While delivering some emotional satisfaction, the third Grinch film adaptation, produced by Illumination Entertainment and aptly named “The Grinch,” brings nothing new to the table and is only for children who have not seen previous versions of the green guy’s tale. As always, the grumpy green Grinch (voiced b...

When I first heard of Snapchat, a widely popular social media network, launching original shows that would appear under their “Discover” tab, I was instantly intrigued. This didn’t feel completely out of the ordinary. Of course, major international social networks, such as Snapchat, would w...

While not hitting as hard as its predecessor, “Creed II,” sequel-spinoff of the “Rocky” franchise, packs enough heart and action to prove that the straightforward Rocky formula still works. After losing to the World Heavyweight Champion in “Creed,” Adonis Creed (the ever-charismatic Michael B. Jorda...

J.J. Abrams’ new “Overlord” delivers an explosive mash-up between a sensitive World War II story and a ruthless splatterfest fit to send anyone running home to their mama. The plot follows four paratroopers on the eve of D-Day as they must take down a radio tower in the middle of a French vil...

November 11, 2018

Venom is one of my favorite super-villains because I love how simple his character is. A righteous reporter corrupted by an alien with only the motive of eating whatever is in sight out of pure instinct.

This review contains minor spoilers from an early scene in the movie. October is always a time of the year that I look forward to.

If I could convey one thing to Netflix, it would be this: I’m so tired of the constant repetition of premises in your “original” series. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely loved “Black Mirror”and “Altered Carbon”, both Netflix originals built off of the premise of a damaged, technolo...
