i'm thinking of ending things review

“I’m thinking of ending things.” So thinks a young woman (Jessie Buckley) as she sets off for a road trip with her boyfriend Jake (Jesse Plemons) to meet Jake’s parents. The young couple has been dating for about six weeks, and there’s a spark between them – albeit an awkward one. But as the car plods on, the snow drifts down, and the wiper blades hypnotically cut back and forth, the young woman can’t shake that thought, lodged in her brain like song lyrics, or a parasite. “I’m thinking of ending things.” Just what is she thinking of ending? The relationship with Jake? Or something else? And why is Jake suddenly acting so strange?

Big Mouth Season 2 Trailer

The first season of Big Mouth quietly became one of the best animated shows for adults out there right now. And that’s exactly why Netflix gave the series from Nick Kroll and Andrew Goldberg a second season, coming this October.

The second season of Big Mouth picks up right where the last season left off, which means our loveable group of dirty-minded 7th graders are continuing to deal with the emotional baggage that comes with growing up. Hormones are still raging, which means the Hormone Monsters are back to make the realities of discovery, body image shame, birth control, and countless other excruciating formative moments that much more difficult. Find out what they’re dealing with in the Big Mouth season 2 trailer below. Read More »

Fargo Season 3 Finale

(Every week, we’re going to kick off a discussion about Fargo season 3 by answering one simple question: who f*cked up the most this week?)

The third season of Fargo opened with two characters who have polar opposite views of the world, and that’s exactly how it ended. The series began with a man who was not Yuri Gurka, but according to another character’s set of rules, he was. He was the killer because the government official wanted him to be. A simple coincidence, a name and address, disrupted or ruined the man’s life, which is nothing new on Noah Hawley‘s series.

Keith Gordon directed this week’s unpredictable finale, which packed a heavy punch. Below, read our review of the Fargo season 3 finale.

wonder woman spoiler review

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman.)

It’s astounding that in this day and age, when superheroes are either disillusioned or self-deprecating, that we can have a hero like Wonder Woman. In the bleak DC Cinematic Universe, where nihilism reigns supreme, here we have a hero who champions the ideas of hope, compassion, and goodness.

Diana (Gal Gadot) is not dissimilar from the Disney princesses, who have long been heroes of overwhelming empathy. They are aspirational figures who exist in an elevated reality — fairy tales themselves are metaphorical by nature, and rarely depict anything other than a black and white reality. This is Diana at the beginning of the film, the embodiment of the ultimate Disney princess, for all the gifts and faults that they have — though thankfully without the frequently troublesome depiction of an “evil” mother or stepmother figure commonly seen in fairy tales.

Fargo The Law of Inevitability Review

(Every week, we’re going to kick off a discussion about Fargo season 3 by answering one simple question: who f*cked up the most this week?)

The blue streak continues on Fargo. Life has never been worse for Sy Feltz (Michael Stuhlbarg), Emmit Stussy (Ewan McGregor), and maybe Nikki Swango (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), who’s mysterious and world-weary enough to indicate season 3 of Fargo is far from her first bad time in Minnesota. Noah Hawley‘s FX series experiences the shockwave of last week’s shocking episode in “The Law of Inevitability,” in which Chief Moe Dammick (Shea Whigham) enlightens us on the mashed potato theory and how he proceeds when the sun is out.

Below, check out our latest Fargo review.
