Avengers: Infinity War – Spoiler Review

  After 10 years of build up and 18 movies finally it’s here! Was it even possible for this film to live up to the expectations and hype that came with this long journey? For me I haven’t been this excited for a movie in a really long time. And did it live up to…

Solo: A Star Wars Story – Review

Star Wars fans can be a surly, cynical, and often overly protective bunch. Trust me, I’m not saying that as some outside observer with his nose in the air. I myself am a proud, passionate, card-carrying member of that bunch. I adore Star Wars and it is indelibly etched into my entire life story. I…

Jodorowsky’s Dune – Documentary Review

Frank Herbert’s Dune is rightfully considered a classic of science fiction, so it’s only natural that there would be attempts to adapt it to other media. David Lynch’s Dune, released in 1984, was a critical and commercial flop. Although it’s gained cult status over the intervening years, it’s still a clunky film that fails to work more often…

Netflix’s Mindhunter – TV Review

MINDHUNTER is Netflix’s newest original series and it tells the story of the early days at the FBI when they start interviewing serial killers to gain insight into why they did what they did to help the FBI solve and prevent further crimes. David Fincher directed the first two episodes along with the finale. What makes this…

Star Wars: Bloodline – Book Review

This is a book I’ve been interested in reading for a while. It stars Leia about 20 years or so after Return of the Jedi. There are three major subjects in this book, one is directly stated, and the others are mostly hints. There will be some minor spoilers in this review, but I’ll keep…

Blade Runner 2049 – Review

Just two years from the future that Blade Runner predicted thirty years ago, and we are still steps away from emotive replicants, hover cars, and instant showers. What has however exceeded 20th century expectations, is digital imagery. Film has since seen brilliant advances in simulating realistic holography and futuristic landscapes. It is hence no surprise that Blade Runner…

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle – Review

Jumanji is a remake (or a sequel?) of the original Jumanji movie starring Robin Williams and Kirsten Dunst from 1995. The difference is that, in the original movie, the main characters play the Jumanji board game, whereas in the new one, we’ve advanced enough to switch to a video game. At the beginning of the movie, we follow four high school students…

Bright – Movie Review

Bright isn’t taking home any Best Picture awards next year, but that’s not to say it doesn’t have anything to offer in terms of entertainment. Directed by David Ayer and written by Max Landis, this brand new Netflix original succeeds (to an extent) in terms of providing a somewhat engaging sci-fi “buddy cop” action flick. Landis,…

Fantastic Beasts 2 – What to Expect

On November 18th 2016, J.K Rowling’s Wizarding World made a comeback to big screens with the release of Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. Just before the first film was released, it was confirmed that there would in fact be five films in the series with the second being released on November 16th 2018….

The Eye of the World by Robert Jordan – Book Review

The Wheel of Time series is one of the biggest selling fantasy franchises, with over 80 million books in the series sold, and published in over 20 languages. Jordan (real name James Oliver Rigney) is considered one of the masters of epic fantasy, and along with R. R. Martin, ranked as one of the nearest rivals to Tolkien….
