21 Best X-Files Episodes

The X-Files is probably the best TV procedural of the 1990s. However, I never got around to watching it until college because my dad didn’t like David Duchovney. Me? I really like David Duchovney and I really like Gillian Anderson. I also really like spooky creatures, alien mysteries, well-placed jokes, and sliceable sexual tension, soContinue reading “21 Best X-Files Episodes”

2022 Movie Reviews: OOPS ALL TUBI!

Oscar season is heating up which means there are several great titles being released in theaters and over-streaming right now. However, we’re going to say ‘no thanks’ to all that and instead focus on the rotting celluloid waste stinking up the Tubi channel. Only available with 80-second commercial blocks every 20 minutes, of course! Relax,Continue reading “2022 Movie Reviews: OOPS ALL TUBI!”

Franchise with Me: The BEFORE Trilogy w/ Genevieve Rice

I can’t even believe it took me this long to get around to Richard Linklater‘s widely celebrated trio of meet-cutes – The Before Trilogy. Released exactly nine years apart from one another, each film in this trilogy follows the natural progression of a chance encounter turned romantic entanglement between an overly confident and compensating, butContinue reading “Franchise with Me: The BEFORE Trilogy w/ Genevieve Rice”

2022 TV & Movie Reviews: Harley Quinn / Pearl / House of Darkness

Two beauties and a turd. Harley Quinn The freshest take on a superhero property since Damon Lindelof‘s Watchmen, Harley Quinn is a proudly R-rated and surprisingly poignant animated half-hour comedy centering around Harley Quinn (Kaley Cuoco, fantastic) and her lover Poison Ivy (Lake Bell, good) as they bring chaos to Gotham and deal with aContinue reading “2022 TV & Movie Reviews: Harley Quinn / Pearl / House of Darkness”

The PUPPET MASTER Franchise: Part 1 – The Early Years (#1-5)

With 14 entries, I believe Puppet Master is the largest horror movie franchise of all time. A breakthrough hit for Full Moon Entertainment, Charlie Band‘s production company specializing in ultra low budget and cheesy horror/sex pictures, the original Puppet Master was the cornerstone for the company leading to several lesser (if you can imagine) horrorContinue reading “The PUPPET MASTER Franchise: Part 1 – The Early Years (#1-5)”

2022 Horror Movie Reviews: Barbarian / The Innocents / Watcher

One unlikely hero this week. Barbarian HOLY SHIT! What would you expect from a mainstream super R-rated horror movie written and directed by one of the former Whitest Kids U’Know? The answer is something a little tamer than Barbarian, which I’m still in shock that a major studio got made. Maybe it’s the soaring successContinue reading “2022 Horror Movie Reviews: Barbarian / The Innocents / Watcher”

Franchise with Me: Hannibal Lector Movies w/ Shawn Collins

There’s this man on the internet named Shawn Collins, who is obsessed with Hannibal the TV show. If I had to guess, I’d say he posts something on Facebook about or alluding to NBC’s Hannibal probably thirty-five times a year. Also “Collins” isn’t even his real last name, does that mean HE’S a serial killer?Continue reading “Franchise with Me: Hannibal Lector Movies w/ Shawn Collins”

2022 TV & Movie Reviews: The Rehearsal / Only Murders in the Building / On the Count of Three

The only easy watch is the one about murder. The Rehearsal (Season 1) The wildest thing I’ve seen on television since a documentary filmmaker unintentionally hot-mic captured Robert Durst‘s murder confession while he was peeing, The Rehearsal is alt-comedian (is this a term?) Nathan Fielder‘s follow-up series to Nathan For You. On that show, NathanContinue reading “2022 TV & Movie Reviews: The Rehearsal / Only Murders in the Building / On the Count of Three”

2022 TV & Movie Reviews: Better Call Saul / I Just Killed My Dad / Star Time

Law and order and utter chaos this week. Better Call Saul (Season 6, Part Two) Few series can boast a perfect ending – Six Feet Under, The Good Place, The Sopranos (in retrospect) – that’s about all I can think of. Not even Gilligan and Gould‘s universally praised previous outing, Breaking Bad, had a perfectContinue reading “2022 TV & Movie Reviews: Better Call Saul / I Just Killed My Dad / Star Time”
