The Sopranos on the surface was a mafia drama but it captivated viewership and a cult following by showing the emotional depths of complicated characters put in compromising situations. Contrasting the world of organized crime with the troubled family issues in the life of New Jersey Mob Boss Tony Soprano, played by James Gandolfini, made the show relatable while presenting a powerful character who had to reveal vulnerability to regain control of his life. Culturally,...

Light spoiler.  Doom Patrol is back! A lot has transpired since we’ve last talked about the show. SeX-Men have joined us, Cliff Steele steals fingers, and space travels have happened.  I have also started reading the Grant Morrison run on the comics which serves as the main inspiration for the show. To be honest, I’m a little disappointed in the comics. I’m still enjoying them and I think the show is a good adaptation. Rather...

DOOM PATROL SEASON ONE Last year Doom Patrol premiered on the flagship streaming service that is famously known as DC Universe. A service that has come to rival that of Netflix and HBO. It was Warner Brother’s big entry into the streaming wars. A service that has had the most subscribers than any to come befo- Ha-ha-ha-ha-Ha!!!! Barely anyone subscribed to that shit. Confusing, right? Who wouldn’t want a service that will one show going on...

This is it, the final episode of Cursed Films. It’s been a journey. Especially interesting now because I believe the order that they have the episodes for the Shudder extension on Amazon in the wrong order. When I cross-referenced the episodes on Amazon with the actual Shudder website and IMDB I saw that episodes two and three had been flipped on Amazon and I actually reviewed the episodes out of order. Luckily this isn’t McMillions...

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...
