Hot off my second play of Dragon Age: Inquisition, I thought Origins was my time to be an archer. I paid for that hubris with blood and tears.
Apparently, the more good stuff I have to watch, the quieter I get about it. Here’s some stuff I saw this year.
Including the stuff I saw at TIFF before I was too exhausted to keep going to stuff at TIFF.
Full review of Papi Chulo over at PopMatters (external link).
Full review of Teen Spirit over at PopMatters (external link).
Full review of Greta over at PopMatters (external link).
Full review of Endzeit at PopMatters (external link).
Full review of Vox Lux at PopMatters (external link).
Over at PopMatters, I desperately try to react to Nanette (external link).
In which I like a lot of things more than I thought I was going to.
In which I completely refuse to engage with the premise of the game I’ve been excited for all year.
As promised, I have a lot more to say about this movie (that I liked) over at PopMatters (external link).
In which I describe an imaginary third-season reboot that could put those feelings to rest.
In which Thoroughbreds may become my all-time favourite movie and The Dark Tower ruins the one thing I liked about it.
I re-watched the ten worst Voyager episodes as identified by strangers on the internet.
“Voyager kept changing producers” is a boring explanation for why this show was so uneven, but it’s also probably accurate.
I talk more about Annihilation and its sale to Netflix over at PopMatters (external link).
Annihilation, Jumanji, and Pitch Perfect 3 are all better than they sound like they’re going to be.
Derren Brown’s new Netflix special asks the uncomfortable question: How far will a TV personality go to get ratings? The answer is: distressingly far.
I will forever ask myself why I was willing to watch a reboot of Star Trek, and Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but not Blade Runner 2049, which is better than both of them.
