Jet Force Gemini (1999) review

Rated: 4 / 5 Back in the day, the first time I heard about this N64 game was from this promotional VHS tape all subscribers of the magazine Nintendo Power got for free, in the mail. Back then, I thought this was one of the most awesome advertisements ever. Today, this is some of the … Continue reading Jet Force Gemini (1999) review

The Green Knight (2021) vs. Gawain and the Green Knight (1991)

The Green Knight Rated: 1 / 5 Wokeness: 3 / 5 You know, the most hilarious thing about this is the imdb description of it.

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

Rated: 2 / 5 Do not foster pride, glorious warrior! 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

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

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

Matilda (1996) review

Rated: 2.5 / 5 Everyone is born, but not everyone is born the same. Some will grow to be butchers, or bakers, or candlestick makers. Some will only be really good at making Jell-O salad. One way or another, though, every human being is unique, for better or for worse. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MdC_YMvYZyI One of those films … Continue reading Matilda (1996) review

The Evil Dead (1981, 2013) review

Rated: 3.5 / 5 Book of the Dead There aren't many horror films like this I actually enjoy. By all accounts, I shouldn't be enjoying this one. It has a lot of the tropes I really hate. Some dumb broad thinking it's a good idea to wander off into the woods by herself, in the … Continue reading The Evil Dead (1981, 2013) review

A Clockwork Orange (1971) film review

Rated: 4 / 5 It's funny how the colors of the real world only seem really real when you view them on the screen. Spoiler Warning This is one of the rare cases where I believe the filmmaker made the right decision removing the last chapter of the novel the film is based on for … Continue reading A Clockwork Orange (1971) film review
