TV Review: ‘Fargo’ – Season Three

Fargo Season 3

While Noah Hawley Continues To Successfully Emulate The Coen Brothers, Season Three Feels Like It’s Missing Something   There are few filmmakers in Hollywood with the talent of the Coen Brothers. Many have tried to copy their signature feeling of dark wry humor and suspenseful criminal drama. Noah Hawley is one of the few creative minds that has successfully emulated that style with the TV series Fargo. Season three of the anthology series still continues to have that Coen Brothers feeling. Yet, something does seem a little bit off. Ray Stussy (Ewan McGregor) is a parole officer who’s fallen for a […]

Movie Review: ‘Transformers: The Last Knight’ (2017)

Transformers The Last Knight Review

Michael Bay Goes Out With A Bang In His “Final” Chapter of the Transformers Franchise 2017 marks the Ten Year Anniversary of the Transformers movie franchise. In celebration, director Michael Bay brings us the fifth chapter in the series, Transformers: The Last Knight. Apparently, this is also his final tale to tell in the franchise. While the film is better than the last couple films in the saga, if that’s saying much, it still fails to bring something new to the franchise. Mark Wahlberg returns as Cade Yeager to star in his second Transformers adventure. Once again, the world’s destruction is imminent and […]

TV Review: ‘Better Call Saul’ – Season Three

Better Call Saul Season 3

Jimmy & Chuck Finally Go Head To Head, Mike & Nacho Meet a Familiar Face, & Saul Goodman Makes an Appearance   Some people consider Vince Gilligan’s Breaking Bad to be the best television show of all time. However, with every new season of Better Call Saul, that crown might be up for grabs when this series is all said and done. The Bob Odenkirk led show is no doubt the best prequel series in the history of the medium. Things continue slipping even further out of Jimmy’s hands in the third season of the hit AMC show. When we […]

TV Review: ‘American Gods’ – Season One

American Gods Season One 1 Starz

American Gods Brings Neil Gaiman’s World to Life with an Amazing Cast, Dazzling Imagery, & Mind Bending Fantasy   What if gods only exist because man believes in them? That chicken before the egg riddle is the premise behind Starz’s fantasy series American Gods. Based on the novel of the same name by best-selling Author Neil Gaiman, the tale is a lot more complex than your common riddle. It’s the kind of show you need a good companion guide to read after watching to help better understand what’s going on. Or you could read the book. With the conclusion of the […]

Movie Review: ‘Rough Night’ (2017)

Rough Night

Neither As Crazy As The Hangover or As Funny as Bridesmaids, Rough Night Shoots & Misses   It’s wedding season! That means it’s time for the annual girl’s night out (or boy’s night out) movie. Lucia Aniello launches into the world of film directing with Rough Night, her directorial debut. While her ventures on the small screen like Broad City and Other Space bring the funny with ease, her first film struggles to consistently keep the laughs coming. Scarlett Johansson stars as Jess, a wannabe state senator running for office. She’s spending a weekend away from the campaign trail to reunite with her college besties for […]

Movie Review: ’47 Meters Down’ (2017)

47 Meters Down

Hold Your Breath! Mandy Moore & Claire Holt Fight Off Sharks In This Shark Movie   Shark movies are a hit and miss summertime tradition for Tinsel Town. Ever since Jaws changed the movie business, every studio has tried their hand and making the next best shark movie. 47 Meters Down is this year’s dive into the genre. The movie takes a few notes from Spielberg’s classic, thankfully showing as little of the big fish as possible. However, when the 25-foot monsters do show up, you wish they hadn’t. Mandy Moore and Claire Holt play sisters Lisa and Kate, respectively. After getting […]

Retro Review: ‘Jaws’ (1975)

Jaws Steven Spielberg

That’s Some Bad Hat, Harry… This Classic Shark Tale is One of Our Favorites   There’s no question. Steven Spielberg’s Jaws changed Hollywood. Not only did inspire new auteurs in the art of film, it completely changed the way movies get released. We are familiar with the concept of blockbusters today. However, before a giant man-eating shark terrorized the beaches of Amity Island, no movie had ever broken $100 million at the box office during its initial run. You know the story. Roy Scheider plays Police Chief Martin Brody. Brody protects the population on the small island summer town even though […]

Movie Review: ‘The Mummy’ (2017)

The Mummy

The Dark Universe Begins… Not With A Big Bang, But With A Mediocre Adventure…   Shared cinematic universes are all the rage these days. Honestly, the concept is nothing new. In fact, you can say Universal created the idea back in the day with their classic monsters around the dawn of the talkie. So them wanting to get back into the game is no surprise. The Mummy is their third attempt to launch this shared universe, after films like I Frankenstein and Dracula Untold bombed at the box office. However, now the studio is going all in. A few weeks ago, Universal announced the […]

Movie Review: ‘It Comes At Night’ (2017)

It Comes At Night

Another Terrifying Hit for 2017 to Add to the Argument, This is the Year of Horror…   How far would you go to protect your family? At what cost is too much to keep them safe? Those are the questions It Comes At Night makes you ask yourself. Trey Edward Shults weaves together a gripping story that will leave you questioning not only the events of the film you just saw but also your own actions if faced with a similar situation. It will make you wonder which doors you’d be able to open and which doors you’ll want to keep […]

Game Review: ‘Friday the 13th: The Game’ (PC)

Friday the 13th: The Game Jason

Surviving Jason’s Murderous Wrath (or Performing It) Has Never Been More Fun…   “Ki Ki Ki, Ma Ma Ma…” The haunting tune echoes through your ears as you frantically search the desk drawers of your summer camp cabin for something. Anything, to help you survive the murderous onslaught that threatens your very existence. Empty again. Then you notice out of the corner of your eye, a red gas can. You scramble to grab the fuel. However, now you must decide. Do you use this gas to fill up the car or the boat? The car could possibly get you and […]
