In TV by Steve MagillLeave a Comment

People often remember beloved shows with a nostalgic hindsight, glossing over its flaws and reminiscing that one day you would love to have it back. Recent years have made that latter wish a reality as more and more as TV shows are revived for limited runs. The reality has been a mixed bag, though in terms of quality. With perhaps …

‘Luke Cage Season One’ Review

In TV by Steve MagillLeave a Comment

The dense real estate of movies has been taken over by super heroes and as that real estate grows ever more crowded TV seems like territory ripe for the picking. DC comics have always had a close relationship with TV and has found success from Smallville to The Flash,  Arrow and Supergirl. Marvel began slowly with their Agents of SHIELD …

‘Deepwater Horizon’ Review

In Movies by Steve MagillLeave a Comment

There is something about a true story that makes it appealing to a broad audience.  The premise may simply interesting peaking curiosity or it might be the empathy of normal people doing extraordinary things. It might be an age thing too. I’ve found myself resonating with true stories of survival more and more. Deepwater Horizon was not a film on …
