Arrow “Streets of Fire” — TV EPISODE REVIEW


John Barrowman as Malcolm Merlyn in Arrow

Arrow has just been kicking ass this season. I was hesitant when they started the season, because I knew they were going to be setting up the Oliver versus Slade showdown. I was worried because I didn’t know if they had it in them to do it right. But, I didn’t need to be hesitant because they have just killed it all season. That is mostly due to the very good performances by Stephen Amell and Manu Bennett. Tonight’s penultimate episode, “Streets of Fire,” really sets things up for an explosive finale. Continue reading

Oculus — MOVIE REVIEW

Karen Gillan and Brenton Thwaites in Oculus

Oculus is technically classified as a horror movie. But, I think it gets put into that classification on a technicality. Yes, it may have a horror movie feel to it. But I’m not completely sure it should be considered a horror movie. This movie doesn’t rely on cheap tricks to try and scare you to jump out of your seat. It doesn’t employ cheap tactics to make you scream. It doesn’t have the character searching for something with eerie music in the background when all of a sudden another character appears right behind them kind of moments. Oculus doesn’t care about scaring you. It cares about messing with your head. And boy, it certainly does it’s job. Continue reading

300: Rise of an Empire — MOVIE REVIEW


Eva Green as Artemisia in 300: Rise of an Empire

So this is a weird movie to review. I wasn’t a huge fan of the first 300 film, so I went into this knowing that I’d probably hate the shit out of it. This is a blog. I can swear; sue me. I felt like an outsider with the first one because I was surrounded by idiots who loved it. They loved the action, the blood, and the slow-motion sex. Also, that Gerard Butler guy, who has gone on to do….The Bounty Hunter and Gamer. Great movie role choices, Gerard. I just didn’t like it. I thought it overused the slow motion action scenes with the fake looking blood spewing out. I understand that it is a total guy movie. All testosterone and guys with badass voices killing people. I get the appeal; I just look for more in terms of story and characters in a movie. Continue reading
