Space Force Season 1 is Bland Overall But Displays Flashes of Potential (Review)

Space Force Season 1 is Bland Overall But Displays Flashes of Potential (Review)

Netflix has had numerous hits and misses over the years when it comes to their original content. They can sweep the nation with a show like Stranger Things, and they can misfire with a show such as Fuller House. With Space Force, fans and critics thought we were getting a show similar to The Office. Maybe not filmed the same way, but similar in the sense of following a guy who is under qualified for a position who makes silly, humorous mistakes along the way. It actually isn’t a show like that at all. That doesn’t necessarily make it bad, but there is a lot of room for improvement. Read more

Like Wine, ‘Uncorked’ is a Film to Savor During These Times (Review)

Like Wine, ‘Uncorked’ is a Film to Savor During These Times (Review)

These past few weeks certainly have been challenging, stressful, and, well pick your synonym, for most people around the world. So much uncertainty and despair has left many of us isolated at home instead of being out socially, going to the movies among other things. With movie theaters closed until the curve is flattened on the current pandemic, millions, like myself, are left with streaming as the only way to watch new movies in place of our theatrical experiences at our local multiplexes. Thankfully, Netflix is still rolling out new content on a daily basis, including original movies like Uncorked, which drops today. From director Prentice Penny, this dramadey about wine and family is just what the doctor ordered during these uncertain times.

The Invisible Man Is A Terrifying Horror Film With A Tremendous Turn From Elisabeth Moss (Review)

The Invisible Man Is A Terrifying Horror Film With A Tremendous Turn From Elisabeth Moss (Review)

From Sinister in 2012 to Happy Death Day in 2017, Blumhouse Productions is a production company that prides itself on crafting low-budget horror films from a growing list of rising auteurs, although, for every masterpiece like Get Out, there’s a dud on the level of Truth or Dare. Thankfully, The Invisible Man is on the positive end of that spectrum thanks to creative direction from Leigh Whannell, a stellar lead performance from Elisabeth Moss, and a clever way of grounding the classic H.G. Wells character into our modern times. Read more

One of the most famous Austen adaptations was Amy Heckerling’s Clueless, which left audiences howling with laughter and left speechless over its creativity in modernizing Austen’s novel Emma in a mid-90s era high school in Beverly Hills, California.
