Review of “The Sandman” on Netflix: It’s Not A Complete Nightmare, But It’s Also Not A Dream

Review of “The Sandman” on Netflix: It’s Not A Complete Nightmare, But It’s Also Not A Dream

Netflix has not had a great track record with adapting books for their streaming service. A glance at ‘The Witcher and ‘Daredevil’, two examples of the many duds in Netflix’s catalog of book adaptations, is enough to convince me that caution is warranted when it comes to this particular project. But I was pleasantly surprised by the show. The Sandman television series is not a dream come true, but neither is it a complete nightmare either. It falls somewhere in the middle and while it may not meet everyone’s expectations, it still serves as an entertaining watch.

Introduction to The Sandman

Everyone wants to know what the Sandman movie is about, but very few people have a clue. The reason for this is simple: no one has been able to penetrate Sandman’s secrets. No one has ever come back from the Dream World and lived to tell the tale. However, there was one man who believed himself strong enough to accomplish this task. His name was Neil Gaiman and he wrote an incredible story that fans are still talking about today. The Sandman movie has been developed by Warner Brothers, and Drew Goddard is said to be directing. He is most well known for creating the television series Lost, which was on NBC. His previous work includes the film Cabin in The Woods which was nominated for four Razzie awards in 2012. Other than this, he has served as a story writer for television shows such as Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Alias and also created Jed Whedon’s short-lived series The CW’s Dollhouse.

Story of The Sandman

This is a story about a movie that, for the most part, has received positive reviews. It’s based on an incredibly popular comic book series. And it stars Hollywood heavyweight names like David McInnis and Nicolas Cage. But, despite all these facts pointing to “success”, somehow not enough people have seen The Sandman on the big screen to make this project profitable…yet. The Sandman is based on a comic series written by Neil Gaiman and is aimed toward adults. That alone gives the film a challenge in being successful, as not enough people go to see genre films that are meant for older people. If a movie targeted at teens were told the same way, it would be a sure-fire hit, because teens are what make movies successful in Hollywood. But not enough people go to see movies like The Sandman. But even with all this said, I still get the feeling that this movie will succeed. I know why. I know why because I have seen it happen before.


Among the movies to watch this weekend are Darlings and The Sandman

The Sandman is a New York Times bestseller and was first released as a comic book series in the mid-80s. However, this weekend’s adaptation on Starz is not only being hailed as one of the most beautiful shows on television, but it also has an all-star cast including Nicholas Hoult (Mad Max: Fury Road) and The 100’s Ricky Whittle. On top of that, it doesn’t have any pesky time restrictions like a TV show or movie — episodes run for an hour each. A bizarre mix of comedy and horror set in Los Angeles’ engrossingly cynical landscape, Fleabag is difficult to categorize. It’s both incredibly funny and incredibly sad; it’s unlike any show I’ve ever seen. From the creators of Girlfriends, this is one of the best comedies you’ll see this year.

The show is based on the play by Phoebe Waller-Bridge, who also stars as a version of herself in it. The series’ first season will be available to stream on Amazon Prime as of August 10th. This new indie film from director Karen Gillan (Dr. Who) centers around a young woman struggling to find her place in the world, despite a supremely happy marriage to her equally successful husband Ian (James Norton).
