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 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
A few nights ago Blaine and I decided to watch Papillon.

As … More Papillion: an emotionally charged movie of perseverance
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’ll … More Is ‘The Haunting of Bly Manor’ worth the watch?
I’m a big fan of Lily Collins.

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.

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?
I have a soft spot for modern-day Westerns. I enjoy the odd older Western from time to time, and I can certainly appreciate them for being the foundation of the Western genre, but personally, contemporary versions of the category are my preference.

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

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? When the release of a horror flick is met with statements that people became physically ill watching it, you can bet it intrigued me.

I watched The Strangers: Prey at Night recently with my boyfriend, and I can say with complete honesty that, in my opinion, it is one of the worst executed horror flicks I’ve seen as of late. I’m not even trying to be overly critical or harsh. It’s just a really shitty movie. It depicts a … More Film Review: The Strangers: Prey at Night
I realize I’ve been offering a lot of film review as of late, but hey, I’ve seen a few movies I wanted to review.

This movie has been out for a while now, and it’s been teasing me on my Netflix recommendations for … More Film review: Pompeii
I’m not going to lie, the Netflix description for this film made it sound pretty darn good. “An ambitious reporter comes face-to-face with the inexplicable when she travels to Romania to investigate a nun’s suspicious and brutal death.” Two minutes into the movie, the credits revealed something even more enticing; the phrase, “inspired by actual … More Film review: The Crucifixion
I’ll be honest in saying that one of the main reasons I decided to curl up and watch Netflix’s Bird Box is because of all of the hype I saw about it via social media.
