WandaVision And Grief In The MCU

By Kevin Hoskinson Over the past couple of months, we have witnessed an evolution in the MCU. While the franchise as a whole never shied away from portraying the emotional aspect of comic book heroes, it never put those emotions front and center. It has had its share of shocking and sad moments, but those are aimed towards us as […]

Movie Review: Tom and Jerry

By Kevin Hoskinson Entertainment Editor For generations, Tom and Jerry have delighted audiences with their irreverent humor and comedic hijinks. Being a child of the ’80s, I can remember at least three iterations of the characters on television, not to mention an animated feature film in the early ’90s. That is on top of their already extensive library of shorts […]

Graphic Novel Review: Acursian

By Kevin Hoskinson Entertainment Editor From Legendary Comics and starring John Barrowman, Acursian is a story that spans the ages. It is steeped in Celtic mythology and has an exciting sci-fi angle that Barrowman fans will definitely enjoy. Beginning in modern times, the story revolves around Charlie Stewart, an extremely unlikable lawyer. On his 40th birthday, he is plagued by […]

Crime Scene: Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel Review

By Kevin Hoskinson Entertainment Editor It is a case that has fascinated people all over the world. In 2013, twenty-two-year-old Elisa Lam, a Canadian college student, went missing while staying at The Cecil Hotel.

Celebrating the best that television and film have to offer, the ceremony is set to air Sunday, February 28th, on NBC.  This year Netflix led the nominations, including the David Fincher directed “Mank,” which scored six […]

Movie Review: The Little Things

By Kevin Hoskinson The most recent film in Warner Bros. 2021 film slate to hit theaters and HBO Max, The Little Things falls short of being memorable. It’s a perfectly fine thriller with some decent performances, but it’s not nearly as good as the films that it’s pretending to be. In the movie Denzel Washington plays Joe “Deke” Deacon. A […]

Movie Review: Love and Monsters

By Kevin Hoskinson Entertainment Editor In the tradition of Them! and Eight Legged Freaks comes Love And Monsters, a post-apocalyptic story about giant monsters, survival, and of course, love. The story is about the epic romance between Joel and Aimee. Well, it’s about the romance that would have been if a giant asteroid wasn’t flying towards the earth. It actually […]

Cobra Kai Season 3 Review

By Kevin Hoskinson Entertainment Editor The stakes are higher, and the rivalry between Cobra Kai and Miyagi Do heats up in season 3 of Cobra Kai. All episodes are now available to stream on Netflix. There will be no spoilers for the third season, but there will be some spoilers for those if you haven’t seen the previous two.  For […]

Movie Review: Soul

By Kevin Hoskinson Much like the music that inspired it, Pixar’s latest film Soul is more about feeling than experiencing. It’s an entertaining and in-depth examination of the human condition and what life is really about. The studio is known for its stories being a cut above, taking you places you could never imagine and making you feel things you […]

Movie Review: Fatman

By Kevin Hoskinson Watching the trailer for Fatman, there is a feeling of both disbelief and excitement. It felt like a joke, reminiscent of the SNL digital short that featured Dwayne Johnson starring in a gritty reboot of Disney’s Bambi. It couldn’t really be happening; a gritty action film starring Mel Gibson as Santa and Walton Goggins as the hitman […]

The Creators Of Black Mirror Tease Death To 2020

By Kevin Hoskinson Netflix has released a trailer for its original “Comedy” event, Death To 2020. Premiering on December 27th (definitely not on Quibi), the special features Samuel L. Jackson, Tracy Ullman, Hugh Grant, Lisa Kudrow, Kamial Nanjiania, Cristin Milioti, Leslie Jones and Joe Keery, with Laurence Fishburne as the narrator.

