Review: Once Upon a Time in Hollywood

Whether it's obvious or not, every single feature film that Quentin Tarantino has made is about, well, film. There is rarely a moment in his movies where the writer-director isn't projecting some of his knowledge as a pop culture buff and e...

Review: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 6 Episode 10 - "Leap"

Review: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 6 Episode 7 - "Toldja"

As disparate this season of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has been, and despite my being the only person in the fandom to feel disappointed by last week's episode, I'm overall digging what I see. Even though I couldn't tell you what this season is...
