The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance – Inside the Epic Return to Thra

Netflix returned fans to the world of Thra earlier this year with The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance, but this week Insight Editions’ new book reveals how it all came together. Whether you’re a fan of the show, or simply like seeing how big budget shows come together, this is a must have. Come inside for my full review. 

War of the Spark: Forsaken (Book)

The latest novel set in the world of Magic the Gathering picks up where the previous one left off, giving our heroes even more magical troubles, and mysteries, to deal with. Is the return to Ravnica worthwhile? Read my full review to see my full thoughts on the latest fantasy novel release!

Parasite

Parasite is the very definition of a good movie. Challenging, funny, brutal, entertaining, and expertly assembled. Few movies strike this perfect balance.

An Entertaining and Stacked Blu-Ray Release 

While Hobbs & Shaw stutters a little from pacing issues, it’s still a highly enjoyable action movie. Equal parts goofy and intense, there’s no denying the charisma between ALL of...

A Compelling Story Filled With Heart

The story, adventure, and emotion makes for an engaging novel; one that easily stands out on its own. Even as it works to “fill the gap” between films, Resistance Reborn...

An Intense Monster Movie Worth Owning

Crawl manages to deliver an impressive creature feature that straddles the line between serious thriller and B-movie insanity. It doesn’t reach the goofy levels of direct-to-TV monster flicks, but its...
