Mini Me

In which I provide many short reviews and thoughts on topics. No, I’m not writing about the Austin Powers series of movies. Nor about the character of Mini Me. You can’t make me and that’s just how I roll. Instead, I’m going to write some short little pieces about different aspects of media that I’ve…

Bad Movie Sunday (Two Reviews)

One of my favorite programs as a child was the Saturday afternoon Creature Double Feature. The program originated out of Boston, but I think it was picked up in syndication on the local stations in Maine. Or maybe Maine had a similar show with a similar title, I’m not sure. But every Saturday after the…

King Sabrina (Two Reviews)

When I was a kid, I used to deliver the Sunday paper. Having a paper route was a sort of rite of passage for kids back then, although I think most of them are now managed by older individuals with cars looking for a second source of income. I didn’t like getting up so early…

The First (Review)

I’d heard some rumors of good things coming out of the new series, The First, which is now streaming on Hulu. I’ve found most Hulu original series to be pretty decent (we’ve enjoyed Castle Rock and The Handmaid’s Tale, although the latter is so full of existential dread that at times we struggle to get…

I Am The Immortal… Wait For It….

I make no bones about disliking the first season of Iron Fist on Netflix. It was a sloppy mess, with poor writing, constantly changing character motivations for no good reason, lousy acting, bad martial arts scenes, and a main protagonist who was arrogant and obnoxious. It’s not a series I’ll ever watch again, and it…

Sweet Christmas (Reviews)

There’s actually a couple of reviews here, so let’s get right to them. Tons of spoilers ahead! Justice League: I make no apologies for being a Marvel fanboy. Spider-man was my jam when I was a child, and I grew up loving the Hulk, Fantastic Four, and the whole long stable of Marvel characters. That…

Space Opera – Review

“In the beginning, the universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.” – Douglas Adams, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe. Great lines are always difficult and tricky little bastards to peg down. I think this is especially true of comedic…

Reviews and Reviews

Now that the writing has been rolling along for the past few weeks, I’m going to try to get back to doing reviews as well. So, let’s call this “The Return of the Reynolds Review.” I’ve got a movie and a book in store, so stick around, kiddies. Lots of spoilers ahead, so I’mma not…
