Six episodes, five Queen songs in the fifth episode, four friends, horseman, and demonic wheels; three wheels on a tricar, two main angels (one fallen), and one flaming sword. And if that’s not enough to get you to watch Amazon Prime’s Good Omens, then remember, it’s based on a novel written by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett!Declassify >
Recently I watched The Matrix for the first time. Yes, in 2019 I watched 1999’s The Matrix for the first time. Twenty years is a long time to be late to the party on something but I shouldn’t be vilified for not being a part of it, I should be welcomed to the party.
As I write this, I don’t know what the reaction will be, because I sat down with Bill on The Wicked Theory Podcast to discuss my first reactions to this twenty-year-old film, and that episode has not yet dropped.Declassify >
Spoiler Free Review
There is something wholeheartedly endearing about Mike Schlossberg’s first foray into fiction. Something that is not unique to Schlossberg, or to myself, but which is often lost in science fiction is our humanity.Declassify >
Some of the most visually stunning pieces of art are landscapes. And as breathtaking as nature can be all on its own, the talents of some artists apply that beauty and that inspiration towards fictional landscapes. Some that we are faintly aware of and others that we know by heart.Declassify >
Ready Player One is an amazing film. It’s fun, it’s filled with pop culture references, and it follows the book as much as a film can. But it’s not the book, which does not surprise me, and you should read the book, and you should also go see the film. What follows in this review is just the old man rant, that I had to get out of my system, and one that is kinda pointless because I did love the film.
Now, I attempted to go into this film with an open mind, which is how you need to view such things as movies based upon books that you love.Declassify >
