  • Queer Cinema’s Marco Berger.

    Queer cinema, specifically Latin American queer cinema is filled with talented filmmakers whose films explore the complexities of the queer individual/community. However there is one filmmaker who has made a crop of films that often mix the exploration of sexuality and tension perfectly and that filmmaker goes by the name of Marco Berger.

  • Egress Means Exit, Exit Means Begin Again

    Adventure Time is known for its uniquely strange, inexplicable, symbolism-rich surrealist tendencies, but Hall of Egress is unique in these regards even within this canon. In it, Finn is trapped in his most most daunting dungeon crawl yet as he must escape a maze that doesn't end when he leaves the dungeon. The concept is presented abstractly enough that it has spawned dozens of entirely valid [i][/i]interpretations, so I am merely throwing my beanie into the ring. I believe Hall of Egress preludes Finn's character arc as Adventure Time enters its endgame phase.

  • 12 Anticipated Book Adaptations Starring High-Profile Actors 2019

    There are truly fewer things more satisfying than seeing an author's imagination come to, so I'm always excited to see big screen adaptions especially when some of my favourite actors and filmmakers are involved in these anomalous projects. This seems to be shaping up to be quite the year for contemporary book adapations.

Being one of the legendary Shounen Jump "Big Three", BLEACH and its characters are quite popular among anime fans new and old and its main character, Kurosaki Ichigo, finds himself in truly special company both within his own universe, as well as within the Shounen genre.

  • The Favourite Flaunts Flawlessness

    There’s a lot to be said about The Favourite but one word sums it up: brilliant. Periodic films are usually a bore fest unless one is truly passionate about theatre and the plot. This type of genre is traditionally known for difficult English accents, mostly mumbling, which without subtitles would be difficult to fathom. Such films are also popularly known for the exquisite costumes and politeness exhibited which for the modern world is out of touch- the millennial generation made fashion trends out of hobo attire and rudeness, online and in real life, an aspiration but I digress.
