Short Art Has A Different Vibe Than Other Projects I love long-form content: epic scope books, five-hour video essays, and sprawling television shows. I also love binging YouTube Shorts and Instagram Reels. So, today, we’ll talk about short media in a deliberately brief article. I’m talking really short media. Short stories like our own Friday…
From the offset, I was onboard for She-Hulk. I’m not the most knowledgeable person when it comes to comics, but a lawyer who deals with the legal ramifications of superpowered shenanigans is a great premise.
As I’m sure is true of many of its viewers, I’ve not read The Sandman comics. The series finished before I was born, so I hope it’s at least a little forgivable. I watched the show because I love Coraline and deeply enjoyed Good Omens and American Gods. Neil Gaiman tends to make stuff I like, and the trailers looked fantastic.
The most noteworthy thing about Chibi Tiny Tales is that something like it exists. “Chibi” is a term from Japan referring to an animation style of large-headed, overly expressive characters.
Ms. Marvel is blissfully not part of the Marvel slush. It’s not rote or the same story again. Though dealing with a teenager coming of age, it’s not simply Spider-Man with a different protagonist. Instead—within the first three episodes—it becomes a family drama with the superhero aspects simply elevating the emotions.
Amphibia wants to make dark jokes and frog jokes, and it succeeds at both. Or at least that’s what the early episodes are about.
Baymax! is formulaic, predictable, and utterly charming. It brings a smile with every single episode and feels like something special.
my positive reviews of media like The Magnus Archives, Black Mirror, and The Twilight Zone weren’t a clear indication, I have a particular fondness for anthology storytelling.
The Old Guard is perfect at what it wants to be. It’s an action movie with a tight fantastical premise and stellar execution. By chance, I saw a five-minute scene and was immediately hooked.
If you read many of my reviews, you might’ve noticed I have a bias. I’ve spoken about it before: I like unique, wild, and weird. Stories going out of their way to be meta, mind-bending, or commentate on current events or societal ills have often gotten positive reviews from me.
Trailers are their own unique pieces of art. Sometimes better than the movies/shows they go with. The time restraint forces creativity and efficiency. These five are some of the best I’ve seen lately.
The Hollow is a decent enough show mired by gimmick issues. The biggest one is its reliance on the “Mystery Box” model.
