Should Movie Theaters Even Open?

We live in a capitalist society, captalism means expansion through the use of money. We want movies and experience them on big screens, movie studios want money so they’ll put them on big screen. There is no ethical consumption under capitalism, so yes, based purely on an economic perspective they need to be open. They’re a major employer across the world after all. But that’s … Continue reading Should Movie Theaters Even Open?

Deathstroke: Knights and Dragons is Taken 2 (a Review)

Deathstroke as a character was one of the first villains/anti-heroes to get his own spin-off comic series. Though popular culture seems to have forgotten that, they hadn’t forgotten that he was the standout character in the Teen Titans show, and just a cool design with more of a backstory than most anti-heroes. It makes him ripe for movie potential, and is sad that his Marvel … Continue reading Deathstroke: Knights and Dragons is Taken 2 (a Review)

We Summon the Darkness is Satanic Propaganda (a Review)

Movies come out all the time that it’s hard to keep track. That statement was true enough when the theaters were fully open. It’s gotten worse with streaming. Netflix being the worst of them just dumps movies on their site without fan fare sometimes that it’s impossible to keep up because it had no marketing budget. That takes us to this horror flick that came … Continue reading We Summon the Darkness is Satanic Propaganda (a Review)

Project Power isn’t the best Title, but it’s Hard to Think of a Different One (a Review)

Despite my feelings, Netflix has been on a roll with their recent release of action films. Project Power positions itself as another one of those with Jamie Foxx, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Dominique Fishback heading the flick. The film, set in New Orleans, follows what happens when a new drug, a mix of X-Men mutant powers meets Limitless, called Power hits the streets. After the epidemic … Continue reading Project Power isn’t the best Title, but it’s Hard to Think of a Different One (a Review)

Two Trips to The Kissing Booth (a Review of The Kissing Booth 1 and 2)

With movie theaters maybe never opening for the rest of the year it is hard to get new movies to review weekly since I don’t want to spend the $20 to rent (since I barely spend that much going to the theater) home releases. This brings me to a double feature look at something I never would normally watch, The Kissing Booth and its recently … Continue reading Two Trips to The Kissing Booth (a Review of The Kissing Booth 1 and 2)

Palm Springs is a Time Trip (a Review)

Since the pandemic has seriously crippled many a person’s summer plans, I can speak from experience on that, I think the collective have been starved for a real vacation escape. Hulu is trying to bring that with their new comedy Palm Spring! Palm Springs features Andy Samberg and Cristin Milioti as Nyles and Sarah, a couple of wedding guests that get stuck in a timeloop … Continue reading Palm Springs is a Time Trip (a Review)

The Old Guard is Fine (a Review)

With Disney, Marvel, and Warner Bros refusing to put out their blockbuster comic book movies onto streaming there has been a real dearth in action movies this year. Specifically comic book related action movies. That’s changed with Netflix teaming up with superstar comic writer Greg Rucka to produce an adaption of his series The Old Guard. Out of all the big comic writers Rucka is … Continue reading The Old Guard is Fine (a Review)

Eurovision: An Overly Long Title that Makes Me Think of Fyre Festival (a Review)

This was something I thought I could easily ignore. Will Farrell is an actor that has really only made a handful of actual good movies with a couple of movies people think are funny but not actually good. But teaming with the director of Wedding Crashers and The Judge to make a parody of a European singing contest seemed easy to ignore as dumb since … Continue reading Eurovision: An Overly Long Title that Makes Me Think of Fyre Festival (a Review)

Hamilton is Finally Available to the Masses (a Review)

I have many, many thoughts on the restrictive nature of Broadway. I understand some of it, but it also denies people who could get interested in Broadway the ability to get interested. The one musical that broke that was Hamilton, the historical hip-hop musical. It broke that barrier through the album alone, but unless you were lucky you were unable to see the show proper. … Continue reading Hamilton is Finally Available to the Masses (a Review)
