Arrival

He Said, She Said: Arrival Review (2016)

Arrival is a much welcomed cerebral and emotional science fiction film that also carries a significant sense of tension. Where it shines is connecting Louise’s personal memories to help solve first contact communication …

Doctor Strange Review

He Said, She Said: Doctor Strange Review (2016)

Doctor Strange returns the Marvel Universe back to more personal storytelling. In it we are presented with the origin story of the ego-maniacal genius Dr. Stephen Strange and his journey to find and redefine himself in a…

The Martian

He Said, She Said: The Martian

Quite possibly one of the worst major studio scifi movies in the past few decades. Definitely the worst of the first decade of the 2000s. Just a horrible production of an even more horrible script, plagued by shoddy …
