The Big Sick is a RomCom about a Pakistani-American comedian who struggles with his family's traditions while maintaining a rocky relationship with a woman in a coma. And it is based on a true story.

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...

Werner Herzog has always been a capable documentarian. His gentle, remote voice and strangely plodding pace through a variety of unconnected subjects makes for hypnotic viewing. Seeing any of his films is less like experiencing a core argument or narrative, as so many...

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt probably doesn't need an introduction. It has received enough acclaim and praise from its release and its accolades haven't ceased singing its virtues even now. And because it has a "3" in the title, it can be assumed nobody needs to be notifie...

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...

Shows that get the most acclaim tend to be described with buzzwords such as "riveting," "suspenseful," and "intense." But there's very little vocal appreciation for programs that are cute, relaxing, or placidly paced. Slice of life gets far too little attention outside...
