I sincerely apologize to any of my readers who don’t watch Stranger Things when I compose posts about the show. I was skeptical of its premise when it first started gaining popularity, and trust me when I say I resisted hopping on the bandwagon for quite an extended period of time. As you likely know … More Stranger Things – yet another update
As I mentioned a while ago, I’ve recently started watching Stranger Things. I just finished the second season, and while I have a ways to go before I’ve concluded the series, I have developed some opinions and have made some observations about the show I thought I would share. If you don’t watch this show, … More Stranger Things update
I am fully aware that I’m a little late hopping on the Stranger Things bandwagon. The show has been around for a hot minute, and while I’ve been wanting to watch it for a while now, I’ve been in a vicious cycle of watching and rewatching Vikings, Vikings: Valhalla and The Last Kingdom. If you’ve … More Is ‘Stranger Things’ worth the hype?
A few nights ago, Blaine and I decided to watch ‘The Gray Man’ via Netflix. I would like to take full credit for recommending this particular film to Blaine; he hadn’t heard anything about it, but once I told him I had heard plenty of good things, we decided to give it a go. ‘The … More Have you seen ‘The Gray Man’?
A few nights ago, before we snuggled up in bed, Blaine and I were browsing through Netflix titles, once again fighting the endless battle of determining what to watch. We were having some difficulty in choosing something, until Blaine scrolled past a movie called ‘Hustle’ which I had read and heard quite positive things about. … More Have you seen ‘Hustle’?
Podcasts aren’t new. They’ve been around for a hot minute, and most of us are fully aware of how great they are. Everyone but me, apparently, but I am pleased to report that I recently have begun to delve into the black hole of available podcasts, and so far, I’m really enjoying their existence. In … More The beauty of podcasts
For anyone who read the title of this post and rolled their eyes, internally thinking ‘did she not literally just write about this damn show?’ I request your patience. Yes, I did recently write a post about this show. However, at the conclusion of this post I said I would update all of you once … More Netflix: Valhalla – is it worth watching?
It is no secret that I have a slight obsession with Vikings and the Viking era in history. Ever since I stumbled across the insanely popular and successful television series ‘Vikings’, I have been positively hooked, and, I think, for good reason. Vikings, while a tad barbaric and uncouth, were rather remarkable people in terms … More Is ‘Vikings: Valhalla’ better than ‘Vikings’?
On Tuesday, my mom, my dad and I ventured to our local movie theatre to see the newest Top Gun movie; Top Gun: Maverick. We have been trying to get to theatres to see it for a bit now, and while our early attempts were kiboshed by wedding and farm shit, we finally were able … More Have you seen ‘Top Gun: Maverick’?
Allow me to stipulate that I do realize the film Mad Mad: Fury Road isn’t exactly a new release at this point. It premiered in 2015, and I watched it shortly after it was released. Between then and now I’ve watched a few snippets of the movie, here and there, for example, if I catch … More Can we talk about ‘Mad Max: Fury Road’ for a minute?
I was reading an article from Buzzfeed recently which detailed a compilation of horror movies that, according to folks who submitted these particular flicks for the sake of this article, were too terrifying to finish. I was curious to know how many of these movies I myself have seen, and most of them, I have. … More Here are some seriously scary horror movies
I’ve made mention of my love for horror movies numerous times here on my blog before, but I think it is important to specify that when I say horror, I’m referring to movies that truly scare the living shit out of me, not ones that depict an insane amount of gore. The term horror is … More Do yourself a favour and don’t watch the new ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’
I appreciate a solid comedy movie. When I say comedy, I’m referring to a series or film that has the ability to make me laugh aloud, and more than once. I can list on two hands the number of movies that are classified as comedies that truly make me chuckle, so I’m always willing to … More Have you seen ‘Tammy’?
You may be tempted to snicker at what inspired today’s post, but hear me out. The source may be a tad unconventional, but it is one, from my own observations, that most of us enjoy and appreciate; ‘Shrek’. More specifically, ‘Shrek the Third’ as Blaine and I watched it the other evening, and one of … More PSA: there really is only one you
Blaine and I, the other evening, once more found ourselves aimlessly scrolling through Netflix titles, trying to settle on a movie to watch. Netflix is great, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes I honestly feel as though it offers too much selection; you can spend two hours just trying to find something to watch. We … More This is why you need to watch ‘Indian Horse’
I realize I’m a little late to the party with this film review, but I figure it better late than never. To be honest, I kind of wanted to wait for all of the hoopla pertaining to the film ‘Don’t Look Up’ settle before I watched it, so that’s what I did. Blaine watched this … More Have you seen ‘Don’t Look Up’?
