Jurassic World Review

by

Am I getting old? That’s the thought that crosses my mind as I tap away at this keyboard. I’m trying to figure out if I missed something, or if I’m jaded—I mean, I just went back to Jurassic Park! I saw dinosaurs! I saw flying pterodactyls, even the armored joints, and velociraptors! Big ol’ computer ...

Insidious: Chapter 3 Review

by

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nXU6lqgF5y0 Insidious: Chapter 3 is a prequel to the first two films of the Insidious franchise, so the Lambert family (Insidious 1 & 2) is no where to be seen, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t familiar faces (or that this movie’s any less scary). This story is about Quinn Brenner (Stefanie Scott), a high school ...

Poltergeist Review

by

Poltergeist is about a family that moves into a house that is haunted by a powerful paranormal entity, or poltergeist.  Things go south real fast for the family when the noisy ghosts abduct the family’s youngest child.  With time running out, they must find a way to rescue her, and—if there’s time—maybe try to banish ...

Game of Thrones Returns

by

Spoiler Alert: If you haven't seen Season 4 & Season 5, Episode 1. Game of Thrones returns with a sputter of an episode to kick off its 5th season. Following the events of Season 4’s climatic finale, this episode is all talk, and not so much slice n’ dice. Even the deaths weren’t shocking--the characters that ...

Daredevil Review

by

This review is just to get you started. For the sake of any first-timers who have no idea about the Marvel comics character, Daredevil, I’ll take it easy by first establishing what Daredevil is about--just enough to pique some interest. In a post-Avengers world, Daredevil follows the exploits of a blind daytime lawyer/nighttime vigilante Matt Murdock ...

Furious 7 Review

by

I must say, I don’t know why I keep coming back for more of the same, but I admit that I’m a sucker for The Fast and The Furious franchise, mainly because it delivers every single goddamn time.  The mandatory car races, brimming with reckless youth and scantily clad women; the proverbial exotic cars, destined ...

House of Cards: Season 3

by

People couldn’t wait to get their House of Cards binge fix after last season’s cliffhanger. Thankfully, Netflix offers a recap for fans who need it before queuing the third season. The recently sworn in and “honorable” President, Francis Underwood, sits comfortably in his new seat, but soon encounters opposition from all fronts. After devastating all ...

The Walking Dead Returns

by

We're still reeling from last week's episode and looking forward to the next, but here's a recap of the mid-season premiere episode of The Walking Dead.  After a climactic mid-season break, TWD offers up a trippy episode that begins with a series of puzzling images and indie-like shots that I feel came off as make-or-break ...

Jupiter Ascending Review

by

Jupiter Ascending is a visual experience that’ll keep your eyes glued to the screen. No, I’m lying, and you’d probably need the surgical tool from A Clockwork Orange to keep your eyelids forced open and your head propped up during the movie, because this flick is one huge pyramid of burning money. Wow, this is ...
