I love Emma Watson. I think she is an incredibly classy, female-empowering, sophisticated woman, and she’s also a great actress to boot. So, when I saw she was one of the main characters in the movie Regression, I made a mental note to watch it. Regression is a “2015 psychological thriller mystery film directed, produced and written by Alejandro Amenábar. The … More Have you seen Regression?
Once again, here I am reviewing another horror movie. I’ve made my love for these types of movies quite known here on my blog, and further, what constitutes a good horror flick, in my opinion. Unfortunately, The Influence did not meet my criteria for what makes a good scary movie. In fact, I would argue … More No, you shouldn’t watch The Influence
I’m a sucker for medieval movies. I’m not sure what it is about a knight in armour, valiantly fighting in battle, but whenever I come across a movie with this trope, you can bet I’m tuning in. Hence why I’m offering my review of The King. Netflix’s The King tells the story of young Hal, or … More The King: a Netflix win
For my family, a passion for motor sports is a given. My dad has always been a gear head, and in time, I’ve become interested in the automotive world with his influence. My dad owns a few classic cars himself as well as a pulling tractor, so it’s easy to understand why him and I … More Ford v Ferrari: is it worth seeing?
I don’t consider myself to be someone who typically likes Christmas movies. I’m a bit of a Grinch that way. I’m not really sure why, but there are only a handful of Christmas movies I actually enjoy watching, and none of them are romantic comedies. You can likely imagine my surprise, then, when I went … More Ignore the reviews: Last Christmas is worth seeing
I’m a self-proclaimed horror movie buff.

I was scrolling through Netflix’s television shows the other night, looking for something to watch, when I came across Inside the World’s Toughest Prisons.

I may be slightly delayed in finally seeing The Exorcism of Emily Rose considering it was released in 2005, but hey, better late than never.

The Exorcism of Emily Rose “is a 2005 American supernatural … More The Exorcism of Emily Rose: an absolute horror movie masterpiece
When I first saw the trailer for Netflix’s In the Tall Grass a few days ago, I made a mental note to add it to my must-see horror movie list. It looked interesting, and when I learned that the film is based on Stephen King and Joe Hill’s 2012 novel of the same name, I figured it … More Is In the Tall Grass worth the watch?
I’m not really one for cheesy, feel-good movies. As you likely know, I tend to lean towards films that portray sinister, malevolent situations because I’m a sick soul like that. When I watched the trailer for Netflix’s Tall Girl, I assumed it would be a typical cheesy movie. But, as we all know, we shouldn’t … More Tall Girl: a Netflix win
Horror movies and religion can arguably be recognized as two peas in a pod when it comes to scary movies. More often than not, Catholicism seems to be affiliated with scary movies, and St. Agatha is no exception to this affiliation. St. Agatha is a 2018 horror/thriller flick, directed by Darren Lynn Bousman and written … More St. Agatha: not your average scary movie
As I stated in a post a few days ago, horror movies can be a hit or miss experience in terms of their execution. I’ve seen my fair share of both good and bad scary movies, and unfortunately, Malevolent falls under the bad category. Malevolent is “a 2018 British horror film directed by Olaf de Fleur Johannesson and written … More Malevolent: not worth the watch
Horror movies, as us horror lovers know, can be a hit or miss experience. Older horror flicks are even more risky, depending on the technology that was available at the time the film was made.

A few nights ago, my boyfriend and I decided to watch The Stanford Prison Experiment via Netflix.

I love me a pants-pooping horror movie, one that gets my heart pumping and results in me sweating profusely out of fear. You may think I’m a bit odd for my film preferences, but that’s fine. Anyways, since horror movies are kind of my thing, I’ve been wanting to see Annabelle: Creation, since I initially … More Annabelle: Creation – is it worth the watch?
Television is something I would argue we’re all relatively opinionated about. What we enjoy in a series may not be what someone else does, making the topic a rather subjective one. And while we may have different preferences when it comes to television shows, there are some that stand above others in terms of reputation … More This year’s best television shows
In lieu of my post a few days ago describing why Brooklyn Nine-Nine is such a fantastic television series, I thought I would draw your attention to Stephanie Beatriz, the incredible actress who plays Rosa Diaz in the show. Take a look at this stunner. Image from Wikimedia Commons At 38 years of age, Stephanie … More Profile: Stephanie Beatriz
I’m a tremendous fan of Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Andy Samberg has always been one of my favourite actors in Hollywood, and he does not disappoint in his role as Jake in the show, a hilarious and sometimes clueless detective in New York City in the 99th precinct.

In case you’re unaware of what … More Film review: Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile
I feel like a lot of people would agree with me in saying it’s quite difficult to come across a comedy flick nowadays that truly makes you laugh. And I don’t mean the odd chuckle here and there. I’m talking laugh out loud, clutch your abs in pain kind of laugh. Fortunately, The House is … More Film review: The House
When first heard about the movie The Perfection via my Facebook timeline, I knew it was one I was going to have to see. Why, you may ask?

Hey, I never … More If you’re a horror fan, you need to watch The Perfection
On Sunday evening, the sixth and final episode in the eighth season of HBO’s Game of Thrones aired, and by final episode, I mean final.

I’m a pretty big fan of Sophie Turner, and I imagine many other folks are as well. Likely because she seems pretty cool as a person, and she’s a wicked actress.

The second episode of the eighth season of Game of Thrones aired on Sunday evening, and you best believe I parked my ass in front of our television to tune in (as did most of the world, I’m guessing).

I’m reluctant to admit that it’s taken me until now to hop on the Queer Eye bandwagon, but man, am I ever glad I have.

But I have been on the … More This is why you need to start watching Queer Eye
