Kubo and the Two Strings is not your ordinary animated film and if you are looking for a Disney type film, this might not be for you. But I found it beautiful and heartwarming with excellent use of stop motion effects. [Read more…]
Noah and Daren really enjoyed Pete’s Dragon, and think the reimagining doesn’t harm the original, while still managing to tell an engaging (if perhaps a little overlong) story. [Read more…]
I was hooked before the first episode finished, and by the end of episode 4, “Vessel”, I’d begun to joke that in Killjoys I’d found my new Firefly… but it wasn’t until well after Season 1 had finished airing and I’d begun to really think about the show that I realized my running joke was more true than I had imagined at the time.

Five episodes in, how does the second season of Dark Matter rate against the first? Reviews on first season were mixed. The story is dark and the characters are not heroes. They do make questionable choices at time, but I find the writers handle those dilemmas well and the second season is even better than the first one. [Read more…]
Noah and Daren had high hopes for Suicide Squad, and were prepared to give DC every benefit of the doubt, thinking that maybe since all the characters weren’t as well known outside the comics aficionados that chances would be taken with them and the story. [Read more…]
Stories about ordinary people surviving and overcoming extraordinary situations are almost a dime a dozen — like apocalyptic catastrophes, supernatural disasters, and paranormal horrors — but outside of fantastical realms about costumed superheroes (or heroes in hiding), there aren’t quite as many stories about extraordinary people surviving extraordinary situations where their abilities may cause just as much harm as good (characters featured in the Marvel Netflix set of series notwithstanding).

What make Nerve work so well is it’s unpredictability with each dare. As Vee learns her embattled best friend Sydney (Emily Meade) nearly dies from a dare, she chooses to best her by winning the same dare. This is an example of why the film works. Even at the cost of true friendships, “Nerve” keeps the players wanting more. Like a drug that tears into it’s victim’s soul, nothing can stop the need for another game. It’s scary how real this movie feels. [Read more…]
You know his name. You know what sort of adventure he’s going to take you on. You know you can’t wait for the ride to start.
We’ve come to expect a certain level of increasing tension through relentless pursuit, high octane action, and fast-paced hand-to-hand combat. We know what’s coming, and we want more, and that’s what the Bourne series delivers, without fail. [Read more…]
