Transformers #1 Review

One of IDW’s best-licensed series of comics was their Transformers Generation One continuity. It modernized the Autobot/Decepticon war for the 21st century and eventually told stories that explore stories beyond the franchise’s core conceit. It was a wonderful 11 years of comic books storytelling, but everything gets rebooted eventually. IDW released the debut issue of ...

‘Fighting With My Family’ Film Review

There is something inherently enjoyable about seeing the underdog rise to the top of whatever industry serves as the fixation of their fantasies. This is why, despite inconsistent quality, people love watching Rocky movies so much. There is also a sense of comfort in how predictable the story is; with writers and directors throwing in ...

Strangers in Paradise XXV #10, Cover art by Terry Moore. When I purchased a copy of this comic book from my local store, I didn’t know that it would mark the end of Strangers in Paradise XXV. Then I saw the cover -- a beautiful homage to the very first issue of Strangers in Paradise ...

‘Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse’ Film Review

After success in his first solo outing for Disney’s Marvel Cinematic Universe, Spider-Man has returned to theaters, but it’s not the same person under the mask.

Uncanny X-Men #3 is a mixed bag. One the one hand it does have some very enjoyable sequences, but it also suffers from a weak plot structure and a disregard for character development. The action sequences are big and this comic emphasizes the superhero fun one can have reading an X-Men comic; for example, watching the ...

‘If Beale Street Could Talk’ Film Review | TIFF 2018

There are times when a film comes along that surprises me, not just in content but by presentation. How it plays with form in an attempt to craft something unique in an industry that makes billions from giving audiences what is expected of them. I am immediately skeptical of the thing when credits role, but ...
