Expendables 4 Review – They Made Another

The Expendables franchise is no longer with us. These films are meant to serve as an homage to the silly, low-rent action movies of the 80s and 90s, when many of our biggest action stars made their names. But if the franchise is going to continue after a nine-year hiatus, Expendables 4 (officially called Expend4bles) […]

Gen V review – Boys’ cynicism and cynicism, now with more compassion

Gen V is a spin-off of The Boys. This is both a fact about the show and a warning. It’s an incredibly violent and gory show, and you’ll see more than one bare penis on screen during the eight-episode first season. At the same time, it’s a more focused story that knows how to use […]

Loki Season 2 Review – Complicated

The second season of Loki is an exemplary example of the state of the Marvel Cinematic Universe these days. As a production, it is flawless.

For David Gordon Green, the director responsible for both the Halloween revival and The Exorcist: Believer, the answer […]

Killers Of The Flower Moon review – not long enough

Review of Five Nights At Freddy’s – Too Much Plot

When Five Nights at Freddy’s was originally greenlit eight years ago, the task of adapting this video game into a movie was much simpler. This was still true when the series first started, it had no meaningful information, and was just a silly story about a night watchman trying to survive a week with a […]

Invincible Season 2 Episode 1 Review – As Wild as You Remember

After nearly two decades of Marvel movies, we’re starting to see superhero stories dissected and get the attention they deserve. Prime Video seems to be at the center of this shift, with live-action series like The Boys and Gen V and animated series like Invincible offering sophisticated deconstructions of the genre. In addition to this […]
