I recently caught The Bye Bye Man on Netflix, and the good thing is that it’s not irredeemably bad. Which still means that it’s bad, just not so bad you get angry at yourself for having watched it. It has all the elements of a really entertaining, well-done movie but the most essential element of […]
What is it with the DCEU, Worlds Of DC or whatever the heck they’re calling it this week? Now it appears they’re creating an Elseworlds version of Joker, but there’s a problem, namely that there ALREADY is a Joker!

And as I mention in my review, it’s an oddly joyous–I don’t mean that in terms of happiness, but in […]
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).
