Review – Love, Death + Robots | Episode 4 : Suits

Suits is a great episode and if it doesn’t end up ranking among the best I’ll be genuinely shocked. Written by Tim Miller, it’s a love letter to what I imagine are his favorite movies, like Aliens and Starship Troopers.

Welcome to “Postmortem,” a feature that goes behind the scenes of some of your favorite films, and asks:  What the heck went wrong?! Paul W.S. Anderson (the Resident Evil films,  “Soldier,” Event Horizon,” “Pompeii”), if you’ve ever seen him in a interview, like the one above, appears very knowledgable about the films he chooses to […]