Movie Review: Mulan

By Kevin Hoskinson Of all the live-action adaptations of their animated classics, Disney’s Mulan takes the most risks. Unlike their previous efforts, namely Beauty and the Beast and The Lion King, it isn’t afraid to take some big swings and change things up a bit. It doesn’t always work, but it does more often than not, and it makes this […]

Movie Review: Sound Of Metal

By Kevin Hoskinson Sound is so integral to our everyday lives that we never stop and think about how incredible it is. But imagine that your hopes and dreams depend on that ability, and you suddenly lose all of it. That is the premise of Sound Of Metal, and it is an immersive experience like no other. There are plenty […]

Disney Investor Day 2020

By Kevin Hoskinson It was a whirlwind day for Disney as they announced over 100 new movies and series during their four-hour investor meeting, with most of those titles going to Disney+. Everything from Disney live-action and animated films to Pixar, Star Wars, and Marvel were represented. Like so many others my mind was absolutely blown away by what they […]

Movie Review: Happiest Season

Abbey hasn’t been a fan of Christmas since her parents died, so on a whim, Harper invites her to spend Christmas with her family. The catch: Harper explains to Abbey that her family […]

Oscar Isaac Cast As Solid Snake

By Kevin Hoskinson At this point, it’s more of a question of what world Oscar Isaac isn’t going to be a part of than which one he is going to do. He’s tackled the Star Wars universe with his role as Poe Dameron in the Disneyfied sequel trilogy, he’s taking on the role of Leto Atreides I in the reboot […]

Movie Review: All Joking Aside

By Kevin Hoskinson There seems to be a fascination with the world of stand up comedy and the lives of those who do it. It’s an interesting job that requires a lot of perseverance and a lot of guts to do. To me, it’s a terrifying prospect. Going up on stage night after night, spilling your soul and trying to […]

Comic Book Review: Heavy #2

By Kevin Hoskinson Things are getting crazy in the Big Wait as Bill is trying to keep his sanity due to his new reckless partner. How long he is going to be with him, there is no way of telling. But he does know this: if he wants to see his wife again, he needs to learn to roll with […]

Movie Review: The Witches

By Kevin Hoskinson Initially intended for theaters, the new film version of Roald Dahl’s The Witches has hit HBO Max. The movie stars Octavia Spencer, Anne Hathaway, Stanley Tucci, and a cast of talented young actors. It is also directed by Robert Zemeckis, which gave me a glimmer of hope that this adaptation of the Roald Dahl book would be […]

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm Review

By Kevin Hoskinson In 2006 the world was introduced to Borat Sagdiyev, a fictional character created and played by Sasha Baron Cohen. The film “Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan” became a cultural phenomenon in the United States while also creating one of the most imitated and iconic characters in recent memory. It was […]

Hubie Halloween Review

By Kevin Hoskinson Let’s just get this out of the way right now; I used to be an Adam Sandler fan. I was 15 when Billy Madison came out, and it was the greatest thing I had ever seen. So funny, so immature, and just my style. After that, he came out with a string of movies with the same […]

Movie Review: Vampires Vs. The Bronx

By Kevin Hoskinson There was something about seeing the Broadway Video logo at the beginning of this film that brought me back to old times. I couldn’t recall right away, but there was something very familiar and comforting about seeing it. After doing some light research, I quickly realized what that logo meant. When I was growing up in the […]

Graphic Novel Review: Lost

By Kevin Hoskinson Like Light before it, Lost is a dialogue-free adventure into the unknown. Its story isn’t entirely clear, but it’s a fun trip. It allows you to create your own story while giving you a blueprint.of which direction the story should take. It’s as minimalistic as comics get, and it’s an incredible journey.  The book is about two […]

Movie Review-Tenet: An Inversion Of The Mind

By Kevin Hoskinson Tenet, the latest film from director Christopher Nolan, is a film that offers both the best and the worst of his sensibilities. On the one hand, it’s a big-budget action-packed thriller with an interesting plot and gripping premise. On the other, it’s an overly complicated and convoluted narrative with so many twists and turns that you forget […]

Comic Book Review: Heavy #1

By Kevin Hoskinson While Heavy certainly lives up to its title, it has a deceptively simple story at its core. That’s not to say that it’s anything less than stellar; it just works better as an idea than a flowing narrative. It struck me as an analogy of anxiety and the regret and fear that it causes. It’s about morality […]
