Wow, remember when I said "I basically have [all the] time [in the world] to catch up on delayed streaming reviews"? If not, it's okay because I do...I said/implied that, thinking that I would be writing everyday and then staggering the releases of my review posts to gather a steady stream of views for weeks … Continue reading Amazon Prime Review: Hunters
I realize that there are all sorts of different activities you could find to fill your time (reading, cleaning/organizing, video games, etc.), but hey, I do movie reviews. That's kinda my thing, so I'm sticking to it. No, this is not a review post. Instead, I would like to make some personal suggestions for films … Continue reading Covid-19 Quarantine Watch List!

In fact, the group of … Continue reading Amazon Prime Review: Jack Ryan (Season 2)
Did you ever watch The Dark Crystal growing up? Although not one of my "favorite" films, my first interaction with the 1982 Jim Henson/Frank Oz puppet film was through a recorded VHS tape I found stashed among our old movie collection as a kid. I literally pulled it out one day, thought "what movie is … Continue reading Netflix Review: The Dark Crystal, Age of Resistance

Apparently the sprawling city titles and narrative-inducing self-pity couldn't stave off … Continue reading Netflix Review: Mindhunter (Seasons 1-2)
