Ad Astra Review

I like space. This can mean two things: I like outer space, a popular setting in sci-fi cinema which represents the great unknown, and I like the figurative term “space,” in that I prefer to be alone. Growing into the person I am now, I’ve learned that my desire for solitude has become more selective—I prefer to be away from crowds of strangers, but fully enjoy being around loved ones. This is the difference between me and the star of Ad Astra, Roy McBride, who was raised in a chasm of solitude away from the man who molded him: his father and legendary astronaut, Clifford McBride.

Iconoclasts Review

Sometimes, there are things you wish to review, but the expectations set by the topic itself make it difficult to reciprocate equal treatment. There have been plenty of games in the past that I’ve come to cherish, games that showed that luscious glimmer of spirit I saw prior to experiencing it. As a reviewer, these are the things I write for, in order to experience that same enthusiasm and passion for the creative process. It can be rare, for a chap as cynical as I, to let that feeling override the mental process. You don’t think about how much something means to you after the fact—you just know.

Sonic Adventure DX: Director’s Cut Review

Maybe this review will be a a thousand words. Maybe it will be ten-thousand. I don’t know. I’m going in relatively blind. The ambition is present and why let this chance slip away? I finished the game for the fourth(?) time in my life; with it, I think I can finally settle my true feelings for it once and for all. This may either be revolutionary or a mess lying in wait. Hopefully, it’ll be both and more. Continue reading “Sonic Adventure DX: Director’s Cut Review”

Norm of the North Actually Got a Sequel and It’s Glorious

I watched Norm of the North with my brother early last month, perfectly aware of the reputation it has as one of the worst animated films in the existence of time (that’s the magic, really). While it was definitely very bad, I didn’t find it to be as bad as everyone else seemed to think it was; merely an inadequate picture with really unfunny jokes and a juvenile storyline. Upon finishing it, I made the horrifying discovery that a sequel actually existed, and thus, the search for “terribad” content continued forward.

And by the power vested in me as a purveyor of terribad content, Norm of the North: Keys to the Kingdom is an exquisite masterpiece. Continue reading “Norm of the North Actually Got a Sequel and It’s Glorious”

Day Thirty-One: Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (MotM 2019)

And so, the final day of the 2019 March of the Movies block comes to a close. It was a good run this year. While I certainly could’ve improved on my time management and depth of reviews, I feel I watched a lot of enjoyable and insightful films this month. To cap it all off, I decided to see something that has been collectively crowned as the greatest superhero-based film ever in the history of time. If you think this sounds exaggerative, why don’t you check its Letterboxd page real quick and get back to me. It should only take a few moments of your time.
