Guardians (2017) – The Russian Avengers Spoof

(At least I hope it is meant as a spoof…) Guardians is one of those really weird high-budget films that doesn’t act like it deserves its high budget. Let’s get right down to it. The film has the feel of a major blockbuster film, but at the same time the writing is so bad, you…

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…

Bla Bla Bland – La La Land (2016) Review

After a very long summer break, I am back with more movie reviews and we start things off with La La Land (2016). I skipped this one, when it came out in theatres and only recently got around to viewing it. With films that are talked about a lot, I often like to wait until…

Westworld Season 2 – Review

Westworld is by far the best television series currently on air and season two only reinforces that fact. While it is uneven at times, season two continues to deliver on all the key elements that make Westworld great: emotional character drama, wild plot twists and mysteries. SPOILERS ahead. Season two gets off to a slightly…

Avengers: Infinity War (2018) – “Oh, God!”

I will start with a very quick, spolier free review of Avengers: Infinity War and then immediately launch into a detailed analysis of the film as there is really so much to dig into. So first of all, you really have to see this film. But you probably shouldn’t see it if you are unfamiliar…

Ready Player One (2018) – “Shut Up, Steven!”

Before I begin the review, let me disclose that I did not read the book and thus have no background understanding of it or its characters. This is based entirely on my viewing experience of the film. Ready Player One is entertaining; it contains many goofy moments, but ultimately it is also full of clich├ęs,…
