Netflix’s D.P. is the Korean Drama for Those Who Don’t Like Korean Dramas

By Anthony Chau Score: 9/10 In my humble uncultured opinion, D.P., a miniseries that serves as an exposé to the horrifying toxic military culture in South Korea, offers some of the best viewing experiences that Korean drama has to offer.  I have a love-hate relationship with Korean dramas. I’ve tried watching many but have onlyContinue reading “Netflix’s D.P. is the Korean Drama for Those Who Don’t Like Korean Dramas”

Bliss: It’s Just Another Simulation

By Courtney Thomas Score: 3/10 While not overtly bad, Bliss felt like a formulaic movie I’d seen many times before. Most simply, it’s a Matrix type sci-fi drama centered around the question of what is real and what isn’t. The plot is confusing, not only because of the real/not real subject matter, but it playsContinue reading “Bliss: It’s Just Another Simulation”

Clickbait: To Be Catfished or Not To Be Catfished?

By Sorenya Miller Score: 8.5/10 This might be the only show Netflix got right for the summer. I was ready to throw in the towel and give the streaming service a break until I was click baited. For those of you that don’t know what “clickbait” means, a quick google search will show you “(Internet)Continue reading “Clickbait: To Be Catfished or Not To Be Catfished?”

Annette: A Surreal and Surprising Musical

By Courtney Thomas Score: 8/10 Leo Carax’s Annette is something of a surreal opera, and not just because Marion Cotillard plays an opera singer. Sound, including sung dialogue, is the most important element in this surprising, experimental, but not impenetrable film about performance, death, and love.  As the opening credits roll, the audience is askedContinue reading “Annette: A Surreal and Surprising Musical”

Another Life: AKA “The Niko Show”

The presence of this object sends the world into a frenzy and on the hunt to make first contact.

Blood Red Sky is Just Fine

By Anthony Chau Score: 6/10 Netflix’s German action-horror, Blood Red Sky, features a mother with a strange illness who boards a transatlantic flight with her young son, only to find that their flight is being hijacked by terrorists.

Loki: Glorious Purpose, Good Enough Results

By Benjamin Rose, Editor Score: 7/10 Loki is a good show weighed down by MCU melodrama and some hit and miss writing. Its greatest strengths lie in humor and a plot that is both intricate and easy to follow. While some of its emotional arcs fall flat and its overarching multiverse narrative leans a littleContinue reading “Loki: Glorious Purpose, Good Enough Results”
