Number 1: It Get’s Way too Real If you have ever seen any comedies like Love, Flaked or BoJack Horseman you would start seeing a trend in the new, more popular comedy shows. They are all horribly depressing. Atlanta isn’t any different. It can be funny, but most of the time …

    Number 1: The Hacking isn’t People Slamming the Keyboard Now you may be asking what this means. In films like Hackers, or the Matrix, or Swordfish, when people want to hack any regards, all you see is a flurry of hand movements, cheesy lines like “Aaaaaaaaand we’re in”, and lines …

Review: Sausage Party (Film)

I came into this movie expecting to be completely shocked. Half an hour in, nothing. Right at the end of the film, goddamn. Needed to wash my eyes out. If you didn’t know Sausage Party is Seth Rogen’s saucy animated film about a group of misfit supermarket goods. Of course …

Review: Suicide Squad (Movie)

Suicide Squad is a fun mess. David Ayer’s film, the newest entry in the DC cinematic extended universe is getting a really bad reputation for having choppy editing and a paper thin plot.

Review: Now You See Me 2 (DVD Release)

Now You See Me 2 never should have seen the light of day. From start to finish, Jon M. Chu’s follow up film from the poorly received Jem and the Holograms is an absolute mess. Now You See Me 2 lacks any semblance of a logical narrative, relying on its charismatic cast to carry …
