I always give HBO shows a chance. I believe that their shows really only reach a certain demographic but I fall in that demographic so I’ll always give them a chance. I’ve known about Lovecraft Country since 2018 only because it has been on Jordan Peele’s IMDB which I have consistently checked for upcoming projects since the release of Get Out. I looked up the book to find that it is a story that is...

In 2018 Netflix released The Haunting of Hill House developed by Mike Flanagan. Not only did it prove, it cemented Mike Flanagan’s place in horror but it is arguably one of the greatest things that Netflix has ever released. A fantastically scary story driven more by emotions than the ghost. Even despite it being a self contained story Netflix renewed the show for another season but with an all new story to be inspired by...

I like Fargo, it’s a Coen Brothers masterpiece. When I heard a TV show was coming out with Martin Freeman back when I was in high school I thought to myself, ‘Yeah, I’ll watch it.’ Now six years later Noah Hawley’s TV follow up to the classic film has become the most enduring anthology series on air. This is a great show that is able to get some great cast members with my personal favorite...

Spoilers for The Boys Season One    Oy! It’s The Boys you, lot! Get together with your fuckin’ mates and have a blast. Man, it’s going to be embarrassing if you guys don’t read that in a very exaggerated cockney accent. This pandemic has been harsh on all of us. Stuck in our home with no one to talk to. Alone with you deep dark thoughts and maybe some prime television series. But you realize...

Spoilers. Also each episode had been written as they released so they reflect that.  Dumb Patrol Back with another episode of Doom Patrol. Last episode we were left off with Cliff being launched into space with Niles Caulder heading off to maybe killing his own daughter.  This episode follows Cliff as he crash lands back on earth and he has to journey back home. Rita decides to shadow a beekeeper to prepare for a role...

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,...
