REVIEW: ‘Tokyo Vice’ is an immersive, stylish and clever neon noir vision of 90s Japan

Boyce Rucker, Staff Writer April 9, 2022
HBO Max’s “Tokyo Vice” takes us into late 1990s Japan, where the Yakuza presence affects the way policemen investigate crime and an American reporter’s efforts to write the truth. The series is based on the 2009 memoir of the same name by journalist Jake Adelstein, the first non-Japanese reporter for one of Japan’s largest newspapers, the Yomiuri Shimbun. Serving as the pilot’s director and executive producer, filmmaker Michael Mann makes a return to television after a long absence. A master of crime drama, Mann implants his distinctive procedural style and noir elements into the series. Based on its first three episodes, “Tokyo Vice'' is one of the most stylish and clever crime shows to grace streaming this year.

REVIEW: UNCW’s ‘The Moors’ mixes 19th century Brontë class and comedy with Hitchcock’s horror and suspense

Kiley Woods, Photography Editor April 8, 2022
Set on the dreary, haunting moors of England, this story features a twisting roller-coaster ride of events and secrets that cannot help but pull the audience in, only to keep them in the dark. Early uncertainty in the show is reminiscent of Hitchcock's mysteries such as Rebecca, with all the beauty, class and attitude of society women in Brontë’s classic novel Jane Eyre.

REVIEW: ‘Moon Knight’ is a strangely compelling addition to the MCU

Boyce Rucker, Staff Writer April 1, 2022
Disney+’s Marvel shows have so far proven to be strong additions to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While the movies give us the epic narratives factoring into a larger story arc, the shows give more personable stories. Ones like “Hawkeye,” “WandaVision” and “Loki” give us introspective looks into central characters that the films can’t always allot within a two-hour runtime. “Moon Knight,” the latest series, stands out for being the first Disney+ series to adapt a new hero to headline their own show. Its first episode out of six shows promise in the series being a mind-bending and exhilarating thrill-ride unlike anything Marvel’s done before.

REVIEW: Ben Affleck and Ana de Armas can’t save ‘Deep Water’ from sinking

Boyce Rucker, Staff Writer March 20, 2022
“Deep Water” is an underwhelming and unfulfilling thriller that offers no suspense or closure. It’s hard to invest in when its characters and story fall flat. The film drowns in mediocrity as it fails to capitalize on the opportunities to make it strong, particularly in Affleck and de Armas.
