Ghost in the Shell preview
The opening four-and-a-half minutes of the upcoming Ghost in the Shell live-action movie was released on Twitter today, and… I'm not particularly impressed. ICYMI: watch an extended clip from #GhostintheShell from the beginning of the movie.

Unfortunate Events
I wonder if I'd like Netflix's A Series of Unfortunate Events more if it didn't remind me quite so much of Pushing Daisies . They have more than a few things in common; from an omnipresent narrator to a visual style right on the border of the uncanny-valley...

Ghost of a Shell
Possibly controversial opinion: there has never been a truly great version of Ghost in the Shell . Even Masamune Shirow's original 1989 manga is uneven, lurching from philosophy to comedy to body horror to tedious politicking to pornography at its author's ...

Doctor Strange
The fundamental problem with Doctor Strange is that it's not about anything. Marvel's latest Cinematic Universe hero bears some surface-level similarities to their first: 2008's Iron Man also starred a wealthy genius with a predilection for stylish facial h...

No Fear of a Blank Planet
I think I've finally figured out what's missing from No Man's Sky : danger. Supposedly a survival game, there's very little threat. Aggressive animals are, in my experience, very uncommon. The Sentinels will leave you alone unless provoked. Hazardous enviro...

Seven things I hate about Re:Zero, after 18 episodes
This will likely make little sense to anybody who has A. not seen any of Re:Zero or B. seen (or read) all of Re:Zero so far. The whole Light Novel schtick. Conversations that take three times longer to get to the point than even the slowest audience could p...

Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping
Calling this movie "a mess" could be seen as charitable, and certainly I'm a softer landing for the film's charms than a lot of people would be. I thoroughly enjoy a lot of The Lonely Island's previous output - both on and off SNL - and Andy Samberg's turn ...

London Has Fallen
There are just enough over-the-top Americanisms in the London Has Fallen for my brain to struggle with Poe's Law . The casual disregard with which a wedding is blown up by a barely-teenaged pilot half a world away, orders given based on intelligence gathere...

Watch Dogs 2
Watch Dogs 2 doesn't look like they've learned a fucking thing. "Stick a black guy in as protagonist," says a fool in a plaid shirt with a beard stolen from an early 20th century lumberjack, "and give him a backstory where he was falsely accused of a crime ...
