Netflix’s Castlevania Turns the Video Game Series Into a Bloody Great TV Show

Castlevania became a classic video game franchise on the strength of labyrinthine level design, endearingly stilted dialogue, and bombastic aesthetics. The Netflix series based on the Konami property doesn’t use those elements in exactly the same way but finds its own path to being a great adaptation of the games’ whip-cracking, demon-killing lore.

Conversations With God: How Chris Obi Deals With (Playing) Death on American Gods

Most times when we see the personification of death in fiction, it’s presented as a cold or grim persona.

And that’s largely due to the performance of actor Chris Obi. Read More >>

Genre-Blending Genius Edgar Wright Talks Ant-Man, Baby Driver and Grand Theft Auto

At first glance, Baby Driver doesn’t look like it uses genre conventions in the way that Edgar Wright’s other works have. While you can easily see the homages to zombie horror and paranoid sci-fi in Shaun of the Dead and World’s End, the fusion at the heart of Baby Driver’s DNA is initially more elusive to parse. But once you put sunglasses on and deconstruct it, it’s right there: the new movie is a musical where car chases are the “songs.” And it rocks. Read More >>

Ghost in the Shell Delivers a Beautiful but Ultimately Empty Adaptation of an Anime Classic

Major Mira Killian doesn’t remember who she was before. Now the character played by Scarlett Johansson is living inside a different kind of body about to start a different kind of life. She effortlessly leaps and shoots across a deliriously oversaturated cityscape with power and purpose. There’s something wrong at the heart of it all, with her sense of her (own) self. It’s a problem that Ghost in the Shell never really explores in any satisfying way. Read More >>
