Prospect (2018)
The Queen’s Lair. That’s a theory. What a fantastic SF! Not because there are breathtaking space landscapes. Or because impressive, galactic battles are being fought. And you won’t see a collection of...

My Review of 'Leaving Neverland'
Finding Neverland is a documentary that I didn't think I'd see myself watching, but a co-worker highly recommended the film. I didn't know what to think of it as Michael Jackson's always been in the m...

The Basement–A Review (Netflix)
Only five minutes in, and I can see why this film scored three point seven on IMDB. Might be some sort of a record. Generally, I don’t critique acting, because actors are at the mercy of the director,...

'The Lazarus Effect'–A Review (Netflix)
Back in the late eighties, Peter Filardi wrote a screenplay that started a mini bidding war. The story of medical students dying and bringing themselves back proved an enticing and intriguing premise,...
Where Pet Sematary (2019) Succeeds Pet Sematary (1989)
It is easy to latch on to the original film of a franchise, and incessantly attack the remake. We are all guilty of it to some degree due to our own bias. Personally I am OK with remakes... some of th...
Lestat’s Comic Book Review Round-Up—April Week 3, 2019
Week three of April and my Comic Book Review Round-Up takes a look at Batman #69, Nightwing #59, Uncanny X-Men #16, Star Trek: The Q Conflict #3 and Star Wars: Age of Rebellion Special #1. Usually I would cover the latest Age of X-Man issue, but since that series continues to be a disappointment, I don’t want to foist more negativity on you. Without further ado, here are this week’s reviews.

Why I Love Nola Darling
Let me tell you about my obsession with the TV show, She’s Gotta Have It, by legendary Spike Lee. I’ve rewatched this piece of art maybe four times since I found it on Netflix (and I'm currently dying...

'A Clockwork Orange' Film Review
A Clockwork Orange was the second Stanley Kubrick film I ever watched (after The Shining), and walking in with only the outline of the story in mind and not having read Anthony Burgess’s source materi...

'Stand by Me' (1986) Film Review
It's the summer of 1959, and four 12-year-old boys are hanging about in a tree-house, using secret knocks, making racist jokes about the French, and using gay slurs. Ah, the fifties. Filmed in the eighties. The first time I attempted to watch Stand by Me, I stopped before the boys even left the tree-house; the slurs against homosexuality and the mentally disabled were bothering me, as was the victimisation of one of the boys—not-so-coincidentally the largest member of the group. This is a common...

'Polar': A Review (Netflix)
If you were to take a John Wick film and splice it with Kill Bill 2, the bloodier of the two-parter, and it was directed by a Guy Richie protege, who hadn’t quite got the grasp of subtlety, you would ...
'Game of Thrones' Reaction

'Monsters Inc.' a Movie Review
I sure hope that Mike and Sully aren’t planning a surprise attack right now, or they’re really going to regret messing up my sleep cycle. In 2001, Pixar delighted audiences with Monsters Inc. Set in a...
