Stranger Things 2 Review

In TV by Steve Magill0 Comments

Stranger Things took many of us by surprise. It wasn’t its quality because Netflix had released previously solid shows. No, it was its balance of ET like story dynamics, a charming cast and a core intriguing mystery. It also fed eighties nostalgia to us through a drip that made it feel like some illicit addictive drug. But despite its success …

Thor Ragnarok Review

In Movies by Ent Dem Team0 Comments

If I’m being entirely honest, the Thor movies have been kind of rough. The original introduced us to the wonderful work of Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston but ended up essentially being a fish out of water story. The sequel well who can honestly remember anything about it. So, there was definitely a change in direction required for it to …

Blade Runner 2049 Review

In Movies by Steve Magill0 Comments

The cynic in me, assumes creative types, whether it’s actor or director only return to franchises for the money.

Upon hearing that a new Blade Runner …

Kingsman: The Golden Circle Review

In Movies by Steve Magill0 Comments

Kingsman: The Secret Service took the overly serious and stuffy nature of spy films and turned that back towards camp and funny, more reminiscent of a Roger Moore film than anything Matt Damon or Daniel Craig might star in.

In Movies by Steve Magill0 Comments

A truly bad day can either ruin anything good or make the smallest thing the perfect salve for it. Without going into a relatively over dramatic rendering of my bad day I will just let you know that was the type of mood I was in when walking in to see Stephen King’s It. The good news is that IT …

Tacoma Review

In Video Games by Steve Magill0 Comments

Tacoma is the latest video game by The Fullbright Company the studio responsible for Gone Home.  Gone Home resonated with me on an emotional level not because of the story it told but because of how it told it. A story that set up expectation with fear and dread before becoming a story of hope.  So, to follow up that, …
