House of Cards Season 4: TV REVIEW/SPOILERS

House of Cards is an interesting beast. Ever since the show has been airing (or streaming) on Netflix, I’ve always put up a review of the recent season since it gets clicks/coverage, and also because I’m a fan of the show. I thought the first two seasons of the show were brilliant and twisty, and…

The Revenant: MOVIE REVIEW

The Revenant somehow pulls off the feat of being a gorgeous and beautiful disaster. A film that features some of the most striking and mind-blowing cinematography and visuals of any film in this century but also feels lifeless and often very boring at times. This is the long gestating project from Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu, the director…
