• ‘The Mandalorian’ Episode 5 Review: Star Wars Is Dewback, Baby!

    
 There are so many beautiful scenes that will tug on your nostalgic strings in the fifth episode of The Mandalorian, it would almost be considered gratuitous if it wasn’t done so organically well. None of it feels extra, it just feels right. Warning: There are spoilers past this point. As soon as Mando steps […]

  • ‘Dusk Diver’ Review: Taiwan Takes The Spotlight In Anime-Themed Brawler

    
 Having lived and worked in Taiwan for over half a decade, I was very excited for the release of Dusk Diver on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and PC.

  • ‘Loserthink’ Review: Scott Adams Returns With Another Non-Dilbert Book

    
 Growing up in the 90s, I was all too familiar with the famous comic strip Dilbert. However, being an elementary school student at the time, its workplace humor wasn’t as appealing to me as, say, Garfield‘s lasagna-loving antics. It wasn’t until my teenage years that I begin to appreciate Dilbert creator Scott Adams’ humor, […]

  • ‘The Mandalorian’ Episode 4 Review: Return Of The World-Building

    
 Another week, another satisfying episode of The Mandalorian goes by. The fourth chapter of Disney’s popular Star Wars spin-off is directed by none other than Jurassic World and Black Mirror actress Bryce Dallas Howard. Luckily, she was given a better script to work with than her father Ron Howard was when he directed the […]

  • ‘The Mandalorian’ Episode 3 Review: A Live-Action Cowboy Bebop

    
 The Mandalorian returns with an exciting third installment this week. At the end of my review for the second episode, I said that this show has officially become mandatory viewing. Luckily, episode three confirmed that statement. From the beginning, the series has worn its spaghetti western roots on its sleeve, but episode three takes […]

  • Review: Frozen 2 Paints a Beautiful, Meandering Picture

    
 Disney just hasn’t been able to let Frozen go. While it seemed like audiences were starting to feel franchise fatigue after the poor reception of Olaf’s Frozen Adventure (which, to be fair, was mostly a negative reaction to it being haphazardly tacked onto Coco), the House of Mouse is back with yet another installment […]

  • ‘The Mandalorian’ Episode 2 Review: Baby Yoda Steals the Show

    
 At this point, you’re officially missing out if you’re not watching The Mandalorian. I had high praise for the first episode of the Disney Plus series, but I had concerns that the team behind the new show wouldn’t be able to maintain its quality. The second episode obliterates those concerns. Baby Yoda was introduced […]

  • Review: Strange Planet Makes a Successful Leap from Screen to Page in New Book

    
 The decline of newspapers has forced the media landscape to change drastically over the past decade. Almost nowhere is this more evident than in the world of comic strips. Staples of the funny pages, such as Peanuts, Garfield, and Dilbert, still have their place. But even they don’t have the reach they used to. […]

  • Review: Pokémon Sword and Shield is a Conflicting Experience

    
 Mainline entries in the Pokémon series have finally made their debut on the Nintendo Switch with Pokémon Sword and Shield, but instead of being a cause for celebration, the ceremonious occasion has been rife with controversy. First, it was announced that the games would neither feature nor allow the transfer of every Pokémon in […]
