Comic Book Review: Mighty Morphin Power Rangers/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #4 -Rangers in a Half Shell

By Daniel Schwartz Crossovers can be tricky, especially when it comes to properties that most people would never think to put together. TMNT/MMPR is one of those.

Movie Review: Jumanji- The Next Level

By Kevin Hoskinson While it’s an entertaining film, the latest in the Jumanji franchise never fires on all cylinders.

The Invisible Man (2020) Review

By Kevin Hoskinson Director Leigh Wanell’s updated version of Universal’s “The Invisible Man” is a pulse-pounding experiment in tension and horror.
