Another week in quarantine and another episode of Shudder’s Cursed Film. The film’s subject for this episode is The Crow, another movie that I had not seen until now. As always I feel that I must give a quick review to the subject film. The Crow is incredible. Though it’s backstory might be tragic (which we will be talking about later), it feels like a love letter to a man that should’ve been a star,...

Cursed Films is back! This episode has The Omen as it’s subject, a film that I actually haven’t seen before this episode. I did watch it before I watched this episode and The Omen ISSSSS… okay. It’s well directed but there isn’t really that interesting of a story and kind of wish that there was some more emotion to the film. All my feelings on The Omen actually sum up my feelings of this episode...

As we are all still stuck at home and still glued to our television sets, I have continued on this Marvel journey. And let me tell you, this is not an easy feat. Since beginning this journey more lists have appeared with slight variations to the timeline. Is the timeline I’m following correct? I have no idea! Does it truly matter in the grand Marvel scheme of things? Probably not. The movies are in correct...

As we’re all sitting in our homes watching Netflix and downloading porn … uhh…I mean Zoom, we’ve been hit with memes and videos all surrounding the craziness that is Corona/COVID-19. I finally decided to take a break from the news reports and group texts spouting conspiracy theories and went to my happy place, YouTube. The usual “suggested” videos came up: Drag Queens Being Fierce, Ryan Gosling Shirtless, and Bill Hader SNL Sketches. After watching the sex scene from The Notebook...

Tiger King is the newest smash sensation to hit the Netflix streaming platform that has been graded with a rare 100% from Rotten Tomatoes. Tiger King is the story of the exotic pet industry, private zoos, and the eccentric people who run this controversial trade. Exotic pets are rare or unusual animals that are held in captivity for human amusement, most notably in this story would be big cats like tigers and lions but many...

From Ted Bundy to Joe Goldberg, Joe takes the cake in 2020 as our favorite serial-killing sociopath. Joe, in many ways, is characterized as the “perfect boyfriend”– he is a smooth talker, and invests more than any man in the modern age of dating normally would–aside from the creepy stalking and, you know, murdering, of course. The phenomenon of women fetishizing serial killers is not necessarily something new, but it is something that lacks in-depth...

The Star Wars Universe is a deep and vast chasm of the imagination that has been spun into an endless tapestry of movies, toys, and novels. Jon Favreau’s “The Mandalorian” is one of the most original adaptations of this bewildering saga. This tale follows an unnamed Mandalorian bounty hunter played by Pedro Pascal on adventures that land him in a situation that pits him against some of the final remnants of the Galactic Empire. Though...

In a world full of monsters, men, elves, and dwarves, the new Netflix series, The Witcher, is a must-see for viewers that are looking for their good ole’ fantasy-fix. Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, and Harry Potter fans—I’m looking at you. While all three fantasy-hit series were nothing short of Hollywood successes, The Witcher has quite a few unique qualities going for it—a female executive producer for one, and a storyline featuring strong...

The newest steaming app to hit the internet is the long awaited Disney+, when this was first announced many people (including myself) thought this translated to the full Disney catalogue being released to the public. As many of us found out this was not the case. When I was growing up Disney would “open the vault” and release old footage of theme parks, imagineers, and shorts that had not been available to the public every...
