I remember watching He-Man and the Masters of the Universe (1983-1985) as a young person, and at the time I really enjoyed it. Though it hasn’t aged particularly well. And that’s to be expected when you’re dealing with characters designed to appeal mainly to young boys, with names like Stinkor (a skunk-man), Triclops (a man […]
Netflix earlier today dropped the official trailer for Fear Street, a trilogy of films based on the novels – Young Adult, I believe – of R.L. Stine and while I’m not particularly enamored of way the adverts seem to be implying that they’re perhaps way too similar to American Horror Story (an anthology series that […]
I REALLY like this trailer! It revolves around a couple who’re immigrating from Sudan and despite the fact that it appears that they’ve escaped from a really violent situation in their former home country they encounter horrors of a supernatural variety that they could never have anticipated. The immigrant experience is ripe for the horror […]
Netflix’s The OA had been officially cancelled after two seasons and I’m oddly sanguine about it. The series is so odd and quirky that while I’ll miss it, I couldn’t imagine where it would go had there been a third season. And let’s be honest. I’d prefer The OA to end at the top of […]
A day or two ago the trailer for the latest season of Netflix’s Stranger Things franchise, Stranger Things 3, dropped and it looks…fine. Not great, and definitely NOT an event though that’s okay in the sense that not everything has to be an event and there should be room for smaller-scale things as well. Which […]
Having seen 1982’s The Dark Crystal I initially wondered whom was resisting whom because if you’ve seen that movie you probably noticed that at the end that it tied up everything neatly. Looking at the trailer, it looks like Age of Resistance is a prequel and sets up and early chapter in the rebellion (?) […]
I recently caught The Bye Bye Man on Netflix, and the good thing is that it’s not irredeemably bad. Which still means that it’s bad, just not so bad you get angry at yourself for having watched it. It has all the elements of a really entertaining, well-done movie but the most essential element of […]
Blindspot is a fun, engaging episode of Love, Death + Robots. It’s not particularly deep but then again not every episode needs to be (I would go out of my gourd if every episode were a Zima Blue).
2016’s The OA was a pretty pleasant surprise for me. It was idiosyncratic and definitely should not have worked. And yet somehow it did. Really, really well. The sequel premieres on Netflix the 22nd of this month, and I for one can’t wait.
Welcome to the Final Destination-A-Thon! The bulk of the Final Destination movies recently turned up on Netflix, and I figure this is a good time for a once a day review of the series. The first Final Destination movie came out 19 years ago, and it doesn’t wear particularly well. The reason being is the […]
