Film review: Within

Last weekend I watched Within with my boyfriend, Blaine. The movie description provided by Netflix seemed intriguing, so we figured we would give it a go. We hadn’t viewed a horror flick in a while, and this one seemingly fit the bill. Starring Michael Vartan as John Alexander, Erin Moriarty as Hannah, Alex’s daughter, Nadine … More Film review: Within

The Haunting of Hill House: final thoughts

Alas, I have finished the ten-episode first season of The Haunting of Hill House. Seriously, if you haven’t familiarized yourself with this Netflix original series, I highly recommend doing so. I’m pretty bummed it’s only ten episodes, because that’s how damn good this show is. But, at the same time, perhaps it’s best that it’s … More The Haunting of Hill House: final thoughts

Ed Gein: the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre

After viewing Leatherface, which I reviewed in yesterday’s post, I thought I would take it upon myself to do some research and determine whether or not the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise was inspired by true events. To my complete horror, I learned that it is, loosely. Ed Gein lived in a farmhouse in Wisconsin, which would later be referred … More Ed Gein: the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Profile: Emilia Clarke

Because I’m a massive Game of Thrones fan, it’s safe for anyone to assume that I’m also a massive fan of a majority of the cast, specifically Emilia Clarke. This woman is so damn classy, goofy and wonderful, and her ability to be all of these things simultaneously is one of the few reasons I’m such … More Profile: Emilia Clarke

The 2018 Emmys

This year’s 70th Emmys took place on Monday evening in Los Angeles, so I figured it would make sense to summarize the winners to save time for all of you. Marvelous Mrs. Maisel from Amazon took the lead in terms of most Emmys won. Receiving five for the evening, the show was recognized for its comedy … More The 2018 Emmys

Brooklyn Nine-Nine

I’m inclined to categorize my sense of humour as slightly demented with a hint of immaturity, so you can imagine my delight when I sat down and watched an episode of Brooklyn Nine-Nine and learned the humour of the show matches my own quite well. I had heard about this show several times before I … More Brooklyn Nine-Nine

The Conjuring

Before anyone accuses me of seriously lacking in my horror movie viewing, rest assured, I have seen the Conjuring more than once, and yes, I saw it when it was released a while back. The reason I am discussing it here present day is that I got together with some of my friends the other … More The Conjuring

Why Mother! Is More Than Just A Psychological Thriller

I can recall when the movie Mother! came out in 2017. I viewed the trailer for it and was extremely intrigued, as it looked rather eerie and somewhat sinister. Fast forward over a year later, and I have now finally watched this film (the other evening with my boyfriend, to be specific). I have not … More Why Mother! Is More Than Just A Psychological Thriller

Why ‘Black Panther’ Is More Than A Superhero Movie

Black Panther is arguably a common topic of conversation as of late, and with good reason.

Jordan, Lupita Nyong’o, and Daniel Gurira. Black Panther has earned … More Why ‘Black Panther’ Is More Than A Superhero Movie

Think You Know Everything About Harry Potter?

I came across an interesting article a couple of days ago discussing some potentially unknown facts about the Harry Potter series. I personally consider myself a Potterhead, but there were some items discussed in the article I was unaware of. Harry and J.K. Rowling share the same birthday (June 31) Rowling developed the names of the four Hogwarts houses … More Think You Know Everything About Harry Potter?
