One of the goals I set out to achieve for myself and this site was to experience more anime. Not only am I watching it more frequently but I've made a list full of upcoming shows and movies planning to cover them. Not only is this beneficial to me as I get to watch more … Continue reading ‘To Every You I’ve Loved Before’ / ‘To Me, The One Who Loved You’ Anime Double Feature REVIEW.

April ’23 // Movie Review Round-Up (‘Renfield’, ‘Missing’ & ‘Polite Society’)
As promised, I'm reviewing more movies this year, by doing shared posts with shorter, more direct reviews. I discovered some great gems in March and now with April's fair share of movies, it's safe to say that the tradition continues strongly. It has been a learning experience to cover movies that aren't the flashiest blockbuster … Continue reading April ’23 // Movie Review Round-Up (‘Renfield’, ‘Missing’ & ‘Polite Society’)
My Hero Academia SPOILERS // Season 6 Part 2: ‘Dark Deku’ Arc!
As 'My Hero Academia' enters its Final Act, the world that it has crafted starts to come undone as the persona of the superhero becomes the very thing that destroys it.

‘Evil Dead Rise’: A Blood-Soaked Trip That’s Oh So Groovy.
The blood-soaked 'Evil Dead' franchise is perhaps one of the most inspirational horror franchises there are. From the charming, low-budget flair of the original 1981 film to the fiercely unhinged sequel and finishing with a boldly comedic film that defies the rules of a trilogy. What Sam Raimi accomplished with this trilogy is not just … Continue reading ‘Evil Dead Rise’: A Blood-Soaked Trip That’s Oh So Groovy.
‘The Mandalorian’ Season 3: The Galactic Western Returns!
The world of 'Star Wars' continues to grow exponentially outside of its episodic films in the form of endless television entertainment on Disney+.

‘Suzume’: A Makoto Shinkai Standout That Subverts His Formula.
Movies like Makoto Shinkai's groundbreaking hit 'Your Name' are a lightning-in-a-bottle situation in modern cinema.

a nonsensical, medium-rare review of netflix’s ‘BEEF’.
*I recognize the horrible comments and so-called jokes that David Choe has made and how horrible they are. The statement pushed by Yeun, Wong and creator Lee Sung Jin is incredibly disappointing. I do not stand by that statement or by Choe, I am purely writing a review for a show that I personally loved. … Continue reading a nonsensical, medium-rare review of netflix’s ‘BEEF’.
‘The Super Mario Bros. Movie’ Is EVERYTHING!
In the new siege that the video-game industry has led in the Hollywood Kingdom, it seemed that most companies threw their hat in the ring, all but one and that is Nintendo. We've had adaptations from PlayStation (Uncharted), Konami (Castlevania), Sega (Sonic The Hedgehog 1 & 2), NaughtyDog (The Last Of Us) and even Warner … Continue reading ‘The Super Mario Bros. Movie’ Is EVERYTHING!

Watching The ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ Movie Despite Never Having Played The Game.
The fear that would rush over me when someone would ask me to join one of their 'Dungeons & Dragons' campaigns is severe. The thought of sitting down at a table for hours on end participating in something that requires this much attention from me is horrifying. If you don't know by now, this has … Continue reading Watching The ‘Dungeons & Dragons’ Movie Despite Never Having Played The Game.
