Arrow(verse) – an end and a new beginning

In 2005 Christopher Nolan shocked the world with his surprisingly well-made gritty Batman Begins. In 2012 the trilogy came to a close with The Dark Knight Rises. The Dark Knight trilogy was a resounding success and is one of the reasons why superhero films became mainstream blockbuster films. Of course, we already had the Sam…

The Mandalorian – A New Hope

Disney+ has only launched in a few countries thus far, but those that still have to wait for it have something to look forward to. The Mandalorian is both Disney’s first Direct-to-Streaming and live-action Star Wars television series and it delivers. At the time of writing, I was able to see the first four episodes…

Rogue One – The only Rogue Story

I saw Rogue One when it hit theaters, but did not feel like giving it a full blown review then, as I was very conflicted. People seemed to really like it and I wanted to like it, but the truth is, I didn’t. Don’t get me wrong, Rogue One is still one of the best…

IO (2019) – The MacGuffin

Thus far, Netflix only counts 13 original Sci-Fi films their own. It is all the more disappointing that one of their newest entries, IO, is a big letdown. The concept is great. We meet Sam (Margaret Qualley), a young woman (probably in her early twenties, but not quite clear) and one of the last people…

The Boys – Brilliant Anti-Superhero Superhero TV Show

Amazon Studios has delivered another winner for its streaming service Prime. The Boys at times feels like a comedy, but is as dark as it gets. The Boys is set in a fictional version of today, where superheroes are a given. However, unlike most superhero films and shows, the world of The Boys doesn’t give…

SOLO – Yet Another Star Wars Story…

I skipped SOLO in theatres, as I was not the least bit interested in seeing it, but I recently caught it at a friend’s place, who had bought the digital version of the film, so I am ending up reviewing it after all. Right of the back, I want to mention that SOLO did not…
