First Impressions: Jessica Jones Season 2 is an Intriguing Slow Burn

First Impressions: Jessica Jones Season 2 is an Intriguing Slow Burn

Review, Television
Tai Freligh reviews the first five episodes of Jessica Jones Season 2… When Netflix offered up the first five episodes of Jessica Jones Season 2 for media review, I jumped on the chance.  I’m a sucker for all the Marvel shows on Netflix and have watched every single one (and yes, that includes the much maligned Iron Fist).  Jessica Jones was not the first superhero show that Marvel aired on Netflix, but it was close (second only to Daredevil).  It was a different beast.  All the Marvel heroes are reluctant to some extent, but Jessica took it to a whole new level of indifference.  Dark and brooding, angry and alcoholic, Jessica Jones tried to stay in the shadows, running her little detective agency, Alias.  The events of the first season and the very public and brutal…

Review – Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Blu-ray Bonus Features

Review – Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle Blu-ray Bonus Features

Movies, Review
Tai Freligh reviews the bonus features on the Blu-ray release of Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle… I thoroughly enjoyed Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, so when the opportunity came up to review the home video bonus features ahead of the film’s release, I jumped at the chance.  I was curious as to how they would address the original film with Robin Williams (hint: there’s a featurette for that!) and I wanted to see the gag reel because having seen a few movies now with Dwayne Johnson and Kevin Hart, I knew it should be comedy gold (it wasn’t). Like any home video release with more than just a trailer included on the DVD, the bonus features for Jumanji were hit and miss.  There were several throwaway features, but what saved the…
