Sweeney Todd Meets Mad Max in SyFy’s Grindhouse ‘Blood Drive’

by Laura Cerroneon June 14, 2017
It is Sweeny Todd meets Mad Max in this high-octane SyFy pursuit. There’s fire, there’s rock and souped-up muscle cars that are gassed up on blood in this grindhouse endeavor. Blood Drive explores the gory underbelly of dystopian Los Angeles, where water is sparse (that’s not that far off), police enforcement is privatized, and life […]

Emotions, Not Plot, Rescues Agents of SHIELD’s Season 4 Finale

by Laura Cerroneon May 17, 2017
Episode 22 – World’s End If Agents of SHIELD ended during the season finale, it would have been a confusing and difficult place to leave the series. However, that’s not the case for World’s End. The season concluded with more questions than answers, and was propelled by its emotional elements rather than the action.   […]

Commemorative Wonder Woman Blu-Ray/DVD Offers History and Admiration

by Laura Cerroneon May 15, 2017
Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own. Glass ceilings have ceased to exist in the presence of Wonder Woman. Alongside some of the most powerful names in feminism, Diana Prince is the equivalent fictional counterpart. Throughout […]

by Laura Cerroneon May 10, 2017
Episode 21 – The Return Guess who’s back? Back again. Ghost Rider’s back, tell a friend! Kudos to Eminem for helping us usher in this review of the penultimate episode, The Return. Of course, we knew as early as last week Robbie Reyes was returning to the show, but it was great to see him […]

Madame Hydra Takes a Fall in Agents of SHIELD

by Laura Cerroneon April 26, 2017
Episode 19 – All the Madame’s Men With three more episodes left in what has otherwise been a stellar season, All the Madame’s Men fell into Agents of SHIELDs filler trap. While the pawns moved on the board, the running climax diminished at the moment. While action is certainly what kicked off the episode, with […]
