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.

Dying Light’s little brother | “Days Gone” PS4 Game Review

The heavily criticized, open world zombie survival game “Days Gone” hit the shelves back in April 2019. It has been looked at rather negatively by popular video game critics, receiving a 5/10 from Gamespot, a 6.5/10 score from IGN and a 7.1/10 from Meta Critic. The game received a lot of hype over the course of its lengthy development timeline, and if you were to believe these scores, you might say it was all for naught.

‘Binding of Isaac meets Hearthstone’ | 'Slay the Spire' Video Game Review

Intro: If you’ve read Stephen King’s “Dark Tower” book series (or seen the horrible movie) then you already know the general concept of a lone hero having to travel towards the top of a mysterious tower. Well in “Slay the Spire” you do just that, over and over again.

A Diamond in the Rough | 'Uncut Gems' Movie Review

Adam Sandler’s career is the epitome of the phrase “love it or hate it.” On the one hand, this was a guy went from SNL to his claim to fame with movies like “Happy Gilmore”, “Billy Madison”, and “Big Daddy”. On the other hand, he’s been in garbage like “I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry”, “Jack and Jill”, and “Pixels”. With a spotty record … Continue reading A Diamond in the Rough | 'Uncut Gems' Movie Review

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

Best and Worst Movies of 2019, Ranked | Column from the Critic

2019 has been an interesting year for cinema. We said hello to Tarantino again, and bid adieu to the Infinity Saga. This was a year where once-panned actors shined bright. When compared to the other critics on the site, I don’t do rankings with my reviews. That was just one of the things that I learned when I started being a critic. So, with the … Continue reading Best and Worst Movies of 2019, Ranked | Column from the Critic
