REVIEW: Jessica Jones – Season One (2015)

Jessica Jones Season Review

The following is a season one review of Marvel’s Jessica Jones, a Netflix Original show.

Marvel’s Jessica Jones is a Netflix Original show created by Melissa Rosenberg, of Twilight and Dexter-fame, which continues the Netflix adventure for the Disney owned Marvel Universe. Set in the same world as Marvel’s Daredevil and the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Jessica Jones continues our journey to The Defenders mini-series. And while Jones’ villain, Kilgrave, wasn’t as complex as Wilson Fisk was in Marvel’s Daredevil, Kilgrave was much scarier. Jessica Jones‘ debut season is just as great as Daredevil‘s first season was. (more…)

Dagobah Day #7 – How Bad Is The Prequel Trilogy?

I'm Jeffrey Rex' Dagobah Day

Yes, the Prequels are treated terribly by most Star Wars fans. No, they aren’t great films. But yes, they do have fans. Now, while I am not one of the aforementioned Prequel fans, I do think the trilogy gets more criticism than it deserves. (more…)

The following is a classic review of Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi, a Richard Marquand film. Expect spoilers.

1983 – Return of the Jedi – the end of the original trilogy. While Empire Strikes Back is definitely the best film, Return of the Jedi was my favorite film when I was younger. And there is a simple reason why this film, though not the best of the three, is remembered so fondly by so many people. Return of the Jedi is the most satisfying Star Wars film. (more…)

REVIEW: Master of None – Season One

Master of None Review

The following is a review of the first season of Netflix’s Master of None, created by Aziz Ansari & Alan Yang.

Whether you know Aziz Ansari from stand-up, from Scrubs as ‘Big’ Ed Dhandapani, or as Tom Haverford in Parks and Recreation you should know that he is a really funny guy. Now, after having worked with Netflix on Buried Alive and Live at Madison Square Garden, he is premiering his first TV-show with him as the main character as a Netflix Original Show. Just like Scrubs or Parks and Recreation it is a fun sitcom, but it also works as a social satire – Netflix has struck gold. (more…)
