“Muppets Most Wanted” movie review

“Muppets Most Wanted” movie review 3

Disney snatches up anything that isn’t bolted down, and The Muppets have belonged to “The Mouse Almighty” for a decade now. The last Muppet movie was a big success. Loved by critics and audiences, the $45-million picture grossed more than $150 million and even brought home an Oscar for best original song. Now a bit(…)

“Orphan Black” – Nature Under Constraint and Vexed (2.01) episode review 1

As an unabashed lover of science-fiction and for strong female leads, Orphan Black was an easy recommendation for me. The first season was more fun than it had any right to be with a chameleon of a lead in relative unknown Tatiana Maslany. Despite the fact that the show never quite rose in the ranks(…)

“Supernatural” – Meta Fiction (9.18) episode review 3

Supernatural this week was the perfect example of what sets it apart from other shows, and what, at the end of the day, makes all the sexism, stupidity, and plot repetition worth sitting through. It has a bravery and a creativity to it, and with that a lack of inhibition when it comes to going(…)
