Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood Review

By Tommy Gleason Rating: 7.1/10 A simple, nostalgic journey through the 1960s. Apollo 10 1/2: A Space Age Childhood uses animation and narration to tell a compelling story that is as relevant now as in the space age. The film follows one day dreaming kid gazing up toward NASA’s mission to the moon, as he […]

After Yang Review

By: Tommy Gleason Rating: 6.3/10 A slow, sociological film whose experimental cinematography provides a thoughtful filmatic experience building to a weak payoff.  After Yang is set in a futuristic time where people can make clones or buy robots to build their families.

Space Force Season 2 Review

By: Tommy Gleason Rating: 6/10 Budget cuts, love and foreign adversaries. That is the story of Space Force season two. The seven episode follow-up to Space Force provides a deeper emotional story, but lacks substantial humor. This season opens at the cliffhanger of season one. General Naird (Steve Carell) is under investigation by the Secretary […]
