'Murder House Flip' Quibi Trailer

Murder House Flip Review: Quibi Series' Corpse Deserves Shallow Grave

New short-form digital content service Quibi quickly won me over for their ability to deliver content in under 10 minutes and calling them "quick bites". Now if they only had some decent content to match the tech, because their DIY reality show Murder House Flip was a crime scene in series form. The series is […]

Quibi Catchup Finds The Stranger, Dummy & More Racing to The Bottom

Quibi continues to trot out its shows with efficient regularity. It's the only thing the streamer has been good at since their "spotlight content" isn't generally that good. As more and more scripted shows premiere, it feels like they're in the middle of a giant race to the bottom. Is there a contest for what […]

Most Dangerous Game Review: Ends Poorly in Oddly Subversive Way

And so, Most Dangerous Game ends. It's the second cut-up movie to finish its run on Quibi. It feels odd to review a movie in pieces, but it gives the viewer time to think about the pieces in more detail. Viewers know that likable lunkhead Dodge (Liam Hemsworth) will survive being hunted through the city […]

Dummy Review: Thinly-Veiled Vanity Project Lives Up to Its Name

Based on writer and creator Cody Heller's relationship with Dan Harmon, Quibi's new dramedy Dummy stars Anna Kendrick as Cody (creative naming) who discovers her boyfriend Dan (Donal Logue) has a sex doll. If that wasn't enough to grab your attention, then how about the fact that the doll starts talking to her? Still not […]

Dummy Trailer Like Thelma & Louise But with Anna Kendrick and Sex Doll

Quibi released a new trailer for a comedy called Dummy. It stars Anna Kendrick, who finds out her boyfriend has a sex doll that starts talking to her. It looks like Lars and the Real Girl, but the similarities end there. They're both about a character going a little bit mental and thinking sex dolls […]

Most Dangerous Game, Survive and The Stranger: Playing Quibi Catch-Up

Quibi continues to release a new chapter its shows, so I decided to catch up with the three I reviewed previously to do a catch-up. Why not? We're all in isolation and desperate for things to watch. Do they get better? Read on and find out. Apart from my morbid curiosity, I still question Quibi's […]

The Stranger Review: Quibi Thriller Thinks It's #MeToo But It's Not

I must be in a masochistic mood when I decide to watch the opening segments of Quibi's latest chopped-up movie The Stranger. I don't have high hopes. The bar is already set pretty low. Clare (Maika Monroe), a rideshare driver in Los Angeles, picks up a passenger named Carl E. (Dean Dehaan). He turns out […]

In fact, you can't get much more current […]

Survive Review: Crass Quibi Thriller My Brain Barely Survived

In Quibi's Survive, Jane (Sophie Turner) is a privileged girl who wants to end her life, when she survives a plane crash with a nice, non-suicidal guy named Paul (Corey Hawkins). They have to trek through the snowy mountains to survive. Wasn't there a more expensive version of this movie that starred Kate Winslet and […]

Reno 911 Presents All the Ways a Zoom Morning Briefing Can Go Wrong

Quibi entered the crowded streaming/online landscape this week with a launch that brought dozens of dramas, comedies, news programs, and reality series with it. While the jury is still out on a number of projects and how well the short-form digital content service will perform in the long run, the one series that could be […]

Punk'd Confuses Cruelty With Comedy As It Goes All Trash and No Laughs

Short-form mobile digital content service Quibi has revived MTV prank show Punk'd, with new celebs, new scenarios, and a new host: Chance the Rapper. In case you might be wondering, Ashton Kutcher isn't getting any screen time this round. He's not even a producer on the series, which is a little weird but it's probably […]

Most Dangerous Game Review: Still Mediocre Even in Small Doses

Quibi has launched, and now we get to see if it will be a roaringly-successful game-changer to the streaming world or another attempt at "recreating the wheel" that fails. The latest version of The Most Dangerous Game is a flagship title. Richard Connell's 1924 short story might be the most filmed thriller of all time, […]

Chrissy's Court on Quibi

Chrissy's Court Review: Promising But Not Quite Ready for Prime Time

Having Chrissy Teigen serving as a judge on new reality-court series Chrissy's Court reads like a slam-dunk idea. Beloved opinion-haver Tiegen gets to judge various squabbles, just like The People's Court or Judge Judy but instead of small claims court, these disputes come from a number of different directions. A performer in a restaurant claims […]

"Singled Out": Quibi, MTV Studios Unveil Dating Series Reboot Trailer

When Quibi steps out onto the television/streaming stage on April 6, it does so with a nice cross-section of both original content as well as reboots/reimaginings – and one of the latter that we're looking forward is MTV Studios' 2020 take on Singled Out. Gone are Chris Hardwick and Jenny McCarthy, and in their places […]
