‘Black Mirror’ Top 5 Episodes Before Season 4

The 4th season of “Black Mirror” just dropped on Netflix and for those that haven’t seen the show, I’d put it on your must watch list for 2018. As you may know, Black Mirror is a sci-fi anthology series that features episodes in modern society centered around ramifications of innovative technology. For many people, the first episode can be a bit too much but if you can stick with the show, it is worth it (will be talking about that in a minute). With the 4th installment, “Black Mirror” continues to bring forward incredibly complex and controversial plots. As a modern “Twilight Zone,” the series finds a nice blend of creative sci-fi plots and compelling storylines with superb acting. It is refreshing to see such original content with extreme plot twists and intriguing storytelling that can leave your jaw open questioning, “did they just go there?” Not many sci-fi shows can claim this. Before you begin watching season 4, here are my top 5 episodes from the previous 3 seasons. Disclaimer, I will do my best to not spoil any of the episodes.

What Defines A Christmas Movie And What Films Classify

When it comes to Christmas films, there is an adequate amount of subjectivity in regards to the which movies can be considered a holiday tradition. Movies like “Elf” or “A Christmas Story” are apparently influenced by the holiday while other films like “Die Hard” or “Gremlins” are constantly debated. So how is a film categorized as a Christmas movie?

A Look Back at Recent Trailers (1)

I’ve had this idea to make a feature out of looking at a bunch of recent trailers. You may have noticed our lack of articles for each new trailer coming out, mostly due to just how many come out at once sometimes. Now in each of these specific cases I watched them at times when it wasn’t possible to do a reaction video. So consider this a pilot-article so to speak. If this goes well I’ll try to make sure I have a reaction video with each. For now enjoy just reading my thoughts after each trailer.

Star Wars The Last Jedi: Why The Hate Is Indisputably Understandable

Midway through my review for “The Last Jedi” I have this thought weighing heavily on my shoulders. The film is visually fantastic, the lightsaber battles are amazingly well choreographed, and overall everything is well structured and cohesive throughout. But despite this movie hitting the mark as a standalone entity, it left me feeling unsatisfied as a Star Wars fan. After two years of speculation and anticipation, I can see why the hate exists and as a fanboy, I’d like to take this opportunity to further elaborate.

Top 5 Best Moments From the ‘Star Wars’ Saga

“Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi” (because I REFUSE to call it just “Star Wars The Last Jedi”) is out. Like many other fans I’m spending the time re-watching the older films in preparation. This time I actually do have a legit excuse in introducing them to my girlfriend because if we can’t get over this hurdle then I have serious doubts in the future of our relationship. Sorry hun. Anyway I felt it was time to go over what are my favorite moments from all the films. SPOILER ALERT! Let’s begin!

Top 5 Favorite Westerns (That Aren’t The Good The Bad and The Ugly)

Last week I talked about my favorite western while covering the work of Sergio Leone. I’ve wanted to talk about westerns for a long time. However, if I mentioned them all, then most of the entries would be taken up by one director’s filmography. Then, there’d barely be any reason to talk about the remainder films of Leone which deserve discussion. I decided to separate them to be able to more fully discuss them all. So just remember the true number one of this list is “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly” so just shift everything down and after “Unforgiven” shift everything down again to account for “A Fistful of Dollars” and “For a Few Dollars More” tying for the next spot.

Eric’s Guide Through Sergio Leone Films

Sergio Leone’s name doesn’t ring the same bells as other masters like Kubrick and Hitchcock, but he should! I’ve wanted to talk about to Westerns for some time. Although it would be a shame if most of the spots would be taken up by one filmmaker. So I figured I go over this and then tackle my other favorites after I’m done talking about Sergio Leone. A few SPOILERS ahead.

Is Pixar’s ‘Coco’ Really a Ripoff of ‘Book of The Life?’

I considered doing a regular review of Pixar’s “Coco,” but what’s the point? I mean it’s Pixar! I knew it was going to be good, you all knew it was going to be good. There’s a reason the Oscar for Best Animated feature is nicknamed the Pixar Prize. There are times they’ve won despite not even deserving it. That’s a fault of most voters lack of interest/respect in the medium. However, THAT’S a whole other discussion. “Coco” is quite simply a brilliant film and another instant classic for Pixar. All the praise it’s getting is deserved. But what almost always comes with praise? Backlash! For this film the main source of the backlash is the existence of an earlier film “The Book of Life.”

5 Things We Want to See in ‘Stranger Things’ Season 3

“Stranger Things” is something that if my little sister hadn’t pressed me on it’s possible that it would have passed me by like many other acclaimed Netflix series I just don’t watch. So thanks Lily! I wanted to wait to make sure plenty of readers had finished. Overall I thought the new season was pretty good. A little “Ghostbusters 2”-ish with a little too much repeating, but enough new stuff to make it worth it. Still I love the show and can’t wait to see whatever is coming next. Some things I’m more excited about than others. I think it’s self explanatory, but SPOLIERS ahead.
