TV Review: MASTERS OF THE AIR (Ep. 6) on Apple TV+

Posted: February 23, 2024 at 12:55 pm   /   Television, Television Reviews

Part Six begins in the aftermath of Part Five, showing three very different outcomes for members of the 100th. It’s a change of pace from Five, as there isn’t any aerial combat and the action on the ground is relatively limited. Major Egan, whose plane was shot down, is seen attempting to find food and […]

Movie Review: DUNE: PART TWO Starring Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Florence Pugh

Someone get me a Dune popcorn bucket. Oh, that has nothing to do with my review; they just didn’t have any at the screening I attended. Thanks to his seminal work in the last 11-12 years, director Denis Villeneuve has established himself as one of the top directors of his generation. If you look at […]

TV Review: MASTERS OF THE AIR (Ep. 5) on Apple TV+

At this point, halfway through the series, Masters of the Air has established a bit of a formula for its episodes. Roughly a third to a half of the episode focuses on the current bombing mission for the 100th, and the other two-thirds deal with the aftermath as well as the preparation for the next […]

TV Review: MASTERS OF THE AIR (Ep. 4) on Apple TV+

And now for the aftermath. While Part 3 showed the extent of the Regensburg bombing mission, Part 4 is a decidedly less exciting episode, as the 100th deals not only with its success in the previous mission, but also its losses. It’s a change of scenery and pace from what I consider one of the […]

Movie Review: ARGYLLE Starring Bryce Dallas Howard, Henry Cavill, Sam Rockwell, John Cena

Do you like absurdly good-looking people? Are you a fan of having so many plot twists, the plot twists have their own plot twists? Are you needing something to do for two hours and 20 minutes? If so, have I got the movie for you! Mathew Vaughn has been in the industry for a while, […]

TV Review: MASTERS OF THE AIR (Ep. 3) on Apple TV+

Posted: February 2, 2024 at 1:41 pm   /   Television Reviews

What a ride. While parts 1 and 2 of Masters of the Air were a bit of an introduction to the characters and a warm-up to how the 100th Bomber Group operated during World War II, part 3 is nothing less than the equivalent of the Omaha Beach scene from Saving Private Ryan, dropping the […]

If you were around during the late ‘90s and early 2000s, you’ll probably recall the massive influx of World War II video games and movies that suddenly became prevalent. Call of Duty, Medal of Honor, Brothers in Arms, Enemy at the Gates, Windtalkers, U-571…a full list would take up an entire page. While WWII as […]

Movie Review: New MEAN GIRLS Musical Starring Angourie Rice, Reneé Rapp, Auli’i Cravalho

If you were in high school or college back in 2004, there’s a very strong chance either you or some of your friends saw Mean Girls. Based on the book Queen Bees and Wannabes by Rosalind Wiseman, the film hit home for many young adults with its relatable theme and numerous quotable one-liners. Say the […]

Movie Review: THE BEEKEEPER Starring Jason Statham, Emmy Raver-Lampman, Bobby Naderi

Posted: January 12, 2024 at 12:00 pm   /   Movie Reviews, Film

Fair warning: there is a very good chance I spent more time and thought in writing this review than Kurt Wimmer spent writing a plot for The Beekeeper. If that doesn’t deter your interest in seeing the movie, read on. Listen, I get it. Jason Statham is popular because he’s good looking and is more […]
