This time, … Continue reading How “Cobra Kai” succeeds with nostalgia where others fail

Before you watch the Snyder Cut, let’s talk about the “Superman II” director’s cut

One of my favorite films ever is The Mummy (1999) (yes, the one with Brendan Fraser). It came out when I was 10 years old and it was the perfect mix of fun, horror and action that worked so well it became a sort of modern day Indiana Jones. But for all my love for the film, there was always one moment that really bothered … Continue reading Before you watch the Snyder Cut, let’s talk about the “Superman II” director’s cut

“Batman Ninja” is a fun concept overblown by excess and incoherence – Review

The title “Batman Ninja” tells you pretty much everything you need to know about the film you’re about to watch. In that sense, it more than delivers on its promise to have a Batman story set against the backdrop of Feudal Japan – even if the story is pretty generic. The animation and character design are very imaginative; and they flawlessly combine the Batman characters … Continue reading “Batman Ninja” is a fun concept overblown by excess and incoherence – Review

Streaming Selects June 2020 PART 2: 3 Movies to Stream RIGHT NOW

For this second streaming bucket list for June 2020, I decided to focus on sequels that have mostly been forgotten and/or were underrated at the time of their release. Nowadays, we are exposed to so many different kinds of content that it’s easy to forget about certain films that came out without massive media coverage and for which the word-of-mouth was unfairly limited. But this … Continue reading Streaming Selects June 2020 PART 2: 3 Movies to Stream RIGHT NOW

Streaming Bucket List June 2020: 3 Movies to Stream RIGHT NOW

Since we started quarantine, over 289249292 years ago, rewatch has become a way of life. This is due, in part, to the apparent lack of new content that has been launched during this time – besides “Tiger King”, which nobody wants to talk about anymore (hopefully).
