Our full review of Gentefied season one!
From IMDb: “Primal features a caveman at the dawn of evolution. A dinosaur on the brink of extinction. Bonded by tragedy, this unlikely friendship becomes the only hope of survival in a violent, primordial world.” What I liked: Since it takes place in primordial times, the show has zero dialog. Only yells and roars andContinue reading “Genndy Tartakovsky’s Primal (2019) (TV – Season 1)”
From IMDb: “She-Ra, Princess of Power, leads a rebellion to free her land of Etheria from the monstrous invaders the Horde.” What I liked: Completely dissects the original She-Ra concept and revamps it to be a deeper, prolonged experience. Features a progressive set of multi-dimensional characters voiced by a progressive cast. The show never getsContinue reading “She-Ra and the Princesses of Power (Seasons 1-4)”
From IMDB: “Abby Arcane returns home to Marais, Louisiana to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus, only to discover the dark, terrifying mysteries of the swamp.” Story: A wonderfully woven horror/mystery/relationship drama set in the swamps of Louisiana. Side note: I’ve been wanting to visit Louisiana for many years, and this just makes me want toContinue reading “Swamp Thing (2019)”
(Editor’s note: trying a new review format. We’re gonna discuss (and rate) the major categories in which movies and tv shows are made. Tell us what you thought! – Jose) See our review to Season 1 here. From IMDB: “Decades after their 1984 All Valley Karate Tournament bout, a middle-aged Daniel LaRusso and Johnny LawrenceContinue reading “Cobra Kai (SEASON 2)”
Liked: An awesome reboot/sequel that doesn’t use nostalgia as a crutch, but merely to establish the story. Clever use of segmented flashbacks keeps the audience informed of the franchise’s history, which would help (or even enhance) a new-to-the-franchise viewer. The basic premise is pretty much the same as the first Karate Kid movie, however, theContinue reading “Cobra Kai”
Oh hai, Encino Man’s Sean Astin. Starts off slow (because it now has to expand and spin multiple story arcs), but wraps up quite nicely. The kid who plays Will is a pretty damn good actor. We didn’t see enough of him in season 1 cuz…well……………….he was missing. Duh. New characters are introduced, while someContinue reading “Stranger Things 2 (tv)”
a ten episode progressive half-hour comedy-drama that’s expertly written. The story winds and wraps up very nicely but still leaves things open. Multi-dimensional characters, including one incredible standout in Lakeith Stanfield. Possibly the SMARTEST tv show I’ve ever seen. The show takes some absurd twists in serious fashions and I love absurd things played completelyContinue reading “Atlanta (tv) (season 1)”
