The Poppy War by R. F. Kuang—Adaptability Review

If you have read my reviews for Mulan (2020), Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings (2021), or my blurb about Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon (2000) in my "15 International Films on Netflix to Watch While In Quarantine" article from early 2020, you would know that I absolutely adore Chinese fantasy. By far my …

The Invisible Life of Addie LaRue by V.E. Schwab—Adaptability Review

There were several years where I had zero joy in reading, mostly caused from the forced nature of reading for school and the lack of knowing a good series to fall into. The two books that made me fall in love with reading again was V.E. Schwab's A Darker Shade of Magic and Emily St. …

Godzilla vs. Kong (2021)—Review

I love kaiju films. From the very first King Kong (1933) to the incredible reign of Toho films, beginning with Godzilla (1954), to our new age of films such as Peter Jackson's King Kong (2005), Pacific Rim (2013), and Shin Godzilla (2016). Trying to capture Disney's success with the Marvel Cinematic Universe, all of the …

Zack Snyder’s Justice League—Review

As a huge comic book fan, one of the largest disappointments in cinema over the recent years has been Zack Snyder's Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) and Justice League (2017). That said, the 2017 Justice League film has had an asterisk for the way the film was treated during production. Throughout the entire …
