REview: Stranger Things 3 (2019)

The latest edition of Netflix’s Stranger Things franchise, Stranger Things 3, premiered last Friday and it was fine though there’s a sameness to the proceedings this time around. Part of this sameness is due to the format, which revolves around the adventures of a bunch of young boys growing up (essentially Stephen King’s Stand By […]

REview – Spider-Man: Far From Home (2019)

While I’ve never been a believer in the idea of franchise fatigue as far as the Marvel Cinematic Universe goes I can see how people might get tired of anything if it becomes too commonplace. Which is almost the dictionary definition of Spider-Man as he’s appeared in feature films. After the Sam Raimi Spider-Man trilogy […]

REview – The Strain (2014 – 2017)

It sort of stumbles in the third act–which doesn’t quite make sense based on everything that’s come before–but it still remains watchable. What’s particularly noteworthy […]

Review – Armistead Maupin’s Tales Of The City (2019)

Armistead Maupin’s Tales Of The City (1993), as far as I’m concerned, was a high-water mark as far as serialized adaptations go. At times funny, sad and beautiful; sometimes all within the same moment. So you can imagine so when I learned that Netflix was picking up the torch (I don’t know if it’s a […]
