The Flash Season One Review — TV SERIES REVIEW

Grant Gustin as Barry Allen in The Flash

Man, what a season it has been for The Flash. For a first season, I was very impressed. I didn’t know how to feel about it with it being an extension of Arrow. One show is really dark and tries to ground itself in some form of realism and the other embraces the comic-book feel. It definitely had its missteps along the way but for the most part, The Flash hit all the right notes. Continue reading

Arrow Season Three Review – TV SERIES REVIEW

Stephen Amell as Oliver Queen in Arrow

Oh, where even to start. From that first line, you probably have an idea of where this review is going to go. Maybe you don’t. This season has definitely had its up and downs but underneath it all, was there a story worth telling? That is the question I ask myself when looking back on an entire year of a TV series. The Flash has had a pretty darn good freshman year itself. But with the awesome finale last season, could Arrow still have the same quality it has had for the past two seasons? Continue reading

Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance) — MOVIE REVIEW

Michael Keaton leads a star-studded cast in the terrific Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)

Michael Keaton plays an actor who is trying to escape his image as a superhero from a film series he acted in over 20 years ago. So…Michael Keaton is playing himself. Birdman mirrors Batman in so many different ways, and that is intentional. But that is only part of th Continue reading

The Imitation Game — MOVIE REVIEW

Alan Turing and company race to break Germany’s encrypted coded messages in The Imitation Game.

I can just picture all of the Academy Award nominations this film is going to get. It has pretty much all of the necessary ingredients for an Oscar winner. It has great performances, a good script, and it targets an older audience (like the Academy voters). Plus, extra points for being a historical and tragic true story. The Imitation Game is definitely going to get award recognition, and rightfully so. Continue reading

Arrow “Corto Maltese” — TV EPISODE REVIEW


David Ramsey, Stephen Amell, and Colton Haynes in Arrow

 Arrow has just been getting better and better as every season progresses. But the second season was so intense and filled with so much drama, I think it will be hard for season three to match it. And even though the iconic R’as al Ghul will eventually show up as the big bad this season, it will be hard to match the villain of last season. Manu Bennett killed it as Slade Wilson hopped up on Mirakuru. And this season is off to a slow start as well. Even season two started the same way, but I just hope this season gets going the previous year did. Continue reading

Begin Again — MOVIE REVIEW

Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightley in Begin Again

Music can be a funny thing. It is an art, of course. But that doesn’t stop individuals like myself from being stuck in a moment when listening to different kinds of music. I can put on my iPod and listen to every single song on it. But for a few key songs, I can imagine where I was when I first experienced that song. The songs that move you as a person or have an impact on your life will always be important to you. There is another thing to appreciate about music. You can sense and feel the raw emotion certain artists put into their music. You can listen and just know that all of their heart and soul was put into that very song. They put every ounce of themselves into that song, and they just want to share it. I love artists that don’t give in to the temptation of money or fame. I love the artists that know the music that makes them unique and sticks with it, no matter how long it takes. And this is an element that is explored by John Carney in his new movie Begin Again. Continue reading

24: Live Another Day (SPOILERS) — TV SEASON REVIEW

Tate Donovan and Kiefer Sutherland in 24: Live Another Day

When 24: Live Another Day was first announced, I was not pleased. I had still been royally ticked off with the entire last season, including the way they chose to end it. I didn’t want more of that garbage. But what I failed to do was think on the terrific six seasons that it had (6 + 8 were the bad ones). Just like a bad breakup, you think of the bad moments and not the good ones that had you involved in the first place. But then the Super Bowl teaser came out and it had me excited for 24 once again. It was strange. Just hearing Jack Bauer’s yell had me extremely excited for the new season. I just hoped it was done right. Continue reading

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes — MOVIE REVIEW


Andy Serkis as Caesar in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

So back in 2011, I went into Rise of the Planet of the Apes expecting a silly movie about apes. I went in thinking that it had the possibility of being but at the end of the day, it would still be a movie about apes. I walked out of that one pleasantly surprised. Not only because I usually dislike James Franco in most of his movies and he wasn’t so bad that time around, but because it was just a good movie. Plus, it had one badass moment that still gives me goosebumps to this day. But now it is 3 years later, and it is time for the sequel. I kind of went in to this movie with the same mindset as before. After all, it’s still a movie about a bunch of apes. But I was so wrong to go in with that mindset. This movie deserves much more respect because it really is that good. Continue reading

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.

BY: TIM MORSE
June 14, 2014


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
