Covering Its Bases | “Persona 5 Royal” Base Game Review

“Persona 5 Royal” came out a little less than a month ago. Its predecessor, “Persona 5”, came out a few years ago.

There will be a post about the differences between the two games, but it would be best to just establish a foothold on the game as a whole first, so let’s do exactly that.

A Crass, Shlocky McG Comedy | “The Babysitter” 2017 Netflix Movie Review

I would like to start out this review by saying I’m a huge “Supernatural” fan, a show about two brothers hunting monsters produced by McG that, while mostly serious, has its fair share of comedic moments — there are even a few parody episodes that are straight-up comedies. McG’s 2017 Netflix horror-comedy “The Babysitter” is like one of those episodes, but made into a full-length … Continue reading A Crass, Shlocky McG Comedy | “The Babysitter” 2017 Netflix Movie Review

Give Them a Budget | “Don’t Let Them In” (2020) Low-Budget Movie Review

I’ve been watching a lot of awful horror films on Hulu recently. It’s gotten to the point where I’m almost horror-ed out, as it’s beyond me why multimillion dollar productions can’t for the life of them get the basics of filmmaking 101 down (I’m looking at you, “Into the Dark: Down” and “Pet Sematary” remake), So when I was given a screener for the ultra-low budget British … Continue reading Give Them a Budget | “Don’t Let Them In” (2020) Low-Budget Movie Review

Another Video From the Vault | “Insidious: The Last Key” 2018 YouTube Video Review

This year, I committed to uploading at least one video per month to InReview’s YouTube channel. We had a good start in February, but those plans crashed and burned down in March, as the coronavirus greatly upheaved everyone’s lives, myself included. With that being said, in April I finally had the time to edit this very raw review of “Insidious: The Last Key”, originally recorded … Continue reading Another Video From the Vault | “Insidious: The Last Key” 2018 YouTube Video Review

Reignite the “Legend of Spyro” Trilogy | Column from the Editor

I’ve finally had the time to enjoy Toys for Bob’s “Spyro: Reignited Trilogy” and I absolutely love it. My very first gaming console was the original PlayStation, and some of my earliest gaming memories are from the first three Sypro games, and it’s just great to see them remastered and accessible on modern home consoles. Please do the “Legend of Spyro” trilogy next. For those … Continue reading Reignite the “Legend of Spyro” Trilogy | Column from the Editor

“Star Wars: Episode X”; An Extremely Unlikely Fan Theory | Column from the Editor

We’re four months removed from “Star Wars: Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker” and yeah, Star Wars is still a flaming mess. Rather than provide a cohesive conclusion to all nine episodes, Lucasfilm and its producers decided to pander to fans by concocting a nostalgia-filled non-ending that leaves the Star Wars universe much more poorer off than when the sequel trilogy started. There will be … Continue reading “Star Wars: Episode X”; An Extremely Unlikely Fan Theory | Column from the Editor

Colorful and Fresh | “Into the Dark: Midnight Kiss” 2019 Hulu Anthology Film Review

The anthology format is nothing new to television, with perhaps the most famous example being the original “The Twilight Zone”, which Netflix’s “Black Mirror” closely resembles in a modern setting. The format for these series are usually very simple: Tell the best story you can in 30 minutes to an hour, without having to rely on any prior continuity. Hulu’s “Into the Dark” horror series, … Continue reading Colorful and Fresh | “Into the Dark: Midnight Kiss” 2019 Hulu Anthology Film Review

Because 7 Episodes Wasn’t Enough | “The Tiger King and I” “The Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness” Episode 8 Review

Netflix stumbled upon the deep well that is Tiger King mania with the release of “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness” docuseries that has taken over the internet and popular culture, and even a global pandemic couldn’t stop them from delivering more content to viewers. Hence we get “The Tiger King and I,” an extra eighth episode of the series that dropped today. Branded as … Continue reading Because 7 Episodes Wasn’t Enough | “The Tiger King and I” “The Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness” Episode 8 Review

Low-Quality Fun | “Coffee and Kareem” Netflix Movie Review

Not every film needs to be a 10/10, 5-star quality film for it to be an enjoyable watch. Netflix’s “Coffee and Kareem” is a perfect example of this.  The film stars Ed Helms as a hapless, bumbling cop named James Coffee who stumbles upon a drug-smuggling scheme organized in part by rapper-turned-criminal Orlando Johnson (RonReaco Lee) when he has to pick up his girlfriend’s son, … Continue reading Low-Quality Fun | “Coffee and Kareem” Netflix Movie Review

“Tiger King” Dropped At The Perfect Time | Column from the Editor

While we’re all stuck at home, Netflix’s “Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness” has absolutely dominated online discourse, because of the overall strangeness of the docuseries’ subject matter (Joe Exotic, the G.W. Zoo in Wynnewood, Okla., and his feud with Big Cat Rescue CEO Carole Baskin), and because many of us just need an entertaining distraction in these trying times.  “Tiger King” certainly delivers on that … Continue reading “Tiger King” Dropped At The Perfect Time | Column from the Editor
