Review: Blade Runner 2049 (2017)

One of things Lily and I talked about, before watching Blade Runner 2049 was whether or not we could take with us, people who haven’t seen the original version, Ridley Scott’s 1982 Blade Runner. I deduced that yes, they would probably make a movie that can stand alone, it’ll be beneficial too, finance wise, not…

Review: Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017)

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD As George R.R. Martin once said, stories in which only the extras die are “such a cheat”. All men must die. Valar Morghulis. This is true. But here’s the deal, deaths should have a purpose, they should make sense to the overall story. The cause of death doesn’t matter, death by meat grinder, death by…

TV Review: Game of Thrones 7 Episode 5: Eastwatch

You know what? I propose that there’d be a whole episode devoted to just Drogon flying, screeching, and dracarys-ing for a full one hour. I’d be riveted! These dragons are so fantastically rendered! With that said, episode 5 has a tad less of Drogon in it, and therefore compared to Episode 4: The Spoils of…

Mini Reviews #6: Okja, To The Bone and Riverdale

Okja (2017)  Okja is a heartwarming tale about a girl and her pet, a genetically-modified super pig. But what keeps this from being your any average pet movie, is that it not only explores the pet and owner bond but tackles a lot of meaty topics as well. (Nope, I will not apologize for that…

Review: Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017)

WARNING: SPOILERS AHEAD How many has it been? Five Spider-Mans? (Spider-Men?) Five is quite a number. I mean sure, in terms of quantity, Spider-Man still falls a movie or two short of say, Batman, Superman, and perhaps Wolverine. But five movies later, 3 from Sam Raimi, and 2 from Marc Webb, are more than enough…

Review: Wonder Woman (2017)

Last Sunday, everybody in my city seemed to have trooped en masse to watch Wonder Woman. We were able to catch the earliest and first showing, and so the crowd wasn’t as big. But when we got out of the cinema the people waiting to get in for the second showing snaked for miles. And I…

Review: King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017)

I was not surprised to see Guy Ritchie’s name attached to a project like this. His Sherlock Holmes movies were box office successes. And while I don’t think they were particularly memorable, they weren’t rubbish. But I admit, I had my doubts because while Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock can be easily modernized, and can easily…

Suicide and Superpowers

I was well into the 7th season of AMC’s The Walking Dead. But come the tenth episode entitled New Best Friends, I begin to question the road this show is taking which might just be “downhill”. Because the “scavengers” scene was pretty darned ridiculous, almost cartoonishly so. But no, I am not going to write…
