MOVIE REVIEW: Deadpool

MOVIE REVIEW: Deadpool

By Jason Pickup

Usually I preface any movie review with a blurb about how this post might contain spoilers. That’s kind of unnecessary here. Oh sure, there are plenty of balls in the movie but none of them are of the curving variety. A

TV REVIEW: Ash vs Evil Dead 1.7 – Fire in the Hole

TV REVIEW: Ash vs Evil Dead 1.7 - Fire in the Hole

By Jason Pickup

When last we left our crew, they were soaked in blood after breakfast went off the rails. Ash actually comes up with a fairly solid plan this week, having had the idea dropped into his head last week that there

TV REVIEW: Ash vs Evil Dead 1.6 - The Killer of Killers

By Jason Pickup

When last we left our crew they had paid their respects to Brujo and were off to where this all started, that awful cabin in the woods (no not THAT cabin), to destroy the Necronomicon once and for all. But

TV REVIEW: Ash vs Evil Dead 1.5 - The Host

By Jason Pickup

When last we left our crew, dream state Ash almost killed Eligos possessed Kelly (Kelligos?) for being, well, possessed by Eligos. Kelligos of course spins it to make it seem like Ash is the one possessed by the demon, because

TV REVIEW: Gotham 2.9 – “A Bitter Pill to Swallow”

TV REVIEW: Gotham 2.9 "A Bitter Pill to Swallow"

By Jason Pickup

I’m willing to forgive “A Bitter Pill to Swallow” for not advancing the plot this week because, while we barely moved much from last week, what we got from Gotham was a great hour of character development. There are certain shows,

TV REVIEW: Gotham 2.8 - Tonight's the Night

By Jason Pickup

Have you ever finished a television show and immediately got mad at the show? Not because you’re upset about what you saw, but, the show ended just as all heck breaks loose and you need immediate closure? Now granted, “all

TV REVIEW: Ash vs Evil Dead 1.2 – Bait

TV REVIEW: Ash vs Evil Dead 1.2 - Bait

By Jason Pickup

When last we left our intrepid crew they were blood-soaked in Ash’s trailer, having bested the first real Deadite onslaught. Not much changes in “Bait”, by the end our intrepid crew will be blood-soaked, just in a farmhouse instead of

TV REVIEW: Gotham 2.7 - Mommy's Little Monster

By Jason Pickup

Well, that escalated quickly. Once again, this week’s episode, much like last week, sinks its hooks into you in the first five minutes; the plus side is this week once the hooks are in and the floor drops out we

TV REVIEW: Ash vs Evil Dead 1.1 – El Jefe

TV REVIEW: Ash vs Evil Dead 1.1 - Jefe

By Jason Pickup

It’s been 34 years since we first ventured to that tiny cabin in backwater Tennessee where it all went wrong,  28 years since souls were swallowed and 23 years since we hailed the king. But thanks to Starz and a

TV REVIEW: Gotham 2.6 – By Fire

TV REVIEW: Gotham 2.6 - By Fire

By Jason Pickup

The opening five minutes of “By Fire” are great, possibly some of my favorite minutes of this season of Gotham, watching a wounded Butch attempt to worm his way into Galavan’s employ. But while that’s going on you can’t help

TV REVIEW: Gotham 2.5 – Scarification

TV REVIEW: Gotham 2.5 - Scarification

By Jason Pickup

If we’re continuing the car metaphors to describe this season of Gotham, “Scarification” is the rest stop. Look, it was bound to happen and they picked a perfect place to get out and stretch their legs. This isn’t one of those

TV REVIEW: Gotham 2.4 – Strike Force

TV REVIEW: Gotham 2.4 - Strike Force

By Jason Pickup

“Strike Force” slows down the pace on Gotham this week. Not a crawl mind you, but after the breakneck speed of the season’s opening we’ve definitely let off of the gas some. Gotham is still keeping its focus and direction

TV REVIEW: Gotham 2.3 – Last Laugh

TV REVIEW: Gotham 2.3 - Last Laugh

By Jason Pickup

So, we are now three episodes into season two of Gotham and it’s now fair to say, this year is a whole new ball game. “Last Laugh” brings us another week of a cohesive, tight plot line that manages to

TV REVIEW: Gotham 2.2 – Knock Knock

TV REVIEW: Gotham 2.2 - Knock Knock

By Jason Pickup

When Gotham returned last week, the first episode was a much better effort than the bulk of season one due to one simple fact: The KISS principle. No, not cameos from a mediocre, aging rock band; rather by Keeping It Simple,
