The Red Sea Diving Resort - Review

Image
The latest Netflix film, The Red Sea Diving Resort, attempts to provide a powerful commentary on refugees by taking true events and dramatizing them so they work in a movie. The wonderful cast is the only reason this film makes it to the finish line.

The Boys - Season 1 - Review

Image
The market is littered with every type of superhero story and comic book adaptation available. You can find one on almost any channel, streaming service or studio that makes pretend for a living. Superhero projects are the modern day western - they come built in with a guaranteed audience.  It used to just be Marvel and DC in the game, but now all types are making their way to a screen. The Boys on Amazon Prime is the latest example of that, and it is unlike anything you've seen in the genre before.

Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood - Review

Image
Sometimes movies supersede being merely entertainment and become and event. The Avengers films are like that. So areStar Wars movies. But outside of that genre, there are only a handful of "event" films. Quentin Tarantino's movies are "events". His latest, Once Upon A Time... In Hollywood, is an unexpectedly sweet fairy tale that serves as a love story to 1960s Hollywood.

Fancasting THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY TV Show

Image
The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy is getting a TV series adaptation on Hulu. Hitchhiker's has been adapted to screen before with different results. The last one was a movie in 2005 starring Martin Freeman. The book is one of my favorite books ever, and the story means a lot to me. So I am going to do a fancast of the TV series. Actors who I think would be great as the characters. This is a pipe dream, so I am obviously not expecting this to happen. The only criteria I have is that the people I choose are alive and currently working in the industry. I am only going to do some of the more prominent roles, because casting every character in the series will be tedious.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe - Phase 4 Breakdown

The Lion King - Review

Image
The Lion King is very special to a lot of people. So the concept of a hyper-realistic CGI remake had people talking. Let's get this out of the way though: Regardless of what you think of this one it doesn't "ruin" the original. The 1994 classic will always stand on its own in a bubble, regardless of what comes after. The sub-par sequels didn't tarnish that film. Neither should this.
