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

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

Let The Franchise Go | ‘Frozen 2’ Movie Review

“Frozen” came out six years ago. Keep that in the back of your mind. We waited six years for this.  I feel bad for “Frozen 2.” I really do. Its predecessor was a decent film in its own right, elevated by lighting-in-a-bottle music numbers that both fit narratively in the film, while being legitimate pieces of art in their own right, winning the film two Grammys and two … Continue reading Let The Franchise Go | ‘Frozen 2’ Movie Review
