TV Review: Sex Education (2019)

I usually am wary of sex comedies because they could easily venture towards the offensive route. Sex is a tricky topic to delve into, one that requires a degree of perceptiveness. So I came into Netflix’s Sex Education (2019) with not much expectations really. In my mind I was already categorizing this as one of those…

Review: Bumblebee (2018)

Franchise fatigue. This is what I felt after the third Transformers movie. The Bayhem can wear you down.  So I wasn’t really keen on seeing another Transformers movie to be honest, especially since over the years, as each Transformers installment rolls out, the reviews seem to get more and more vicious each time.

Top Ten Movies of 2018

The end of a year marks the spawning of year-end lists! Compared to last year, my list this time, feels populated by weird-ass movies. First Reform was weird in its own way. Sorry to Bother You was weird in a Terry Gillam way, and The Favourite was weird in the way that only Yorgos Lanthimos…

Review: Spiderman: Into the Spiderverse (2018)

There is definitely no singing bears to be found here. The Bad News: I don’t know if it was intentional to have Mowgli the movie,…

TV Review: Chilling Adventures of Sabrina (2018)

Plot: Sabrina Spellman must reconcile her dual nature as a half-witch, half-mortal while fighting the evil forces that threaten her, her family and the daylight world humans inhabit. (See Wikipedia) The Bad News: One of the main plot points in Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is how she is split down the middle. One foot in the…
