REview: Uncut Gems (2019) | Addiction Comes In Many Forms

2019’s Uncut Gems was for me a pleasant surprise–though the movie, due to it’s particularly dark subject matter–was not ‘pleasant’ in the typical sense of the word. That’s not to say that it isn’t worth seeing, but it’s very much adult in terms of its language, themes and sensibilities. The movie is a treatise on […]

Watching October Faction…

I’m watching October Faction on Netflix, and it’s just not resonating with me. It’s been so hard to focus on it that I’ve been jumping between playing Tune Blast, watching Rolling Stone’s Useful Idiots AND an interview with Chris DiStefano on Tigerbelly (the latter I stopped because no matter how handsome he is, few things […]

REview: Sex Education, S2 (2020) | Simply The Best

Netflix’s Sex Education impressed me it’s first season, which pessimistically speaking, had me wondering when the show was going to begin to decline.

REview: Nightflyers (2018) | Season One

It began life as a short story by George R. R. Martin (A Game of Thrones, Fevre Dream, Wild […]

REview: 6 Underground (2019)

Michael Bay’s 6 Underground isn’t a good movie, though it is interesting, with some great human and car-based stunts. It’s also really expensive–and looks it–coming in around $150 million according to Screenrant. And I believe it, between the stunts and the locations, this movie oozes money. My question is why couldn’t a little more of […]

REview: V Wars (2019)

V Wars is a new horror series on Netflix that introduces a novel way global warming will change our lives. Namely. due to the effects of climate change dormant bacteria– actually prions–are reanimated, and begin to convert humans into vampires (!?). And I’m not a science guy and my only knowledge about prions comes from […]
