When a beloved franchise gets picked up for a revival or reboot, one of two things happens. Either the fanbase gets super protective and starts hating on the new show or they await anxiously optimistic and eager to meet with those fan favourites again after all those years. I fall in the latter group as … Continue reading ‘That ’90s Show’: Season 1 Is Nostalgic In All The Right Ways.
‘Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery’: A Massively Fun Mystery Sequel.
The 2019 hit 'Knives Out' getting the franchise treatment may be one of the best things to happen on this miserable planet. I can watch Daniel Craig's Benoit Blanc solve mysteries forever. If it wasn't clear enough by now, the original movie is one of my favourite movies in recent memory. The announcement of two … Continue reading ‘Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery’: A Massively Fun Mystery Sequel.
‘Bros’ Is A Very Queer, Very Safe Foolproof Rom-Com.
Romantic comedies, you either love them or you cannot stand them. I would say I have a soft spot for them. There is something comforting about watching a heterosexual love story unfold from cheesy meet-cutes to dating montages to a one-sided breakup to grand gestures and happy endings. It's formulaic and safe and I love … Continue reading ‘Bros’ Is A Very Queer, Very Safe Foolproof Rom-Com.
‘The Bob’s Burgers Movie’ Is A Sizzling Combo Of Laughs, Charm and Complete and Utter Joy.
Whenever a traditionally animated movie miraculously makes it's way to theatres, I will almost always check it out. There is an unbeatable satisfaction about watching 2D animation flourish on the big-screen that CG-animation could never achieve. That being said, CG-animation is obviously stunning in it's own way but it should go without saying that both … Continue reading ‘The Bob’s Burgers Movie’ Is A Sizzling Combo Of Laughs, Charm and Complete and Utter Joy.
‘The Bad Guys’ Is Actually A Blast, I Swear.
Dreamworks Animation has changed its image so much that it's gotten to the point where I was dumbfounded when I saw that 'The Bad Guys' was in fact, a project of theirs. With most of their recent movies being noticeably targeted heavily towards children instead of families, the company lost a bit of that instant … Continue reading ‘The Bad Guys’ Is Actually A Blast, I Swear.
‘Tom & Jerry’ Embark on Their Most Mediocre Adventure Yet.
Growing up in the 2000's meant growing up with plenty of live-action / animation hybrid movies. The most beloved cartoon icons all had one, from the hilariously adult 'Scooby Doo' movies to the fever dreams that were 'Garfield: The Movie' and 'Looney Tunes: Back in Action'. As a child I had always wondered why 'Tom … Continue reading ‘Tom & Jerry’ Embark on Their Most Mediocre Adventure Yet.

“The Kissing Booth” Movies Broke Me | SPOILER RANT
Netflix has released the sequel to the problematic rom-com The Kissing Booth a few days ago. It's safe to say that no matter how cheesy or problematic these movies are, they have an audience. They have two easy demographics, the hopeless romantic tweens and teens and the film buffs who want to roast the crap … Continue reading “The Kissing Booth” Movies Broke Me | SPOILER RANT
