Game of Thrones Season Four — TV SEASON REVIEW


“YOU RAPED HER! YOU MURDERED HER! YOU KILLED HER CHILDREN!” –Oberyn “The Red Viper” Martell

It is a fun experience watching Game of Thrones. I don’t know how far they will deviate from the books or how they will execute certain events or scenes. Honestly, I wish I hadn’t read the books so that I could go into each season with a blank mind with no idea what is in store for me. I would be shocked when someone dies. I would get goosebumps when a character steps up. And as a reader of the books, I was still worried going into Season Four. Why? Because they had just ended Season Three on one of the biggest shocking events on TV…ever. They had gotten rid of the character viewers most likely rooted for the most. Without that aspect, would the show still be able to hold the same vibe? Would it still feel like the same show? The short answer: Yes. Continue reading

22 Jump Street — MOVIE REVIEW

PRETTY MUCH IDENTICAL TO THE FIRST MOVIE, BUT THEY KNOW IT AND ROLL WITH IT.

Jonah Hill, Ice Cube (and his “cube of ice”), and Channing Tatum in 22 Jump Street.

When I first heard that they were making a sequel to 21 Jump Street, I was annoyed. I didn’t want them to ruin a good thing and even paint the first one in a bad light if they blew it. But, I can safely say that this sequel is just as fun as the first one. And that is completely due to the two main actors, Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum. Continue reading

The Wire: Complete Series — TV SERIES REVIEW

THIS IS CONSIDERED ONE OF THE BEST SHOWS OF ALL TIME FOR A REASON.

Wendell Pierce, Dominic West, Sonja Sohn, and Clarke Peters in HBO’s The Wire

It is hard to put into words the amount of respect I have for The Wire. It is most certainly one of the most ambitious and realistic shows you will ever watch. It is a shame that it was forced to end after five seasons. There were plenty of stories left to tell and I would have loved to watch every single one of them. The Wire is kind of like a book, in a way. There are numerous characters that fill up this story and it leaves you with just the right amount of answers. Continue reading

Chef — MOVIE REVIEW

Emjay Anthony, Jon Favreau, and Sofia Vergara in Chef

It has become kind of a cool thing to hate on Jon Favreau. People started to dislike him for giving us Iron Man 2. Others hate him for numerous other reasons. But he has become his own underdog and this new movie of his kind of feels like it’s an underdog too. Chef tells us the story about one fantastic chef and the road he travels when he has to start fresh. This concept has been done before, but Favreau’s take on it feels brand new. Continue reading

BLAST FROM THE PAST: Star Wars Original Trilogy — MOVIE REVIEW

Possibly the most iconic moment in cinematic history.

So I decided to finally getting around to watching the films everyone has been talking about since I was a kid. Star Wars. These movies have been cultural phenomenons for decades. Countless references get made to these films in movies and TV shows we watch today. I had attempted to watch these movies a long time ago, but I only got through a portion of the first one. I remembered nothing from it later on. Years later, I attempted to watch Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace and was turned off to Star Wars in general. I was not a fan of the first installment of the new trilogy, so I never had to the slightest desire to go back and watch the originals. Well, that changed and I finally watched them all. In one day. I am not going to go in-depth with the story of each one of these. They have been out for over 30 years now. If you don’t know the story, then I’m sorry but that’s your problem. I will just give a brief overlook on my thoughts of each one. And yeah, if you haven’t seen these movies yet, there will be loads of spoilers here.

So…let’s get started. Continue reading

Edge of Tomorrow — MOVIE REVIEW

Emily Blunt and Tom Cruise in Edge of Tomorrow

I don’t know what sold me more on this movie. Tom Cruise or Emily Blunt. Neither of them had disappointed me when it comes to them starring in sci-fi movies as of yet. Tom Cruise was 2 for 2 in his sci-fi films. And Emily Blunt was 1 1/2 out of 2 in hers. I personally liked Oblivion and absolutely loved Minority Report. And when it came to Emily Blunt, I was a big fan of Looper and I kind of liked The Adjustment Bureau. But I saw Doug Liman’s name attached to direct this movie and I started to worry. The guy who did Mr. and Mrs. Smith is doing a science fiction movie? I was not excited. But the story had me hooked. It came off as a combination of Elysium and Source Code. Whether that was a good thing or a bad thing had remained to be seen. But how did this movie fare? Continue reading
