Why Not? #MakeSolo2Happen | Column from the Editor 

For some reason, #MakeSolor2Happen is trending on Twitter again.  Why?  I reviewed this film when it came out. In short, 2018’s “Solo: A Star Wars Story” didn’t have a chance. It had an over bloated budget while being a niche story in the “Star Wars” universe, it was coming off the heels of the greatly controversial “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” which came out 5 months … Continue reading Why Not? #MakeSolo2Happen | Column from the Editor

Very Much Alive | “Dead to Me” Season 2 Netflix Series Review

In preparation for this review, I re-watched “Dead to Me” Season 1, and little did I know, I forgot that I watched the entire thing. For me, “Dead to Me” came, went, and despite the fact that it ended on a cliffhanger, I didn’t necessarily need more of it.  However, I heard Season 2 was much better, and thus I had to catch up. And because … Continue reading Very Much Alive | “Dead to Me” Season 2 Netflix Series Review

In The Shadow Of Hollwood | “Tangerine” 2015 Movie Review

Great films have virtually no fat on them, with each scene and sequence leading into the next, progressing the plot, enriching the world of the film, or highlighting deep themes prevalent in the film. 2015’s “Tangerine” is one such great film.  I first heard of “Tangerine” via RedLetterMedia’s popular “Half in the Bag” web series, in which they compared it to 2017’s “The Florida Project”, … Continue reading In The Shadow Of Hollwood | “Tangerine” 2015 Movie Review

A Non-Review of “SCOOB!” | Column from the Editor

As an independent film critic, I get to pick and choose which new releases I review, which sometimes is also a choice of which films I choose to support financially. This often puts me in a situation where I support films that I greatly disagree with, but want to discuss.  This year’s “SCOOB!” is a film I do not support on principle. I might be … Continue reading A Non-Review of “SCOOB!” | Column from the Editor

Death By Algorithm | “Retro Bowl” Mobile Game Review

It’s not every day that you get a game that manages to undo all the good it has to offer. Unfortunately, New Star Games Ltd.’s “Retro Bowl” is one of those games.  I’m going to be upfront about this. I’m giving this game a 0/10, the first of its kind on this site. As a critic, I try to give at least partial credit where partial … Continue reading Death By Algorithm | “Retro Bowl” Mobile Game Review

Oddly Trumpian | “Joe” 1970 Cannon Movie Review

If you’re unfamiliar with Cannon Films, 1970’s “Joe” is a strange introduction. Cannon Films operated from 1967 to 1994, and made their name by extensively investing in the home video market, garnering the reputation of producing absolutely crazy but fun low to medium quality films. If you’ve seen RedLetterMedia’s “Best of the Worst” YouTube series, which focuses exclusively on direct-to-VHS films from yesteryear, you’ll know … Continue reading Oddly Trumpian | “Joe” 1970 Cannon Movie Review

The Price Of Militarization | “Waco” 2018 TV Miniseries Review

Every now and again, a series based on true events finds its way to Netflix, and it hits hard. Last year, one of the most notable biopic series was “When They See Us,” a heartbreaking miniseries on the Central Park Five, who were sent to prison as children in the 90s for a crime they did not commit. This year, we get “Waco,” a six-episode … Continue reading The Price Of Militarization | “Waco” 2018 TV Miniseries Review

Out Of This World | “Solar Opposites” Season 1 Hulu TV Series Review

Hulu’s “Solar Opposites”, which premiered yesterday, is not explicitly a “Rick and Morty” spinoff show, but it might as well be. The show follows a family of aliens who escaped their dying home planet with a Pupa (Sagan McMahan) that is meant to terraform an abandoned planet into a new home for them. Unfortunately, they crash-landed on an already overpopulated planet (Earth), and must learn … Continue reading Out Of This World | “Solar Opposites” Season 1 Hulu TV Series Review
