REVIEW: The Walking Dead, Season 9 – Episode 13: Chokepoint

Featured Image Credit: NowTV In my opinion, excluding the whole anticipation of the new The Walking Dead villains, the Whisperers, This episode showcased the biggest moment in the second half of season: Beta v Daryl. Starting off after the events of Episode 12 (Guardians), Daryl is using Alpha group’s essential tool (the dead) against them, […]

Review: Private Life

Review: Private Life

Netflix are often incapable of creating solid dramatic roles for those in their talent pool. However, Paul Giamatti has saved several movies before, and he seems to have done the same for Private Life: a drama that could have been riddled with issues is saved entirely by strong performances and solid direction.   Possibly the biggest strength of Private […]

Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season One: Witch (22nd Anniversary Retrospective)

Review: Isn’t It Romantic

Review: Isn’t It Romantic

Because who wouldn’t want a deconstruction of the romantic comedy genre starring Rebel Wilson? Yes, it seems Netflix has returned to their old, soul-crushing ways of producing and financing mediocre content and then dropping it onto their platform, announcing it a day before it’s released. But that’s a system that works for them. It happened […]

Review: Shirkers

Review: Shirkers

If there’s one medium of film Netflix can get right, it’s documentaries.  Icarus has become a modern classic, as politically relevant as it was upon its release just two years ago. Get Me Roger Stone has followed a similar process also, so it does seem like Netflix have what it takes to make a great documentary feature. Shirkers looks to […]
