Bone (1991-2004) comic review

Rated: 2.5 / 5 Wokeness: 2 / 5 This comic gets plenty of things right, primarily with regard to how to put the reader in the middle of things, not really holding their hand with a slow sturdy introduction into the world, its occupants, factions, and characters. You are plopped right into the immediate aftermath … Continue reading Bone (1991-2004) comic review

Secretary (2002) review

Rated: 3 / 5 A while back, I went hard on those 50 Shades films (first, second, and third) in a series of drunk reviews (I couldn't get through those films sober). I never thought I'd find myself saying this, but I was too easy on those movies. Because I'm ashamed to admit that I … Continue reading Secretary (2002) review

The great fame of your might lasts but a little while. then soon enough will sickness or the sword deprive you of strength-- or the grasp of flames, or the surging flood, or the slashing blade, or the flight of a spear, or horrid old … Continue reading Beowulf (2007), and the passing down of stories and their values

Starship Troopers (1997) analysis and comparison to the novel (1959)

Film Rated: 3.5 / 5 Book Rated: 3.5 / 5 The film isn't very much like the novel itself. Both were made for entirely different reasons.

Anomalous Host’s Personal Top 15 Favorite Comedies

I'm not sure if it's a good idea to make a list for this genre. Comedy is the one thing in all film that is more subjective than everything else. Anyone can enjoy a good physical stunt, or a good moment of acting, and admire a well-written screenplay put to film, plus the cinematography.

The Last Samurai (2003) review

Rated: 3 / 5 So the actions scenes are great and all, particularly during the last act. The movie is made well, paced well, acted well, it's all well-constructed. In the past I enjoyed the hell out of this movie. Nowadays, the political undertones are too loud for me to ignore for my honed-in senses. … Continue reading The Last Samurai (2003) review

Sacrificing Liberty (2020) documentary review

Rated: 4.5 / 5 Currently an entry for this doesn't exist on IMDB, which is saying a lot considering Europa: The Last Battle has an entry on that site (a less-professionally-made documentary that I've begun to find to be more flawed and misinformed the more I look into it, though it does still contain enough … Continue reading Sacrificing Liberty (2020) documentary review

Death of a Soldier (1986) review

Rated: 3.5 / 5 "No rape, no robbery, and no motive. What the hell could he be after!?" This is one of the most underrated films ever made. It has never made it on DVD, and virtually no one knows about it. It's based on the true events that happened during the final years of … Continue reading Death of a Soldier (1986) review

Farscape (1999-2004) series review

Rated: 4 / 5 One of the few shows out there that managed to maintain being consistent in quality throughout its existence. It's a show I never appreciated as much as I should've. Mainly because at the time I was thinking, "Yeah, this show is fun. It's a sign of better things to come if … Continue reading Farscape (1999-2004) series review
