‘The Boys’ Season 1 Advanced Review

The Boys is an adaptation of Garth Ennis’ deconstruction of the superhero genre. The series first season is an excellent exploration of superheroes as a concept, unchecked capitalism, and the price for revenge. The titular Boys exist in a world riddled with superheroes, all under the control of Vought International. They are humanities last defense when ...

‘Batman: Universe’ #1 Review

I have to admit, Bendis’ first Batman series at DC surprised me. Rather than the urban noir style that he approached similar properties like Daredevil and Moon Knight with, Bendis’ first Batman comic is more in line with The Brave and the Bold cartoon than any current version of Batman. The result is an absolute wonder ...

‘Doom Patrol: Weight of the Worlds’ #1 Review

After a brief (but not that brief) interruption, Gerard Way’s Doom Patrol series has returned to publication with a new number one. While the numbering may have changed, Weight of the Worlds #1 is both a perfect continuation, and fresh jumping on point for the series. The Easiest way to summarize Weight of the Worlds ...

Many of these are remakes hail from Disney’s animated Renaissance from the 90s. These films include: Beauty and the Beast (2017), Mulan (2020), and The Little Mermaid (TBA).

‘Trespassers’ Film Review

The horror genre is in a pretty interest space right now. The industry has seen trailblazing efforts like Jordan Peele’s Us and Ari Aster’s Midsommar push the boundaries of what a horror film can look like. At the same time, audiences have also seen critical duds like The Curse of La Llorona and Escape Room ...

‘Spider-Man: Far From Home’ Film Review

Avengers: Endgame was the finale to the MCU’s first decade of storytelling — completing the various plot threads that began with Iron Man in 2008. As the next film on the MCU release schedule, Spider-Man: Far From Home had to serve as the epilogue to Endgame and end a five film arc centered on the ...

‘Young Justice: Outsiders’ Mid-Season Review

Young Justice: Outsiders made its triumphant return to the small screen in late 2018, and fans everywhere collectively cheered as their favourite heroes were thrusted into a more mature, and gritty narrative.

‘The French Connection,’ Revisited

The influence of The French Connection on the modern “cops and robbers” flick remains intact after almost 41 years. A bold look at the gritty detective tale whose characters merge the line between good and bad. There are no winners in the end of this movie which in turn defied the traditional Hollywood narrative, and ...
