Review: Shaft

  Watch Video Do you know how refreshing it is to say that there's a new Shaft movie? While I never grew up watching the original Richard Roundtree trilogy of films, or the short-lived miniseries, I always knew just how cool, suave, a...   read

  Watch Video I wasn't expecting seeing a TV show be announced during Ubisoft's E3 press conference, but stranger things have happened. During Ubisoft's presser, Rob McElhenney of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia fame took the stage of&n...   read

Does anyone know what's happening at DC Universe? No seriously, does anyone know what is going on with its service, because as an outsider looking in, everything is on fire and people are panicking like there's no tomorrow. L...   read

  Watch Video It's been a long time since we've last heard about Wonder Woman 1984, hasn't it? Originally slated for November of this year, it was eventually pushed back for a June 2020 release date, leaving a big Patty Jenkins shaped hole...   read

For all of you Dragon Ball Z fans out there, you may be wondering exactly when Dragon Ball Super would be continuing. Earlier this year we had the superb Dragon Ball Super: Broly rock everyone's socks off, but there was still...   read

In case it was hard to tell, I love animation. I love all kinds of animation, from hand drawn to CGI, from claymation to pain staiking oil paintings, from classic Fleisher era to modern Disney, for kids or for adults, if you ...   read

Review: Rocketman

  Watch Video Hey, did you think Bohemian Rhapsody kinda sucked and wasn't authentic about the artist it was trying to portray? Good, this is that done right.   read

  Watch Video Sylvester Stallone has been on a kick recently of tackling his old, iconic roles in new and interesting ways. I never realized I wanted to see a Rocky movie where Rocky became Mickey, but that's exactly what Creed delivered ...   read

  Watch Video When I covered Made in Abyss: Journey's Dawn back in March, I have to admit that I was a little bit disappointed afterwards. The movie itself is still pretty good, but I remembered the series being so much better than wh...   read

  Watch Video Now that Game of Thrones is over, it seems like HBO is throwing us new trailers every other day to keep people subscribed to them now that the epic fantasy drama has ended. First we had Watchmen debut its trailer while ...   read

  Watch Video Four dead dogs.  Over the course of an hour and a half, there are four on screen dog deaths. One dies from injection, one gets in a car accident, one dies in its sleep, and the last just wanders off into the woods, fully...   read

So that Detective Pikachu movie was pretty good, wasn't it? It's not like I was expecting it to be a train-wreck or anything, but you can never be too sure with video game adaptations. Even when they're decent, like that Sile...   read

It's been ages since we've last heard about Nickelodeon's upcoming slate of made-for-TV animated movies. We've known since 2016 that Nickelodeon planned on reviving Rocko's Modern Life for a movie and we've known since 2...   read

Since it's been well over a week since Avengers: Endgame came out, I think it's time for us to have a serious discussion and just what exactly the MCU's future is going to look like. Because of this, there will be major ...   read

  Watch Video Out of all of the movies I planned on covering for the Tribeca Film Festival, A Day in the Life of America was by far one of the most ambitious films that could have gone completely haywire. This documentary has a striki...   read

I’ve been sitting on this review all week because I didn’t really know how to approach it. Georgetown was one of my most anticipated movies of the Tribeca Film Festival, but even after seeing it over a week ago, I...   read

I feel like cops in media get a bad rap. Not because I think all cops are shown as being evil or corrupt, but because most cop shows or movies don’t really showcase what life is actually like as a cop. When people think...   read

The power of documentaries, in my opinion, is the ability to provide audiences with an honest examination of a topic. Sometimes viewers may be aware of the subject matter being discussed in a documentary, but most of the time...   read

Tribeca Review: Bliss

It’s been ages since I’ve seen something as viscerally thrilling as Bliss. Horror movies in recent years have shifted away from gore and gallons of blood to psychological and more intimate fare, but you can only b...   read

  Watch Video With all thing's considered, I don't think the first trailer for Sonic the Hedgehog could have ever been good. The character's reputation has been driven through the mud in recent years, so even if the trailer turned out to ...   read

Tribeca Review: Aamis

Before going in to see Aamis, I tried to explain what this movie was about to Hubert while I was eating a large stack of pancakes. I said that it was a love movie about two people that bond over meat in an Indian society and ...   read

Imagine, if you will, a sleepy little fishing town in Maine. Imagine seeing the ocean, calm and serene, with a few ships bobbing in the water like toy boats. Then we pan over to the dock where a stocky fisherman starts leadin...   read
