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 year of 2020 arguably enabled more of us to tune into, watch, and quite possibly finish a wide variety of both films and television series, among other media productions. Thanks to the coronavirus pandemic and the numerous lockdowns it resulted in, a lot of us found ourselves with a significant amount of free time … More Looking for something to watch? Click here
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. Hit and Run “is a 2012 American action comedy film written by Dax Shepard, with David … More Have you seen ‘Hit and Run’?
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. When I wrote this post, I wasn’t too far into the show in terms of its seasons and the episodes within, but now that I have finished all of the released seasons (season five … More Is ‘The Last Kingdom’ better than ‘Game of Thrones’?
If you have Netflix, or pay any sort of attention to the successes of the television series and movie platform, you’ve likely heard, in some way, of a new series titled The Queen’s Gambit. Since it premiered via Netflix, the world has gone a little bit batshit because of it; chess sales, apparently, are up … More Have you seen ‘The Queen’s Gambit’?
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. This may seem irrevelant, but I am going somewhere … More Have you seen ‘Inheritance’?
Ratched made its Netflix debut recently, and because I’m a curious individual, I wanted to give it a watch. I wasn’t really sure what to expect going into the pilot episode other than I knew the show focused on a female nurse named Mildred Ratched, and because Sarah Paulson plays the lead and I enjoy … More Have you seen ‘Ratched’?
I apologize if it seems as though I’m giving an awful lot of television series/film reviews as of late, but I ask you to hang in for one more. I’ve been watching some interesting things lately, and I figure someone on the internet will appreciate my thoughts and opinions towards them. I hope so, anyway. … More Have you seen ‘Girls Incarcerated’?
Crime-based shows and television series hold a special place in my heart. That may sound a little odd, and there is a chance you’re questioning who exactly I am as a person based on this statement, but I genuinely find criminology-themed shows to be absolutely fascinating, assuming they’re well made. I’ve watched Netflix’s I Am … More Have you seen ‘I Am A Killer: Released’ ?
Reality television is something I have a love-hate relationship with. As much as I regret to admit I watch it from time to time considering it’s pretty ridiculous and dramatic, I also find it to be pretty entertaining, and it serves as a great option of mindless television for anyone who is need of turning … More Have you seen Selling Sunset?
As I’ve mentioned here on my blog before, I’m a sucker for medieval movies. I find it fascinating to watch depictions of what life was like in the medieval era, and I can certainly appreciate a man in a suit of armour. Moving on. The other evening, Blaine and I were trying to figure out … More Have you seen Gladiator?
Gymnastics is something that has a special place in my heart. I started the sport recreationally when I was probably about eight years-old, and although I didn’t do it for as long as I would have liked to (I grew to be too tall), I will always have a tremendous appreciation for it as it … More Have you seen ‘Athlete A’?
The medical realm is one that has always piqued my interest. I have a tremendous amount of respect for anyone who works in the medical field, regardless of their specific title or occupation, and I commend the people who risk their own health and safety to benefit others on a daily basis through their work. … More Lenox Hill: worth the watch
I’ve been having a bit of a rough go as of late. In addition to grappling with the daily stress associated with the pandemic we’re facing, and also the variety of emotions that have presented themselves as a result of years of racially-fuelled police brutality, I’m also dealing with a bummed hand, a urinary tract … More Here’s how to calm yourself down when you’re feeling overwhelmed
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
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. O the topic of Westerns, the other night I watched The Bygone via Netflix. The … More This is why you need to watch The Bygone
When I watched the trailer for Mark of the Devil via Netflix the other night, I was pretty intrigued. This film appeared to have a lot of elements I tend to appreciate in the horror film realm, and the concept seemed terrifying, so naturally, I tuned in to watch it. I sincerely wish I hadn’t. Mark of … More Do yourself a favour and don’t watch Mark of the Devil
I can recall watching the trailer for The Platform a few months ago via Facebook. My sister tagged me in it as she is fully aware of my love for dark and disturbing movies, and once I viewed the trailer I made a mental note to tune into this movie once it became available to watch. In … More Have you watched The Platform?
Trying to pick out a movie with your partner while browsing through Netflix can be a trying task. Depending on what both of you like and also dislike, it can be difficult to establish a middle ground and settle for a film that both of you have the potential to enjoy. Blaine and I were … More Have you seen Girl on the Third Floor?
Cheerleading is something I personally have never had much interest in. By no means am I attempting to convey the idea that I don’t care about the sport, because it has similarities to gymnastics which I did when I was younger. Rather, I’ve never been involved in cheerleading myself, therefore it isn’t something I devote … More Have you seen Netflix’s Cheer?
I recently finished watching The Witcher on Netflix, and because of the gaping void the absence of this show has left in my life, I had to figure out which show to begin next. I’ve heard good things about Vikings, and so I decided to give it a try and watch a few episodes. This choice should come … More Do you watch Vikings?
Game of Thrones fans, listen up; there’s a new series in town, and it’s called The Witcher. By no means am I attempting to correlate a relationship between Game of Thrones and The Witcher, because that would simply be incorrect. Both series abide by entirely different storylines and characters, but I suppose one could compare them in terms … More Have you watched The Witcher?
Henry Lee Lucas. Does the name ring a bell for you? If you’re a member of the baby boomer generation, it’s likely you have heard this man’s name before. If you’re like me, you’re probably wondering who the hell Henry Lee Lucas is, and further, why I’m bringing him up. I will gladly tell you … More Have you seen Netflix’s The Confession Killer?
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
