Aquaman - Review

Image
My experience with the DCU is not great. The Arrowverse over on The CW is the DC Universe that I love. The movies have been hit and miss since Man Of Steel. Aquaman is the latest chapter, and it is relatively pleasing for the most part.

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse - Review

Image
Every now and then comes a film so spectacular that you can't stop thinking about it. Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verseis that movie. It is a visually stunning film, with a great soundtrack, strong story and some of the best character development ever seen in an animated film. You remember when you see a movie this good.

2018-2019 Arrowverse Roundup - Elseworlds - Review

Image
This review covers this week's episodes of The Flash, Arrow, and Supergirl. They told a 3 part story called Elseworlds, so this review will treat them as one story. My reviews for this week's episodes of Legends Of Tomorrow and Black Lightning can be found right here.

Each year the Arrowverse shows all crossover for one big event. Every year they get bigger and better. This year was no exception.

*NOTE* The review for Elseworlds will be in a separate post. This one contains the mid-season finales for Legends Of Tomorrowand Black Lightning. I do realize that Black Lightningis not part of the Arrowverse, but neither was Supergirl, until it was....

This week there were some shocking revelations, set ups, and truly emotional moments! The midseason finales are upon us!

You can read all of this season's Arrowverse* reviews right here.

*Yes, I know Black Lightningis not in the Arrowverse officially. But neither was Supergirl...until it was. I am including it here for convenience sake.

The team finally found out who Agent Libery was, but so did Manchester Black. Him infiltrating Lockwood's home was a fantastic bit of television. Things got very tense. The way they incorporated J'onn's struggle to save Manchester was nice too. Manchester is 100% being used to further J'onn's journey, but it has been ente…

Doctor Who - Episode 11.09 - It Takes You Away

I do not have a definitive ranking of episodes this season, and while I don't think anything will beat "Rosa", the penultimate episode of the season "It Takes You Away" is about as good as it gets. The way it started, I didn't think it would be. Then it slowly won me over, until I was completely enthralled. I wish more TV did that.
