The School for Good and Evil is a fun fantasy movie with a surprising amount of narrative depth while also being goofy, self-indulgent, and occasionally seriously questionable. I’ll spend some time ragging on it, mostly for its botched train wreck of an ending, but if you want an escapist movie full of fairy tale shenanigans, this has some promise. Read the whole review to see what I mean.

The Luminous Dead is perhaps one of the hardest reviews I’ve done in a long time. The nature of the work has clashed with my usual operations.
Hello, dear readers. It’s been a year, hasn’t it? So much has happened—some of it strange, some of it frightening, some of it joyous. A year is so long and so short. And New Year’s Eve is here already.
And we’re on to part three of the retrospective. The final part. We’re flipping the script back to positive and shifting topics slightly. It might be a little self-indulgent, but I can also review the media I’ve produced: Friday Fictions. If you’ve been mostly reading our reviews and haven’t gone over to that side of the site, here’s a quick dive into my (very subjective) list of which ones I think are the best.
Now it’s time for the negativity. The stuff I least enjoyed reviewing. I’ve sandwiched this part between two positive articles, so we don’t end this retrospective on a low note.
I’ve written many articles this year and reviewed piles of movies, tons of shows, and even a few books. And while a lot of media flees my memory once I’m done reviewing it, a few things were so good and memorable that they’ve stuck with me throughout the year. And in the same vein, some media pieces were so disappointing that I still wish for a better version.
The strangest part about knowing the future might not be the events that will happen but seeing the windup to them. How we lay the foundation for our own lives with distinct choices, some obvious, some seemingly insignificant.
Klaus is a heartwarming, magical, wonderful film that does what the best Disney and Pixar movies manage and is instantly a classic.
You may have heard of CEDH before. It’s a way of playing Commander where you focus on ruthlessly winning the game as fast as possible. But, for those who play Arena, only one option comes close to either version of Commander: Brawl.
It’s safe to say that the holiday season is in full swing now. And, for those who buy presents for their holiday(s), it can be (or already has been) stressful.
When you watch as many things as I do and go out of your way to analyze them, you find a lot of flaws. Even stuff people normally like have landed with a flat nothing for me. Maybe I’m jaded or simply know too much about plot structure. But the upside is when I find something transcendentally good, the experience is all the better. Sometimes, it can make my entire week.
