Someone Else’s Fantasy | “Fantasy Island” Movie Review

I want to open this review by saying how appreciative of Blumhouse, coming from someone who lived through a long period of time when the horror genre was largely dead. While not all of their films are big hits, and this year’s “Fantasy Island” is no exception, the horror genre deserves to live, and it seems like Blumhouse has found a way to make producing them … Continue reading Someone Else’s Fantasy | “Fantasy Island” Movie Review

“Winner Takes It All” | “Better Call Saul” Season 4 TV Show Review & Recap

In preparation for the upcoming season 5 of “Better Call Saul”, I binged season 4, courtesy of Netflix. To series producer Vince Gilligan: Please never stop making TV. Whatever he makes, I always eat right up, especially if it’s a project in the “Breaking Bad” universe. Season 4 follows disbarred lawyer Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk), immediately following the death of his brother, esteemed attorney Charles … Continue reading “Winner Takes It All” | “Better Call Saul” Season 4 TV Show Review & Recap

Another Jumanji Review | 2018 “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” YouTube Video Review

This is InReview’s first video review! Finally released after its initial production in early 2018. A little backstory: In early 2018, I filmed two video reviews, and I completed editing on this one. I was using a dying laptop and hadn’t edited a video in years, so there was a bit of a learning curve. But I wanted the video to look perfect, so I … Continue reading Another Jumanji Review | 2018 “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” YouTube Video Review

A Fun Improvement | “Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey” Movie Review

“Suicide Squad” is a dumb fun movie. Whenever it’s on TV, I’ll tune into it; but I’ll still poke fun at the pacing flaws and other nitpicks/grievances. But one of the best things about the movie was the performances that Will Smith and Margot Robbie gave. And with the DCEU’s collapse, I was curious to see how a movie with Harley Quinn playing a more … Continue reading A Fun Improvement | “Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey” Movie Review

Not That Bad, Despite Its Razzie | “Cocktail” 1988 Movie Review

Oscar season is upon. And while many people have raised criticisms about Greta Gerwig and Jennifer Lopez (which I agree with), I was more drawn to the inverse and curious about the Razzies. I like to give a look at the worst Hollywood has given us and appreciated the YouTube channel, Cinematic Excrement, which looks at 1988’s “Cocktail” and compared it to other Razzie nominees … Continue reading Not That Bad, Despite Its Razzie | “Cocktail” 1988 Movie Review

Great Direction, But Not Perfect | “The Mandalorian” Season 1 Disney Plus Show Review

My girlfriend and I caved and got Disney Plus. For a week, through its free trial. After the initial novelty of being able to see all the Star Wars films in the same spot, as well as all the classic Disney Channel shows wore off, I watched “The Mandalorian” and a few episodes of “The World According to Jeff Goldblum,” and then we cancelled the … Continue reading Great Direction, But Not Perfect | “The Mandalorian” Season 1 Disney Plus Show Review

Sabrina Part 3: The Rise of Skywalker | “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Part 3” Netflix Series Review

Don’t you love it when shows fall apart? Well, Netflix’s live action “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina” has officially reached that point. It was good while it lasted, but like so many other franchises (I’m looking at you, Star Wars), the show’s mythos has grown so large that it is choking itself to death. We’re now in the territory of where the show’s writers have … Continue reading Sabrina Part 3: The Rise of Skywalker | “The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina: Part 3” Netflix Series Review

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
