Preacher S02E06: Sokosha

Published on :

Preacher decides to throw us for a loop this week with the start of Sokosha. We start out with a couple of people we haven’t seen before. More specifically, a broke couple (Samantha Beaulieu and Damien Moses) being treated by a mysterious man only known as The Technician (James Kyson), who promises them money during hard times in exchange […]

Preacher SO2E5: Dallas

Published on :

After a cliffhanger like last week, Preacher opens in media res as Jesse (Dominic Cooper) and Viktor (Paul Ben-Victor) are tussling in front of Tulip (Ruth Negga). Jesse is coming to terms with finding out the other two are married. Tulip keeps emphasizing that they are getting divorced, but Viktor can’t help but be direct. It’s a […]

Preacher S02E04: Viktor

Published on :

This episode, Preacher confirms the saying we’re all familiar with; Hell is other people. For Eugene a.k.a Arseface (Ian Colletti), one of those other people in Hell is unfortunately Adolf Hitler (Noah Taylor) himself. After the cell block in Hell unexpectedly open, Eugene defends an old woman prisoner being bullied by a younger man. Hitler manages diffuse […]

Preacher S02E03: Damsels

Published on :

A huge dangling thread from season 1 of Preacher was Eugene a.k.a Arseface (Ian Colletti). After an encounter with Jesse (Dominic Cooper) and his Genesis powers, our young lad is stuck in Hell. Reliving the moment that gave him his horrific deformity over and over again while sitting in a grey prison cell. This moment – involving […]

Preacher S02E02: Mumbai Sky Tower

Published on :

Preacher pulled a double whammy with its first week. 24 hours after “On The Road” aired, we got the thrilling conclusion to Jesse Custer (Dominic Cooper) and The Saint of Killers (Graham McTavish). Despite his attempts to use Genesis on the cowboy on a rampage, Jesse is powerless. Well, it’s a good thing that axel grease […]

Preacher S02E01: On The Road

Published on :

Side Note: A recap for the second episode of Preacher season 2 that aired on the 26th will be coming later this week. Hello, Preacher fans! Welcome back to the congregation! Reflecting back, the first season of Preacher had a lot to live up to. Being based off a great beloved comic, fans were very skeptical about how it could […]

“Preacher” S01E10: Call And Response

Published on :

We’ve reached the end folks. Well, the end for now anyway. After ten episodes, Preacher Season 1 has completed its run. The series started on tough terrain, with meandering based around far lesser versions of the characters we have now. Then, we slowly but surely got a closer thematic adaptation of the source material. Still, Preacher had a lot […]

“Preacher” S01E09: Finish The Song

Published on :

Despite having a literal vampire as one of the major characters, Preacher rarely feels like a horror television show. This week, Sam Caitlin and his staff made up for lost time. This is definitely the goriest episode of Preacher, but also the most horror atmosphere driven. There’s a burnt up vampire, more than a few bodies and even […]

“Preacher” S01E08: El Valero

Published on :

AMC hasn’t been afraid to use explicit gore since The Walking Dead became their highest rated show. Yet, it’s rare that said use of gore has more than a passive affect of killing a zombie or shooting anyone in the head. This week, Preacher kicked itself off with a simple yet powerful use of gore. In a flashback, […]

“Preacher” S01E07: He Gone

Published on :

“Plot matters,” Cassidy says as he delivers another nasty blow to The Coen Brothers’ style of filmmaking. It’s a mantra that Preacher has finally decided to follow in the second half of its first season. “He Gone” continues the trend by making it perfectly clear that Jesse Custer’s done it now. After expelling Eugene “Arseface” Root to hell […]

“Preacher” S01E06 – Sundowner

Published on :

“Genesis? What like the band? Terrible name,” Cassidy says after hearing the name of Jesse’s otherworldly power. After five or so episodes sidestepping the central aspect of the comic’s plot, Preacher gets to finally putting a name on the divine entity that has possessed its titular creature. The aftermath of demon and angel sex backstory is confirmed […]

“Preacher” S01E05: The South Will Rise Again

Published on :

Last week, I begged Preacher to actually do something. After a few solid episodes of zilch happening of interest, “The South Will Rise Again” starts with quite a bang. We return to the Old West setting with our mysterious Cowboy, who rides into Ratwater searching for medicine to help his ailing daughter. The Cowboy witnesses the type of […]

“Preacher” S01E04: Monster Swamp

Published on :

Preacher is definitely not going to leave Annville any time soon. It’s something the pilot promised right off the bat, but “Monster Swamp” seems to have confirmed that the action will not be leaving this dirt covered hole in the middle of Texas as much as it will be coming directly to it… eventually. Much like AMC’s The […]

“Preacher” S01E03: The Possibilities

Published on :

Forward momentum seems to be a constant cocktease on Preacher. In “The Possibilities,” we get total confirmation of a step forward in the story yet at the same time a step backward for our lead. It’s this kind of back and forth that makes me incredibly worried for the future of the series. One can see […]

“Warcraft” (2016): Big Budget CG Cannot Save The Film From Bad Dialog and Wooden Acting

Published on :

Warcraft is a curious, if disparaging, statement on modern studio filmmaking, prophesying that the future of summer, big budget, event films is in dire jeopardy. The film contains well crafted CG effects and fully realized worlds of imagination and splendor. The creativity that is found in the designs and execution of the orcs, creatures and […]
