Daredevil – Season 2 Review

When I reviewed Season 1 of Daredevil, I dared to hope that the characters from Marvel’s Netflix MCU offshoot would make the leap to the big screen to join in the “Infinity Wars”.

Despite its instant cliché status, it makes a good point though because this adaptation of Thomas Pynchon’s 2009 novel, is … Continue reading Inherent Vice (2015) Review
