Tenet Review: Menswear, Homoeroticism, Time Travel, and Not Much Else

Disclaimer: We are currently in the middle of an ongoing pandemic in the United States, where this writer is based. Our government was slow to act, and because of that, our numbers are still very high. A movie theater is not a safe place to be because people will be taking off their masks to […]

Mulan Review: Beautifully Shot and Wonderfully Acted

Mulan Review: Beautifully Shot and Wonderfully Acted

Mulan is by far the best of live-action Disney remakes as it takes a familiar story and twists it to create something with absolutely stunning cinematography and great fight scenes that truly makes it feel new and epic. Director: Niki Caro Summary: When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family […]

Dollhouse Review: This Slamdance Darling is a Total Dud

Dollhouse Review: This Slamdance Darling is a Total Dud

Dollhouse: The Eradication of Female Subjectivity from American Popular Culture. Yes, it's a long title, but documentaries have long titles, and I enjoy those, so this may be good in the same way. Despite it being a very indie mockumentary about a child star staged only with dolls (yes, like Barbie dolls) and not a […]

Hamilton Review: Stripped-Down Elements Place Emphasis on Performances

Hamilton Review: Stripped-Down Elements Place Emphasis on Performances

Unless you've been hiding under a rock since 1776, you're acutely aware of America's obsession with freedom, and our love for the old white dudes who founded our country. Well, and apple pie, but that's neither here nor there; besides, it's delicious. So slice up a piece and get ready to celebrate America's birthday with […]

Jon Stewarts Irresistible is the Summer Movie Balm to Our Politics

Jon Stewart's Irresistible is the Summer Movie Balm to Our Politics

Times have changed for Jon Stewart. The former host of The Daily Show, now five years since leaving that job, has kept a mostly low profile. So when he writes, directs, and produces Irresistible, a political satire directly addressing the failures of the US political system, it's worth noticing. What he delivers is unsurprising in […]

A Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes Review: What a Good Prequel Should Do

A Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes Review: What a Good Prequel Should Do

64 years before Katniss Everdeen took to the arena and started setting Panem on fire, there was the tenth annual Hunger Games, and one school kid by the name of Coriolanus Snow was desperate to save what was left of his family from starvation and ruin and make a name for himself. Sound intriguing? It […]

Nailed It Season 4 Review: A Shakespearean Comedy of Baking Errors

Nailed It Season 4 Review: A Shakespearean Comedy of Baking Errors

My favorite baking competition is back, with Nailed It dropping a fourth season on Netflix with a first-half filled with Shakespearean "comedy of horrors" and abstract representations of what not to do when baking. The new season is packed with lots of energy and innovation and not the good kind that inspires people but rather […]

Castlevania Review Season 3 A Dream Binge Watch for Moody Goth Teens

Castlevania Review Season 3 A Dream Binge Watch for Moody Goth Teens

Castlevania season 3 is now on Netflix for at least a month. It's hugely popular, and not hard to see why. As ever, it's violent, bloody, gory and full of snarky wisecracks with some Gnosticism and moral ambiguity thrown in. It's a perfect show for moody Goths and angry teens – even adults who are […]

Tournament of Champions Season 1 Episode 5 Champion Is Crowned Review

Tournament of Champions Season 1 Episode 5 Champion Is Crowned Review

A very exciting finale of Food Network's Tournament of Champions, where the randomizer proved a brutal punisher by pairing some truly unconventional items together. The competition started with ten men and six women, and the best-of-the-best remained to go head-to-head. For the West Coast, we had Brooke Williamson vs Antonia Lofaso; and for the East […]

Once &#038 Future Review: A Dangerously Great Retelling of King Arthur

Once & Future Review: A Dangerously Great Retelling of King Arthur

A scabbard without a sword inspires few legends and has never led to the murder of an unprepared archaeologist. Most would brush off the tragic end to a man lost in a senseless crime; thefts and their fallout are nothing new to the 24-hour news cycle. One grandmother knows better, however, and once she hears […]

The Hunt Review: A Bloody Mess Sure to Be Misunderstood

"The Hunt" Review: A Bloody Mess, Sure to Be Misunderstood

[rwp-review-recap id="0"] Who is The Hunt for, exactly? Its muddled message and inconsistent tone make it somewhat hard to follow. But by the end, you're left asking "Exactly who (or what?) am I supposed to be rooting for here?" Despite all of that, there is some buried wisdom among the nihilistic ultraviolence that offers a […]
