney Bryan Stevenson, the film follows his journey to Monroeville, Ala., where he sets up the nonprofit Equal Justice Initiative, which he receives federal … Continue reading Michael B.

“The Rise of Skywalker” has come and gone, and with it, the book closes on the nine episode Skywalker saga of Star Wars movies, broadly shaping the franchise for better or for worse.

Another Rollercoaster Season | 'You' Season 2 Netflix Series Review

After watching the unfocused mess that was “The Rise of Skywalker,” Netflix’s second season of “You” picked me up and served as an excellent foil. You’s biggest strength is its frenetic, tightly-focused storytelling that leads the viewer down twists and turns in a way that you just have to see what’s going to happen next. It’s a perfect-bingworthy show, one that you can’t just watch … Continue reading Another Rollercoaster Season | 'You' Season 2 Netflix Series Review

Not Another Happy Landing | 'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker' Movie Review

There’s a lot packed into “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker”, so much so that I didn’t feel comfortable giving my usual week one hot take on it; thus my review for it comes out now. I grew up with the prequel trilogy, so Star Wars was all around me. Some might call it the golden age of Star Wars, as while Episodes I through … Continue reading Not Another Happy Landing | 'Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker' Movie Review

Adam Driver is at it Again | 'The Report' Amazon Prime Video Movie Review

Adam Driver has had a great year, starring in such films as “Marriage Story”, “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker” and “The Report.” It wasn’t until he starred in last year’s “BlacKkKlansmen” that I truly saw what he was capable on screen, a performance that gave him an academy award nomination and proved that he has a bright future ahead of him after the Star … Continue reading Adam Driver is at it Again | 'The Report' Amazon Prime Video Movie Review

Netflix Putting Their Money Where Their Mouth Is | 'Marriage Story' Netflix Movie Review

Netflix is king of the streaming game because they are willing to fund projects like “The Irishman” and “Marriage Story.” These films feature A-list actors and are directed by visionary directors in Martin Scorcese and Noah Baumbach, and most certainly would not have been made or have gotten enough anywhere near enough love they deserve in a theater setting.  Hollywood films these days are mostly loud … Continue reading Netflix Putting Their Money Where Their Mouth Is | 'Marriage Story' Netflix Movie Review

So Far, So Good | 'Apple Knight' Mobile/PC Game Review

I’m typically not a fan of early-access type mobile and PC games, as more often than not, the format is used to peddle broken and incomplete games, passing them off as complete products.  Limitless LLC’s action platformer “Apple Knight” is arguably still in that state, but the levels it does offer are tightly-crafted experiences reminiscent of good Super Nintendo levels rather than something that is unfit for consumers.  … Continue reading So Far, So Good | 'Apple Knight' Mobile/PC Game Review
