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…

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…

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…

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…
