The Real WW2 History of Netflix’s Munich: The Edge of War

One of the best aspects about Netflix and director Christian Schwochow’s Munich: The Edge of War is how acutely it makes you feel like it’s 1938. With its clandestine midnight meetings in hotel rooms and ministry offices, and its strained government officials struggling to grasp the full horror of what’s staring them in the face, the new film reminds audiences of the indecision and uncertainties which clouded the view for many on the path to World War II. Yet with the film’s thriller plotting—complete with a last ditch effort by a German official to meet with British Prime Minister Neville…

Lost in Space Season 3: All Your Robot Questions Answered

This article contains spoilers for Lost in Space season 3. There’s nothing a human being loves to see on screen more than a robot.  Maybe it’s because the idea of a robot forces us to reckon with the act of creation and ultimately empathize with whatever created us having to watch helplessly as we stumble from one existential crisis to another. Or maybe it’s just because robots are cute and say “beep beep boop boop.” Whatever the reason, no sci-fi franchise understands humanity’s fascination with robots better than Lost in Space. The 1965 TV series established one of the all-time…

The Witcher Season 2 Will Push the Boundaries of Fantasy TV

Netflix’s The Witcher is one of the streamer’s most popular offerings, an epic fantasy teeming with magic, monsters, and complex characters with weighty, potentially world-saving destinies shared between them. Its first season featured thrilling fight sequences, a banger of a folk ballad about our titular monster-slaying hero, and a non-linear timeline that is occasionally as frustrating as it is fun to unravel. And though things will reportedly become a bit more chronological in the show’s second season, the interconnected stakes have never been higher for our favorite characters. Emotional richness sets The Witcher apart from many of the other big-name…

True Story and the Diverse Career of Wesley Snipes

He’s a five-time black belt who showed off a fluid brutality in action films such as the Blade franchise; yet when he went to school, he was originally convinced his future and passion lay in performative dance. He’s a four-time winner of the NAACP Image Awards; he’s played villains, criminals, and that one bleached-blond fiend who wanted to blow up Sylvester Stallone in Demolition Man.

Give Yourself a Break, Watch the Dub

If you venture into any part of the anime community, eventually you’ll come across a debate that has raged for decades. Dubs v. subs. The argument has been ongoing ever since anime first started gaining a large audience outside of Japan. Some prefer watching anime with an English dub. Others prefer watching the original Japanese audio with the aid of English subtitles. While to some this is merely a personal preference, the debate between the two camps can get extremely heated especially on the side of “sub purists.” To them, the only true way to experience anime is how it…

Could She-Ra Come to Masters of the Universe: Revelation Season 2?

This article contains spoilers for Masters of the Universe: Revelation part 2. The end of Masters of the Universe: Revelation Part 2 dropped a huge bomb on the audience. Skeletor was overpowered by none other than someone seemingly working for Hordak, the main villain of the original 1985 She-Ra series. It blew open the doors of the world of MoTU: Revelation and made it seem like elements of She-Ra could be a major part of any potential second season. However, MoTU: Revelation executive producer Kevin Smith tells us that isn’t for certain. “The only thing that I’ve been told over…

Hellbound: How Park Jungja’s Fate Could Drive Season 2

This Hellbound article contains MAJOR spoilers for both the Netflix series and Train to Busan. While the tradition K-drama model is a one-and-done format, with one full story spanning an entire season and coming to a definitive conclusion, Hellbound feels different.

How Masters of the Universe: Revelation’s Grand Plan for He-Man and Skeletor Came Together

Warning: This Masters of the Universe: Revelation article contains spoilers for parts 1 and 2. Masters of the Universe: Revelation is a true love letter to He-Man fans. Crafted in part by filmmaker Kevin Smith, a longtime fan of all things geeky, the first part of the Netflix series was filled to the brim with references, deep cuts, and a reverent treatment of its source material, the original 1980s He-Man and the Masters of the Universe animated series. It 100% succeeded in what it set out to do but it wasn’t afraid to take risks.  The biggest of which was,…

Hellbound Monsters Explained

Hellbound is an interesting speculative fiction piece in that, while it initially presents its central conflict as one between humanity and something supernatural and/or divine, it is actually much more ambitiously interested in exploring the very human reactions and systems that spring up as a result of the supernatural phenomenon. That being said, there are still monsters in this show, and therefore we still have many questions about what they might be—especially given that, by the first season’s conclusion, we still don’t have any in-world conclusions. That means we have to extrapolate some conclusions from the evidence we do have.…
