One thing I always say, especially as a critic is, we all have a bias and anyone who says they don’t is lying. We all have things and genres we like and dislike. If something is good it’s good and if something is great then it’s great. I’m someone who hates Puppets and puppet related films. With that said, Team America World Police is one of my favorite movies and I adore The Muppets. Due to my general dislike of puppets, I’ve never sat down and watched the cult classic – The Dark Crystal, created by the legendary creator of the Muppets Jim Henson. Netflix’s The Dark Crystal: The Age of Resistance was a revelation and eye opener for me.
Is there a way I can make the iconic Beverly Hills 90210 theme in words – ddddd, clap, clap… Nah, that doesn’t work. Brenda! Ok, I’m in a weird mood as I write this quick review of Beverly Hills 90210 or as the cool kids call it BH90210. What the hell is this show? It’s not a reboot, it’s not a mockumentaray, it’s not even and it’s not even a reality show. It’s one of the weirdest things I’ve seen and after I got over the initial shock of it, I kind of love it. Beverly Hills 90210 airs on the Fox Networks starting this week.
DC Universe is not playing around, if you haven’t checked out the service, run, don’t walk. After the critical success of their wonderfully weird Doom Patrol, they are going obscure again with the classic DC series Swamp Thing. From the opening sequence to the end of the 2nd episode I was hooked. There’s just something wonderfully creepy and cinematic about the unique viewing experience. Swamp Thing launches on the DC Universe App, May 31st.
After the harrowing events at the end of part one of the Chilling Tales of Sabrina, we were left with a lot of questions and shattered little hearts. Now Netflix is dropping the back half of Season 1, April 5th and I can’t wait. Luckily Netflix gave me access to a few episodes so I don’t have to.
No matter how awful everything turned out the first season of the 1999 series Roswell will always remain one of my top 10 favorite first seasons of all time. The show was utterly brilliant in terms of storytelling, character set up, initial world building, use of music and more. It still pains me how all of that good will was squandered in Season 2.
I think I’m the only person in the world who did not get the hype for HBO’s True Detective. I tried to watch the first season but it never clicked. It had amazing acting, but I found the pacing made it a slog to get through and most importantly its story telling gimmick of multiple time jumps confusing and simply broke the narrative flow. Those same issues have returned for Season 3.
When one of the coolest actors on the planet takes on the role of Santa Claus, he turns what could have been just another sappy, sugary sweet Christmas movie into a tasty Christmas treat.
Santa Claus premieres on Netflix on Thursdaday, November 22rd.
When an employee of PNR Industries Inc. steals data from his company to sell to a competitor, it sets off a series of moves that seem, at first glance, to be anything other than corporate.
The result is taking cost management, risk assessment, downside risk management and corporate responsibility into deep, dark waters.
This week on Doctor Who (BBC America, 8/7C), The Doctor and her friends find themselves on a hospital ship following the exploding of a sonic mine – but the hospital ship is no sanctuary.
With Arachnids in the UK, Doctor Who (BBC America, Sundays, 8/7C) returns to one of the genres it does particularly well – horror. Time to start watching from between your fingers (or from behind your sofa)!
The first season of Castlevania set up the story in mostly broad strokes – the Dracula Lucy relationship was more detailed while the introductions of Trevor Belmont, Tepes’ son Alucard and Speaker Sypha Benades were pretty basic.
Season two gives us backstory on the three, as well as that of two human characters – Isaac and Hector – who are helping Dracula in his war to exterminate humanity.
