So, Rise Against did a Song for DC’s Death Metal (a look at Broken Dreams Inc.)

Watch the video: https://youtu.be/fSure8z1lF4 DC’s Dark Nights: Metal was one of the biggest, craziest, darkest, and more beloved event books in comic history. A real metal inspired story and look that’s been escalated with all I’ve seen in this sequel series, Death Metal. It is almost perfect synergy to get a song to illustrate all the book represents and stands for and Rise Against is … Continue reading So, Rise Against did a Song for DC’s Death Metal (a look at Broken Dreams Inc.)

Does The Silence Of The Lambs Ride The Performance Of Anthony Hopkins? (A Review)

My new interest in the fictional killer Hannibal Lecter has led me to not only watching the show Hannibal, but also deciding to watch all of the movies with the character. Along with that, I have also ordered the collection of books by Thomas Harris where the character originated so that I can also read them. The best thing about all of these various forms … Continue reading Does The Silence Of The Lambs Ride The Performance Of Anthony Hopkins? (A Review)

The Devil All The Time is Bafflingly Bad (a Review)

In the Babysitter post (it’s good- you should read it) I mentioned the impossible balance Netflix must walk with its two heads. The content head, having material enough people will want to watch, but has to be diverse but unified; along the production head that must find stories they think good enough to fit on their platform while also confirming to their brand. Well that … Continue reading The Devil All The Time is Bafflingly Bad (a Review)

Yeah, but is The Legend of Korra good, Though?

I just finished my season-by-seaon look at The Legend of Korra, and overall I find it a facinating series (6,000 words of fascination later). The most fascinating, and my favorite thing about this series is the complicated and diverse discourse the show has. This might be because I relish argument as pure sport (read my piece on Smash Bros for further understanding— it’s good). You … Continue reading Yeah, but is The Legend of Korra good, Though?

Hot 100 Review: Before you Go by Lewis Capaldi

Watch the video: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=Jtauh8GcxBY You will not meet a bigger proponent for the return of normal instruments and song structure back into popular music. Not to say music that breaks from it is bad, but it often would have been better served if it were. That means people like Peter Capaldi should be Godsends. Finally, a return to normal structure. Unfortunately, a good structure doesn’t … Continue reading Hot 100 Review: Before you Go by Lewis Capaldi

That Moment When you Wait for Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan to Show Up (a Review of Cobra Kai Season 1&2)

Karate Kid is one of those nearly perfect 80s movies. A movie so precise in its focus and execution that the fact it didn’t always exist seems odd. Even after follow two more movies of varying quality and a host of spin-offs and reboots the original persistent as a classic. Cobra Kai, originally a YouTube Original (cause that’s the best way to get a TV … Continue reading That Moment When you Wait for Jaden Smith and Jackie Chan to Show Up (a Review of Cobra Kai Season 1&2)

Unpregnant more like Abor(what? What do you mean I can’t have that word in my title?That’s just what the movie is about. Okay, nevermind) – a Review

Despite being apart of the same network, it seems like HBOMax has been struggling to find programming to put on their service. That makes the edition of original movies interesting, especially simple road trip movies. Though, like romantic comedies, they are a staple of cinema and a good palet cleanser. A movie that can be made for any age group really. It’s almost genius unless … Continue reading Unpregnant more like Abor(what? What do you mean I can’t have that word in my title?That’s just what the movie is about. Okay, nevermind) – a Review

Two Nights with The Babysitter (a Review of Babysitter and Babysitter Killer Queen)

Netflix as a studio is strange when it is compared to Netflix the streaming service because their needs are so different. Netflix streaming needs to have content, their own or someone else’s, available to share and watch that is so diverse that anyone could find anything to watch. Meanwhile Netflix the Studio has to make movies they think will be good and watched, but also … Continue reading Two Nights with The Babysitter (a Review of Babysitter and Babysitter Killer Queen)

Hot 100 Review: Mood by 24kGolden (feat. Iann Dior)

Watch the video: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=GrAchTdepsU Something that often drives me when writing is not only trying to figure out my opinions on a song, but to try and understand why a song is popular in the first place. But moreso than that, it is an exercise in getting into other people’s heads. Mood is a fascinating example of that. Coming in at barely under two minutes … Continue reading Hot 100 Review: Mood by 24kGolden (feat. Iann Dior)
