  • Review: Don’t Believe The Hype, ‘The Haunting Of Bly Manor’ Is As Lifeless As A Corpse

    
 When The Haunting of Hill House premiered on Netflix in 2018, I was one of many viewers shouting its praise from the rooftop. As a horror aficionado, I appreciated how it merged the genre with a thoughtful approach to family drama and social commentary, whilst still never losing sight of its horror roots. Created, […]

  • Review: ‘Crash Bandicoot 4’ Fails To Move The Series Forward

    
 The Crash Bandicoot series seems like it’s been warped into hyperdrive as of late. Not only did the original trilogy receive a massive makeover that was so successful it revived fellow platforming series Spyro, but it even led to somewhat of a renaissance of remakes including Crash’s own Team Racing game. Finally, with his […]

  • Review: ‘Kirby Fighters 2’ Is A Smash Bros. Clone, But Is That A Bad Thing?

    
 Everyone’s favorite pink puff, Kirby, is back on the Nintendo Switch! But if you’re expecting a proper follow-up to 2018’s Kirby Star Allies, you’ll need to temper your expectations. Kirby Fighters 2 is instead a follow-up to the 3DS downloadable title, Kirby Fighters Deluxe, which itself was an expansion on a mini-game from the […]

  • Review: ‘Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous’ Is A Boring Mess Of A Show

    
 When Michael Crichton first began writing the novel Jurassic Park, he probably knew it would be popular, but it’s hard to imagine even he would have predicted it becoming one of the most well-known and profitable media franchises in the world, rivaling even that of Star Wars and Marvel.

  • Review: Is ‘Super Mario 3D All-Stars’ Everything We Hoped For?

    
 It’s finally here. After years of waiting and months of rumors, Super Mario 3D All-Stars has arrived. The moment Nintendo announced the surprise release of not one, not two, but three of the greatest 3D platformers of all time, and Mario titles no less, in one package, was a surreal moment. It felt both […]

  • Review: Does ‘Paper Mario: Origami King’ Take The Throne?

    
 Given his consistent choice in wardrobe, you could be forgiven for not knowing that Mario is a man who wears many different hats. Over the years he has starred in countless spin-offs, some of which, like Mario Kart, have gone on to become full-fledged series in their own rights. And others, like Mario Paint, […]

  • ‘Mulan’ Movie Review: Disney Needs To Do Some Reflection, Dishonors Animated Classic With Live-Action Remake

    
 Full disclosure: I am an avid fan of Disney’s 1998 animated classic Mulan. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched and rewatched the movie over the course of my life – perhaps a thousand times if not more. My sisters and I memorized every line of dialogue and every lyric to every […]

 The Secret Garden is one of the most frequently revisited novels of all time. Written by Frances Hodgson Burnett and originally published in 1911, the book has gone one to receive several film, television, and even stage adaptations.

  • Live-Action Sonic The Hedgehog: Good Or Bad?

    
 Video game movies. They’ve been around since time immemorial, and they’ll be around long after we’ve all passed on to higher realms of consciousness. And if one thing has held true for every film adaptation of a video game, it’s that they always tend to suck in one way or another. Even the half-decent […]
