Stephen King and The Dark Tower series hold a very special place in my heart. The series has an importance to me not dissimilar to how many people feel about Harry Potter. Needless to say, I’ve been wanting a Dark Tower movie for many years. I got hyped when Ron Howard...

I’m still baffled by the pace that continues to purvey My Hero Academia. At this rate I’ll have to mention this at least once per review. MHA managed to wrap up the rest of the conflict not just with Stain but all of the Noumu. The show expertly gives us moments with c...

My Hero Academia continues to raise the stakes.  After two episodes of training we are right back into the action as some of the students from UA begin to fight Stain, while local heroes deal with the attack of 3 Nomu that are ransacking the city.

From the get go Iida t...

Deku continues his training and in typical fashion, we see him pushing himself as hard as he can. We also get another glimpse at his intelligence as he spars with the ultra fast Gran Torino. Gran Torino is so impressed that he even believes Deku could become a real mon...

Deku begins his internship with his new mentor, Gran Torino a consistently baffling old man who teaches Deku lessons while weaving in and out of coherent thought. Whether or not this is a ruse remains unclear, however what does quickly become evident is that he is a fa...

Ever since I caught a glimpse of the costume designs and the terrible looking trailers, I had completely written Power Rangers off as a half-assed superhero cash grab. It could have easily capitalized on the superhero box office and been a terrible film, much like Batm...

Kong: Skull Island is a perfect example of taking a well-known property with what many consider a perfect and untouchable story, and making it your own. It’s as though the filmmaker thought, “if you can’t beat em’, make up your own rules.” In doing so, Kong: Skull Isla...

Looking for a great show to watch and brag about to all your friends, therefore making you superior to them in every way? Well, boy, do I have a show for you. Ajin is a unique show full of new and refreshing ideas that are presented in surprising ways.  It’s unfortunat...

Hungry for blood and guts but want to pass on the horror? Are you a fan of genre-bending surreal shows? If you answered yes to both of those questions, then Santa Clarita Diet is the show for you. It’s a fun fusion of iZombie and Desperate Housewives, with a splash of...

M. Night Shyamalan has had, to put it lightly, a tumultuous career.  He went from box office darling to pariah over the course of just a few years.  He took all the good will from The Sixth Sense, Unbreakable, and Signs, and absolutely obliterated it with convoluted fi...

Last year’s Force Awakens was a wonderful and almost surprising return to form for the Star Wars franchise.  While it was fun and exciting, it was more of a remake of A New Hope in more ways than many people were comfortable with.  Rogue One is Disney's first genuine f...

At the beginning of 2016, Ubisoft released a relatively quick follow up to Far Cry 4, Far Cry Primal.  I thought it looked fun to step into an unfamiliar era where animals where just as plentiful and are more dangerous than the humans you encountered.  Far Cry Primal c...

Last of Us Part II was a perfect finale to an incredible PSX conference.  A genuine surprise that, within just a couple minutes, reminded me why I loved the original so much. Taking place at least a couple years after the events of the previous game, Ellie is in the mi...

It was pretty clear from the get go this was Uncharted.  I doubted myself once I saw the planes fly overhead bombing a middle eastern city.  However, I thought for sure that it was Chloe, and sure enough the finale of the trailer not only reintroduced Chole but showed...

Edge of Seventeen was marketed as your typical coming of age film.  A protagonist who has to lose their virginity because of some weird self-imposed inadequacy.   Thankfully, I’m here to tell you the Edge of Seventeen is more than just what it was marketed as.  It’s ju...
