Batwoman – Season 1 Episode 4

“Who Are You?” Batwoman starts to explore how the impact of being a vigilante affects Kate personally as she tries to refine her focus in a way that works for her. The most striking thing about this show is how self assured the lead character is as a contrast to how the show itself seems…

Batwoman – Season 1 Episode 3

“Down Down Down” Batwoman ploughs on with a mixed bag of character interaction and gradual steps to develop Kate towards the hardened vigilante seen in “Elseworlds, as well as some development for the secondary characters. At every point in a hero’s journey they reach a crossroads where they question whether or not what they’re doing…

Batwoman – Season 1 Episode 2

“The Rabbit Hole” Batwoman continues to develop the relationship between Kate and Alice while adding to the mystery surrounding Alice’s identity. The previous episode revealed that the villain known as Alice is actually Kate’s sister Beth who was believed killed in an incident when both of them were children. This episode largely focuses on exploring…

Batwoman – Season 1 Episode 1

“Pilot” The Arrowverse adds another superhero series to its quiver with the Gotham City set Batwoman. Kate Kane’s introduction in last year’s “Elseworlds” crossover was a strong showing for the character, at least in terms of how she might fit into the extensive shared universe that she was immediately a part of. Being able to…

Elseworlds Part 2

The Elseworlds crossover continues with a trip to Gotham City, the introduction of a bat themed vigilante and further development of the mounting threat. After several collective seasons of teasing the Arrowverse finally lets audiences see Gotham City while quickly explaining why neither Batman or Bruce Wayne have been seen before now. It turns our…

Elseworlds Part 1

Elseworlds; the annual DC TV crossover story begins with a -sort of- body switching plot and the promise of a large scale threat. I’ll freely admit that the crossover stories are something I look forward to every year. Even though I don’t always love the shows that participate in them I’m still fully invested in…

The Meg

A prehistoric shark thought to be long extinct finds its way to the civilised world and threatens to cause untold devastation in Jon Turteltaub’s The Meg. I’m a sucker for a monster movie. If there’s a giant creature terrorising people then there’s a good chance I’ll be interested. Based on the marketing The Meg looked like it would…

John Wick: Chapter 2

Chad Stahelski brings back ludicrously skilled assassin John Wick for another bout of mayhem in John Wick: Chapter 2. The first John Wick was one of my favourite films of that year and after recently rewatching it I would definitely stay it stands the test of -the admittedly short- time. There’s almost nothing to it…

Resident Evil: The Final Chapter

Paul W.S. Anderson -apparently- closes off the video game adaptation he began with Resident Evil: The Final Chapter. I will go on record saying that I enjoy the Resident Evil games and movies. The games have been with me from a very young age as something I have always enjoyed and the movies are fairly…
