Jessica Jones Season 2 Trades Pure Evil for Moral Complexity

Posted March 11, 2018 by Rodney Brown

It is going to be tough to write a spoiler-free review of the second season of the Netflix Marvel show Jessica Jones, because the big reveal needs to be kept secret, but is absolutely vital to what makes this season different from the first. I am committed, however, to never spoiling a show or movie […]

Death Note Movie Writes Its Own Obituary

Posted August 31, 2017 by Byron D. Zero

Adaptations are a fickle force to dabble with; you take an established idea and try to see how you can make it your own. Sometimes you get lucky and give a successful idea your own flavor, like with the Tom Cruise movie Edge of Tomorrow which is an adaptation of the manga All You Need […]

Netflix Castlevania Series Is Mostly Bloody Good Fun

Posted July 10, 2017 by Rodney Brown

Last week Netflix premiered Castlevania, a very good animated movie that it disguised as an animated series. Only four episodes long, it is essentially a two-hour animated film, chopped up into easily bingeable slices. And that is one of Castlevania‘s few real weaknesses. Based on the 1989 Konami game Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse, the Netflix series is […]

Iron Fist Is The Weak Link in Marvel’s Chain, But Not A Break

Posted March 18, 2017 by Rodney Brown

First, let’s answer a couple of questions. Is Iron Fist as bad as many critics say? No, it isn’t. Are the critics correct about the problems? Yes, but those problems don’t affect the overall quality of the show nearly as much as many critics contend. Below is my spoiler-free review. I will talk in generalities […]

Completely Captured by ‘Stranger Things’

Posted September 4, 2016 by Kristen Hunn

I was apprehensive about watching Stranger Things. Although my social network was beginning to buzz about how great it was, the whispers I was hearing didn’t seem like it would be my thing. I’m not a Goonies fan (sorry!) and I don’t have the love of 80’s culture that some of my peers do. But […]

Better ‘Jessica Jones’ Title – ‘AKA Trigger Warning’ or ‘Alias: Plot Holes’

Posted November 23, 2015 by Rodney Brown

I know that I strongly recommended watching the Netflix show Jessica Jones, based on the first three episodes. That recommendation is tempered by two important things now that I have seen it all. First, the show is an enormous smorgasbord of abuse, presented with such intensity that it is something that should seriously carry a […]

‘Marvel’s Jessica Jones’: Another Bloody Good Netflix Home Run

Posted November 20, 2015 by Rodney Brown

The first episode of Marvel’s Jessica Jones plays out like Season 1 of True Detective meets Raymond Chandler with just a sprinkling of superheroics. And that is a marvelous mixture that makes you want to binge watch the whole Netflix series in one sitting. To be fair, the first episode isn’t perfect. It lags at […]

Nerdflix: 3 Geeky Gems You Can Stream RIGHT NOW.

Posted December 13, 2011 by Jake Young

I use MS Paint, because I can’t afford KidPix.   On a recent episode of my podcast Nerd of Mouth we discussed the first-worldiest of problems; making the most of one’s Netflix subscription. Sure, it seems harmless, sitting there on its own Wii channel or iPad app. Yet most of the time I find myself staring […]
