‘Trigger Point’ Review: More Head Shots Than a High School Yearbook

Barry Pepper takes more head shots than a high school yearbook photographer. Trigger Point has the acclaimed character actor portraying an elite assassin who never misses. The film is a lean action thriller with several mysteries at its core. None of which are particularly interesting when the secret villain is laughably obvious in the first … Read more ‘Trigger Point’ Review: More Head Shots Than a High School Yearbook

Kaze And The Wild Masks Review – Making The Old New Again

As a pretty big fan of the genre, I’ve noticed some stagnation in the platformer genre recently. That’s not to say that quality still cannot be found. Efforts such as Light Nightmares II and Cyber Shadow are well worth seeking out. What concerns me, though, is the lack of originality — too often, developers have … Read more Kaze And The Wild Masks Review – Making The Old New Again

But while Thunder Force has … Read more Review: Netflix’s New Superhero Movie Is Comedy Kryptonite

Netflix’s Thunder Force Review: An Original Superhero Comedy That Is Neither Original Nor Comedic

The script is not just overrun with tropes and laborious pacing, but also doesn’t make any sense at points. Thunder Force is based on an original script by Ben Falcone, and while the film clearly didn’t have a massive budget that would allow it to fully explore its baseline supervillain idea, but what’s inexcusable is … Read more Netflix’s Thunder Force Review: An Original Superhero Comedy That Is Neither Original Nor Comedic
