When We First Met

A man relives the day he met the woman of his dreams over and over again in an attempt to perfect the experience so that she falls in love with him in Ari Sandel’s When We First Met. At first glance the subject matter of this film might seem really problematic as it can easily…

The Flash – Season 3 Episode 18

“Abra Kadabra” The Flash introduces a villain from the future who claims to know Savitar’s true identity and offers it in exchange for letting him go. In every superhero story there will eventually be the impossible choice where the hero can’t possibly make the right one. Abra Kadabra (David Dastmalchian) represents that for Barry and…

The Flash – Season 3 Episode 17

“Duet” The Flash crosses over with Supergirl when Barry and Kara are put in a shared coma fantasy where life is an old timey musical. I’ll preface this by saying that this episode will definitely be a “mileage may vary” sort of episode as your enjoyment will largely depend on whether or not you like musicals….

The Flash – Season 3 Episode 16

“Into the Speed Force” The Flash sends Barry into the Speed Force in an attempt to rescue Wally from the prison that he was tricked into by Savitar. This episode counts as something of a sequel to “The Runaway Dinosaur” in that both share the plot detail of Barry interacting with the Speed Force on a…

The Flash – Season 2 Episode 1

The Man Who Saved Central City It’s been a long wait but The Flash has finally returned for its sophomore season. When we last saw Barry Allen he was leaping head first into a singularity that was tearing Central City apart in an attempt to stop it. My expectation was that the opening minutes of this episode would…

The Flash – Season 1 Episode 23

“Fast Enough” Season 1 of The Flash comes to an end and I don’t think the conclusion was anywhere near what anyone was expecting. I know I certainly wasn’t but in this case unpredictability is a very good thing. On shows like this we’re probably all used to the season finale boiling down to the…

The Flash – Season 1 Episode 22

“Rogue Air” One more episode of The Flash to go and things are now fully in place for what is sure to be an interesting season finale next week. There’s something of a tying up loose ends feel to this episode but that’s not necessarily a bad thing given that The Flash has built such…

On the D/L – The Flash

Season 1 Episode 14 – “Fallout” The Flash concludes the 2 part Firestorm arc that has ran all season -pretty much- but was brought into the foreground last week. Picking up right where the last episode left off with the aftermath of Stein/Ronnie’s explosion the episode shows us that the device worked and the pair…

On the D/L – The Flash

Season 1 Episode 13 – “The Nuclear Man” The Flash gives plenty of payoff to the Firestorm subplot that has been quietly running in the background the last few episodes. The death of Ronnie Raymond during the accelerator explosion is something that we saw really early on in the run of this show and it…
