• Audiences Need to Stop Sleeping on Doctor Sleep

    
 Stephen King has seen something of a resurgence of his work as of late. While I wasn’t hugely impressed with It Chapter Two, it still managed to clean up nicely at the box office. Unfortunately, the reverse is true for King’s Doctor Sleep film adaptation – I walked away astounded by what the film […]

  • ‘Joker’ is DC’s Best Film Outing Since ‘The Dark Knight’

    
 Where does one begin with a film like Joker? When I first saw the trailers for it, I was not impressed. It looked like an indie arthouse movie to me. Not that there’s anything wrong with indie arthouse movies, but coming from a big studio like Warner Bros. with a major DC character like […]

  • AI: The Somnium Files Exceeds Expectations – Review

    
 On a cold winter day in 2012, I found myself on a bus going from Kansas City to Chicago. The world was supposed to end that year, but luckily it didn’t. During my 10-hour journey, I was accompanied by my 3DS and a little game called Zero Escape: Virtue’s Last Reward. I bought it […]

  • Review: ‘Weathering With You’ Does the Impossible

    
 In the summer of 2005, I made my monthly trek to Best Buy to peruse their DVD section. I was 15 years old then, and usually I’d have a stack of movies to choose from by the end of my hunt before whittling my options down to one. But on that day in the […]

  • Astral Chain is a Slice of Gaming Heaven

    
 There are games, and then there are games. When I first saw snippets of Astral Chain for Nintendo Switch a year ago, I thought it was just filler material to pad out Nintendo’s release schedule. The only thing that made it even remotely stand out in the lineup was the developer behind it – […]

  • It Chapter Two is the Most Faithful Stephen King Adaptation Ever, and That’s the Problem

    
 When It Chapter One was released in 2017 it took the whole world by storm – myself included. It re-ignited an appreciation for Stephen King and the horror genre as a whole. The film grossed $700 million at the box office – which is almost unheard of for a horror flick. Modern horror films […]
