Scream 1.5 Review: “Exposed”

What an episode!  The two least likable characters (Will and super-douche Jake) are blackmailing Brooke’s dad, who appears to have killed someone (maybe Brooke’s mom).  The new sheriff isn’t the sheriff anymore because his ex-girlfriend (and old drinking buddy) came in [...]

Scream 1.4 Review: “Aftermath”

Well, after still reeling (along with the rest of the cast) from last week’s death, this episode seems to be a bit of a “filler,” getting us from point A to point B.  There are no jumps or scares in [...]

Oh, man!  Spoilers ahead because, well, we HAVE to talk about that ending. So Noah is officially the most likable person in this series.  And seeing him make Riley the second most likable, though painful at the conclusion of this [...]

Suicide Squad SDCC trailer

Here they are, folks!  The Suicide Squad.  First, the trailer was leaked, then it was removed, and now Warner Bros. has decided that enough is enough and just released the official trailer themselves.  Jared Leto as the Joker?  No way! [...]

So the second episode of the new Scream TV series has come and gone, and it did a pretty great job of moving the plot right along.  We got our very own updated version of Gale Weathers in the form [...]

Why We Need Batman Part 1: Super Friends

Batman is the most complex character in comic book history, and that is why he is objectively the best character in comic book history.  Over 75 years worth of stories agree with me.  That complexity could take years to fully [...]