The opening of this post is similar to yesterday’s in terms of repetition when it comes to me making mention of things I enjoy and am passionate about. Yesterday’s post discussed my love for the television series Vikings, and today’s is, once again, discussing my opinion of a horror movie I recently watched. Blaine and … More ‘Ghosts of War’: a refreshing take on horror
A few nights ago, Blaine and I were finishing up an episode of ‘Queer Eye’ at his place. The episodes are roughly 40 minutes or so, meaning when it finished we had to find something else to watch. We wanted to switch it up a bit, so after browsing through Netflix, we settled on a … More ‘Midnight in the Switchgrass’: is it worth the watch?
There is a stereotype in existence that suggests ‘horse girls’ are weird. I’m not entirely sure how or why this stereotype came to be, but I would like to refute it, and strongly; I do not think horse girls are weird, and if anything, I think they’re, usually, the complete opposite. Any kid that becomes … More A moment of appreciation for ‘Seabiscuit’
When I was at Blaine’s the other evening, we were a bit bummed to discover that his Playstation was on the fritz and refused to load or play any films or television shows. At first, we thought his wifi network wasn’t working, but after looking it up online, we learned that the entire Playstation network … More Have you seen ‘Stop-Loss’?
My family and I had a bit of an adverse Christmas eve a couple of nights ago, if you will. Normally, on Christmas Eve, we attend mass and go to my Nagymama’s (Hungarian for grandmother) house with my dad’s sister, her husband and their kids. Unfortunately, the night before, my sister and I were, unknowingly, … More A moment of appreciation for the Shrek franchise
My mom and I, a couple of evenings ago, ventured to our local movie theatre to see ‘House of Gucci’. We both agreed we would go and view it together when we first saw the trailer for the film, and so we did just that and had ourselves a lovely mother-daughter date. I was a … More Ignore the critics and go see ‘House of Gucci’
I’ve seen my share of fighter/boxing/mixed martial arts (MMA)/ultimate fighting championship (UFC) movies. Typically, these sorts of movies are produced and executed well, as they often follow a protagonist with a harrowing backstory that overcomes significant obstacles to get where they are in their career. I’m sure some of us find these consistent tropes in … More Here’s why you need to watch ‘Bruised’
If you use Netflix, or the internet, for that matter, there is a strong chance you’ve either seen or heard of a movie titled ‘Red Notice.’ It’s somewhat taken Netflix by storm, and as of now, it is the most viewed Netflix movie of all time. Not bad bragging rights for anyone involved in the … More Have you seen ‘Red Notice’?
I have come to the conclusion that my fiancé, Blaine, has a man-crush on Mark Wahlberg. I can’t say I blame him, really, considering the man is a rather fine specimen, and the reason I say Blaine has a crush on Marky-Mark is that whenever we are searching for a movie to watch on Netflix, … More Have you seen ‘Pain & Gain’?
With Halloween upon us, one thing is for certain; spooky season is here, in full swing, and I am living for it. Halloween is, undoubtedly, my favourite time of year. I love everything about it, for several reasons, but one reason that stands out in particular is that it is a time of year in … More Here are some spooky movie recommendations for this Halloween
As of late, there has been a heck of a lot of conversation pertaining to a newly released show on Netflix titled ‘Squid Game.’ I read that this show is on track to becoming Netflix’s most successful show ever, and from what I have heard about it, I’m not exactly surprised; ‘Squid Game’ bring a … More Yes, you need to watch Netflix’s ‘Midnight Mass’
Britney Spears, in my mind, will go down as the one and only queen of pop. This woman exploded onto the scene at the mere age of 16 and had the entire world watching, thanks to her incredible dance, music and performance abilities. She made herself known with influence and grace and quickly dominated the … More Have you seen ‘Britney Vs. Spears’?
Yes, folks. Here we are, yet again, reviewing a horror movie. I would say I’m sorry, but I would be outright lying to you if I did.
