Not sure Yet

Not Sure Yet Last weekend, with much fanfare and anticipation, “Star Trek Discovery” premiered. Before the first 2 episodes of the show aired, quite a few of my friends were adamant… …more

Real or Made-up?

Real or Made-Up? When I was a kid I was intrigued by makeup. I would stand by my mother, her hair in curlers as she applied powders, creams, and colours, getting ready for the day. I wanted to do the same. Despite dabbing a little lipstick on my lips and… …more

Best of the Worst

Best of the Worst As a movie goer and avid comic reader, it has been clear to me for a long time that there is a problem with the DC cinematic universe. Since the horrendous Batman Forever where producers insisted on veering away from the dark humour that is Tim… …more

Film Analysis

So I have had a pretty boring day at work today. Things are slow, it is raining, and everyone just seems to be a bit lethargic. Maybe they are recovering from their epic weekends. Because of this, I have been perusing the interwebs and fallen into watching film analysis videos. As a person who loves… …more

Beautifully Bland

Beautifully Bland A problem that seems prevalent in a world where the technology is advancing faster than people learning how to properly utilise it, is that you get absolutely beautiful films rich in colour, texture, and wonder that lack story, intensity, and gravitas. The films often fall flat… …more

An Argument Against Binge Watching

An Argument Against Binge Watching With the advent of easily acquired content people tend to binge on visual media. Specifically TV shows and sometimes movie franchises. People will sit for 10 or 15 hours straight watching the new season of a show… …more

Perfect End

Perfect End I am going to start by saying this is a review of Logan and there will be spoilers. This hasn’t been an issue for a long time since I have been excessively lackadaisical about posting my reviews. But since the movie just came out on Friday… …more

We’ve still got nothing in Common

We’ve still got nothing in Common A Retro Review I had never seen Breakfast At Tiffany’s until recently and I gotta say I didn’t like it. Sacrilege! I know. It is a movie that has been praised for being a… …more

Christmas in NYC

Over this past Christmas I went for a short, pleasant trip across the border to New York. Well, really, New Jersey but New York was just a train ride away. I have been to the Big Apple many times in my life as my aunt lives there and growing up it was an excuse… …more

Going Rogue

Going Rogue On a cold, dreary, Friday the 13th, the second Friday of 2017, I am sitting at work waiting. Waiting for people to finish their job so I can begin mine. I am running out of ways to look busy while everyone else around me looks to be swamped. I flip… …more

Civil War and the MCU

Civil War and the MCU The first comic book I ever bought was X-Man #13. I was in The World’s Biggest Bookstore milling around in the periodicals section waiting for my father to… …more

Miss Pebbles

Miss Pebbles Last Wednesday morning I was startled awake by my phone ringing. Barely conscious I frantically pawed at my side table, eyes closed, looking for my phone. Groggily I said hello. Apologetically my mother asked if she woke me. It was clear she did but I told her not to worry… …more

DC Still Failing it’s Cinematic Universe

Due to my location, a holiday, and sheer laziness, I did not see Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice  on opening day. I was also not in that much of a rush as the last DC movie was not something to write home about. But the trailer did a good job of creating hype. But that……read more

Not the season I deserve

When watching a show you get involved with the story and characters. You understand them, you grow with them, and you feel what they feel. You follow along on their adventures are surprised, disappointed, and amazed. This affair has to come to an end at some point. Sometime abruptly when a show gets canceled… …more

A listicle about the X-Files

The last post I wrote for 2015 was a purposefully spoiler free pseudo-review of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Between then and now there is a whole bunch of stuff I should have written about but those will have to continue to wait. With Jan 24th quickly approaching I would be remiss to forgo writing something about……read more

I have seen it

I haven’t written a movie review in a while. I haven’t written anything in a while for that matter. But this epic pop culture event could not be ignored even if I tried. This review will be lacking spoilers as best as I possibly can but I warn you just in case. …more

The next weekend was FanExpo! I was so worried I wouldn’t be able to go but I figured out a way to get in for free. I worked the event! I got paid to be at something I wanted to go to and I got to see a lot of cool stuff. Win-win I tells……read more

Summer’s Over pt3

Along with PanAm came a lot of free shows, activities, and concerts throughout the city. Because of the mass crowds I didn’t try very hard to get to any of these shows. Except 1. The Roots put on a show at Nathan Phillip Square and I just had to be there. It was a… …more

Summer’s over pt 2

As the summer continued in the midst of jobless melancholy and creative bursts, I enjoyed afternoons out where I wondered the streets and met friends for lunch. The city was in a PanAm games frenzy as the streets were often filled with people and the city did its best to accomidate and entertain all… …more

Summer’s over pt 1

It is incredible how quickly the warm days pass. The heat, the sun, the extra vitamin D that makes everyone just a little bit happier. Street festivals, parades, concerts! Toronto becomes even more amazing when the weather just cooperates. We had a hot summer this year and I refused to complain about it. Sure… …more
