Pilot Review: Deception

From the people who brought you every “I have an abnormal approach to crime solving” show who also saw Now You See Me and Now You See Me 2 comes a new show about a disgraced magician who helps the FBI solve the very abundant magic-related cases.

Well, it’s got a unique angle and I’m not talking about the magic stuff alone. Continue reading

Movie Review: The Post (2018)

Did you see the previews for this and think, wow, what an A+ cast for this movie that will definitely be marking the beginning of an era of award-winning movies about print media? Did you see Spotlight and add “newspapers standing up to an establishment” to your list of movie genres to always check out? Then, sigh, maybe find a book about this or something.

Movie Review: Pitch Perfect 3 (2017)

I am pretty sure I liked this more than the 2nd and I didn’t mind the 2nd one. But Prisma, you may bemoan, I’ve always thought of you as a connoisseur of culture and now I’m going to hear a glowing review of this idol of empty capitalism?

Warning: Vague spoilers below that may make you go, ooooooh, that’s what she was talking about in her review if you watch the movie later.

Look, another movie with my definitely not recently remembered future ex-boyfriend Nicholas Hoult whose IMDB page totally didn’t inform my next couple of movies that I picked by random.

I’m not sure what I’m judging against here for his performance but he definitely pulled off zombie Frankenstein teen monster forbidden Romeo or whatever his character influences were. Continue reading
