Review: The X-Files Embrace the Fun in “This”

by Jeff Fountainon January 13, 2018
I knew I was in for some fun when the episode began with The Ramones playing in the background, a somehow perfect setting for the shootout that was about to happen at Mulder’s house. It was the beginning of an episode full of action, one-liners and an investigation into a transmission sent by a now […]

Review: Star Trek: Discovery Embraces the Dark Side in “Despite Yourself”

by Jeff Fountainon January 8, 2018
*SPOILERS AHEAD* As much as I’ve enjoyed the darker tone of Discovery, I was beginning to wonder where they were going to take this. I mean, you can’t have a show about a war with the Klingons forever, good or bad. Enter the Mirror Universe, the Terran Empire and the possibilities of the Klingon war […]

Review: The X-Files “My Struggle III” is Disturbing and Dysfunctional

by Jeff Fountainon January 4, 2018
*SPOILERS AHEAD* Well, that was a bit creepy and disturbing. No, I’m not talking about the season eleven premiere, although I wish I was as The X-Files looks pretty tired and worn out. I’m talking about the big reveal from Cigarette Smoking Man at the end of the episode that while a bit surprising and […]

Movie Review: Kill Order

by Jeff Fountainon November 22, 2017
The Blood in the Snow Canadian Film Festival 2017 Fast fists and fast-paced, Kill Order makes no bones about what it’s about right away and that is a very good thing. There is a plot, don’t get me wrong, but this movie is all about action, well-choreographed relentless action, that benefits greatly from casting stunt […]

The Flash Review: Common Sense Takes a Holiday in ‘When Harry Met Harry’

by Jeff Fountainon November 15, 2017
*SPOILERS AHEAD* I don’t usually do spoiler reviews for The Flash but this week’s episode contained enough questionable content that I decided it needed to be addressed head-on. Don’t get me wrong, there were some enjoyable moments but the show also went places that had me scratching my head and wondering what the hell they […]

Star Trek Discovery Review: ‘Magic to Make the Sanest Man Go Mad’

by Jeff Fountainon October 30, 2017
I must admit I wasn’t that thrilled to hear that this week’s episode was going to involve a time loop. Star Trek has been using this as a storytelling device for a while now and it sounded too much like a throwaway episode to me. However, using Harry Mudd helped changed things up and we […]

Star Trek Discovery Review: Lorca and Burnham are Pushed to Extremes in ‘Lethe’

by Jeff Fountainon October 23, 2017
Setting up the first season of any new series is tricky business and with Star Trek even more so, with so much history and canon, people already have their own idea what Star Trek is. Those behind Discovery know this but thankfully they are following their own story, their own path, giving us a small […]

The Flash Review: Loads of Fun, Lack of Substance in “Mixed Signals”

by Jeff Fountainon October 18, 2017
After the strange and not so wonderful season premiere, it was great to see The Flash go to their strength, that being humor and it really showed with the great one-liners and excellent chemistry. However, the episode still left me wanting, with another meta bad guy that was lame and except for a few instances, […]
