Comic Book Review: No Heroine #1

By Nolan P. Smith Editor My favorite kind of stories are ones with the protagonist and supporting cast that I can relate to in some way. Maybe it’s their sense of humor or quirky nature, but most of the time, it is their humanity. Frank Gogol created Dead End Kids last year, an incredible three-issue…Read moreRead more

Blood Hunters: Rise Of The Hybrids Review

By Kevin Hoskinson Blood Hunters: Rise Of The Hybrids feels like a comic book film through and through. It has action, thrills, and some interesting characters and creatures.

Movie Review: Trolls World Tour

By Kevin Hoskinson Originally slated to debut in theaters, Trolls World Tour skipped its theatrical run and premiered at home due to COVID-19.

Movie Review: Onward

By Kevin Hoskinson The latest film from Pixar feels like a traditional offering from the studio, but it also sees the animation juggernaut try something a bit different.

Movie Review: Doctor Sleep

By Kevin Hoskinson One would think that a follow up to The Shining, the 1980 film or the original novel, wouldn’t work, and understandably so.

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. While they both fight super-powered villains with their ninja skills and color-coordinated outfits, most fans would never have seen them together. That said, I have to say that…Read moreRead more

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. It’s a film that balances the awe of the world with a mediocre plot and overblown set-pieces. It chooses spectacle over story, which is a shame because the cast is incredible, and the previous film was…Read moreRead more

Movie Review: Instant Family

  By Kevin Hoskinson When it comes to movies like Instant Family, it can be a hit or miss affair.

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. It exceeds expectations while also subverting modern horror tropes.
