The previous Star Wars movie left a bad taste in my mouth; that was the taste of a stale, re-heated meal you used to love, but now tastes like shit. So, you can expect me to have had some hesitations when going to see this one. I wanted, nay, needed this to be better, to cleanse the bile from the last one. Let’s just say that it wasn’t a full blast of Listerine, but it did some cleansing. I still have some bits of porg stuck between my teeth.
Let’s get this out of the way first before I begin tearing this movie to shreads: Aquaman is a joke of a character. His super-power is talking to fish. And Karathen apparently.

The second one was that I stayed throughout this 2 HOURS 20 MINUTES-long pile of puke-evoking, mind melting empty shell of a movie. I should have left the theater in the first 10 minutes. But no, I remained transfixed in my seat as the horrible images of chaos, nonsense and sheer stupidity flashed before my eyes. Alex from A Clockwork Orange had a better time during his rehabilitation treatment.Read more "No Man’s Player One: The postmodern issue"
This is it folks, the first (sic!) black superhero film with an almost entirely black cast and a black director talking about black history and issues revolving around black people in black countries in the dark continent. If you believe the hype about this movie then Black Panther should be the bastard son of MLK and Malcolm X with a black power agenda turned up to 11.Read more "Feline politics & corporate manipulation: The case of the Black Panther"
The original GitS was – and still remains to this day – one of the top 3 Sci-Fi anime movies of all time. It was visually stunning with a deep and complex story, that was not based on the violence or the over-the-top-action…Read more "The empty shell of a ghost"
