Very Much Alive | “Dead to Me” Season 2 Netflix Series Review

In preparation for this review, I re-watched “Dead to Me” Season 1, and little did I know, I forgot that I watched the entire thing. For me, “Dead to Me” came, went, and despite the fact that it ended on a cliffhanger, I didn’t necessarily need more of it.  However, I heard Season 2 was much better, and thus I had to catch up. And because … Continue reading Very Much Alive | “Dead to Me” Season 2 Netflix Series Review

In The Shadow Of Hollwood | “Tangerine” 2015 Movie Review

Great films have virtually no fat on them, with each scene and sequence leading into the next, progressing the plot, enriching the world of the film, or highlighting deep themes prevalent in the film. 2015’s “Tangerine” is one such great film.  I first heard of “Tangerine” via RedLetterMedia’s popular “Half in the Bag” web series, in which they compared it to 2017’s “The Florida Project”, … Continue reading In The Shadow Of Hollwood | “Tangerine” 2015 Movie Review

Oddly Trumpian | “Joe” 1970 Cannon Movie Review

If you’re unfamiliar with Cannon Films, 1970’s “Joe” is a strange introduction. Cannon Films operated from 1967 to 1994, and made their name by extensively investing in the home video market, garnering the reputation of producing absolutely crazy but fun low to medium quality films. If you’ve seen RedLetterMedia’s “Best of the Worst” YouTube series, which focuses exclusively on direct-to-VHS films from yesteryear, you’ll know … Continue reading Oddly Trumpian | “Joe” 1970 Cannon Movie Review

The Price Of Militarization | “Waco” 2018 TV Miniseries Review

Every now and again, a series based on true events finds its way to Netflix, and it hits hard. Last year, one of the most notable biopic series was “When They See Us,” a heartbreaking miniseries on the Central Park Five, who were sent to prison as children in the 90s for a crime they did not commit. This year, we get “Waco,” a six-episode … Continue reading The Price Of Militarization | “Waco” 2018 TV Miniseries Review

Out Of This World | “Solar Opposites” Season 1 Hulu TV Series Review

Hulu’s “Solar Opposites”, which premiered yesterday, is not explicitly a “Rick and Morty” spinoff show, but it might as well be. The show follows a family of aliens who escaped their dying home planet with a Pupa (Sagan McMahan) that is meant to terraform an abandoned planet into a new home for them. Unfortunately, they crash-landed on an already overpopulated planet (Earth), and must learn … Continue reading Out Of This World | “Solar Opposites” Season 1 Hulu TV Series Review

“Vampire: The Masquerade” Meets “The Office” | “What We Do in the Shadows” Season 1 TV Series Review

Intro: Pardon the pun but Vampires in pop culture seem to be having a bit of a resurrection in the recent years, either with shows like Netflix’s “Dracula” and “The Strain,” video games like “Vampyr” and “Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2”, and of course movies like the original “What We Do in the Shadows” from 2014. This review will be looking at the second … Continue reading “Vampire: The Masquerade” Meets “The Office” | “What We Do in the Shadows” Season 1 TV Series Review

Ending a Great Story | “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” Season 7 Episode 12: Victory and Death Review

Some spoilers up ahead.  It’s all been building up to this. Order 66, which I admit I never thought Ahsoka Tano (Ashley Eckstein) would have to go through, seeing as she isn’t a jedi for all of Season 7 (the show even plays off of this technicality during its climax, but apparently she and former Sith Lord Darth Maul [Sam Witwer] were specially tagged for … Continue reading Ending a Great Story | “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” Season 7 Episode 12: Victory and Death Review

Ricky Gervais Being Sad All the Time … Again! | “After Life” Season 2 Netflix Series Review

Netflix’s “After Life” Season 1 is like a lot of Netflix shows in which, for a brief moment, it’s the most amusing thing you can think about, but it’s quickly forgotten when something else comes along.  For me, this was so much so that I realized I never got around to reviewing season 1, so here are my thoughts: It’s fine. What made season 1 … Continue reading Ricky Gervais Being Sad All the Time … Again! | “After Life” Season 2 Netflix Series Review

A Crass, Shlocky McG Comedy | “The Babysitter” 2017 Netflix Movie Review

I would like to start out this review by saying I’m a huge “Supernatural” fan, a show about two brothers hunting monsters produced by McG that, while mostly serious, has its fair share of comedic moments — there are even a few parody episodes that are straight-up comedies. McG’s 2017 Netflix horror-comedy “The Babysitter” is like one of those episodes, but made into a full-length … Continue reading A Crass, Shlocky McG Comedy | “The Babysitter” 2017 Netflix Movie Review

Give Them a Budget | “Don’t Let Them In” (2020) Low-Budget Movie Review

I’ve been watching a lot of awful horror films on Hulu recently. It’s gotten to the point where I’m almost horror-ed out, as it’s beyond me why multimillion dollar productions can’t for the life of them get the basics of filmmaking 101 down (I’m looking at you, “Into the Dark: Down” and “Pet Sematary” remake), So when I was given a screener for the ultra-low budget British … Continue reading Give Them a Budget | “Don’t Let Them In” (2020) Low-Budget Movie Review
