The Boys Season 2 finale

As show finales goes, “The Boys” season 2 finale is one of the best in television history. Episode 8 titled “What I Know” was jam-packed with twists, turns and action. The highly satisfying end to season 2 was also full of zingers and indirect digs at the perpetrators of the current racial divide.

'Possessor Uncut' Movie Review: A Modern Day Body Snatching Movie

Possessor Uncut Jennifer Jason Leigh Andrea Riseborough NEON

Director Brandon Cronenberg is certainly related to the King of Venereal Horror - David Cronenberg (SCANNERS, THE FLY, DEAD RINGERS). Brandon's new film, POSSESSOR is a highly-stylized sci-fi thriller about the loss of human connection through technology. Brandon Cronenberg is certainly a new visionary director to look out for.

'Mulan' 2020 Movie Review

Mulan 2020 movie review

MULAN's cinematography is worthy of a big screen viewing but given the current pandemic, Disney made the right decision sending it to Disney+ as a premium access choice for families to enjoy. The live-action adaptation of the 1998 animated movie is a totally different vibe and tone with many changes. MULAN has it all - majestic landscapes, gorgeous costumes, a great cast and a great message for young girls.

Review: 'Bill and Ted Face The Music' But Not The Times

Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter in Bill & Ted Face The Music

BILL & TED'S EXCELLENT ADVENTURE was quintessential 80s, and for the time it was a novel concept but the 2.0 version feels out of date in BILL & TED FACE THE MUSIC. However, Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter are most excellent as Bill and Ted especially when they meet other versions of themselves in the future, but their offspring were mere carbon copies of the original dudes that never catches on. There's one new character that steals the show.
