6 Things We Learned from the Get Out Blu-ray

Get Out isn’t just a movie, it’s a uniquely celebrated, distinctive experience. It’s one of those rare movies that becomes a cultural talking point, an exciting and insightful commentary about our times. It’s also a fantastically entertaining horror movie, so it became that movie you absolutely HAD to see.

Into the Badlands: Season 2 Review

Note: this is a mostly spoiler-free review of Into the Badlands Season 2. I’ll discuss basic character and plot details but avoid getting too deep into specifics. 

Initially, it seemed like AMC might have chosen a bad time to debut Into the Badlands: Season 2. The show risked having its thunder stolen by Netflix’s Iron Fist series, with both debuting within a couple days of each other. But if anything, the timing only worked in AMC’s favor. Iron Fist went on to be a pretty resounding critical disappointment, whereas Into the Badlands cemented its status as the best martial arts show on the air.

“Bigger and better” really was the dominant theme of Season 2. The cast grew. There were more episodes to work with. The fight scenes became even more ambitious and epic. Even the general scope of the series received a boost. With production shifting from New Orleans to Ireland this season, creators/showrunners Alfred Gough and Miles Millar were free to open up the show and truly reflect the scope of this post-apocalyptic universe. All of these factors contributed to an improved second season.
