MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Baywatch’ sinks to the ocean floor under its own weight

I’ve never watched the original “Baywatch” when it was on television, but I do clearly remember it topping TV Guide’s “50 Worst Television Shows Ever” list from when I was a child, and knowing that makes it hard to kick. Even when this reboot was announced, I still couldn’t seem to drop the fact that […]

ALBUM REVIEW: ‘Burn Bridges, Burn Pies’ – OhBree

You know the surrealist painter Salvador Dalí, right? You might know him as the guy who painted those bizarre melting clocks or the man with the equally weird mustache.  What if I told you that there was a band who could provide the perfect soundtrack to his paintings? There is, and their name is OhBree. […]

TV REVIEW: ‘Better Call Saul’ – ‘Expenses’

Spoiler Warning for Season 3, Episode 7 of “Better Call Saul,” as well as all seasons of “Breaking Bad.” All actions have consequences and that theme comes into play as things slow down a bit to pick up the pieces and develop the characters after multiple hectic episodes. Jimmy must work harder than ever to […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales’ provides charming formula, nothing more

There’s a certain dated quality that comes in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise now, as it just seems to be a little outside of its peak timeframe now, feeling a bit more like a reboot than that of a sequel, but alas, in the age of reboots, “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell […]

TV REVIEW: ‘Twin Peaks’ – ‘The Return, Part 1 and 2’

Spoiler Warning for the Season Premiere of “Twin Peaks,” as well as all episodes of the original series. “I’ll see you again…in 25 years, meanwhile…” That chilling line of dialogue has been ingrained in the minds of “Twin Peaks” fans since the finale aired back on June 10, 1991. This eerie premonition from Laura Palmer […]

TV REVIEW: ‘Better Call Saul’ – ‘Chicanery’

Spoiler Warning for Season 3, Episode 5 of “Better Call Saul,” as well as all seasons of “Breaking Bad.” There is just something about a crazy family rivalry, specifically two lawyer brothers, that makes for some truly great television. In each of my previous reviews for this series, I have stated just how much I […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Alien: Covenant’ is an exceedingly comfortable, if polarizing middle ground franchise binder

“Alien: Covenant” has been getting me through my life as of late. Recently, with the unexpected passing of my grandfather, who acted as a father-figure in my life, I’ve been working toward the payoff of seeing “Alien: Covenant” following my exams. I didn’t care whether it was good or bad, I just needed the release […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’ never meshes into anything worth noting

If you were to listen to common complaints of many medieval-era films, you would come to believe that the “Lord of The Rings” series was the first and only movie to ever do it right, given how much people love to compare every movie with a sword to the Peter Jackson trilogy. In fact, it’s been […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Snatched’ is a sad stab at comedy

I can’t say I particularly like Amy Schumer. Sure, I liked “Trainwreck” and find a few of her skits on her television show funny, but I’ve never fully gotten on the Amy Schumer train for more than about a week in 2014. That being said, I don’t actively despise her like many people do. While […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Guardians of the Galaxy, Vol. 2’ is rousing Marvel spectacle of the most fun kind

Dear friends, I apologize for the tardiness of this review. I have spent the past week with my family after the sudden, unexpected and tragic passing of my grandfather, who acted as a major father figure in my life. If this isn’t a good enough excuse for you, then I don’t know what you want […]

A Place Both Wonderful and Strange: Revisiting “Twin Peaks”

On May 21st, “Twin Peaks,” one of the most celebrated and influential television series of all time makes its return to the small screen. On a surface level, this does not seem that out of the ordinary, what with series such as “Full House,” “The X-Files,” “24” and “Prison Break” all making their return after […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Voice from the Stone’ is a gripping, slow-burn descent

Sometimes, I miss seeing some key movies in theaters, whether it be a large blockbuster like “The Fate of the Furious,” or smaller indie films like “Your Name,” I often find myself with too little time and/or money to catch every single movie I want to see in theaters. Yet, strangely, I find myself reviewing […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Sleight’ is an absolutely fascinating mixture of two opposing genres

I like to consider genre to be comparable to the construct of gender, and in my own eyes, I don’t see any reason to work within a strict constraint of it, though I often do abide by said constraints due to personal feelings, but there’s nothing saying someone else can’t be all over and in-between […]

GAMING REVIEW: ‘The Walking Dead: A New Frontier’ – ‘Thicker Than Water’

Warning: Spoilers for “Thicker Than Water” and previous episodes of Telltale’s “The Walking Dead” follow. Up until this episode, season three of Telltale’s “The Walking Dead” has not felt like it has been quite on the same level as its predecessors. The first three episodes were all fine, but “Thicker Than Water” brings the tough […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘The Circle’ is a disastrous misfire of epic proportions

I really love James Ponsoldt. If you are unaware of him by his name, he’s the filmmaker behind such indie hits like “Smashed,” “The Spectacular Now” and “The End of the Tour,” all three are fabulously moving indies that inspire as much faith in the prospect of indie film as it does raw emotion. Naturally, […]
