The Boondocks (2005) Hilarious, provocative and poignant in equal measure, The Boondocks is Aaron McGruder‘s animated satire on the African American experience.

Reviewing My Childhood Reviews: Lady in the Water (2006)

ThisContinue reading “Reviewing My Childhood Reviews: Lady in the Water (2006)”


From my “Finally Saw The Bond Movies” article published on Facebook – August 11, 2019.

I’m super excited to seeContinue reading “JAMES BOND RANKED”


It’s the weekend and Covid numbers are sky fucking high. Here’s some stuff you can watch this weekend to help you forget about our predicament.

David Lynch is one of the best auteurs we have left. His unique form of ambiguous, dream-like and non-plot centric narratives has created great frustration and controversy among many audiences and a small portion of film critics, namely, Roger Ebert (R.I.P.). Ebert appreciated Lynch‘s technical proficiency and obvious talent, but was taken aback and atContinue reading “DIRECTOR SPOTLIGHT: David Lynch”

Shut up. You deserve it. I. Werewolves, Vampires and Incestuous Shape Shifters The Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf (1985) Also known by its alternate title Howling II: Stirba – Werewolf Bitch is a perplexingly awful follow-up to an already bad werwolf hit, The Howling.
