A good one and a great one. The Kids in the Hall (Season 6) Some of my favorite memories from grade school involve getting home from school, fixing a fat kid snack, and jumping in front of the tv to watch Kids in the Hall on Comedy Central. I wouldn’t discover Mr. Show for aContinue reading “2022 TV & Movie Reviews: The Kids in the Hall & Men”
Wow, and we thought Season One was a hot mess! HOLY FREDD-A-RINO! 1980s America’s most beloved child killer is back to serve up 22 one-hour anthology episodes that make absolutely no sense. Like always, my fellow Fred Head, Audrey Farnsworth, and I chose six episodes at random that tackled terrifying subjects like animal testing, mimes,Continue reading “MORE FREDDY’S NIGHTMARES Episode Reviews w/ Audrey Farnsworth (Season 2 Edition!)”
An unexpected winner here. Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness The second Doctor Strange installment features some really incredible effects and some conceptually and visually inventive gags courtesy of Sam Raimi. He’s really winking at his Evil Dead trilogy – not only with all da zombies but with his wonderfully effective implementation of someContinue reading “2022 TV & Movie Reviews: Doctor Strange 2 / Heartstopper / Russian Doll”
One clear winner here. Ozark (Season Four, Part Two) Ozark was never a great show, everything it tackled with upper-middle-class white Americans choosing to get mixed up with crime and eventually being forced to confront their conscience was done infinitely better in Breaking Bad, The Sopranos, and a few others. However, at its best, OzarkContinue reading “2022 TV Reviews: Ozark / Pachinko / Tokyo Vice”
2022 Movie & TV Reviews: RuPaul’s Drag Race / The Northman / The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent
Everything was just shy of ‘great’ this week. RuPaul’s Drag Race: Season 14 For a season where every ten seconds or so, contestants are verbally reminding you of how amazing this season is and how amazing they all are, individually, the latest offering of Drag Race Proper is a bit of a letdown. Featuring someContinue reading “2022 Movie & TV Reviews: RuPaul’s Drag Race / The Northman / The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent”
**WARNING: This article has many spoilers. Only for people who have watched the show or aren’t planning on watching it. But if you aren’t planning on watching it, why would you be reading this article?*** I discovered The Sopranos when I was eleven years old and it was love at first sight. I even hadContinue reading “The Sopranos: Every Episode Ranked & Reviewed”
Everything Everywhere All at Once It feels almost dumb to be reviewing this now as word of mouth is already so strong for the Daniels‘ follow-up to their Harry Potter farting corpse movie that I think everyone is going to see it anyway. However, I want to articulate what I loved so much about thisContinue reading “2022 Movie & TV Reviews: Everything Everywhere All at Once / Memoria / Severance”
This quintessential American genre, the Western, is something of my blind spot in my movie knowledge. As a child, the life of a cowboy never really appealed to me, I was much more into cynical crime dramas and cheesy 80s horror cinema, widely known especially in the UK as the Video Nasties. I remember tryingContinue reading “50 Best Westerns of All Time”
Nothing bad this week. X Writer/director Ti West is one of the most interesting voices in modern American horror movies because he’s kind of like a bridge between so-called “elevated” horror of A24 (The VVitch, Green Room, Midsommar) and the always dumb but sometimes fun, mainstream trash. He’s not afraid to pick at greater ideasContinue reading “2022 TV & Movie Reviews: X / The Gilded Age / Bad Vegan / Worst Roommate Ever”
The Oscars are this Sunday and between some really weak, and to be honest, “safe” nominations and the whole Most Popular Movie Oscar in lieu of broadcasting important awards like “Best Film Editing” and “Best Original Score”, I decided to do my own thing. It’s the 2nd Annual Golden Shrimp Awards! Best Supporting Actor BradleyContinue reading “2nd Annual Golden Shrimp Awards”
