Spider-man Is Home: Review

by Garyon July 8, 2017
Spider-man: Homecoming is magnificent. It has all the elements that people love about Spider-man: great action, a compelling hero, great one-liners, an amazing supporting cast, and more. If it isn’t at all clear, Marvel Studios knows what they’re doing when it comes to making movies. This review does not contain spoilers. Their casting, as usual, […]

Wonder Woman: Finally

by Garyon June 3, 2017
Wonder Woman is fantastic; the DC extended universe has a truly great movie and it is about damn time. After films that were flawed but okay (Man of Steel), to obsessively anticipated but miss the mark (Batman V Superman), to films that had great promise but don’t quite measure up (Suicide Squad), Wonder Woman gives […]

Chin Han Waxes Philosophical About Ghost in the Shell

by Garyon March 27, 2017
“What does the rapid expansion of technology mean for mankind?” It was a rhetorical question, asked by Chin Han, one of the stars of Ghost in the Shell, in theatres across North America on Friday. The question was interesting; and not just because the interviewee was the one asking the questions. Han says the movie […]

Is Showcase’s Halcyon the Natural Evolution of Television?

by Garyon March 25, 2017
Picture this: a murder is committed; an iconoclastic genius is found dead in his home. This man has revolutionized the modern world with his innovative approach to virtual reality, and now he’s dead.

Rogue One is a Paradox; And That is a Good Thing

by Garyon December 17, 2016
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, as I wrote last year, had a lot riding on it. As the first canonical Star Wars film set outside of the original trilogies, it needs to perform well because…in many ways…it is an experiment. Yes, it`s true that fans flocked to The Force Awakens but retro is hot right now (look no further than Jurassic […]

Incorporated is a Dark Vision of Humanity

by Garyon November 30, 2016
Our future is in peril; look no further than rising global temperatures, extinction of species, and massive unrest in countries worldwide. Incorporated, executive produced by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck and premiering tonight on Showcase in Canada, and SyFy in the United States, paints a post apocalyptic world in this vein. Governments around the globe […]

Vikings’ Return Will Pillage our Televisions

by Garyon November 30, 2016
When last we left Vikings, Ragnar Lothbrook stormed into Kattegat and asked who wanted to be king. For the last decade or so, in his absence, his son Björn ruled in his stead. Alexander Ludwig, the actor who’s brought the character to life over the past three seasons, believes this is the beginning of a […]

Doctor Strange is a Marvel

by Garyon November 5, 2016
Doctor Strange, on the face of it, is a hard sell. It, like Guardians of the Galaxy, treads new ground for the Marvel Cinematic Universe, integrating magic into a world of science and myth. This review does not contain spoilers. There’s so many things that could go wrong; the magic look could look silly (like […]

Homecoming ain’t easy: Ash vs. Evil Dead Season 2

by Garyon October 2, 2016
Is there anything off limits to the creative team behind Ash Vs. Evil Dead? “The answer is no,” said Rob Tapert, long time executive producer of the Evil Dead Universe at San Diego Comic Con. After the orgy of demonic excess that was season 1, fans have high expectations for the show’s sophomore season, which […]

Travelers: The Future is Now

by Garyon September 4, 2016
Travelers looks like it’s going to be a great show, full of intrigue, tension, and strong characters. In some ways, that it’s so great, is ironic. It’s ironic because the show (on Netflix in the US and Showcase in Canada) has a bright future, which is a stark contrast to the future of its characters. […]
