Well, this is it. The series is done. I started writing these articles in 2016, right before season six started. It seems like such a long time ago, three years and two seasons. Almost seems like a simpler time, when Jon was coming back from the dead and Dany was getting reintroduced to the Dothraki. […]

Honestly, I don’t know what I’m supposed to tell you about this week’s episode. I had to watch it again immediately after it was over. There’s so much to process, so much to go over, and I only get one article to do it in. It feels patently unfair, but God still hasn’t read any […]

With two episodes left, it’s very clear to everyone involved – the producers, the audience, the actors and the set designers — that we need to pump the gas on Game of Thrones. Great War down, Last War to go, no time for stray coffee cups on the dining table, it’s time to kill off […]

There is a lot to say about Black Panther. News agencies have been reporting the stunning streak the film has had at the box office, clearing $500 million in it’s opening week (and $700 million by the 2nd weekend after opening). Education advocates point out how important it is for young people to see representation […]

Perhaps young adult fiction is not my thing. Perhaps I am a little too old, a little too far removed from high school. Whatever the reason, this book, full of clichés about high school groups never resonated with me. Is my memory fading? Or is it that, in the halls of my school, I missed […]

The Dragons I can’t think of a better way to start talking about the season seven finale of Game of Thrones than by talking about Daenerys Stormborn. When we first saw her, she was a girl with nothing and everything. In one sense, she had nothing because she had no agency, no chance for self-determination. […]

It’s hard for me not to think of Dungeons and Dragons when I watch Game of Thrones…

It’s hard for me to say, but this season of Game of Thrones is shaping up to be a vast improvement over its last two predecessors. Season five saw an end to some of the richer political interactions in King’s Landing, and encounters with the wildlings were, while interesting, sporadic and less gleeful. Season six […]

Episode three for a new season is a tough nut to crack. In season six of Game of Thrones, I told you that the third episode is where most TV shows hit a slump, a downturn in the action to focus on suspense-building and drama. But with hindsight, I can say that it only seems […]

Click Here to read all of our coverage from 2017 San Diego Comic-Con Supergirl ended its second season (its first at new home The CW) with two pretty big cliffhangers- Mon-El left earth (and Kara), fleeing the planet’s new toxic-to-Daxamites atmosphere, then flew into a mysterious wormhole of some kind; and we saw a flashback […]

*some mild spoilers below* Let’s be honest with ourselves – a full third of the reasons people want to see the second installment of the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise is Baby Groot. Ever since the end of the first movie, people have been obsessing over the little guy. We loved him as a loveable […]

Never in my life – up until a few years ago – did I think there’d be a new Star Wars trailer, let alone a need to analyse one; but we live in a new world. An exciting, scary, but ultimately great new world for a lifelong Star Wars fan: suddenly, what we thought we […]

I had so much fun recording last year’s Force Awakens podcast with my Star Wars-obsessed friend Andrew Patti that I invited him back to talk Rogue One. Just a few hours before recording, we learned of the passing of Carrie Fisher, an icon in so many ways but mostly an icon of the Star Wars […]

The Force Awakens was the female-led Heroes Journey I’d dreamed of through a tomboy childhood. Rogue One is just flat out an amazing Star Wars movie. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story may be the most aptly named film to come out this year. It’s a fantastically well-made, well-loved Star Wars film that manages to […]

It is easy to become cynical about the state of modern movie making – to focus on the role that international sales (mostly to China) and established franchises play in making a movie profitable and to assume, as it can be easy to assume, that this means the death of art. But movie making has […]

To celebrate the penultimate film in the Divergent Series, eOne Films has put together an awesome prize pack to give away to one of our readers. Allegiant, Part 1– starring Shailene Woodley and every man who’s every played her love interest (Theo James! Miles Teller! Ansel Elgort!)- is in theatres now but you have until […]

For the past three years, I’ve been ranking every film I see- just the new releases, from January 1st to December 31st. The rankings are subjective, based entirely on how much I enjoyed and/or connected with or appreciated the film rather than on some sort of objective artistic criteria. Basically, this is a list of […]

The most annoying thing about the new Showcase/Syfy show adapted from Lev Grossman’s 2009 novel The Magicians is honestly just that it’s called “The Magicians” (and the promotional image to the right, that’s also very annoying for lots of reasons both feminist and aesthetic). It’s your basic CW-ish college-age fantasy drama. The mythology is complicated, […]

It’s been almost a month since Star Wars: The Force Awakens hit theatres and the money just keeps rolling in. The film made a billion dollars in its first 12 days and is set to overtake Titanic to become the second-highest grossing film of all time. More importantly, though, it’s actually a good movie! Well, […]

It is my humble opinion that, when it comes to a cultural landmark movie like Star Wars: The Force Awakens, even opinions and critical consensus constitute a spoiler. For that reason, I’ll throw up a great, big SPOILER WARNING right here, even though I am going to make a concerted effort not to ACTUALLY spoil […]

There’s nothing quite like the midnight movie (okay, I’m old now, I snuck into a 10:30 showing). The hordes of fans excited for the same thing as you. The energy when that first Marvel Movie credit comes up. The giggling at the in jokes – the clapping at the easter eggs hinting at future awesomeness. […]
