REVIEW: Ready Player One (2018)

Theatrical Release Poster – Warner Bros. Pictures

The following is a review of Ready Player One — Directed by Steven Spielberg.

Steven Spielberg — you won’t find many directors as skilled as he is, and you probably won’t ever find a filmmaker with as good an eye for entertainment as he has. His name is etched into the world of film and pop culture, and there really are not many like him. It is pretty perfect for the director behind such films as Jurassic Park, the Indiana Jones-films, and E.

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…)
