As you likely know if you’ve been following my blog at all, I thoroughly enjoy watching scary movies. Whether they’re technically a scary film, a horror film, or a thriller, depending on their genre categorization, I’m a sick bastard and like having the shit scared out of me. You’ve gotta feel alive every now and … More Have you seen ‘Alone’?
The idea of escape rooms isn’t exactly one that appeals to me. While I believe the concept of escape rooms to be interesting, I personally have no desire to be locked in a room with a group of people and battle against the clock in an attempt to figure out how exactly to escape said … More Have you seen ‘Escape Room’?
The other evening, once again, Blaine and I found ourselves endlessly scrolling through Netflix, trying to decide on what to watch.

A couple of nights ago, Blaine and I were scrolling through Netflix, trying to determine what to watch, when we stumbled across a film titled Hit and Run. We watched the trailer, agreed it looked pretty enticing, and decided to tune in.

Any type of media production associated with serial killers is one that seems to snag my attention. Like my dad said to me the other day, it is possible I should have studied criminology in post-secondary school since I find it so enthralling, but alas, here I am with an English degree. On the topic … More Have you watched Netflix’s ‘Night Stalker’?
I wrote a post a little while ago reviewing a new series I started watching via Netflix titled The Last Kingdom.

I know, I know. This movie certainly isn’t a new release; it actually premiered in 2007, but I haven’t gotten around to watching it until now. Perhaps you could say I’ve been allowing my anticipation to build. Like, really build. Anyways, because I just recently viewed this masterpiece, I wanted to give a review of … More Film review: No Country for Old Men
I think it is apparent that I’ve been on a bit of a history kick as of late in terms of the shows I have been watching. I recently finished Barbarians, and because I really enjoyed it, I thought I would start watching The Last Kingdom via Netflix as it, too, is a historical series. … More Have you seen ‘The Last Kingdom’?
A few nights ago Blaine and I decided to watch Papillon. Charlie Hunnam, who is arguably my favourite actor in existence, and Rami Malek, whom I’m also a big fan of, are the two main characters, so it makes sense why my interest was piqued in this film when I initially saw the cast. As … More Papillion: an emotionally charged movie of perseverance
I find it somewhat paradoxical that while I never enjoyed studying history when I was in school, I’ve always been very interested in certain periods throughout history. I’ve made mention that I’m quite intrigued in medieval history, and I’m also quite fascinated by the Vikings. Netflix recently debuted its original series titled Barbarians, and you … More Have you seen Netflix’s ‘Barbarians’?
When I caught wind a little while ago of a second instalment in The Haunting of Hill House saga, you bet your behind I was excited. I really enjoyed Hill House and would honestly consider it the best horror television series I’ve seen thus far, so my expectations for Bly Manor were pretty high. I’ll … More Is ‘The Haunting of Bly Manor’ worth the watch?
I’m a big fan of Lily Collins. I find her to be a talented actress, and while I really have no inclination as to what she is like in reality, I feel as though she would be incredibly polite and down to Earth kind of gal.

Ratched made its Netflix debut recently, and because I’m a curious individual, I wanted to give it a watch.

Reality television is something I have a love-hate relationship with.

I feel like action movies have a bit of a poor reputation in terms of the storyline they offer. Action movies can, on occasion, be so jam-packed with violence and explosions that they overshadow any evidence of human emotion, and I believe this is a major turn off for a lot of people. I follow … More Extraction: more than an action movie
Blaine is an avid action film lover. I enjoy action movies myself as well, but perhaps not to the same extent he does.

I’ve seen my fair share of fighting movies in my day, and I’ve found most of them to be extremely well done.

A few … More Have you seen Warrior?
I can recall making a mental note to watch I, Tonya when I first saw trailers for it quite a while ago.

Rosemary’s Baby is … More Have you seen Rosemary’s Baby?
The other evening I decided to hunker down and watch Don’t Breathe via Netflix. The movie was under Netflix’s Critically Acclaimed Movies category, and since I often am disappointed by the platform’s selection of horror flicks, I was hoping this one would be good.
