I don’t fault the series for this as Friday the 13th never aspired to be anything more than straightforward genre fun. In many ways, it has already exceeded that goal, still going strong after 40 years even with its relatively simple formula. I’m a … Continue reading The Tragedy of Jason Voorhees – ScreenHub Entertainment

How ‘Halo’ Tackles Religious Extremism – ScreenHub Entertainment

Most people would praise Halo for its intense action before its intelligent storytelling. The classic science fiction shooter series certainly isn’t short on excitement, but the story it tells, particularly in the second and third games, is far more complicated than it first appears. When examined closely, the Halo series weaves a tale of religious fanaticism as complicated and rich with allegory as any, and … Continue reading How ‘Halo’ Tackles Religious Extremism – ScreenHub Entertainment

The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance is quickly becoming the latest streaming blockbuster on Netflix. Since its release, the Henson Company helmed dark fantasy has garnered almost universal acclaim by both new fans, and old admirers of the 1982 film that spawned it.
