I was once told that Tinder is, “nothing more than the new bar for today’s dating scene.”   More specifically, this was in a tipsy, 2019 rant from my girlfriend’s college roommate on modern love – still very much in a pre-pandemic world at the time. If dating in an Instagram-driven culture wasn’t messy enough, COVID-19 perhaps made it even messier. Most would agree that it’s easier than ever to find love online, yet it’s become...

Oh my god, Peacemaker is back? The second half of James Gunn’s Peacemaker is perfect DCEU television. While the first half of the season didn’t always run smoothly (Peacemaker Park 1), in the second half this show is a perfect piece of ultra-violent superhero fare. If you are at all curious about this journey of a misguided hero, I urge you to check out Peacemaker. For returning fans, you’ll be more than happy with how...

Disney +’s recent success that came with  The Mandalorian made The Book of Boba Fett highly anticipated but for more reasons than one fell short of expectations. The bar had been raised last year when Luke Skywalker made a triumphant return in the Finale and though Book of Boba Fett had some really amazing moments as a whole the project felt subpar. As a lifelong Star Wars fan, especially for the original trilogy, I felt...

When Netflix paved the way for content streaming, a new term was born to describe this rapid consumption of original series: “binge tv”. Instead of waiting for new episodes every week, you can watch them all at once, like one big movie. Now following Paramount+’s debut, all major studios have officially launched themselves into a streaming war. The deciding factor for who will win this competition is the one with the freshest series out on...

The Suicide Squad is one of my favorite big-screen experiences of the last year and now it’s back specifically not on the big screen. One of the biggest surprise announcements in the DCEU is the announcement of a spin-off from a movie about lower-tier supervillains. As a fan of both James Gunn his more recent work on The Suicide Squad, this was one of my most anticipated shows of the year. While we’re only halfway...

The biggest show on cable television Yellowstone promised high action in its season four finale but fell short of expectations set by how well the series has been in the past. The land battle over one of the largest ranches in Montana and the excentric family who runs it has captivated viewers of all demographics that can’t get enough. Each installation of the show has done a good job of closing down chapters in its...

Another Disney + show that makes you need to buy into its service so that you can stay caught up to the Marvel Cinematic Universe canon. While the MCU has struggled with their TV show add-ons they have been mostly enjoyable. Hawkeye is the latest outing and so far the best. With the last episode just airing last week, we thought it would be a good opportunity to give those yet to jump on a...

Another show from Mike Flanagan? Yes, please! For those unfamiliar with Midnight Mass’s creator and director, Mike Flanagan, he has made some of the greatest horror films and shows in the past decade. His resume goes from Oculus to Doctor Sleep, and one of Netflix’s best miniseries The Haunting of Hill House. With Midnight Mass now out on Netflix, it’s easy to say that this master filmmaker has topped himself yet again while also making...

With the wild success of The Mandalorian on Disney Plus many have been waiting for a Marvel show to have a similar impact. Loki is a valiant effort to recreate The Mandalorian effect and does come close with strong acting, directing, and music. With that said, unrefined story structure, and sometimes rough animations get in the way.  Synopsis Loki follows a alterternate dimension version of the God of Mischief (often referred to as a Variant...
