Our full review of Gentefied season one!
From IMDb: “Three young alien beings with the ability to form a giant robotic warrior attempt to blend into suburbia, all while battling the tyrannical forces that ravaged their home world.” What I liked: A forgotten gem from master animator Genndy Tartakovsky, who I’ve mentioned before when reviewing his latest show, Primal. Paul Rudish andContinue reading “Sym-Bionic Titan (2010) (TV)”
From IMDb: “The Mandalorian comes face-to-face with an unexpected enemy. ” What I liked: Gratuitous Gina Carano entry. I really wish she’d get her own spin-off show, because I think she is the character with the most depth. She’s my favorite character on the show, celebrity-crush aside. Ialsoloveher. The full Biker Scouts scene at theContinue reading “The Mandalorian (2019) – Season Finale”

From IMDB: “The Mandalorian teams up with an ex-soldier to protect a village from raiders.” What I liked: Oh hey, it’s the Seven Samurai episode. For those who don’t know what Seven Samurai is, it’s an almost 4 hour Japanese action drama from the 50’s about a village hiring some Samurai to help them defeatContinue reading “The Mandalorian (2019) – Episode 4”
