The Dark Tower is a Strange Mix of Formulaic Tropes & Refreshingly Original Concepts with a Solid Execution (Review)

This week it’s The Dark Tower, one of the new batch of Stephen King adaptations heading our way.  I was looking forward to this one. Though I stopped reading him before the Dark Tower books came out, I’ve always had a fondness for King.  And there was something about this film.  Usually it’s easy to watch movies with a critical eye and keep a list of strong points and weak points throughout.  But when I got to the end of The Dark Tower, I realised I hadn’t been paying attention to that at all.  I had been completely immersed. That’s usually a good sign. Read more

Kubo and The Two Strings: Every Single Frame in This Movie was Gorgeous [Review]

Kubo and The Two Strings: Every Single Frame in This Movie was Gorgeous [Review]

It’s a weird thing these days going into a film where I haven’t seen it all hyped to death. I’d seen trailers for Kubo and the Two Strings but I really didn’t know what it was about.  I didn’t go in knowing what i09 thought of it and it wasn’t blasted all over Imagur.  There just wasn’t much opinion to sort through beforehand, so I felt a little unprepared to actually see the film.  It was like  because I was going in blind and all my other senses were heightened.  That made the whole thing that much better.  What a wonderful film – I’m going to gush this whole review, fair warning.

Reaction Videos Need to Die Because They are Narcissistic, Fabricated & Pretentious

I understand that the future (or the “now”) of internet culture is fascinated with younger people watching others who are watching something else… The youth of today would prefer to watch someone else’s gameplay footage, or observe their “emotional” experience as they REACT to the latest episode of The Walking Dead – or hell – how they REACT to the new trailer for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. When will this stupid shit stop?  Read more
