TV Series Review: Z Nation

  Just finished watching seasons 1 & 2 (all that is currently available) on Netflix and … I liked it! I should probably preface this by saying that I’m not really into zombies. They make no sense. I mean, sure, a disease that turns humans into ravening monsters intent upon biting other humans could be […]

“The Force Awakens” is Okay (Spoiler Warning)

Spoiler Alert: There are a few spoilers in this review. Don’t read if you plan to see the movie. After a great deal of anticipation and a weekend of watching out for spoilers on the Internet, I had my chance to watch “The Force Awakens” last night. And it was an enjoyable movie, true to […]

Movie Review: The Martian

Excellent! Watch this movie. I just got the book by Andy Weir to see if the novel adds anything to the film, but even if it doesn’t, it’s still a great story. So a guy gets stranded on Mars after the rest of his team leaves him for dead. Matt Damon performed the role to […]

TV Review: Orange is the New Black Season 3

So I just finished season 3 of Orange is the New Black and … it had its ups and downs. On the plus side, it developed a lot of minor characters in interesting ways. I liked the new corporate ownership, and how that effected things at the prison. But Piper … the woman who started […]

TV Review: Grace and Frankie Season 1

Grace and Frankie is yet another Netflix original series that pushes the envelope. Plus, they put all of season 1 online at once so you can binge watch to your heart’s content. An all-star cast of wonderful, time-tested actors comes together with a story that is funny at times, heartbreaking at others. Grace has been […]

My New Favorite Scifi Series: Sense8

I have a new all-time favorite science fiction series. Snese8, which I binge watched over the last week-and-a-half on Netflix, has ousted Babylon 5 from the coveted #1 spot that it held in my heart for over 15 years. J. Michael Straczynski had a hand in both, and there are some similarities in what I […]

TV Review: Orphan Black Season 1

Orphan Black begins with Sarah, a troubled woman with an abusive ex-boyfriend she’s trying to shake and a daughter she’s trying to get custody of. She needs money, and she’s not exactly afraid to use illegal means to get it. But she doesn’t even know what trouble is yet … In the subway, Sarah sees […]

Movie Review: San Andreas

Sometimes simplicity works. And that’s what this disaster movie was: simplicity itself. A geologist has been studying ways to predict earthquakes. Her prediction method works and … holy cow, the big one’s coming! Now she has to dodge multiple pre-shocks as she tries frantically to reach her step-daughter and save her. That’s it. That’s what […]

TV Review: Continuum Season 1

Available on Netflix Streaming, I present to you for your summer binge-watching: Continuum Season 1! This show starts off fairly well. A terrorist attack takes down a building and the people responsible are all sentenced to death. Kiera, a protector (future cop), helps with the arrest and is present at their execution. Except, things don’t […]

Movie Review: Annie

If you’re going to remake a movie like Annie, you’ve got to do it big! So when I first saw previews for this movie, my instinct was doubt. Then, when I saw the scenes between Will Stacks (Jamie Fox) and Annie (Quvenzhané Wallis) I thought it could be good to see the story updated. Though […]
