The Reviewinator: Pirates of the Caribbean – Dead Men Tell No Tales (2017)

Johnny Depp created one of the most iconic protagonists in cinema history with his off-the-wall portrayal of Captain Jack Sparrow in 2003 that earned him an Oscar nomination. Sadly, the sequels did little more than rehash the same old shtick … Continue reading

The Reviewinator: Alien – Covenant (2017)

Am I the only one who’s noticed that Ridley Scott is going the George Lucas route with the Alien franchise? Not that that’s a bad thing, as he’s a far better filmmaker even on his worst day. But there has … Continue reading

The Reviewinator: Marvel’s Iron Fist (Season 1)

Sometimes I don’t get myself. I’m not a comic book fan, I’m not really a superhero fan, and yet once I commit a certain amount of binge time to something, I feel the need to see it through to the … Continue reading

The Reviewinator: The Walking Dead (Season 7)

After a frustratingly-long wait following a frustratingly-deceptive Season 6 finale, the infamous P.O.V. character death is finally revealed midway through the Season 7 premiere. Does it satisfy? Does it infuriate? It all depends on which characters you’re most attached to. … Continue reading

The Reviewinator: Logan (2017)

With all the comic book movies out there, none have endured as long as the X-Men franchise. Beginning in 2000, Logan/Wolverine was front and center from the get-go and he has since appeared in every single movie in the series. 17 … Continue reading

The Reviewinator: Resident Evil – The Final Chapter (2017)

15 years is an impressive run for any franchise, but infinitely more impressive for one like Resident Evil that’s comprised mostly of over-the-top and mind-numbingly ridiculous entries with virtually no sense of narrative consistency whatsoever. And as a fan of the video games, it’s … Continue reading

The Reviewinator: Patriots Day (2016)

The Boston Marathon bombing was a tragic act of terrorism that shook the world. The harrowing five-day nightmare was watched by millions, either by seeing it on the news or by following it on social media. Updates were frequent and … Continue reading

The Reviewinator: Rogue One – A Star Wars Story (2016)

8 movies in, not including Episode VIII (or is it 10 movies in, if you include the Ewok movies?), and we get the first non-episodic Star Wars movie, taking place between Episodes III & IV. While some may think of it as Episode 3.5, it’s more … Continue reading

The Reviewinator: Ash vs. Evil Dead (Season 2)

After a very groovy first season, we’re back with Ash and his ‘Ghostbeaters’ for Season 2. Evil Dead fans got what they wanted last year, with Ash back to his chainsaw-wielding habits, slicing up hilariously over-the-top new deadites spun from … Continue reading

The Reviewinator: Star Trek Beyond (2016)

50 years. It’s not easy making it this far. Star Trek really has tried to cover a lot of territory in all that time. After 5 TV shows consisting of 28 seasons (725 episodes), and (now) 13 movies, the fact … Continue reading
