'Aquaman' Is What All DC Films Need to Be
To be honest, and I'm not saying anything you all don't already know, Warner Bros.' efforts to rival the Marvel Cinematic Universe have been unsuccessful at best. Riddled with controversy and backstage politics, what is known as the DC Extended Universe has been a doomed project for years. Fans all over have watched some of the world's most iconic heroes be severely mishandled on screen. After Justice League (2017) failed to compete against Avengers: Infinity War (2018) both at the box office an...

'Mermaid's Song' (VOD 2018)
Her story begins where the fairy tale ends. I suppose this movie was inspired by the well-known fairy tale The Little Mermaid by Christian-Andersen. Now, if you were an attentive reader, you’d noticed...

Movie Review 'Drugs as Weapons Against Us'
Drugs as Weapons Against Us is one of the cheaper and lazier documentaries I have seen in quite some time. Cobbled together from several other superior documentaries, Drugs as Weapons Against Us aims to expose how the CIA has employed drugs, including LSD and other psychoactives, to attempt to destroy leftist opponents of rightwing governments; the documentary has compelling ideas, but is unappealing and cheap in the presentation of those ideas. The documentary was written and created by John Po...
