TV REVIEW: ‘The X-Files’: ‘Home Again’

I have a feeling that last week’s “Mulder and Scully Meet the Were-Monster” will be the high point for the 2016 miniseries revival of “The X-Files,” as it was everything an episode of “The X-Files” should be: creepy, witty and original. It only seems natural for the follow-up, “Home Again,” to feel like a bit […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Eddie the Eagle’ stumbles much less than its title character does

What happened to the feel-good movie? It seems that there’s nothing but negativity pervading the cinemas of 2016. Sure, I give into that negativity quite a bit, especially with my favorite genre of film being horror, but it’s always nice to go to a movie to feel good sometimes as well. The only issue with […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Deadpool’ is a curious twist on the superhero formula

At first, the superhero genre was something I was completely enthralled with, but have since become more and more tired of. Sure, Marvel Studios is churning out some pretty good films, even having some, like “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” and “Guardians of the Galaxy,” easily set themselves up as some of the best the […]
