• ‘The Mandalorian’ Episode 6 Review: Bill Burr In Space

    
 The sixth episode of The Mandalorian is another self-contained story chronicling the adventures of everyone’s favorite bounty hunter on the run. Directed by Rick Famuyiwa, this latest installment of the Star Wars spin-off series spins a good yarn. Baby Yoda plays an even smaller role here than it did in the previous episode, but […]

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

  • ‘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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]
