Does Anyone Care About ‘Stranger Things 4?’

Apparently Netflix’s Stranger Things 4 suffered a promotional mishap when a Monopoly game based on the series revealed major plot points for the upcoming season. And while that isn’t good for anybody, who’s still watching this show!? As far as I’m concerned it lost steam after its second season never mind the insanity of each […]

There’s No Such Thing As ‘Cancel Culture’

I’ve been working through a respiratory infection – it isn’t COVID though I imagine it’s just as unpleasant – though I’m trying to get back up to speed and this is as good a place as any to start. You might have heard recently that storied actor Frank Langella was recently fired from Netlflix’s The […]

REview: The Unholy (2021) | Good Idea, Weak Storytelling

Evan Spiliotopolous’ The Unholy has a lot of good ideas though doesn’t explore anything deeply enough to matter.

James Gunn’s ‘Suicide Squad’ Underperforms

Trailer Into REaction: Stardust (2020) | Official Trailer

Stardust appears to chronicle the period of 1972-1974, when David Bowie assumed the persona of Ziggy Stardust, which considering how theatrical he was throughout that period seems particularly cinematic. Though for a moment let’s go to me growing up in, where it was not uncommon to see posters for Bowie’s The Man Who Fell to […]

Pattinson’s Batman Revealed!

The Hollywood Reporter released a video that showed Robert Pattinson in what I think it’s safe to assume is the Batman costume from Matt Reeves’ upcoming movie. I took a screenshot from the video and lightened it and…what I could make out doesn’t look great. It feels very ‘Daredevil,’ not the Netflix series but the […]

Is Moon Knight Too Violent For Disney+?

Moon Knight is one of my favorite comic characters–that’s my bust on the left–and while I’m glad to hear that the character is getting a bit of love from Marvel, I have to ask if Disney+ is the right place for the character. Moon Knight, like most characters, has gone through various incarnations though interestingly […]
