I enjoyed Get Out, the introduction of Jordan Peele as a director. While it was a confident debut, it was also somewhat derivative. Us is another matter entirely. It possesses the same confidence of Peele’s debut, but moves with an elan bordering on bravado because let’s be clear, Us is more complex and that it […]
Blindspot is a fun, engaging episode of Love, Death + Robots. It’s not particularly deep but then again not every episode needs to be (I would go out of my gourd if every episode were a Zima Blue).
Looking at the latest trailer for John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum all I can see is just a lot of stylized violence. That’s not a bad thing in and of itself though that rings hollow after a time. Keanu Reeves is less than a terrible actor than a monochromatic one. There’re no shades to […]

So a day or two ago I rented Venom mainly because I recall reviews saying how fun the movie was. And sure, I would watch Venom over receiving a root […]
