A Star is Born – Review

A special thanks to Undertow Media and Warner Bros for hooking us up with a ticket to the premiere! A Star is Born isn’t a movie that I would have normally gone to see, I hoped for at best a dull but competent love story. I wasn’t really prepared for …

Venom – Review

Venom sits in an unusual movie superhero no mans land. He’s a Spider-Man character without Spider-Man, a Superhero without a franchise or a shared universe.

Mandy – Review

Mission: Impossible – Fallout – Review

These may be fighting words but I have to say Mission: Impossible – Fallout is more Bond than Bond is these days. The Mission: Impossible series from 3 onward has found its particular groove in modern action movies and the 6th installment Fallout, is no different. I remember when the …

Dark Tourist – Review

The Netflix series Dark Tourist is at equal parts lurid, voyeuristic, whimsical and emotional sometimes all at the same time. One of my favorite parts of traveling is the situations you find yourself in. The stranger the situation the better the story but this series next levels the weird AirBnB …
