‘Resident Evil 7’: A Frightening Return to Form
The risky creative decisions Capcom made to revitalize its struggling franchise all boil down to the shift from the third- to first-person perspective, resulting in a fundamentally different game from its predecessors—one that succeeds in catching up to modern standards where past games have failed.
The Walking Dead: "Last Day on Earth"
In spite of the lofty expectations and hype surrounding the character, Negan’s introduction as post-apocalyptic judge, jury, and executioner is an unqualified success.
The Walking Dead: "East"
The disparate plotlines are entertainingly tense but self-indulgent, and the episode’s lack of internal consistency is inexcusable even by the show’s own standards.
The Walking Dead: "Twice as Far"
A jarringly sick midpoint turn rescues the audience from another heavy-handed morality tale.
The Walking Dead: 'The Same Boat'
Women play a refreshingly larger role this episode, marking one of the few times “The Walking Dead” passes the Bechdel Test with flying colors
The Walking Dead: "Not Tomorrow Yet"
“Not Tomorrow Yet” consists of a disappointing smorgasbord of hokey conversations somewhat redeemed by a slickly filmed yet predictable heist on Negan’s compound.
The Walking Dead: "Knots Untie"
“Knots Untie” propels the typically meandering, loose narrative of the “The Walking Dead” into sharp focus
The Walking Dead: The Next World
“The Next World” is a quaint episode steeped in more sentimentality and figurative group hugs than “Full House.”
