Spoiler-Free Warcraft Movie Review

  In light of some of the incredibly negative reviews Warcraft has garnered, I’m going to share my thoughts on both the good and the bad. While there were certainly plenty of things the film could have done better (like any film, really), it…

A Spoiler-Free Crash Course On The Warcraft Universe

Note: There’s a lot than can (and has) been written on this subject, but I noticed that virtually all the articles I was seeing tended to shrug off the concernĀ of spoilers on the basis that the franchise is over 20 years old by now….

Spoiler Free Review of The Forest

The Forest felt like it squandered a lot of potential. It’s a movie that felt as if it really could have been scary if handled differently. Natalie Dormer played twin sisters, a wild-child school teacher (Jess) who went missing from her teaching post in…

Deadpool Is The (Anti)Hero We’ve Been Waiting For

The red band Deadpool trailer was released this week to a cacophonous explosion of fan love. It’s every bit as foul-mouthed and fun as long-time fans could have hoped for, and more than makes up for the limp noodle of disappointment that was Wolverine‘s…

Friends Don’t Let Friends Watch Unfriended – A Spoiler-Free Review

Ben Affleck getting cast as Batman in the upcoming Batman vs Superman film has–as one could easily predict–sent shock waves of rage through the internet. I get it. Really, I do. His acting credits are very mixed, with some spectacular lows dragging down many…
