Legion – “Chapter 1” Review

If you want interesting superheroes, it is somewhat advisable to shun the big screen interpretations. The characters who appear on screen have to cram both plot and emotional development into a relatively scant two hours, as well as set up any future movies within the franchise. It’s a tough act to balance, and recently, some of the big name supers seem to have lost their … Continue reading Legion – “Chapter 1” Review

A Series of Unfortunate Events – Series Review

In 1999, an author named Lemony Snicket began publishing the tale of the Baudelaire Siblings, a trio of children who led a very unlucky life. The stories were collected under the title A Series of Unfortunate Events, and received great fame and popularity around the world and even had a film made comprising the first three tomes (though we probably shouldn’t mention that here.) Recently, … Continue reading A Series of Unfortunate Events – Series Review

Sherlock: Season 4, Episode 3 – “The Final Problem” Review (Spoilers!)

(This post goes into great detail about spoilers. Look away if you haven’t seen it.) Last week’s episode of Sherlock definitely ranks as one of the best.

Allowing the … Continue reading Sherlock: Season 4, Episode 3 – “The Final Problem” Review (Spoilers!)

Sherlock: Season 4, Episode 2 – “The Lying Detective” Review

Last week, there were a lot of people shuffling in their seats, pretty disappointed by Sherlock‘s latest episode. With a bumbling plot that had no coherency as it sped along trying to connect the dots to get to its crushing end: Mary’s Death. It felt so underdeveloped and without thought, rushing through its intellect and never fully realising it. Last night I sat with my … Continue reading Sherlock: Season 4, Episode 2 – “The Lying Detective” Review

Crazy Ex-Girlfriend – “Where’s Josh’s Friend?” Review

I got into Crazy Ex-Girlfriend hella late. In fact, I don’t even know what took me so long. After all, I’d loved Rachel Bloom’s previous musical work for a while. Her whole talented escapades and satirical videos are iconic and to see them unleashed in television glory is relentless glee all the time. The songs are on point, the dark humour great, and the situations … Continue reading Crazy Ex-Girlfriend – “Where’s Josh’s Friend?” Review

The Walking Dead – The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be Review (Spoilers!)

Fans of The Walking Dead were shook back in April when the show’s sixth season closed with an unbearable cliffhanger. Now, the show is back, and it’s more brutal and gory than ever, and we finally know who met the end of Negan’s bat. Unfortunately, it wasn’t handled very well at all. But ignoring that for a second, just about every other thing about this … Continue reading The Walking Dead – The Day Will Come When You Won’t Be Review (Spoilers!)
